Face Tracking with ROS 2

November 20 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Co-sponsored by: Axiom Electronics ROS 1 uses a custom serialization format, a custom transport protocol and a custom central discovery mechanism. Maintaining custom infrastructure is expensive. To mitigate ROS 2 uses the DDS (Data Distribution Service) and RTPS (Real Time Publish Subscribe) standard protocols. To gain an understanding of ROS 2 and its capabilities Robert Adams installed it on a Raspberry Pi. To test ROS2, a face tracking robot was built out of two Raspberry Pi 3s and a laptop. Incorporating…

Talk: Off-Grid Power Systems in Developing Countries

November 27 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Summary: Approximately 1.1 billion people worldwide lack access to the electricity grid. This form of energy poverty disproportionately afflicts those living in less economically developed countries, primarily in Sub-Saharan Africa and southern Asia. Achieving universal electrification through grid extension is optimistically decades away and might never be a viable option in rural areas. Instead, many communities will rely on off-grid electricity solutions in the form of renewable energy-powered microgrids. This presentation describes the role of microgrids and other off-grid solutions…

Ferroresonance in Three-Phase Distribution Systems

November 29 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

Ferroresonance is a complex and often misunderstood electrical circuit phenomenon that can result in damaging over-voltages in electric utility distribution systems.  Resulting high voltages are periodic but are usually not sinusoidal and may erratically jump from one mode to another.  Ferroresonance can result when single-phasing occurs in three-phase high-voltage circuits, including routine operations associated with switching procedures and protective device fault clearing.  Ferroresonance is happening more often in electric utility systems due to the increasing use of high voltage underground…
