This paper presents the first complete design to apply compressive sampling theory to sensor data gathering for large-scale wireless sensor networks. The successful scheme developed in this research is expected to offer fresh frame of mind for research in both compressive sampling applications and large-scale wireless sensor networks. We consider the(More)
In this paper, we first develop a rate-distortion (R-D) model for DCT-based video coding incorporating the macroblock (MB) intra refreshing rate. For any given bit rate and intra refreshing rate, this model is capable of estimating the corresponding coding distortion even before a video frame is coded. We then present a theoretical analysis of the picture(More)
We proposed compressive data gathering (CDG) that leverages compressive sampling (CS) principle to efficiently reduce communication cost and prolong network lifetime for large scale monitoring sensor networks. The network capacity has been proven to increase proportionally to the sparsity of sensor readings. In this paper, we further address two key(More)
The imaging sensors are able to provide intuitive visual information for quick recognition and decision. However, imaging sensors usually generate vast amount of data. Therefore, processing and coding of image data collected in a sensor network for the purpose of energy efficient transmission poses a significant technical challenge. In particular, multiple(More)
A semiautomated feature extraction algorithm is presented for the extraction and measurement of the hippocampus from volumetric magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) head scans. This algorithm makes use of elements of both deformable model and region growing techniques and allows incorporation of a priori operator knowledge of hippocampal location and shape.(More)
In this paper, we present a novel joint application physical-layer design (JAPLD) strategy to cost-effectively transmit scalable H.264/AVC video over multi-input multi-output (MIMO) wireless systems. With this approach, the application layer cooperates with the physical layer to maximize the system performance. First, in physical layer, we propose a new(More)
Video frame resizing has received more and more research attention as contemporary video distributions need to deliver video to various receiving devices with different display resolutions. It is now becoming necessary for video distribution systems to be able to generate higher resolution video from lower resolution one for some end users. Current schemes(More)
