GFORCE – Tool for Flight Simulations



In the last 3 years was our department involved in the Adaptive Cockpit System project. In this project were created new systems and modules in the cockpit of the F-16 aircraft so, that this system as a complex supports the pilot. The pilot of the jet fighter can in the fulfilling of his mission often get to many complex situations, which make extremely load and even overload. Created system should be able to determine the current state of the pilot, current state of the aircraft and its environment and based on these knowledge to determine, if the pilot needs the support and what kind of help. All the tests off-line and also on-line were made on the Generic Fighter Operations Research Cockpit Environment (GFORCE).

Reinforcement Learning In Control Systems For Walking Hexapod Robots

Ivo Hrdlička, Patrik Kutílek


We have developed a controller for a six-legged robot that allows it to walk on rough terrain or where mines have been detected. Intention of this article is to describe application of reinforcement learning methods for implementation of an acyclic walking. Cyclic methods of a walking are not feasible in difficult terrain because doesn’t consider subsequent undercarriage states of the robot in future. For basic (not so rough) terrain we used new designed heuristic algorithm. In complex environment, computational more intensive approach (i.e. Q-learning) is applied. Overall control algorithm of the walking undercarriage combines these two presented techniques. Results of the new algorithm of control to the problem of learning to walk with a six legged robot are presented by demining robot.

The Locomotion Control of the Concyclical Walking Robot

Patrik Kutílek, Jiří Kacer


The basic aim of the paper is to propose the solution of the concyclically six-legged walking carriage intended for the military purposes to walking in the highly broken topography. On the locomotion level are solved – with help of the intelligent control methods – both movement of the legs of the carriage and evaluation of the sensorial information from the sensorial subsystem of the robot. For fulfilling of these requirements are used methods of the machine learning without priory information about the conflict environment.

Contemporary Trends in Development and Modernization of Rocket Systems

Milan Machala, Radek Doskočil


This article deals with contemporary trends in development and modernization of rocket systems of field artillery. Especially reasons for modernization of rocket systems are mentioned. These reasons emerge from nature of contemporary armed conflict in the world. The main attribute of modernization is implementation of control system on the board of rockets.
