    As in the case of the barcode, worldwide and cross-industry standardization is key for a successful radio frequency identification (RFID) adoption and, therefore, crucial for its widespread use. EPCglobal, an international and cross-industry standard-setting body for RFID technology, intends to take different and partially conflicting industry requirements into account. We illustrate an area of co... View full abstract»

    The recently introduced method, which was called ldquostretching,rdquo is extended to timed Petri nets which may have both controllable and uncontrollable transitions. Using this method, a new Petri net, called ldquostretched Petri net,rdquo which has only unit firing durations, is obtained to represent a timed-transition Petri net. Using this net, the state of the original timed Petri net can be ... View full abstract»

    Many fault detection algorithms deal with fault signatures that manifest themselves as step changes. While detection of these step changes can be difficult due to noise and other complicating factors, detecting slowly developing faults is usually even more complicated. Tradeoffs between early detection and false positive avoidance are more difficult to establish. Often times, slow drift faults go ... View full abstract»

    A systems engineering approach is used to propose and develop a methodology and mathematical model for identifying the most critical links of a highway system. There are two main benefits for using the methodology and mathematical model. The first is that it provides analysts a platform for developing efficient models pertinent to highway link criticality. The second is that it helps city official... View full abstract»

    The need to perform faster systems integration of complex systems require the architect and design team to understand how the selected architecture and design components will impact the systems integration processes complexity (or difficulty). Systems integration process complexity is an outcome of the interaction between degree of feasibility and level of effort required to understand, describe, ... View full abstract»

    This paper refines and extends in fundamental ways an existing model for the numerical assessment of sustainability called sustainability assessment by fuzzy evaluation (SAFE). SAFE, in its basic form, uses fuzzy logic to combine a large suite of basic indicators and then computes numerical values of sustainability for a number of composite indicators such as air, land, economy, health, etc. At a ...

    In this paper, we consider the problem of location updating in mobile ad-hoc networks (MANETs). We propose a node stability-based location updating approach. In order to optimize the routing, most of the existing routing algorithms use some mechanism for determining a node's neighbors. This information is stored in a table called the neighbor table. The updating of the neighbor table is referred t... View full abstract»

    Fuel efficiency of Oregon's automobile fleet has eroded fuel tax revenues over the past 30 years. Further improvement of automobile fuel efficiency, particularly with the adoption of the hybrid electric vehicle engine, will have an even more dramatic effect on fuel tax revenues in the near future. In 2003, Oregon State University in collaboration with the Oregon Department of Transportation and th... View full abstract»

    In this paper, we have proposed a sensor fusion scheme along with the geometrical modeling of mobile robot navigation path in an unknown environment. In this scheme, the physical placement of sonars, their ranging limits and beam opening angles are considered. A simple 2-D axis transformation is proposed to relate local robot frame with the actual navigation environment. forward safe path (FSP) an... View full abstract»
