 Capstone Design Projects for Term 121

​Starting from semester 121, EE department will offer EE 411 in the following new format. 

  • ​EE 411 will be offered in small-size sections of 8 ​students per section. 
  • The course instructor will be the project advisor. 
  • Students will need to register in the section that offers the project which you like. 
 
The following table shows the proposed projects for semester 121, along with the names of the instructors (project advisors) and the sections numbers.
 
Sec. #​ Advisor​ Max students​ Project Title​ Project Description​ Pre-requisites​
  1​     Dr. AL-ABEEDI​     ​8   Video over Relay based Cellular Networks Recent wireless standards, such as 4G LTE and IEEE 802.16-m, have adopted relays as a cost effective solution for improving the coverage as well as the the throughput. The objective of this project is to build a simplified relay based cellular network using a software of student’s choice, then analyze the performance of Video traffic over such a network.   EE370   ​
  ​2 Dr. AL-ABSI   ​8 Design and implementation of an automated conveyor line ​To design and implement a conveyor line for filling tablets in bottles. Bottles will be moved in the line, filled with tablets, moved on and next will be processed and so on. The number of tablet can be programmed as required. 303, 434  
Designing transceiver for power line communication ​The project is to design a system of circuits to communicate over power lines. it can be within a single house or in a network of houses depending on the power lines system arrangement EE 303  
  ​3 Dr. AL-ABEEDI   ​8 MAC performance study of WiMAX Network Enhanced with Relay Stations ​The objective of this project is to build a simplified relay based WiMAX network using a software of student's choice and study the performance of the MAC layer.   EE370  
  ​4   Dr. HAMMI OUALID   ​8 Digitally Controlled Dual Band RF Power Meter This project aims at developing a prototype of a digitally controlled dual-band RF power meter. Commercial RF circuits will be used to build the system level architecture of the RF front-end. This architecture will be optimized through simulations. An envelope detector and a microcontroller board will be added. The microcontroller board will be programmed to provide a display of the measured signal strength. Finally, the prototype will be used to perform measurements of wireless signal strength. Knowledge of communication systems, EE441 / EE407 will be useful.
  ​5 Dr. ABIDO   ​8 Design and Implementation of a Multifunction Protective Relay Overcurrent relays are the most common type of protective relays. They are being used for protecting Feeders, Motors, Generators, Transformers,…etc. Microcontrollers or real time platforms are being used nowadays by all manufacturers for realizing such relays.​ EE390, EE 466 (or currently registered)  
  ​6 Dr. HAMMI OUALID   ​8 Wireless Jamming System This includes the design of a noise source, the system level design of the RF front end. Also, simulations of the effects of the interferences on the performance of several wireless communication standards will be carried out. A prototype will be assembled and tested.​ Knowledge of communication systems, EE441 / EE407 will be useful.
  ​7 Dr. SHARAWI   ​8   Wireless Tracking of a Moving Vehicle In this project the team will develop a wireless platform for tracking the movement of a moving target (a remote controlled car/quad-rotor). The wireless based tracking platform will consist of an inertial measurement unit (IMU) that is wireless compatible with a ZigBee transceiver. The team will program the modules, integrate them within the moving target, and develop a graphical user interface (GUI) using MATLAB or C to plot the trajectory of the moving target. Basic Programming skills, Good Electronics design capabilities
  ​8 Dr. CHOKRI   ​8 Design and implementation for Maximum Power Point Tracking for PV generator It is about maximizing the output of a Loaded Photovoltaique Generator. The Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) system is an online tracker to extract the highest possible power through switching devices that control the generator output operating voltage of the PV generator. SIMULINK simulation will be the base of the design of the required circuit followed by a laboratory implementation and testing of the design.​​   ​The background will be given during the regular meeting
  ​9 Dr. SHARAWI   ​8 A Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) Code Generator In this project, the students will design and implement a variable GNSS code generator based on a predefined code set (Gold Codes, Kasami, Binary Offset Carrier –BOC) and based on some a selection criteria, the codes will be generated and output from the FPGA board. The design will be made using Verilog HDL, and will be synthesized on the FPGA board. The spectrum of the various codes will be then investigated as well.​ Basic Programming skills, Good Electronics design capabilities
