Big News! I am thrilled to share some fantastic news with all of you! Our research article, "Teaching Motion Control in Mechatronics Education Using an Open Framework Based on the Elevator Model," authored by Filippo Sanfilippo, Martin Økter, Tine Eie, and Morten Ottestad, and published in Machines 10(10) in 2022, has been nominated for the prestigious "Machines 2022 Best Paper Award"
In this paper, we explored the exciting field of Mechatronics Education, specifically focusing on motion control. The Elevator Model served as an excellent platform for students and educators to understand complex mechatronics concepts through practical applications. The openness of the framework encourages collaboration and exploration, enabling a deeper comprehension of motion control and its real-world implications.
This nomination for the award is even more rewarding as two of my talented students, Martin Økter and Tine Eie, were involved in this work.
I finally want to acknowledge the wider community's support and encouragement for this work.

Title: "Hybrid deep learning model for efficient state of charge estimation of Li-ion batteries in electric vehicles"

Abstract: State of charge (SoC) estimation is critical for the safe and efficient operation of electric vehicles (EVs). This work proposes a hybrid multi-layer deep neural network (HMDNN)-based approach for SoC estimation in EVs. This HMDNN uses Mountain Gazelle Optimizer (MGO) as a training algorithm for the deep neural network. Our method leverages the intrinsic relationship between the SoC and the voltage/current measurements of the EV battery to accurately estimate the SoC in real time. We evaluate our approach on a large dataset of real-world EV charging data and demonstrate its effectiveness in comparison to traditional SoC estimation methods. Four diverse Li-ion battery datasets of electric vehicles are employed which are the dynamic stress test (DST), Beijing dynamic stress test (BJDST), federal urban driving schedule (FUDS), and highway driving schedule (US06) with different temperatures of 0oC,25oC,45oC. The comparison is made with Mayfly Optimization Algorithm based DNN, Particle Swarm Optimization based DNN and Back-Propagation based DNN. The evaluation indices used are normalized mean square error (NMSE), root mean square error (RMSE), mean absolute error (MAE), and relative error (RE). The proposed algorithm achieves 0.1% NMSE and 0.3% RMSE on average on all datasets, which validates the effective performance of the proposed model. The results show that the proposed neural network-based approach can achieve higher accuracy and faster convergence than existing methods. This can enable more efficient EV operation and improved battery life.
