Investigating Present and Future Interactions Between Radio Frequency Identification, Additive Manufacturing and Supply Chain Management

ABSTRACT

A screening experiment was paired with research observing the past, present and futures of additive manufacturing (a.k.a. rapid prototyping, 3D printing), radio frequency identification, and supply chain management. The experiment tested different Continue reading

Advanced Wireless Communications using Large Numbers of Transmit Antennas and Receive Nodes

ABSTRACT

The concept of deploying a large number of antennas at the base station, often called massive multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO), has drawn considerable interest because of its potential ability to revolutionize current wireless communication Continue reading

Low Power Real-Time Video and Audio Embedded System Design for Naturalistic Bicycle Study

ABSTRACT

According to NHTSA Traffic Safety Facts, bicyclist deaths and injuries in 2013 are recorded as 732 and 48,000, respectively. In the State of Florida the safety of bicyclists is of particular concern as the bicycle fatality rates are nearly triple the Continue reading

Privacy in Cooperative Distributed Systems: Modeling and Protection Framework

ABSTRACT

A new form of computation is emerging rapidly with cloud computing, mobile computing, wearable computing and the Internet-of-Things. All can be characterized as a class of “Cooperative Distributed Systems” (CDS) in open environment. A major Continue reading

Energy Harvesting and Storage: The Catalyst to the Power Constraint for Leveraging Internet of Things (IoT) on Trains

ABSTRACT

The success of Wireless Sensor Networks is heavily constrained by its reliance on storage technology like batteries, which are a finite resource. Whilst the number of transistors in an IC doubles every 18 months, the energy density of batteries Continue reading
