Using Monocular Vision and Image Correlation to Accomplish Autonomous Localization (Electrical/Electronics Project)

ABSTRACT

For autonomous navigation, robots and vehicles must have accurate estimates of their current state (i.e. location and orientation) within an inertial coordinate frame. If a map is given a priori, the process of determining this state is known as localization. Continue reading

Analysis of the Impact of Contagion Flow on Firm Value and Application to High Yield Bond Portfolio Optimization (Electronics Project)

ABSTRACT

Portfolios of financial instruments are designed to increase returns and manage risk. In high-risk investment strategies, central measures of risk must be complemented with controls on tail measures of risk. An unanticipated event that impacts Continue reading
