Traffic Alert and Collision Avoidance System and the Human Element

...Traffic Alert and Collision Avoidance System and the Human Element Terry D. Gilfillan Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University Abstract This paper describes the history of the Traffic Alert and Collision Avoidance System (TCAS). It will discuss the types or categories of and the operation of the system of TCAS, to include the components involved, how the system interacts with other aircraft that are equipped with TCAS, and the related warnings and/or notifications of the system. Also discussed is the human element related to the operation and interaction of TCAS. These human elements include the human senses and situational awareness. Traffic Alert and Collision Avoidance System and the Human Element Two planes collide in the skies somewhere over the Grand Canyon on 30 June 1956. Because of this collision and many others, the aviation industry came to the realization that some type of system or process had to be created to help with the prevention of these collisions. Several companies began the design of collision avoidance systems, however it wasn’t easy, as they had to overcome two specific obstacles. First, the air carrier would have to install or outfit their fleets with the new hardware for the system and that would prove to be very expensive. The second obstacle; there would still be a lot of planning and development to do before TCAS would be up and running efficiently. That being said, TCAS was still in development on 31 August 1986 when a midair...

Light Photography

...Tools To Use For Painting With Light Photography (OBEP.com) Flashlights and LED’s Flashlights and Led’s are great tools when painting with light photography. The best type of flashlight to use with light painting trick photography is Maglite. Flashlights and LED bulbs both has their advantages and disadvantages. Maglite flashlights have a warm natural yellow color because they use incandescent bulbs. LED’s on the other hand usually has a colder tone color. If one has trouble working with either of these tools, change the white balance for one’s camera to build up the temperature difference. Maglights and LED’s are the primary and novice light painting tool. Fiber Optic Adapter If one comes to a situation where one must use a small or hand sized object, one will see that using a flashlight or LED will not work appropriately. In cases such as this, one will need a fiber optic adapter for their flashlight. The adapter is a cap that fits snuggly over the bulb casing of the flashlight, with a fiber optic cable protruding out of the end. This light painting tool comes in two sizes. A seven inch version and a twenty inch version. Using the Maglite adapter combination will give one the capability to light paint small and hand sized objects with ease and utmost accuracy. Key Chain LED The next best tool to flashlights and LED’s are key chain LED’s. These little gadgets have a button on the top that can quickly turn the light on and off. It can also keep the LED...

The Collision

...The Collision It was a raining day of winter, 1999 when I was driving on a wet slippery road of i680 north going to toward work. The sides of the freeway were flooded and too many cars tend to be going the same direction as mine. It was heavy traffic and other driver’s frustration appeared; when they were swerving their cars left and right trying to make their way out of traffic. I had my radio on and the news was about a car accident on San Mateo Bridge, which already started my day off wrong from that moment. As I was counting down the miles toward my destination, driving my car on the carpool lane going 65 miles per hour which was the legal speed limit for the freeway. Cruising on the far left lane, driving a 2005 black Jeep Cherokee that had four large tires which made me higher and oversee the whole view of the freeway. The incident started when I took a quick glance over my right shoulder and saw a blue, shiny-rimmed Toyota Runner, suv spinning out of control. The car instantly took my attention; the car was at the very far right lane so at the moment I did not doubt that the driver was going to make his way towards me immediately. Because it was raining hard and the road was wet which made him to slide all the way to the far left lane. At first he hit the concrete freeway dividers suddenly, I instantly slammed my breaks until I saw smoke coming out from the tires and then blew up. He spun 180 degrees and stopped facing the incoming traffic. I look at...

... also unambiguous and dichotomous. Step 3—Design an Experiment The next step is to design an experiment to test your hypothesis. Your experiment is affected by variables. There are three kinds of variables in an experiment: independent, dependent, and controlled. The independent variable is the variable you purposely manipulate. The dependent variable is the variable that is being observed, which changes in response to the independent variable. Variables that are not changed are called controlled variables. When conducting an experiment, it must be a controlled experiment. That is, you must compare an "experimental or treatment group" with a "control group." The two groups are exactly the same except for the one variable being tested. For example, in your experiment on dissolved oxygen and trout, you may select to use two aquariums and 5 juvenile rainbow trout. The aquarium, food, light source, location of the aquarium, ambient temperature, water temperature, trout stock, trout gender, and age of trout all have to be exactly the same. However, the water in one aquarium has a dissolved oxygen level of 3 mg/l and the other has a "normal" level. The aquarium with "normal" dissolved oxygen is called the control and the aquarium with the lowered dissolved oxygen is called the treatment. The control group acts as a reference point to compare with the treatment group. If the test is properly designed and constructed, any difference between the two groups can only be due to the......

