Effectiveness of biofuel development for Indonesia
Despite offering new opportunities in promoting rural development, enhancing energy security and a way to improve environmental condition, developing biofuel has several issues. The research question in this thesis is ...
An assessment of climatic and anthropogenic impacts on the hydrological system of Himayat Sagar Catchment, India
Many regions of the world face water shortages that are likely to become more severe in the future. Multiple drivers are responsible for the hydrological change in catchments and these can be exogenous (change in climate ...
Optimising low-cost GNSS positioning for road constrained vehicles using a Bayesian filter
Co-operative Intelligent Transportation Systems (C-ITS) are a growing industry that have significant implications for the safety and efficiency of on-road vehicle use. Accurate and reliable vehicle positioning is a critical ...
Buildings featuring irregularities in the gravity load carrying frames in low-to-moderate seismicity regions
The need of building to have column-free space at certain storeys due to architectural and aesthetical reasons, or a change in the functionality of adjacent storeys and building facility requirements, explain why many ...
Estimating plant water stress and evapotranspiration using very-high-resolution (VHR) UAV imagery
Adequate and timely irrigation of crops is critical to maximise productivity and water use efficiency. Thus, having a capability of monitoring crop water status based on real-time monitoring can promise precise irrigation ...
Podium and transfer structure interference on seismic shear demands of tower walls in buildings
The preference for the mixed-use of buildings has led to a paradigm shift in the way buildings are designed, and their geometries are determined. A podium-tower building configuration that caters for both commercial and ...
An innovative model for structural health assessment of bridges
Urban transport infrastructure plays a key role in the Australian economy. Articulated trucks are now used to transport approximately 80% of the freight in Australia, and the average loads carried by these trucks have more ...
Robust and accurate localization by visual-inertial odometry
Real-time, accurate and seamless localization forms the backbone of various location-aware applications such as autonomous navigation. For instance, in a driverless car or in an autonomous robot operating outdoors or ...
Seismic assessment of reinforced concrete buildings in Australia including the response of gravity frames
Over recent years there has been a growing need to assess the seismic performance of potentially vulnerable buildings in Australia in order to make informed risk mitigation decisions. The aim of this study has been to ...
Indoor localization supported by landmark graph and locomotion activity recognition
Indoor localization is important for a variety of applications such as location-based services, mobile social networks, and emergency response. Although a number of indoor localization systems have been proposed in recent ...
