Project Proposals


Project Proposal1:
Type:
R&D/ Diploma/ Master
Domain: Real-time systems, Communication protocols
Project title: CORE-TX Multi-Slave FTDMA implementation of the PARSECS system for the WIT
Description: PARSECS (Predictable ARchitecture for Sensor Communication Systems) is a real-time communcation architecture designed for modular smart sensors, particullary for the WIT intelligent node. The current implementation allows full-duplex communication between a Master board (MotherBoard) and a Slave board (PMBoard). The project aims to interconnect multiple boards within the WIT with the support of the underlying SPI physical interface. Also, the full timeslot paradigm should be implemented and tested.
Observations: Platform: a WIT prototype exists, consisting of 2 interconnected boards based on the LPC2294 microcontroller (Olimex LPC-H2294 eva-board). This will need to be extended to 3-4 boards. Available HW and SW tools: IDE and compiler (Keil uVision 3.x), debugger (uLINK2 debug tool), 32 channel logic analyzer (LA1032)
No. of students: max. 2
Status: Closed
Project Proposal2:
Type:
R&D/ Diploma/ Master
Domain: Real-time systems, Battery powered / mobile devices, Power management
Project title: CORE-TX System Power Management implementation for the WIT based on advanced DPM techniques. Integrating DPM concepts in HARETICK
Description: The WIT (Wireless Intelligent Terminal) prototype consists of 2 modules (boards): the MotherBoard and the PMBoard. PMBoard handles the charge and discharge states of the WIT's power supply (rechargeable batteries). It alo provides an array of power management parameters to the MotherBoard (current consumption for each module, battery voltage, temperature, estimated remaining operating time, etc.). Implementation of present algorithms in the field is expected (SPM and DPM), further improvements. The main idea of the project is to have the MotherBoard control and execute SPM algorithms based on data received from PMBoard and to model the various peripherals present on each module (board), at the DPM level.
Observations: Platform: a WIT prototype exists, consisting of MotherBoard(LPC2294 microcontroller) and PMBoard (LPC2138). Available HW and SW tools: IDE and compiler (Keil uVision 3.x), debugger (uLINK2 debug tool), programmable power supplies (Hameg HM-7044
