Geothermal energy is a relatively sustainable energy source of which the essence is to extract heat from hot subsurface rocks. Circulating fluids serve as the transport agent of heat. The contact area between the fluids and the rocks is where the relevant heat transfer occurs, i.e., where the water is heated up. In some geothermal reservoirs,...

Severe scoliosis is a deformity of the curvature of the spine, mostly occurring in children. It is currently treated by performing Halo Gravity Traction (HGT) to reduce the curvature prior to surgery. In this procedure, a Bremer halo ring is fitted around the child's head and connected to the skull with a numberof pins. During the 3-month...

Motor learning is a vital ability of the human brain in which multiple cortical areas like the primary motor cortex are involved. One way to investigate the fast motor learning brain dynamics is with use of electroencephalography (EEG). This non-invasive and mobile technique records continuous electrical activity on the brain cortex with a high...

This work introduces an architecture that is capable of reducing the number of cables coming out of an ultrasound receiver ASIC by a substantial factor without dropping the frame-rate. It employs a newly developed technique named compressive sensing to exploit the ultrasound signal redundancies in the spatial domain.
There are 32 receive...

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...
