—Advances in micro robots in non-invasive medicine have enabled physicians to perform diagnostic and therapeutic procedures with higher resolution and lower risk than before. However, navigation and precise localisation of such micro robots inside human body still remains a challenge. This is mostly due to the 1) lack of precise communication channel(More)
OBJECTIVE Odor exposure is an environmental stressor that is responsible of many citizens complains about air pollution in non-urban areas. However, information about the exposure-response relation is scarce. One of the main challenges is to identify a measurable compound that can be related with odor annoyance responses. We investigated the association(More)
Wireless sensor networks (WSN) have been studied in a variety of scenarios over recent years, but work has almost exclusively been done using air as the transmission media. In this article some of the challenges of deploying a WSN in a heterogeneous biomass, in this case silage, is handled. The dielectric constant of silage is measured using an open-ended(More)
Wireless capsule endoscopy (WCE) is an emerging technique to enhance Gastroenterologists information about the patient's gastrointestinal (G.I.) tract. Localization of capsule inside human body in this case is an active area of research. This can be thought of as a sub-domain of micro and bio-robotics fields. If capsule and micro-robot localization problem(More)
Wind turbine generators (WTGs) are required to operate at different levels of voltage fluctuations in the power grid. When the fluctuations exceed the standard levels, i.e. over and under voltage, they affect the performance of WTGs. In this study, we estimate the distribution of over and under voltages by utilizing Extreme Value Analysis. Assuming voltage(More)
We study the asymptotic properties of a semi-definite programming (SDP) based localization algorithm in a network of wireless sensors with an inhomogeneous RF transmission interface given incomplete and inaccurate pairwise distance measurements between sensor-sensor and sensor-anchors. A novel relaxed SDP approach based on a graph realization problem with(More)
In this study, we derive novel intra-body path loss channel models for wave propagation in wireless capsule endoscopy, i.e., propagation through the gastrointestinal tract and the abdominal wall. We formulate an adaptive attenuation parameter as a function of permittivity, conductivity and the thickness of various layers between the transmitter and the(More)
In this paper, we propose a novel robust probabilistic approach based on the Bayesian inference using received-signal-strength (RSS) measurements with varying path-loss exponent. We derived the probability density function (pdf) of the distance between any two sensors in the network with heterogeneous transmission medium as a function of the given RSS(More)
