Embedded Implementation of VHR Satellite Image Segmentation (Electrical/Electronics Project)


Processing and analysis of Very High Resolution (VHR) satellite images provide a mass of crucial information, which can be used for urban planning, security issues or environmental monitoring. However, they are computationally expensive Continue reading

A Linked List-based Algorithm for Blob Detection on Embedded Vision-based Sensors (Electrical/Electronics Project)


Blob detection is a common task in vision-based applications. Most existing algorithms are aimed at execution on general purpose computers; while very few can be adapted to the computing restrictions present in embedded platforms. This paper focuses Continue reading

Data Acquisition for Flight Tests using Handheld GPS and Electronic Flight Instrument System (Electrical/Electronics Project)


This paper addresses the data acquisition system designed in order to gather flight test data for two different aircraft for the AERO flight test class at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo. It summarizes the system, data acquisition devices, methods used, data comparison Continue reading

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


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

Software Tools and Simulators in the Education of Engineering of Telecommunications (Electronics Project)


The use of software tools and simulators in the education field has a growing interest in most of universities and educational procedures. Nowadays, in university education new technologies are used to improve and complement the theoretical concepts Continue reading

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


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

An Overview of Binary Arithmetic Architectures & Their Implementation in DSP Systems (Electrical/Electronics Project)


Many branches of the electrical engineering industry involve applications that use digital signal processing. Almost any type of signal that comes in analog form, such as sound, video, and radio or microwaves, must use digital signal processing for Continue reading

Workplace Posture Assessment and Biofeedback With Kinect (Electrical/Electronics Project)


With the prevalence of computing, many workers today are confined to desk within an office. By sitting in these positions for long periods of time, workers are prone to develop one of many musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs), such as carpal tunnel syndrome. Continue reading

Colorful Textile Antennas Integrated into Embroidered Logos (Electrical/Electronics Project)


We present a new methodology to create colorful textile antennas that can be embroidered within logos or other a esthetic shapes. Conductive threads (e-threads) have already been used in former embroidery unicolor approaches as attributed to Continue reading
