Supposing the vehicle forward speed is a constant, it is apparent from the figures that the sideslip angle gain arose with the increasing of wheels steering scale factor. Moreover, the yaw rate gain decreases with the increasing of scale factor.
The fuzzy subsets of input scale factor are {B, M, S, VS}.
Since the quantization is operated based on the scale factor band, it needs to convert the masking threshold from frequency band to scale factor band.
The coefficients [S.sub.X], [S.sub.Y], and [S.sub.Z] and [O.sub.X], [O.sub.Y], and [O.sub.Z] represent scale factor error, and bias, respectively.
As seen in Figure 7(b), it is seen that a scale factor of [tau] = 1 was sufficient enough to provide the necessary contrast to identify the rotor pivot points with higher MSE values at the rotor pivot point than that in the periphery.
For the application of airborne navigation, this paper analyzes the influence of scale factor error and misalignment error on the accuracy of integrated navigation.
As will be seen next, the scale factor of the odometer is considered in the integration filter, which directly relates to the scale factor of the VO solution.
More precisely, with respect to the microgeometry, we notice that the scale factor [S.sub.c] plays a significant role because a factor of 2 (or 1/2) is sufficient to completely modify the Stribeck curve.
The average scale factor R and volumetric scale factor V for the model are, respectively, R = [([b.sub.1][b.sub.2][b.sub.3]).sup.1/3] and V = [R.sup.3] = [b.sub.1][b.sub.2][b.sub.3].
Moreover, the best candidates for quantum solutions are those that have a damping behavior with respect to the scale factor, since only such wave functions allow for good classical solutions when using a Wentzel-Kramers-Brillouin (WKB) approximation for any scenario in the evolution of our universe [30, 31].
The severity of patients' psychotic symptoms were reflected by positive symptom factor scores, negative symptom factor scores, general psychopathological scale factor scores and the total scores of PANSS.
