In this paper a new vector hysteresis model is constructed on the basis of a scalar hysteresis model. The advantages of the scalar model are its easy identification, past memory representation and numerical simplicity. The accommodation property of the model comes from the construction philosophy of the model. The feasibility of the extrapolation is defined by the turning points. The convenience of this model is its efficiency in reduction of the calculation time. The model parameters, the modification vector fields, derived from the permeability vector can be determined from the measured data points. The vector model can approximate the behavior of the vector hysteresis characteristics of ferromagnetic materials. In this paper the main question of the vector model, the definition of the initial values of components in the selected directions is solved.
Examining a human movement can provide a wealth of information about a patient’s medical condition. The examination process can be used to diagnose abnormal changes (lesions), ability development and monitor the rehabilitation process of people with reduced mobility. There are several approaches to monitor people, among other things with sensors and various imaging and processing devices. In this case a Kinect V2 sensor and a self-developed LabView based application was used, to examine the movement of the lower limbs. The ideal gait pattern was recorded in the RoboGait training machine and the measured data was used to identify the phases of the human gait. During the evaluation, the position of the skeleton model, the associated body joints and angles can be calculated. The pre-recorded ideal and natural gait cycle can be compared.
With the self-developed method the pre-recorded ideal and natural gait cycle can be compared and processed for further evaluation. The evaluated measurement data confirm that a reliable and mobile solution for gait analysis has been created.
The examination of the human gait cycle can be useful for physiotherapists for identifying and/or predicting body motion disorders and it provides important data about the patient's condition in many ways. In this paper, the progress of a special TheraSuit physiotherapy treatment of a child, who has reduced mobility due to cerebral palsy, has been investigated. Generally, this type of disorder is classified into strict levels and the effectiveness of the therapy is expressed by changing between distinct levels. On the other hand paper describes a new markerless self-developed movement analysis system, which is able to show the effectiveness of the treatment with quantitative parameters. These parameters are determined by statistical methods.

The paper suggests a design procedure for fuzzy cascade control. The expert knowledge based tuning procedure is supported by investigation the phase plane of the reference tracking. The plant is a one degree of freedom helicopter model with highly non-linear dynamics in a hardware-in-the-loop arrangement. Starting from a common fuzzy-PI controller in the outer loop and classic PI-controller in the inner loop, the presented tuning procedure enables to obtain fuzzy-adaptive parameter settings of the inner-loop and a heuristic modified rule base in the outer loop. The developed control strategy proves to be very successful: both the settling times and overshoots have become well regulated.
