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

Design And Analysis Of a Lift Assist Walker

ABSTRACT

Walkers provided stability to the elderly but cannot assist a person from sitting to standing. The objective of this project is to present the design and analysis of a lift assist walker. This report discusses the design and analysis of a collapsible lift assist walker Continue reading

Multicore, Multithreaded, Phase-synchronous Fm Sound Synthesizer

ABSTRACT

This project implements a phase-synchronous FM synthesis algorithm in hardware. Envelope and low frequency oscillator modulation of oscillator parameters is implemented. The microcontroller the system is based on, the XMOS XS1-G4, allows for Continue reading

Robust Unconstrained Face Detection and Lip Localization Algorithm Using Gabor Filters

ABSTRACT

Automatic speech recognition (ASR) is a well-researched field of study aimed at augmenting the man-machine interface through interpretation of the spoken word. From in-car voice recognition systems to automated telephone directories, automatic Continue reading

Scaled Synthetic Aperture Radar System Development

ABSTRACT

Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) systems generate two dimensional images of a target area using RF energy as opposed to light waves used by cameras. When cloud cover or other optical obstructions prevent camera imaging over a target area, SAR Continue reading

Concatenative Synthesis for Novel Timbral Creation

ABSTRACT

Modern day musicians rely on a variety of instruments for musical expression. Tones produced from electronic instruments have become almost as commonplace as those produced by traditional ones as evidenced by the plethora of artists who can be Continue reading
