Chris Kitts (Mechanical Engineering) and two graduate students have had a new book chapter published on their work in multi-robot system control: Model-Based Nonlinear Cluster Space Control of Mobile Robot Formations, Multi-Robot Systems, Trends and Development, Toshiyuki Yasuda (Ed.), ISBN: 978-953-307-425-2, InTech.
Nam Ling (Computer Engineering) received a $12,304 TSC grant for "High-Performance Video Codec System."
The Markkula Center for Applied Ethics made the following awards of Hackworth Grants for Faculty Research in Applied Ethics. Another round of grant funding will be held late in the Spring Quarter:
· Thomas Plante, SCU Psychology, $5,000 for a project called, "Ten Years of Crisis: What the Catholic Church Has Learned and Done to Prevent Clergy Sex Abuse Since Dallas."
· Laura Robinson, SCU Sociology, $5,000 for a project called, "The Ethical Implications of Politicized Victimhood: Moral Accounting and Spheres of Moral Concern." Professor Robinson will be using the grant to complete her book manuscript, "Negotiating 9/11."
Tokunbo Ogunfunmi (Electrical Engineering) and a Ph.D. student published a conference paper presented at the IEEE International Conference on Consumer Electronics (ICCE) in Las Vegas Jan. 9-12. The paper is titled "A VLSI Architecture of SVC Encoder for a Mobile System." At the same conference, Ogunfunmi and another Ph.D. student published a conference paper titled "Efficient Fast Algorithm and FPSoC for Integer and Fractional Motion Estimation." Additionally, Ogunfunmi and a Ph.D. student Thomas Paul had a paper accepted for publication in the IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems, Part I. The paper is titled "On the Convergence Behavior of Affine Projection Algorithm for Adaptive Filters."
