    In this paper we propose new schemes for increasing code rate of the orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) based virtual orthogonal space time block coding (OSTBC). The proposed schemes are used for creating virtual 4×1 multiple input-single output (MISO) channel. These schemes include one base station (BS), one relay station (RS), both equipped with two antennas and one mobile station... View full abstract»

    To avoid the interference, there are large areas in TV planning called TV white spaces (TVWS) where certain channels are deliberately not used. It was proposed to use them for low-power wireless networking on non-interfering basis with the licensed (primary) Digital TV service. The lack of knowledge about locations of TV receivers as well as unreliability of the aggregate interference impact estim... View full abstract»

    Tracking the test-plan progress of the direct testing methodology is a manual process. If the test-plan is complicated, the manual tracking effort is huge. In this paper, an automated functional coverage method is proposed to be used along with direct testing in order to automatically track the progress of the test-plan. To the best of our knowledge, it is the first time that functional coverage i... View full abstract»

    This paper is about a poly-Si PV system linked to the electric grid by power electronic converters. The modeling for the converters emulates the association of a DC-DC boost with a two-level power inverter in order to follow the performance of a inverter employed on an experimental system. A fuzzy PI control is used with pulse width modulation by sliding mode associated with space vector modulatio... View full abstract»

    This paper is about an innovative design for an urban Darrieus Vertical Axis Wind Turbine (VAWT), having the ability of having self-start at low wind velocities, but without the need for extra components or external electricity feed-in. A new mathematical model to assess complex shaped Darrieus VAWT prototype is presented in this paper and offers a new approach to the Double Multiple Streamtube mo... View full abstract»

  • Automated segmentation of brain tumors in MRI using potential field clustering

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (146 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    We propose potential field clustering, a new algorithm based on an analogy with the concept of potential field in Physics. By viewing the intensity of a pixel in a FLAIR MRI image as a “mass” that creates a potential field, the algorithm is used for tumor localization. The center of the localized tumor cluster is then used as the initial seed in a region growing segmentation algorithm. We evaluate... View full abstract»

    The effect of the structure scaling on the Hall Effect sensors performance (including offset values) is investigated. To this purpose, the Hall devices have been integrated in a regular bulk CMOS technology and tested for their main parameters. The comparative analysis is focused on three Hall cells (basic, L, XL), with progressive scaled up dimensions. Measurements results for the sensitivity, of... View full abstract»

    In this paper we propose a novel specification of a UML profile for the representation of a relational database schema. The profile specification is based on the UML class diagram extension that exploits operation signature for the representation of specific relational database concepts, such as single and multi-column primary and foreign keys, indices, etc. The advantages of the proposed approach...

    Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line (ADSL) is a broadband communications technology which is widely used for transmitting high bandwidth data such as audio and video over the internet. However, ensuring a good Quality of Service (QoS) in the transmission of such data over ADSL is challenging due to channel impairments such as noise and crosstalk. Moreover, given that the total monthly fixed data tr... View full abstract»

    Wireless communication standards such as the IEEE 802.11n Wi-Fi standard employ powerful error correcting codes such as Low Density Parity Check (LDPC) codes and Hybrid Automatic Repeat reQuest (HARQ) to achieve reliable transmission. Reliability-Based HARQ (RB-HARQ) schemes have proved to be an efficient alternative approach to incremental redundancy ARQ. This paper proposes a modified RB-HARQ sc... View full abstract»

    Video streaming is one of the most widely used applications of internet users. However, bandwidth fluctuations especially during peak periods can seriously impact the Quality of Experience (QoE) of users by causing intermittent freezing of the video. This paper proposes a client-oriented video streaming application which dynamically changes the video quality by using a bandwidth prediction mechani... View full abstract»

    This paper deals with the joint modulation relaying (JMR) design for the two-way relay channel where two users exchange information via a half-duplex relay node. We studied in particular the broadcast mode where the relay node combines the bits received from the two users and retransmit the combined information to both users. Symmetric and asymmetric data rate transmissions are considered. We show... View full abstract»

    This paper presents a complete system for vehicle classification composed by an inductive-loop detector and the corresponding off-line algorithms. The system detects the presence of vehicles by means of a shift in the oscillation period of the selected loop so that the signature of the detected vehicles is registered by measuring the duration of a fixed number of oscillator pulses. We focus on the... View full abstract»
