Title: Neuroscience Inspiration for Biological and Electrical Space Microgrids

Abstract: This talk will begin by introducing the control of microgrids, the parallelisms with the human brain and the research for possible sources of inspiration in the last frontiers of neuroscience. Then, control in electric power systems of satellites and space platforms will be presented, showing approaches that are extended from terrestrial microgrids and explaining the differences and challenges when it comes to apply them out in space. Further, multi-microgrid systems will be discussed for moon craters in future lunar manmade bases. Finally, the extension from the hierarchical control of microgrids to bioastronautics in the control of closed ecological systems to support with oxygen, water, and food to the astronauts and thus creating new ecosystems for the moon and future mars bases.

Title: Real-Time Monitoring of Evaluation Landslide on IoT Platform using LoRA

Abstract:In the context of an early warning system for landslides, monitoring of prone areas is a longlasting process, little human intervention, and a resource less environment. Data changes in the monitoring area may be noticed in many days, months, or years depending on the weather characteristics. Therefore, a frequent and large amount of data of monitored area is not required to send on a cloud server. Moreover, Long-range communication provided comprehensive spectrum communication protocol and low power consumption with fewer data rates. Over the advantage of LoRa technology, we designed a customized sensor node and gateway node to monitor the changes periodically with low energy power consumption. We evaluated the distinct metrics of spreading factor, sensitivity, time-on-air, energy consumption, link budget, and battery life of sensor and gateway nodes. Finally, this study concludes with challenges faced in real-time in which the sensor data received via a customized sensor node and gateway on the cloud server
