Fourth International Conference on Electrical Safety in Hazardous Areas (Conf. Publ. No.296)

[] 1988 Fourth International Conference on Electrical Safety in Hazardous Areas, 1988


Discussion on “the wiring of large buildings for telephone service.” (Rhodes) Boston, Mass., June 27, 1912. (see proceedings for July 1912)

[] Proceedings of the American Institute of Electrical Engineers, 1912

Edwin M. Surprise I noted in reading Mr. Rhodes' paper, that in New York City, at least, and probably in other places where very large and tall office buildings are under consideration, the scheme of attenuation is employed; that is, a large cable is brought in at the basement and branches taken off from that cable at necessary intervals. In ...

Simulation of emergency evacuation in virtual reality

[{u'author_order': 1, u'affiliation': u'Department of Civil Engineering, Tsinghua University, Beijing 100084, China', u'full_name': u'Aizhu Ren'}, {u'author_order': 2, u'affiliation': u'Department of Civil Engineering, Tsinghua University, Beijing 100084, China', u'full_name': u'Chi Chen'}, {u'author_order': 3, u'affiliation': u'Department of Civil Engineering, Tsinghua University, Beijing 100084, China', u'full_name': u'Yuan Luo'}] Tsinghua Science and Technology, 2008

A virtual reality system was developed to simulate emergency evacuations during fires. The spreading of the flame and smoke in the virtual fire was modeled based on numerical fire simulations, so that the conditions are similar to real life. A multi-grid, multi-base-state database model was used to overcome the disadvantages of traditional smoke spreading simulations. Textured images and particle systems ...

Managing the super achiever engineer

[{u'author_order': 1, u'affiliation': u'US Army Missile Command, Redstone Arsenal, AL, USA', u'authorUrl': u'', u'full_name': u'R.F. Russell', u'id': 37413377700}] IEEE Aerospace and Electronic Systems Magazine, 1988

Guidelines for managing the super achiever are presented. The first step is to identify and classify their problem, plan a solution, and then execute the plan. The personality types that are encounted and the problems they pose for the manager are identified, and suggestions for dealing with them are given.<<ETX>>

How To Know If Consulting Is Right For You

[{u'author_order': 1, u'authorUrl': u'', u'full_name': u'W. Kern', u'id': 37376009300}] Electro International, 1991, 1991

Consulting has a certain appeal, and most technical professionals are tempted by it at some time. But consulting makes special demands on temperament, skills, and experience. To determine whether consulting is for you, you must first understand a little about the various activities called by that name. Then you must carefully examine your emotional needs and life situation as well ...

  • What are Wireless Sensor Networks?

    This chapter introduces wireless sensor networks (WSN), what are they as well as what types and applications exist. WSN consist of a few to thousands of sensor nodes, often also referred to as nodes or sensors, which sensor nodes are connected to each other via wireless communications. There are several assumptions or general properties of WSNs, which make them different from other types of wireless networks. There are many different applications of wireless sensor networks around the world making it impossible to cover all their application areas in the book. Applications of wireless sensor networks span environmental and animal monitoring, factory and industrial monitoring, agricultural monitoring and automation, health monitoring and many other areas. One of the main characteristics of wireless sensor networks is that they are tightly coupled with their application. The chapter explores the types of the WSN such as cyber‐physical system (CPS), body sensor networks.

  • 4 Do Video Games Have Artificial Intelligence?

    Many, perhaps most, video games feature so-called nonplayer characters (NPCs). These could be adversaries, allies, bystanders, or something else. The point is that they are controlled not by the player (you) but by the computer. Usually people refer to the way these NPCs behave as the “AI” of the game.

  • Systems and Applications Used in Critical Communications

    This chapter provides an overview of the systems used to support public safety activities. In this context, the word system refers to a computer‐based entity that is composed of hardware and software with appropriate application programs to support the activities of public safety personnel. Supporting systems are typically located in appropriate centers to support the activities being managed at the center. Emergency response systems provide a link between the people in distress (mainly life‐threatening situations) and an appropriate agency such as the police, ambulance, or fire departments. In many countries, there are centralized and integrated incident management systems, which handle all types of incidents and are used by all agencies. Public warning systems are used to inform the public about emergency situations or other matters of importance to public safety such as providing lifesaving instructions as immediately as possible.

  • Users of Critical Communications Systems

    This chapter discusses the users of critical communications systems. It provides information on the types of users, what they do, and what types of communications systems they use currently. The chapter discusses the organizations where users are employed to perform public safety‐related activities. The focus of the discussions is on organizations, the functions provided, the activities performed, the types of vehicles driven, and the communications systems used. Police departments are mainly responsible for law enforcement and protection of citizens. Fire departments provide firefighting and rescue functions in emergency situations. Like fire departments, emergency medical services may be organized in a variety of ways depending on the country, state, province, county, cities, and townships. A mission‐critical communication system is a network used by organizations to provide communications infrastructure to carry out mission‐critical functions. The critical communications systems used in the utility sector typically support service and maintenance teams for their voice and data communications applications.

  • Trial By Firing: Saga of a Rookie Manager

    This chapter talks about the author's experience working for a large telecommunications research laboratory. He joined as a member of the technical staff. Later, he was made the department manager, and was coached through a wide variety of challenges during the first few months. The chapter describes his varied experience of delivering the firing orders (much to his dislike) to two of his employees. The first employee resigned before he could be dismissed, which made the author feel proud that problem number one had been solved. In the second case, the employee told others in the department about his dismissal which led them to question the author's decision. At the end, the author learned two important lessons: firing somebody is very painful; and no matter how many people are supportive of a painful decision, a person is all alone after implementing the decision.

  • Should He Stay or Should He Go? Advice for a Beleaguered Manager

    This chapter lists a few management mistakes that were made when the author and his team were working to experiment with language-independent compiler technology to translate CHILL. The author was instructed by his boss not to leave his office during his absence. But the author had to undertake a business trip in relation with the project, and because of this reason, he was fired from his job by his boss. Later, the author contacted his boss's boss who reversed the decision and rehired the author. Two management mistakes are highlighted in the chapter: do not think that logic has any role in some management decisions; and do not think that you are invulnerable just because you are doing the?>right?> thing for the company.
