    Contention-Based Polling Efficiency in Broadband Wireless Networks2008Ingår i: Analytical and Stochastic Modeling Techniques and Applications: 15th International Conference, ASMTA 2008 Nicosia, Cyprus, June 4-6, 2008 Proceedings / [ed] Khalid Al-Begain, Armin Heindl, Miklós Telek, Berlin: Springer Berlin/Heidelberg, 2008, s. 295-309Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper addresses the performance of the contention-based polling techniques at the bandwidth reservation stage of IEEE 802.16 standard. A general proposition is proved, which establishes that the grouping of users in the random multiple access system does not change its capacity. Broadcast and multicast polling mechanisms are then considered, for which the throughput and the rate of the truncated binary exponential backoff algorithm are calculated for the lossy and the lossless system types, respectively. It is shown, that subject to proper optimization the performance of the aforementioned algorithm is the same for both system types. The efficiency of the symmetric user grouping is finally studied, which demonstrates that a negligible performance gain may be achieved for the cost of the increased IEEE 802.16 overhead.

    Symmetric User Grouping for Multicast and Broadcast Polling in IEEE 802.16 Networks2008Ingår i: Selected Lectures on Multiple Access and Queueing Systems: Revised Selected Papers from International Workshop on Multiple Access Communications - MACOM-2008 (16-17 June 2008, Saint-Petersburg) / [ed] Vladimir Vishnevsky, Alexey Vinel, Yevgeni Koucheryavy & Dirk Staehle, Saint-Petersburg: Saint-Petersburg State University of Aerospace Instrumentation , 2008, s. 52-62Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper we address the bandwidth reservation in IEEE 802.16 standard via multicast and broadcast polling mechanisms. It is shown that symmetric user grouping with the same QoS requirements does not change the capacity of the random multiple access system. Binary exponential backoff protocol is then investigated as it is standardized for both multicast and broadcast polling. We establish that symmetric user grouping does not essentially increase the performance of this protocol.

    Peer to Peer VoIP over IEEE 802.11 WLAN2012Självständigt arbete på avancerad nivå (masterexamen), 20 poäng / 30 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) over WLAN is one of the most important technologies in today’s world of communication. VoIP is simply a way to make phone calls through the internet because of the convergence of voice and data networks enables new applications and cost reductions. Voice over WLAN phones are already being offered to enterprises by leading vendors. Most of internet services or applications require centralized network to communicate, but with Ad-hoc networks there is no such requirement at all.

    In this report we have established a VoIP session by forming a network between Android mobile devices without using an Access point. Energy consumption is a major problem for VoIP over wireless LAN applications while using them in hand held devices. We investigated the energy consumption characteristics of our Evaluation kit during VoIP session. We further studied about new technology: “Wi-Fi Direct” which allows Wi-Fi equipped devices to share data without using wireless access points.

    Intelligent autonomous navigation for mobile robots: Spatial concept acquisition and object discrimination2005Ingår i: 2005 IEEE International Symposium on Computational Intelligence in Robotics and Automation, Proceedings, New York: IEEE Press, 2005, s. 553-557Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    An autonomous system able to construct its own navigation strategy for mobile robots is proposed. The navigation strategy is molded from navigation experiences (succeeding as the robot navigates) according to a classical reinforcement learning procedure. The autonomous system is based on modular hierarchical neural networks. Initially the navigation performance is poor (many collisions occur). Computer simulations show that after a period of learning the autonomous system generates efficient obstacle avoidance and target seeking behaviors. Experiments also offer support for concluding that the autonomous system develops a variety of object discrimination capability and of spatial concepts.

    A Simulation-Based Safety Analysis of CACC-Enabled Highway Platooning2018Doktorsavhandling, sammanläggning (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    Cooperative Intelligent Transport Systems (C-ITS) enable actors in the transport systems to interact and collaborate by exchanging information via wireless communication networks. There are several challenges to overcome before they can be implemented and deployed on public roads. Among the most important challenges are testing and evaluation in order to ensure the safety of C-ITS applications.

    This thesis focuses on testing and evaluation of C-ITS applications with regard to their safety using simulation. The main focus is on one C-ITS application, namely platooning, that is enabled by the Cooperative Adaptive Cruise Control (CACC) function. Therefore, this thesis considers two main topics: i) what should be modelled and simulated for testing and evaluation of C-ITS applications? and ii) how should CACC functions be evaluated in order to ensure safety?

    When C-ITS applications are deployed, we can expect traffic situations which consist of vehicles with different capabilities, in terms of automation and connectivity. We propose that involving human drivers in testing and evaluation is important in such mixed traffic situations. Considering important aspects of C-ITS including human drivers, we propose a simulation framework, which combines driving-, network-, and traffic simulators. The simulation framework has been validated by demonstrating several use cases in the scope of platooning. In particular, it is used to demonstrate and analyse the safety of platooning applications in cut-in situations, where a vehicle driven by a human driver cuts in between vehicles in platoon. To assess the situations, time-to-collision (TTC) and its extensions are used as safety indicators in the analyses.

