  1. 1. Design, implementation and evaluation of a daylight estimation tool using 3D city model data

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Author : Peter Nezval; [2021]
    Keywords : 3D city model; CityJSON; solar energy; free and open-source software; 3D feature extraction; solar urban planning; sustainable urban development; geomatics; Earth and Environmental Sciences; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : Solar energy is an important component of sustainable urban development. However, it is still not reaching its full potential due to several reasons. One of them is a lack of free tools based on open geodata capable of estimating solar energy (daylight) metrics on building features, e.g. READ MORE

  2. 2. Customization of Ibex RISC-V Processor Core

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för elektro- och informationsteknik

    Author : Rahul Raveendran; Subhajit Bhuinya; [2021]
    Keywords : Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : Despite, the fact that we now have highly powerful and reliable CPU cores from System on Chip (SoC) Intellectual Property (IP) giants, the silicon industry is still leaning toward an efficient CPU core with an open-source Instruction Set Architecture (ISA) at the moment, where RISC-V has proven to be extremely successful. The aim to customize an open-source processor core, as described in our thesis subject, in order to find a cheaper alternative to high-priced CPU cores that can be tailored for specific applications is one of the key contribution of our thesis.

  3. 3. RTIC - A Zero-Cost Abstraction for Memory Safe Concurrency

    University essay from Luleå tekniska universitet/Institutionen för system- och rymdteknik

    Author : Henrik Tjäder; [2021]
    Keywords : Embedded systems; real-time; concurrency; RTIC; RTFM; Real-Time For the Masses; Real-Time Interrupt-driven Concurrency;

    Abstract : Embedded systems are commonplace, often with real-time requirements, limited resources and increasingly complex workloads with high demands on security and reliability. The complexity of these systems calls for extensive developer experience and many tools has been created to aid in the development of the software running on such devices. READ MORE

  4. 4. Validating results from the Molten Salt Reactor Experiment by use of turbulent CFD simulations : A study of a modified U-tube shell-and-tube primary heat exchanger and radiator with molten salts

    University essay from Luleå tekniska universitet/Rymdteknik

    Abstract : Background Nuclear reactors utilizing molten fuels rather than solid fuels show a massive advantage in energy yield, waste handling and safety features. The only successful reactor utilizing a molten fuel was called the ‘Molten Salt Reactor Experiment’ (MSRE), built and operated in the Oak Ridge national laboratory (ORNL) in Tennessee, U.S.A.

  5. 5. Live 3D imaging quantum LiDAR

    University essay from KTH/Tillämpad fysik

    Author : Theodor Staffas; [2021]
    Keywords : lidar; otdr; snspd; lidar; otdr; snspd;

    Abstract : In this thesis, I demonstrate a single­photon Light Detection And Ranging, (LiDAR)system operating at 1550 nm capable of reconstructing 3D environments live withmm resolution at a rate of 400 points per second using eye­safe laser pulses. Thesystem was built using off­-the-­shelf optical components and analysis was performedusing open-­source software. READ MORE
