A DMAC Protocol to Improve Spatial Reuse by Managing the NAV Table of the Nodes in VANET

2009 Second International Conference on Computer and Electrical Engineering, 2009

Several MAC protocols using directional antennas have been proposed to improve capacity in MANET by improving spatial reuse and communication throughput. Although transmissions using the directional MAC protocol are expected to provide significant improvements, they cause problems such as the deafness and fairness problems. High-mobility VANET has a particular problem using the DMAC protocol because vehicles can interfere with each ...

Reanimating paralyzed limbs coping with spatially distributed, multimodal systems

Proceedings of the Second Joint 24th Annual Conference and the Annual Fall Meeting of the Biomedical Engineering Society] [Engineering in Medicine and Biology, 2002

Sensory prostheses generally require dense multichannel interfaces in a small place that is difficult to access but mechanically protected. Motor prostheses must activate a relatively modest number of muscles distributed widely over limbs subject to constant motion and external impacts. Sensory prostheses require high data rates to recreate complex temporospatial patterns of neural activity while muscles are unidimensional low-pass filters. ...

  • A DMAC Protocol to Improve Spatial Reuse by Managing the NAV Table of the Nodes in VANET

    Several MAC protocols using directional antennas have been proposed to improve capacity in MANET by improving spatial reuse and communication throughput. Although transmissions using the directional MAC protocol are expected to provide significant improvements, they cause problems such as the deafness and fairness problems. High-mobility VANET has a particular problem using the DMAC protocol because vehicles can interfere with each other in contention for transmissions. In this letter, we proposed and evaluated a suitable DMAC protocol for VANET. As a result, spatial reuse increased the average throughput by 40% over omni-MAC, and 20% over general DMAC, while jitter showed a 17% decrease over both protocols. With these results, we confirmed the efficiency of the proposed protocol for use in VANET which requires fast access and reliable data transmission.

  • The Influence of Dunqiang Qigong on Hearing and Blood Sugar Lever of Patients with Diabetes Deafness

    Objective To observe the influence of Dunqiang Qigong on hearing and blood sugar lever of patients with diabetes deafness. Methods 70 patients with diabetes mellitus (NIDDM) with deafness, were randomly divided into two groups, treatment group 39 cases (61 ears), control group of 31 cases (54 ears). Treatment group practice Dunqiang Qigong and eat Glenn urea every other day. Control group every day Glenn urea and conventional medicines of treating deafness. The hearing, FBG, PBG, and 24h urine sugar quantitative changes were observed in two groups before and after treatment. Results Total effective rate of hearing improved in the treatment group was 31.6%, the control group was 29.6% (p>0.05).The change of fasting blood glucose(FBG), 2h postprandial blood glucose(PBG) and 24h urine glucose quantitative were more obvious than those before treatment in two groups(P<;0.05, P<;0.01), Among them,the curative effect of PBG and 24h urine sugar quantitmive in treatment group were better than those of control group (p<;0.01), FBG has no obvious difference in two groups(p>0.05). Conclusion Dunqiang Qigong can change blood glucose and hearing of patients with diabetes deaf and reduce the amount of diabetes drugs.

  • Reanimating paralyzed limbs coping with spatially distributed, multimodal systems

    Sensory prostheses generally require dense multichannel interfaces in a small place that is difficult to access but mechanically protected. Motor prostheses must activate a relatively modest number of muscles distributed widely over limbs subject to constant motion and external impacts. Sensory prostheses require high data rates to recreate complex temporospatial patterns of neural activity while muscles are unidimensional low-pass filters. Sensory prostheses generally need one sophisticated interface for stimulation while sensorimotor prostheses require a wealth of command and feedback signals employing different electrical and mechanical sensing modalities. Sensory prostheses do as little signal processing as necessary to enable the brain to do the difficult perceptual computations while sensorimotor prostheses must replace the functionality of motor planning and coordination centers whose normal functions we barely understand. Sensory deficits (e.g. deafness, blindness) tend to affect large numbers of patients in homogeneous and stable ways while motor deficits come in a much wider variety and change over time due to neural and muscular plasticity. We are just starting to assemble the diverse armamentarium of implantable interfaces, control strategies and fitting tools that will be needed to treat motor disabilities successfully.

