Embedded Virtual Machines for Robust Wireless Control and Actuation (Computer/Electrical Project)

ABSTRACT

Embedded wireless networks have largely focused on open-loop sensing and monitoring. To address actuation in closed-loop wireless control systems there is a strong need to re-think the communication architectures and Continue reading

Collision Mitigation System: Pedestrian Test Target (Mechanical Project)

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

Daimler Trucks North America is creating an advanced emergency braking system which uses radar sensors that detect pedestrians and automatically applies the brakes to bring the vehicle to a stop. To improve and validate their technology, they Continue reading
