Electrified powertrain configuratorJernej Kosi
, 2019, master's thesis
Abstract: This master’s thesis describes the development, use and simulation results of the Excel based electrified powertrain configurator tool. First, different electrified powertrains are introduced and divided based on the powertrain type. Within the scope of this master’s thesis, we focused on battery electric vehicles. A mathematical vehicle model was developed to describe different battery electric vehicle powertrain architectures. The mathematical vehicle model was implemented in Excel. The performance of the Excel tool was demonstrated by simulating various driving cycles. To evaluate the accuracy and usability of the tool, simulation results from Excel tool were compared with those from AVL Cruise.
Keywords: electrified powertrain, vehicle longitudinal dynamic, driving simulation, Excel, tool development

Developing and Controling Robot Arm Model with Avnet Microzed Development BoardMarko Purić
, 2019, master's thesis
Abstract: This master's thesis describes development and building of the SCARA robot arm with two rotational joints. Using SolidWorks, model of the SCARA robot was built, serving as development tool for the physical model. Controlling the SCARA robot was done with MicroZed development board, based on the Zynq-7000 SoC, which consists of a field-programmable gate array (FPGA) and ARM Cortex-A9 processor.
Purpose of this master's thesis was to build a SCARA robot and utilize the FPGA for interaction with peripherals, ARM Cortex-A9 processor was used for implementing a cascading control system. This master's thesis is the foundation for future work involving advanced control techniques consisting of nonlinear controllers, which are developed in the Laboratory for Cognitive Systems and Mechatronics at Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at Maribor.
Keywords: SCARA robot, cascade control system, FPGA, Zynq-7000 SoC, MicroZed development board

Abstract: In the world’s largest longitudinal survey, the Global Entrepreneurship Monitor (GEM), we have been exploring important features of entrepreneurship for 21 years, with particular emphasis on the earliest stages when business opportunities are perceived and individuals decide whether to engage in entrepreneurship. GEM was designed to (1) measure differences in attitudes towards entrepreneurship, activities and aspirations of individuals in as many countries as possible, (2) identify factors that encourage or hinder entrepreneurial activity, especially in relation to societal values, personal characteristics and the entrepreneurial ecosystem, (3) provide a platform for assessing the impact of entrepreneurial activity on economic growth in a given economy, and (4) identify the necessary policy measures to strengthen entrepreneurship. With the help of this research, we better understand society's attitude towards entrepreneurship and characteristics of the individual, such as perception of one's own abilities for entrepreneurial activity, ability to perceive opportunities, entrepreneurial intentions, and fear of failure. As GEM monitors entrepreneurial activity throughout the phases of the life cycle (nascent, new businesses and established businesses, discontinuation), according to impact (high growth, innovation, internationalization) and by type (early-stage entrepreneurship activity, employee entrepreneurship activity), the picture is much richer than the one that is based only on data gathered from ordinary statistical databases.