Collision of Culture

...Collision of Culture Panama is a country that has had a collision of culture. It was never really a country of its own, but an extension of Columbia. When the idea of connecting the Atlantic and Pacific Ocean together so that the cargo routes can circumvent traveling around South America, is when it became an area of name. First the French tried to create this connection and failed in the 1880’s. Again in the turn of the century the U.S. had an interest in creating this passageway and developed a treaty and proposed it to the Columbian Senate and it was denied, this in turn cause the Panamanians to rebel and the U.S. helped support them. The U.S. helped rebel the Columbian forces and they gained their independence. Although Panama got its independence when the United States backed the revolt from the Columbian senate, it is still a typical Middle American country. It has a population of 3.5 million people, seventy percent of it is mestizo and has its minorities that are made up of Amerindians, whites and blacks. The primary language is Spanish while English is spoken in many parts as well. The population is mostly in the uplands, tierra templada and tierra fria, west of the canal. Here they produce bananas, coffee, sugarcane, and seafood such as shrimp. Panama is also an entrepÔt. They store products here that come in from the Pacific and Atlantic Ocean, and prepare them for transport to South America. This has given the Panamanians infrastructure in the......

Computer Application and Microcontroller System Design for Light and Temperature Sensors Measurement Tool Module

...COMPUTER APPLICATION AND MICROCONTROLLER SYSTEM DESIGN ON TEMPERATURE AND LIGHT SENSORS MEASUREMENT TOOL MODULE Wilson Wiyatno1, Melisa Mulyadi2 Electrical Engineering Department – Faculty of Engineering Atma Jaya Catholic University of Indonesia e-mail: 1wilson.wiyatno@student.atmajaya.ac.id, 2melisa.mulyadi@atmajaya.ac.id ABSTRACT The experiment module for sensor testing in the Electronic Laboratory Electrical Engineering Department, Faculty of Engineering Atma Jaya Catholic University of Indonesia, Jakarta is not well integrated. The sensor output is not homogenous and there is no application to show the characteristic of the sensor. To solve this problem, a computer based sensors measurement tool module needs to be made. The sensor gives the output such as analog value to the microcontroller. Microcontroller receives the output with Analog to Digital Converter (ADC), then microcontroller send the digital value to computer using serial communication. The application based on C# programming language is made as user interface to the user. To know the input of the sensor, simple linear regression, a type of numeric method, is used to calculate the input of the sensor and to make the linearity between the input and the output. The testing of the results in computer show that the error rate system is small. After the input and the output have been known, the graphic can be made to show the characteristic sensor to the user...

B737 Crash

...B737 Accident There was an accident involving Boeing 737 Commercial Airliner at a major airport. Depending on the seat pitch, Boeing 737 is narrow body jet airliner which has the capacity of 85 to 215 passengers. All passengers and crew on board died due to the accident. It was reported that this Boeing 737 Commercial Airliner was 7 miles in trail of another aircraft. Not only United States Airliner are using Boeing 737 as one of their fleet family, but international airline is also using Boeing 737 as their fleet family. The current data shows that there are 2,000 Boeing 737 flying worldwide. It is uncertain what has caused this accident, but possibly the aircraft had inadvertent rudder reversal while landing. The National Transportation Safety Board hastily blamed it on the rudder design. They stated that Boeing 737 had defective rudder design. But this was first accident resulting from Boeing 737's inadvertent rudder reversal. The NTSB also suggested to ground all Boeing 737 aircraft until the problem could be sorted out. The economy will also suffer from the wrong decision NTSB and FAA made. Grounding all Boeing 737 aircraft worldwide can bring negative effects such as 30,000 workers will lose their jobs and several small operations would be lost. Low cost carriers which primary fleet family is Boeing 737 will suffer the most. They will have no aircraft to operate their daily operation. The airline market will be in chaos. The airline need to work more to fill up...

Anti-Car Napping System

...Anti-Car napping system is a combination of hardware and software components which has a feature of determining and locating the location of your car using GPS tracking system. Moreover, in case that your car is car nap the system can able to detect and accept text from the owner that can trigger the car to stop. If the car napper attempts to car nap your car just give it don’t hesitate to give it and change your life with your car. That’s why the purpose of building the system is to help you to reduce car napping and acquire again your car by determining it by the system. BLACKBUSTER is an anti car napping/carjacking device invented by a Filipino. The device have been evaluated and endorsed by Mitsubishi Motors Philippines as an after-market device that can be installed to Mitsubishi vehicles. The BLACKBUSTER has long been patronized by car owners worldwide and installed into thousands of vehicles including Toyota, Honda, Mitsubishi, Mazda, Isuzu, Ford, and others.

