Unimodal and Multimodal Biometric Sensing Systems: A Review


Biometric systems are used for the verification and identification of individuals using their physiological or behavioral features. These features can be categorized into unimodal and multimodal systems, in which the former have several deficiencies that Continue reading

LiUMIMO: A MIMO Testbed for Broadband Software Defined Radio


In order to keep up with the increasing demand on speed and reliability in modern wireless systems, new standards have to be introduced. By using Multiple Input Multiple Output technology (MIMO) and Continue reading

An Event Reporting and Early-Warning Safety System based on the Internet of Things for Underground Coal Mines: A Case Study


Fatal accidents associated with underground coal mines require the implementation of high-level gas monitoring and miner’s localization approaches to promote underground safety and health. This study introduces a real-time monitoring, event-reporting and Continue reading

Cell Selection Game for Densely-Deployed Sensor and Mobile Devices In 5G Networks Integrating Heterogeneous Cells and the Internet of Things


With the rapid development of wireless networking technologies, the Internet of Things and heterogeneous cellular networks (HCNs) tend to be integrated to form a promising wireless network paradigm for 5G. Hyper-dense sensor and mobile Continue reading

Improving Energy Efficiency in CNC Machining


Although still electrically-powered and operating on the same basic principles, modern CNC milling machines are significantly different from older milling machines. [Kordonowy 2002] studied several generations of milling machines in order to compare their Continue reading

Aperture Coupled Microstrip Antenna Design and Analysis


A linearly-polarized aperture coupled patch antenna design is characterized and optimized using HFSS antenna simulation software. This thesis focuses on the aperture coupled patch antenna due to the lack of fabrication and tuning documentation Continue reading
