Abstract

In this era of technology, the use of automatic control systems can provide some benefits in terms of efficiency, accuracy, and safety compared to that of manual workmanship. This study tries to create a control system that can perform automatic plant watering system to help us in watering plants. In this study, weather forecast and weather shield are integrated with microcontroller as to gather weather information in the area around the plants. The information is then compared for decision making in automatic watering. This study is derived from the growing popularity of the hobby to grow plants in community. However, the constraint of time and distance in growing plants becomes one of the problems for people who are busy with their activities so that they do not have time for watering plants.

Abstract

LDPC is one of channel coding technique which can achieve the nearest to the shannon limit. The focus of this paper is to give improvement for LDPC error correcting process using message passing algorithm. This works used FPGA Cyclon II for implementing the process. This paper worked with two different LDPC matrix, matrix (8, 16) and matrix (24, 48). Matrix (24,48) had wc = 4 and wr = 8. Matrix (8, 16) had wc = 2 and wr = 4. The comparison of these two matrix would present the effects in the error correcting decision for message passing algorithm and the effect for implementing the algorithm on FPGA Cyclon II. This research purpose was to prove message passing algorithm can provide more than one bit error correction.

Abstract

One of the popular remote sensing technique is remote sensing using radar technology such as Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR). In this paper, a compact SAR prototype transmitter was designed so it could be installed in small platform. This SAR transmitter was designed to generate a frequency modulated continuous wave (FMCW) using direct digital synthesizer (DDS) integrated with RF front end modules such as analog filter and power amplifier. The bandwidth of the radar spectrum is 10 MHz, and the carrier frequency used is 1.27 GHz. The L-Band has been chosen as the carrier signal in order to detect the target (trees). The payload was designed for aerial vehicle, hence the choice of components should be as small as possible. The FMCW-SAR transmitter was implemented by using DDS module AD9850 and integrated with another RF component. The FMCW-SAR transmitter produces the transmit power about -17.67 dBm.

Abstract

Ultra-wideband radar has been widely used for various purposes, including detection of human vital signs, small displacement detection, and ground penetrating radar. In order to work properly, it requires an antenna with a wide bandwidth. This study reports an investigation of a bandwidth enhancement method by combining the U-shaped microstrip patch antenna with the Defect Ground Structure (DGS). In this research, the antennas are operated at 5.8 GHz. The results show the combination of U-shaped patch and DGS produce twice bandwidth performance compared to the one without DGS. In our study the diamond shape DGS gives the best performance among various DGS structures.

Abstract

Manufactured goods distribution system is a very important part in the production chain. Delivery of goods from one point to another point affects the effectiveness of the production process. At the moment, most companies whose business are in manufacturing require automation, including distribution of goods. One application of automation in the distribution of goods is AGV (Automated Guided Vehicle). Companies need AGV that can move in complex pathways. The movement includes a selection of AGV path traversed and AGV terminal position. This research discusses the design and implementation of an AGV navigation and position information settings. AGV navigation uses fuzzy logic in its algorithm, while position setting of the AGV uses Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) to recognize the position of the robot at each terminal. From the testing result, the system obtained a success rate of 96% in movement of the robot from one terminal to another terminal using the RFID. RFID can be read at both speed of the robot i.e. 6.9 and 7.13 m/min

Abstract

This research is about an effort to increase the robustness of the Minimum Variance Distortionless Response (MVDR) algorithm to noise by using a chirp signal for direction of arrival estimation (DoA). DoA is a part of radar capability to estimate the angle of arrival on the object under observation. The conventional MVDR as proposed by J. Capon, was designed to work with the monochromatic sinusoidal signal. Even though the conventional MVDR work on low SNR up to 0 dB, however, the conventional method does not work well if chirp signal is used instead of monochromatic sinusoidal signal. The usage of MVDR chirp signal is essential in the case of a very low SNR environment such as in long distance object detection, which is typically more than 10 km. The problem to be solved in this research is how to modify the MVDR algorithm so that it can work well on chirp signal. In this research we offer a modified MVDR algorithm by adding the matched filter and the phase detector components before the MVDR algorithm is applied. Matched filter is responsible for the timing of the chirp signal detection, and the phase detector is to estimate the time delay estimation of each chirp signal from each antenna with a reference signal, which correspond to the phases. Based on the phase estimation, sinusoidal signal is generated and fed to the MVDR algorithm. On the technical aspect, the chirp signal is sent intermittently with a duration of 100 ?s and repeated in time interval of 1 ms. The antenna sensor using an array of Uniform Linear Array (ULA) which consist of N-elements. Computer simulation shows that the modified MVDR using the chirp signal improve the robustness of the algorithm up to -30 dB, while on the other hand the classical MVDR works only up to 0 dB SNR. -30 dB of SNR is the minimum requirement of 3D Radar existing.

