Rebalancing Shared Mobility Systems By User Incentive Scheme Via Enforcement Learning, Matthew Brian Schofield 2021 Rowan University

Rebalancing Shared Mobility Systems By User Incentive Scheme Via Enforcement Learning, Matthew Brian Schofield

Theses and Dissertations

Shared mobility systems regularly suffer from an imbalance of vehicle supply within the system, leading to users being unable to receive service. If such imbalance problems are not mitigated some users will not be serviced. There is an increasing interest in the use of reinforcement learning (RL) techniques for improving the resource supply balance and service level of systems. The goal of these techniques is to produce an effective user incentivization policy scheme to encourage users of a shared mobility system to slightly alter their travel behavior in exchange for a small monetary incentive. These slight changes in user behavior ...

A major limitation to building credible soil carbon sequestration programs is the cost of measuring soil carbon change. Diffuse reflectance spectroscopy (DRS) is considered a viable low-cost alternative to traditional laboratory analysis of soil organic carbon (SOC). While numerous studies have shown that DRS can produce accurate and precise estimates of SOC across landscapes, whether DRS can detect subtle management induced changes in SOC at a given site has not been resolved. Here, we leverage archived soil samples from seven long-term research trials in the U.S. to test this question using mid infrared (MIR) spectroscopy coupled with the USDA-NRCS ...

Neural Network Model For Estimation Of The Induced Electric Field During Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation, Oluwaponmile F. Afuwape, Olumide Olafasakin, David C. Jiles

Electrical and Computer Engineering Publications

Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) is a non-invasive neuromodulation technique with applications in brain mapping and effective neuronal connectivity. In its repetitive mode, it is used for the treatment of neurological and psychiatric disorders. It functions on the principle of electromagnetic induction, where generated magnetic fields (H-field) induce electric field (E-field) that stimulates the brain’s neurons. With TMS studies, accurate estimation of the induced E-field is usually necessary. However, this requires a lot of processes, including the three-dimensional head model generation from magnetic resonance images (MRI) using the SimNIBS software and finite element analysis to calculate the induced E-field. These ...
