1. Development of a Model for Predicting Brake Torque Using LSTM and TCN ModelsTomaž Roškar, 2020, magistrsko delo Opis: The main purpose of this thesis is to compare two stateoftheart machine learning models, LSTM (Long ShortTerm Memory) and TCN (Temporal Convolutional Network), on an AVL List GmbH case use, where the goal is to predict vehicle brake torque. Dataset used for model testing consists of multiple features which are preprocessed using several preprocessing methods. For model implementation Python’s libraries Keras and TensorFlow are used. Results from this thesis show that TCN is able to outperform LSTM. TCN achieves lower RMSE on the test dataset and is significantly faster in training and evaluation.

2. Estimating piping potential in earth dams and levees using generalized neural networksXinhua Xue, Xingguo Yang, Xin Chen, 2014, izvirni znanstveni članek Opis: Internal erosion and piping in embankments and their foundations is the main cause of failures and accidents to embankment dams. To estimate the risks of dam failure phenomenon, it is necessary to understand this phenomenon and to develop scientifically derived analytical models that are simpler, easier to implement, and more accurate than traditional methods for evaluation of piping potential. In this study, a generalized regression neural network (GRNN) technique has been applied for the assessment of piping potential, as well, due to its ability to fit complex nonlinear models. The performance of GRNN has been cross validated using the kfold cross validation method technique. The GRNN model is found to have very good predictive ability and is expected to be very reliable for evaluation of piping potential.

3. Web based education tool for neural network robot controlJure Čas, Darko Hercog, Riko Šafarič, izvirni znanstveni članek Opis: This paper describes the application for teleoperations of the SCARA robot via the internet. The SCARA robot is used by students of mehatronics at the University of Maribor as a remote educational tool. The developed software consists of two parts i.e. the continuous neural network sliding mode controller (CNNSMC) and the graphical user interface (GUI). Application is based on two wellknown commercially available software packages i.e. MATLAB/Simulink and LabVIEW. Matlab/Simulink and the DSP2 Library for Simulink are used for control algorithm development, simulation and executable code generation. While this code is executing on the DSP2 Roby controller and through the analog and digital I/O lines drives the real process, LabVIEW virtual instrument (VI), running on the PC, is used as a user front end. LabVIEW VI provides the ability for online parameter tuning, signal monitoring, online analysis and via Remote Panels technology also teleoperation. The main advantage of a CNNSMC is the exploitation of its selflearning capability. When friction or an unexpected impediment occurs for example, the user of a remote application has no information about any changed robot dynamic and thus is unable to dispatch it manually. This is not a control problem anymore because, when a CNNSMC is used, any approximation of changed robot dynamic is estimated independently of the remote's user.

4. Prediction of technological parameters of sheet metal bending in two stages using feedforward neural networkJernej Šenveter, Jože Balič, Mirko Ficko, Simon Klančnik, 2016, izvirni znanstveni članek Opis: This paper describes sheet metal bending in two stages as well as predicting and testing of the final bend angle by means of a feedforward neural network. The primary objective was to research the technological parameters of bending sheet metal in two stages and to develop an intelligent method that would enable the predicting of those technological parameters. The process of bending sheet metal in two stages is presented by demonstrating the various technological parameters and the test tool used to carry out tests and measurements. The results of the tests and measurements were of decisive guidance in the evaluation of individual technological parameters. Developed method for prediction of the final bend angle is based on a feedforward neural network that receives signals at the input level. These signals then travel through the hidden level to the output level, where the responses to input signals are received. The input to the neural network is composed of data that affect the selection of the final bend angle. Only five different inputs are used for the total neural network. By choosing the desired final bend angle by means of the trained neural network, bending sheet metal in two stages is optimised and made more efficient.

