    Organized in 1878, the Ecole sup??rieure de T??l??graphie (EST) became the first school in France to offer a program in electrical engineering. Although the founding of later French electrical engineering schools involved local governments, private enterprise, the universities, and even the French electrical engineering society, the EST was established by the state specifically for telegraph instr...

    This paper points out that a spreadsheet program on a home or personal computer permits the solution of partial differential equations in two independent variables with considerably less effort than conventional programming languages. The computational molecule approach is identified as a natural approach for using spreadsheets to solve elliptic, parabolic, and hyperbolic partial differential equa... View full abstract»

    A software educational tool (ET) has been developed that enables students of computer architecture to simulate a wide variety of computers on a fixed microprogram-organized-hardware (MOH). The user defines a computer by using ET to enter the appropriate microprogram. Machine language programs (macroprograms) may then be entered and a simulation made of their execution on the computer defined by th... View full abstract»

    This paper describes a rather simple but complete object recognition system that was implemented in one semester as a class project in our course in computer vision. The system accepts video images of three-dimensional objects composed of configurations of toy blocks and delivers a one-word classification (e.g., ``arch'') of the scene. The strategy employed is one of identifying individual blocks,... View full abstract»

    In order to introduce sophomore engineering students to the scientific applications of personal computers, we have used a simple computer algorithm for analyzing linear systems. This algorithm, mathematically equivalent to Euler's method, is derived from the analog computer block diagram with which most students are either already familiar or the principles of which they can grasp very quickly. We... View full abstract»

  • A Methodology for Automatic Presentation of Exercise Problems Based on Related Text-Constructing Units

    Publication Year: 1987, Page(s):157 - 163
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1680 KB)

    This paper introduces a methodology for the automatic presentation of exercise problems. The autoselection of appropriate exercise problems is based on two factors: 1) the relationship between the exercise problems and the units constituting the paragraphs and chapters of a study text, and 2) the intellectual condition of the student. This method is very useful for the evaluation of the amount of ... View full abstract»

    Educational table-top robotic arms are used for robotics instruction at many colleges and universities. One of the most popular educational robots is the Rhino XR-2, a five-axis articulated coordinate robotic manipulator which features closed-loop feedback control with dc servomotors and optical encoders. This paper describes some enhancements to the XR-2 controller, including a global form of spe... View full abstract»

    The design of a Computing Science Academic Computing Facility (CSACF) which accommodates research, instruction, and administration by the Simon Fraser University School of Computing Science is described. The facility is designed to meet the hardware and software requirements of graduate and undergraduate instruction in fundamental and applied computing science, and to meet the requirements of rese...

    This paper describes an ``educational Ada1 tasking subsystem.'' It features an interpreter running Ada tasking programs and automatically giving information about each significant event occurring within tasks. These traces can also be given to a postprocessor which prints a schematic overview of the overall activity of the tasks and gives a separate listing of the activity of each task....

    Computer-aided testing can increase the efficiency and accuracy of university laboratory experiments, while also increasing student interest. Examples of computer-aided RF and microwave experiments being used in the Electronics Engineering Technology Program at Brigham Young University are given. The experiments use interactive programming in a scaled down, semi-automated method designed to minimi... View full abstract»

    A junior year, second semester course in microprocessors (??P) was developed in the Computer Engineering Area at Roger Williams College in the Spring, 1984. A hands-on approach was emphasized, and many experiments were performed in conjunction with the popular Motorola Educational Computer Board (ECB) with a 68090 ??P to provide the students experiences in software and hardware interfacing.
