Publications and Research
Employing Integrated Logic Analysers and Virtual I/Os to Verify Soft Core Protocol Implementations
Imran Sheikh and M. Short

Novel Technique to conduct Conformance Testing on CAN

Conformance Testing Of Soft-Core CAN Controllers: A Low-Cost and Practical Approach
Imran Sheikh and M. Short

Published in Lecture Notes in Electrical Engineering, Vol. 85,Part 2, pp. 129-141. This is a Novel method for CAN Conformance Testing

Timely recovery from task failures in non-preemptive, deadline-driven schedulers
M.Short and Imran Sheikh

Published at IEEE ICESS 2010 conference, Bradford, UK. This paper presents a simple Overrun Detection and Recovery Mechanism (ODRM) that may help to alleviate single tasking issues in npEDF, by detecting task failures in such a fashion that subsequent task deadlines are not missed in a `domino-style' manner.

Improving Information Throughput and Transmission Predictability in Controller Area Networks
Imran Sheikh, M. Short and M.Hanif

Paper published at IEEE ISIE 2010 in BAri Italy. his paper will describe a modified CAN-like protocol controller that allows for larger payloads, coupled with modifications to the bit-stuffing and message transmission mechanisms to increase predictability.

Bandwidth-Efficient Burst Error Tolerance in TDMA-based CAN Networks
M.Short, Imran Sheikh and A. Rizvi

This paper has been awarded with James Hung best paper award at IEEE ETFA 2011. Abstract This paper employs a simple Markov model to describe burst error behaviors in a CAN network.

Analysis of Overclocked Controller Area Network
Imran Sheikh, M. Short and K.M. Yahya

Published in IEEE INSS 2010. The paper then presents an analysis of Overclocked CAN as to its expected performance in realtime applications.
