Student Projects: 2001

 Index 2001  Student Projects  NetOS 

If you are interested in attempting any of these projects then in the first instance contact Ian Pratt or Tim Harris, unless advised otherwise in the description.

We will be holding a meeting to describe these proposals in more detail at 2pm, Monday June 18th in TP4.

Mobile IP phone
Proxy for Mobile TCP/IP
Syncronization Compression
Crowbar: a protocol for opening holes in firewalls
Fun with solid-state accelerometers
Ethernet to IR transceiver
Location using AM radio signals: AM radio stations emmit a very stable carrier frequency from a fixed location (the transmitter). By using a digital radio to monitor phase changes in the carrier frequency, it should be possible to tell whether a mobile device has moved towards, or away from, the transmitter. By tuning into several AM stations simultaneously it should be possible to recover accurate position information.

This project could take two forms: A student interested in hardware could build the digital radio. Alternatively, the work could be done entirely in simultaion. Either way, there's loads of really cool DSP stuff to be done.

Mighty morphin' data structures
Fine-grained concurrency for the JVM
Workload monitoring
Simulation of active memories
Backwards debugger
Auto-tuning software
Executing code on untrusted servers
Meta NFS
An expert system for home automation
A peer-to-peer internet chat infrastructure
