Intra-Minute Cloud Passing Forecasting based on a Low Cost IoT Sensor—A Solution for Smoothing the Output Power of PV Power Plants


Clouds moving at a high speed in front of the Sun can cause step changes in the output power of photovoltaic (PV) power plants, which can lead to voltage fluctuations and stability problems in the connected electricity networks. These effects can be Continue reading

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


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

Towards the Internet of Smart Trains: A Review on Industrial IoT-Connected Railways


Nowadays, the railway industry is in a position where it is able to exploit the opportunities created by the IIoT (Industrial Internet of Things) and enabling communication technologies under the paradigm of Internet of Trains. This review details the Continue reading

Further Cost Reduction of Battery Manufacturing


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

Evaluation and Implementation of Neural Brain Activity Detection Methods for FMRI


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

Compensating for Respiratory Artifacts in Blood Pressure Waveforms


Cardiac catheterization has for a long time been a valuable way to evaluate the hemodynamics of a patient. One of the benefits is that the entire blood pressure waveform can be recorded and visualized to the cardiologist. These measurements are Continue reading

Classification of Ground Objects Using Laser Radar Data

Accurate 3D models of natural environments are important for many modelling and simulation applications, for both civilian and military purposes. When building 3D models from high resolution data acquired by Continue reading
