    A neuromorphic control system for a lightweight middle size humanoid biped robot built using 3D printing techniques is proposed. The control architecture consists of different modules capable to learn and autonomously ...
  • Folgheraiter, Michele (Neurocomputing, 2016)
    This paper presents a block oriented nonlinear dynamic model suitable for online identi cation.The model has the well known Hammerstein architecture where as a novelty the nonlinear static part is represented by a ...
  • Valagiannopoulos, Constantinos A.; Simovski, Constantin R.; Tretyakov, Sergei A. (EPJ Applied Metamaterials, 2017)
    The speed with which electromagnetic energy can be wirelessly transferred from a source to the user is a crucial indicator for the performance of a large number of electronic and photonic devices. We expect that ...
  • Valagiannopoulos, Constantinos A.; Tsitsas, N. L.; Lakhtakia, A. (Journal of Applied Physics, 2017)
    Giant in-plane anisotropy can be exhibited by a finitely thick periodic multilayer comprising bilayers of an isotropic noncentrosymmetric material and a non-dissipative isotropic medium of negative permittivity, when a ...
  • Karabayev, Omar-Sayan (School of Engineering. Department of Electrical & Electronic Engineering. Nazarbayev University, 2016)
    Due to the rapidly increasing demand for internet traffic, mobile operators have faced a problem of bandwidth availability. Since only licensed spectrum has been previously utilized by wireless networks, moving LTE to ...
