Doing a Master’s thesis on a research topic allows you to try new ideas, challenge your creativity and to get a taste of what research is all about. If things go well, you might also get the change to present your work at some international conference or workshop.
Below are some ideas for thesis work. If you are interested in one of these or have some ideas of your own, don't hesitate to write me an email or drop by my office. You can also look at the list of completed theses where I have been supervisor or examiner.

Description (click to expand)
This project is performed in the context of the ELIN project, which will be launched in Linköping during 2019. ELIN combines an autonomous bus with a digital infrastructure, includin a Control Tower functionality, which enables external control of the bus from a command centre. This creates new possibilities as well as new risks, in particular relating to cyber threats. The purpose of this Master thesis project is to investigate possible software architectures (including mechanisms such as remote attestation) that could potentially make such systems more resilient to various forms of cyber attacks. The project includes several industry partners such as Ericsson, Combitech, and Transdev, and you will have controlled access to the autonomous bus to collect data and perform experiments.

Cooperative intelligent transportation systems are envisioned to improve road traffic efficiency, safety, and comfort for passengers. One of the applications currently under development is vehicular platooning. Vehicular platooning, sometimes referred to as a “road train”, is a group of vehicles that travel closely together under control algorithms that adjust the vehicle laterally and longitudinally. The algorithms leverage information shared through network protocols specially designed for vehicular environments such as IEEE 802.11p. In addition to lateral and longitudinal controllers, vehicles must employ a protocol to standardize message formats used for forming or disrupting platoons, for example. In Europe, a standardization effort called ENSEMBLE is currently ongoing with actors such as Volvo and Scania in Sweden. ENSEMBLE’s primary goal is to work towards a ‘multi-brand’ platooning solution in which communication is standardized and therefore trucks from multiple manufacturers can co-operate in platoons. The initial task in this Master Thesis Project is to model the current protocol proposal from ENSEMBLE in the simulation framework Plexe-Veins, which provides realistic mobility and network models of vehicular communication. The model will be used to study interesting aspects such as security of platoons (e.g. is it possible to attack it or how to make them more secure), safety, and efficiency (e.g. is there any circumstance in which the protocol overloads the data channel).
Description (click to expand)
Passwords are commonly used to protect user goods online. As such, they should be secure, not predictable, different, and memorizable. Password management systems exist helping users to do that, even integrated in OSs, browsers, etc. These systems keep passwords locally stored, eventually encrypted, or in a third party storage system (e.g., Google, Apple, etc.), with no control on the password usage and with a master password as single point of failure. Telefónica patented a solution for generating and managing robust password, unknown to the user, without storage (i.e., the passwords are generated on the fly at each usage), and allowing only their usage on secure and controlled webpages. The student is required to (i) design an algorithm complying with the patented solution, (ii) implement a Proof of Concept of it, including a proper and motivated tuning of the password generation algorithm, and (iii) evaluate the solution complexity and strength and comparing it to the available alternatives.

Autonomous cars are already on the horizon. The next generation of self-driving cars will interact with other vehicles using wireless communication to coordinate their actions and and enable more efficient traffic solutions than human drivers can accomplish. However, distributed coordination is still an open problem, especially in situations where the local actions taken by vehicles propagate to other parts of the system causing congestion and unpredictable delays.
This Master’s thesis project will consider an abstraction of this problem in a theoretical setting to investigate the asymptotic behaviour of distributed coordination under varying circumstances. Consider a system composed of N mobile agents that move around in a directed graph G=(V,E). At any point in time a node v ∈ V can contain either zero or one mobile agents. Obviously |V| ≥ N.
Each agent can communicate locally with agents located in neighbouring nodes, and nodes up to h hops away (h being a parameter under study). Moreover, for each agent a there is a set of nodes Va such that the agent wishes to visit all nodes in Va as many times as possible. The performance of an agent is determined by the number of visits to the node in Va with the least number of visits.
The task of this thesis project will be to investigate the bounds on achievable performance under varying conditions (starting with a restricted setting, and using increasingly complex models). A suitable student should be comfortable with mathematical reasoning, and interested in theoretical analysis of distributed algorithms.
