Reliability of novel postural sway task test
Milan Sedliak, Jan Cvecka, Veronika Tirpáková, Stefan Loefler, Nejc Šarabon, Helmut Kern, Dušan Hamar, 2013, original scientific article

Abstract: The purpose of this study was to examine the reliability of parameters obtained from a novel postural sway task test based on body movements controlled by visual feedback. Fifty-nine volunteers were divided into two groups. The first group consisted of young (n = 32, 16 females and 16 males, age: 25.2 3.4 years) and the second group of elderly individuals (n = 27, 17 females and 10 males, age: 75.7 6.9 years). Participants stood in parallel on a computer based stabilographic platform with the feet approximately a shoulder width apart, the toes slightly pointing outwards, the hands placed on the hips. The computer screen was placed approximately 1.5 meter from the platform at a height of subjects eyes. An instantaneous visual feedback of participants centre of pressure (COP) was given in a form of a blue cross visible on the screen. Participants were instructed to keep the blue cross driven by movements of their hips as close as possible to a predefined curve flowing on the screen. Out of the 6 parameters studied, only the average distance of COP from the curve line and the sum of the COP crossings through the curve line showed high reliability. Correlation between these two highly reliable parameters was -0.89. There was also a statistical difference (p<0.001) between young and elderly in both the average distance of COP from the curve line and the sum of the COP crossings through the curve. To conclude, the novel postural sway task provides a simple tool with relatively low time burden needed for testing. The suggested output parameters measured are highly reliable and easy to interpret

The effects of aging on the rambling and trembling components of postural sway
Nejc Šarabon, Andrej Panjan, Mark L. Latash, 2013, original scientific article

Abstract: The effects of healthy aging on postural sway and its rambling and trembling components were studied. Young and elderly subjects stood quietly for 1 min in different postures, and with eyes open and closed. We found that age-related changes in postural sway and its components were similar to those observed in young participants in challenging conditions. These changes may therefore be viewed as secondary to the increased subjective perception of the complexity of postural tasks. Contrary to our expectations, stronger effects of age were seen in characteristics of rambling, not trembling. The commonly accepted hypothesis that older persons rely on vision more was not supported by this study: we found no significant interaction effects of age and vision on any of the sway characteristics. It was concluded that the reported higher reliance on vision in older persons may be task-specific. The results are compatible with the ideas that much of the age-related changes in postural sway emerge at the level of exploring the limits of stability and using the drift-and-act strategy. Our results suggest that the dominant view on rambling and trembling as reflecting supraspinal and peripheral mechanisms, respectively, may be too simplistic

Fuzzy urban traffic signal control - an overview
Andrej Brodnik, Alenka Malej, 2007, original scientific article

Abstract: Izboljšanje sistemov za upravljanje mestne prometne signalizacije je eden cenovno najučinkovitejših načinov za izboljšanje prometnega pretoka skozi mrežo semaforiziranih križišč. Pri razvoju novih sistemov se zadnja tri leta poleg tradicionalnih metod, ki temeljijo na uporabi modelov prometnega pretoka, čedalje več uporabljajo nove tehnologije, ki vključujejo uporabo umetne inteligence. Raziskave so pokazale učinkovitost metahevrističnih metod. Posebna mehka logika, tudi v kombinaciji z optimizacijskimi metodami, ponuja fleksibilnost, prilagodljivost, upravljanje pri netočnih ingormacijah in v konfliktnih situacijah. Naredili smo pregled raziskav s tega področja
