    We present a fuzzy belief, desire and intention (BDI) architecture as a useful framework for modeling co-operative societies of artificial agents. We outline the social conditions necessary for agents to form joint intentions and joint actions. Our architecture facilitates the inference of a mutual belief by the agents of the society. We see this as critical because mutual belief is the starting p... View full abstract»

    E-commerce is not just the transaction, it is also the customer service. The advent of interactive e-commerce has without doubt made buying and selling on the Web successful. However, it continues to lack the quality of personal contact with the customer, which is essential in building and sustaining customer relationships on the Internet. “Real-time” text communication currently used ...

    One method of optimizing throughput for a wireless system while maintaining a certain level of performance is to design the error control system so that it offers two or more different rate codes. The system uses channel-state information to determine which of the various codes should be used at any given moment. In order to minimize system complexity, the same encoder and decoder are used for the... View full abstract»

    Cited by:  Papers (2)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (356 KB)

    The discontinuous conduction mode (DCM) PWM converter is modeled as a transformer by Vorperian's PWM switch model. The recognition that any of the three transformer terminals can serve as the common terminal leads to two alternate PWM transformer models and the corresponding two alternate PWM switch models. For a given PWM DC-DC converter, one of the three PWM switch models is more “natural&... View full abstract»

    The increase in the popularity of agents and transactions has made it necessary to develop a framework for multi-agent interaction. Traditional database transactions, which use the ACID (atomicity, consistency, isolation, durability) properties, must be extended to meet the needs present in an agent-based peer-to-peer environment. By encapsulating our agents and having them conform to new commitme... View full abstract»

    Present day digital system designs are getting to be predominantly software driven. In a typical system life, there will always be revisions, upgrades, and design modifications. Conventionally, the systems have to be sent back to the vendors for upgrading, or new systems have to be bought. However, with the scope of in system reprogrammability (ISR), it is possible to reprogram the system hardware... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (412 KB)

    The dynamic modeling of a single-link flexible beam having both rotational and translation motions and the effects of higher-order dynamics on the response of the beam are investigated. In the literature, modeling of flexible link has often been carried out with the assumed modes technique. In this approximation, only two or three modes are retained and the rest are truncated, which in many cases ... View full abstract»

    ATM is a connection-oriented technique that supports both connection-oriented as well as connectionless services. Analytical models in existence for ATM networks tend to be complicated due to the unpredictable and random nature of ATM traffic. This paper describes the simulation of ATM network and presents the results along with some analytical model results. The on-off model is considered in deta... View full abstract»

    A new vee dipole antenna is proposed as a modification to the conventional vee dipole for improving the gain and reducing the back radiation level without increasing its size. The new vee dipole contains two additional smaller pieces of wire on the arms of the conventional vee dipole that act primarily as directors. The director elements are isolated from the main arms of the vee dipole. The param... View full abstract»
