Support for Cell Broadcast as Global Emergency Alert System

Cell Broadcast (CB) is a possible technical realisation of a global emergency alert system. It is a technique used for sending short text messages to all mobile stations (MSs) in a defined geographical area. An potential effect of using CB is the increase in battery consumption of the Continue reading

Modelling and Simulation of a Power Take-off in Connection with Multiple Wave Energy Converters

The objective of this thesis is to develop a model that will integrate multiple buoys to a power take-off hub. The model will be derived using a time domain analysis and will consider the Continue reading

Study and Realisation of Nyquist Rate Filters in Voltage Inverter Switch Technique

Low-sensitivity switched capacitor filters imitating ‘R’,’L’ and ‘C’ can be built by means of capacitances, ordinary switches and voltage inverter switches (VIS). These structures carry the inherent bilinear transformation of Continue reading

Automobile Control Systems: Transition from Controller Area Networks to Ethernets

Due to concerns about the negative impacts of powering vehicles using fossil fuel and the future availability of fossil fuel, there has been an increased focus on electric vehicles. However, current electric vehicle energy efficiency is Continue reading

Physical Design of a Smart Camera with Integrated Digital Pixel Sensors Using a 0.13µm 8-Layer Metal CMOS Process

The design of cameras has historically kept imagery and computational circuitry isolated in an attempt to maximize image quality by improving pixel pitch and routing density. Although this technique has worked in creating high density arrays of Continue reading

Design on Hybrid RFID & Ultrasound Based 2D Indoor Positioning System

As the positioning technology is becoming more advanced, people’s demands increase progressively on the indoor positioning system, since Global Positioning System (GPS) already cannot meet these demands. In order to solve the problem of Continue reading

RFID Emergency System for Tumble Detection of Solitary People

RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) system is a wireless system without any kinds of mechanical or optical connection between identifying and detected objects. It consists of two basic devices: a reader and tag. Recently with the development of the Continue reading
