Mobility of IP based Wireless Sensor Nodes in Sensor-Grid infrastructure

As the world is moving towards the “Internet of Things” [1], Internet Protocol enabled wireless sensor network is becoming an important research area. In order to make it possible and to facilitate transmission of IPv6 packets over low powered networks, 6Lowpan [2,3] has been introduced. Since the IPWSN application domain is expanded to real-time applications such as health-care [17] and surveillance systems, a fast and seamless handover becomes an important criterion for supporting mobility in

STUDY OF SUPERHYDROPHILIC NANOPARTICLE-BASED ULTRA-THIN FILMS TOWARDS THE DEVELOPMENT OF OPTICAL FIBER HUMIDITY SENSORS

The study of new nanostructured transparent materials in order to control the permeability properties of the objects is a very interesting field of research due to its enormous applications in optical and electronics among others. With the aim of achieving superhydrophilic coatings it is very important to control some coating parameters such as the water affinity of the coating materials and the overall thickness and roughness at the nanometer scale. In this work transparent superhydrophilic

OBJECT TRACKING BASED ON MACHINE VISION AND IMPROVED SVDD ALGORITHM

Object tracking is an important research topic in the applications of machine vision, and has made great progress in the past decades, among which the technique based on classification is a very efficient way to solve the tracking problem. The classifier classifies the objects and background into two different classes, where the tracking drift caused by noisy background can be effectively handled by one-class SVM. But the time and space complexities of traditional one-class SVM methods tend to

NOVEL MULTI-CLASS SVM ALGORITHM FOR MULTIPLE OBJECT RECOGNITION

Object recognition is a fundamental task in applications of computer vision, which aims at detecting and locating the interested objects out of the backgrounds in images or videos, and can be originally formulated as a binary classification problem that can be effectively handled by binary SVM. Although the binary technique can be naturally extended to solve the multiple object recognition, which are known as one-vs.-one and one-vs.-all techniques, but the scalability of traditional methods

A Low-Tech Bioreactor System for the Enrichment and Production of Ureolytic Microbes

Ureolysis-driven microbially induced carbonate precipitation (MICP) has recently received attention for its potential biotechnological applications. However, information on the enrichment and production of ureolytic microbes by using bioreactor systems is limited. Here, we report a low-tech down-flow hanging sponge (DHS) bioreactor system for the enrichment and production of ureolytic microbes. Using this bioreactor system and a yeast extract-based medium containing 0.17 M urea, ureolytic

CONCLUSION Although a large number of research studies have focused on functional analysis and characterization of exosomes secreted by different stem cells, few studies have reported on hAF derived exosomes. Our results may offer meaningful initial insights on the characterization of hAF derived exosomes for future therapeutic applications. Indeed, hAF derived exosomes can be easily isolated from left over samples of amniotic fluid from amniocentesis, or during cesarean delivery without

Development of Miniature Modular Digital Altimeter

Altimetry is defined as the method of measuring heights above sea level. Measuring height has been achieved by various methodologies in the past, ranging from U-shaped columns of mercury or water, sealed pressurized balloons of air or more modern approaches such as the Global Positioning System (GPS). However, all these methods are either quite bulky or power hungry and so a low cost, light weight unit would be useful for various applications. Shown here is a small microprocessor controlled

An Enhanced Scheme in Controlling Both Coverage and Quality of Service in Wireless Sensor Networks

With the increasing number of applications for Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs), different Quality of Services (QoS) levels based on the type of applications are required. An increasing research interest has been noted in the provision of QoS support in WSNs. QoS support in WSNs is challenging because of very limited resources, such as battery power, processing power, memory, and bandwidth. An earlier study introduced a QoS control approach based on the Gur Game. The Gur Game-based scheme can

SMALL AREA ESTIMATION FOR SKEWED DATA IN THE PRESENCE OF ZEROES

Skewed distributions with representative outliers pose a problem in many surveys. Various small area prediction approaches for skewed data based on transformation models have been proposed. However, in certain applications of those predictors, the fact that the survey data also contain a non-negligible number of zero-valued observations is sometimes dealt with rather crudely, for instance by arbitrarily adding a constant to each value (to allow zeroes to be considered as “positive observations
