Design, Fabrication, and Testing of Anemr Gun Based Orbital Debris Impact Testing Platform

ABSTRACT

This paper describes the changes made from Cal Poly’s initial railgun system, the Mk. 1 railgun, to the Mk. 1.1 system, as well as the design, fabrication, and testing of a newer and larger Mk. 2 railgun system. The Mk. 1.1 system is developed as a more Continue reading

Multicore, Multithreaded, Phase-synchronous Fm Sound Synthesizer

ABSTRACT

This project implements a phase-synchronous FM synthesis algorithm in hardware. Envelope and low frequency oscillator modulation of oscillator parameters is implemented. The microcontroller the system is based on, the XMOS XS1-G4, allows for Continue reading

Robust Unconstrained Face Detection and Lip Localization Algorithm Using Gabor Filters

ABSTRACT

Automatic speech recognition (ASR) is a well-researched field of study aimed at augmenting the man-machine interface through interpretation of the spoken word. From in-car voice recognition systems to automated telephone directories, automatic Continue reading

Face and Lip Localization in Unconstrained Imagery

ABSTRACT

When combined with acoustical speech information, visual speech information (lip movement) significantly improves Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR) in acoustically noisy environments. Previous research has demonstrated that visual modality Continue reading