    The simulation framework permits future C-ITS research in other fields such as human factors by involving human drivers in a C-ITS context. Results from the safety analyses show that cut-in situations are not always hazardous, and two factors that are the most highly correlated to the collisions are relative speed and distance between vehicles at the moment of cutting in. Moreover, we suggest that to solely rely on CACC functions is not sufficient to handle cut-in situations. Therefore, guidelines and standards are required to address these situations properly.

    Modelling and Simulation for Evaluation of Cooperative Intelligent Transport System Functions2016Licentiatavhandling, sammanläggning (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    Future vehicles are expected to be equipped with wireless communication tech- nology, that enables them to be “connected” to each others and road infras- tructures. Complementing current autonomous vehicles and automated driving systems, the wireless communication allows the vehicles to interact, cooperate, and be aware of its surroundings beyond their own sensors’ range. Such sys- tems are often referred to as Cooperative Intelligent Transport Systems (C-ITS), which aims to provide extra safety, efficiency, and sustainability to transporta- tion systems. Several C-ITS applications are under development and will require thorough testing and evaluation before their deployment in the real-world. C- ITS depend on several sub-systems, which increase their complexity, and makes them difficult to evaluate.

    Simulations are often used to evaluate many different automotive appli- cations, including C-ITS. Although they have been used extensively, simulation tools dedicated to determine all aspects of C-ITS are rare, especially human fac- tors aspects, which are often ignored. The majority of the simulation tools for C-ITS rely heavily on different combinations of network and traffic simulators. The human factors issues have been covered in only a few C-ITS simulation tools, that involve a driving simulator. Therefore, in this thesis, a C-ITS simu- lation framework that combines driving, network, and traffic simulators is pre- sented. The simulation framework is able to evaluate C-ITS applications from three perspectives; a) human driver; b) wireless communication; and c) traffic systems.

    Cooperative Adaptive Cruise Control (CACC) and its applications are cho- sen as the first set of C-ITS functions to be evaluated. Example scenarios from CACC and platoon merging applications are presented, and used as test cases for the simulation framework, as well as to elaborate potential usages of it. Moreover, approaches, results, and challenges from composing the simulation framework are presented and discussed. The results shows the usefulness of the proposed simulation framework.

    Safety Analysis of Cooperative Adaptive Cruise Control in Vehicle Cut-in Situations2017Ingår i: Proceedings of 2017 4th International Symposium on Future Active Safety Technology towards Zero-Traffic-Accidents (FAST-zero), Society of Automotive Engineers of Japan , 2017, artikel-id 20174621Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Cooperative adaptive cruise control (CACC) is a cooperative intelligent transport systems (C-ITS) function, which especially when used in platooning applications, possess many expected benefits including efficient road space utilization and reduced fuel consumption. Cut-in manoeuvres in platoons can potentially reduce those benefits, and are not desired from a safety point of view. Unfortunately, in realistic traffic scenarios, cut-in manoeuvres can be expected, especially from non-connected vehicles. In this paper two different controllers for platooning are explored, aiming at maintaining the safety of the platoon while a vehicle is cutting in from the adjacent lane. A realistic scenario, where a human driver performs the cut-in manoeuvre is used to demonstrate the effectiveness of the controllers. Safety analysis of CACC controllers using time to collision (TTC) under such situation is presented. The analysis using TTC indicate that, although potential risks are always high in CACC applications such as platooning due to the small inter-vehicular distances, dangerous TTC (TTC < 6 seconds) is not frequent. Future research directions are also discussed along with the results.

    Simulation of Cut-In by Manually Driven Vehicles in Platooning Scenarios2017Ingår i: 2017 IEEE 20th International Conference on Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITSC), Piscataway, NJ: IEEE, 2017, s. 1-6Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    In the near future, Cooperative Intelligent Transport System (C-ITS) applications are expected to be deployed. To support this, simulation is often used to design and evaluate the applications during the early development phases. Simulations of C-ITS scenarios often assume a fleet of homogeneous vehicles within the transportation system. In contrast, once C-ITS is deployed, the traffic scenarios will consist of a mixture of connected and non-connected vehicles, which, in addition, can be driven manually or automatically. Such mixed cases are rarely analysed, especially those where manually driven vehicles are involved. Therefore, this paper presents a C-ITS simulation framework, which incorporates a manually driven car through a driving simulator interacting with a traffic simulator, and a communication simulator, which together enable modelling and analysis of C-ITS applications and scenarios. Furthermore, example usages in the scenarios, where a manually driven vehicle cut-in to a platoon of Cooperative Adaptive Cruise Control (CACC) equipped vehicles are presented. © 2017 IEEE.

    Dimensions of Cooperative Driving, ITS and Automation2015Ingår i: 2015 IEEE Intelligent Vehicles Symposium (IV), Piscataway, NJ: IEEE Press, 2015, s. 144-149Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Wireless technology supporting vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V), and vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) communication, allow vehicles and infrastructures to exchange information, and cooperate. Cooperation among the actors in an intelligent transport system (ITS) can introduce several benefits, for instance, increase safety, comfort, efficiency. Automation has also evolved in vehicle control and active safety functions. Combining cooperation and automation would enable more advanced functions such as automated highway merge and negotiating right-of-way in a cooperative intersection. However, the combination have influences on the structure of the overall transport systems as well as on its behaviour. In order to provide a common understanding of such systems, this paper presents an analysis of cooperative ITS (C-ITS) with regard to dimensions of cooperation. It also presents possible influence on driving behaviour and challenges in deployment and automation of C-ITS.

