    The goal of teaching is ultimately the learning achieved by the student. Active learning has proven to be extremely effective in inciting students to learn. Techniques to engage students in their learning and utilizing technologies that are inherently more natural to learning synergistically combine to enhance the learning experience. The workshop leaders share their own successes, as well as not ... View full abstract»

  • Inspiration from Nature for Voice Synthesis and Spectral Analysis

    Publication Year: 2006, Page(s):9 - 16
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (3333 KB)

    Electronic techniques for voice spectral synthesis and analysis have seen huge advances during the 20th century, most notably during its last quarter. The ubiquity of PC machines in the home and office that are more than capable of running spectral analysis algorithms has made it possible for many to make use of these techniques; indeed, there is much software available as freeware. This paper exp... View full abstract»

  • The Signal Processing Challenges of Flexible Radio

    Publication Year: 2006, Page(s):17 - 21
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (810 KB)

    Digital radio communication systems today typically operate well short of the theoretical capacity of the channel. This paper discusses how far greater bandwidth efficiency can be obtained on wireless channels through the use of adaptive procedures in the transmitter. These procedures require knowledge of the channel which is acquired at the receiver and fed back to the transmitter via a high inte... View full abstract»

    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (4370 KB)

    This paper examines the challenges of efficiently harnessing wave energy. A variety of energy conversion device types is reviewed and a generic heaving buoy device selected for detailed examination. A number of modelling and control challenges are detailed and a hierarchical control structure is indicated. Both potable water production and electricity generation are included as possible uses of su... View full abstract»

    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (335 KB)

    We consider a convex combination of matrices that arise in the study of communication networks and the corresponding convex combination of Kronecker squares of these matrices. We show that the spectrum of the first convex combination is contained in the spectrum of the second set and that the second largest eigenvalues coincide View full abstract»

  • Active Power Control for Ad-Hoc Wireless Networks

    Publication Year: 2006, Page(s):41 - 46
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1975 KB)

    This paper considers some of the systems science challenges that are posed when designing power aware wireless devices to operate within an ad-hoc network. Fundamental results from the robust control literature are used to assess whether safety critical tasks can be performed within such a network when power consumption is explicitly considered as an actively managed constraint. A focus of this wo... View full abstract»

  • Using User Perception to Determine Suitable Error Thresholds for Dead Reckoning in Distributed Interactive Applications

    Entity state update mechanisms are readily employed in distributed interactive applications (DIAs), particularly in networked games. These mechanisms use prediction techniques in order to reduce the number of update packets sent across the network, while maintaining a high level of consistency from the remote user's point of view. These mechanisms only send update packets when the local user's act... View full abstract»

    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (876 KB)

    In the Dublin Institute of Technology, an engineering programme in the School of Control Systems and Electrical Engineering has successfully incorporated a study skills module into the core curriculum. The purpose of having this module, Academic Development and Key Skills, in the first year of the programme is twofold. It is meant to assist the students with the transition from second level educat... View full abstract»
