I finished my BSc dissertation in the Summer of 2010, the abstract is as follows:
Embedded electronics are increasingly becoming part of everyday life, with almost all home appliances now utilising embedded microcontrollers and integrated circuits. Increasingly these embedded electronics also feature network controllers, leading to the proliferation of embedded networks.
This paper documents the creation of a system which makes use of both embedded electronics and embedded networks with an aim to connect medical professionals with their patients in a more seamless fashion.
I’m now gearing up to undertake my MSc Dissertation. As such I have just finished a (very!) rough proposal and am now seeking supervisors, the summary is as follows:
To develop a prototype electronic security system that utilises RFID technology, allowing for tracking of users throughout the system, fine grained control of user access, and extensive reporting capabilities.
