  • Radical plumbers and playpumps 

    Borland, Ralph (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Electronic & Electrical Engineering, 2011)
    This thesis analyses the PlayPump, a water pump powered by a children's roundabout, which is designed for use in the developing world. The PlayPump is analysed as an example of 'design for development', an area of current ...
  • Radio Access Network and Spectrum Sharing in Future Mobile Networks 

    KIBILDA, JACEK (2016)
    Future mobile networks will be characterized by wide-spread resource sharing, and a more nuanced view of what it means to offer a mobile service. The traditional view of a mobile network as a system that simply delivers ...
  • Reconfigurable OFDM systems 

    Nolan, Keith E. (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Electronic & Electrical Engineering, 2005)
    Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) is a multi-carrier wireless transmission technique. OFDM is used for robust, high quality and high data-rate music, voice, images, video, news and data broadcasts. It is ...
  • Reconfigurable software radio systems 

    Mackenzie, Philip (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Electronic & Electrical Engineering, 2004)
    Software radio has been heralded as a significant evolutionary step for wireless technology as it allows dedicated analogue radio hardware to be replaced with flexible digital signal processing. Due to current technological ...
  • Rendezvous and coordination in OFDM-based dynamic spectrum access networks 

    Sutton, Paul (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Electronic & Electrical Engineering, 2008)
    This dissertation shows that intentionally embedded cyclostationary signatures provide a robust and flexible technique for overcoming the challenge of network rendezvous and coordination in emerging Dynamic Spectrum Access ...
  • Segmentation and inpainting for stereoscopic videos 

    Raimbault, Félix (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Electronic & Electrical Engineering, 2015)
  • Segmentation of textured images on three-dimensional lattices 

    Ranguelova, Elena Boykova (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Electronic & Electrical Engineering, 2003)
    The development of supervised segmentation algorithms for textured images existing on three-dimensional (3-D) lattices is the central theme of this thesis. The current state of the art in 3-D segmentation has been reviewed, ...
  • The sense ensemble; An approach to music composition for deaf and hearing alike 

    HIGGS, GEORGE CHARLES (Trinity College Dublin. School of Engineering. Discipline of Electronic & Elect. Engineering, 2018)
    Effective music composition approaches for the deaf are investigated. After a review of existing methods for deaf musical engagement, the reasons for music being popularly regarded as an auditory-centred experience are ...
  • Shape models for image segmentation in microscopy 

    Pan, Kangyu (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Electronic & Electrical Engineering, 2013)
  • Spaciousness control for sound field recording and reconstruction 

    Conceição, Marco (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Electronic & Electrical Engineering, 2015)
    Auditory Spaciousness' is a perceptual characteristic which has been recognized as being an important aesthetic feature of music presentations of various types. Most previous research has been focused on the identification ...
  • Spectre of the commons : a political economy of radio regulation in the communism of capital 

    O'Dwyer, Rachel (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Electronic & Electrical Engineering, 2014)
    This thesis performs a critique of the political economy of mobile networks through the theoretical framework of the communism of capital. It identifies the economic centrality of social production to the contemporary ...
  • Spectroscopic investigations of SiGe nano-structures 

    McCarthy, John Matthew Anthony (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Electronic & Electrical Engineering, 2007)
    This work investigates the growth of several novel structures using a variety of spectroscopic techniques. Strained Si caps deposited on a relaxed SiGe layer are grown with resulting dislocations found to be perfectly ...
  • Statistical signal processing techniques for visual post-production 

    Pitié, François (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Electronic & Electrical Engineering, 2007)
  • Temporal discrimination thresholds as an endophenotype in adult-onset primary torsion dystonia 

    Bradley, David (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Electronic & Electrical Engineering, 2012)
    Adult onset primary torsion dystonia (AOPTD) is the most common form of dystonia and is an autosomal dominant disorder with markedly reduced penetrance. Most AOPTD patients therefore present as "sporadic" cases. Disordered ...
  • The application of digital signal processing to the modelling and alleviation of auditory impairment 

    O'Reilly, Derek B. (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Electronic & Electrical Engineering, 2001)
    This work is concerned with the development of digital signal processing models of the unimpaired and impaired human auditory system with a view towards the development of signal processing strategies for the alleviation ...
  • The composition and performance of spatial music 

    Bates, Enda (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Electronic & Electrical Engineering, 2009)
