Publish-subscribe based middleware for heterogeneous critical infrastructure systems communication.
Critical Infrastructures (CIs) are physical assets and organizations responsible for the production and distribution of society’s vital goods and services. The increasing interconnection of CIs has resulted in interdependencies ...
Multi-antenna relay network beamforming design for multiuser peer-to-peer communications.
In this work, we consider a multi-user peer-to-peer relay network with multiple multiantenna relays which employ amplify-and-forward relaying protocol. Assuming distributed relay beamforming strategy, we investigate the ...
Design and implementation process for controls integration using CAN bus on a full function electric vehicle conversion
From the electrical engineering perspective, this thesis addresses the design and implementation of the conversion process from a hybrid electric to a full function electric vehicle (FFEV). The architecture selection process ...
Micro-differential evolution: diversity enhancement and comparative study.
Evolutionary algorithms (EAs), such as the differential evolution (DE) algorithm, suffer from high computational time due to large population size and nature of evaluation, to mention two major reasons. The micro-EAs employ ...
Design and analysis of an adjustable wrist rehabilitation robot.
Numerous people lose motor capabilities of their hands every year because of the Stroke. Rehabilitation robot was used to recover the movement ability based on the plasticity theory. Many robots have been proposed but most ...
Determining fuzzy link quality membership functions in wireless sensor networks
Wireless Sensor Network routing protocols rely on the estimation of the quality of the links between nodes to determine a suitable path from the data source nodes to a data-collecting node. Several link estimators have ...
Achieving high efficiency thermoelectric heating and cooling with metal foam heat exchangers
This thesis examines the development of a high efficiency heat pump system using thermoelectric (TE) and reticulated metal foam (RMF) technologies to power a vehicle`s battery thermal management system. The focus is split ...

Front underride protection devices: methods for design and testing
Improvements to highway safety are in continual demand. One of the most severe instances of vehicle collision occurs as a result of vehicle weight and sizing mismatch. The fitment of Front Underride Protection Devices ...
Development of a PSA-based safety assessment and management framework for nuclear-based hydrogen generation system.
The nuclear-based Cooper-Chloride (Cu-Cl) thermochemical cycle a promising method for future large-scale hydrogen generation. The nuclear-based hydrogen generation leads to new challenge for system safety due to the ...
