Optical Flow Algorithm for Velocity Estimation of Ground Vehicles: A Feasibility Study

Savan Chhaniyara/ Pished Bunnun/ Lakmal D. Seneviratne/ Kaspar Althoefer

This paper presents a novel velocity estimation method for all terrain ground vehicles. The technique is based on a camera that scans the ground and estimates the velocity by using an optical flow algorithm. The method is tested and validated for different types of terrains such as fine sand, coarse sand, gravel as well as a mixture of coarse sand and gravel. Measured velocities from precise encoders are compared with the velocities predicted by the optical flow algorithm, showing promising pote(..)

SENSOR TECHNOLOGY AT SUBMILLIMETER WAVELENGTHS FOR SPACE APPLICATIONS

Goutam Chattopadhyay

Our universe is most luminous at far-infrared and submillimeter wavelengths (100 GHz – 10 THz) after the Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB) radiation. This region of the electromagnetic spectrum provides critical tracers for the study of a wide range of astrophysical and planetary phenomena. This spectral range contains information on the origin of the planets, stars, galaxies, and clusters; the geometry and matter/energy content of the Universe, atmospheric constituents and dynamics of the plane(..)

Iterative Feedback Tuning (IFT) of Head Positioning Servomechanism in Hard Disk Drive

A. Al Mamun/ K.C. Tan/ W.E. Wong

Actuators used in hard disk drives (HDD) are produced en mass and therefore their dynamic properties vary within a given tolerance bound. A nominal model representing the batch of actuators is used to design the head positioning servomechanism. Equal performance can not be expected for all actuators when such controller is used. Disk drive servomechanism is expected to provide performance with increasingly tighter tolerance as the demand for higher storage capacity continues. Moreover, physical (..)

Human-Based Sensing Sensor Systems to Complement Human Perception

Peter Wide

The approach of human-based sensing is based on the assumption that sensor systems for individual use have optimal performance if coherent with the human perception system. The benefits of complementing the human sensing with sensor systems that strengthen the information and make the human able to perform more adequate and optimized decisions based on the sensor information, will improve the human capability. The arguments for designing sensor systems that increase the human ability in order to(..)

Adaptive Security Modules in Incrementally Deployed Sensor Networks

Meng-Yen Hsieh/ Yueh-Min Huang

Distributed wireless sensor networks often suffer problems on detecting malicious nodes, which always bring destructive threats. Thus, sensor networks have to supply authentication services for sensor identity and data communication. As matter of fact, intrusion detection and prevention schemes are always integrated in sensor security appliances so that they can enhance network security by discovering malicious or compromised nodes. This paper provides adaptive security modules to improve secure(..)

Advanced methods of data processing in magnetic anomaly detection (MAD) systems are investigated. Raw signals of MAD based on component magnetic sensors are transformed into energy signals in the space of specially constructed orthonormalized functions. This procedure provides a considerable improvement of the SNR thus enabling reliable target detection. Estimation of the target parameters is implemented with the help of Genetic Algorithm. Numerous computer simulations show good algorithm conver(..)

DETECTION OF VOLATILE ORGANIC COMPOUNDS BASED ON OPTICAL FIBRE USING NANOSTRUCTURED FILMS

Cesar Elosua/ Ignacio R. Matias/ Candido Bariain/ Francisco J. Arregui

An optical fibre sensor for detection of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) has been implemented. This device is based on a vapochromic material presented in the form of bright red powders, which suffers reversible changes in its optical properties when exposed to some organic vapours. The sensor head consists of a nano interferometer doped with the vapochromic material, built onto a cleaved ended multimode optical fibre by using the Layer by Layer Electrostatic Self Assembly Method (LbL).

ON BOARD EXHAUST EMISSION MONITORING OF ROAD VEHICLES - A HIGH TECH SOLUTION TO POLLUTION FROM TRAFFIC?

E. Lewis/ G. Dooly/ E. Hawe/ C. Fitzpatrick/ P. Chambers/ W.Z. Zhao/ T. Sun/ K.T.V. Grattan/ W.B. Lyons/ J. Lucas/ M. Degner/ H. Ewald/ S Lochmann/ G. Bramann/ C. Wei/ D. Hitchen/ E. Merlone-Borla

A significant proportion of the atmospheric pollution that exists particularly in urban areas arises from road vehicles and primarily cars. The European Commission (EC) have introduced a series of regulations, the so called EURO Emission directives from Euro I in 1991 to the present day Euro IV. This legislation and similar ones in other global regions have helped to greatly reduce emission levels from road transport. However, a massive increase in the number of cars on the road have meant that (..)

A Design of Gain-scheduled Congestion Controllers using State Predictive Observers

Takehito Azuma/ Masashi Uchida

In this paper, a design problem of congestion controllers is discussed for TCP/AQM(Transmission Control Protocol/Active Queue Management) networks. The proposed method consists of two control techniques. First one is based on a gain-scheduling technique considering nonlinearities of TCP/AQM networks. But the designed congestion controller is a state feedback controller and it is impossible to embed the congestion controller in real computer networks. To avoid this problem, second one is based on(..)

SCALING ISSUES IN LARGE NETWORKS OF SMALL SENSORS: ENERGY AND COMMUNICATION MANAGEMENT

Mel Siegel

We discuss five scaling-related issues in robotics and robotic systems. They are unified by an understanding of the fundamental engineering constraints imposed by the essentially fixed fundamental strength of materials and the essentially fixed practical density at which energy can be stored. These constraints have profound effects on when big bodies are in danger of collapsing under their own weight and when small bodies are in danger of running out of fuel. The section on strength provides a r(..)
