    • Compressed sensing for scalable robotic tactile skins 

      Hollis, Brayden (Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Troy, NY, 2018-05)
      First, we introduce the open-source tactile skin simulator BubbleTouch for generating tactile data since current tactile skin systems are not widely available to produce data for research. BubbleTouch uses kinematic and ...
    • Contact-based state estimation and policy learning for robotic manipulation tasks 

      Li, Shuai (Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Troy, NY, 2017-08)
      In this thesis, we focus on improving the perception capability for robots and addressing the problem of combining the perception capability with action planning and execution for robotic manipulation tasks. Our proposed ...
    • Distributed interference management under low network visibility : theory and applications 

      Fadel, Maha (Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Troy, NY, 2020-08)
      Reliable communication in wireless networks currently relies on the perfect estimation of the varying state of the wireless channel at all communicating nodes. While the next generation of wireless networks promises ...
    • Elastic cloud computing for QoS-aware data processing 

      Imai, Shigeru (Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Troy, NY, 2018-05)
      First, we present two frameworks for elastic batch data processing. The first elastic batch data processing framework supports autonomous VM scaling using application-level migration. It does not require any prior knowledge ...
    • Emergency trajectory generation for fixed-wing aircraft 

      Paul, Saswata (Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Troy, NY, 2018-12)
      Loss of thrust emergencies, e.g. -- induced by bird strikes or fuel exhaustion -- give rise to the need for expeditiously generating feasible trajectories to nearby runways, in order to guide pilots. It is possible to ...
    • Empirical analysis of sparse principal component analysis 

      Mastylo, Damian Z. (Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Troy, NY, 2016-05)
      Many optimizations exist via tweaking the sparsity factor, the number of left singular vectors used, or the column subset selection method. Many combinations of these approaches are examined, and their efficacy are reported ...
    • Formal verification of decentralized coordination in autonomous multi-agent aerospace systems 

      Paul, Saswata (Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Troy, NY, 2022-05)
      As autonomous vehicular technologies such as self-driving cars and uncrewed aircraft systems (UAS) evolve to become more accessible and cost-efficient, autonomous multi-agentsystems, that comprise of such entities, will ...
    • Network design for optimal performance under consensus dynamics 

      Mackin, Erika (Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Troy, NY, 2019-08)
      In this thesis we study the problem of optimizing consensus networks through network design. The performance of each network is determined by its topology. We consider how the performance of consensus networks can be ...
    • Robust news veracity detection 

      Horne, Benjamin D. (Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Troy, NY, 2020-05)
      Second, we learn from news source behavior and relationships. In this approach, we explore content sharing behavior by both mainstream and alternative news sources. Specifically, we construct content sharing networks from ...
