Cross-layer Optimization Protocols in Ad-hoc Networks: Analysis and Practical Implementation of Transport and Network Layers (Electronics Project)

Ad-hoc wireless networks use multi-hop transmissions to communicate, without exploiting any infrastructure. Logical links create unreliable connections between nodes: the capacity of the channel can unpredictably change due to the Continue reading

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


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)


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

Augmented Robotics Dialog System for Enhancing Human–Robot Interaction (Computer Project)


Augmented reality, augmented television and second screen are cutting edge technologies that provide end users extra and enhanced information related to certain events in real time. This enriched information helps users better understand such events, Continue reading

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


This paper describes the design, construction and validation of a mobile sensory platform for greenhouse monitoring. The complete system consists of a sensory system on board a small quadrotor (i.e., a four rotor mini-UAV). The goals of this system include Continue reading
