Research Expertise

Description

Current research interests include new parallel architectures for the solution of matrix based numerical problems. These architectures are implemented on state of the art FPGAs and aim to improve over the performance of conventional PCs in solving large Finite Element problems. Further research work is being conducted on developing delay tolerant sensor networks for applications in lake water quality monitoring and recording of acoustic noise. Novel strain sensors are also being developed based on Surface Acoustic Wave (SAW) devices - so called wireless strain gauges. Additionally a new real time monitoring system to measure forces transmitted to road surfaces by HGVs has been developed and is about to be piloted. Development of low cost air quality monitoring system for deployment in a dense wireless grid is ongoing

Projects

  • Title
    • A Numerical Accelerator for Computational Fluid Dynamics
  • Summary
    • Solving problems in computational fluid dynamics (CFD) is numerically intensive but amenable to 'divide and conquer' parallel algorithms. In this project, the most numerically expensive elements of the solution algorithms which typically solve a large set of linear equations will be implemented at a hardware rather than a software level. This will reduce the run times by a factor of between 100 and 1000, when compared to current techniques. To achieve this an FPGA based numerical accelerator comprising multiple parallel computational units (CU) will be implemented to accelerate the solution of these problems. The accelerator will be a co-processor to a workstation and will operate transparently to the user. It will feature 'on the fly' hardware re-configurability wherein the hardware may be customised to meet the specific demands of a problem.

  • Title
    • Delay Tolerant Sensor Networking - SeNDT
  • Summary
    • Delay tolerant networking covers constrained networks where unavoidable communication delays (hours/weeks) are such that normal "chatty" Internet protocols (especially TCP) cannot be used. The "canonical" examples of delay tolerant networking are interplanetary and sensor networks. This project builds upon ongoing work in interplanetary networking by applying this work to build, from commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) products and freely available technology, an innovative architecture which allows novel sensor network applications to be easily and cheaply deployed. The project emphasises the evidentiary (security) requirements that must be met for such data to be credible. The result is a proof-of-concept, secure, delay-tolerant, sensor network.

    • Real Time Weigh in Motion of HGVs
  • Summary
    • The objective of the project is to develop and field test a low-cost system for static and dynamic axle load measurement for real-time weigh-in-motion for heavy goods vehicles (HGVs). The system will be integrated with a commercial 'off-the-shelf' (COTS) unit that provides GPS capability and is interfaced to a Geographical Information System (GIS). The integrated system will provide real-time data on loads transmitted to road surfaces.

  • Title
    • Finite an Iterative Matrix Mathematics Accelerator (FIAMMA)
  • Summary
    • Currently the performance of individual science/engineering workstations is limited by silicon I.C. technology and CPU architectures. This means that to solve complex numerical problems in aeronautics, civil and chemical engineering product designers must use multiple workstations or a high-performance computer. Either option is expensive in terms of both capital and maintenance, restricting the amount of computer modeling which can be performed by an individual scientist or engineer. This proposal aims to deliver 30-60 double-precision GFLOPs (Giga Floating-Point Operations per second) of computing power to the desktop using FPGA technology rather than custom silicon (to reduce design and deployment costs) for the price of a high-end graphics card, in an era when a single Pentium 4 processor can deliver 6 GFLOPs at 3GHz, and realistically could deliver twice this in the next generation. To make this computing power available to engineers and scientists the proposed hardware accelerator will be complemented by software libraries for C, C++ and Fortran as well as for commercial packages (e.g. FLUENT, ANSYS) removing the need to rewrite legacy software.

    • Dev-SeNDT - Developing Sensor Networking with Delay Tolerance
  • Summary
    • Dev-SeNDT is geared towards the "meta-objective" of developing SeNDT to the point where it will be licensed and we aim to negotiate such licenses. The specific, verifiable project objectives to enable this are: 1. Running significant pilots: water quality monitoring on Trinity and Carr's lakes in Co. Cavan, and noise monitoring in an urban area to demonstrate that the technology meets the challenges posed more effectively than competing approaches. a. One highly specific and testable subsidiary objective here is to run a lake water quality monitoring network for an entire winter with only solar power and without exhausting batteries. b. Demonstrating that the SeNDT software and technology platform is applicable in diverse environmental monitoring applications by showing that both boats and busses (or equivalent) can be used as data-mules without unnecessary software or hardware changes. 2. Demonstrating that SeNDT is ready-to-license for existing or new product lines. a. Integration of the SeNDT technology with a commercial-grade GIS and database back-end - necessary for practical application development and deployment. b. Decreasing the unit cost of SeNDT nodes via a cost-reduction re-design of the hardware to take advantage of current products, and refining the system requirements to better fit with our more mature understanding of the real-world application needs. 3. Researching whether a simple webcam based approach can be used to ameliorate the maintenance and robustness problems with chemical sensors in lake water quality applications. 4. Promoting the use of, and continuing to add to the state of the art in, delay tolerant networking.

  • Title
    • Wireless Strain Gauges
  • Summary
    • Wireless, passive strain sensors can be fabricated using Surface Acoustic Wave (SAW) technology. The project seeks to prove the concept that wireless, passive strain sensors based on SAW devices can exceed the performance of conventional strain gauges and lead to a lower measurement system cost in many applications.Some application areas are tool condition monitoring, remote strain sensing and control of rotating machinery. The performance of the SAW devices as strain sensors and the wireless interrogation systems will be established by this work. The commercial viability as a replacement for conventional strain sensors will also be established along with some exploitation routes.

    • A New Instrument for Measuring Fish Statistics
  • Summary
    • The aim of the project is to develop a robust and low cost fish measuring board. The board will incorporate state of the art technology, will be simple to use and very robust. In addition it will be much cheaper than EMBs on the market at the moment (the costings for these EMBs are presented in Table 1). The target cost is €1000. The detailed design of the system will be driven by user requirements, which will be determined at the start of the work programme. The project will design a custom magnetic measurement sensor and a hand-help interrogation device, which will contain all the intelligence of the system and will communicate wirelessly with a PC or other base station. The project will deliver the design of the new FMB including a number of working prototypes, design drawings, design for manufacture (DFM) and test (DFT) documentation and software.
