The synthesis of motion generation of crank driven four-bar mechanisms designed to go through two, three, or four precision positions based on optimization theory and rectified synthesis are discussed. The techniques for automatic synthesis presented hav
In this paper, a kind of systems which occured in various problems in aerospace technology has been studied. Twin lift system is one of its special case. Because of the special structure of the systems, the controllability, observability, stability and existence of decentralized fixed modes of such systems can be tested on matrices of lower order. The same conclusion is true for circulant composite systems.

This paper describes the theoretical development and experimental evaluation of a guidance system for an autonomous Load, Haul and Dump truck (LHD) for use in underground mining. The particular contributions of this paper are in designing the navigation system to be able to cope with vehicle slip in rough uneven terrain using information from an Inertial Navigation System (INS) and a bearing only laser. Results are presented using data obtained during field trials.
