This thesis investigated the feasibility of using the Dedicated Short Range Communication (5.9 GHz) protocol as a vehicular wireless system for transmitting elderly drivers‘ vital signs in medical emergencies. Existing vehicular communication systems, physiological monitors, and low-power...
Using Adapted Primary Literature to Test the Understanding of Concepts of Evidence in Chemistry held by First Year University Undergraduate StudentsDownload
Adapted primary literature (APL) is a genre which still retains the canonical form and authentic results of primary literature, but is made readable and understandable for a target population which in this study consists of first-year university undergraduate students. The rationale underlying...
Using Alternate Omega-3 Polyunsaturated Fatty Acid Sources for the Enrichment of Broiler Meat and Table EggsDownload
A series of experiments was conducted to explore the potential of including novel sources of omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (n-3 PUFA) in broiler and laying hen diets. Camelina cake (CC), the co-product remaining after pressing of oil from camelina seed for biofuel production, was fed to...
Anthropogenic disturbance is known to have negative population consequences and alter animal behaviour, and a growing body of research on the effects of anthropogenic noise is finding similar negative impacts on wildlife. Noise in natural environments can mask important acoustic signals used for...
Using Biomolecular Recognition to Selectively Self-Assemble Microscale Components onto Patterned SubstratesDownload
Modern nanofabrication technology in the 21st century has continued year after year to push the boundaries of what is possible at the nanoscale. With the advent of molecular electronics, single electron devices, nanoelectromechanical systems (NEMS), and other nanotechnologies, the near future...
Resource constraints, e.g. lack of time and human resources, is a major issue in software testing practice. In short, testers have limited time to test software systems. Therefore, managers are expected to spend more resources on software components that are likely to contain many defects. To...
Using Computer Simulated Science Laboratories: A Test of Pre-Laboratory Activities with the Learning Error and Formative Feedback ModelDownload
The use of computer simulated science laboratories (CSSL) to assess science knowledge and skills has become popular in recent years (Bennett, Persky, Weiss, & Jenkins, 2007; PhET, 2014). These digital environments are often superior to face-to-face environments in which traditional science...
A high level of programming knowledge is needed in order to script a video game. This prevents video game design from being accessible to non-programmers. ScriptEase is a tool that was designed to solve this problem. While ScriptEase has been shown to be accessible to 10th grade English students...
Using Discrete Choice Models to Estimate Non-market Values: Effects of Choice Set Formation and Social NetworksDownload
Discrete choice models are often used to estimate non-market values. In standard models, individuals make choices considering all possible alternatives. However, in reality, the set of alternatives individuals consider may differ. Moreover, these choice sets may be influenced by the individual's...
Mountain pine beetle (Dendroctonus ponderosae; MPB) is a natural disturbance agent in western North America. Recently, MPB has been found beyond its historical habitats and threatening jack pine (Pinus banksiana) in western Canadian boreal forests. Jack pine is a fire-dependent species that...
