Application Performance Analysis of Distributed File Systems under Cloud Computing Environment

The processing efficiency of data-intensive application on Hadoop with the general-purpose distributed file system such as Lustre, as the backend file system, is not clear. This paper focuses on the similarities and differences between Lustre and HDFS (Hadoop Distributed File System). We propose a Hadoop-Lustre platform and evaluate the performance differences of Lustre and HDFS […]

The data mining applications of shoulder pain patients treatment: physical therapy equipment usage approaches

The purpose of this paper is to apply the data mining techniques to discover and predict the recovery duration from physical therapy equipment usage patterns based on a classification system and establish selection rules of physical therapy techniques based on the association rule discovery method to support the decision making for physical therapists in the […]

Non-Myopic Adaptive Route Planning in Uncertain Congestion Environments

We consider the problem of adaptively routing a fleet of cooperative vehicles within a road network in the presence of uncertain and dynamic congestion conditions. To tackle this problem, we first propose a Gaussian process dynamic congestion model that can effectively characterize both the dynamics and the uncertainty of congestion conditions. Our model is efficient and thus […]

Reconfigurable body worn antenna for Bluetooth and WiMAX

The paper presents a frequency reconfigurable microstrip patch antenna printed on a textile substrate. It can be tuned by using active circuitry between Bluetooth and WiMAX operating at 2.4 GHz and 2.5 GHz frequency bands respectively. Indigo blue jeans having relative permittivity 1.68 with thickness 1 mm is used as a textile substrate. The frequency […]

Formal validation of QRS wave within ECG

Electrical sensors are used to detect and record the electrical activity of the heart over a period of time, this operation is referred to as Electrocardiography (ECG) in medical science. Hence ECG is composed of a set of signal waves that repeats themselves and are usually useful in medical diagnosis, where certain ECG patterns and […]

Performance Optimization of DCF-MAC Standard Using Enhanced RTS Threshold under Impact of IEEE 802.11n WLAN

Wireless Local Area Networks (WLANs) communication means gained widespread reception in recent years and widely used all over world due to its wireless fidelity feature with high data rates assets. With emerged multimedia application on wireless networks and the integration with other cellular networks, requires support for quality of service. In this paper, performance optimization […]

Modeling and Simulation of Data Flow for VLAN-Based Communication in Substations

IEC 61850, the standard for communication in substations, has resolved the interoperability between intelligent electronic devices (IEDs) from different vendors. Thus, the IEDs’ uniform communication standard contributes to the realization of more sophisticated functionality in substation automation systems. However, there are still several issues unsolved for the simulation, planning, and extension of substation communication network […]

Impact of IPSec on Real Time applications in IPv6 and 6to4 Tunneled Migration Network

IPSec is the amalgam of protocols dispensing security in IP networks. It has been the rudimentary security component in IPv4 and IPv6 networks providing for data authentication, integrity and confidentiality. Earlier security was not embedded at the IP level however with emergence of large scale public and corporate internets, the user data became vulnerable to […]

A channel allocation method for IEEE802.19.1 coexistence service to mitigate interferences among heterogeneous wireless networks

IEEE 802.19.1 is the world first standard that specifies coexistence methods by means of exchanging messages between 802.19.1 coexistence system and wireless systems registered to the coexistence system. We propose a channel allocation mechanism for 802.19.1 management service. The mechanism mainly depends upon channel classification where the CM manages channel availability information based on TV […]

Energy-Efficient Scheduling Mechanism for Indoor Wireless Sensor Networks

Energy efficiency is one of the most critical issues in wireless sensor networks, since the sensor nodes are usually battery powered. These energy-constrained sensor nodes are usually densely distributed in indoor environments, which leads to spatially correlated sensor data and low network efficiency. Thus, one way to improve energy efficiency is to reduce the redundancy […]
