Technical talk

Thursday, April 13th, 2017

IEEE Young Professionals and Women in Engineering, Windsor Section jointly presents:

Applications of Data fusion techniques in Industrial Control

About the Topic: Performance assessment and condition monitoring are important steps toward optimisation design of control loops. To provide better understanding of a given scene or process with less uncertainties could be achieved using data fusion approaches. Information/data Fusion is the merging technology which deals with the synergistic combination of data made available by various knowledge sources such as sensors. The use of sensor/data fusion concept has advantages such as “Redundancy”, “Complementary”, “Timeliness” and “Less Costly Information” which will be addressed.

Speaker: Dr. Behzad Moshiri, Adjunct Professor in Electrical Engineering at University of Waterloo

Speaker Bio: Behzad Moshiri received his B.Sc. degree in mechanical engineering from Iran University of Science and Technology (IUST) in 1984 and M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in control systems engineering from the University of Manchester, Institute of Science and Technology (UMIST), U.K. in 1987 and 1991 respectively. Dr. Moshiri has been as adjunct professor in department of electrical and computer engineering at university of Waterloo since 2014.

His fields of research include mechatronics, automation, advanced industrial control design, smart sensing system design, broad spread of applications of “sensor/data fusion” as well as “information fusion” concepts in mechatronics, process control, robotics, information technology, bioinformatics, biomedical engineering and intelligent transportation systems.

Technical Talk

Tuesday, March 28th, 2017

IEEE Computer Society South East Michigan Chapter presents:

Automotive Functional Safety an ISO 26262 perspective

About the Topic: For road vehicles, ISO 26262 is currently the standard for functional safety in the automotive electronics domain. The standard applies to all activities during the safety life cycle of safety-related systems. At the concept phase of ISO 26262 is the risk assessment process that focuses on possible hazards caused by malfunctioning behaviour of E/E safety-related systems and mitigating them through the identification of safety goals. The design phase includes System, Hardware and Software Development; whose requirements are derived from the safety goals. ISO 26262 also prescribes the functional safety management to be followed during the safety life cycle and does support distributed development.

Speaker: Rami Debouk, Staff Researcher at General Motors Global R&D

Speaker Bio: Rami Debouk is a Staff Researcher at General Motors Global R&D Center in Warren, Michigan, USA which he joined in 2000 after receiving his Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. His research interests are in system safety methods and techniques, system of systems, failure diagnosis, and fault tolerant systems.
