High Performance Computing for Real Time Modelling and HiL of Complex Transportation and Control Embedded Systems

IKERLAN

START: 09/2017

OPEN
High Performance Computing (HPC) is an area of technology that provides simulation solutions for complex problems through parallel computing solutions, using clusters, supercomputers and FPGA-based solutions. This technological area may be used for the running of accurate real-time models of physical systems (e.g. wind turbines, trains, machinery), subsystems and interfaces between subsystems, as well as their fast implementation. A specific example is the avionics sector at “Iron...

Development of Monitoring Systems and Prognosis of Production Means for their Application in Industry 4.0 Environments

IKERLAN

START: 09/2017

OPEN
The term Industry 4.0 is associated with the so-called fourth industrial revolution. This revolution poses the definition of a virtual world, one in which information and communications technology and the physical world of machines have become the same. The perfect synchronisation of the real and the virtual world will open up new possibilities for industry. The continuous exchange of real-time data allows for a much higher level of intelligence and greater individualised automation.

Deterministic communications for industrial control

IKERLAN

START: 09/2017

COVERED
The aim of the thesis is to establish a hybrid architecture (wireless and wired) for industrial communication networks for applications of control / sensors with real time requirements. In the scope of this thesis we will consider the concepts of synchronisation, architecture / topology and low consumption. The objective is to achieve a heterogeneous communications network that would allow for high priority and performance...

Definition and implementation of methodology for characterisation and classification of anti-SCA countermeasures in FPGAa

IKERLAN

START: 09/2017

OPEN
Side-channel attacks have been successfully used to break systems that are protected with encryption. Said attacks exploit variations in non-functional properties with some type of dependency on the data to be extracted (normally, the encryption key), such as for example variations in the power consumption of the execution time of a program. The most common means of protection against these attacks is the reduction or elimination of said variations, which can have an impact on efficiency,...

Detection of anomalies in SW systems

IKERLAN

START: 09/2017

OPEN
The principal objective of the thesis is to use automatic verifiers to test properties of different types of model checking (MC).The safety-critical software systems that are implemented in different sectors such as aeronautic, railway or medicine must be rigorously verified before being launched.The formal verification techniques aim to formalise and automate the software verification process and, in this way, make it safer.The MC technique is a formal technique to check...

Multidisciplinary Integration of Ultra Low Power Consumption Microsystems for Industry 4.0 environments

IKERLAN

START: 09/2017

OPEN
Within the current industrial context, the creation of autonomous microsystems for industrial environments is essential for positioning the industry within the new strategy of Industry 4.0 and the Internet of Things. Their integration will have a broad impact on the creation of new products, business models and cloud services. These new elements require increasingly smaller systems (miniaturisation), along with more features (intelligence) and lower power consumption (autonomy), which can...

Advanced CBM systems: lift use case

IKERLAN

START: 09/2017

OPEN
Maintenance services account for a significant part of the operating cost of high-value systems, especially when possible failures result in large down times. This is the case in the elevator industry. Condition based maintenance strategies provide a cost efficient way to cope with the safety and reliability requirements of such systems. These strategies monitor the condition of the system to evaluate the maintenance requirements leading to a predictive maintenance. Condition monitoring...

Prediction of remaining useful life for fatigue-damaged structures

IKERLAN

START: 09/2017

OPEN
A condition monitoring system that supervises the local stresses produced by mechanical loads at certain critical components is of great interest in order to obtain an accurate fatigue life prediction of industrial machinery under real operations.The placement of strain gauges at these critical components would allow capturing the real strain/stress at the foreseen critical points. For different reasons, it is not always industrially feasible to install a strain gauge at each...

Development of methodologies for prediction of cracks growth in metal structures under fatigue stress

IKERLAN

START: 09/2017

COVERED
The design of highly important structural components (such as pressurised containers, machinery parts, transport, energy, and so on) which is normally done using the specific codes applicable in each sector, and which are usually based on criteria of tension and/or stress. Quite often, these elements can suffer cracks due to the actual manufacturing process or incorrect dimensioning, which leads to a need to assess the safety of the components through the...
