    Deboned chicken, especially breast meat, is a fast-growing segment of the poultry industry. This trend has placed new challenges on automation in poultry plants for deboning and portioning pieces of meat. In particular, poultry processors are looking for ways to maximize their profits by efficiently using each piece of deboned meat. Automating the portioning and cutting processes is challenging du...

    This article presents a low-cost, real-time, multiple driver-in-the-loop vehicle simulator. This simulator is used to test ACC scenarios for highway traffic. The vehicle models and simulation maneuvers are created in Simulink. Moderate-complexity vehicle models with both lateral and longitudinal dynamics, incorporating engine and driveline subsystems were developed. A platoon of two vehicles are c... View full abstract»

    In this paper, the feasibility of using iron-cored permanent magnet linear synchronous motors (PMLSM) to develop microsteppers with multiple DOFs is demonstrated. To do this, the accuracy of the mathematical model of the longitudinal and normal forces generated by one PMLSM as well as the performance of a nonlinear feedback linearization controller are investigated. Demonstration of several PMLSMs... View full abstract»

    This article considers an adaptive control scheme previously developed for region 2 control of a variable speed wind turbine. In this paper, the question of theoretical stability of the torque controller is addressed, showing that the rotor speed is asymptotically stable under the torque control law in the constant wind speed input case and L2 stable with respect to time-varying wind in...

    Karl Kupfmuller (1897-1977) was a German engineer who began his professional career in the comparatively young telecommunications sector just after the First World War. During the 1920s, he worked for eight years at Siemens & Halske in Berlin. From 1928 onward, he held academic posts in electrical engineering, culminating as the chair of telecommunications in Darmstadt until 1963. While employed a... View full abstract»
