Socially Attentive Autonomous Vehicles

The computational cost of determining the action sequence in high traffic areas such as changing lanes on a highway or merging into lanes can be computationally costly. Rather than computing the Nash Equilibrium on all the cars in the environment, suppose the Nash Equilibrium was computed pairwise rather than on the whole environment. This would […]

Learning Deep Neural Interaction Policy for ExoSkeleton Control

The purpose of this research is to develop a deep-learning-based approach to control a custom-built hip exoskeleton. A key component is to leverage learning-based techniques to adapt across different walking behaviors among multiple users. At the core, learning from demonstration (LfD) is used to extract the inherent motion pattern from the user demonstrations during training.  […]

Kinetics of Dynamic Damage Growth in Metals from Characterization and Simulations of Shock Loading Experiments

Understanding the mechanisms of damage evolution (spall) in metallic materials undergoing shock loading is key to predicting the performance of armor systems. Simulations of polyhedral voids will be performed using finite element models to investigate material and geometric effects on the growth behavior of these voids. Results will be compared to geometric and crystal orientation […]

Particle Entrainment in Convection Scenarios

In this study, dust entrainment and aerosol dynamics within the formation of dust devils are investigated numerically. Particles lying on the boundary are resolved in a periodic Rayleigh-Benard convection to investigate details of entrainment in scenarios analogous to the atmosphere. The details provided by the high-fidelity platform are powerful tools develop models of dust emission […]

Multiple-channel Signal Detection in the Presence of Phase Distortion

Sensor networks are important in security and environmental remote sensing applications, including remote detection of air, space, surface, or underwater vehicles and natural resource deposits. This research has established that the performance of multi-channel signal detectors is invariant across several classes of signals, including Gaussian and digitally modulated signals in noise. It is also quantifying […]

Investigation into regeneration methods of desiccants for vacuum desiccant cooling

Personal cooling has many medical, defense, industrial, and recreational uses. Many methods being used are heavy, cumbersome, and uncomfortable. Vacuum desiccant cooling has the potential for being a lightweight, energy-efficient, and highly controllable cooling technology, but is limited by the desiccant being saturated with water over time. The purpose of this research is to study […]

Making Portable and Less Expensive LED Based Spectrometer for Monitoring the Quality of Fruits and Water Content

The fruit and vegetable sector plays a significant role in farm income enhancement, and sustainable agriculture globally. Unfortunately, this sector usually goes through post-harvest losses. Visual inspection of the fruits and vegetables using the human eyes has been the usual method of inspection of fruitful on a commercial scale. However, this method for fruit quality […]
