This paper describes a design competition called Systems Ball that has been successfully used in the Systems Engineering design course sequence at the United States Naval Academy. In the Systems Ball competition, student teams build remotely operated vehicles that partake in a combative version of basketball. Systems Ball has been found to be an effective(More)
Active control of noise has been an emerging technology for the past two decades. Active noise control (ANC) is an attractive means to achieve large amounts of noise reduction in a small package, particularly at low frequencies, where passive noise control may be impractical. While the concept of ANC has long been established, the technological means for(More)
In this paper we discuss a locally-generated daughter-board extension to the popular SHARC DSP evaluation module (EVM). The board improves the performance of this inexpensive hardware in many applications that involve feedback control. We discuss the use of this hardware in a simple servo-motor control experiment that demonstrates many of the fundamentals(More)
