    • 2D Digital Filter Implementation on a FPGA 

      Tsuei, Danny Teng-Hsiang (University of Waterloo, 2011-08-31)
      The use of two dimensional (2D) digital filters for real-time 2D data processing has found important practical applications in many areas, such as aerial surveillance, satellite imaging and pattern recognition. In the ...
    • 3-D Reconstruction from Single Projections, with Applications to Astronomical Images 

      Cormier, Michael (University of Waterloo, 2013-08-23)
      A variety of techniques exist for three-dimensional reconstruction when multiple views are available, but less attention has been given to reconstruction when only a single view is available. Such a situation is normal in ...

      Gujral, Sarbjeet Singh (University of Waterloo, 2017-05-10)
      The year 2017, marks the 110th anniversary of the discovery of Alzheimer’s disease (AD)- a devastating neurodegenerative disease. Regardless of the significant advances made in the past century on the pathology of AD, the ...
    • 36 Stratagems Towards a People's Modernity 

      Chau, Tammy Sau-Lyn (University of Waterloo, 2009-09-17)
      The design thesis is sited along the Shanghai Bund in China. It pursues an alternative modernity that is quintessentially Chinese by developing a design approach specific to the local imperatives and the contextual condition. ...
    • The 38th Parallel: Penetrating the Line 

      Oh, Juhee (University of Waterloo, 2007-09-20)
      In July 1953, the armistice ended the Korean War that lasted for three years and established the Demilitarized Zone on either side of the demarcation line as a buffer between the two countries to prevent further military ...
    • 3D MEMS Microassembly 

      Do, Chau (University of Waterloo, 2008-09-03)
      Due to the potential uses and advantages of 3D microelectromechanical systems (MEMS), research has been ongoing to advance the field. The intention of my reasearch is to explore different gripper designs and their ...
    • 3D Motion Planning using Kinodynamically Feasible Motion Primitives in Unknown Environments 

      Chen, Peiyi (University of Waterloo, 2011-09-01)
      Autonomous vehicles are a great asset to society by helping perform many dangerous or tedious tasks. They have already been successfully employed for many practical applications, such as search and rescue, automated ...
    • 3D printing of soft hydrogels incorporating functional nanomaterials 

      Wu, Yun (University of Waterloo, 2017-01-10)
      Tissue engineering (TE) scaffolds are required to closely mimic the human body environment to enable the study of cell behavior in vitro and allow the fabrication of artificial tissue constructs. The scaffolds should possess ...
    • 3D Reconstruction of 138 KV Power-lines from Airborne LiDAR Data 

      Xiang, Qing (University of Waterloo, 2014-02-20)
      Due to infrequent and imprecise maintenance inspection in power-line corridors, accidents can be caused by interferences, for instance, surrounding trees. Transmission power-line inspection conventionally relies on the ...
    • 4150 Cousins: What 7 DNA Ancestry Tests Can Tell You About Your Kin 

      Nadeau, Danielle (University of Waterloo, 2016-01-12)
