Dynamic Involvement of Real World Objects in the IoT: A Consensus-based Cooperation Approach

ABSTRACT

A significant role in the Internet of Things (IoT) will be taken by mobile and low-cost unstable devices, which autonomously self-organize and introduce highly dynamic and heterogeneous scenarios for the deployment of distributed applications. Continue reading

Is the Internet-of-Things a Burden or a Leverage for the Human Condition?

ABSTRACT

The very common Internet citizen has a very restricted autonomous capacity to move through the network which is becoming the everst retching milieu where our lives take place. At the same time, the capacity to manage relevant information from Continue reading

Further Cost Reduction of Battery Manufacturing

ABSTRACT

The demand for batteries for energy storage is growing with the rapid increase in photovoltaics (PV) and wind energy installation as well as electric vehicle (EV), hybrid electric vehicle (HEV) and plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV). Continue reading

A New DC-DC Converter Technology Suitable to Support Grid Connection of Wave Power Energy Converter

The purpose of this work is to design, build and test a DC-DC converter, which will later be used as a necessary part of the grid connection of a wave energy converter.The project also includes a small part to 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

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

Evaluation and Implementation of Neural Brain Activity Detection Methods for FMRI

ABSTRACT

Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) is a neuroimaging technique used to study brain functionality to enhance our understanding of the brain. This technique is based on MRI, a painless, noninvasive image acquisition method without 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
