  • Analytical Model of Time-Critical Wireless Sensor Network: Theory and Evaluation

    This chapter establishes a probabilistic fundamental quantitative notion for time-critical applications on real-time information transfer in multihop wireless networks. Those wireless sensor networks that are capable of providing bounded delay guarantees on packet delivery are referred to as real- time wireless sensor networks (RT-WSN). The preliminaries and assumption of the problem are clarified. The chapter derives a model for evaluating the reliable real-time (RRT) degree and presents the model validation for RT-WSN. The model can be extended to describe various aspects in the design of sensor networks, such as data aggregation or backpressure traffic mechanisms. Finally, the chapter deals with the cluster-based network architectures as well as the case where the network topology varies.

  • Clustering Sensor Data for Terrain Identification using a Windowless Algorithm

    In this paper we are interested in autonomous systems that can automatically develop terrain classifiers without human interaction or feedback. A key issue is clustering of sensor data from the same terrain. In this context, we present a novel offline windowless clustering algorithm exploiting time- dependency between samples. In terrain coverage, sets of sensory measurements are returned that are spatially, and hence temporally correlated. Our algorithm works by finding a set of parameter values for a user-specified classifier that minimize a cost function. This cost function is related to change in classifier probability outputs over time. The main advantage over other existing methods is its ability to cluster data for fast-switching systems that either have high process or observation noise, or complex distributions that cannot be properly characterized within the average duration of a state. The algorithm was evaluated using three different classifiers (linear separator, mixture of Gaussians and k-NEAREST NEIGHBOR), over both synthetic data sets and mobile robot contact feedback sensor data, with success.

  • High Temperature MicroelectronicsExpanding the Applications for Smart Sensors

    Solid-state sensors are attractive for many applications because they can include integrated circuitry as well as the transducer. This potential advantage is often lost because sensing requirements call for ambient temperatures higher than what the electronics can tolerate. In this paper we discuss process, layout, and circuit approaches for increasing the operating temperature of silicon circuitry to as high as 300°C. Development of high- temperature microelectronics on smart sensor chips will improve system reliability and extend the use of solid-state sensors into many new applications.

  • Conclusion

    Neural Networks for Pattern Recognition takes the pioneering work in artificial neural networks by Stephen Grossberg and his colleagues to a new level. In a simple and accessible way it extends embedding field theory into areas of machine intelligence that have not been clearly dealt with before. Following a tutorial of existing neural networks for pattern classification, Nigrin expands on these networks to present fundamentally new architectures that perform realtime pattern classification of embedded and synonymous patterns and that will aid in tasks such as vision, speech recognition, sensor fusion, and constraint satisfaction.Nigrin presents the new architectures in two stages. First he presents a network called Sonnet 1 that already achieves important properties such as the ability to learn and segment continuously varied input patterns in real time, to process patterns in a context sensitive fashion, and to learn new patterns without degrading existing categories. He then removes simplifications inherent in Sonnet 1 and introduces radically new architectures. These architectures have the power to classify patterns that may have similar meanings but that have different external appearances (synonyms). They also have been designed to represent patterns in a distributed fashion, both in short-term and long-term memory.Albert Nigrin is Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Science and Information Systems at American University.

  • About the Editors

    "IEEE Press is proud to present the first selected reprint volume devoted to the new field of intelligent signal processing (ISP). ISP differs fundamentally from the classical approach to statistical signal processing in that the input-output behavior of a complex system is modeled by using "intelligent" or "model-free" techniques, rather than relying on the shortcomings of a mathematical model. Information is extracted from incoming signal and noise data, making few assumptions about the statistical structure of signals and their environment. Intelligent Signal Processing explores how ISP tools address the problems of practical neural systems, new signal data, and blind fuzzy approximators. The editors have compiled 20 articles written by prominent researchers covering 15 diverse, practical applications of this nascent topic, exposing the reader to the signal processing power of learning and adaptive systems. This essential reference is intended for researchers, professional engineers, and scientists working in statistical signal processing and its applications in various fields such as humanistic intelligence, stochastic resonance, financial markets, optimization, pattern recognition, signal detection, speech processing, and sensor fusion. Intelligent Signal Processing is also invaluable for graduate students and academics with a background in computer science, computer engineering, or electrical engineering. About the Editors Simon Haykin is the founding director of the Communications Research Laboratory at McMaster University, Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, where he serves as university professor. His research interests include nonlinear dynamics, neural networks and adaptive filters and their applications in radar and communications systems. Dr. Haykin is the edito r for a series of books on "Adaptive and Learning Systems for Signal Processing, Communications and Control" (Publisher) and is both an IEEE Fellow and Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada.

  • Nature-Inspired Computing for Autonomic Wireless Sensor Networks

    This chapter presents how nature-inspired algorithms can affect the underlying design principles, enabling technologies, implementation, and management issues of autonomic wireless sensor networks (WSNs). It explains how WSN can benefit from autonomic mechanisms. The chapter provides a brief introduction to nature-inspired computing. It reviews several current nature-inspired techniques such as genetic algorithms (GA) and genetic programming (GP) to construct autonomic WSN. The chapter also presents the state-of-the-art techniques in those areas. It introduces several works such as bio-networking architecture, and biologically-inspired architecture for sensor NETworks (BiSNET) in which multiple biological principles are used to build fundamental frameworks for implementing autonomic WSNs. Self-organized mechanisms alleviate the dependence of sensors on a central controller and therefore help sensors to consume energy more efficiently in reaching the primary goal of WSNs to prolong their lifetime.

  • CramrRao lower bound for tracking multiple targets

    The derivation and computation of the theoretical Cramér-Rao lower bounds for multiple target tracking has traditionally been considered to be a notoriously difficult problem. The authors present a simple and exact solution based on the assumption that raw sensor data (before thresholding) are available. The multi-target tracking problem can then be formulated as recursive Bayesian track-before-detect estimation. The advantage of this formulation is that it is identical to nonlinear filtering, for which the exact posterior Cramér-Rao bound is already known. The paper presents several numerical examples in support of the theoretical findings.

  • Self organisation in a simple task of motor control

    This paper provides a mechanism that is able to self adjust a network that is used as a feedback controller in a motor control system. The following disturbances are considered: (1) synaptic drift, (2) a change in the slope of the sensor characteristics and (3) a shift along the ordinate in the sensor characteristics. I show that these disturbances can be counterbalanced, if the following conditions are fullfilled: (1) The sign of each synapse, i. e. being an excitatory or an inhibitory one, but not its exact value, is genetically determined. (2) The input characteristics are described by straight lines. (3) A mechanism is required that changes the input synapses of a cell in a way that the longterm influence of positive (excitatory) and negative (inhibitory) synapses cancel each other. (4) Both input values have to be distributed in a way that they vary around the same mean value. No explicit knowledge, neither concerning the shape of the trajectory nor concerning the involved sensor characteristics is required. This solution is possible because in the architecture proposed here each neuron is endowed with two inputs of opposite sign
