A Guidance Algorithm for Unmanned Surface Vehicle Exhibiting Sternward Motion
(Virginia Tech, 2013-11-11)
We propose a new dynamically feasible trajectory generation algorithm that incorporates sternward motion for unmanned surface vehicles. This work is motivated by riverine applications where the operating environment is ...
Co-channel interference rejection using a model-based demodulator
(Virginia Tech, 1995)
Low Power IC Design with Regulated Output Voltage and Maximum Power Point Tracking for Body Heat Energy Harvesting
(Virginia Tech, 2016-07-14)
As wearable technology and wireless sensor nodes become more and more ubiquitous, the batteries required to power them have become more and more unappealing as they limit lifetime and scalability. Energy harvesting from ...
Nonlinear analysis of eddy-current couplings in feedback control systems
(Virginia Polytechnic Institute, 1966)
Service-Oriented Architecture based Cloud Computing Framework For Renewable Energy Forecasting
(Virginia Tech, 2014-03-10)
Forecasting has its application in various domains as the decision-makers are provided with a more predictable and reliable estimate of events that are yet to occur. Typically, a user would invest in licensed software or ...
Ionospheric Simulator (IonSim) : Simulating Ionospheric conditions in a vacuum chamber
(Virginia Tech, 2013-10-29)
Understanding and improving ionospheric models is important for both military and civilian purposes. This understanding improves prediction of radio propagation used for communication and GPS navigation. Various space-borne ...
Using Decoys as a Resiliency Mechanism in Spectrally Harsh DSA Environments
(Virginia Tech, 2014-03-07)
As wireless communication mediums develop and Dynamic Spectrum Access (DSA) is implemented as a means to increase capacity on a limited spectrum, the threat of reactive interference becomes real. The motivation for this ...
Electrical and Thermal Characterizations of IGBT Module with Pressure-Free Large-Area Sintered Joints
(Virginia Tech, 2013-10-17)
Silver sintering technology has received considerable attention in recent years because it has the potential to be a suitable interconnection material for high-temperature power electronic packaging, such as high melting ...
Blind Comprehension of Waveforms through Statistical Observations
This paper proposes a cumulant based classification means to identify waveforms for a blind receiver in the presence of time varying channels, which is built from the work done on cumulants in static channels currently in ...
Uniform Field Distribution Using Distributed Magnetic Structure
(Virginia Tech, 2014-01-13)
Energy distribution in a conventional magnetic component is generally not at a designer's disposal. In a conventional toroidal inductor, the energy density is inversely proportional to the square of the radius. Thus, a ...
