    Some minor bodies in the solar system (i.e., comets, asteroids and planetary ejecta) are capable of performing transfers from their original location to very distant places, provided they possess sufficiently large ...
  • Self-triggered networked control systems: an experimental case study 

    Camacho Santiago, Antonio; Martí Colom, Pau; Velasco García, Manel; Lozoya, Camilo; Villa Millaruelo, Ricardo; Fuertes Armengol, José Mª; Griful Ponsati, Eulàlia (2010)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    A self-triggered controller is characterized, in general, by a non-periodic sequence of job activations. And each job execution, apart from performing sampling, control algorithm computation and actuation, calculates the ...
