An H9N2 virus lethal to chickens was isolated from an acutely ill chicken flock in 2012. Phylogenetic analyses indicated that this virus was phylogenetically related to the Y280 lineage. Sequence analysis showed 1 amino acid deletion in HA1 and 3 amino acid deletions in the NA stalk region.
A key problem of monitoring the traffic state is the localiza-tion and tracking of vehicles and passengers. In this paper, we present a new cooperative localization technique which makes use of collaboration of mobile phones for traffic monitoring. Instead of relying on the signal strength only, our cooperative localization approach utilizes additional… (More)
