Internet addiction behavior was examined in 6,121 Chinese primary and secondary school students in Hong Kong based on the assessment frameworks of Ivan Goldberg and Kimberly Young. Results showed that scales derived from both frameworks (CIA-Goldberg Scale and CIA-Young Scale) were internally consistent and evidence supporting their validity was found.(More)
BACKGROUND Implicitly learned motor skills are characterized by minimal conscious knowledge of the movements involved and stable performance despite stress, fatigue, or multi-tasking. In contrast, explicitly learned motor skills are characterized by conscious knowledge of the movements and performance that tends to be less stable under stress, fatigue, and(More)
—This paper introduces a novel use of concepts from combinatorial group testing and Kalman filtering in detecting faulty sensors in a network when faults are relatively rare. By assigning sensors to specific groups and performing Kalman filter-based fault detection over these groups, we can obtain a small binary detection outcome, which can be decoded to(More)
— Compact and low-cost sensors used in wireless sensor networks are vulnerable to deterioration and failure. As the number and scale of sensor deployments grow, the failure of sensors becomes an increasingly paramount issue. This paper presents a distributed, reference-free fault detection algorithm that is based on local pair-wise verification between(More)
This poster presents a distributed reference-free fault detection algorithm which is based on local pair-wise verification. We show there exist a linear relationship between the output of any pair of sensors if the system excitations can be aggregated as a single system input. Using this relationship, faulty sensors suffering from sparse spike errors can be(More)
When faulty sensors are rare in a network, diagnosing sensors individually is inefficient. This study introduces a novel use of concepts from group testing and Kalman filtering in detecting these rare faulty sensors with significantly fewer number of tests. By assigning sensors to groups and performing Kalman filter-based fault detection over these groups,(More)
Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) have recently gained the attention of researchers in many challenging aspects. The energy conservation is one of the most important issues in these networks. Due to the limited access to the nodes, both the network structure and the manner of communication between the nodes decide the energy expenditure in WSNs. One of the(More)