5. Prediction of dimensional deviation of workpiece using regression, ANN and PSO models in turning operationDavid Močnik, Matej Paulič, Simon Klančnik, Jože Balič, 2014, izvirni znanstveni članek Opis: As manufacturing companies pursue higherquality products, they spend much of their efforts monitoring and controlling dimensional accuracy. In the present work for dimensional deviation prediction of workpiece in turning 11SMn30 steel, the conventional deterministic approach, such as multiple linear regression and two artificial intelligence techniques, backpropagation feedforward artificial neural network (ANN) and particle swarm optimization (PSO) have been used. Spindle speed, feed rate, depth of cut, pressure of cooling lubrication fluid and number of produced parts were taken as input parameters and dimensional deviation of workpiece as an output parameter. Significance of a single parameter and their interactive influences on dimensional deviation were statistically analysed and values predicted from regression, ANN and PSO models were compared with experimental results to estimate prediction accuracy. A predictive PSO based model showed better predictions than two remaining models. However, all three models can be used for the prediction of dimensional deviation in turning.

6. Intelligent system for prediction of mechanical properties of material based on metallographic imagesMatej Paulič, David Močnik, Mirko Ficko, Jože Balič, Tomaž Irgolič, Simon Klančnik, 2015, izvirni znanstveni članek Opis: This article presents developed intelligent system for prediction of mechanical properties of material based on metallographic images. The system is composed of two modules. The first module of the system is an algorithm for features extraction from metallographic images. The first algorithm reads metallographic image, which was obtained by microscope, followed by image features extraction with developed algorithm and in the end algorithm calculates proportions of the material microstructure. In this research we need to determine proportions of graphite, ferrite and ausferrite from metallographic images as accurately as possible. The second module of the developed system is a system for prediction of mechanical properties of material. Prediction of mechanical properties of material was performed by feedforward artificial neural network. As inputs into artificial neural network calculated proportions of graphite, ferrite and ausferrite were used, as targets for training mechanical properties of material were used. Training of artificial neural network was performed on quite small database, but with parameters changing we succeeded. Artificial neural network learned to such extent that the error was acceptable. With the oriented neural network we successfully predicted mechanical properties for excluded sample.

7. Characterization of Slovenian coal and estimation of coal heating value based on proximate analysis using regression and artificial neural networksDarja Kavšek, Adriána Bednárová, Miša Biro, Roman Kranvogl, Darinka BrodnjakVončina, Ernest Beinrohr, 2013, izvirni znanstveni članek Opis: Chemical composition of Slovenian coal has been characterised in terms of proximate and ultimate analyses and the relations among the chemical descriptors and the higher heating value (HHV) examined using correlation analysis and multivariate data analysis methods. The proximate analysis descriptors were used to predict HHV using multiple linear regression (MLR) and artificial neural network (ANN) methods. An attempt has been made to select the model with the optimal number of predictor variables. According to the adjusted multiple coefficient of determination in the MLR model, and alternatively, according to sensitivity analysis in ANN developing, two descriptors were evaluated by both methods as optimal predictors: fixed carbonand volatile matter. The performances of MLR and ANN when modelling HHV were comparable; the mean relative difference between the actual and calculated HHV values in the training data was 1.11% for MLR and 0.91% for ANN. The predictive ability of the models was evaluated by an external validation data set; the mean relative difference between the actual and predicted HHV values was 1.39% in MLR and 1.47% in ANN. Thus, the developed models could be appropriately used to calculate HHV.

8. Prediction of the hardness of hardened specimens with a neural networkMatej Babič, Peter Kokol, Igor Belič, Peter Panjan, Miha Kovačič, Jože Balič, Timotej Verbovšek, 2014, izvirni znanstveni članek Opis: In this article we describe the methods of intelligent systems to predict the hardness of hardened specimens. We use the mathematical method of fractal geometry in laser techniques. To optimize the structure and properties of tool steel, it is necessary to take into account the effect of the selforganization of a dissipative structure with fractal properties at a load. Fractal material science researches the relation between the parameters of fractal structures and the dissipative properties of tool steel. This paper describes an application of the fractal dimension in the robot laser hardening of specimens. By using fractal dimensions, the changes in the structure can be determined because the fractal dimension is an indicator of the complexity of the sample forms. The tool steel was hardened with different speeds and at different temperatures. The effect of the parameters of robot cells on the material was better understood by researching the fractal dimensions of the microstructures of hardened specimens. With an intelligent system the productivity of the process of laser hardening was increased because the time of the process was decreased and the topographical property of the material was increased.
