    Those who live outside of the state might associate Idaho with the potato or as a premiere destination for winter recreation. Others might recognize it as the final resting place of Ernest Hemmingway or the birthplace of “Smurf Turf,” the blue playing field of the Boise State University football team. View full abstract»

    In this paper a system that can estimate the time of arrival for scheduled transport is presented. In the case presented here, the system is applied to a regular boat service. It has been in use for a six-month period, during which it has been able to give very accurate ETA values for both normal and exceptional situations. An advantage with learning systems is that they are general and can be used for new applications without extensive setup. View full abstract»

    Visual perception refers to the ability to interpret information and surroundings from visible light reaching the eye. Eyesight, sight, or simply vision is the resulting perception. This article emphasizes human and electronic imaging in terms of their perception and intensity of image. View full abstract»

  • Path Restoration Schemes for MPLS Networks

    Page(s): 22 - 28

    The authors have presented an overview and simulation of several path restoration schemes for MPLS networks. Each scheme has its own advantages and disadvantages that make them appropriate for different applications. These characteristics include recovery time in case of failure, packet loss, packet reordering, and recovery delay. The decision of implementing some of these schemes in a real network depends on how much resources are available and the requirements of the network user's. Furthermore, simulation results based on OMNET+ + show that the simple dynamic scheme has the lowest arrival time when compared to the other reported path restoration schemes. Future work will be focused on investigating further comparisons and enhancements of these schemes. View full abstract»

  • Power Play: On the Notion of Fractional Quantum Fourier Transform

    Quantum computing is a research area that has held much promise over the last decade. With the increasing min iaturization in the semiconductor industry, one of the major problems with manufac tured chips is the increased power dissi pation. Recent research from IBM and Intel has found ways of minimizing the power dissipation from the chips by replacing some part of silicon with haf nium. Though the replacing of silicon with hafnium (the first chip with even smallest amount of hafnium is still await ing production) shall be helpful, it is not the solution with the ever-increasing level of miniaturization. Ultimately, there should be some way out when the size of a transistor on a chip gets to the size of the atom, the fundamental particle of matter. With such a level of miniaturization, the quantum effects of the particles shall become prominent and, in effect, it is not able to represent data in its present form. The data at that level of miniaturization will have to be represented and structured using quantum properties of particles and the operations on data shall be performed using quantum mechanical phenomenon.

    This paper was focused on iShoe, a device used for balancing. This device was designed for patient rehabilitation that would operate safely in home of elderly or recovering patient. This device was comprise of wearable device such as force sensor, assistive device such as walker, and environmental sensor. Topics on design such as Tekscan's FlexiForce sensor, force sensor, accelerometer, PC interfacing, microcontroller, insole development, walker development,and data acquisition development were discussed.

    Wireless radio relays are one of the possible contenders to extend the capacity and reliability of broadband data channels envisaged for 4G and above. Several research and standardization groups are engaged in evaluating and evolving the range of applications with radio relays. There are both pros and cons of this technology, which needs to be carefully addressed before its actual implementation. Its cost effectiveness will also be a decid ing factor in a particular application sce nario with respect to other competing technologies. View full abstract»

    A method to allocate resources for end users in MANET is proposed in this paper. The proposed algorithm has used a WQF model to allocate the bandwidth and stream synchronization. It has been tested under different scenarios to evaluate the network performance using NS-2.33. The simulation results have shown that the packets are transmitted with the minimum delay at the high load.The proposed model takes only 500 ms for transmission of 35,000 PUs from the source to the destination. This work does not consider packet loss, but in real situations there is a packet loss in the network. The basic mechanism in this work is highly extensible and supports QoS for end-users. Currently, it is incorporated with some additional optimizations to quantify the effects of the individual optimizations on the behavior and performance of the protocol. View full abstract»
