by Dr Amin Malek Mohammadi

The University of Nottingham Malaysia Campus (UNMC) team won one Gold, one Bronze and the Special Award from Malaysian Research and Innovation Society (MyRIS) at the recent International Engineering and Technology Exhibition (IETE 2015).

UNMC team consists of Dr. Amin Malek Mohammadi, Dr. Mohanna, Mr. How Chin Joe, Mr. Ong Jun Yang, Mr. Mohamed Asaad Elsherif, Mr. Nguyen Dong Nhat, Mr. Lee Han Lin and Ms. Trishna Saeharaseelan

“UNMC is a research intensive university.  I am very proud of this achievement by my students after competing against more than 40 excellent teams from various universities” said Dr Amin Malek Mohammadi head of Electrical and Applied Mathematics Research Division.

Researchers from the Electrical Systems and Applied Mathematics Research Division, Faculty of Engineering at UNMC won the awards for the following two projects:

Design and Implementation of an Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV)

An AUV is ultimately an unmanned underwater vehicle that is able to navigate autonomously. This submersible vehicle is used with Ultrasonic Sensors to create a mapping of submerged elements and the underwater terrain. After its task completion, the AUV returns to its default location, or home location, with the data collected stored on a memory storage device.

Towards Green Optical Communication Systems: Mapping Multiplexing Technique (MMT), a Power Efficient Transmission Format for High-Speed Optical Networks

MMT challenges the high power consumption issue that exists in high speed short-haul data centers.  The N-channel MMT scheme provides means for increasing both, the information capacity and power efficiency of high speed optical transceivers
