This paper presents the modeling of a four rotor vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL) unmanned air vehicle known as the quad rotor aircraft. The paper presents a new model design method for the flight control of an autonomous quad rotor. The paper describes the controller architecture for the quad rotor as well. The dynamic model of the quad-rotor, which is… (More)
A robotic system is kinematically redundant when it possesses more degrees of freedom than those required to execute a given task. This paper reviews the well-known methods used to find the inverse kinematics of redundant manipulators. Because redundant manipulators have infinite solutions for their inverse kinematics, therefore the conventional method that… (More)
Automatic Meter Reading (AMR) is the remote collection of consumption data from customer's utility meters over telecommunications, radio, power line and other links. AMR provides water, electric and gas utility−service companies the opportunities to streamline metering, billing and collection activities, increase operational efficiency and improve customer… (More)
component of the system is that optimum flux level is attained fairly quicker. This resulted in faster rise time and the motor reaching its targeted speed much earlier.
A new compact planar notched ultrawideband (UWB) antenna is designed for wireless communication application. The proposed antenna has a compact size of 0.182λ × 0.228λ × 0.018λ where λ is the wavelength of the lowest operating frequency. The antenna is comprised of rectangular radiating patch, ground plane, and an arc-shaped strip in between radiating patch… (More)
This paper presents the development of a real-time brain computer interface (BCI) system based on the detection of steady-state visual evoked potential (SSVEP). The system includes a frequency-programmable visual stimulator, EEG-band amplifier and filter, 16-bit data acquisition card, and signal processing and classification algorithms. Three visual stimuli… (More)
