Implementation of an advanced and secure system using wireless medical devices in healthcare settings
(Massey Printery, 2013)
Computer-based and wireless patient monitoring systems are emerging as a low cost, reliable and accurate way of healthcare delivery. Advanced and secure solutions such as electronic records, mobile systems and cloud computing ...
An exploration of theoretical concepts and methods for assessing risk impacts on the variability between design stage elemental cost plan and tender sum
(Commission of the International Council for Research and Innovation in Building and Construction, 2014)
Reliable prediction of final tender sums of building projects from the cost plan has posed challenges for construction industry practitioners in New Zealand, especially Quantity Surveyors. No matter how much care and effort ...
Inverting non-minimum phase FIR transfer functions
(Scentific and Academic Publishing, 2013)
The approximate solution to the inverse of a non-minimum phase finite-impulse response (FIR) transfer function is given. Such a problem arises in many areas which include room-acoustics and channel equalisation. Unlike ...
Global solar radiation prediction using artificial neural network models for New Zealand
(Solar 2014 Conference & Expo, 2014)
In this study, nonlinear autoregressive recurrent neural networks with exogenous input (NARX) were used to predict global solar radiation across New Zealand. Data for nine hourly weather variables recorded across New Zealand ...
The perceptions of retentions as held by clients, contractors and subcontractors
(The Australasian Universities Building Education Association (AUBEA), 2013)
The payment mechanism of construction projects is different compared to other industries. For every payment made to a contractor or subcontractor a sum of money is held back. This deduction is a phenomenon peculiar to the ...
Sleep apnea: a model of airway drying during n-PAP therapy
(Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences, the University of Auckland, 2013)
A framework for product development
(NTNU/DTU, Technical University of Denmark, 1999)
Since the introduction of Integrated Product development in 1985, industry has widely been using this model to understand and articulate their design, business and production activities. Recently, however, the picture has ...
California Dreamin' - inspiring innovative car design and development
(School of Art and Design, AUT University, 2013)
Why is California the home of the advanced design studios of every major automotive manufacturer? Take a road trip with Tony Robotham, Senior Lecturer at AUT University’s School of Engineering, and discover the influence ...
Visual Impact Assessment - There's more to it than meets the eye!
(Mechanical Engineering Publications Ltd, 1992)
The visual impact of a wind farm is one of the major causes of concern for all current U.K. wind farm projects. Often visual impact is the singlemost important issue on which a planning application is judged. A fair and ...
Progress in the development of a video-based wind farm simulation technique
(International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), 1992)
The progress in the development of a video-based wind farm simulation technique is reviewed. While improvements have been achieved in the quality of the composite picture created by combining computer generated animation ...
