This paper describes the details of a Quadrotor miniature unmanned aerial system capable of autonomously exploring cluttered indoor areas without relying on any external navigational aids such as GPS. A streamlined Simultaneous Localization and Mapping (SLAM) algorithm is implemented onboard the vehicle to fuse information from a scanning laser range(More)
This paper describes the design and flight test of a completely self-contained autonomous indoor Miniature Unmanned Aerial System (M-UAS). Guidance, navigation, and control algorithms are presented, enabling the M-UAS to autonomously explore cluttered indoor areas without relying on any off-board computation or external navigation aids such as GPS.

Under this specialization, the departments of obstetrics and gynecology in two city hospitals were combined as one medical center, whilst one(More)
In this paper, we propose a decoupled substation price model with separate charges for base energy production, up/down reserve usages and reserve usage variations. Using the decou-pled price scheme, the flexible loads in the distribution system are scheduled to closely follow variations in renewable generation in order to mitigate demand fluctuations in(More)
