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

A pathological tremor is an involuntary and periodic motion of a body part. The detection and quantification of a pathological tremor are essential for diagnosis and therapy. The goal of this research is to detect the frequency of the pathological tremor. Instead of detecting tremors by using a specific medical device, we propose a new...

As technology scaling enters the nanometer regime, device aging effects cause quality and reliability issues in CMOS Integrated Circuits (ICs), which in turn shorten its lifetime. Evaluating system aging through circuit simulations is very complex and time consuming. In this thesis, a framework is proposed, which allows for the evaluation of...

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...

The growth of traffic densities has increased the concentrations of air pollutants, especially in city centres. Although the natural immune system of the human body can withstand low levels of exposure to air pollutants, exposure to high levels of air pollutants can lead to adverse health effects and even death. These high exposure levels are...

Travelling through airports can be quite a stressful experience for passengers. Airlines, such as KLM, want to make the journey of their passengers through airports as comfortable as possible. This thesis proposes an indoor localization system for airlines called AirLoc. The research question was: "Which airport specific indoor localization...

In this thesis, we present Cprof+, an upgraded version of Cprof. Cprof+ is a lightweight profiling tool for Polyhedral Process Networks (PPN) that can estimate the performance of a C-program as a PPN implemented in hardware. Cprof+ improves the set of possible programs that can be successfully profiled, by increasing the performance estimation...

The tremendous growth of the Internet brings with it a massive amount of data that users are exposed to on a daily basis. Consequently, information filtering techniques like recommender systems have become increasingly important to sift through the data and find what is relevant to a particular user. A recent approach for recommender systems,...

In event-triggered control (ETC) the control task is only executed when needed to ensure performance or stability. A well known property of ETC is that it can reduce the number of control task executions while retaining similar performance. A large amount of research is focused on how ETC can be used to achieve energy savings in wireless...

Software obfuscation is widely applied to prevent reverse engineering of applications. However, to evaluate security and validate behaviour we are interested in analysis such software. In this thesis, we give an overview of available obfuscation techniques as well as methods to undo this effort through reverse engineering and deobfuscation. We...

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...

Ambient energy-harvesting technology is a promising approach to keep wireless sensor networks (WSNs) operating perennially. Depending on the harvesting source, nodes can either be active (alive) or inactive (dead) at any instant in such Energy-Harvesting WSNs (EH-WSNs). Thus, even in a static deployment of EH-WSNs, the network topology is no...
