Conference Paper
Full-text available
In this paper, a microcontroller-based digital Bangla clock has been constructed with ATmega32 and its software is written with C language. The designed clock is reliable, portable and fully functional with alarm system and its Bangla digits are displayed accurately with a 10-segment display. The clock is also functional in dual language mode both...

The proliferation of sensing equipment serving an expansive range of applications has led the Internet of Things (IoT) paradigm to cover technologies beyond Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN). Extensive advancement in electronics, communication methods and sensors has made it possible to leverage advanced technologies such as Machine Learning and Prob-...
Preprint
Autonomous or teleoperated robots have been playing increasingly important roles in civil applications in recent years. Across the different civil domains where robots can support human operators, one of the areas where they can have more impact is in search and rescue (SAR) operations. In particular, multi-robot systems have the potential to signi...
Article
Full-text available
A rapidly growing number of vehicles in recent years cause long traffic jams and difficulty in the management of traffic in cities. One of the most significant reasons for increased traffic jams on the road is random parking in unauthorized and non-permitted places. In addition, managing of available parking places cannot achieve the expected reduc...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Autonomous small robots are getting a lot of attention for use in industrial and domestic purposes. These are equipped with few to numerous amounts of sensors to help understand the operating environment, take appropriate next-step decisions, prioritize actions and operate with little to no human intervention. Light detection and ranging (LIDAR) se...

Search and rescue (SAR) operations can take significant advantage from supporting autonomous or teleoperated robots and multi-robot systems. These can aid in mapping and situational assessment, monitoring and surveillance, establishing communication networks, or searching for victims. This paper provides a review of multi-robot systems supporting S...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
With the rise of the IoT, there has been a growing demand for people counting and occupancy estimation in Intelligent buildings for adapting their heating, ventilation and cooling systems. This can have a significant impact on energy consumption at a global scale as such systems consume about 40% of electricity and create about 36% of the CO2 emiss...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Increased automation and intelligence in computer systems have revealed limitations of Cloud-based computing such as unpredicted latency in safety-critical and performance-sensitive applications. The amount of data generated from ubiquitous sensors has reached a degree where it becomes impractical to always store and process in the Cloud. Edge comp...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Indoor mobile robots are widely used in industrial environments such as large logistic warehouses. They are often in charge of collecting or sorting products. For such robots, computation-intensive operations account for a significant percentage of the total energy consumption and consequently affect battery life. Besides, in order to keep both the...
Article
Falls can cause serious traumas such as brain injuries and bone fractures, especially among elderly people. Fear of falling might reduce physical activities resulting in declining social interactions and eventually causing depression. To lessen the effects of a fall, timely delivery of medical treatment can play a vital role. In a similar scenario,...

A better lifestyle starts with a healthy heart. Unfortunately, millions of people around the world are either directly affected by heart diseases such as coronary artery disease and heart muscle disease (Cardiomyopathy), or are indirectly having heart-related problems like heart attack and/or heart rate irregularity. Monitoring and analyzing these...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Use of computer technology in modern student centred leaning is playing a vital role. Works are going on in the developed countries in building interactive teaching tools which will give more degrees of freedom to both the teachers and the students in the learning process. In this process, classroom itself can play an important role. So we have dev...

Question
Most common low-cost Bluetooth modules used in micro-controller based projects are limited to around 1 Mbps thru Serial Port Profile (SPP). In addition, while the modules can transfer short data packets at all baud rates, they halt or fail completely when trying to achieve sustained high data rates. How to successfully transfer/stream data at all available baud rates for prolonged period of time? Are there any other feasible options for use i.e. different profile of Bluetooth in this case?
Question
Galvanic Skin Response (GSR) varies from person to person. How to set a baseline for GSR considering parameters such as probe-type, probe-material, skin moisture level, blood pressure, temperature and stress-level which can affect the result?
