The purpose of this study was to evaluate and quantify the planning performance of SmartArc-based volumetric-modulated arc radiotherapy (VMAT) versus fixed-beam intensity-modulated radiotherapy (IMRT) for nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) using a sequential mode treatment plan. The plan quality and performance of dual arc-VMAT (DA-VMAT) using the Pinnacle3(More)
Vehicular Ad Hoc Network (VANET) is characterized by high speed, high efficient addressing mechanism is required for vehicles to access to Internet or communicate with each other for some practical or emergent information. The existing methods of addressing for VANET usually do not cope with instant IP address assignment and recycling. This paper proposed(More)
Wireless ad hoc networks becomes a new type of wireless networks gradually because it could communicate to each other without infrastructure base stations. Due to limited power, routing path is broken easily, so how to design an effective power saving routing protocol is an important issue in wireless ad hoc networks. To solve this issue, we propose a new(More)
Movement patterns play a crucial role in evaluating the performance of mobility-dependent personal communication service (PCS) strategies, such as location updating and paging schemes. This study proposes a novel normal walk model to represent more closely the daily mobility patterns of a mobile station (MS) in mesh PCS networks than a conventional random(More)
Recent technological advances have lead to the emergence of wireless sensor and actor networks (WSAN) which sensors gather the information for an event and actors perform the appropriate actions. Since sensors are prone to failure due to energy depletion, hardware failure, and communication link errors, designing an efficient fault tolerance mechanism(More)
Crepitus is a prominent sign during the knee joint undergoing a range of motion which can be detected to form the vibroarthrographic (VAG) signals. These signals can be used as useful indicators of osteoarthritis (OA) status for supplementing conventional X-ray imaging in the diagnosis of knee OA. In this study, a non-invasive knee OA diagnosis system was(More)
Model-based movement patterns play a crucial role in evaluating the performance of mobility-dependent Personal Communication Service (PCS) strategies. This study proposes a new normal walk model to represent more closely the daily movement patterns of a mobile station (MS) in PCS networks than a conventional random walk model. The proposed walk model uses a(More)
In grid-based routing protocol, one node in a grid is elected as the grid leader. However, nodes consume extra energy for in the traditional grid leader election, especially in a high node density environment. In this paper, we propose a triangular energy saving route protocol by energy sieving (TESRES) to address this issue. In TESRES, a new grid leader(More)
In this study, we design and present the novel wearable system with the interactive posture caption and recognition functions based on the non-vision over the ZigBee wireless sensor network (ZigBee-WSN). There are two type sensors, 3-axis accelerometer and clip type, to be employed in our wearable system. These sensors are arranged on user’s four(More)
