Touch-stimulation increases host-seeking behavior in Steinernema Carpocapsae

a new insect host. IJs invade the host – releasing their symbolic bacteria in the infection process – and resume development to complete their life cycle (Wright and Perry, 2002). The IJs are the only stage found outside the host, and the only stage known to participate in host-seeking behavior. The success of EPNs in biological control is dependent on a variety of characteristics including virulence, stress tolerance, and behavioral traits such as dispersal and host-seeking behavior. The host

Behavior Control Algorithm for Mobile Robot Based on Q-Learning

In order to adapt to navigation in unknown environment, the mobile robot must have intelligent abilities, such as environment cognition, behavior decision and learning. The navigation control algorithm is researched based on Q learning method in this paper. Firstly, the corresponding environment state space is divided. The action sets mapping with states are set. And the reward function is designed which combines discrete reward returns and continuous reward. The feasibility of this algorithm

The Study of Following Behavior to Bi-direction Pedestrian Flow with the Dynamic Preconscious Effect

In view of the preconscious behavior of pedestrian and walking speed differences, a lattice gas model of bi-direction pedestrian flow is established in this paper. According to the characteristics of pedestrian following behavior and preconscious dynamic change in different walking conditions, bi-direction pedestrian behavior model based on dynamic preconsciousness is constructed to study the bias decision-making behavior of pedestrian movement. Through numerical simulation, the influence of

BOTTOM-UP APPROACH FOR BEHAVIOR ACQUISITION OF AGENTS EQUIPPED WITH MULTI-SENSORS

While the top-down approach of artificial intelligence encounters the frame problem, the bottom-up approach based on a creature’s evolution and behavior is effective for robotic design of intellectual behavior in a specific field. We propose the Evolutionary Behavior Table System (EBTS) using a simple genetic algorithm (SGA) to acquire the autonomous cooperative behavior of multi-agents as the bottom-up approach. In EBTS, a set of rules is expressed as a table composed of sensor input columns

EFFECTS OF STAIRCASE ON THE SEISMIC BEHAVIOR OF RC MOMENT FRAME BUILDINGS

Abstract Staircase has a potential to change the seismic behavior of structures, but it is often neglected during design. In this research, effects of staircase in 5 groups including 27 models have been studied. Results show that staircase constructed with the use of RC slab, performs as a K-shaped bracing in longitudinal direction and as an inclined shear wall in transverse direction, so in both directions structural stiffness increases, period and lateral displacement of structure decrease

The majority of individuals in the ASD sample had an intelligence quotient of less than 70. Participants were assessed on standard social cognition and attention to detail tasks. Parents completed behavior questionnaires.Mean levels of autism symptoms were not significantly different for boys and girls with ASD, and they were significantly higher than those of typically

EVALUATION OF BEHAVIOR ESTIMATION USING WARD'S METHOD IN MULTIFUNCTION OUTLET SYSTEM

However the system is too simple to more reduce power consumption. Therefore we aim to reduce power consumption by figuring out a user's behavior to control home appliances. However to estimate user's behavior is difficult for the system. So we develop Multifunction Outlet System into a function to control home

TWO METHODOLOGIES TOWARD ARTIFICIAL TACTILE AFFORDANCE SYSTEM IN ROBOTICS

If the theory of affordance is applied to a robot, performing the whole process of recognition and planning is not always required in its computer. Since the tactile sensing of a robot is important to perform any task, we focus on tactile sensing and introduce a new concept called the artificial tactile affordance system (ATAS). Its basic idea is the implementation of a recurrent mechanism in which information obtained from the object and the behavior performed by the robot’s inducing the next

Effects of PINK1 mutation on synapses and behavior in the brain of Drosophila melanogaster

Mutations in the PINK1 gene are responsible for typical symptoms of Parkinson’s disease. Using Drosophila melanogaster mutant PINK1B9 and after PINK1 silencing with RNAi using transgenic lines, we observed defects in synapses and behavior. The lack or reduced expression of PINK1 prolonged sleep during the day (nap) and decreased the total locomotor activity during 24 h, in addition to a decrease in climbing ability and a reduced lifespan. In the brain, PINK1 mutants had a lower level of

UNMANNED AERIAL VEHICLE PATH PLANNING BASED ON TLBO ALGORITHM

Path planning of unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) is an optimal problem in the complex combat field environment. Teaching-Learning-Based Optimization (TLBO) algorithm is presented under the inspiration of the teaching-learning behavior in a classroom. In this paper, this algorithm is applied to design a path by the search angle and distance, by which a better path at higher convergence speed and shorter route can be found. Finally experimental comparison results show that TLBO algorithm is a

A review of privacy-preserving human and human activity recognition

, watches, and fitbits. These devices are spreading for anyone to access, so they can collect personal-area data easily and that data can be used to recognize the human activity. In human activity recognition, sensor-based approaches have been used more than video-based approaches due to privacy concerns when placing cameras in human personal spaces. However, data about user behavior that is continuously measured and generated by user-friendly IoT devices (Iwasawa et al., 2017) allow adversary to infer

A Relational Hyperlink Analysis of an Online Social Movement

considered as comprising social actors, with behavior that influences (and is influenced by) other actors and the system as a whole, and thus suitable for analysis using SNA.[1] Thus, there is still a lack of clarity in the literature as to why SNA techniques might be used for studying hyperlinking behavior, and how such an approach might differ from the other two empirical approaches for studying hyperlink data. In this paper we show that the analysis of a hyperlink network using SNA techniques is

MODIFICATION OF THE ADHESIVE FORCE BY CHANGING THE RADIAL REACTION ON VEHICLE WHEELS

courses of characteristic parameters describing the behavior of a vehicle for driving a conventional car on a sliding surface and compared to the 50 % radial reaction of a vehicle driven with the SlideWheel on dry asphalt. It is clear from the measured runs that it is possible to change the adhesion force by changing the adhesion weight transmitted by the vehicle wheels. The use of the proposed SlideWheel system is possible for the purpose of verifying vehicle stability, while improving the driver'

Administration of muscarinic antagonists induce changes in passive avoidance learning and in synaptic transmission in the CA1 area of the hippocampus

slope ratio were measured before shock presentation, 90 min after the shock, and 24 hour after the shock. Methoctramine significantly impaired behavior in the passive avoidance test but pirenzepine did not induce any changes compared to control. Our results showed that pirenzepine but not methoctramine supressed the amplitude of fEPSPs. On the other hand, intracerebroventricular methoctramine administration impaired passive avoidance learning and increased the amplitude of fEPSP.