    A simulation framework for cooperative intelligent transport systems testing and evaluation2019Ingår i: Transportation Research Part F: Traffic Psychology and Behaviour, ISSN 1369-8478, E-ISSN 1873-5517, Vol. 61, s. 268-280Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Connected and automated driving in the context of cooperative intelligent transport systems (C-ITS) is an emerging area in transport systems research. Interaction and cooperation between actors in transport systems are now enabled by the connectivity by means of vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2X) communication. To ensure the goals of C-ITS, which are safer and more efficient transport systems, testing and evaluation are required before deployment of C-ITS applications. Therefore, this paper presents a simulation framework—consisting of driving-, traffic-, and network-simulators—for testing and evaluation of C-ITS applications. Examples of cooperative adaptive cruise control (CACC) applications are presented, and are used as test cases for the simulation framework as well as to elaborate on potential use cases of it. Challenges from combining the simulators into one framework, and limitations are reported and discussed. Finally, the paper concludes with future development directions, and applications of the simulation framework in testing and evaluation of C-ITS. © 2017 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.

    Cooperative Driving Simulation2016Ingår i: Proceedings of the Driving Simulation Conference 2016, 2016, s. 123-132Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    For a few decades, driving simulators have been supporting research and development of advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS). In the near future, connected vehicles are expected to be deployed. Driving simulators will need to support evaluation of cooperative driving applications within cooperative intelligent transportation systems (C-ITS) scenarios. C-ITS utilize vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2X) communication. Simulation of the inter vehicle communication is often not supported in driving simulators. On the other hand, previous efforts have been made to connect network simulators and traffic simulators, to perform C-ITS simulations. Nevertheless, interactions between actors in the system is an essential aspect of C-ITS. Driving simulators can provide the opportunity to study interactions and reactions of human drivers to the system. This paper present simulation of a C-ITS scenario using a combination of driving, network, and traffic simulators. The architecture of the solution and important challenges of the integration are presented. A scenario from Grand Cooperative Driving Challenge (GCDC) 2016 is implemented in the simulator as an example use case. Lastly, potential usages and future developments are discussed.

    Extended Driving Simulator for Evaluation of Cooperative Intelligent Transport Systems2016Ingår i: SIGSIM-PADS '16: Proceedings of the 2016 annual ACM Conference on SIGSIM Principles of Advanced Discrete Simulation, New York: ACM Digital Library, 2016, s. 255-278Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Vehicles in cooperative intelligent transport systems (C-ITS) often need to interact with each other in order to achieve their goals, safe and efficient transport services. Since human drivers are still expected to be involved in C-ITS, driving simulators are appropriate tools for evaluation of the C-ITS functions. However, driving simulators often simplify the interactions or influences from the ego vehicle on the traffic. Moreover, they normally do not support vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2X) communication, which is the main enabler for C-ITS. Therefore, to increase the C-ITS evaluation capability, a solution on how to extend a driving simulator with traffic and network simulators to handle cooperative systems is presented as a result of this paper. Evaluation of the result using two use cases is presented. And, the observed limitations and challenges of the solution are reported and discussed. © 2016 ACM, Inc.

    Surface Roughness Measurment: Multi-bandFrequency Shift Interferometer based onPolarization Measurement2014Självständigt arbete på avancerad nivå (magisterexamen), 10 poäng / 15 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    Optical measurement techniques have been gaining ground for their vast applications in industry and scientific purposes. These techniques are beneficial comparing to the mechanical methods. Non-intrusive, robust, high accuracy and small measurement volume are some of the advantages of the optical metrology. However, these approaches are expensive. Interferometry is one of the most prominent principles of these optical measurements. It employs the study of fringe patterns in order to model surface roughness with a high precision up to nano-meter scale. In this thesis, we mainly focus on the multi-band frequency shifting interferometry based on polarization measurement for 3D surface modeling. The system has advantages such as it is very accurate and there is no need of a phase unwrapping algorithm. Like the conventional phase shifting interferometry, four intensity images are recorded for the four polarization states correspondingly and then the images are processed by MATLAB and the final results are provided. In this technique the need for three cameras and offset correction between the cameras has been revised and optimized by using only one camera. In the first setup trial, a fiber optic switch has been used which does not lead to the desired results and then the switch has been removed and the corresponding images are satisfactory.

    Sound conformance testing for cyber-physical systems: Theory and implementation2017Ingår i: Science of Computer Programming, ISSN 0167-6423, E-ISSN 1872-7964, Vol. 162, s. 35-54Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Conformance testing is a formal and structured approach to verifying system correctness. We propose a conformance testing algorithm for cyber-physical systems, based on the notion of hybrid conformance by Abbas and Fainekos. We show how the dynamics of system specification and the sampling rate play an essential role in making sound verdicts. We specify and prove error bounds that lead to sound test-suites for a given specification and a given sampling rate. We use reachability analysis to find such bounds and implement the proposed approach using the CORA toolbox in Matlab. We apply the implemented approach on a case study from the automotive domain. © 2017 The Author(s).

