  • Healthy Transportation Choices with IoT and Smart Nudging 

    Mehmood, Fazal (Mastergradsoppgave; Master thesis, 2021-06-01)
    Modern technology has provided people with ease of living but at the same time has given birth to the problems of equally modern nature. For instance, high reliance on private transportation has resulted in unintended consequences such as high level of air pollution and congestion in urban cities. Another main disadvantage that is often overlooked is related to the rise of several noncommunicable ...

How the system presents the nudges and what psychological effects are used is critical to influencing the user towards the nudging goal. The goal of the thesis is to find, implement ...
  • General Monitoring of Observational Units in the Arctic Tundra 

    Karlstrøm, Erlend Melum (Mastergradsoppgave; Master thesis, 2021-05-15)
    Climate change is going to change what we know about the arctic tundra. Patterns in the behavior of the wildlife that lives there are predicted to undergo a shift, and it will therefore be important to have reliable sources of empirical data, so that we can understand how these developments are playing out. The arctic tundra is remote and difficult to deploy sensing instruments on, and signal ...
  • Clock Synchronization between Observational Units in the Arctic Tundra 

    Karlstad, Sigurd (Mastergradsoppgave; Master thesis, 2021-05-15)
    The arctic tundra is one of the ecosystems that is most affected by climate changes. The effects of these changes on the wildlife in the arctic are therefore critical to monitor. To monitor the changes, small computing devices with sensors and cameras, known as Observational Units, can be used. Using a cluster network of interconnected observational units, so that data can be reported from the ...
  • Sorterius: Game-inspired App for Encouraging Outdoor Physical Activity for People with Intellectual Disabilities 

    Stellander, Magnus (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2021-05-15)
    People with intellectual disabilities have difficulties in reaching the World Health Organization's (WHO) suggested level of physical activity. Previous research shows that participating in physical activities often is related to self-efficacy in a physical activity setting and personal motivation. As physical activity has significant effects on physical and mental health, this thesis aimed to develop ...
  • Keeping Up with the Market: Extracting competencies from Norwegian job listings 

    Fagerbakk, Anton Garri (Mastergradsoppgave; Master thesis, 2021-05-15)
    The Norwegian labour market is under continuous change because of fast-paced innovation in technology. It is therefore vital for educational institutions curricula to reflect the changing requirements to keep the population hireable and provide employers with a highly adaptable workforce. There are no complete systems that let us analyse and extract this information about the labour market efficiently. ...
  • GeneNet VR: Large Biological Networks in Virtual Reality Using Inexpensive Hardware 

    Martínez Fernández, Álvaro (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2020-11-15)
    Biological data is often visualized using networks. However, these networks face problems such as information overload, high interconnectivity, and high dimensionality. Existing approaches try to solve these problems by reducing the interactivity in favor of presenting more information or by using expensive hardware. This thesis aims to solve them using Virtual Reality (VR) and the Oculus Quest, an ...
  • Improving the text compression ratio for ASCII text Using a combination of dictionary coding, ASCII compression, and Huffman coding 

    Haldar-Iversen, Sondre (Mastergradsoppgave; Master thesis, 2020-11-15)
    Data compression is a field that has been extensively researched. Many compression algorithms in use today have been around for several decades, like Huffman Coding and dictionary coding. These are general-purpose compression algorithms and can be used on anything from text data to images and video. There are, however, much fewer lossless algorithms that are customized for compressing certain types ...
  • Privacy-preserving smart nudging system: resistant to traffic analysis and data breach

    A solution like Green Transportation Choices with IoT and Smart Nudging (SN) is aiming to resolve urban challenges (e.g., increased traffic, congestion, air pollution, and noise pollution) by influencing people towards environment-friendly decisions in their daily life. The essential aspect of this system is to construct personalized suggestion and positive reinforcement for people to achieve ...
  • Humanoid Robot handling Hand-Signs Recognition 

    Amberkar, Mayuresh (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2020-08-16)
    Recent advancements in human-robot interaction have led to tremendous improvement for humanoid robots but still lacks social acceptance among people. Though verbal communication is the primary means of human-robot interaction, non-verbal communication that is proven to be an integral part of the human interactions is not widely used in humanoid robots. This thesis aims to achieve human-robot interaction ...
  • Information Collection Platform for Smart Nudging. A Microservice-Based Approach. 

    Hansen, Raymon Skjørten (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2020-06-30)

    In this thesis we describe how we designed, built, deployed, and improved upon a robust hardware- and software solution, tailor-made to this scientific question. During the course of this project, we created three distinct versions and we have conducted two deployments of the sensor nodes in the Arctic tundra. The node is able to measure CO2 , temperature, and humidity, in addition to monitoring an ...
  • Verification of the Chord protocol in TLA+ 

    Lund, Jørgen Aarmo (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2019-05-15)
    In traditional software engineering methodologies, software correctness is established through testing and progressive fault mitigation. Safety properties are established by demonstrating that a sufficiently large number of test cases fail to violate them. In contrast, formal verification methods permit a systems design process where desired safety properties are stated outright in the system ...
  • Increasing physical activity for individuals with intellectual disability through indoor bike cycling and exergaming 

    Berg, Valter (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2019-06-01)
    Studies reveal that individuals with intellectual disabilities have more sedentary lifestyles than the general population. Regular physical activity is of both medical and social importance, reducing risks of cardiovascular diseases and obesity. Health organizations recommend that everyone should at least engage in 150 minutes of physical activity each week because of the beneficial health effects. There ...

  • Incremental Information Retrieval. Finding new information by registering and ignoring already seen search results 

    Johannessen, Erlend (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2017-05-15)
    When searching the internet today we want immediate answers. We often search for a person, or a solution to a problem, or some topic we are interested in. The result quality of this kind of search is pretty good, most of the time we get the answers we need. The results, though, seems to be minor variations on the same results. But what if the search for information is of a different nature, more ...
