Personal profile

My specialist area of expertise is the design and development of real time instrumentation for industrial, automotive and laboratory use. This is best summed up as 'Measurement Automation & Control'. My research interests are the development of new electromechanical and electronic measuring equipment, and telematic solutions for industry.

Most of my research projects are based around the application of microcontrollers (e.g. PIC and 8051 architecture CPUs) to solve measurement and control problems. A number of my software and hardware designs are in production, including the control panels for Stoves gas cookers, Caradon Mira's Advantage shower range, Siemens VDO's fleetlogger and CAN product range, Quarndon Electronics CAN Controller units, the 'Fishphone' GSM telematic sensor/controller, Thorlux Lighting's distributed monitoring systems for lighting, and the Linear Skin Rheometer used to measure the visco-elastic properties of human skin.

I work part time for DMU. I also work as a self employed freelance design engineer in my specialist fields, offering design and consultancy service to industry world-wide.

  • Conic deformation of the subglottic mucosa and its impact on the aerodynamics of the airflow over the vocal folds
    Conic deformation of the subglottic mucosa and its impact on the aerodynamics of the airflow over the vocal folds Goodyer, E. N.; Muller, F.; Hess, M.; Kandan, K.; Farukh, Farukh Objective: This study mapped the variation in tissue elasticity of the subglottic mucosa, applied that data to provide initial models of the likely deformation of the mucosa during the myoelastic cycle, and hypothesised as to the impact on the process of phonation. Study Design: 6 donor human larynges were dissected along the sagittal plane to expose the vocal folds and subglottic mucosa. A Linear Skin Rheometer was used to apply a controlled shear force, and the resultant displacement was measured. This data provided a measure of the stress/strain characteristics of the tissue at each anatomical point. A series of measurements were taken at 2mm interval inferior of the vocal folds, and the change in elasticity determined. Results: It was found that the elasticity of the mucosa in the subglottic region increased linearly with distance from the vocal folds in all 12 samples. A simple deformation model indicated that under low pressure conditions the subglottic mucosa will deform to form a cone, which could result in a higher velocity thus amplifying the low pressure effect resulting from the Venturi principle, and could assist in maintaining laminar flow. Conclusions: This study indicated that the deformation of the subglottic mucosa could play a significant role in the delivery of a low pressure air flow over the vocal folds.

  • 3D non-invasive inspection of the skin lesions by close-range and low-cost photogrammetric techniques
    3D non-invasive inspection of the skin lesions by close-range and low-cost photogrammetric techniques Orun, A.; Goodyer, E. N.; Smith, Geoff In dermatology, one of the most common causes of skin abnormality is an unusual change in skin lesion structure which may exhibit very subtle physical deformation of its 3D shape. However the geometrical sensitivity of current cost-effective inspection and measurement methods may not be sufficient to detect such small progressive changes in skin lesion structure at micro-scale. Our proposed method could provide a low-cost, non-invasive solution by a compact system solution to overcome these shortcomings by using close-range photogrammetric imaging techniques to build a 3D surface model for a continuous observation of subtle changes in skin lesions and other features. The main research group is CCI in collaboration with HLS (School of Pharmacy) Open Access article
  • Texture based characterization of sub-skin features by specified laser speckle effects at λ=650nm region
    Texture based characterization of sub-skin features by specified laser speckle effects at λ=650nm region Orun, A.; Seker, Huseyin; Uslan, Volkan; Goodyer, E. N.; Smith, Geoff Objective: The textural structure of “skin age” related sub-skin components enables us to identify and analyse their unique characteristics, thus making substantial progress towards establishing an accurate skin age model. Methods: This is achieved by a two stage process. First by the application of textural analysis using laser speckle imaging, which is sensitive to textural effects within the λ=650 nm spectral band region. In the second stage a Bayesian inference method is used to select attributes from which a predictive model is built. Results: This technique enables us to contrast different skin age models, such as the laser-speckle effect against the more widely used normal light (LED) imaging method, whereby it is shown that our laser speckle based technique yields better results. Conclusion: The method introduced here is non-invasive, low-cost and capable of operating in real-time; having the potential to compete against high-cost instrumentation such as confocal microscopy or similar imaging devices used for skin age identification purposes.

