Below is a list of topics for student assignments that Mantena wishes to highlight. In addition, we are positive to inquiries about both Master and Bachelor theses. Contact us.

– Passive sonar array for state estimation of rolling stock 
Mantena is interested in developing a sonar array that detects the location of noise sources in bogies (train chassis) or other material being tested in dynamic test bench. A system mounted in a dynamic test bench that can generate a high-resolution noise map to provide a visual indication of where noise and vibrations occur in the material. Click here
– Improved user interface and improved PID auto tuning or alternate compressor test bench algorithm.

The compressor test bench is programmed with NI LabView. The user interface in the compressor test bench is today made up of standard NI building bricks, which gives the program an older appearance. It is desirable to have a more modern FLAT GUI design that is intuitive to understand for each user, with an emphasis on intuition and ease of use. We would also like a study on improved regulator algorithm for the compressor test bench to be made. PID controller or fuzzy logic controller, with auto tuning algorithm. The regulator algorithm should regulate a throttle valve to simulate filling of any pressure tank from 0 to 10 bar.
