Wideband Micro-Power Generators for Vibration Energy Harvesting
(University of Waterloo, 2009-08-24)
Energy harvesters collect and convert energy available in the environment into useful electrical power to satisfy the power requirements of autonomous systems. Vibration energy is a prevalent source of waste energy in ...
On Geometric Range Searching, Approximate Counting and Depth Problems
(University of Waterloo, 2008-09-24)
In this thesis we deal with problems connected to range searching, which is one of the central areas of computational geometry. The dominant problems in this area are halfspace range searching, simplex range searching ...
Design, Modeling, and Analysis for MAC Protocols in Ultra-wideband Networks
(University of Waterloo, 2008-05-06)
Ultra-wideband (UWB) is an appealing transmission technology for short-range, bandwidth demanded wireless communications. With the data rate of several hundred megabits per second, UWB demonstrates great potential in ...
Improved Particle Filter Based Localization and Mapping Techniques
(University of Waterloo, 2008-04-28)
One of the most fundamental problems in mobile robotics is localization. The solution to most problems requires that the robot first determine its location in the environment. Even if the absolute position is not necessary, ...
Thin-Film Transistor Integration for Biomedical Imaging and AMOLED Displays
(University of Waterloo, 2008-05-14)
Thin film transistor (TFT) backplanes are being continuously researched for new applications such as active-matrix organic light emitting diode (AMOLED) displays, sensors, and x-ray imagers. However, the circuits implemented ...
