Estimating forces acting on an underwater vehicle with G.P.S. and Kalman filtering
A discrete state space model is developed which describes an autonomous underwater vehicle and incorporates the effects of currents, sea state, and wind as it travels through the sea. Heading commands are calculated to ...
Frequency-sampling design of two-dimensional FIR digital filters with nonuniform samples
Various approaches to the frequency-sampling design of two-dimensional FIR filters are analyzed. The IDFT approach requiring uniform sampling on a Cartesian grid is first described. A method which allows arbitrary placement ...
A computer simulation study of tripod follow-the-leader gait coordination for a hexapod walking machine
(Monterey, California: U.S. Naval Postgraduate School, 1987-06); NPS-52-87-023
A new type of gait and steering algorithm for use by a six-legged walking machine is developed and presented in this study. The spatially oriented tripod follow-the-leader gait is an extension of previous studies of ...
