Autonomous navigation algorithms for indoor mobile robots
In many autonomous mobile robotic applications, the capability of finding a good path is of primary importance, especially for the places which are cluttered by random obstacles that may appear on the robot's path.
Progressive freeze concentration of naphthenic acids
Canada’s oil reserves are among the largest in the world with over 1.7 trillion barrels of bitumen in place with confirmed measurements indicating there are 173 billion barrels of recoverable oil under current economic ...
Management, environmental and energy considerations for woodwaste
Manufacturing operations that process raw wood, such as sawmills and pulp and paper mills, generate wood residue, such as woodwaste, sawdust, shavings, wood chips and off-cuts, also known as woodwaste. The decomposition ...
Investigation of the impact of impurities on the properties of nitride semiconductors grown by RPECVD
Progress toward the improvement of optical emission from InGaN optical active region devices is made through a combination of the tailoring of p-type gallium nitride growth recipes and bandstructure calculations on a graded ...
Design and control of a 10 DOF biped robot
Compared to wheeled robots, biped robots have their advantages. Biped robots have better mobility. Biped robots can walk in human environments, such as rough terrain and the place that contains obstacles, and can also climb ...
Effects of freezing on UV inactivation of waterbourne microorganisms
In northern communities where source water may be frozen for parts of the year or wastewater is treated using freezing technology, the efficiency of UV inactivation may be affected. This research was carried out to investigate ...
Catalytic gasification of biomass for the production of syngas with reduced tar formation
With increased concerns over greenhouse gas emission and decreasing fossil fuel supplies, biomass is increasingly seen as an alternative option for energy and chemical production. There are several technologies available ...
Nutrients Recovery from Municipal Wastewater Effluent using Electrochemical and Freeze Concentration Approaches
Municipal wastewater (MWW) is now being re-evaluated as a potential multi-resource for water, energy and nutrients. Anaerobic membrane bioreactors (AnMBRs) are increasingly being investigated as a cost-effective biological ...
Online loss minimization based direct torque and flux control of IPMSM drive
With the advent of high energy rare earth magnetic material such as, third generation neodymium-iron-boron (NdFeB), permanent magnet synchronous motor (PMSM) is becoming more and more popular in high power industrial ...
Context aware services for smart learning environments
This thesis describes a cost-effective infrastructure and implementation for building ubiquitous learning spaces. It uses techniques from the semantic web and ubiquitous computing to build a learner-centric service-based ...
