—A high spectral resolution lidar designed for operation in the NSF/NCAR Gulfstream V research aircraft is described. The operational principles of the instrument are described and examples of data are presented. Special design features required for aircraft operation are described.
This work presents a mixed-integer nonlinear mathematical programming (MINLP) model aiming at optimizing the sum of transition and inventory carrying costs in a multi-model synchronous assembly line. Different products are assembled in the same line in runs or campaigns, whose sequence and length should be optimally determined. As products show different… (More)
A model predictive controller for optimal braking of a road vehicle is proposed. Taking into account the additional information provided by a torque sensor located in the wheel, there is no need to use any longitudinal model of the vehicle. Instead, we detail a way to identify a tire/road characteristic. This on-line reconstruction is based on an estimation… (More)
