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


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)


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

An Embedded Sensing and Communication Platform, and a Healthcare Model for Remote Monitoring of Chronic Diseases (Electrical/Electronics Project)


This paper presents a new remote healthcare model, which, exploiting wireless biomedical sensors, an embedded local unit (gateway) for sensor data acquisition-processing-communication, and a remote e-Health service center, can be scaled Continue reading

Health Monitoring and Management Using Internet-of-things (IOT) Sensing With Cloud-based Processing: Opportunities and Challenges (Computer/Electronics Project)


Among the panoply of applications enabled by the Internet of Things (IOT), smart and connected  health care is a particularly important one. Networked sensors, either worn on the body or embedded in our living environments, make possible the gathering of rich information indicative of our physical and mental Continue reading

RFID Technology for IOT-based Personal Healthcare in Smart Spaces (Electronics/Biomedical Project)


The current evolution of the traditional medical model toward the participatory medicine can be boosted by the Internet of Things (IoT) paradigm involving sensors (environmental, wearable, and  implanted) spread inside domestic Continue reading

Indoor Navigation Using Accelerometer and Magnetometer (Electronics Project)

This project will create a navigation system based on dead reckoning using an accelerometer and a magnetometer. There have previously been several studies made on navigation with accelerometers, magnetometers (electronic compass) and gyros. With these three components it is possible to Continue reading

A Security Framework for the Internet of Things in the Future Internet Architecture (Electrical/Electronics Project)


The Internet of Things (IoT) is a recent trend that extends the boundary of the Internet to include a wide variety of computing devices. Connecting many stand-alone IoT systems through the Internet introduces many challenges, with security being Continue reading
