Energy Safety Management: Mitigating Loss Of Control Inflight, 2017 Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University - Prescott
Energy Safety Management: Mitigating Loss Of Control Inflight, Juan Merkt
National Training Aircraft Symposium (NTAS)
Under the new Airman Certification Standards (ACS), the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has mandated for the first time that private and commercial pilot candidates demonstrate understanding of energy management in several areas of operation. Recognition by the FAA of the importance of energy management is a welcome development, given the potential lethal consequences of mishandling the airplane’s energy state. Poor management of the energy associated with vertical flight path and/or airspeed is a significant factor in loss of control in flight and runway excursions during landing, two leading causes of fatal accidents in aviation. While most pilots are ...
The Tax Treatment Of Tokens: What Does It Betoken?, 2017 University of Pennsylvania Law School
The Tax Treatment Of Tokens: What Does It Betoken?, David J. Shakow
Digital tokens have been used to raise substantial amounts of money. But little attention has been paid to the tax consequences surrounding their issuance and sale. There are significant potential tax liabilities lurking in the use of digital tokens. But, because of the anonymity inherent in the blockchain structures used for the issuance of tokens and payments for them, there is a significant question as to whether those tax liabilities will ever be collected.
How Governmental Greenhouse Gas Science Has Been Weathered Through Time And Why It Matters, 2017 California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo
How Governmental Greenhouse Gas Science Has Been Weathered Through Time And Why It Matters, Christopher Apple
STAR (STEM Teacher and Researcher) Presentations
Global consumption of materials and energy is accelerating. The rate of plant and animal species extinction is accelerating. On a finite Earth with a growing population, current consumption cannot continue sustainably. Greenhouse gases (GHGs) tell us an important part of this story. The Global Greenhouse Gas Reference Network, managed by scientists at NOAA’s Earth System Research Laboratory, is the largest greenhouse gas analysis network in the world. It has been shaped by scientific questions, stagnant funding despite rises in research costs, and the task of understanding how the Earth system will respond to a changing climate. The Network began ...

Design Of A Virtual Laboratory For Automation Control, Zelin Zhu
Modeling, Simulation & Visualization Engineering Theses & Dissertations
In the past, only students who studied on campus were able to access laboratory equipment in traditional lab courses; distance learning students, enrolled in online courses, were at a disadvantage for they could learn basic lab experiment principles but could never experience hands-on learning. Modeling and simulation can be a powerful tool for generating virtual laboratories for distance learning students. This thesis describes the design and development of a virtual laboratory for automation control using mechanical, electrical, and pneumatic components for an automation and control course at Old Dominion University. This virtual laboratory application was implemented for two platforms — Windows ...
Image Descriptors From Convnets: Comparing Global Pooling Methods For Image Retrieval, 2017 University of Wollongong
Image Descriptors From Convnets: Comparing Global Pooling Methods For Image Retrieval, Ian Comor, Yan Zhao, Zhimin Gao, Luping Zhou, Lei Wang
2016 IEEE.A major component of a generic image retrieval pipeline is producing concise and effective descriptors for each image. Previous works have shown impressive results in image retrieval when using descriptors from the black-box output of the fully-connected stage of pretrained Convolutional Neural Networks (ConvNets). However, previous work on descriptors pooled from the deep feature maps from late convolutional layers can produce more discriminative descriptors for generic image retrieval, while being relatively concise. When planning to globally pool such feature maps from a ConvNet, some options to consider are (1) the depth of the network, (2) choice of layer ...
A Knowledge Graph Framework For Detecting Traffic Events Using Stationary Cameras, 2017 Wright State University - Main Campus
A Knowledge Graph Framework For Detecting Traffic Events Using Stationary Cameras, Roopteja Muppalla, Sarasi Lalithsena, Tanvi Banerjee, Amit Sheth
With the rapid increase in urban development, it is critical to utilize dynamic sensor streams for traffic understanding, especially in larger cities where route planning or infrastructure planning is more critical. This creates a strong need to understand traffic patterns using ubiquitous sensors to allow city officials to be better informed when planning urban construction and to provide an understanding of the traffic dynamics in the city. In this study, we propose our framework ITSKG (Imagery-based Traffic Sensing Knowledge Graph) which utilizes the stationary traffic camera information as sensors to understand the traffic patterns. The proposed system extracts image-based features ...
