In this thesis, Global Positioning System (GPS) and radar measurements are utilized in a multi-sensor architecture to achieve a confident relative positioning solution between two vehicles. A GPS solution providing a ...

Radial Deblurring with FFTs 

Webster, Christopher (2007-08-15)
Radial blurring (sometimes called zoom blurring) of an image occurs when a camera acquires an image while traveling at a high rate of speed towards an object. Removing this blur is a challenging problem because it is a ...

Radiated Emissions Extrapolation Issues 

Martin, Joshua (2010-03-24)
In this thesis, the complicated problem of extrapolating radiated emissions from one range to another is tackled. A model employing a Method of Moments (MoM) formulation is presented to compare alongside measurements which ...

Radiation Hard Thin Film Transistors and Logic Circuits Based on ZnO and Related Materials 

Wang, Shiqiang (2017-11-30)
Thin film and thin film transistors (TFTs) and logic circuits based on zinc oxide (ZnO) and related materials, such as zinc tin oxide (ZTO), are designed, fabricated and characterized in this Ph.D. dissertation. ZnO as ...

Radiation Hardness Study of AlGaN/GaN High Electron Mobility Transistors (HEMTs) 

Khanal, Min (2019-04-29)
Gallium nitride (GaN) has unique inherent properties such as ionic-covalent bond, large direct bandgap, excellent thermal stability, high threshold displacement energy and higher break-down field. Also, the relatively low ...

Radiative emissivity of metals and oxidized metals at high temperature 

Teodorescu, George (2007-08-15)
Radiative emissivities of metals at high temperatures influence the energy balance and remote sensing in a wide range of manufacturing processes as well as research and development activities and thereby determine performance ...

Radio Frequency Heating for Dehydration and Pest Control of In-Shell Peanuts 

Harraz, Hatem (2007-05-15)
For many decades conventional wagon drying (curing) systems or batch/continuous flow drying systems have been used for peanut dehydration. Both are time and energy consuming. Radio Frequency (RF) dielectric heating has ...

Radio Frequency Integrated Circuits for Wireless and Wireline Communications 

Kakani, Vasanth (2007-12-15)
This dissertation presents my studies in design of high frequency circuits for wireless and wireline communication systems. As a part of this effort a seven tap transversal filter has been designed using broadband amplifiers. ...

Radio Frequency Module on Small Gasoline Engine Application 

Huang, Tian (2013-04-04)
Radio frequency communications applications are typically more applied than plain research in many aspects. A new application for radio frequency communications has been investigated for controlling the small gasoline ...

Radio Frequency Sensing Systems for Artificial Intelligence of Things 

Yang, Chao (2022-05-02)
With the rapid development of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things (IoT) has evolved into artificial intelligence (AIoT). The development of an effective and low-cost human health detection system has attracted ...

Radish Cover Crop Growth and Compaction Alleviation Potential in Southeastern Coastal Plain Soils 

Cofer, Trevor (2019-11-19)
Soil compaction in the form of hardpans often restricts cash crop root growth in the southeastern U.S., reducing plant vigor and yield potential for crops with deep taproots such as cotton (Gossypium hirsutum). Planting ...

Rainbow Cycle Forbidding Edge Colorings 

Owens, Andrew (2019-07-18)
It is well known that K_n can be edge colored using n-1 colors in order to avoid rainbow cycles; moreover, this is the maximum number of colors possible. We call such an edge coloring a JL-coloring. In previous work it has ...

Rainbow Trees in Edge-Colored Complete Graphs and Block Decompositions of Almost Complete Graphs 

Perry, Katherine (2017-04-26)
This dissertation focuses on two problems, the first involving the existence of many edge-disjoint rainbow spanning trees in edge-colored complete graphs, and the second, creating a balanced sampling plan for a two-dimensional ...
