    The overall performance of a communication-based train control (CBTC) system largely depends on the performance of its data communications subsystem (DCS). The DCS network in almost all CBTC commercial system products marketed in the last decade uses radio communications in the open industrial, scientific, and medical (ISM) bands (2.4 or 5.8 GHz) to establish the bidirectional data link between ce...

    The Brown Line of the Taipei Rapid Transit System is the only rubber-tire medium capacity line in the system. The first phase of its construction was launched in 1988, and revenue service began in 1996. It was frequently referred to as the Muzha Line, as the route runs from the Taipei Zoo in the southeast suburb of Muzha to the vicinity of the Taipei Songshan Airport in the northeast side of the d...

    Increasing the battery-recharge period of smartphones is becoming a challenge since their power consumption is increased as a result of enhanced functions that require sophisticated multimedia signal processing. An attractive solution is constituted by wireless charging, which is capable of replenishing the battery over the ether. Given this motivation, we present the fundamental physics and the r...

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (2250 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Delay-tolerant networking (DTN) is considered one of the most suitable technologies to handle challenging space-vehicle communications. Routing is critical in the DTN architecture. Contact graph routing (CGR) is a dynamic system that computes routes through a time-varying topology of scheduled communication contacts in the DTN architecture. There is an urgent need to study the scalability of CGR t... View full abstract»

    Communications play an important role during public-safety operations. Because the current communication technologies heavily rely on the backbone network, the failure of base stations (BSs) due to natural disasters or malevolent attacks causes communication difficulties for public-safety and emergency communications. Recently, the use of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), such as quadcopters and gl... View full abstract»
