Reduced Fuel Emissions Through Connected Vehicles And Truck Platooning, Paul D. Brummitt 2022 East Tennessee State University

Reduced Fuel Emissions Through Connected Vehicles And Truck Platooning, Paul D. Brummitt

Electronic Theses and Dissertations

Vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) and vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) communication enable the sharing, in real time, of vehicular locations and speeds with other vehicles, traffic signals, and traffic control centers. This shared information can help traffic to better traverse intersections, road segments, and congested neighborhoods, thereby reducing travel times, increasing driver safety, generating data for traffic planning, and reducing vehicular pollution. This study, which focuses on vehicular pollution, used an analysis of data from NREL, BTS, and the EPA to determine that the widespread use of V2V-based truck platooning—the convoying of trucks in close proximity to one another so as to reduce air ...

Smart Bottle Ble Integration, Joshua M. Rizzolo 2022 California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo

Smart Bottle Ble Integration, Joshua M. Rizzolo

Electrical Engineering

In 1975, four percent of children aged five to nineteen were categorized as overweight or obese. As of 2016, this figure climbed above 18 percent [1]. Researchers at California Polytechnic State University San Luis Obispo (Cal Poly) want to investigate the effect of overeating in early childhood on later childhood obesity. This research requires collecting feeding pattern data on infants, which proves challenging. Parents cannot be relied on to regularly collect clean data due to factors including work schedule, multitasking, and general exhaustion. Thus, we have developed a tool to automatically collect data on feeding frequency and duration, as well ...

Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Repository

The communications industry continues to evolve to meet the ever-growing demands of fast connectivity and higher energy-efficiency and has emerged the concept of Internet of Things (IoT) systems. IoT devices can be run on Wi-Fi or cellular network, helping businesses to receive higher return on investments.

As billions of devices on cellular networks operate on the limited licensed spectrum, it is becoming scarcer. Mobile network operators are investigating to access the immense unlicensed spectrum, on which Wi-Fi is prominently operated. Managing this coexistence between the cellular and Wi-Fi networks poses several challenges.

One challenge is the spectrum sharing that affects ...
