DEVELOPMENT OF A CARDAN MECHANISM FOR THE ASTEROID LANDER

It is of great significance for improving the landing stability and adjusting the attitude of equipment base by designing a cardan mechanism in the asteroid lander. In the paper, a cardan mechanism having cushion and attitude adjusting functions is designed for the asteroid lander. The cardan mechanism contains electromagnetic damping, belt transmission and cross-shaft, and it has merits of adjustable damping and bearing large overload. The attitude control system of the cardan mechanism is

A Hybrid MAC Mechanism for Multiple Load Intelligent Vehicle Transportation Network

The Media Access Control (MAC) mechanism of intelligent vehicle communication network meets a new challenge due to the multiple load data traffic and high speed mobility. This paper proposes a hybrid MAC mechanism which takes the advantages of both TDMA and CSMA mechanism. This hybrid mechanism is based on TDMA, while CSMA mechanism is added in time slots to improve the slot utilization in both high and low load networks. Through the simulation in NS2 we compare the results of the hybrid MAC

This compound inhibited the activities of acetylcholinesterase, amylase and cellulase in B. xylophilus and caused morphological alterations in the nematodes (Guo et al., 2017).

INVESTIGATION ON VELVET HAND ILLUSION USING PSYCHOPHYSICS AND FEM ANALYSIS

Optimal Waveform Design for Smart Jamming Focused on CA-CFAR

Focused on CA-CFAR anti-jamming mechanism, the method of optimal waveform design is studied to increase detection threshold for reducing true target detection, which can also improve the detection rate of false targets. Based on the relationship of signal to interference (ISR) and reference distance, the amplitude of jamming waveform is designed to follow Rayleigh distribution and finite interval random, and the interval is designed as random interval based on minimum interval.
