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.

Author: Patricia López Alonso
Thesis director Leire Etxeberria, Mondragon Unibertsitatea y Xabier Elkorobarrutia, Mondragon Unibertsitatea

Como resultado principal de esta tesis, se presenta una metodología para asistir el desarrollo de sistemas innovadores, heterogéneos y confiables. La metodología propuesta combina y adapta: modelos para el desarrollo de nuevo producto; aproximaciones para el desarrollo de sistemas confiables; enfoques para el desarrollo de sistemas complejos; y técnicas de control estadístico de procesos e indicadores clave de rendimiento.

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.

Progress in industrial photogrammetry by means of markerless solutions

Author: Gorka Kortaberria Berriozabal
Thesis director Alberto Tellaeche Iglesias (Universidad de Deusto), Rikardo Minguez Gabiña (UPV/EHU)

The main objective of this thesis is to develop and characterize the scope of a novel and edge-cutting approaches based on markerless photogrammetric solutions. Hence, the presented study is focused on going beyond the state of art limitations of industrial photogrammetry avoiding or reducing considerably the employment of artificial targets.
