    Many times during an engineer's career, assignments will be given that don't seem to fit the normal approaches or canned solutions. While looking at the problem, frequent comments will be heard, “Can't be done,” “It's never been done,” “Tried it. Didn't work,” “A waste of time and money,” and the li... View full abstract»

    What are the little things in life that sets us on a course that ends up being a lifelong career? As a child growing up in the 1950s, I had no clue about what I would ultimately do in life. The fateful event of inheriting my older cousin's electric train set (that was a big thing in those days for young boys) in 1959 when I was five years old began a sequence of events that ...

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (326 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Most students, especially at the undergraduate level, have no idea what their professors do besides teaching. They see their professors show up prepared for class and turn back graded papers, quizzes, or exams. They have no clue what the professors do when not teaching. This article is intended to give a brief discussion on what professors do. Although this will help all studen... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (734 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    The gray codes are named after Frank Gray, who patented (U.S. Patent 2 632 058) the use of them in shaft encoders in 1953. Because of the reflection property of the code, sometimes the term Gray code is used to refer to reflected binary codes. The Gray codes are cycling in nature and maintain the unit hamming distance between one code word to the next code word. To visualize the attributes of refl... View full abstract»

    This article introduces a survey on the state-of-the-art and the technological progress in medium-voltage (MV) power cables for distribution systems. At present, MV cable insulation technology is characterized by a changeover from the conventional lapped-paper, paper-insulated laminated (PIL), polyvinyl chloride (PVC), crosslinked polyethylene (XLPE) to tree-retardant cross-linked polyethylene (TR...

    The Kinect camera has been a great success in gaming but more importantly it has opened up new fields for researchers. The data streamed from the Kinect in real time requires new haptic algorithms. By developing a novel haptic rendering algorithm we have shown feasibility for using the Kinect in telerobotic applications such as robotic surgery. Providing the surgeon with a "sense of touch" could i... View full abstract»

    All the physical quantities are put under the classification as being vectors or scalars depending upon whether they are associated with direction or not. The "direction" under consideration is a mechanical attribute. Electrical quantities having an independent and unique existence cannot in any way be related to what is known as "mechanical direction." They cannot be put under such a classificati...
