  • Active wing shaping control of an elastic aircraft 

    Nobleheart, Wilfred; Chakravarthy, Animesh; Nguyen, Nhan (IEEE, 2014-06-04)
    In recent years, lightweight materials have been adopted in airframe design as a means to reduce aircraft weight. These lightweight materials provide adequate strength and durability, but at the expense of reduced structural ...
  • Ad-hoc networks and layer 2 tunnels 

    Baloch, Fariha; Strandmark, C.; Muralidhran, S.; Bhagavathula, Ravi; Pendse, Ravi (IEEE, 2004-09-26)
    The reach of an ad hoc network is very limited and researchers have studied this issue with great interest. A node that wants to send data to a remote node that is outside its transmission range depends on the intermediate ...
  • Ad-hoc nodes and internet connectivity using pseudo-wire interfaces 

    Thanthry, Nagaraja; Namuduri, Kameswara; Pendse, Ravi (IEEE, 2003-10-06)
    An increasing interest in supporting the nomadic nature of mobile nodes has lead to interesting ideas towards the deployment of Internet access to ad-hoc nodes. Most of the proposed solutions using mobile IP assume that ...
  • An adaptive algorithm for sensor activation in renewable energy based sensor systems 

    Mereddy, Sandeep Reddy; Jaggi, Neeraj; Pendse, Ravi (IEEE, 2009-12-07)
    Future sensor networks would comprise of sensing devices with energy harvesting capabilities from renewable energy sources such as solar power. A key research question in such sensor systems is to maximize the asymptotic ...
  • Adaptive critic flight control
