On-board TCP (obTCP) has been shown to provide significant downloading performance improvement over TCP snoop in moving networks. In this paper, we look into the support for uploading performance of TCP. We believe that this aspect is critical for the general deployment of Internet applications on moving networks. We provide a mathematical model to measure(More)
When multiple industrial robots are deployed in field applications such as grit blasting and spray painting of steel bridges, the environments are unstructured for robot operation and the robot positions may not be arranged accurately. Coordination of these multiple robots to maximize productivity through area partitioning and allocation is crucial. This(More)
There are many benefits for the deployment of multiple autonomous industrial robots to carry out a task, particularly if the robots act in a highly collaborative manner. Collaboration can be possible when each robot is able to autonomously explore the environment, localize itself, create a map of the environment and communicate with other robots. This paper(More)
Uncertainties in base placements of mobile, autonomous industrial robots can cause incomplete coverage in tasks such as grit-blasting and spray painting. Sensing and localization errors can cause such uncertainties in robot base placements. This paper addresses the problem of collaborative complete coverage under uncertainties through appropriate base(More)
Available bit rate (ABR) is an emerging asynchronous transfer mode (ATM)-based telecommunication service, which dynamically allocates bandwidth to the users according to the available bandwidth in the network. However, research shows that ABR-based connections suffer from congestion at LAN–ATM gateway when ATM network abruptly reduces the bandwidth(More)
