    Range ambiguity is a inherent problem of Doppler weather radar. At present, the most usual methods to mitigate the range ambiguity are batch mode and split cuts. These methods are simple, but when powers of the overlaid echoes are close to each other, these methods will fail. Doppler velocity and spectrum width displays characterize these failures by encoding locations of such overlaid powers with... View full abstract»

    Course scoring is the major criteria for measuring the teaching effect and a basis for improving the education quality. Analytic scoring of landscape CAD (computer-aided design) course is influenced by various factors. Relationships among these factors are complex, some are nonlinear, even some are random and fuzzy. It is difficult to explain their internal relationships with traditional method. T... View full abstract»

    The Probabilistic Index Map (PIM) model was originally proposed for video processing to extract background of video frames. In this paper, we introduce the PIM model for texture segmentation. We first extract texture features based on Laws and Gabor filters respectively. Then we present a fuzzy k-means method to generate the index map and palette, and use the PIM model to improve the segmentation ... View full abstract»

    Although, there are several software reliability models existing today, yet for software in the useful life where no upgradation, debugging or modification is done and also where no efforts are taken to avoid the errors, there exists several contradicting opinions. Some people say that in the useful life the reliability is time dependent others say that they are independent of time. In the literat... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (316 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Open and dynamic pervasive computing environments make fault detection and error recovery challenging. In this paper, we present a policy based framework for error-tolerant scheme in pervasive computing. As policy-based scheme can separate the business logic (rules) from the controls (programming code) of the implementations, it is typically more flexible and adaptable than non-policy-based approa...
