Integrated Sensor Training Platform for Big-data Collection:



EE3080 DIP:Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV)
Unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV), an aircraft whose flight can be controlled by an external operator instead of being piloted by a human. It is commonly used for military and civil operations that are too dangerous or dirty and unhygienic. In this study, we report an experiment to construct a Quad-copter UAV using the minimal cost of materials and fly it steadily across a distance using three different modes: Radio Control (RC) Controller, PC Control and Brain-Computer Interface (BCI). The main purpose is to work out the BCI control to let the disabled regain their mobility functions to assist them in their daily lives. Hence, our study is more inclined and focused towards the third approach, BCI.

4. Student Awards


(1). NTU ERIAN-EEE team ZHANG, Yonghao (ERIAN staff), HUANG, Hantao (EEE undergraduate student) and QIU, Danqing (EEE MS student), supervised by Asst. Prof. YU, Hao (EEE) has won the first prize of NTU-Infineon Electronic Design Competition 2012/2013 with 10,000 SGD. (08 Jul 2013)
The competition is performed and judged on July 8th at Infineon, Singapore. The objective of this design competition is mainly to develop electronic systems to improve energy efficiency, an emerging problem to address at Singapore. The NTU ERIAN-EEE team has developed an energy cloud system for smart buildings and rooms, which can not only collect energy profiles of rooms; but also analyze the stored energy profile to perform a demand-response energy management. As such workloads can be shifted and peak energy consumption can be reduced. What is more, the energy cloud system also help users remotely access the energy profiles and further perform control by mobile terminals such as iPad. This work has been considered for the future NTU-ECO campus development plan by working with a number of potential industry partners.
