Visible Light Communication (VLC) is becoming an important research area where Visible Light Sources such as LED, Halogen Lamps and even the sun can be used for Wireless Communication. LED-to-Camera Communication is a form of VLC, where the camera can notice intermittent stimuli changes above a certain threshold frequency (flicker fusion...

Visible Light Communication (VLC) has seen drastic improvements in recent years, one approach uses active light sources like LEDs, switching them at hight speeds to send data. Another approach uses the fundamental characteristics of liquid crystals (birefringence and thickness) to transmit data to a single pixel receiver. These characteristics...

Although the demand for wireless communication continuous to grow, the number of frequencies available in traditional data transmission is limited. Visible Light Communication (VLC) is a promising alternative communication method proven to work on high-end devices. However, large-scale adoption requires VLC to also work on everyday machines. Yet...

Monitoring and analyzing human movement is used in many fields, ranging from healthcare and industrial applications to sports analytics. To provide a football player or their coach with insight into their performance during a game, or their technical development over time, many methods are available such as camera setups and smart vests. However...

As more and more devices have become wireless, the traditional Radio Frequency (RF) spectrum has become densely populated. To relieve this pressure,<br/>communication using light, visible light communication (VLC), has been proposed by many researchers. However, not all light sources can be modulated<br/>to transmit information. Therefore, the...

Software testing is an integral part of the development of embedded systems. Among other reasons, tests are frequently used to ensure that a system meets all the specifications, which is especially important when designing systems for the medical industry. Software changes that have a detrimental impact on a real-time system's performance can...

Achieving consensus in a network is one of the most important performance bottlenecks in distributed computing. This paper takes a look at the existing protocols for achieving Byzantine Reliable Broadcast on asynchronous partially connected networks and how these protocols change to leverage the fact that some nodes have access to Trusted...

The company Kien 1 is developing Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) speakers, consisting of a subwoofer and several satellite speakers. These subwoofer and satellite speakers will have a feature named Follow Me, which when enabled from a smartphone application, will play music only in the room where the user currently is. The BLE’s signals will...

The performance of gun and rocket propellants, which consist of energetic materials, is largely determined by their geometry and composition. Con- ventional production methods limit the performance by putting constraints on both. With additive manufacturing, or 3D-printing, there are signi- cantly fewer geometry constraints and together with the...

The Internet of Things (IoT) is expected to include billions of tiny devices that collect, process, and communicate sensory data. As of now, batteries power these devices. Batteries, however, are large, expensive, and short-lived - even the rechargeable ones wear out in a few years. Therefore, they are not a sustainable powering solution. Tiny...

Tock is an embedded operating system that can run multiple concurrent, mutually distrustful processes, concurrently. Tock is written in Rust, a novel system programming language enforcing type safety at compile-time, and takes advantage of Rust's strong safety features. However, since Tock allows user-level applications to be written in any...

Traffic congestion at signalized intersections is a big economical and ecological problem. Handcrafted traffic light controllers (TLCs) are currently used to minimize the impact, but they are expensive to design and maintain and their performance degrades over time. Predictive TLCs and advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) form a potential...

The use of Light Emitting Diodes (LED) as a main source of illumination<br/>can help in significantly reducing global energy conspumtions. The LED is<br/>well suited for modulating visible light, enabling a wireless communication<br/>channel. A popular topic in Visible Light Communication (VLC) research<br/>is to push data throughput past the...

With the arrival of smart electricity meters energy consumption can be monitored continuously and displayed on external devices such as phones or tablets. As a consequence, users become more aware of their energy usage which may result in a reduction in energy consumption. Nevertheless, many countries in Europe still use an analog electricity...

Visible Light Communication has been intriguing both the industry and the academia for over a decade. However, most of the research efforts in this area only consider scenarios where the light emitted from the transmitters is constant. This is not true when Smart Lighting, a technology designed for more comfortable and energy efficient buildings...

With more and more battery-operated devices equiped with sensors, it is becoming increasingly relevant to focus not only on energy efficiency, but also on ensuring that the available energy is not spent before the battery will be recharged. In this thesis a strategy for adaptive sampling is proposed that adapts the sample rate while respecting a...

Studies have shown that fresh water is getting scarcer worldwide day by day. Most of the fresh water is being wasted on land fields for irrigation. Farmers waste so much fresh water, when watering their crops. To conserve water, measurements need to be done efficiently. However, soil moisture sensors currently available on the market are quite...

Embedded Software appears in a variaty of systems and products. The software for these systems have special requirements. Firstly, embedded software needs to be very robust as it is usually deeply tucked away and not very visible to the user. Secondly, embedded systems have dedicated hardware the software has to work on, and finally embedded...

Indoor localization is a topic that has been investigated for more than a decade. Yet, no single system exists that is widely adopted as the de facto localization standard. From a research perspective the goal is to obtain a solution that is general, simple and accurate. As the number of devices in the Internet of Things grow, a new set of...
