    Wave Glider is a combination sea-surface and underwater vehicle comprised of a submerged "glider" that is attached to a surface float via a flexible tether. Fig. 1 shows the Wave Glider. It is propelled by the conversion of ocean wave energy into forward thrust, independent of wave direction. The wave energy propulsion system is purely mechanical; no electrical power is generated by the propulsion... View full abstract»

    Aging and degradation of transportation infrastructure pose significant safety concerns, especially in light of increased use of these structures. The economic downturn further exacerbates such concerns, especially for critical structures such as bridges, where replacement is infeasible and maintenance and repair are expensive. The US Federal Highway Administration has classified over 25% of the b... View full abstract»

    Fourier analysis is often thought of as a technique for measuring the spectral content of a signal over the period in which the signal was measured. In this column, we discuss techniques that allow you to use Fourier analysis to provide accurate measurements of the instantaneous frequency of a signal. We discuss the short-time Fourier transform and its main problem; we explain why it gives a very ... View full abstract»

    This paper is about measurements but not electrical measurements. It is about measuring stock market patterns. After a 38-year career in fields closely related to electrical measurements, I retired in 1996 and started looking into how I was going to invest my retirement nest egg. I discovered a method called "technical analysis" and was hooked. Technical analysis attempts to find good trades and i... View full abstract»