    A Process for Sound Conformance Testing of Cyber-Physical Systems2017Ingår i: 2017 IEEE International Conference on Software Testing, Verification and Validation Workshops (ICSTW) / [ed] Randall Bilof, Los Alamitos, CA: IEEE Computer Society, 2017, s. 46-50, artikel-id 7899032Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    We present a process for sound conformance testing of cyber-physical systems, which involves functional but also non-functional aspects. The process starts with a hybrid model of cyber-physical systems in which the correct behavior of the system (at its interface level) is specified. Such a model captures both discrete behavior and evolution of continuous dynamics of the system in time. Since conformance testing inherently involves comparing continuous dynamics, the key parameters of the process are (1) the conformance bounds defining when two signals are sufficiently close to each other, and (2) the permitted error margin in the conformance analysis introduced by sampling of continuous signals. The final parameter of this process is (3) finding (and adjusting) the sampling rate of the dynamic behavior. In the specified process, we provide different alternatives for fixing the error margin of the conformance testing if the sampling rate is fixed, establishing the sampling rate if the error margin is fixed and finding conformance bounds once the sampling rate and the error margin are fixed. © 2017 IEEE.

    Two-Wheel Self-Balancing of a Four-Wheeled Vehicle2011Ingår i: IEEE Control Systems Magazine, ISSN 1066-033X, Vol. 31, nr 2, s. 29-37Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Cars and trucks are susceptible to accidents due to rollover. In the United States in 2005, 21.1 of a total of 54,718 deaths in vehicle crashes were caused by rollover [1]. Significant research has therefore been devoted to detecting and preventing rollover through active control. Numerous approaches attempt to detect or predict wheel liftoff using onboard sensing and a combination of automatic steering and braking to keep the wheels on the ground [2][4]. © 2006 IEEE.

    Hur forensiska verktyg påverkar integriteten på mobiltelefoner2016Självständigt arbete på grundnivå (kandidatexamen), 10 poäng / 15 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [sv]

    Användandet av mobiltelefoner och andra mobila enheter är stort i samhället vilket gör att de förekommer allt oftare vid brott och brottsutredningar. Information i dessa enheter måste kunna utvinnas och integriteten på det utvinna materialet säkerställas. Syftet med detta arbete är att undersöker om de forensiska verktygen Xry och Encase påverkar materialet vid utvinning från mobiltelefoner. För att ta reda på detta har en litteraturstudie, en intervju och två experiment utförts. Resultatet från experimenten visade på att det fanns filer vars innehåll ändrades mellan utvinningar. En analys av resultatet visade att det var systemet själv samt processer som skedde innan utvinningen som förändrat innehållet. Slutsatsen blev att verktygen inte påverkar materialet under utvinningsprocessen

    Opportunity Mars Rover mission: Overview and selected results from Purgatory ripple to traverses to Endeavour crater2011Ingår i: Journal of Geophysical Research, ISSN 0148-0227, E-ISSN 2156-2202, Vol. 116, s. E00F15-Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Opportunity has been traversing the Meridiani plains since 25 January 2004 (sol 1), acquiring numerous observations of the atmosphere, soils, and rocks. This paper provides an overview of key discoveries between sols 511 and 2300, complementing earlier papers covering results from the initial phases of the mission. Key new results include (1) atmospheric argon measurements that demonstrate the importance of atmospheric transport to and from the winter carbon dioxide polar ice caps; (2) observations showing that aeolian ripples covering the plains were generated by easterly winds during an epoch with enhanced Hadley cell circulation; (3) the discovery and characterization of cobbles and boulders that include iron and stony-iron meteorites and Martian impact ejecta; (4) measurements of wall rock strata within Erebus and Victoria craters that provide compelling evidence of formation by aeolian sand deposition, with local reworking within ephemeral lakes; (5) determination that the stratigraphy exposed in the walls of Victoria and Endurance craters show an enrichment of chlorine and depletion of magnesium and sulfur with increasing depth. This result implies that regional-scale aqueous alteration took place before formation of these craters. Most recently, Opportunity has been traversing toward the ancient Endeavour crater. Orbital data show that clay minerals are exposed on its rim. Hydrated sulfate minerals are exposed in plains rocks adjacent to the rim, unlike the surfaces of plains outcrops observed thus far by Opportunity. With continued mechanical health, Opportunity will reach terrains on and around Endeavour's rim that will be markedly different from anything examined to date.

    Ethiopic Document Image Database for Testing Character Recognition Systems2006Rapport (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper we describe the acquisition and content of a large database of Ethiopic documents for testing and evaluating character recognition systems. The Ethiopic Document Image Database (EDIDB) contains documents written in Amharic and Geez languages. The database was built from a variety of documents such as printouts, books, newspapers, and magazines. Documents written in various font types, sizes and styles were included in the database. Degraded and poor quality documents were also included in the database to represent the real life situation. A total of 1,204 pages were scanned at a resolution of 300 dpi and saved as grayscale images of JPEG format. We also describe an evaluation protocol for standardizing the comparison of recognition systems and their results. The database is made available to the research community through http://www.hh.se/staff/josef/.

