Previous stability analysis of the particle swarm optimizer was restricted to the assumption that all parameters are nonrandom, in effect a deterministic particle swarm optimizer. We analyze the stability of the particle dynamics without this restrictive assumption using Lyapunov stability analysis and the concept of passive systems. Sufficient conditions(More)
Smartphone applications (Apps) provide a new way to deliver healthcare, illustrated by the fact that healthcare Apps are estimated to make up over 30% of new Apps currently being developed; with this number seemingly set to increase as the benefits become more apparent. In this paper, using the development of an In Vitro Fertilisation (IVF) treatment stress(More)
The last few years have seen the emergence of many new technologies that can potentially have major impacts on Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS). One of these technologies is a micro-electromechanical device called smartdust. A smartdust device (or a mote) is typically composed of a processing unit, some memory, and a radio chip, which allows it to(More)
Wireless communication technologies are expected to be widely employed in the near future in Intelligent Transport System applications. The important innovations in wireless and digital electronics will support many applications in the areas of safety, environmental and emissions control, driving assistance, diagnostics and maintenance in the transport(More)
Recent advances in electronics and wireless communication systems have brought many different variants of wireless sensor devices (motes) from industry and institutions. As a result the development and deployment of intelligent transport applications has become complicated due to the diversity of sensors and communication protocols available. The Embedded(More)
A recent study by the UK Government’s Office of Science and Innovation, which examined how future intelligent infrastructure would evolve to support transportation over the next 50 years looked at a range of new technologies, systems and services that may emerge over that period (UK DfT, 2006). One key class of technology that was identified as having a(More)
Over the last few years many different versions of wireless sensor devices have been designed and built by various companies and institutions. The wireless sensor devices include sensors, microprocessor, bi-directional wireless communication technology and a power supply. This type of tiny wireless micro electro mechanical device has been nicknamed as(More)
The severe energy constraints of wireless sensor networks (WSNs) require energyefficient communication protocols in order to fulfill the objectives of the application. Cross-layer design is a technique which can potentially be used to improve the overall performance of WSNs by way of jointly optimizing and exploiting the interactions between various layers(More)
