    Laser scanners find potential application in the automotive field for driver assistance and autonomous operation. Laser scanners that are commercially available are expensive compared to the cost of other commercial automotive sensors, limiting their implementation in cars at this time. The development in laser scanner technology and the anticipated reduced prices that will be available after mass... View full abstract»

    Robust stability and control for systems that combine continuous-time and discrete-time dynamics. This article is a tutorial on modeling the dynamics of hybrid systems, on the elements of stability theory for hybrid systems, and on the basics of hybrid control. The presentation and selection of material is oriented toward the analysis of asymptotic stability in hybrid systems and the design of sta... View full abstract»

    We examine vectors and attitude in Engineering with greater attention to detail than in earlier works on the subject. This tutorial is an expansion of part of a survey of attitude representations. The most salient characteristic of this work is a greater emphasis on the distinction between physical vectors and their representation as column vectors. The need for such a treatment arises most strong... View full abstract»
