In wireless sensor networks, the missing of sensor data is inevitable due to the inherent characteristic of wireless sensor networks, and it causes many difficulties in various applications. To solve the problem, the missing data should be estimated as accurately as possible. In this paper, a k-nearest neighbor based missing data estimation algorithm is(More)
Wireless sensor networks are increasingly being used in applications where QoS and low cost are the overriding considerations. Conventional schemes of using sensor nodes and incorporating these three phenomena (reliability, availability and serviceability) to attain QoS can effectively improve not only the reliability of the overall WSNs but security as(More)
For queries in wireless sensor networks, empty sets may be returned as query results which could confuse users a lot and users obtain no useful information about the monitored objects from the empty sets. To solve the problem, this paper proposes methods to provide users with approximate answer sets in the case where no sensing data satisfies the query(More)
Targeted treatment of ischemic stroke remains problem due to the complex pathogenesis of this disease and the difficulty in drug delivery across the blood-brain barrier (BBB). In the present study, the delivery efficiency of cationic bovine serum albumin-conjugated tanshinone IIA PEGylated nanoparticles (CBSA-PEG-TIIA-NPs) in rat brain was investigated. We(More)
One of the most striking properties of natural image statistics is the scale invariance. Some earlier studies have assumed that the kurtosis of marginal band pass filter response to be constant throughout scales for a natural image. In our study, this assumption is loosened by adaptively estimating an optimal filter computation whose response distributions(More)
Although TRAIL (tumor-necrosis-factor (TNF)-related apoptosis-inducing ligand) has been considered a promising broad-spectrum antitumor agent, its further application was limited by poor drug delivery and TRAIL-resistant tumors. A three-step drug delivery strategy was applied to TRAIL for solving these two obstacles in the form of PEG-TRAIL-MMAE (Monomethyl(More)
The common track fusion algorithms in multi-sensor systems have some defects, such as serious imbalances between accuracy and computational cost, the same treatment of all the sensor information regardless of their quality, high fusion errors at inflection points. To address these defects, a track fusion algorithm based on the reliability (TFR) is presented(More)
