Monitoring of physical phenomena is one of the most promising application fields of wireless sensor networks. In this work we focus on obtaining the shape of a forest fire. In this kind of applications, the information sensed by network nodes is usually transmitted to a base station located at the border of the network, where it is finally processed.(More)
The objective of this study was to investigate whether the acute haemodynamic effects of angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibition with captopril could be enhanced by oestrogen administration, and then to evaluate the mechanisms involved in this enhancement. All experiments were performed in 18-week-old female spontaneously hypertensive rats arranged in(More)
This paper presents the simulation environment for the EIDOS (equipment destined for orientation and safety) architecture applied to wildfire fighting operations. The development of this environment involves a multidisciplinary study, in which we have to handle several different types of information (geographical data, vegetation models, fire models, etc.)(More)
OBJECTIVE The present study evaluated whether estrogen influences the effect of angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibition in preventing the vascular remodeling induced by hypertension and also investigated the signal mechanism involved in that effect. DESIGN Ten-week-old female spontaneously hypertensive rats were ovariectomized (OVX) and randomly assigned(More)
Disaster management is one of the most promising application fields of wireless sensor networks. In this work we focus on forest fire fighting operations. The role of the sensor network deployed in this scenario will consist in obtaining a representation (or a model) of the fire fronts, and distribute it to the firefighters in the area, in such a way they(More)
Disaster management is one of the most promising application fields of wireless sensor networks. In this application, the role of the sensor network usually consists in obtaining a representation or a model for a physical phenomenon spreading through the area. In this work we focus on forest fire fighting operations, proposing a distributed way for(More)
