    At vehicular speeds, the contact time during which a mobile node is in range of a fixed road side unit (RSU) is short. While this is not an issue if the RSU only needs to deliver textual information such as traffic updates, short contact times become problematic when transmitting a large amount of information. For instance, an RSU may need to deliver high volumes of local navigation data for an au... View full abstract»

    Dedicated Short Range Communication is attracting a lot of interest these days due to its utility in vehicular safety applications, intelligent transportation system and infotainment applications. Such vehicular networks are characterized by the highly dynamic changes in topology, no significant power constraints and ephemeral links. Considering an interaction between the client and server nodes t... View full abstract»

  • Satellite-based AIS receiver for dense maritime zones

    Publication Year: 2017, Page(s):15 - 22
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1324 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    A satellite-based Automatic Identification System (S-AIS) receiver has a high probability of message collisions, both in time and in frequency, for a zone densely populated by AIS-enabled ships. Banks of time-and-frequency selective detectors (that use message fields from un-collided messages from the same ship-track together with interference cancellation) decode collided messages. Algorithms are... View full abstract»

  • On minimal tests of sensor veracity for dynamic watermarking-based defense of cyber-physical systems

    We address the problem of security of cyber-physical systems where some sensors may be malicious. We consider a multiple-input, multiple-output stochastic linear dynamical system controlled over a network of communication and computational nodes which contains (i) a controller that computes the inputs to be applied to the physical plant, (ii) actuators that apply these inputs to the plant, and (ii...

  • Request patterns and caching for VoD services with recommendation systems

    Video on Demand (VoD) services like Netflix and YouTube account for ever increasing fractions of Internet traffic. It is estimated that this fraction will cross 80% in the next three years. Most popular VoD services have recommendation engines which recommend videos to users based on their viewing history, thus introducing time-correlation in user requests. Understanding and modeling this time-cor... View full abstract»

  • Use of ECDF-based features and ensemble of classifiers to accurately detect mobility activities of people using accelerometers

    We look at the problem of using accelerometer in smartphones to detect mobility activities of users. The activities are internally composed of several simple activities. One can perform the task of distinguishing the activities using classic classification techniques with two different data representations namely, statistical features and ECDF-based features. Our recommendation in this paper is to... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (401 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    This paper deals with gender classification by analyzing footfalls captured by seismic sensor. Gender classification plays an important role in developing different applications like guided navigation system that helps the customer to find different shops in a big shopping mall or to find different departments in a hospital on the basis of their gender. We have tested different classifiers (SVM-Li... View full abstract»

    Railways constitute one of the most extensively used mode of transportation in the world. The global passenger traffic is expected to grow steadily in the coming years. This growth in traffic thus calls for a corresponding increase in the comfort and service provided to passengers on-board a railway train. In this paper, we propose CARE, an Internet of Things (IoT) based system for catering to pas... View full abstract»

  • μPnP-WAN: Experiences with LoRa and its deployment in DR Congo

    Publication Year: 2017, Page(s):63 - 70
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (883 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    The Internet of Things (IoT) is being applied in a wide variety of applications, which demand a range of networking support. This includes wide area communication networks. Novel long range network technologies such as LoRa and Sigfox are emerging, but they remain difficult to deploy and configure for end-users who are not specialists in embedded systems. This paper addresses this problem by intro... View full abstract»
