The proliferation of mobile devices, location-based services and embedded wireless sensors has given rise to applications that seek to improve the efficiency of the transportation system. In particular, new applications are already available that help travelers to find parking in urban settings by conveying the parking slot availability near the desired(More)
With the proliferation of location-based services, mobile devices, and embedded wireless sensors, more and more applications are being developed to improve the efficiency of the transportation system. In particular, new applications are arising to help vehicles locate open parking slots. Nevertheless, while engaged in driving, travelers are better suited(More)
In this paper, we consider a traffic information sharing system based on Floating Car Data (FCD). FCD is one of the methods used to gather traffic information. It uses vehicles as sensor nodes that transmit their speed to the server. The server then broadcasts the updated speed data to all vehicles on the road so that vehicles can compute optimal travel(More)
The proliferation of mobile devices, location-based services and embedded wireless sensors has given rise to applications that seek to improve the efficiency of the transportation system. In particular, new applications are arising that help travelers find parking in urban settings. They convey the parking slot availability around users on their mobile(More)
In this paper we present a model of spatially located mobile agents and static resources, in which the agents are looking to obtain one of the resources while minimizing their costs to obtain the resource. The proliferation of mobile devices, location-based services and embedded wireless sensors has given rise to applications that could help the mobile(More)
In this paper, we establish a framework for the spatio-temporal resource search problem. In a spatio-temporal resource search problem, a mobile agent tries to find a desired static resource in a network. The resources are statically located in the network. The task is to guide the agent through the network to find a resource with lowest possible cost. There(More)
Naphthalene is an environmental toxicant to which humans are exposed. Naphthalene causes dose-dependent cytotoxicity to murine airway epithelial cells but a link between exposure and human pulmonary disease has not been established. Naphthalene toxicity in rodents depends on P450 metabolism. Subsequent biotransformation results in urinary elimination of(More)
Objectives of the studies were to: (1) determine by quantitative measurements and computer simulation modeling the effectiveness of the noise barriers; (2) determine the traffic noise intrusion through openings in the barriers at streets entering the residential areas; (3) conduct a community opinion survey to characterize the subjective effectiveness of(More)
