Design and Evaluation of a Discrete Wavelet Transform based Multi-Signal Receiver

ABSTRACT

General purpose receivers of today are designed with a broad bandwidth so that the receiver can accept a wide range of signal frequencies. These receivers usually accept one signal along with an y interference that is included. To increase the signal Continue reading

Mobility in Wireless Sensor Networks

ABSTRACT

The combination of mobility with wireless networks greatly expands the application space of both robots and distributed sensor networks; such a pervasive system can enable seamless integration between the digital and physical worlds. However, there Continue reading

Java Simulations of Embedded Control Systems

ABSTRACT

This paper introduces a new Open Source Java library suited for the simulation of embedded control systems. The library is based on the ideas and architecture of TrueTime, a toolbox of Matlab devoted to this topic, and allows Java programmers Continue reading

Detection of Breathing and Infant Sleep Apnea

ABSTRACT

Sleep apnea is a condition where people pause while breathing in their sleep; this can be of great concern for infants and premature babies. Current monitoring systems either require physical attachment to a user or may be unreliable. This project is Continue reading

Design, Characterization and Application of a Multiple Input Stethoscope Apparatus

ABSTRACT

For this project, the design, implementation, characterization, calibration and possible applications of a multiple transducer stethoscope apparatus were investigated. The multi-transducer sensor array design consists of five standard stethoscope Continue reading

Monophonic Pitch Recognition

ABSTRACT
The purpose of this project is to create a system that automatically converts monophonic music into its MIDI equivalent. Automatic pitch recognition allows for numerous commercial applications, including automatic transcription and digital storage Continue reading

Development of Electronics, Software, and Graphical User Control Interface for a Wall-climbing Robot

ABSTRACT

The objective for this project is to investigate various electrical and software means of control to support and advance the development of a novel vacuum adhesion system for a wall-climbing robot. The design and implementation of custom electronics and a Continue reading

Subwoofer Frequency Response Optimization by Means of Active Control

ABSTRACT

Most subwoofer systems have difficulties producing frequencies in the low end of the hearing spectrum due to the added power requirements and instabilities. Active controls can transform the audio signal without changing physical characteristics and Continue reading
