Automated Mounting of Pole-Shoe Wedges in Linear Wave Power Generators—Using Industrial Robotics and Proximity Sensors (Electrical/Electronics Project)

ABSTRACT

A system for automatic mounting of high tolerance wedges inside a wave power linear generator is proposed. As for any renewable energy concept utilising numerous smaller generation units, minimising the production cost per unit is vital for commercialization. Continue reading

The Thorvald II Agricultural Robotic System (Electrical/Electronics Project)

ABSTRACT

This paper presents a novel and modular approach to agricultural robots. Food production is highly diverse in several aspects. Even farms that grow the same crops may differ in topology, infrastructure, production method, and so on. Modular robots help us adapt Continue reading

Mini-UAV based Sensory System for Measuring Environmental Variables in Greenhouses (Electrical/Electronics Project)

ABSTRACT

An Android based Monitoring and Alarm System for Patients with Chronic Obtrusive Disease (Electronics/Computer Project)

Consistent monitoring of vital health parameters is an important issue in the medical industry. With recent technologies we are able to carry out remote monitoring of physiological parameters in patients. This allows communication between a patient and medical personnel using Continue reading

On the Impact of Building Attenuation Models in VANET Simulations of Urban Scenarios (Electrical/Electronics Project)

ABSTRACT

Buildings are important elements of cities for VANETs, since these obstacles may attenuate communications between vehicles. Consequently, the impact of buildings has to be considered as part of the attenuation model in VANET simulations of urban Continue reading

Using a Random Secret Pre-Distribution Scheme to Implement Message Authentication in VANETs (Electrical/Electronics Project)

ABSTRACT

In recent years, the development of the Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) has increased the popularity of vehicular ad hoc networks (VANET). A VANET is designed to enable vehicles to exchange information a bout traffic or vehicle conditions Continue reading

SVANET: A Smart Vehicular Ad Hoc Network for Efficient Data Transmission with Wireless Sensors (Electrical/Electronics Project)

ABSTRACT

Wireless sensors can sense any event, such as accidents, as well as icy roads, and can forward the rescue/warning messages through intermediate vehicles for any necessary help. In this paper, we propose a smart vehicular ad hoc network (SVANET) architecture Continue reading

IEEE 802.15.4 Frame Aggregation Enhancement to Provide High Performance in Life-Critical Patient Monitoring Systems (Electrical/Electronics Project)

ABSTRACT

In wireless body area sensor networks (WBASNs), Quality of Service (QoS) provision for patient monitoring systems in terms of time-critical deadlines, high throughput and energy efficiency is a challenging task. The periodic data from these systems generates Continue reading
