The last decades a variety of portable or wearable navigation systems have been developed to assist visually impaired people during navigation in known or unknown, indoor or outdoor environments. There are three main categories of these systems: electronic travel aids (ETAs), electronic orientation aids (EOAs), and position locator devices (PLDs). This paper presents a comparative survey among por... View full abstract»

Electronic textiles (e-textiles), known as computational fabrics, offer an emerging platform for constructing ambient intelligent applications. Computational nodes in e-textiles are driven by batteries. Unlike wireless sensor networks, not each computational node in e-textiles has its own battery. Instead, many computational nodes in e-textiles share a battery. Existing e-textiles use one fixed ba... View full abstract»
Genetic Algorithms With Immigrants and Memory Schemes for Dynamic Shortest Path Routing Problems in MobilePublication Year: 2010, Page(s):52 - 63
Cited by: Papers (61)
In recent years, the static shortest path (SP) problem has been well addressed using intelligent optimization techniques, e.g., artificial neural networks, genetic algorithms (GAs), particle swarm optimization, etc. However, with the advancement in wireless communications, more and more mobile wireless networks appear, e.g., mobile networks [mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs)], wireless sensor...

The multimode resource-constrained project-scheduling problem with discounted cash flows (MRCPSPDCF) is important and challenging for project management. As the problem is strongly nondeterministic polynomial-time hard, only a few algorithms exist and the performance is still not satisfying. To design an effective algorithm for the MRCPSPDCF, this paper proposes an ant colony optimization (ACO) ap... View full abstract»

Multiagent systems consist of a collection of agents that directly interact usually via a form of message passing. Information about these interactions can be analyzed in an online or offline way to identify clusters of agents that are related. The first part of this paper is dedicated to a formal definition of a proposed dynamic model for agent clustering and experimental results that demonstrate... View full abstract»
A Nonlinear Filter Coupled With Hospitability and Synthetic Inclination Maps for In-Surveillance and Out-of-Surveillance TrackingPublication Year: 2010, Page(s):87 - 97
Cited by: Papers (5)
This paper presents an algorithm for in-surveillance and out-of-surveillance mobile ground target tracking. In this respect, a nonlinear Bayesian estimation filter is presented. Then, an adaptive algorithm is derived to reduce remarkably the computational burden of this filter, while not degrading the accuracy of the state estimates. Additionally, an algorithm employing the concepts of hospitabili... View full abstract»

A strategy is introduced to rank and select principal component transform (PCT) and discrete cosine transform (DCT) transform coefficient features to overcome the curse of dimensionality frequently encountered in implementing multivariate signal classifiers due to small sample sizes. The criteria considered for ranking include the magnitude, variance, interclass separation, and classificati... View full abstract»
Simulated Responses to Support Surface Disturbances in a Humanoid Biped Model With a Vestibular-Like ApparatusPublication Year: 2010, Page(s):109 - 119
Cited by: Papers (3)
In this paper, a model of a humanoid biped is developed. The dynamics are formulated to simulate responses to a sudden backwards translational disturbance of the support surface. The effect of joint stiffnesses, the role of vestibular and proprioceptive sensory apparatus in the maintenance of balance, and the involvement of the centers of mass and pressure are taken into consideration and shown in...
