—A " complete " fault diagnostic system is developed for automated vehicles operating as a platoon on an automated highway system. The diagnostic system is designed to monitor the complete set of sensors and actuators used by the lateral and longitudinal controllers of the vehicle, including radar sensors, magnetometers and inter-vehicle communication(More)
The cardiac atria are known to play a role in blood volume homeostasis, secreting a peptide that induces a potent natriuresis and diuresis. This peptide is atrial natriuretic factor (ANF), and its primary site of storage is within atria-specific granules found in atrial cardiocytes. Since salt loading results in an increase in circulating levels of ANF, our(More)

—Remote sensing missions for Earth Science contribute greatly to the understanding of the dynamics of our planet. Conventional approaches however, impede the scientific community's ability to (1) generate and refine models of complex phenomena, such as, extended weather forecasting , (2) detect and rapidly respond to critical transient events (e.g.,(More)

This paper presents the conception, design, implementation and testing of innovative software architectures and software development processes for rapid prototyping of automated transit buses. Our work is motivated by demonstrations of automated transit bus technology in the context of Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) systems. Mission handling and safety issues are(More)
Many future earth and space science missions, such as the Magnetospheric Multiscale Mission and Terrestrial Planet Finder, have been proposed that require a high level of coordination between multiple heterogeneous sensors and spacecraft to achieve their mission objectives. On-board autonomy and distributed processing are additional key technologies that(More)
