Collaborative Architectures for Relative Position Estimation of Ground Vehicles with UWB Ranging and Vehicle Dynamic Models
The relative position to neighboring vehicles is critical to ongoing autonomy efforts including collision avoidance and path planning; therefore, it should not be fully dependent on an external reference such as GPS. ...
Liquid Jet Impingement on Mesoscale Modified Surfaces for Power Electronics Cooling
(2023-10-25) ETD File Embargoed
In each vehicular generation, active safety and comfort features are added and enhanced, increasing the power draw required to operate every feature. As a result, heat generation in the power electronics is increasing, ...
Evaluation of a Pneumatic Cylinder for Ankle Exoskeleton Actuation
(2023-11-28) ETD File Embargoed
Ankle exoskeletons are used to reduce the effort of walking. This research aims to design and test an actuator that takes advantage of new joint angle prediction methods. First, a Maxon EC motor was tested on an exoskeleton ...
Mechanical Vibration Effects on Enhanced Melting of Phase Change Materials within Latent Heat Thermal Energy Storage Devices Under Different Container Orientations
Phase change materials (PCM) are playing a bigger role in our daily life, from cooling of electric vehicle batteries to spacecrafts in the outer space. Research on PCM melting behavior and system performance has generally ...
