Free-space optical (FSO) communication has become a cost-effective method to provide high data rates. However, the turbulence-induced fading limits its application to short-range applications. To address this, we propose a multiuser diversity (MD) FSO scheme in which the Nth best user is selected and the channel fluctuations can be effectively exploited to produce a selection diversity gain. More specifically, we first present the statistics analysis for the considered system over both weak and strong atmospheric turbulence channels. Based on these statistics, the outage probability, bit-error rate performance, average capacity, diversity order, and coverage are analyzed. Results show that the diversity order for the gamma-gamma fading is N min {α, β}/2, where N is the number of users, and α and β are the channel fading parameters related to the effective atmospheric conditions of the link. © 2009-2012 IEEE.

Biofilm formation on medical implants and subsequent infections are a global problem. A great deal of effort has focused on developing chemical contrasts based on micro- and nanopatterning for studying and controlling cells and bacteria at surfaces. It has been known that micro- and nanopatterns on surfaces can influence biomolecule adsorption, and subsequent cell and bacterial adhesion. However, less focus has been on precisely controlling patterns to study the initial bacterial attachment mechanisms and subsequently how the patterning influences the role played by biomolecular adsorption on biofilm formation. In this work, the authors have used colloidal self-assembly in a confined area to pattern surfaces with colloidal crystals and used them as masks during allylamine plasma polymer (AAMpp) deposition to generate highly ordered patterns from the microto the nanoscale. Polyethylene glycol (PEG)-aldehyde was grafted to the plasma regions via "cloud point" grafting to prevent the attachment of bacteria on the plasma patterned surface regions, thereby controlling the adhesive sites by choice of the colloidal crystal morphology. Pseudomonas aeruginosa was chosen to study the bacterial interactions with these chemically patterned surfaces. Scanning electron microscope, x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS), atomic force microscopy, and epifluorescence micros­copy were used for pattern characterization, surface chemical analysis, and imaging of attached bacteria. The AAMpp influenced bacterial attachment because of the amine groups displaying a positive charge. XPS results confirm the successful grafting of PEG on the AAMpp surfaces. The results showed that PEG patterns can be used as a surface for bacterial patterning including investigating the role of biomolecular patterning on bacterial attachment. These types of patterns are easy to fabricate and could be useful in further applications in biomedical research. © 2015 American Vacuum Society.

Robots for disaster response require a multi-disciplinary engineering approach in order to solve the constraints and requirements of operating within a disaster environment for one or multiple missions. At Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, the senior capstone design course for the Department of Electrical, Computer, Software, and Systems Engineering brings together a multi-disciplinary team of students to solve complex engineering problems as part of their capstone senior design experience. During the 2009-2010 and 2011-2012 academic years, students were challenged to develop robotic systems for human-robot teaming for the task of post-disaster search-and-rescue. This paper discusses how disaster robotics was used to support project-based learning for these capstone design experience. © 2012 by the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, Inc.

Brain waves are studied, investigated from the last century to detect the psycho-physiological problems, like Epilepsy, Alzheimer, spinal cord injuries and others. But the stress is the common thing which can be recognize with brainwave using EEG (Electroencephalogram) technique, simply by placing the Electrodes on scalp. The musical track is listening to destress a person, this is observed with different Brain waves. The raw EEG signal categorized depending upon frequency ranges from 0.5Hz to 30Hz. After applying the therapy Brainwave changes from one wave to other this is performed and analyzes with experimental setup. The objective of this paper is to recognize the stress with non-invasive technique and controlling it with musical tracks results shows the feasibility in developing system. © 2016 IEEE.

Transformer is an indispensable component of power system which performs many functions such as voltage transformation, electrical isolation, noise decoupling and power quality improvement. However, at low frequencies (60/50 Hz), it is a bulky and expensive component. In this paper, the concept of electronic transformers is further extended and explored for its suitability in power systems. Though from the perspective of input/output behavior, the electronic transformer and the conventional transformer are identical but the PET has reduced size, losses, higher efficiency, improved voltage regulation and reduced voltage sag in comparison to those of conventional transformer. In the proposed design, three phase full wave converter and inverter are incorporated in both primary and secondary sides of the high frequency transformer. The PWM (pulse width modulation) is used for switching which manages synchronism between input and output and suppresses harmonics. The matrix converter is used in the proposed design which uses SVPWM (space vector pulse width modulation) for multiple switching. The SVPWM ensures maximum voltage transfer without harmonics in the output. The design and analysis of the proposed model of PET is done by using MATLAB-SIMULINK. It can be inferred from the steady state analysis of the simulation results that the PET has better voltage regulation than that of the conventional transformer. © 2015 IEEE.

A biosensor which is used for determining the concentration of substances and other parameters of biological interest is an integral part of the public health systems. Micromachined sensors based on radio frequency-microelectromechanical systems are an emerging field of study for biosensing applications. In this work, we propose a novel detection method for pathogenic bacteria using a coplanar waveguide (CPW) as well as distributed microelectromechanical systems transmission line (DMTL). Escherichia coli has been chosen for the study due to the widespread food poisoning outbreaks caused by its infective strains. But, the model can be easily extended to other pathogenic bacteria as well. The E. coli bacterium was modeled as a three-shell structure based on the electrical properties of the E. coli cell. An initial study was done using a CPW. The scattering parameters and voltage standing wave ratio were analyzed and found to vary as the number of bacteria positioned on the CPW increased. Reflection parameters were found to have more deviation than the transmission parameters. DMTL was designed by introducing periodic structures in CPW, to allow increased interaction between the electromagnetic waves and the measurand. This improved the quality factor of the resonant peaks in reflection coefficient, thereby allowing us to correlate the number of bacteria to the shift in resonant frequency. Selectivity towards E. coli bacteria can be achieved by immobilizing a functionalization layer of anti E. coli antibody on the central conductor of CPW/DMTL. With sufficient calibration, this method can be used to detect and measure the concentration of other pathogenic bacteria as well. © 2013 Springer Science+Business Media New York.

Minimization of car vibrations has been a topic of research over the years and many control strategies have been developed. Therefore, there needs to be a method for active vibration control in cars. This paper presents two methods for designing the controller for a quarter car model which would help in minimizing car vibrations and increasing passenger comfort subjected to road disturbances. The methodologies used are H-infinity and H-2 optimal control. The main aim of this article is to design a controller to control the response of a quarter car model to various road inputs. This is a non-linear model with 2 degrees of freedom. It is linearized and modelled as a disturbance rejection (regulatory) problem wherein the effect of disturbances are minimised. Different weighing functions have been considered to take the impact of road disturbances into account. The results are compared with the Proportional Integral Derivative (PID) controller designed using the same system parameters and performance specifications. The behaviour of the open loop and closed loop system is observed by examining the impulse and frequency responses in MATLAB. A detailed discussion is done with the choice of weighing functions. It is found that the disturbance rejection techniques suggested in this paper help in improving the system response. © 2016, IFAC (International Federation of Automatic Control) Hosting by Elsevier Ltd.

A grounding practice which has been widely adopted as a personal protective measure for carrying out de-energized line works is causing many fatal accidents. The conclusion was arrived after analyzing a fatal accident. This method of protective grounding is still practiced by many distribution companies without realizing the imminent danger involved. The paper explains how this particular practice gives rise to transferred potential and why its effects cannot be controlled in 3wire overhead distribution lines running with no ground wire. The paper emphasizes to discard this practice and to include this safety aspect in IEEE 1048 - Guide for Protective Grounding of Power Lines, to prevent the accidents happening worldwide wherever this grounding practice is being followed. © 2014 IEEE.
