Enhanced Strain Measurement Range of an FBG Sensor Embedded in Seven-Wire Steel Strands (Civil Project)

ABSTRACT

FBG sensors offer many advantages, such as a lack of sensitivity to electromagnetic waves, small size, high durability, and high sensitivity. However, their maximum strain measurement range is lower than the yield strain range (about 1.0%) of steel Continue reading

A Hybrid FPGA-based System for EEG-and EMG-based Online Movement Prediction (Computer Project)

ABSTRACT

A current trend in the development of assistive devices for rehabilitation, for example exoskeletons or active orthoses, is to utilize physiological data to enhance their functionality and usability, for example by predicting the patient’s upcoming Continue reading

Eyes of Things (Electrical/Electronics Project)

ABSTRACT

Embedded systems control and monitor a great deal of our reality. While some “classic” features are intrinsically necessary, such as low power consumption, rugged operating ranges, fast response and low cost, these systems have evolved in the last few years Continue reading

Integrated Design and Implementation of Embedded Control Systems with Scilab (Computer Project)

ABSTRACT

Embedded systems are playing an increasingly import ant role in control engineering. Despite their popularity, embedded systems are generally subject to resource constraints and it is therefore difficult to build complex control systems on embedded Continue reading

Flexible, Scalable and Energy Efficient Bio-Signals Processing on the PULP Platform: A Case Study on Seizure Detection (Electrical/Electronics Project)

ABSTRACT

Ultra-low power operation and extreme energy efficiency are strong requirements for a number of high-growth application areas requiring near-sensor processing, including elaboration of biosignals. Parallel near-threshold computing is emerging as an approach Continue reading

A Scheme for the Growth of Graphene Sheets Embedded with Nanocones (Electrical/Electronics Project)

ABSTRACT

Based on the monolayer growth mode of graphene sheets (2D crystal) by chemical vapor deposition (CVD) on a Cu surface, it should be possible to grow the 2D crystal embedded with single wall carbon nanocones (SWCNC) if nano-conical pits are pre-fabricated Continue reading

An Embedded Multi-Agent Systems based Industrial Wireless Sensor Network (Electrical/Electronics Project)

ABSTRACT

With the emergence of cyber-physical systems, there has been a growing interest in network-connected devices. One of the key requirements of a cyber-physical device is the ability to sense its environment. Wireless sensor networks are a widely-accepted Continue reading

Development of Embedded EM Sensors for Estimating Tensile Forces of PSC Girder Bridges (Civil Project)

ABSTRACT

The tensile force of pre-stressed concrete (PSC) girders is the most important factor for managing the stability of PSC bridges. The tensile force is induced using pre-stressing (PS) tendons of a PSC girder. Because the PS tendons are located inside Continue reading

Embedded Implementation of VHR Satellite Image Segmentation (Electrical/Electronics Project)

ABSTRACT

Processing and analysis of Very High Resolution (VHR) satellite images provide a mass of crucial information, which can be used for urban planning, security issues or environmental monitoring. However, they are computationally expensive Continue reading

A Linked List-based Algorithm for Blob Detection on Embedded Vision-based Sensors (Electrical/Electronics Project)

ABSTRACT

Blob detection is a common task in vision-based applications. Most existing algorithms are aimed at execution on general purpose computers; while very few can be adapted to the computing restrictions present in embedded platforms. This paper focuses Continue reading
