The American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA)’s Intelligent Systems Technical Committee (ISTC) announced that UC CEAS associate professor, Kelly Cohen, PhD, was elected to be the Technical Committee’s new Chair.
‒ “Being elected as the Chair tells me that my professional colleagues wish to grant me the honor and authority to lead them in the coming years. With this position comes great responsibility, as I need to perform in conjunction to all of my regular duties at UC, and I will do so whole-heartedly,” vows Cohen.
Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine recently announced the formation of an advisory group tasked with creating a model law enforcement policy for the use of unmanned aircraft systems (UAS). Among the prestigious UAS subject matter experts to serve and advise on the committee is University of Cincinnati (UC) College of Engineering and Applied Science (CEAS) aerospace engineering professor Kelly Cohen, PhD.
‒ "All of us must be mindful that the use of drones for law enforcement purposes – however legitimate and justified – is still relatively uncharted territory," said Attorney General DeWine. "Citizens may have some understandable reservations about law enforcement's use of new technology like this, and this group will examine those issues."
UC Aerospace Dept. Professor Kelly Cohen and Graduate student Tim Arnett win 3 year funding to develop a validation and verification based approcah to test Genetic-fuzzy brand of AI.
How do you surprise a drone that can revise its strategy hundreds of times in an eyeblink?
Congratulations to our department Professor, Dr. Kelly Cohen, for his recent University of Cincinnati Award for Excellence in Teaching.
‒ He researches new material, makes it accessible and interesting to students and makes it easy for students to succeed, if they work hard. His courses are demanding,” says former PhD student Elad Kivelevitch. “But the results of his courses are amazing.”
Can Drones Save Lives? The Sky’s the Limit
UAV Master Lab workshop on Aug. 10, 2016 demonstrates advantages of using unmanned aerial vehicles in emergencies
Aerospace engineering student Alex Walker buys timeslot to test his thesis work, Fuzzy Logic Attitude Control of a Magnetically Actuated CubeSat, in space on the ArduSat satellite. This groundbreaking endeavor is a first for UC.
Dr. Manish Kumar featured in 50-in-5 Faculty for his research titled " Generic Clustering Approach to Track-to-Track Correlation for Multisensor-Multitarget Environments"
‒ This paper shows that near-optimal results can be achieved in real-time by decomposing the problem space by fuzzy c-means clustering, then exploiting the partition matrix to assist in cluster element modifications. Furthermore, the paper explores the correct number of clusters to utilize when the true number of targets in the environment is unknown
Three UC aerospace students will present “Surveillance for Intelligent Emergency Response Robotic Aircraft (SIERRA)” on Feb. 28 at the National Council of Space Grant Directors’ Meeting. For the very first time, NASA will be streaming these presentations “live” online.
Researchers at the University of Cincinnati’s College of Engineering and Applied Science are using artificial intelligence, called fuzzy logic, to get drones to navigate and land themselves on moving platforms. This holds promise for commercial uses such as delivering packages.
Upon special request, Nick Ernest, UC-CEAS aerospace engineering PhD student, presented his trailblazing research on “Genetic Fuzzy Swarming UAV Air Operations” at the SAE 2014 Aerospace Systems and Technology Conference (ASTC) on September 23rd and 24th in Cincinnati, OH.
‒ He reflects, “I’d like to thank both Dr. Kelly Cohen for his guidance and support, and Dr. Corey Schumacher (AFRL and DAGSI program manager) as well as DAGSI for giving me the opportunity to perform this research.
New artificial intelligence beats tactical experts in combat simulation:
Artificial intelligence recently won out during simulated aerial combat against U.S. expert tacticians. Importantly, it did so using no more than the processing power available in a tiny, affordable computer (Raspberry Pi) that retails for as little as $35.
‒ The tools used to create ALPHA as well as the ALPHA project have been developed by Psibernetix, Inc., recently founded by UC College of Engineering and Applied Science 2015 doctoral graduate Nick Ernest, now president and CEO of the firm; as well as David Carroll, programming lead, Psibernetix, Inc.; with supporting technologies and research from Gene Lee; Kelly Cohen, UC aerospace professor; Tim Arnett, UC aerospace doctoral student; and Air Force Research Laboratory sponsors.