    Utredning av övertoners effekter på transformatorer2019Självständigt arbete på grundnivå (högskoleexamen), 10 poäng / 15 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [sv]

    Detta examensarbete är en utredning om hur en av Halmstad Energi och Miljö Nät ABs transformatorer påverkas av övertoner. Utredningen handlar till största del om hur mycket transformatorns nominella effekt måste skrivas ner. Examensarbetet visar teorin kring både vad som är övertoner, övertoners effekter på transformatorer samt beräkningsmodeller för effektnedskrivning. De metoder som används och jämförs för nedskrivning av transformatoreffekt är faktor K, som beskrivs i SS-EN 50464-3 och K-faktor, som beskrivs i ANSI/IEEE C57.100.

    För att på ett verklighetstroget och ingenjörsmässigt sätt beräkna hur de olika standarderna påverkar transformatorn har tre fall testats.  

    • Övertonernas medelinverkan under en månad, utifrån insamlade mätdata.
    • Övertonernas maximala inverkan under en månad, utifrån insamlade mätdata.
    • Övertonernas inverkan om övertonshalterna ökar i framtiden.

    Resultatet av utredningen visar att transformatorns nominella effekt i fallen där mätdata behandlas bör minskas med ca 6–17% för K-faktor-metoden. För faktor K är de siffrorna ca 2,5–7,5%. Dock visar mätdata från samtliga fallen att belastningsgraden på den testade trans-formatorn är långt under den maximala nedskrivna effekten. Om mängden strömövertoner i framtiden skulle öka är en nedskrivning på 30% av maxeffekten inte orimligt.

    Data Offloading in 5G-Enabled Software-Defined Vehicular Networks: A Stackelberg-Game-Based Approach2017Ingår i: IEEE Communications Magazine, ISSN 0163-6804, E-ISSN 1558-1896, Vol. 55, nr 8, s. 100-108Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Data offloading using vehicles is one of the most challenging tasks to perform due to the high mobility of vehicles. There are many solutions available for this purpose, but due to the inefficient management of data along with the control decisions, these solutions are not adequate to provide data offloading by making use of the available networks. Moreover, with the advent of 5G and related technologies, there is a need to cope with high speed and traffic congestion in the existing infrastructure used for data offloading. Hence, to make intelligent decisions for data offloading, an SDN-based scheme is presented in this article. In the proposed scheme, an SDNbased controller is designed that makes decisions for data offloading by using the priority manager and load balancer. Using these two managers in SDN-based controllers, traffic routing is managed efficiently even with an increase in the size of the network. Moreover, a single-leader multi-follower Stackelberg game for network selection is also used for data offloading. The proposed scheme is evaluated with respect to several parameters where its performance was found to be superior in comparison to the existing schemes. © Copyright 2017 IEEE

    Nya lagar och avtal: Hur kan de komma att förändra svenskarnas fildelningsvanor?2012Självständigt arbete på grundnivå (högskoleexamen), 5 poäng / 7,5 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [sv]

    I många år nu har det varit vanligt förekommande att människor suttit hemma vid sin dator och med några få klick laddat ner filmer, musik och programvaror, till en början helt lagligt, men med åren har lagar kommit till som har gjort det mer och mer olagligt.Oavsett om det har varit lagligt eller inte, så är det troligt att många artister, filmmakare och liknande gått miste om stora summor pengar i förlorade inkomster på grund av att folk inte har betalat för att ta del av deras verk, utan istället valt att ladda ner dem över Internet.

    Det faktum att fildelning har blivit så pass vanligt och att folk inte har sett det som ett särskilt allvarligt brott, har lett till att fildelning länge har varit ett hett omdiskuterat ämne i media, bland upphovsrättsinnehavare och bland folk i allmänhet. Upphovsmän och upphovsrättsinnehavare, såsom filmbolag, författare och artister har legat på och debatterat för att försöka få till en hårdare lagstiftning för att försvåra fildelning och kopiering av upphovsrättsskyddat material, samt för att få till hårdare straff mot fildelning.

    Flera försök från beslutsfattare har gjorts för att råda bot på problemet, nya lagar har stiftats och avtal har skrivits under. Frågan är om de nya lagarna och avtalen gör någon nytta? Blir folk avskräckta från att fildela eller fortsätter de som förut? Många har säkert under många år blivit bortskämda med att kunna sitta hemma vid datorn och på några minuter få hem de senaste filmerna och den nyaste musiken helt gratis, vilket säkert gör det svårt att helt plötsligt sluta fildela och börja betala för film och musik igen.

