      Deep Learning and Particle Swarm Optimization for the Intelligent Rehabilitation Robot Control

      Bassant Mohammad Elbagoury

      Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO) for Intelligent Control of agent autonomous rehabilitation robot is a very complex problem, especially for
      stroke patients’ treatments and dealing with real-time EMG sensors readings of muscles activity states and transfer between real-time Human
      motions to interface with rehabilitation robot agent or assisted-device. The field of Artificial Intelligence and neural networks plays a
      critical role in modern intelligent control interfaces for robot devices. This paper presents a novel hybrid intelligent robot control that acts as
      human-robot interaction, where it depends on real-time EMG sensor patients data and extracted features along with estimated knee joint angles
      from Extended Kalman Filter method are used for training the intelligent controller using support vector machines trained with Adatron
      Learning algorithm for handling huge data values of sensors readings. Moreover, the proposed platform for rehabilitation robot agent is tested
      in the framework of the NAO Humanoid Robot agent along with Neurosolutions Toolkit and matlab code. The average overall accuracy of the
      proposed intelligent motion SVM-EKF controller shows average high performance that approaches average 96% of knee motions
      classifications and also good performance for comparing Extended Kalman filter knee joint angles estimations and real EMG human knee joint
      angles in the framework of Human Walk Gait cycle. Also, the basic enhancement of proposing PSO optimization technique for robot knee
      motion is discussed for future improvements. The overall algorithm, methodology and experiments are presented in this paper along with
      future work.

      An Artificial Intelligence Design Principle Toolkit for Teaching Basic Mathematics to Children

      Fatmah Abdulrahman Baothman

      There is a constant change in the techniques of teaching and learning as a result of artificial Intelligence (AI). In the past, the objective
      was to provide an intelligent tutoring system without intervention from a human teacher to enhance skills, control, knowledge
      construction, with emotional and intellectual engagement. The present study focuses on enhancing the learning capabilities of
      humanoid robot Nao and increasing his intelligence by activating multi-sensory perceptions among 3 to 7 years old children. Here, the multisensory
      perceptions include; visual and auditory stimuli modules, speech-related, and body movements. The design and testing processes
      were conducted by implementing an AI principle design, namely the three-constituent principle. The study has developed a toolkit that uses a
      mixed reality system architecture featuring different ways of interaction between a child and a robot Nao agent. The toolkit enables Arabic
      speech recognition, and the Haar algorithm was implemented for robust image recognition to improve the capabilities of the Nao during
      interactions with a child in a mixed reality system.

      In many develop nation share of older people is increasing by 0.2
      percent every year and 2 percent over a period of decade. Also, there
      has been a decline in life expectancy in member states over the time.
      With the increase in disordered lifestyle, psychological
      issues, genetic problems, infectious diseases, climate change and
      regular pandemic/ epidemic the quality of life is deteriorating. Just
      to add, recent pandemic is biggest example to make world realize
      that we right now in our biggest time to rethink about a robust,
      resilient, advanced and intelligent healthcare ecosystem. To cater the
      need the issues for healthcare ecosystem is currently dealing
      with data fragmentation, data accessibility issues, fraud issues,
      manual entry processes, unsynchronized approach, highly
      complex compliance frameworks, hideous information, inefficient
      processes creating delays in message passing, data security,
      breaches and importantly lots of administrative work done by the

      Optimizing Automated Robotics Processes with AI for Smarter Services

      Muhammad Al-Zahrani

      As AI continues to progress, one of the challenges we face is to involve robotics to be automated the tasks that are repetitive, dangerous,
      or vulnerable to human error. However, automation without intelligence creates a system that cannot respond to variables, new
      environments, or dynamic requirements. So AI provides a perfect platform to develop intelligent bots. By adding cognitive services to the bot,
      we can make our bot smart with capabilities like language understanding, image recognition, text recognition, translation, and more.

      Implementation of AGVs Indoors to Transform Warehouses to Fully Autonomous Environment

      Mahmoud Sabra

      Mobile robots are becoming more and more part of our industrial world. With the development of robotics, the design of the mobile robot
      has become conditioned to the function it has to fulfill. It is important to make a study and understand the difference concepts found in robotics
      in order to design the most suitable mobile robot for a certain industry. Holonomy is one of these concepts discussed in this paper.
      Holonomic and non-holonomic mobile robots use different wheels where the first is omnidirectional and the latter is limited with its
      movement. And thus, which robot to use remains a question in the minds of those running warehouses. In addition to that, it is worth to
      explore the different sensors used on vehicles in order to covert them to automated guided vehicles. Understanding the concept of
      holonomy, knowing the difference in the performance of holonomic and non- holonomic robots , as well as AGVs systems help in making the
      decision suitable for the warehouses.

        Wire Arc Additive manufacturing also known as WAAM is always been economical and highly efficient technology which is very suited for producing large and complex shaped metallic components using the process of 3D printing. In past few years, it is widely studied in various fields such as automotive, marine as well as aerospace industries. As WAAM has advantage of higher metal deposition rate, lesser machining cost, higher Buy-to-fly ratio and very lesser lead time in comparison to any other powder Additive Manufacturing processes. WAAM had always been noticed topic by many of the industrial engineers and researchers. If we compare WAAM process over any other traditional manufacturing methods, considering the complex shapes and high Buy To Fly Ratio (BTF), WAAM is always proved to be best of them. Therefore, having an advantage of comparatively lesser manufacturing cost, better quality and a higher efficiency WAAM became highly used technique for fabricating a component with a much higher metal deposition rate and least material wastage/least scrap. This paper provides a detailed overview of 3D printing of metallic object by inheriting WAAM technique as manufacturing method. At first, the review introduces metal wire and WAAM technique of 3D printing, followed by WAAM systems that are being used to manufacture 3D component, and analyzing which aims to study metal deposition rate and mechanical properties.

        The arrangement or programming of movements and groupings for a modern robot is commonly instructed by connecting the robot regulator to a PC, personal computer or (inner or Internet) organization. A robot and an assortment of machines or peripherals are alluded to as a work cell, or cell. An average cell may contain a sections feeder, an embellishment machine and a robot. The different machines are 'coordinated' and constrained by a solitary PC or PLC. How the robot associates with different machines in the cell should be modified, both concerning their situations in the cell and synchronizing with them.
