This article describes the word reading skills in English and Spanish for a sample of 244 Spanish-speaking, English-learning (hence, bilingual) students in first grade and presents a predictive model for English word reading skills. The children in the study were assessed at the end of kindergarten and first grade, respectively. Data were gathered with 3(More)
This paper proposes an analytical framework for performance evaluation of TCP (Transport Control Protocol) over adaptive wireless links. Specifically, we include adaptation of power, modulation format and error recovery strategy, and incorporate some features of wireless fading channels. This framework is then used to pursue joint optimization through(More)
This article reports on a longitudinal analysis of factors that predict the word reading skills in English and Spanish for a sample of 234 Spanish-speaking students in first grade. The children were assessed at the end of preschool, kindergarten, and first grade. Data include three subtests of the Woodcock Language Proficiency Battery and a(More)
This paper focuses on the analysis of fundamental issues which has to be considered in order to gain voice from a wireless sensor network (WSN) that is assumed to be constituted by MicaZ wireless sensor nodes. Problems related to the transport of an audio signal through a wireless channel and sensor nodes are thus analyzed and a project for an audio(More)
A major problem in control over wireless networks is conceiving a joint control and communication system design to optimize a given cost function. To solve this problem we have recently proposed a theoretical framework based on the Platform Based Design (PBD). The first step consists in mapping control specifications onto communication network(More)
OBJECTIVE Most cases of sudden unexpected death in epilepsy (SUDEP) follow a seizure, and most deaths occur while people are in bed, presumably sleeping. Nocturnal seizures are reported to be a risk factor for SUDEP. People with nocturnal frontal lobe epilepsy (NFLE) have seizures predominantly or exclusively during sleep, often many times per night. The(More)
— An adaptive handover algorithm for wireless communication systems is addressed in this extended abstract. Moving from the Generalized Extended Least Square handover algorithm in [1], we model the handover mechanism as an hybrid system, and we include it in a dynamic optimization problem. The objective function takes into account the parameters that(More)
