    The development of an adaptive filter system, capable of reducing significantly the effect of siren noise within the cab of an emergency vehicle, is described. The system is capable of removing the siren noise picked up by the radio microphone inside the vehicle, without degrading the wanted voice signal, thus allowing the siren to be used at all times.

    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1015 KB)

    The creation and development of multi-body dynamic analysis models for commercial vehicles are described. A TCS programme was the ideal solution for carrying out this work, enabling the TCS Associate to draw on the company's wealth of experience in practical testing and vehicle dynamic behaviour and the theoretical knowledge of the University's Mechanisms and Machines Research Group. This TCS Prog... View full abstract»

  • Advanced control methods for French fry quality improvement

    Publication Year: 2002, Page(s):26 - 32
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (2089 KB)

    Describes the results of a TCS Programme that investigated approaches for the improved control of a French fry production line. Initial knowledge elicitation from process experts, coupled with data analysis, revealed the existing operational strategy. The information gathered highlighted limitations of the current strategy, indicated how it could be improved on and allowed a benefits analysis to b... View full abstract»

    Water leak detection systems are a specialist service applicable in sensitive areas and important buildings. They provide early warning of leaks and thus help to prevent damage to equipment and buildings. These are often in areas of uninsured risk. The article describes a TCS Programme to develop a new microcontroller system, its basic operating principles and the benefits to the company. View full abstract»

    In the light of recent terrorist events there is more interest than ever in smart cards. Many national governments are considering issuing multi-application smart ID cards which can act as passports as well as allow the cardholder access to other services such as library, electronic tax returns and driver's licence. The article provides an update on relevant issues in the rapidly-changing arena. View full abstract»

    For part 1, see ibid. December 2001. This three-part article reviews the techniques used to design controllers, employing linear programming, that minimise the maximum amplitude of selected signals. These controllers can satisfy design specifications for saturation characteristics on amplitude or rate. It is shown also how given an existing linear controller it is possible to check if, for a given... View full abstract»
