TL;DR: Hardware results demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed formation control strategies, which injects interrobot damping via passivity techniques and accounts for actuator saturation.
Abstract: This paper presents a behavior-based approach to formation maneuvers for groups of mobile robots. Complex formation maneuvers are decomposed into a sequence of maneuvers between formation patterns. The paper presents three formation control strategies. The first strategy uses relative position information configured in a bidirectional ring topology to maintain the formation. The second strategy injects interrobot damping via passivity techniques. The third strategy accounts for actuator saturation. Hardware results demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed control strategies.
TL;DR: The paper considers the objective of optimally specifying redundant control effectors under constraints, a problem commonly referred to as control allocation, posed as a mixed /spl lscr//sub 2/-norm optimization objective and converted to a quadratic programming formulation.
Abstract: The paper considers the objective of optimally specifying redundant control effectors under constraints, a problem commonly referred to as control allocation. The problem is posed as a mixed /spl lscr//sub 2/-norm optimization objective and converted to a quadratic programming formulation. The implementation of an interior-point algorithm is presented. Alternative methods including fixed-point and active set methods are used to evaluate the reliability, accuracy and efficiency of a primal-dual interior-point method. While the computational load of the interior-point method is found to be greater for problems of small size, convergence to the optimal solution is also more uniform and predictable. In addition, the properties of the algorithm scale favorably with problem size.
TL;DR: It is found that craters as small as ∼3 kilometers can eject ∼107 decimeter-sized fragments from Mars, which is enough to expect those fragments to appear in the terrestrial collection, and it is estimated that the martian meteorites will be biased toward younger ages, consistent with the meteorite collection.
Abstract: We performed high-resolution computer simulations of impacts into homogeneous and layered martian terrain analogs to try to account for the ages and characteristics of the martian meteorite collection found on Earth. We found that craters as small as ∼3 kilometers can eject ∼10 7 decimeter-sized fragments from Mars, which is enough to expect those fragments to appear in the terrestrial collection. This minimum crater diameter is at least four times smaller than previous estimates and depends on the physical composition of the target material. Terrain covered by a weak layer such as an impact-generated regolith requires larger, therefore rarer, impacts to eject meteorites. Because older terrain is more likely to be mantled with such material, we estimate that the martian meteorites will be biased toward younger ages, which is consistent with the meteorite collection.

TL;DR: High-Speed Digital System Design bridges the gap from theory to implementation in the real world and allows readers to quickly begin designing their own high-speed systems and diagnosing existing designs for errors.
Abstract: High-Speed Digital System Design bridges the gap from theory to implementation in the real world. Systems with clock speeds in low megahertz range qualify for high-speed. Proper design results in quality digital transmissions and lowers the chance for errors. This book is for computer and electrical engineers who may or may not have learned electromagnetic theory. The presentation style allows readers to quickly begin designing their own high-speed systems and diagnosing existing designs for errors. After studying this book, readers will be able to: Design the power distribution system for a printed circuit board to minimize noise Plan the layers of a PCB for signals, power, and ground to maximize signal quality and minimize noise Include test structures in the printed circuit board to easily diagnose manufacturing mistakes Choose the best PCB design parameters such a trace width, height,and routed path to ensure the most stable characteristic impedance Determine the correct terminati n to minimize reflections Predict the delay caused by a given PCB trace Minimize driver power consumption using AC terminations Compensate for discontinuities along a PCB trace Use pre-emphasis and equalization techniques to counteract lossy transmission lines Determine the amount of crosstalk between two traces Diagnose existing PCBs to determine the sources of errors
TL;DR: The OSIRIS-REx Camera Suite (OCAMS) as discussed by the authors consists of three cameras, the MapCam, the SamCam and the PolyCam, which are used to collect color images of the surface of the asteroid Bennu.
Abstract: The OSIRIS-REx Camera Suite (OCAMS) will acquire images essential to collecting a sample from the surface of Bennu. During proximity operations, these images will document the presence of satellites and plumes, record spin state, enable an accurate model of the asteroid’s shape, and identify any surface hazards. They will confirm the presence of sampleable regolith on the surface, observe the sampling event itself, and image the sample head in order to verify its readiness to be stowed. They will document Bennu’s history as an example of early solar system material, as a microgravity body with a planetesimal size-scale, and as a carbonaceous object. OCAMS is fitted with three cameras. The MapCam will record color images of Bennu as a point source on approach to the asteroid in order to connect Bennu’s ground-based point-source observational record to later higher-resolution surface spectral imaging. The SamCam will document the sample site before, during, and after it is disturbed by the sample mechanism. The PolyCam, using its focus mechanism, will observe the sample site at sub-centimeter resolutions, revealing surface texture and morphology. While their imaging requirements divide naturally between the three cameras, they preserve a strong degree of functional overlap. OCAMS and the other spacecraft instruments will allow the OSIRIS-REx mission to collect a sample from a microgravity body on the same visit during which it was first optically acquired from long range, a useful capability as humanity reaches out to explore near-Earth, Main-Belt and Jupiter Trojan asteroids.
