Distributed model predictive control and estimation of large-scale multi-rate systems, " Abstract: In this paper, we propose a new method for control of large-scale multi-rate systems with linear dynamics that are coupled via inputs. These systems are multi-rate systems in the sense that either output measurements or input updates are not available at(More)
Wireless sensor networks are collections of autonomous devices with computational, sensing and wireless communication capabilities. Research in these networks has been growing steadily in the past few years given the wide range of applications that can benefit from such a technology. In this paper, the development of a highly modular and miniaturized(More)
The goal of this work is to fabricate robust, miniature, wireless sensor modules. These provide an enabling technology platform to conduct research in creating ambient systems, through implementing wireless sensor network applications. The approach taken is to partition the wireless sensor module into a series of layers with area 25mm x 25mm. This modular(More)
The paper describes research that has been carried out in "extrovert-Gadgets", a research project funded in the context of EU IST/FET proactive initiative "Disappearing Computer". It presents a set of architectures for the composition of ubiquitous computing applications. The proposed architectures are part of GAS (Gadgetware Architectural Style), a generic(More)
This paper contains the results of an initial study into the FPGA implementation of a spiking neural network. This work was undertaken as a task in a project that aims to design and develop a new kind of tangible Collaborative Autonomous Agent. The project intends to exploit/investigate methods for engineering emergent collective behaviour in large(More)
Recent advances in materials, sensing, power harvesting, context-awareness and miniaturisation have opened-up the possibility of constructing materials that directly include considerable computing power. We present an architecture for the hardware/software co-design of such " augmented " materials that allows designers to address the links between the(More)
A robust hybrid intelligent system architecture is being proposed. This communication discusses the prospect of using NMRC's 25mm wireless sensor node in conjunction with other sensor motes. The NMRC node is the Institute's specification for future autonomous transducer nodes in ubiquitous computational networks that will drive the vision of Ambient(More)
