Automotive traffic monitoring using probe vehicles with Global Positioning System receivers promises significant improvements in cost, coverage, and accuracy. Current approaches, however, raise privacy concerns because they require participants to reveal their positions to an external traffic monitoring server. To address this challenge, we propose a system(More)
Traffic monitoring using probe vehicles with GPS receivers promises significant improvements in cost, coverage, and accuracy over dedicated infrastructure systems. Current approaches, however, raise privacy concerns because they require participants to reveal their positions to an external traffic monitoring server. To address this challenge, we describe a(More)
This article presents the Mobile Century field experiment, performed on February 8, 2008, to demonstrate the feasibility of a prototype location-based service: real-time traffic estimation using GPS data from cellular phones only. Mobile Century consisted of 100 vehicles carrying a GPS-equipped Nokia N95 cell phone driving loops on a 10-mile stretch of(More)
AIM To present validation studies performed for the implementation of existing and new technologies to increase the efficiency in the forensic DNA Section of the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office (PBSO) Crime Laboratory. METHODS Using federally funded grants, internal support, and an external Process Mapping Team, the PBSO collaborated with forensic(More)
The success of the Virginia Division of Forensic Science's DNA program is based upon managing the DNA program from a central location, consistency in the methods and procedures used, cooperation and continual dedication of the laboratory staff, as well as overseeing of all technical issues by a single technical leader. To streamline the analysis of the(More)
A fluorescence energy transfer (ET) dye-labeled STR typing system (ET 16-plex) is developed for the markers used in the commercial STR typing kit PowerPlex 16, and its performance assessed using a 96-lane microfabricated capillary array electrophoresis (muCAE) system. The ET 16-plex amplicons displayed 1.6-9-fold higher fluorescence intensities compared to(More)
In the early 1990's, the importance of establishing a DNA Data Bank of convicted sex offender samples for comparison to unsolved cases became apparent to the Virginia Division of Forensic Science to help identify potential perpetrators. Ultimately, through the expansion of the data basing law to include all convicted offenders and juveniles convicted of a(More)
The term Traffic Analysis is the process to identify the different aspects of traffic and resolve the problems in concerning areas. These traffic problems may belong to traffic congestion and in order to remove this traffic congestion, determination of Road Traffic Volume or Road Traffic Identification is expected. There are several techniques [6], [9],(More)
