On maximizing the delivery ratio of ultra low duty-cycle WSNs under real-time constraints

Fei Yang; Isabelle Augé-Blum 2009 IEEE International Symposium on Modeling, Analysis & Simulation of Computer and Telecommunication Systems, 2009

Duty-cycle prolongs the lifetime of battery-powered wireless sensor networks (WSNs). However, it incurs additional delay because the nodes may be asleep. In addition to energy constraints, many applications have real-time constraints, which means the sink has to be informed before a deadline when an event occurs. Moreover, wireless links among low power radios are highly unreliable. These pose big challenges ...


Exploiting CCTV camera system for advanced passenger services on-board trains

Sergio Saponara; Luca Pilato; Luca Fanucci 2016 IEEE International Smart Cities Conference (ISC2), 2016

This work proposes to exploit the on-board closed-circuit television (CCTV) security system to enable advanced services not only for surveillance, but also for safety, automatic climate control, e-ticketing. The new system has minimal hardware and installation cost overheads, since it exploits the already installed CCTV cameras. In addition, for each wagon, an embedded acquisition and processing node (EAP) is used, ...

Simulation and optimization for an experimental environment to wildfire resource management and planning: Firefight project modelling and architecture

Jaume Figueras i Jové; Antoni Guasch i Petit; Pau Fonseca i Casas; Josep Casanovas i García 2013 Winter Simulations Conference (WSC), 2013

Firefighting resource management is crucial to contain and extinguish wildfires. Resource optimization in wildfire containment can help to reduce the dangers and risks to both human (firemen and area inhabitants) and natural environment. The use of simulation to predict wildfire evolution combined with optimization techniques can lead to an optimal resource deployment and management to minimize natural and human risks. ...


The relationship between soil nutrient properties and remote sensing indices in the Phaeozem region of Northeast China

Qiang Ma; Wantai Yu; Hua Zhou 2010 Second International Conference on Computational Intelligence and Natural Computing, 2010

This study analyzed the relationships between soil nutrient characters and remote sensing image of the farmland in the Phaeozem region of Northeast China by GIS and canonical correlation analysis. The results showed that the two sets of variables, i.e. remote sensing indices and soil nutrient indices, had significantly correlative relationship (P<;;0.05) and the first canonical variable of remote sensing indices ...

  • Dendritic Summation

    The input architecture of many neurons consists of a treelike structure called a _dendritic tree_. The branches gather in as many as 100,000 messages, coming from the axons of preceding neurons, via synaptic and electrical gap junctions. The branches are nonregenerating unmyelinated fibers, so signals are rapidly attenuated. As the dendritic potential (DP) propagates toward the neuron body (the trunk of the tree), it gains time width as it loses voltage height. The neuron body is excited if many action potentials (APs) arrive more or less simultaneously at the periphery, but junctions located closer to the neuron body suffer less attenuation, so fewer of them have to be excited simultaneously to stimulate the neuron. The latter, in effect, gathers in all of the dendritic inputs and fires, as usual, when the net summation (after attenuation) exceeds the threshold. If the neuron is a type that generates a graded potential, the output is simply proportional to the net summation of attenuated DPs. There is a very important class of _inhibitory_ inputs; because their inputs are relatively weak, inhibitory junctions are located on or close to the neuron body. In effect, inhibitory inputs raise the firing threshold of the neuron. The outputs resulting from several simple combinations of input signals are examined in detail.

  • Lightning and Surge Protection

    Surge voltages are a significant hazard in power transmission and distribution systems. Surges are the causes of much equipment failure, such as downed conductors, fires, and step and touch potentials, which may injure people nearby. The design manufacture and installation of electrical power equipment and systems must be fundamentally based on safety both for users of the equipment and for those who operate and maintain it. Opening of circuit breakers on capacitors may produce overvoltages resulting in restrike. The restrike is caused by the voltage across the opening contacts to exceed the breakdown voltage of the gap. The resulting transient can reach three times the peak voltage. The temporary overvoltage (TOV) rating should be greater than or equal to the maximum line-to-ground voltage during a single-line to ground fault (SLGF).
