[su_tabs][su_tab title=”About”]


Muftah Fraifer received his B.Sc. degree in Electronics Engineering from University of Benghazi, Libya in 2005 and obtained his M.Sc degree in Electronics from Nottingham Trent University , UK in 2008. He is currently pursuing a PhD within the Interaction Design Centre at University of Limerick.

Project details:

.Design, implement, verify, validate, test and evaluate an smart parking system utlizing CCTVs  facilitating provision of mobile services within a university campus.

.Elaborate a full functional description of a pilot mobile service, e.g. the Car Parking Locator & Reservation service, and describe the system entities’ interaction.

.Design the underlined network architecture and describe its functioning collaboration in the service provision. Investigate optimization algorithms, e.g. for finding the ‘best’ parking space in accordance with the user context. Consider and compare possible system implementation approaches; select and justify the use of one of them.

.Build and demonstrate a fully operational ‘proof-of-concept’ prototype system. Run system trials with users and collect feedback from them for possible enhancement of the system.


Engineering theoretical issue (s) addressed:

Formal system designing; optimization of system parameters;    integration of different technologies into a complete system; engineering methods for system verification, validation, testing, and evaluation.
