  • Minimally actuated walking: Identifying core challenges to economical legged locomotion reveals novel solutions 

    Schroeder, Ryan T.; Bertram, John Edward Arthur (Frontiers Media, Schulich School of Engineering, University of Calgary, https://www.frontiersin.org/about/author-guidelines#OpenAccess, 2018-05-22)
    Terrestrial organisms adept at locomotion employ strut-like legs for economical and robust movement across the substrate. Although it is relatively easy to observe and analyze details of the solutions these organic systems ...
  • Properties of traditional bamboo carrying poles have implications for user interactions 

    Schroeder, Ryan T.; Croft, James L.; Ngo, Giang D.; Bertram, John Edward Arthur (Public Library of Science (PLoS), Schulich School of Engineering, University of Calgary, http://journals.plos.org/plosone/s/licenses-and-copyright, 2018-05-10)
    Compliant bamboo poles have long been used for load carriage in Asian cultures. Although this custom differs from Western conventions of rigid body attachments (e.g. backpack), potential benefits include reduced peak ...
  • Identifying Appropriate Dynamic Time Warping, DTW, Metrics to Evaluate the Quality of Vocoder Time-Stretched Speech Phrases 

    Tanaka, Mai; Smith, Michael Richard (IEEE, Schulich School of Engineering, Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of Calgary, Post-print, 2018-07)
    To improve comprehension in a noisy environment, we suggest sending short speech phrases slowed by a phase vocoder directly to seniors’ hearing aids. Dynamic time warping, DTW, metrics for evaluating the speech quality of ...
  • Evaluation of Dynamic Time Warp Barycenter Averaging (DBA) for its Potential in Generating a Consensus Nanopore Signal for Genetic and Epigenetic Sequences 

    Chan, Rachel; Gordon, Paul M. K.; Smith, Michael Richard (IEEE, Schulich School of Engineering, Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of Calgary, Post-print, 2018-07)
    Epigenetics is a chemical modification to DNA without changes in the base sequence. While it is known that epigenetic modifications have far reaching implications on how genes are expressed, it is difficult to identify ...
  • Remote Sensing of Wildland Fire-induced Risk Assessment Framework 

    Hassan, Quazi K.; Ahmed, M. Razu; Rahaman, Khan Rubayet (National Fire Information Database (NFID) Project, Schulich School of Engineering, Geomatics Engineering, University of Calgary, 2017-12)
    Wildland fire is one of the critical natural hazards that pose a significant threat to the communities located in the vicinity of forested/vegetated areas. In this report, our overall goal was to use very high spatial ...
  • Tightly-Coupled GNSS/Vision Using a Sky-Pointing Camera for Vehicle Navigation in Urban Areas 

    Gakne, Paul Verlaine; O'Keefe, Kyle P.G. (MDPI, Schulich School of Engineering, Geomatics Engineering, University of Calgary, http://www.mdpi.com/journal/sensors/apc, Publisher's version, 2018-04-17)
    This paper presents a method of fusing the ego-motion of a robot or a land vehicle estimated from an upward-facing camera with Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) signals for navigation purposes in urban environments. ...
  • Surface Estimation for Microwave Imaging 

    Kurrant, Douglas; Bourqui, Jeremie; Fear, Elise (MDPI, Schulich School of Engineering, Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of Calgary, http://www.mdpi.com/about/openaccess, Publisher's version, 2017-07-19)
    Biomedical imaging and sensing applications in many scenarios demand accurate surface estimation from a sparse set of noisy measurements. These measurements may arise from a variety of sensing modalities, including laser ...
  • Application of Extended Vortex Theory for Blade Element Analysis of Horizontal-axis Wind Turbines 

    Wood, D.H. (Renewable Energy, Schulich School of Engineering, University of Calgary, https://www.elsevier.com/about/our-business/policies/sharing, Post-print, 2018)
    Vortex theory is used in blade element analysis (BEA) of wind turbines to account for the finite number of blades, N, usually in terms of Prandtl's “tip loss function”, F. Wood et al. [1] calculated alternative “trailing ...
  • Environmental Modelling 

    Hassan, Quazi K. (Schulich School of Engineering, Geomatics Engineering, 2018)
    This is a lecture note series for the course ENGO 583/ENEN 635 Environmental Modelling. These cover the following topics: nature and purpose of environmental modelling; the top-down and the bottom-up approaches; typology ...
  • Assessment of Different Sensor Configurations for Collaborative Driving in Urban Environments 

    Petovello, Mark G; O'Keefe, Kyle; Wei, P; Basnayake, Chaminda (Hindawi, Schulich School of Engineering, Geomatics Engineering, University of Calgary, https://www.hindawi.com/journals/apm/guidelines/, Publisher's version, 2013-01-07)
    Vehicle-to-vehicle relative navigation of a network of vehicles travelling in an urban canyon is assessed using least-squares and Kalman filtering covariance simulation techniques. Between-vehicle differential GPS is ...
