Thanatkij Srichok, Rapeepan Pitakaso, Kanchana Sethanan, Worapot Sirirak, Parama Kwangmuang
2020 Processes  
The optimal parameters generated by the RSM-MDE method were a rotation speed of 1417.68 rpm, a welding speed of 60.21 mm/min, an axial force of 8.44 kN, a hexagon-tapered tool pin profile, and the SKD  ...  The proposed method combines the response surface method and the modified differential evolution algorithm (RSM-MDE). RSM-MDE is a method that involves both experimental and simulation procedures.  ...  However, even though RSM-MDE is an effective method for finding optimal parameters, it requires a high number of experiments, which results in high cost and time consumption for the experiment.  ...

Inference of perceptual priors from path dynamics of passive self-motion

Mario Prsa, Danilo Jimenez-Rezende, Olaf Blanke
2015 Journal of Neurophysiology  
In the latter case, estimates were biased toward the average stimulus prior and were well captured by an optimal Bayesian estimator model fit to the data.  ...  Therefore, when passively displaced, we seem to be able to build, over time, from sequential vestibular measurements an internal model of the vehicle's movement dynamics.  ...  Less noisy cues and reduced variance, resulting from optimal multisensory integration (Ernst and Banks 2002) , were probably responsible for smaller biases in the reproduced estimates in those studies  ...