    Wireless Low Power Data Acquisition Device: Embedded design and application2012Självständigt arbete på grundnivå (kandidatexamen), 10 poäng / 15 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    Embedded systems are utilized in various modern-day applications in order to ease routine tasks that are otherwise demanding in manpower; an example of which is data sensing and acquisition. Modern sensor applications usually involve one or more embedded microcomputer systems with inputs from various sensors and a means of connection to transmit the acquitted data to its point of interest. While many sensor and acquisition applications and standards exist for industrial use, the consumer/small business markets for such devices seem to be fairly bleak in comparison. In this project, various data communication standards for transmitting information between sensors and acquisition devices are investigated. Wired, such as RS232, I²C, SPI and 1-Wire, as well as wireless protocols like Wi-Fi and ZigBee were studied. Then, a generic wireless data acquisition platform is designed and realized. The reference implementation connects to a wireless LAN network over Wi-Fi, starts a web server and serves HTML5 web pages and a CSS3 style sheet from SPI flash memory. The sensor data is collected from integrated sensor circuits over an I²C link. Device can run on 3 AA batteries for a combined uptime of at least 3 weeks. Lastly, possible expansion options for the implemented device are discussed and supplemented with real-world examples where possible. Feasible consumer applications for such a platform are then given to conclude.

    In this paper we present a self-learning method for low-level navigation for autonomous mobile robots, based on a neural network. Both corridor following and obstacle avoidance in indoor environments are successfully managed by the same network. Raw gray scale images of size 32 by 23 pixels are processed one by one by a feed forward neural network. The output signals of the network represent the appropriate steering actions of the robot.

    A low-cost colour vision-system for robot design competitions1998Ingår i: Mechatronics '98 / [ed] Josef Adolfsson and Jeanette Karlsén, Oxford: Pergamon Press, 1998, s. 595-600Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper we present a low-cost colour vision system mainly intended for robot design competitions, which nowadays is a popular, project-oriented, way of teaching mechatronics in engineering curriculums. The estimated cost is about 450 dollar inclusive colour camera and the system is small enough to be carried on-board relative small mobile robots. The system is build around a signal processor TMS C31. We also present and discuss the experiences made with the system in our robot design competition.

    A Reliable Token-Based MAC Protocol for V2V Communication in Urban VANET2016Ingår i: 2016 IEEE 27TH ANNUAL INTERNATIONAL SYMPOSIUM ON PERSONAL, INDOOR, AND MOBILE RADIO COMMUNICATIONS (PIMRC), Piscataway: IEEE , 2016, s. 1586-1591Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Safety applications developed for vehicular environments require every vehicle to periodically broadcast its status information (beacon) to all other vehicles, thereby avoiding the risk of car accidents in the road. Due to the high requirements on timing and reliability posed by traffic safety applications, the current IEEE 802.11p standard, which uses a random access Medium Access Control (MAC) protocol, faces difficulties to support timely and reliable data dissemination in vehicular environments where no acknowledgement or RTS/CTS (Request-to-Send/Clear-to-Send) mechanisms are adopted. In this paper, we propose the Dynamic Token-Based MAC (DTB-MAC) protocol. It implements a token passing approach on top of a random access MAC protocol to prevent channel contention as much as possible, thereby improving the reliability of safety message transmissions. Our proposed protocol selects one of the neighbouring nodes as the next transmitter; this selection accounts for the need to avoid beacon lifetime expiration. Therefore, it automatically offers retransmission opportunities to allow vehicles to successfully transmit their beacons before the next beacon is generated whenever time and bandwidth are available. Based on simulation experiments, we show that the DTB-MAC protocol can achieve better performance than IEEE 802.11p in terms of channel utilization and beacon delivery ratio for urban scenarios.

    A Reliable Token-Based MAC Protocol for Delay Sensitive Platooning Applications2015Ingår i: 2015 IEEE 82nd Vehicular Technology Conference (VTC2015-Fall), [S.l.]: IEEE, 2015, artikel-id 7390813Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Platooning is both a challenging and rewarding application. Challenging since strict timing and reliability requirements are imposed by the distributed control system required to operate the platoon. Rewarding since considerable fuel reductions are possible. As platooning takes place in a vehicular ad hoc network, the use of IEEE 802.11p is close to mandatory. However, the 802.11p medium access method suffers from packet collisions and random delays. Most ongoing research suggests using TDMA on top of 802.11p as a potential remedy. However, TDMA requires synchronization and is not very flexible if the beacon frequency needs to be updated, the number of platoon members changes, or if retransmissions for increased reliability are required. We therefore suggest a token-passing medium access method where the next token holder is selected based on beacon data age. This has the advantage of allowing beacons to be re-broadcasted in each beacon interval whenever time and bandwidth are available. We show that our token-based method is able to reduce the data age and considerably increase reliability compared to pure 802.11p. © 2015 IEEE.

    An Efficient MAC Protocol for vehicle platooning in automated highway systems2015Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Lately, all the top truck manufacturers are investing considerable resources in the research and development of platooning systems which would allow vehicles to save fuel and improve safety by travelling in a close-following manner. The platooning system requires frequent and reliable vehicle-to-vehicle communications. As platooning takes place in a vehicular ad hoc network, the use of IEEE 802.11p is close to mandatory. However, the 802.11p medium access method suffers from packet collisions and random delays. Most ongoing research suggests using TDMA on top of 802.11p as a potential remedy.

