This projects aims to develop design automation in product development. Design automation causes increase in Continue reading
Automation in manufacturing has come far by using industrial robots. However, industrial robots require tremendous efforts in static calibration due to their lack of senses. Force and vision are the most useful sensing capabilities for a Continue reading
The development of an efficient and cost-effective solution to solve a complex problem (e.g., dynamic detection of toxic gases) is an important research issue in the industrial applications of the Internet of Things (IoT). An industrial intelligent Continue reading
Internet of Things (IoT) is a technology that connects all things and the Internet in smart spaces. By implementations of intelligence with sensing devices, IoT has been widely applied to different fields, such as smart homes, the application Continue reading
This thesis is part of the SOCRADES project, a European research and advanced development project with the primary objective to develop a design, execution and management platform for next-generation Continue reading
Recently, there has been a growing interest in the potential use of Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) in many applications such as smart environments, disaster management, combat field reconnaissance, and security surveillance. Therefore, to realize their potential, there is a need of an architecture that facilities the deployment of a network that is optimized in terms of energy, query and network configuration.
This paper focuses on developing agent-based peer-to-peer layered system architecture for Continue reading
