    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (272 KB)

    In this paper, an architecture is proposed for the development of an e-Learning system based on Petri Nets and on a hybrid LDAP-SQL database. In this approach, e-Learning paths are initially tailored to the userpsilas aims and, during the learning process, are dynamically adapted to his needs. By means of an ad hoc user-system interface, each learner is allowed to specify his initial target and, i... View full abstract»

    Tropospheric delay can be a significant source of error for satellite-based positioning systems, if it is not properly estimated. Two basic types of delay prediction models exist. The first use surface meteorological parameters to estimate the magnitude of the tropospheric delay, and the other global models use average and seasonal variation data. To verify the accuracy of tropospheric delay model... View full abstract»