    Modelling and Simulation of Vehicle Kinematics and Dynamics2017Självständigt arbete på avancerad nivå (masterexamen), 20 poäng / 30 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    With the rapid growth in the automotive industry, vehicles have become more complex and sophisticated. Vehicle development today, involves integration of both electrical and mechanical systems. Their design and production are typically time and cost critical. To complement and support the process of vehicle development and design, majority of the automotive industry use modelling and simulationfor testing automotive applications, vehicle subsystems or the vehicle behaviour in its entirety.

    For the purpose of traffic simulations, where a large number of vehicles and other elements of the road network are simulated, implementing a highly complex vehicle model would greatly affect the performance of the simulation. The complexity of the vehicle model would entail a higher computation time of the system, making it unsuitable for any real time application. There in lies the trade-off indesigning a model that is both fast and accurate. The majority of the vehicle models that have been designed are either domain specific, highly complex or generalized. Thus, in this thesis, two class specific vehicles’ kinematic models with good accuracy and low computation time are presented.

    Two different modelling paradigms have been adopted to design and test these models. The results, challenges and limitations that pertain to these paradigms are also presented and discussed. The results show the feasibility of the proposed kinematic models.

    Exploiting bacterial properties for multi-hop nanonetworks2014Ingår i: IEEE Communications Magazine, ISSN 0163-6804, E-ISSN 1558-1896, Vol. 52, nr 7, s. 184-191Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Molecular communication is a relatively new communication paradigm for nanomachines where the communication is realized by utilizing existing biological components found in nature. In recent years researchers have proposed using bacteria to realize molecular communication because the bacteria have the ability to swim and migrate between locations, carry DNA contents (i.e. plasmids) that could be utilized for information storage, and interact and transfer plasmids to other bacteria (one of these processes is known as bacterial conjugation). However, current proposals for bacterial nanonetworks have not considered the internal structures of the nanomachines that can facilitate the use of bacteria as an information carrier. This article presents the types and functionalities of nanomachines that can be utilized in bacterial nanonetworks. A particular focus is placed on the bacterial conjugation and its support for multihop communication between nanomachines. Simulations of the communication process have also been evaluated, to analyze the quantity of bits received as well as the delay performances. Wet lab experiments have also been conducted to validate the bacterial conjugation process. The article also discusses potential applications of bacterial nanonetworks for cancer monitoring and therapy. © 2014 IEEE.

    Teletrix2012Självständigt arbete på grundnivå (högskoleexamen), 10 poäng / 15 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [sv]

    Det trådbundna telefonnätet har blivit för dyrt att underhålla och utveckla. Därför håller Telia nu på att ta ner delar av det. För de abonnenter som berörs av detta har Telia en lösning som de kallar fast mobil. Istället för att abonnenterna ringer via det trådbundna nätet ringer de via GSM-nätet istället.Målet med detta examensarbete är att skapa en alternativ lösning till Telias. Vi börjar med att undersöka hur det analoga nätet fungerar. Därefter bygger vi ett eget analogt gränssnitt som kommunicerar med vanliga hemtelefoner. En mikroprocessor kommer att styra en GSM-modul och tolka signaler från det analoga gränssnittet.Resultatet av detta arbete är en apparatur som vi kallar Teletrix – en fast mobil. Med en Teletrix kan vanliga hemtelefoner ringa via GSM-nätet med god samtalskvalitet och med grundläggande funktioner som kopplingston och ringsignal.

    Forensisk  analys av smartphones: - fokus på sociala medier2013Självständigt arbete på grundnivå (kandidatexamen), 10 poäng / 15 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [sv]

    I dagens samhälle är trenden att fler och fler människor införskaffar smartphones för att när som helst kunna vara uppkopplade mot internet. Detta gör att informationen en smartphone hanterar och sparar är viktigare och mer intressant för båda sidorna av lagen. Med denna ökning av smartphones har användandet av applikationer till sociala medier så som facebook ökat.I denna rapport utreds det vad en facebookapplikation lagrar för typ av information efter den har använts och hur pass noga det går att kartlägga vart applikationen har används. För att kunna göra detta krävs först en utredning på vilka sätt de går att hämta ut information ifrån en smartphone. I denna rapport har det alltså utretts huruvida de går att utvinna samma information med hjälp av flera metoder och om de går att uppnå samma resultat med hjälp av en utvinning med de olika metoderna. Vid analys av den utvunna datan visar det sig att applikationen lagrade den intressanta datan i databasfiler. Allt från meddelanden och statusuppdateringar till platsdata sparades i dessa databasfiler, vilket gjorde att enheten gick att kartlägga.

    Noise measurements of a low power detector for RFID applications2012Självständigt arbete på avancerad nivå (magisterexamen), 10 poäng / 15 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    In this work we provide measurements on low power envelope detector and compare them with results predicted by theory. This envelope detector is supposed to be used as a part of low power Wake-up radio for RFID applications. In the work we were mostly interested in noise parameters and blocker effect verification.

    The detector we use is based on CMOS transistors biased in subthreshold region. It gives us low power consumption and high sensitivity. For power consumption about 10 uA and signal to noise ratio equals to 10, the achieved sensitivity is 1.8 mV.

