the IEEE 802.11e standard has been introduced recently for providing quality of service (QoS) capabilities in the emerging wireless local area networks. This standard introduces a contention window based enhanced distributed channel access (EDCA) technique that provides a prioritized traffic to guarantee the minimum bandwidth needed for time critical(More)

Dynamic pricing has become a common form of electricity tariff, where the price of electricity varies in real time based on the realized electricity supply and demand. Hence, optimizing industrial operations to benefit from periods with low electricity prices is vital to maximizing the benefits of dynamic pricing. In the case of water networks, energy(More)
We discuss a recently introduced ECO-driving concept known as smart procurement of naturally generated energy (SPONGE) in the context of plug-in hybrid electric buses. Examples are given to illustrate the benefits of this approach to ECO-driving. Finally, distributed algorithms to realize SPONGE are discussed, paying attention to the privacy implications of(More)
