Physics-based Modeling Techniques for Analysis and Design of Advanced Suspension Systems with Experimental Validation
(Virginia Tech, 2011-01-17)
This research undertakes the problem of vibration control of vehicular and structural systems using intelligent materials and controllable devices. Advanced modeling tools validated with experimental test data are developed ...
Optimal Vehicle Stability Control with Driver Input and Bounded Uncertainties
(Virginia Tech, 2011-02-04)
For decades vehicle control has been extensively studied to investigate and improve vehicle stability and performance. Such controllers are designed to improve driving safety while the driver is still in control of the ...
Fuzzy Analysis of Speech Metrics to Estimate Crew Alertness
(Virginia Tech, 2011-04-01)
A novel approach for estimating alertness levels from speech and tagging them with a reliability component has been developed. The Fatigue Quotient and Believability are both derived from the time series analysis of the ...
Generalized Predictive Control Parameter Adaptation Using a Fuzzy Logic Approach
(Virginia Tech, 2011-10-07)
A method to adapt the Generalized Predictive Control parameters to improve broadband disturbance rejection was developed and tested. The effect of the parameters on disturbance rejection has previously been poorly understood ...
