Analysis of accelerometric signals during gait cycle
Nemčeková, Petra ; Sekora, Jiří (referee) ; Králík, Martin (advisor)
Kinematic analysis of gait is one of the most important examination of lower limbs. One of the possibilities of this analysis is measuring by accelerometer. This thesis is focusing on construction of a functional device, which measures an angle of ankle, hip and knee joint during gait and developing application, which enables measurement and displays measured data. Results from device were compared with kinematic norm used in ortopedy.

Measuring and Data Logging of Air Parameters
Kaziměrčíková, Lada ; Králík, Martin (referee) ; Sekora, Jiří (advisor)
The goal of the Bachelor thesis is to design a device for measuring humidity, temperature and CO2 concentration with implemented data logging. The Raspberry Pi computer was chosen as the control unit for the design of the device with three sensors, DHT11 for measuring temperature and humidity, NDIR MH-Z16 for measuring the CO2 concentration and NOVA PM SDS011 for detection PM10 and PM2,5 particles. The measured data from the sensors are stored in the MySQL database and are displayed on the web using PHP scripts and active Javascript elements. The Bachelor thesis also focuses on the analysis of air quality and the substances contained in the air with presented research for sensors used for measuring the concentration of these substances.

Use of digital accelerometers in Linet bed controls
Dvořák, Ferdinand ; Sekora, Jiří (referee) ; Kolářová, Jana (advisor)
The subject of this bachelor thesis is a design of methods for accelerometer usage in medical bed controllers in order to eliminate the activation button. In the introduction the Linet company is presented and the issue of legislation and safety of controling the medical beds is briefly discussed. This part is followed by a theoretical chapter considering MEMS technology and accelerometers. The metodology of reference and simulative signals acquisition is designed. These signals are then analysed. In following chapters the particular methods of solutions are presented. The comparison of the presented methods and the final summary of the thesis is included in the conclusion.

Active upper limb prosthesis
Brázdil, Štěpán ; Sekora, Jiří (referee) ; Harabiš, Vratislav (advisor)
This thesis focuses on the field of prosthetics, especially the issue of active prosthesis control. The goal is to perform a comprehensive analysis, design and construction of a prosthetic system that, based on the analysis of sensory data (such as an EMG signal from multiple channels), can correctly classify a gesture and a subsequent moving of the limb model. The first parts of the thesis are an important description of the critical components and important parameters of the active prosthesis system, including comparison and selection of available open source solutions. Next is a proposal of interconnection and description of individual hardware and software components. It also includes documentation of the real constructed system, which consists of the InMoov robotic hand, the Raspberry Pi controller and accessories. The results are critically evaluated in the last part of this work.
Active prostetic hand
Brenner, Maximilian ; Sekora, Jiří (referee) ; Harabiš, Vratislav (advisor)
BACKGROUND: Based on mainly vascular diseases and traumatic injuries, around 40,000 upper limb amputations are performed annually worldwide. The affected persons are strongly impaired in their physical abilities by such an intervention. Through myoelectric prostheses, affected persons are able to recover some of their abilities. METHODS: In order to control such prostheses, a system is to be developed by which electromyographic (EMG) measurements on the upper extremities can be carried out. The data obtained in this way should then be processed to recognize different gestures. These EMG measurements are to be performed by means of a suitable microcontroller and afterwards processed and classified by adequate software. Finally, a model or prototype of a hand is to be created, which is controlled by means of the acquired data. RESULTS: The signals from the upper extremities were picked up by four MyoWare sensors and transmitted to a computer via an Arduino Uno microcontroller. The Signals were processed in quantized time windows using Matlab. By means of a neural network, the gestures were recognized and displayed both graphically and by a prosthesis. The achieved recognition rate was up to 87% across all gestures. CONCLUSION: With an increasing number of gestures to be detected, the functionality of a neural network exceeds that of any fuzzy logic concerning classification accuracy. The recognition rates fluctuated between the individual gestures. This indicates that further fine tuning is needed to better train the classification software. However, it demonstrated that relatively cheap hardware can be used to create a control system for upper extremity prostheses.
New features for real-time positioning system locator
Studený, Jakub ; Sekora, Jiří (referee) ; Kolářová, Jana (advisor)
The diploma thesis deals with the detection of falls and impacts, based on data obtained from inertial sensors, and by measuring the distance using a laser. The aim of this thesis is to extend the functionality of locators from Sewio. The thesis describes the procedure for designing algorithms for detection of falls and impacts. Then there is a procedure for development of hardware and software solution, for laser distance measurement by locator, together with presentation of achieved measurement results realized by locator after implementation of proposed solution. The work also emphasizes the minimization of energy consumption of individual solutions. In conclusion, there is a discussion of achieved results with evaluation of efficiency and usability of proposed solutions.
