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

A Vision-based Driver Nighttime Assistance and Surveillance System Based on Intelligent Image Sensing Techniques and a Heterogamous Dual-Core Embedded System Architecture (Computer Project)

ABSTRACT

This study proposes a vision-based intelligent nighttime driver assistance and surveillance system (VIDASS system) implemented by a set of embedded software components and modules, and integrates these modules to accomplish a component-based Continue reading

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

ABSTRACT

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

Wireless Power Transfer for Autonomous Wearable Neurotransmitter Sensors (Electrical/Electronics Project)

ABSTRACT

In this paper, we report a power management system for autonomous and real-time monitoring of the neurotransmitter L-glutamate (L-Glu). A low-power, low-noise, and high-gain recording module was designed to acquire signal from an implantable flexible Continue reading

An Event Reporting and Early-Warning Safety System based on the Internet of Things for Underground Coal Mines: A Case Study (Electronics/Computer Project)

ABSTRACT

Fatal accidents associated with underground coal mines require the implementation of high-level gas monitoring and miner’s localization approaches to promote underground safety and health. This study introduces a real-time monitoring, event-reporting and Continue reading

iNUIT: Internet of Things for Urban Innovation (Electrical/Electronics Project)

ABSTRACT

Internet of Things (IoT) seems a viable way to enable the Smart Cities of the future. iNUIT (Internet of Things for Urban Innovation) is a multi-year research program that aims to create an ecosystem that exploits the variety of data coming from multiple Continue reading

Virtualization of Event Sources in Wireless Sensor Networks for the Internet of Things (Electrical/Electronics Project)

ABSTRACT

Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) are generally used to collect information from the environment. The gathered data are delivered mainly to sinks or gateways that become the endpoints where applications can retrieve and process such data. Continue reading
