Conceptual Simulator Implementation of Flapping Wing Micro Air Vehicle Using FLAMES (Mechanical Project)

The interest for Flapping Wing Micro Air Vehicles (FWMAV) is growing. With this comes a need for future users to test and evaluate these vehicles with simulations. This study presents a first iteration of an implementation of a FWMAV in FLAMES Simulation Framework. An aerodynamic model based on the Continue reading

Performance Evaluation of Embedded Microcomputers for Avionics Applications (ECE/EEE Project)

Embedded microcomputers are used in a wide range of applications nowadays. Avionics is one of these areas and requires extra attention regarding reliability and determinism. Thus, these issues should also be born in mind in addition to performance when evaluating embedded microcomputers.

This master thesis suggests a framework for performance evaluation of two members of the PowerPC microprocessor family, namely the MPC5554 from Freescale and PPC440EPx from AMCC, and analyzes Continue reading
