This paper describes the design of an experiment that tests the e↵ectiveness of mobile applications for a weight loss program. The mobile application combines three modules: a tailored text messaging service, a goal setting and progress monitoring support, and a social network setup to achieve the weight management goals. We describe the design of a(More)
—This paper presents a learning fuzzy controller which can adapt with changing performance requirements. During the past decade we have witnessed a rapid growth in the number and variety of applications of fuzzy logic ranging from consumer electronics and industrial process control to decision support system and financial systems. The fuzzy controller(More)
A fundamental design issue for Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) protocols, applications and services is to introduce energy-efficiency to extend network lifetime. In this paper, we mathematically model and optimize our proposed Energy-efficient Time Synchronization Protocol (ETSP [21]) .that provides significant energy improvements over compared(More)
