Context- and Template-Based Data Compression Approach to Improve Resource-Constrained IoT Systems Interoperability

Author: Jorge Berzosa Macho
Thesis director Roberto Cortiñas, UPV/EHU y Luis Gardeazabal, UPV/EHU

In this thesis, we present a novel data compression approach for text-based data formats, namely Context- and Template-based Compression (CTC), which is specially designed taking into account the limitations of resource-constrained devices and networks.

Traceable onboard metrology for machine tools and large-scale systems

Author: Unai Mutilba Larrea
Thesis director Dr. José Antonio Yagüe, Universidad de Zaragoza y Dr. Eneko Gómez Acedo, Tekniker

This PhD study aims to improve the accuracy of MTs and also to develop knowledge for traceable coordinate measurement machine (CMM) measurements on MTs. The technology to run a dimensional measurement on an MT already exists but the knowledge to do traceable measurements is under research, as it is reported in this thesis.
