Adaptive congestion control in ATM based networks: Quality of service and high utilisation
(1997)To improve network utilisation and robustness for Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM) networks there is increasing evidence that reactive congestion controls are necessary. However the large bandwidthdelay product and the ...

Adaptive connection admission and flow control: quality of service with high utilisation
(IEEE, 1994)In this paper, we use adaptive feedback and adaptive feedforward control methodologies to avoid congestion at high server utilisation. This addresses the combined connection admission and flow control problem (generic ...

Article
Adaptive control of a class of slowly time varying systems with modeling uncertainties
(2005)In a recent work, a new linear adaptive controller based on certaintyequivalence and backstepping design, which promises a level of transient and asymptotic performance comparable to that of the tuning functions adaptive ...

Adaptive control of linear time varying systems
(1996)A new class of adaptive controllers for linear time varying systems is designed and analyzed using nonlinear design techniques and the certaintyequivalence approach. It is established that this new class of controllers ...

Analysis and passive control of a fourbar linkage for the rehabilitation of upperlimb motion
(American Society of Mechanical Engineers, 2015)In the last two decades robotic rehabilitation research provided significant insight regarding the humanrobot interaction, helped understand the process by which the impaired nervous system is retrained to better control ...

Article
Backstepping Control of Linear TimeVarying Systems with Known and Unknown Parameters
(2003)The backstepping control design procedure has been used to develop stabilizing controllers for time invariant plants that are linear or belong to some class of nonlinear systems. The use of such a procedure to design ...

Centralized, decentralized, and overlapping control designs for a segmented telescope
(IEEE, 1999)The accurate control of the segments of large segmented telescopes to achieve the desired shape could open the way for the construction of much larger telescopes with much better capabilities. In this article, we consider ...

Congestion control in differentiated services networks using fuzzy logic
(2004)The provision of quality of service (QoS) in a differentiated services (DiffServ) environment requires an adequate differentiation between highpriority/assured and lowpriority/besteffort classes of service in the ...

Effective control of traffic flow in ATM networks using fuzzy explicit rate marking (PERM)
(1997)In this paper, we describe the fuzzy explicit rate marking (FERM) traffic flow control algorithm for a class of best effort service, known as available bit rate (ABR), proposed by the ATM Forum. FERM is an explicit rate ...
