Evins R, Joyce SC, Pointer P, et al., 2012, Multi-objective design optimisation: getting more for less, Proceedings of ICE - Civil Engineering, Vol: 5, Pages: 5-10, ISSN: 0965-089X
Multi-objective optimisation can help civil engineers achieve higher performance for lower costs in their designs. This is true whether ‘performance’ applies to structural strength or energy use, or whether ‘cost’ measures financial outlay or occupant satisfaction: if it can be quantified it can be optimised in some form. By exploring trade-offs between conflicting objectives and constraints, multi-objective optimisation enables informed decision-making. This paper outlines the principles and benefits of multi-objective optimisation and the means of implementation. The complementary aspects of parametric modelling and optimisation are discussed as an aid to the flexible design of buildings and structures. A range of real design problems are considered, including structural and environmental examples.

Evins R, Pointer P, Vaidyanathan R, et al., 2012, A case study exploring regulated energy use in domestic buildings using design-of-experiments and multi-objective optimisation, Building and Environment, Vol: 54, Pages: 126 - 136-126 - 136, ISSN: 0360-1323
The newly-released Standard Assessment Procedure (SAP) 2009  underpins all energy calculations for Building Regulations compliance and Code for Sustainable Homes ratings for domestic buildings in the UK. A newly-developed three-stage optimisation framework is applied to the outputs of SAP for a case study concerning a 2-bed mid-level flat. Firstly a comprehensive full-factorial Design-of-Experiments analysis is performed to determine the significance of each input to the outputs of SAP (carbon emissions, running costs and overheating risk). This allows many of the inputs to be disregarded as non-significant. Next a multi-objective optimisation algorithm is applied to all significant variables to simultaneously optimise regulated carbon emissions versus capital and running costs, constrained by limits on overheating and roof area. Finally a more detailed multi-objective optimisation using greater precision is conducted on all variables that exhibit complex behaviour, i.e. which do not take a single value for all optimum solutions. Information is obtained concerning parameter significance and optimal parameter settings, which is presented as graphical design guidance using the process of ‘innovisation’. This will assist engineers in achieving high-performing, cost-effective designs.
Vaidyanathan R, Chen C-T, Jeong C-D, et al., 2012, A reflexive vehicle control architecture based on a neural model of the cockroach escape response, Proceedings of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, Part I: Journal of Systems and Control Engineering, Vol: 226, Pages: 699-718-699-718
This paper presents a biologically inspired architecture for rapid real-time control of autonomous or semi-autonomous vehicles based on a neural model of the escape response of the American cockroach, Periplaneta americana. The architecture fuses exteroceptive and proprioceptive inputs in a manner similar to the insect to produce commands for collision avoidance and, in some cases, orientation for target strike. It functions as a reflexive subsystem that integrates smoothly with higher-level planning and behavioral control systems. The performance of the reflex is demonstrated in simulation and in hardware experiments on both air and ground vehicles, even in the presence of noisy, false or disruptive sensor data.

Mace M, Abdullah-Al-Mamun K, Wang S, et al., 2011, Ensemble classification for robust discrimination of multi-channel, multi-class tongue-movement ear pressure signals., Pages: 1733-1736, ISSN: 1557-170X
In this paper we introduce a robust classification framework for tongue-movement ear pressure signals based around an ensemble voting methodology. The ensemble members are comprised of different combinations of sensor inputs i.e. two in-ear microphones and an acoustic gel sensor positioned under the chin of the individual and classification using three different base models. It is shown that by using all nine ensemble members when compared to the individual (base) models, the average misclassification rate can be reduced from 23% to 2.8% when using the majority voting strategy. The correct classification rate is improved from 76% to 92.4% when utilizing either the borda count or condorcet methods. This is achieved through a combination of rejection based on ambiguity in the ensemble and diversity in the misclassified instances across the ensemble members.
