Enhanced Peripheral Detection Test-I (EPDT-I) Enhanced Peripheral Detection Test-II (EPDT-II)
Wayne State University researchers have teamed up with the Toyota Technical Center, a division of Toyota Motor Engineering & Manufacturing North America, Inc. (TEMA), to work on projects for TEMA's safety research center -- the Collaborative Safety Research Center (CSRC). One technology under development is a software program related to driver ...

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 ...

New Vehicle Roof Interior Design Concepts for Occupant Neck Protection During Rollover Crashes
Researchers at the Bioengineering Center at WSU have developed an interior roof design that reduces the coefficient of friction (COF) between the head and the roof or reduces the COF between the padding and its supporting structure. Rollover crashes are the most hazardous crashes to the human cervical spine. It has been reported that the neck is th...

Dynamic Bandwidth Allocation Algorithm for Automated Video Surveillance Systems
Technology Overview Wayne State researchers have addressed the scalability-cost and power consumption problems of large-scale surveillance systems by developing an optimal bandwidth allocation algorithm, which controls the transfer rates of various video sources. With dynamic bandwidth allocation, the surveillance coverage can be widened as m...

3D Soundscaping
Researchers at WSU have developed a 3D Soundscaping technology that enables one to take sound measurements to a new level by locating sound sources, visualize their resultant sound pressure fields in 3D space. In traditional sound sensing applications, sound is measured using microphones and sound pressure levels and spectra are measured at survey ...
