The course concentrates on humans and their needs for light. With the help of selected chapters it shows the effects of light on humans and how we can use these effects in connection with lighting and modern light sources to improve our lives. Today lighting should not only enable our vision but should also stimulate our entire organism. Beside that lighting should be energy-efficient and have minimal negative impacts on our environment.
System analysis classification, algorithm division, signal analysis (excitation and disturbance signals), the area of use. Least squares method, regression method, bias and consistency of estimates. Dynamical model parameter estimation, model parameterisation, extended least squares method, instrumental variables method, recursive versions of least squares, the adaptation for time varying systems – weighted least squares and exponential forgetting, the influence of unknown steady states, numerical problems. Identification of non-parametric models.
The objective of the course Biomechanics is to familiarize students with fundamental laws of mechanics and to present how these can be applied to understanding and analyzing the living systems. In the perspectives of transferring solutions from the nature the knowledge on biomechanics is fundamental in development of robotic systems, artificial organs, biomaterials, rehabilitation products, simulation models, and intelligent devices for exercise in rehabilitation and sport.
