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

ABSTRACT

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)

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

ABSTRACT

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)

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

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

INTRODUCTION

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)

ABSTRACT

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)

ABSTRACT

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

Fixed-Wing UAV Attitude Estimation Using Single Antenna GPS Signal Strength Measurements (Electrical/Electronics Project)

ABSTRACT

This article considers a novel approach to using global positioning system (GPS) signal strength readings and estimated velocity vector for estimating the attitude of a small fixed-wing unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV). This approach has the benefit being able to Continue reading

Wireless Power Transfer for Autonomous Wearable Neurotransmitter Sensors (Electrical/Electronics Project)

ABSTRACT

In this paper, we report a power management system for autonomous and real-time monitoring of the neurotransmitter L-glutamate (L-Glu). A low-power, low-noise, and high-gain recording module was designed to acquire signal from an implantable flexible Continue reading

Introducing of Parasitic Elements to Short Back Fire Antenna for Radiation Pattern Improvement (Electrical/Electronics Project)

ABSTRACT

Short backfire antenna has an enclosed structure with two reflectors on top of each other conventionally short backfire antenna is characterized by gain of above 10 dB, making it attractive for handheld radio monitoring and other man-portable applications. Continue reading
