    Adaptive modulation and automatic modulation classification are highly demanded in software-defined radio (SDR) for both commercial and military applications. Various design options of automatic classifiers have attracted researchers in developing 3G and 4G wireless communication systems. There is an urgent need to investigate the different methods of coherent and noncoherent modulation estimation... View full abstract»

    In this paper, we explore using a hybrid evolutionary algorithm (HEA) for deploying and configuring a set of given sensors on a synthetically generated 3-D terrain. In our evolutionary-algorithm (EA) based solution, various methods are considered in order to incorporate specialized operators for hybridization, including problem-specific heuristics for initial population generation, intelligent var...

    Research on biometrics has noticeably increased. However, no single bodily or behavioral feature is able to satisfy acceptability, speed, and reliability constraints of authentication in real applications. The present trend is therefore toward multimodal systems. In this paper, we deal with some core issues related to the design of these systems and propose a novel modular framework, namely, novel...

    In this research, we present a new method, termed F-Sign, for automatic extraction of unique signatures from malware files. F-Sign is primarily intended for high-speed network traffic filtering devices that are based on deep-packet inspection. Malicious executables are analyzed using two approaches: disassembly, utilizing IDA-Pro, and the application of a dedicated state machine in order to obtain... View full abstract»

    Localization is arguably the most important goal for a robot to solve-without knowledge of its place in the world, a robot cannot do useful work. The current best practice for providing accurate localization given uncertain sensors involves the use of sensor fusion, or combining sensor data in order to derive a better pose estimation for the robot. Small robots add another problem that needs to be... View full abstract»

    This paper proposes a novel evolutionary multiobjective footstep planner for humanoid robots. First, a footstep planner using a univector field navigation method is proposed to provide a command state (CS), which is to be an input of a modifiable walking pattern generator (MWPG) at each footstep. Then, the MWPG generates corresponding trajectories for every leg joint of the humanoid robot at each ... View full abstract»

    Researchers designing the multiagent tools and techniques for computer-supported collaborative learning (CSCL) environments are often faced with high cost, time, and effort required to investigate the effectiveness of their tools and techniques in large scale and longitudinal studies in a real-world environment containing human users. Here, we propose SimCoL, a multiagent environment that simulate... View full abstract»

    Floorplanning in very large scale integrated-circuit (VLSI) design is the first phase in the process of designing the physical layout of a chip. This makes the floorplanning problem of paramount importance, since it determines the performance, size, yield, and reliability of VLSI chips . From the computational point of view, the VLSI floorplanning is an NP-hard problem. In this paper, we present a... View full abstract»

    Many real-life problems are multiobjective optimization problems, and often, when solving these types of problems, the main task that the researchers are interested in is to compute or approximate the Pareto-optimal front. In this paper, a systematic procedure (an analytical approach) is introduced not only for finding the Pareto-optimal front but for formulating the relationship between the decis...
