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...

Internet of Things (IoT) solutions are increasingly being deployed for smart applications. With the rise of smart cities there is a need for low cost and long range Low Power Wide Area Network (LPWAN) technologies. LoRaWAN is an energy efficient and cheap LPWAN solution. It is rapidly being adopted all around the world. LoRaWAN however does not...

Smartphones, or more general handhelds, which are commonly used for indoor localization purposes, are not a viable option in places where people do not carry them all the time, e.g., home and office. Alternatively using wearable devices brings along limitations in regards to power supply, processing capability and availability of sensors, which...

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...

This research aims at optimizing the Electric/Electronic-Architecture of modern day vehicles. Due to the massive increase in new Advanced Driver Assistance Systems, currently implemented communication technologies are no longer sufficient to deal with the massive increase in transmitted information. Instead of the costly procedure of introducing...

Providing detailed appliance level energy consumption may lead consumers to understand their usage behavior and encourage them to optimize the energy usage. Non-intrusive load monitoring (NILM) or energy disaggregation aims to estimate appliance level energy consumption from aggregate consumption data of households. Hitherto, proposed NILM...

Embedded systems are getting into various domains of our daily life as well as in many of the highly sophisticated large systems, such as air planes, military tanks, rockets, satellites. These large systems consist of many modules which are executing umpteen number of tasks semi-independently. However, not all tasks have the same levels 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...

The techniques of wireless power transfer has been gaining increasing popularity in the recent years due to the widespread use of mobile electronic devices such as laptops, mobile phones, wearable electronics and wireless sensors. Traditionally, these devices are powered using a battery that needs to be recharged. Wireless power transfer has the...

This Msc. Thesis builds upon a work-in progress called collocal which researched room-level indoor-localization. Localization is the action of estimating the position of a certain entity on a map. For example tracking the postion of furniture and other inventory in a building over a long period of time. To localize these entities other static...

The current Dutch OV-chipkaart payment system for public transportation is based on RFID cards and requires a lot of manual actions from travellers. In this thesis, a novel automated payment system based on Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) is proposed. Energy is an important criterion for smartphone applications. Where multiple wireless connections co...

During the last years, Visible light communication (VLC), a novel technology that enables standard Light-Emitting-Diodes (LEDs) to transmit data, is gaining significant attention. In the near future, this technology could enable devices containing LEDs –such as car lights, city lights, screens and home appliances– to form their own networks. VLC...

In a modern environment users are more dependant on their ability to use their mobile phone for nearly everything. They communicate with almost any device and those devices provide nearly limitless access to for instance a watch or in new applications, a lock. Issues encountered with these devices are the almost always lack the ability to keep...

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...

Model-based testing is a technique to automatically generate test cases and oracles in order to test an implementation. A typical behavrial model used for model-based testing is a Labeled Transition System9LTS). However cre-ating the LTS models needed for testing is a complex task, and especially when data is involved the number of states and...

We can foresee a near-future scenario where a huge number of semi-intelligent devices are part of our everyday environment, our homes, the public places and the office as well. The intelligent thermostat uploads the temperature readings to an online database; the fridge sends a tweet when we are out of milk; the coffee machine texts us when the...

A fundamental problem in networked embedded systems is to know the runtime behaviour. Especially, the behaviour of self-organizing and adaptive systems is difficult to predict, because of the strong coupling with the environment. Monitoring this at runtime is difficult, because the only access is via the network. However, some properties need to...
