Studying The Effects Of Serpentine Soil On Adapted And Non-Adapted Species Using Arduino Technology, Kiana Saniee, Edward Himelblau, Brian Paavo 2016 California Polytechnic State University - San Luis Obispo

Studying The Effects Of Serpentine Soil On Adapted And Non-Adapted Species Using Arduino Technology, Kiana Saniee, Edward Himelblau, Brian Paavo

STAR (STEM Teacher and Researcher) Presentations

Abstract: Serpentine soils are formed from ultramafic rocks and are represent an extreme environment for plants. Serpentine soils are unique in that they carry high concentrations of heavy metals, are nutrient deficient, particularly in calcium, and have poor water retention capabilities. Although these soils constitute harsh conditions for plant growth, there are a number of species that are adapted and even endemic to serpentine soil. Water retention by commercial potting mix was compared with serpentine soil. Also, serpentine adapted and non-adapted species were grown in both soil treatments and physiological data were collected. We used the Arduino electronic platform to ...


Mechanical Design And Optimization Of An Interactive Animatronic Bald Eagle, Eric Burns 2016 Georgia Southern University

Mechanical Design And Optimization Of An Interactive Animatronic Bald Eagle, Eric Burns

Phi Kappa Phi Research Symposium

Animatronics is a specialized sub-category of mechatronics, a fusion of mechanical and electrical engineering. The field has grown from small, individual projects into a major industry. As animatronics progress, mechanical engineers are pushed to design internal structures which occupy ever-decreasing spaces and to ensure designs can undergo maintenance and modifications smoothly. This research investigates methods of reducing space required for mechanisms and several other beneficial methods of development as well as varying satisfactions for audiences when exposed to actor-controlled systems rather than pre-scripted functions. The mechanical systems are designed using CAD software available at Georgia Southern. On-campus, resources are used ...

El Capitán: Cal Poly Rose Float Digital Drive System, Gregory Raffi Baghdikian

Computer Engineering

In today’s world of smartphones, self-driving cars, and internet-connected coffee makers, it seems as if computers are contained in everything around us. These “embedded systems” have become critical components of our lives, improving everything about the things they control, from cost, to speed, to simplicity. One area that embedded systems has hardly gained a foothold is in the world of floatbuilding. Most of the floats in the Tournament of Roses Parade, including the one built jointly by Cal Poly San Luis Obispo and Cal Poly Pomona, are technologically very simple, using mostly analog components and rudimentary discrete digital logic ...

Rapid Battery Exchange Automation, Andrea Everson

Computer Engineering

With the drastic threat of exhausting the world’s fossil fuels, society has been scrambling to find alternative forms of energy for transportation. One of these viable options is an electric vehicle powered by batteries. While this idea is fairly viable, consumers are looking to have the same experience with an electric car than they would with a gas-powered vehicle. One of their major concerns is the lack of range in an electric vehicle.

This project aims to present a solution that would extend the range by allowing users to quickly go from low battery to fully charged battery by ...

This paper presents a modified design of Area-Efficient Low power Carry Select Adder (CSLA) Circuit. In digital adders, the speed of addition is limited by the time required to transmit a carry through the adder. Carry select adder processors and systems. In digital adders, the speed of addition is limited by the time required to propagate a carry through the adder. The sum for each bit position in an elementary adder is generated sequentially only after the previous bit position has been summed and a carry propagated into the next position. The major speed limitation in any adder is in ...


Implementation Of Efficient Carry Select Adder On Fpga, Balaji Goswami, Ms. Priya, B. Rajanh 2016 RajLakshmi Engineering College, Tamil Nadu, India

Implementation Of Efficient Carry Select Adder On Fpga, Balaji Goswami, Ms. Priya, B. Rajanh

Kirat Pal Singh

In this paper, we have proposed a modified carry select adder which is known as fastest adders that can perform arithmetic operations in Digital signal processors. Modification in the gate level of the Square root Carry Select Adder (SQRT CSLA) structure results in the reduction of area and power of the CSLA structure which offers a simple and efficient function. Depending upon the Regular SQRT CSLA, we have modified the structure of the adders. The proposed design for 128-bit modified CSLA has reduced area and power as compared with the regular SQRT CSLA with only a slight increase in the ...

Osm Data Model, Open Source 2016 MANO

Osm Data Model, Open Source

Journal

Today’s service providers have a growing interest in migrating custom, hardware-based network functions to the cloud. Cloud-based network functions—referred to as virtual network functions (VNFs)—are the software implementation of network functions that can be deployed on a network function virtualization infrastructure (NFVI). VNFs break the dependence on custom hardware appliances, allowing network functions, such as DNS, caching, and firewalls, to run in software.
This new cloud model paradigm is referred to as Network Function Virtualization (NFV).
NFV shows promise as a way to deliver VNFs on virtual machines on commodity off-the-shelf (COTS) infrastructure. NFV promises agile service ...

Design And Implementation Of New Lightweight Encryption Technique, M. Sangeetha, M. Jagadeeswari

Sakshi Sharma

Lightweight cryptography is an interesting field which provides security, higher throughput, low power consumption and compactness. Several algorithms like PRESENT, CLEFIA, SEA, TEA, Hummingbird and KANTAN have made the mark to be used as lightweight algorithms. In this paper, we present the design of hybrid lightweight encryption system based on bit permutation instruction GRP (group operation) and the S-box of PRESENT. A new hybrid system is proposed that provides more compact results in terms of both memory space and gate equivalents. This design has resulted in most compact implementation in terms of memory requirement. By using the S-box of PRESENT ...

Ac Power Monitoring System Provides Individual Circuit Energy Consumption Data, Jared L. Newman, Grayson H. Dearing, Luke M. Tomlinson, Frederick G. Harmon

The Research and Scholarship Symposium

Motivated by high energy costs, people and organizations want to cut back on their energy consumption. However, the only feedback consumers typically receive is a monthly bill listing their total electricity usage (in kWh). Some companies have begun developing systems that allow households and organizations to monitor their energy usage for individual circuits. Available systems are expensive so a CU engineering senior design team has designed, fabricated, and tested a system for use at Cedarville University. The AC power monitoring system has the ability to measure energy consumption for each individual circuit in the breaker panel, store the data, and ...