Intelligent Traffic Light and Pedestrian Control System

...Intelligent Traffic Control and Pedestrian Crossing System C.H.W. Jayawardane Faculty of Information Technology, University of Moratuwa, Sri Lanka Abstract - This paper proposes an intelligent traffic light and pedestrian crossing system that can be used to address traffic congestion in a four way junction. The approach is primarily focused on creating a system which dynamically responds to traffic conditions and road users. The system makes use of sensors to detect the presence of a vehicle. A number of these sensors placed accordingly are used to identify the number of vehicles in a particular lane. Based on this input, which is the vehicle line length in a lane the traffic control algorithm implemented in our system takes the necessary decisions. This algorithm determines the lane that should be given the most priority and up to what amount of time. This feature allows maximum efficiency in controlling the flow of traffic. The pedestrian crossing system uses image processing technology to identify the number of waiting pedestrians. When this number reaches a defined value they are given the chance to cross the road. Else after a maximum time limit is exceeded and the required number has not yet gathered the remaining will be given a chance to navigate safely across the road. A count down timer display is used to show the remaining time the pedestrians have. It can be illustrated that the proposed system provides a cost efficient and environmentally friendly method to...

Collision Regulations Part 1

...COLLISION REGULATIONS See First Class Sailing Cockpit Companion and RYA Day Skipper booklet. Steering and Sailing Rules Keep a proper look out. Maintain a safe speed. Determine if a risk of collision exists by taking a bearing of the other vessel. If the bearing doesn’t change after a few minutes you are on a collision course. Determine whether you are the stand on vessel (see below). If you are not the stand on vessel you should take early and ample action to avoid a collision. Ie. A bold alteration of course/speed in good time. BUT….! If the situation develops so that the collision cannot be avoided by the actions of the Give Way vessel alone, the Stand on Vessel must act to avoid collision. Ie. all vessels have a duty to avoid a collision. On the high seas: A power driven vessel gives way to a sailing vessel. Both a power driven vessel and a sailing vessel give way to a fishing vessel. All three of these gives way to vessels Restricted in Ability to Manoeuvre, vessels Not Under Command and vessels Constrained by their draft. In other cases: In a TSS a sailing vessel or a vessel under 20m LOA shall not impede a power driven vessel using the TSS - Rule 10. In a narrow channel a sailing vessel or a vessel under 20m LOA shall not impede a vessel that has to navigate within the narrow channel – Rule 9. A vessel, regardless of it’s type, when overtaking another vessel shall keep well clear. Sailing Vessels (Rule 12) A yacht on port tack gives way to a yacht on starboard......

Led Light

... performed: typically around 70% soot loading.  At this point the vehicle will enter a 'restricted performance' mode to prevent further damage.  If left the soot loading will keep rising.  At this level of soot loading a diagnostic tool must be used to force regeneration. Above around 85% soot loading regeneration can no longer be performed on the vehicle and the DPF will need removing to be cleaned or replaced. What can prevent normal regeneration taking place? * Frequent short journeys where the engine does not reach normal operating temperature * Wrong oil type - DPF equipped cars require low ash, low sulphur engine oils * A problem with the inlet, fuel or Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) system causing incomplete combustion will increase soot loading. * A warning light on or diagnostic trouble code logged in the engine management system may prevent active or catalyst regeneration * Low fuel level will prevent active regeneration taking place. As a general rule ¼ tank is required * Oil counter/service interval - exceeding the service interval may prevent regeneration * Additive tank low or empty - if the vehicle uses Eolys™ additive a low level may prevent regeneration. Expensive repairs If you continue to ignore warnings and soot loading keeps increasing then the car won’t run properly and the most likely outcome will be that you will have to get a new DPF costing at least £1000 plus labour and diagnostic time. The ash residue which remains......

Anti Lock Braking System

.... ABS: What does it mean? ABS: Means Anti Lock Braking System (though majority of Indians call it anti braking system, ABS). In simple words, ABS basically means employment of a system that avoids the brakes from locking up (locking of wheel rotation), thereby, improving the braking performance as a result. What is the use of ABS in cars? I believe almost all of you there must have faced a situation many times in your lives when driving even at a relaxed pace, you had to stomp on braking due to sudden arrival of an object in front of you or simply because of a deep pothole or speed breaker above average height (which is common in India due to lack of norms for a speed breaker height). What do you do then? Simply thrash the brake pedal with full force. But in most of the cases, the vehicles refuse to stop in time and keep skidding and/or sliding and also all of a sudden, the steering and/or handle also get so tight that you could not steer the car away from the object and eventually end up in crashing in or on a pothole or a speed breaker or hit an object. Efforts failed, result met. In worse cases, if the object was big or you were at speeds above than normal, it did also pose risk to your life. In fact most of the accidents, take place due to head on crash for which, failure in stopping power is responsible. In most of these cases, the accident could have been avoided if the car was able to be stopped just a feet or so before the point of collision. ABS or anti lock...