  • The Anisotropic Elasticity of the Human Vocal Fold
    The Anisotropic Elasticity of the Human Vocal Fold Goodyer, E. N.; Gunderson, M.; Tateya, C.; Tataya, T.; Dailey, S. M. Objective: To verify the anisotropic nature of the vocal folds by reproducing an experiment led by Rholfs that measured vocal fold elasticity in the transverse and longitudinal directions. To present a physiological explanation of the measured phenomena using immunochemical results. Methods: 6 cadaveric human excised larynges were hemi-sectioned in the mid-sagittal plane exposing the vocal folds, and orthogonal measurements of tension made at 3 equally spaced points. Immunohistochemistry carried out by Ichiro Tateya was used to visualise collagens and elastins in the deep layer of the lamina propria. Results: The LSR results indicate that the measured elasticity of the vocal folds are highly anisotropic. The immunohistochemistry results show that there is a strong alignment of collagens and elastins along the longitudinal axis of human vocal folds. Conclusion: The measured anisotropic behaviour is due to the alignment of collagens & elastins in the lamina propria A review of the work carried out jointly with UKE Hamburg, which demostrated the anisotropic nature of the human vocal folds. This additional work presents collagen and elastin stains to support that research. APC paid for Open Access
  • Spectrum Occupancy Survey in Leicester, UK, For Cognitive Radio Application
    Spectrum Occupancy Survey in Leicester, UK, For Cognitive Radio Application Iliya, Sunday; Goodyer, E. N.; Gow, J. A.; Gongora, Mario Augusto Cognitive radio (CR) technology has emerged as a promising solution to many wireless communication problems including spectrum scarcity and underutilization. Knowing the current state of spectrum utilization in frequency, time and spatial domain will enhance the implementation of CR network. In this paper, we evaluate the spectrum utilization of some selected bands in Leicester city, UK; based on long time spectrum measurements using energy detection method. This study provides evidence of gross underutilization of some licenses spectrum which can be exploited by CR for efficient spectrum utilization.
  • Spectrum Hole Prediction And White Space Ranking For Cognitive Radio Network Using An Artificial Neural Network
    Spectrum Hole Prediction And White Space Ranking For Cognitive Radio Network Using An Artificial Neural Network Iliya, Sunday; Goodyer, E. N.; Gongora, Mario Augusto; Gow, J. A. With spectrum becoming an ever scarcer resource, it is critical that new communication systems utilize all the available frequency bands as efficiently as possible in time, frequency and spatial domain. rHowever, spectrum allocation policies most of the licensed spectrums grossly underutilized while the unlicensed spectrums are overcrowded. Hence, all future wireless communication devices beequipped with cognitive capability to maximize quality of service (QoS); require a lot of time and energartificial intelligence and machine learning in cognitive radio deliver optimum performance. In this paper, we proposed a novel way of spectrum holes prediction using artificial neural network (ANN). The ANN was trained to adapt to the radio spectrum traffic of 20 channels and the trained network was used for prediction of future spectrum holes. The input of the neural network consist of a time domain vector of length six i.e. minute, hour, date, day, week and month. The output is a vector of length 20 each representing the probability of the channel being idle. The channels are ranked in order of decreasing probability of being idleminimizing We assumed that all the channels have the same noise and quality of service; and only one vacant channel is needed for communication. The result of the spectrum holes search using ANN was compared with that of blind linear and blind stochastic search and was found to be superior. The performance of the ANN that was trained to predict the probability of the channels being idle outperformed the ANN that will predict the exact channel states (busy or idle). In the ANN that was trained to predict the exact channels states, all channels predicted to be idle are randomly searched until the first spectrum hole was found; no information about search direction regarding which channel should be sensed first.
  • Application of Artificial Neural Network and Support Vector Regression in Cognitive Radio Networks for RF Power Prediction Using Compact Differential Evolution Algorithm
    Application of Artificial Neural Network and Support Vector Regression in Cognitive Radio Networks for RF Power Prediction Using Compact Differential Evolution Algorithm Iliya, Sunday; Gongora, Mario Augusto; Goodyer, E. N.; Gow, J. A.; Shell, Jethro Cognitive radio (CR) technology has emerged as a promising solution to many wireless communication problems including spectrum scarcity and underutilization. To enhance the selection of channel with less noise among the white spaces (idle channels), the a priory knowledge of Radio Frequency (RF) power is very important. Computational Intelligence (CI) techniques cans be applied to these scenarios to predict the required RF power in the available channels to achieve optimum Quality of Service (QoS). In this paper, we developed a time domain based optimized Artificial Neural Network (ANN) and Support Vector Regression (SVR) models for the prediction of real world RF power within the GSM 900, Very High Frequency (VHF) and Ultra High Frequency (UHF) FM and TV bands. Sensitivity analysis was used to reduce the input vector of the prediction models. The inputs of the ANN and SVR consist of only time domain data and past RF power without using any RF power related parameters, thus forming a nonlinear time series prediction model. The application of the models produced was found to increase the robustness of CR applications, specifically where the CR had no prior knowledge of the RF power related parameters such as signal to noise ratio, bandwidth and bit error rate. Since CR are embedded communication devices with memory constrain limitation, the models used, implemented a novel and innovative initial weight optimization of the ANN’s through the use of compact differential evolutionary (cDE) algorithm variants which are memory efficient. This was found to enhance the accuracy and generalization of the ANN model
  • Range extended for electric vehicle based on driver behaviour
    Range extended for electric vehicle based on driver behaviour Al-Doori, Moath; Paluszczyszyn, D.; Elizondo, David; Passow, Benjamin N.; Goodyer, E. N. Driver behaviour has been considered one of the main factors that contribute to increase fuel consumption, CO2 emissions, traffic accidents and causalities. Thus, the concept of detecting and classifying driver behaviour i s vital when tackling these challenges. Recognition of the driver behaviour is a difficult task as in the real-world, the driving behaviour is effected by many factors e.g. traffic, road conditions, duration of the journey etc. Many approaches have considered the use of Computational Intelligence techniques, to develop a driver behaviour detection system. In this paper we concentrate on the impact of driver behaviour on the energy consumption and thereby on the range of electric vehicles. A new architecture is proposed to show how computational intelligence techniques could interact with the contextual information collected from the vehicle, the driver and external environment. A neural network model is used to classify the driver behaviour, and then this classification is used in a fuzzy logic controller to make balanced managements to the range extender operation.
