While multiprocessor platforms have been widely adopted by the embedded systems industry in the past couple of years, there are still fundamental challenges about their timing predictability for applications with real-time timing constraints. The common-off-the-shelf (COTS) multiprocessor platforms typically use complex hardware components,...

Large cities in the Netherlands, like Rotterdam, have hundreds of playgrounds, but local governments have little information on how children and adults use them. Usage data can help create playgrounds that better fit with the residents' needs by identifying what elements of a playground are the most popular, and which do not get used. The AMS...

Schistosomiasis is a neglected tropical disease (NTD) that affects around a quarter-billion people worldwide. Most of the infected people live in tropical regions, especially in sub-Saharan Africa, where there is limited access to diagnostic and other relevant medical facilities. The current reference standard diagnostic procedure - conventional...

As software security expert Bruce Schneier argues, the pervasive vulnerability of embedded systems today is structurally similar to the security crisis of PCs in the mid-1990s—only much worse. Embedded devices are ideal malware targets for several reasons. Firstly, Internet-connected devices are inherently more exposed to remote exploitation....

The main obstacles to achieve truly ubiquitous sensing are (i) the limitations of battery technology - batteries are short-lived, hazardous, bulky, and costly - and (ii) the unpredictability of ambient power. The latter causes sensors to operate intermittently, violating the availability requirements of many real-world applications. In this...

Nowadays, the reliability has become one of the main issues for safety-critical embedded systems, like automotive, aerospace and avionic. In an embedded system, the full system stack usually includes, between the hardware layer and the software/application layer, a middle layer composed by the Operating System (OS) and the middleware. Most of...

Energy-harvesting devices have enabled Internet of Things applications that were impossible before. Power failures are the norm for these battery-less devices, imposing a challenge to maintain a continued notion of time on these energy restricted devices. To address this challenge we introduce a novel time measurement architecture for energy...

Underwater robots are widely used in various operations below the surface of the sea. In many of these operations the precise localization and positioning is quite important, especially in cases that the robot must navigate between man-made installations. Although underwater vehicles can carry a number of different sensors, many of them can not...

Wireless sensor networks play a vital role in major technological developments. The success of such networks depend on the quality and reliability of data acquisition. Despite a lot of research involving network clock synchronization, the area of synchronous sampling has not been dealt in much detail. This thesis aims at studying and...

Visual perception is a pillar of human life. Visual impairment, therefore, has a severe impact on the quality of life. The Bioelectronic Interface to Sensory Cortex (BISC) project is aimed at building a system capable of both recording and stimulating neurons in order to remedy visual impairment. The proposed BISC system consists of three...

RFID technology is slowly replacing traditional bar codes as a way to identify and track objects and individuals. However, consumer-oriented market penetration has been limited as dedicated RFID readers carry a high start-up cost. Furthermore, interactions with individual tags require special-purpose RFID readers. We present a novel RFID tag...

Locating people inside buildings is still an unsolved problem. There is a lot<br/>of research going on in this field and many different solutions using different<br/>techniques have been proposed. However, there is no widely accepted indoor<br/>localization solution like how GPS is for outdoor localization due to less accuracy, higher hardware...

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...

Current hospital protocols dictate patients be turned at least every three hours in the effort of preventing pressure ulcers. To reduce the workload of nurses, Momo Medical has created an embedded sensing device to track the patient's posture and notify nurses when it is time to turn them. The challenge presented and the focus of this thesis is...

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...

Both quadcopter Micro Aerial Vehicles (MAVs) and Flapping Wing MAVs (FWMAVs) are constrained in Size, Weight and Processing power (SWaP) in order to achieve flight tasks that include attitude and velocity stabilisation, as well as obstacle avoidance. <br/>Conventional sensory and control approaches, such as those relying on inertial, visual and...

ECG signals captured almost always have motion artefact noise. This noise arises due to relative motion between the ECG electrode and skin. To remove this noise a reference signal is required that correlates to the noise. This thesis presents the design and test results of a prototype system that incorporates various motion sensors into an ECG...

The TU Delft ZEs-Benige RObot (Zebro) project is presented with the opportunity to bring the Zebro concept to the surface of our moon. To maximise the probability of success, the Locomotion Sub-System (LSS) software of Lunar Zebro is developed using a novel model-driven design tool called Dezyne. Dezyne uses a proprietary language to describe...

Presently, phasor measurement units (PMUs) are the most accurate and advanced time-synchronized technology. PMUs are the main element of the Wide-Area Monitoring, Protection and Control System, the concept that provides an estimate of the actual condition of the system, allowing operators to run online simulations and determine the possibility...
