A New Cellular Architecture for Information Retrieval from Sensor Networks through Embedded Service and Security Protocols

ABSTRACT

Substantial changes have occurred in the Information Technology (IT) sectors and with these changes, the demand for remote access to field sensor information has increased. This allows visualization, monitoring, and control through various electronic Continue reading

Smart Coat with a Fully-Embedded Textile Antenna for IoT Applications

ABSTRACT

The Internet of Things (IoT) scenario is strongly related with the advance of the development of wireless sensor networks (WSN) and radio frequency identification (RFID) systems. Additionally, in the WSN context, for a continuous feed, the integration Continue reading

Simulation of Attacks for Security in Wireless Sensor Network

ABSTRACT

The increasing complexity and low-power constraints of current Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) require efficient methodologies for network simulation and embedded software performance analysis of nodes. In addition, security is also a very Continue reading

Dependence-based Source Level Tracing and Replay for Net worked Embedded Systems

ABSTRACT

Error detection and diagnosis for networked embedded systems remain challenging and tedious due to issues such as a large number of computing entities, hardware resource constraints, and non-deterministic behaviors. The run-time checking is often Continue reading

HexaMob—A Hybrid Modular Robotic Design for Implementing Biomimetic Structures

ABSTRACT

Modular robots are capable of forming primitive shapes such as lattice and chain structures with the additional flexibility of distributed sensing. The biomimetic structures developed using such modular units provides ease of replacement and reconfiguration Continue reading

A Multimodal Perception Framework for Users Emotional State Assessment in Social Robotics

ABSTRACT

In this work, we present an unobtrusive and non-invasive perception framework based on the synergy between two main acquisition systems: the Touch-Me Pad, consisting of two electronic patches for physiological signal extraction and processing; and the Continue reading

GADEN: A 3D Gas Dispersion Simulator for Mobile Robot Olfaction in Realistic Environments

ABSTRACT

This work presents a simulation framework developed under the widely used Robot Operating System (ROS) to enable the validation of robotics systems and gas sensing algorithms under realistic environments. The framework is rooted in the principles Continue reading

A Probabilistic Approach to RFID-based Localization for Human-Robot Interaction in Social Robotics

ABSTRACT

This paper describes a novel strategy to Radio-Frequency Identification (RFID) tag detection for human–robot interaction (HRI) purposes. The anisotropic detection pattern of the RFID reader antenna is combined with a probabilistic algorithm to obtain Continue reading

Cloud-Enhanced Robotic System for Smart City Crowd Control

ABSTRACT

Cloud robotics in smart cities is an emerging paradigm that enables autonomous robotic agents to communicate and collaborate with a cloud computing infrastructure. It complements the Internet of Things (IoT) by creating an expanded network Continue reading

Multi-Robot Cluster Control

ABSTRACT

Robotic systems, when used in real world situations, often have many control modes that need to be switched between in real time. These control modes may be addressing the robots in many different ways and may be executing in different locations. Continue reading
