The cheap air data computer for aviation applications

Jacek Pieniazek, Tomasz Rogalski

To present both the construction and sample applications of the small, low‐cost air data computer (ADC) with CAN interface, which has been designed at Avionics Department…

Local‐global stereo matching algorithm

Jie Zhao, Shuchun Yu, Hegao Cai

In order to solve the problem that dynamic programming (DP) stereo algorithm is slow, a local‐global stereo matching algorithm is presented. In this method, local and…

Control of suddenly expanded flow

S.A. Khan, E. Rathakrishnan

This paper presents an experimental investigation to study the effectiveness of micro jets under the influence of Over, Under, and Correct expansion to control the base…

Simple virtual attitude sensors for general aviation aircraft

Andrzej Tomczyk

This paper aims to present a proposal of a simple analytical redundancy method using for virtual attitude reference system design. The main idea of the project is applied…
