UMaine and Cal State Long Beach collaborated on eliminating wires in aerospace control systems to save on weight, cost, and accuracy of guidance and navigation. The challenges addressed in this project included real-time modeling of vibration model of the vehicle using wireless sensors. Delay and noise in the control loop calls for advanced signal processing and new control techniques to provide a robust and reliable system.
Eliminating wires from aerospace control systems significantly reduces weight, while posing challenges dealing with delay and noise in sensor data.
