  • Schubert, Peter J.; Vitkin, Lev; Winters, Frank (2006)
    Model-based systems development relies upon the concept of an executable specification. A survey of published literature shows a wide range of definitions for executable specifications [1-10]. In this paper, we attempt to ...
  • Schubert, Peter J.; Saxena, Roopesh; Pinagapani, Sachi; Gopal, Madana (2006-04-03)
    Through the use of finite-element modeling, pressure patterns on the underside of seat foam can be computed for a variety of occupants and seating positions. A design tool has been created which allows an engineer to ...
  • Schubert, Peter J. (David Publishing, 2016)
    Hydrogen fuel cell cars are now available for lease and for sale. Renewable hydrogen fuel can be produced from water via electrolysis, or from biomass via gasification. Electrolysis is power-hungry with high demand from ...
  • Schubert, Peter J. (2001)
    Increasing sophistication of electronic safety systems requires more advanced tools for design and optimization. Systems of safety products already being designed are becoming too interdependent to calibrate as stand-alone ...
  • Schubert, Peter J.; Fu, Y. (TechConnect, 2014)
    Grid-level storage of renewable energy using electrolytes from seawater is a platform technology with multiple byproducts and use-case scenarios. The core application is to provide load-leveling for intermittent sources ...
  • Schubert, Peter J. (2014-11)
  • Schubert, Peter J. (2009)
    Agricultural residue, the organic matter left over after grain harvesting, has the potential to replace a large fraction of our petroleum and coal use, making this a significant national benefit. However, agricultural ...
  • Schubert, Peter J.; Vitkin, Lev; Braun, David (2007)
    Audio playbacks are mechanisms which read data from a storage medium and produce commands and signals which an audio system turns into music. Playbacks are constantly changed to meet market demands, requiring that the ...
  • Kragt Finnell, Abigail J.; Heng, Penghui; Powell, Sawyer H.; Schubert, Peter J. (IEEE, 2019-10)
    Wireless Power Transfer (WPT) from space-to-earth at a large scale will not be possible until the Side Lobe Levels (SLL) are reduced many orders of magnitude from the current technology available today. To accomplish this, ...
  • Schubert, Peter J. (Juniper Publishers, 2019-11)
    Extraction of purified metals from extraterrestrial materials can be accomplished in several ways, such as beneficiation, hydrogen reduction, recovery of spent rockets, direct melting of iron meteorites, and plasma isotope ...
  • Kragt Finnell, Abigail J.; Schubert, Peter J. (IEEE, 2019)
    Space-to-earth Wireless Power Transfer (WPT) in large scale will not be allowed unless the side lobe levels (SLL) can be reduced many orders of magnitude lower than the current technology allows. In particular, high SLL ...
  • Schubert, Peter J.; Izadian, Afshin; Wheeler, J. W. (Juniper Publishers, 2019)
    Pumped Storage Hydro (PSH) is geographically limited but can expand greatly if abandoned subsurface coal mines are leveraged for the lower reservoir. Such lands are already permitted, generally less desirable, and found ...
  • Schubert, Peter J. (Juniper Publishers, 2019)
    Thorium on the lunar surface can be transmuted into fissile uranium suitable for a controlled chain reaction to provide heat. Thorium is fertile, requiring bombardment by neutrons to become a suitable nuclear fuel. Oxides ...
  • Vance, David; Razban, Ali; Schubert, Peter J.; Weissbach, Robert (2019-05)
    A simulation tool was developed through MATLAB for comparing Centralized Energy Sharing (CES) and Interconnected Energy Sharing (IES) operating strategies with a standard Stand-Alone Photovoltaic System (SAPV). The tool ...
  • Lee, John J.; Souryal, Youssef; Tam, Darren; Kim, Dongsoo; Kang, Kyubyung; Koo, Dan D. (BEIESP, 2019)
    LoRaWAN technology has been here for several years as one of LPWAN technologies. It consists of various components such as end nodes, a gateway, a network server, and an application server at the minimum. The servers have ...
  • He, Yuhang; Pan, Ziyu; Li, Lingxi; Shan, Yunxiao; Cao, Dongpu; Chen, Long (IEEE, 2019-05)
    Vehicle detection from short-range aerial image faces challenges including vehicle blocking, irrelevant object interference, motion blurring, color variation etc., leading to the difficulty to achieve high detection accuracy ...
  • Sharma, Arush; Kim, Dongsoo S. (Springer, 2019)
    This paper discusses about developing a routing protocol for mobile ad-hoc networks in a bio-inspired manner. Algorithms inspired by collective behavior of social insect colonies, bird flocking, honey bee dancing, etc., ...
  • Han, Shuo; Lee, Soonam; Fu, Chichen; Salama, Paul; Dunn, Kenneth W.; Delp, Edward J. (SPIE, 2019-03)
    Microscopy image analysis can provide substantial information for clinical study and understanding of biological structures. Two-photon microscopy is a type of fluorescence microscopy that can image deep into tissue with ...
  • Ives, Robert W.; Bishop, Daniel A.; Du, Yingzi; Belcher, Craig (SpringerOpen, 2010-04-26)
    Iris recognition for human identification is one of the most accurate biometrics, and its employment is expanding globally. The use of portable iris systems, particularly in law enforcement applications, is growing. In ...
  • Chang, Chein-I; Jiao, Xiaoli; Wu, Chao-Cheng; Du, Yingzi; Chang, Mann-Li (SpringerOpen, 2010-04-08)
    One of great challenges in unsupervised hyperspectral target analysis is how to obtain desired knowledge in an unsupervised means directly from the data for image analysis. This paper provides a review of unsupervised ...
