    abstract = {This paper presents a methodology for designing an automated quality-control procedure in manufacturing graphite commutators for automotive industry. It focuses on assessing the quality of the copper-graphite joints on the commutators, using an advanced approach involving computer vision, machine learning and optimization. Based on the features of the captured images, classification models are built as a basis of the quality-control procedure, and optimized with respect to their accuracy and complexity. The preliminary results indicate that the proposed approach successfully identifies the features important for quality assessment, but needs further improvements to be applicable in industrial production.},

    abstract = {The emergence of heterogeneous networks (HetNets) as an enabling paradigm for ubiquitous wireless communication has further reinforced the concept of medium range cooperation among the end users. This trend, along with the need for bidirectional communication, has triggered the design of new Network Coding (NC)-aided Medium Access Control (MAC) protocols that benefit both the throughput and the energy efficiency in the system. However, the vast majority of MAC protocols are usually designed and analyzed under simplified channel models, ignoring the severe effect of realistic physical (PHY) layer conditions on the wireless communication. In this article, we focus on the impact of correlated long-term slow fading (shadowing) on the performance of distributed wireless systems. As a case study, we discuss in detail the performance of a cooperative NC-aided Automatic Repeat reQuest (ARQ) MAC protocol under correlated shadowing conditions. Our results reveal interesting trade-offs between throughput and energy efficiency, highlighting the importance of considering the slow fading effect in the design of cooperative MAC protocols},
