Balac, Katarina ; Malek, Miroslaw (Dir.) ; Prevostini, Mauro (Codir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Università della Svizzera italiana, 2019 ; 2019INFO009.

This work focuses on optimizing node placement for time-of-flight-based wireless localization networks. Main motivation are critical safety applications. The first part of my thesis is an experimental study on in-tunnel vehicle localization. In- tunnel localization of vehicles is crucial for emergency management, especially for large trucks transporting dangerous goods such as inflammable...

Malware detection at runtime for resource-constrained mobile devices : data-driven approach

Milošević, Jelena ; Malek, Miroslaw (Dir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Università della Svizzera italiana, 2017 ; 2017INFO012.

The number of smart and connected mobile devices is increasing, bringing enormous possibilities to users in various domains and transforming everything that we get in touch with into smart. Thus, we have smart watches, smart phones, smart homes, and finally even smart cities. Increased smartness of mobile devices means that they contain more valuable information about their users, more decision...

Online disturbance prediction for enhanced availability in smart grids

Kaitovic, Igor ; Malek, Miroslaw (Dir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Università della Svizzera italiana, 2017 ; 2017INFO011.

A gradual move in the electric power industry towards Smart Grids brings new challenges to the system's efficiency and dependability. With a growing complexity and massive introduction of renewable generation, particularly at the distribution level, the number of faults and, consequently, disturbances (errors and failures) is expected to increase significantly. This threatens to compromise...
