Surveillance permanente de l’état des machines opérant àvitesse et charge variables

Le changement de comportement dynamique des machines tournantes (ponts roulants, éoliennes, robots) en fonction de la vitesse et de la charge se confond facilement avec un changement d’état de l’équipement, ce qui déclenche souvent de fausses alarmes sur des machines saines. De plus, la plupart de ces machines opèrent à très basses vitesses, ce qui cause des problèmes sur la sélection de capteurs efficaces et sur les normes inexistantes dans ce genre d’application.

Facteurs déterminants de la prise de risque : développement d’un outil de mesure

La pratique sportive, qu’elle soit compétitive ou récréative, bien que reconnue comme un facteur de protection pour la santé, comporte un risque de blessures ayant des conséquences significatives pour la santé des pratiquants. Des études montrent que les hommes de 12 à 24 ans (Hamel & Tremblay, 2012) sont les plus grandes victimes de traumatisme d’origine récréative et sportive (TORS). Une étude qualitative a permis de dresser un portrait des facteurs déterminants de la prise de risque en loisir.

Méthodologie et outils de conception de simulateur temps réel avec matériel dans la boucle sur FPGA

Pour tester les contrôleurs électriques dans les domaines tels que les systèmes de puissance, l’aéronautique et l’automobile, on doit réaliser des simulateurs temps réel des moteurs et d’autres dispositifs électriques afin de s’assurer de leur bon fonctionnement et de leur sécurité dans diverses circonstances (ex. la foudre qui frappe une ligne de transmission ou un avion). Par ailleurs, ces simulateurs doivent réagir très rapidement aux commandes (de l’ordre du millionième de seconde).

Security Investigation and Solutions to Online Advertising Fraud Problems

The market share of online advertising, also known as Internet advertising, has been increasing dramatically in recent years. On the other hand, malicious behaviors, such as click fraud, have degraded the effectiveness of online advertising. Via fraud clicks, a considerable amount of revenues have been lost to fraud conductors. For instance, based on a report published by PricewaterhouseCoopers, click fraud accounts for as much as 36% of all advertising clicks, which costs defrauded advertisers hundreds of millions of dollars annually.

Investigating the empowerment of teachers and studentsat Northern Canadian schools throughtelecommunication technology

The proposed research project investigates how the Telepresence technology (Connected North) has an impact on Northern students’ and teachers’ educational experience. Our goal is to assess the impact of its implementation within three contexts: connecting students to students, connecting students to experts, and connecting teachers to teachers. To this end, we will administer questionnaires to teachers and students before and after the introduction of the technology, as well as compare groups who experience versus do not experience the technology for a particular curriculum unit.

Development of a Solvent-Free Technology for Production of High Functional Protein Powders from Oilseeds and Grains

Oilseeds and grains are considered to be excellent sources of non-animal proteins containing the appropriate essential amino acids required for optimal human health. Conventional protein production methods involve the use of solvents, concentrated acids and alkali that result in protein denaturation, thereby reducing the quality and functionality of the protein ingredients. The proposed project will explore the potential of a dry or solvent free electrostatic-based separation technique for the production of high-quality protein powders from soy and navy beans.

Cooperative Integrated Navigation Systems for GNSS-Challenging Environments

Connected Cars is an emerging technology that aims at enhancing driving experience and improving safety, productivity, and integrity of transportation systems. Intelligent Mechatronic Systems Inc. (IMS) is a leader in telematics and infotainment technologies, including the convergence of both technologies in delivering the ultimate connected car experience. One of the core components in connected cars environment is an accurate and robust positioning system that can work in all environments. Current location technology is dominant by the popular Global Positioning System (GPS).

Lie Group Harmonic and Statistical Analysis of Human Movement

Statistical and harmonic analysis of 3-dimensional motions of objects or humans are instrumental to establish how these motions differ, depending on various influences. When such motions involve no tearing, they may be described

Fine-Grain MPI Year Two

The demand for computing power has been rapidly growing over the last decade. The ability to efficiently utilize computing resources and improve the productivity of applications is necessary for the competitiveness of any industry and it will become more critical as the demand for computational resources increases. The computer hardware sector has seen rapid advances with the introduction of multicore and many-core processors and has introduced many challenges for the software development community to efficiently utilize the new architectures.

In-building Ultra Wideband Pseudolite Localization and Tracking System

The goal of the proposed research project is to develop a suitable solution to realize high precision real-time navigation and positioning for in-building environments with different constraints. The research proposes the development of methods and technology road map of ultra wideband pseudo-satellite localization in various modes of applications. The project will help our industrial partner Pawaya Wireless Inc. develop inexpensive high-precision wireless positioning products.
