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

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

Stereo Pi: Portable Digital Stereo Camera (Electronics Project)

ABSTRACT

Stereoscopy, a technique for creating the illusion of depth, has existed as early as the 1950s. With the ubiquity of smartphones, digital camera technologies has greatly advanced over the past decade. Although stereo cameras have existed for Continue reading
