A Practical Framework to Study Low-Power Scheduling Algorithms on Real-Time and Embedded Systems (Computer Project)

ABSTRACT

With the advanced technology used to design VLSI (Very Large Scale Integration) circuits, low-power and energy-efficiency have played important roles for hardware and software implementation. Real-time scheduling is one of the fields that has attracted 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

A General-Purpose Graphics Processing Unit (GPGPU)-Accelerated Robotic Controller Using a Low Power Mobile Platform (Electrical/Electronics Project)

ABSTRACT

Robotic controllers have to execute various complex independent tasks repeatedly. Massive processing power is required by the motion controllers to compute the solution of these computationally intensive algorithms. General-purpose graphics processing Continue reading

Resource Management in Heterogeneous Wireless Sensor Networks (Electrical/Electronics Project)

ABSTRACT

In heterogeneous wireless sensor networks (HWSNs) such as HPWREN, the sensed data needs to be routed through multiple hops before reaching the main high-bandwidth data links. The routing is done by battery-powered nodes using license free radios 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

Improving the performance of distributed simulations of wireless sensor networks (Computer Project)

ABSTRACT

Simulations are key to the design, implementation, and evaluation of wireless sensor networks (WSNs) and their applications. To meet the demands for high simulation fidelity and speed, distributed simulation techniques are increasingly being used 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

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
