1. Identifying the Influential Socio Economic Factors on the Thought of Having Family Planning Among Youth in Rural (With Reference from Porawagama Gn Division)
Lankeshwara, P, Wijesekara, N. M.
Family planning is simply the decision-making process by couples, together or individually, on the number of children that they would like to have in their lifetime, and the age gap between children. This means that both halves of a couple have equal rights to decide on their future fertility. The main objective of the study was to identify the influential socio economic factors on the thought of having family planning among youth in a rural area. 100 of 18 - 40 age grouped in Porawagama GN divisional area were chosen as the sample through the purposive sampling technique, using a structured questionnaire. The dependent variable is thus the thought of having family planning and the independent variables have considered under three categories as economic, socio demographic and family planning related factors to reveal the significantly influential factors. Results of the chi square analysis revealed that, job sector (husband and wife), monthly income, age group, education level, age at marriage, number of actual birth, ability to leave from the job, status of house, free time (in hours), awareness about (husband‟s), awareness about methods and from where obtained as significantly influential for the thought of having family planning among youth in rural.

The functionality of existing and new industrial robots and their application in various manufacturing operations can be expanded by replacing the old control system with "rigid" logic by a modern one, based on microcontrollers, as well as adding to the manipulation system other manufacturing capabilities: measuring the weight and temperature of the manipulated object, increasing the accuracy of positioning and rigidity of the manipulation system by structural methods, expansion of mobility on the principle of "robustness" of the robot.
The purpose of the study was to find a way and develop means of expanding the functionality of existing and new industrial robots and their application in various manufacturing operations while minimizing economic costs and without large-scale reconstruction of basic models.
Methods of research. The functional analysis of the three-stage industrial robot МП-9С, which is widely used in industry, is applied. At the same time, the necessary production functions that robot MP-9C should have are investigated. Functional flexibility and the possibility of transforming new proposed schemes of robots is justified.
Findings. There have been developed and experimentally investigated the efficiency and functionality of equipping the gripper of МП-9С robot with tactile sensors to record the presence of load in the gripper and measure its weight. The operation of the thermocouple in order to measure the temperature of the load in the gripper was also experimentally studied. The algorithm and scheme for transmitting information from additional sensors to the robot control system have been developed and tested, which has significantly expanded its operational functions.
Scientific novelty. The vast majority of industrial robots are designed to handle loads in a three-dimensional working space, i.e. designed to perform only transporting and unloading operations, which is functionally insufficient for modern production processes. Providing industrial robots with additional functions, as well manufacturing new robots with extensive functions beyond simple movement is a timely scientific requirement for modern industries.
Practical value. Industrial robots with the help of additional functions can independently perform an extended set of works with a limited range of industrial equipment.
