Abstract:

THE PURPOSE OF THIS PROPOSAL IS TO DEMONSTRATE THE FEASIBILITY IN DEVELOPING A BI-DIRECTIONAL (2 WAY) CADD TRANSLATOR BETWEEN DSREDS SYSTEMS (2D RASTER) AND THE INTERGRAPH CADEM SYSTEM. THE DEVELOPMENT OF SUCH A TRANSLATOR WILL GREATLY REDUCE THE MANPOWER WASTE AND DUPLICATION OF EFFORT THAT ARE INHERIT IN THE CURRENT METHODOLOGY USED. DUE TO PIONEER TECHNOLOGY EXTENSIVE EXPERIENCE WITH THE INTERGRAPH CADD (COMPUTER AIDED DESIGN AND DRAFTING) SYSTEM AND DIRECT TRANSLATORS, OUR ULTIMATE GOAL WOULD BE THE DEVELOPMENT OF A NO HASSLE TRANSLATOR FOR DAILY USE. TO ACCOMPLISH THIS GOAL OF TRANSLATION OF 2D RASTER TO 3D VECTOR WE WOULD REQUIRE ACCESS TO THE LATEST FILE SPECIFICATION OF BOTH THE DSREDS AND INTEGRAPH SYSTEMS. TO HANDLE THE MULTITUDE OF POTENTIAL CONFLICTS WITHIN THE TRANSLATOR WE WOULD USE THE TECHNIQUE OF FUZZY LOGIC THAT HAS MADE THE JAPANESE CONSUMER PRODUCTS SO VERSATILE IN OPERATION. THE APPLICATION OF FUZZY LOGIC WITHIN A TRANSLATOR HAS MANY UNIQUE ADVANTAGES. FUZZY LOGIC, THE ABILITY FOR A COMPUTER, OR SOFTWARE, TO DISTINGUISH BETWEEN GRAY AREAS OF DECISIONS ALLOWS FOR APPLICATION OF ARTIFICAL INTELLIGENCE TO BE APPLIED TO REAL WORLD PROBLEMS. A CLASSIC EXAMPLE OF THIS IS THE CURRENT RELEASE IN JAPAN OF PERSONAL COMPUTERS (PCS) THAT CAN READ HANDWRITING IN EITHER ENGLISH, OR JAPANESE KANJI CHARACTERS. AT THIS EXAMPLE ILLUSTRATES, RASTER FILES TRANSLATION HAS THE SAME PROBLEMS IN DETERMINING ELEMENT TYPES AS WOULD A COMPUTER TRYING TO READ SOMEONE' HANDWRITING. WITH THE APPLICATION OF FUZZY LOGIC WE WILL BE ABLE TO MAKE A MUCH MORE INTELLIGENT AND HASSLE FREE TRANSLATOR.