  • Feasibility of Face Animation on Mobile Phones for Deaf Users

    Mobile telephone systems have made a fantastic progress in general, but deaf people are practically excluded from the benefits of mobiles. Our aim was to develop a new communication aid for deaf users. Our system directly converts the audio speech signal into the video of animated face, so the deaf users can receive voice messages by lip-reading. Our system was implemented and tested in a PC environment earlier. This paper reports on the implementation on mobile phones and PDAs. The implementation problems and the potential steps for further improvements are also discussed.

  • A discrimination ability of time sequential signal by electrical stimulation to auditory nerves and its comparison with that by vibrotactile stimulation

    An experiment on the discrimination of time sequential stimuli of auditory nerves was carried out, and its result was compared with results for the vibrotactile sense. An extracochlear prosthesis that stimulates via an electrode superficially placed on the round window membrane of the cochlea is described. A new speech coding method is proposed for the prosthesis, for transmitting the pitch signal and the second formant frequency. In this method, an additional stimulation pulse is inserted among the pitch pulses, and the time delay from pitch to additional pulse is proportional to the second formant frequency. This coding method has been seen to be effective in recognizing about 60% of Japanese vowels.<<ETX>>

  • Quiet Comfort Beds with Electronic Noise Reduction System

    This paper presents a noise reduction electronic headboard system. Annoying noise disturbances can disrupt sleep leading to insomnia and its consequences, and in many cases lead to hearing loss. We propose to reduce environmental noises and more interestingly snore noise by using a low cost active noise control (ANC) system. The proposed system is designed to be unobtrusive and can be installed in bedrooms or on existing traditional headboards. A digital signal processor was used to run the algorithms for real-time noise cancellation. Experiments were performed on a modified twin-size bed fitted with the electronic headboard. Results from these experiments show that the system is effective in canceling both repetitive noises like engine noise, and complex noises like snore noise creating a reasonably large quiet zone.

  • Pitch invariant frequency lowering with nonuniform spectral compression

    A technique for improving speech reception for persons with high frequency hearing loss based on pitch invariant frequencg lowering of the short term spectral envelope is described. The speech signal is segmented pitch synchronously, processed by a technique described by oppenheim and Johnson (1) to achieve nonuniform spectral warping, dilated in time to achieve frequencg lowering, and resynthesized with the original periodicity. Both the overall bandwidth reduction and the relative compression of low and high frequency components can be specified. Spectrographic examples illustrating the range of transformations achieved are presented to illustrate the capability of the system.

  • Alternative communication in the case of speech impairment

    We propose an analysis of some problems which need palliative communication, especially oral palliation in the case of speech impairment as a result of an innate or acquired handicap following two major problems involved in the production of sentences: i) access to a lexical memory, where predictions are useful in order to increase the performance of the communication; ii) building sentences, where prediction seems to be more complicated, due to the role of words constituting sentences in communication. Comparing proposed solutions in severe handicaps of palliative communication, we give some important principles required for the bases of writing systems and the difficulties involved, but also some linguistic structures that they reveal. We underline the need for an appropriate analysis of the language to be produced if we aim for the production of sentences for a text to speech system.

  • Mak-Messenger and Finger-Chat, communications technologies to assist in teaching of signed languages to the deaf and hearing

    Communications-based learning technology is an area of educational research that seeks to use advanced communication systems to enhance traditional learning environments with tools that allow students and teachers to formulate and exchange ideas. Increasingly technologies such as instant messaging, and chat systems are being used for teaching. We present two communications-based learning systems, Mak-Messenger and Finger-Chat, specifically designed to assist in the teaching of signed languages to deaf and hearing students. By providing these examples of learning technologies specifically tailored to the deaf community, we hope to illustrate how advanced learning technologies may be used to address issues relating to the educational needs of the deaf.
