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...

Recently, wireless sensor networks (WSNs) are becoming vital to a wide range of application domains, from precision agriculture and smart buildings to health systems and monitoring of humans, animals, crowds and robots. In particular, there is an increasing number of sensor devices that are worn by persons who interact with them on a daily basis...

In recent years, there is an increasing interest in the scientific community for development of algorithms targeting large-scale networks. In addition to their sheer size, these networks also exhibit various topology dynamics -- nodes join and exit at high rates (churn), are mobile and are not always reliable. Such extreme properties make...

In recent years the study of complex systems gained prominence. Since it is usually difficult to use classical mathematic models to understand these systems, scientists and engineers have to resort to simulations. Currently programming languages like CUDA C and OpenCL are available to run large scale simulations on a GPU architecture....

Wireless sensor and actuator networks (WSANs) suffer from interference making them unfeasible for actuators that require reliability. This asks for an IEEE 802.15.4 behavior analysis for building automation actuators and a robust WSAN solution. This thesis uses the IEEE 802.15.4 based JenNet communication stack for experiments to define, measure...

At Mechatronics in Medicine (MiM) Laboratory of Imperial College London, a neurosurgical steerable flexible probe ( STING) that is used to access deep brain lesions through curved trajectories is currently being developed. The focus of my research project is mainly on trajectory planning of the flexible probe i.e. investigation on how to...

With the release of RGBD-cameras (cameras that provide both RGB as well as depth information) researchers have started evaluating how these devices can be used in fields of localization, mapping and ubiquitous computing. Intel Seattle Research proposed an indoor mapping algorithm making use of such a camera. The algorithm itself is vulnerable to...

A compiler translates one representation of a software program into another. Beside translation compilers often have other tasks such as optimizating the result and warning the programmer for mistakes. Internally a compiler uses an Intermediate Representation (IR) for analysis and manipulation of the program at hand. Data dependencies in most...

Field biologists and ecologists have started to open a new avenue of inquiry at greater spatial and temporal resolution, allowing them to “observe the unobservable” through the use of wireless sensor networks. Study of birds has helped to develop fundamental knowledge of bird behavior, foraging pattern and migration. The acquired knowledge of...

Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) are ad-hoc wireless networks of small form-factor embedded nodes with limited memory, processing, and energy resources. Certain applications, like security and art monitoring,require reliable data transport. Current work for WSNs only provides stochastic reliability or guaranteed reliability for bulk transfer....

Localization has an import role in wireless sensor networks, as it adds context to gathered data. The goal of this thesis is to create an application that determines the location of a mobile sensor node in an indoor environment. A secondary goal is to get practical experience with indoor localization. Previously, in a literature review, we...

Model-based diagnosis is a technique where a model of a system is combined with observations from that system, to generate diagnoses for failures of the system. This thesis looks at how model-based diagnosis can be applied to wireless sensor networks (WSNs). WSNs are ad-hoc wireless networks of small form-factor, embedded nodes with limited...

Wireless sensor networks are being deployed extensively to collect sensory data in various environments under different conditions. A wireless sensor network consists of multiple nodes, each with the ability to communicate using radio waves. The characteristics of the radio link between nodes are largely influenced by their environment. For...

A wireless sensor network is an embedded computer network formed by small cheap devices, prone to errors. Communication in such a network in a single-hop range is provided by a Medium Access Control (MAC) Protocol. Chess has developed one such a MAC protocol, Gossip-MAC (G-MAC), specifically designed to service gossiping-based traffic. G-MAC was...
