Guidance and Control System for Under Actuated Marine Surface Vessels
WSU researchers have developed a guidance system that yields a faster convergence rate of the ship to its desired trajectory than existing systems. The new algorithm varies the radius in the guidance algorithm exponentially as opposed to linear variations in existing schemes. This was done to prevent the system from over-reacting for small cross ...

Fuel Injector to Work as an Ionization Sensor and as an Injection Signal Detector in Electronically Controlled Fuel Injection Systems in Diesel and Direct Injection Gasoline Engines
Wayne State researchers have created an invention which uses one element in the engine, the fuel injector, to perform four tasks, injecting fuel, acting as an injection pulse detector, operating as a fuel injector malfunction detector and working as an ion sensor without modifying the fuel injector. Internal combustion engine control has become mo...