    The results of the work can be used to build low power envelope detector for specific requirements.

    On the performance of packet aggregation in IEEE 802.11ac MU-MIMO WLANs2012Ingår i: IEEE Communications Letters, ISSN 1089-7798, E-ISSN 1558-2558, Vol. 16, nr 10, s. 1588-1591Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Multi-user spatial multiplexing combined with packet aggregation can significantly increase the performance of Wireless Local Area Networks (WLANs). In this letter, we present and evaluate a simple technique to perform packet aggregation in IEEE 802.11ac MU-MIMO (Multi-user Multiple Input Multiple Output) WLANs. Results show that in non-saturation conditions both the number of active stations (STAs) and the queue size have a significant impact on the system performance. If the number of STAs is excessively high, the heterogeneity of destinations in the packets contained in the queue makes it difficult to take full advantage of packet aggregation. This effect can be alleviated by increasing the queue size, which increases the chances of scheduling a large number of packets at each transmission, hence improving the system throughput at the cost of a higher delay. © 1997-2012 IEEE.

    Performance evaluation of IEEE 802.11p-enabled vehicular video surveillance system2014Ingår i: IEEE Communications Letters, ISSN 1089-7798, E-ISSN 1558-2558, Vol. 18, nr 4, s. 708-711Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Prospective IEEE 802.11p-based vehicular surveillance system, where video from the vehicle on-board camera is transmitted to the management center, is considered. Multi-hop transmission from the vehicle to the nearest roadside unit and then-via other roadside units-to the gateway is addressed. In this letter we assess the feasibility of such system by analyzing the video end-to-end distortion for a target vehicle, located several hops away from the gateway, when it is alone or there are also other vehicles transmitting video. We demonstrate the importance of dynamic adaptation of the video bit rate of each vehicle depending on the number and positions of the participating vehicles. © 2014 IEEE.

    Performance analysis of CSMA/CA protocols with multi-packet transmission2013Ingår i: Computer Networks, ISSN 1389-1286, E-ISSN 1872-7069, Vol. 57, nr 14, s. 2675-2688Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Wireless objects equipped with multiple antennas are able to simultaneously transmit multiple packets by exploiting the channel's spatial dimensions. In this paper, we study the benefits of such Multiple Packet Transmission (MPT) approach, when it is used in combination with a Carrier Sense Multiple Access with Collision Avoidance (CSMA/CA) protocol for fully interconnected networks, addressing the interactions between the two mechanisms and showing the performance gains that can be achieved. To this end, a very simple Media Access Control (MAC) protocol that captures the fundamental properties and tradeoffs of a CSMA/CA channel access protocol supporting MPT is introduced. Using this protocol as a reference, a new analytical model is presented for the case of non-saturated traffic sources with finite buffer space. Simulation results show that the analytical model is able to accurately characterize the steady-state behavior of the reference protocol for different number of antennas and different traffic loads, providing a useful tool for understanding the performance gains achieved by MAC protocols supporting MPT. © 2013 Elsevier B.V.

    Throughput Analysis in CSMA/CA Networks Using Continuous Time Markov Networks: A Tutorial2014Ingår i: Wireless Networking for Moving Objects / [ed] Ivan Ganchev, Marília Curado, Andreas Kassler, Cham: Springer, 2014, s. 115-133Kapitel i bok, del av antologi (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This book chapter introduces the use of Continuous Time Markov Networks (CTMN) to analytically capture the operation of Carrier Sense Multiple Access with Collision Avoidance (CSMA/CA) networks. It is of tutorial nature, and it aims to be an introduction on this topic, providing a clear and easy-to-follow description. To illustrate how CTMN can be used, we introduce a set of representative and cutting-edge scenarios, such as Vehicular Ad-hoc Networks (VANETs), Power Line Communication networks and multiple overlapping Wireless Local Area Networks (WLANs). For each scenario, we describe the specific CTMN, obtain its stationary distribution and compute the throughput achieved by each node in the network. Taking the per-node throughput as reference, we discuss how the complex interactions between nodes using CSMA/CA have an impact on system performance.

    Extension of Trajectory Planning in Parameterized Spaces to Articulated Vehicles2017Ingår i: Proceedings of the 2017 22nd IEEE International Conference on Emerging Technologies and Factory Automation, Piscataway: Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2017Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The main objective of this research is to study a novel method for safe maneuvering of articulated vehicles in warehouses. The presented method extends the concept of probabilistic planning on manifolds to articulated vehicles, which will be capable of driving, maneuvering and performing obstacle avoidance in any scenario. The proposed technique involves the extension of a parameterized space, developed for the reactive navigation of differential driven vehicles, to include an additional degree of freedom and use a probabilistic planner to calculate kinematically feasible trajectories. As a result, the algorithm is able to successfully generate maneuvers for an articulated truck and to navigate towards specific target points. The approach was validated using three problems representing different driving scenarios, demonstrating the possible utilization of the method in real-case scenarios. The solutions have been further benchmarked on multiple runs to evaluate success rate and to demonstrate the validity of the algorithm.