Abstract

The implementation of OFDM results in relatively high peak-to-average power ratio (PAPR) due to IFFT process to generate orthogonal subcarriers. A number of studies have attempted to apply various techniques to minimize PAPR by apllying the Wavelet transform as a substitution for Fourier transform. Another technique used to reduce the PAPR is clipping. In this thesis, the clipping technique was applied on the Wavelet based OFDM in mobile WiMAX standard to obtain better performance. The results indicate that Wavelet based OFDM has better immunity to noise and more resistant to Doppler shift than Fourier based OFDM. Sym 7 with Classical clipping and CR 1.2 can be selected and applied on wavelet-based OFDM in mobile WiMAX.

Abstract

To communicate with the ground station, nano satellite requires a communication system that serves in real time to regulate the procedure with ground station. One of the missions of nano satellites is the retrieval of telemetry data from sensors that transmitted using APRS technology (Automatic Packet Reporting System). We designed a prototype to monitor sensor by utilizing the APRS. Real-time sensor data was transmitted to monitor through radio using AX.25 protocol. On the transmitter side, an APRS Tracker integrated with a microprocessor ATMEGA 1284P to modulate the AFSK signal. The existence of this AFSK signal is used to transmit and receive telemetry data using handy talky. We use a computer with AGWPE software to demodulate the AFSK signal and UI-View32 to show the telemetry data. The results showed that the telemetry data can be displayed on the receiver side and acquired in real time. The accuracy of temperature sensor received by the receiver is 92.97%, and humidity sensor is 90.57%. There was a delay of 1 second for the reception of telemetry data directly.

Abstract

Communication systems for devices moving at high speed are suffering from error-floor due to the Doppler effect. This paper proposes a simple narrowband communication systems for high speed flying devices for critical applications such as missile and drone. To make the system simple, we consider Repetition codes and slight increase of the number of pilot symbols such that the system can predict accurately the fast-changing channel due to time-selective fading. The equalizer in this paper is designed according to the addition of the pilot symbols so that the system works at a maximum speed of 450 km/h to make successful operation for missile and drone before they are taken down by the enemy. Computer simulations are used to evaluate the performance of the proposed communication systems. The operating frequency is industrial, scientific, and medical (ISM) band, where binary phase shift keying (BPSK) modulations are used with Repetition codes being the channel coding. The bit error rate (BER) performance is evaluated under additive white Gaussian noise (AWGN) and Rayleigh fading channels. The results confirm that excellent BER performances are obtained having error-floor less than 10????4 making many applications, including image transmission, are possible, which are great for high speed flying devices even with Repetition codes and simple zero forcing (ZF) equalizer. The results of this study are expected to help the development of future communication systems for missile, drone, and airplane applications.

Abstract

This research is aimed to analyze and simulate the temperature distribution in heat sink CPU processor. The study analyzes the heat absorption from the heat source to the bottom of the heat sink, the conduction process, and the forced convection process. All processes are simulated with software Comsol Multiphysics 4.4 to obtain the optimal heat sink design. The simulation is performed by varying the number of fins, the fin thickness, the air gap between two fins, the fin surface area, and the convection coefficient. The optimal design is found for heat sink with 40 pieces fins, fin thickness of 0.4 mm, air gap of 2.4 mm, fin surface area of 9425 mm2, and the convection coefficient of 5.26 W/m2K. Further simulation shows that PID control improved the forced convection process. A proportional control (P) is reasonable enough to achieve a settled convection process. A settling temperature occurs at 241 s after heat is applied to the system. This is faster than non-controlled convection process which requires 1600 s instead. Additional integration and derivative controls will increase stability at later time.
