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...

More and more devices are gaining some form of smartness either by sensing their environment on their own or by communication. An example of this is Smart Lighting, a field in which Chess Wise is active for over 6 years. By adding sensors and communication lighting can be controlled more efficiently. For example motion sensors to turn off...

The e-sport of drone-racing involves human pilots to race against time. Recently, drone races have also gone fully-autonomous. As a result, these agile robotic platforms not only pose challenges of flying fast to the participating pilots but also create challenges for the flight control computers. As a result, the concept of autonomous drone...

An Indoor Positioning System (IPS) is being developed at TOPIC Embed- ded Systems to track equipment in hospitals. The system should prevent the loss of equipment en make procedures more efficient. The IPS will con- sist of anchors and tags. Anchors are the radios that form an infrastructure in the building to localise tags that are placed on...

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 off-side rule is the most complicated rule in soccer. Today, off-sides are determined with the help of referees running on the sides of the field or with the help of cameras. However, for lower league games the installation of a camera based system is very expensive. <br/><br/>This work proposes a sensor based system that can be worn by...

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...

A robot swarm of zebros (Dutch: ZEs Benige RObots) is being developed at the TU Delft, with the purpose of forming a large self-deploying sensor network that survey remote locations without the need for any pre-existing infrastructure, or be used for evaluating swarming algorithms in the field. Towards this goal, zebros need to be able to...

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...

Miniaturization and cost reduction of hardware components have created a trend in the space industry where the traditional centralized computer is being replaced by distributed computer architecture. However, this trend comes with a cost: the on-board software complexity of the space missions has increased. The complexity has origins in the...

Fast development of tracking devices has made trajectory outlier detection(TOD) possible and meaningful. Given a set of trajectories T, a TOD algorithm outputs a subset of T, of which trajectories are different from mostof the other trajectories in some aspect(s). These trajectories, namely outliers, can indicate important or interesting...

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...

Kite Power Systems present technological advantages over traditional windmills. In this work, the design of a dual wireless link for kite applications requiring high reliability and low delays is presented. The link provides realtime data exchange between the system components that allows researchers to run closed-loop controllers, and to...
