The ORBIT (Open Access Research Testbed for Next- Generation Wireless Networks) testbed project which aims to provide a flexible, open-access multiuser experimental facility to support research on next-generation wireless networks is presented in this paper. ORBIT measurement overlay framework is used for experiment statistics in a type-safe manner.(More)
• Scale of WLAN – Microsoft's WLAN has over 5000 APs • Need to deploy many monitors – Rapid fading of signal in indoor environment – Multiple orthogonal channels – May need observations from multiple vantage points Š Pinpoint location of rogue AP • Eavesdropping – Passive snooping (perhaps with high-gain antennas) – Nearly impossible to detect –(More)
CONTEXT Deficits in reward processing and their neural correlates have been associated with major depression. However, it is unclear if these deficits precede the onset of depression or are a consequence of this disorder. OBJECTIVE To determine whether anomalous neural processing of reward characterizes children at familial risk for depression in the(More)
This paper presents the software architecture of the ORBIT radio grid testbed. We describe the requirements for supporting the lifecycle of an experiment and how they influenced the overall design of the architecture. We specifically highlight those components and services which will be visible to a user of the ORBIT testbed.
Accurate identification of sparse heterozygous single-nucleotide variants (SNVs) is a critical challenge for identifying the causative mutations in mouse genetic screens, human genetic diseases and cancer. When seeking to identify causal DNA variants that occur at such low rates, they are overwhelmed by false-positive calls that arise from a range of(More)
We present a framework for managing and troubleshooting enterprise wireless networks using desktop infrastructure. The framework is called DAIR, which is short for Dense Array of Inexpensive Radios. Prior proposals in this area include monitoring the network via a combination of access points (APs), mobile clients, and dedicated sensor nodes. We believe(More)
This study examines psychomotor inhibition, sustained attention, and inhibitory attentional control in adolescents (ages 12-18 years) with a nonmanic mood disorder and with a first-degree relative with bipolar I disorder (MD, N = 20) and demographically matched healthy children of parents without any psychiatric disorder (HC, N = 13). MD participants showed(More)
In this paper we present ORBIT measurement library (OML), which is a distributed software framework enabling real-time collection of data in a large distributed environment. The success of a multiuser distributed testbed facility depends largely on the ease of use, remote access as well as on the ease of collecting useful measurements from experimental(More)
OBJECTIVE Recently we have shown that calpain-1 activation contributes to cardiomyocyte apoptosis induced by hyperglycemia. This study was undertaken to investigate whether targeted disruption of calpain would reduce myocardial hypertrophy and fibrosis in mouse models of type 1 diabetes. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS Diabetes in mice was induced by(More)
The management of resources and scheduling computations is a challenging problem in grid. Load Balancing is essential for efficient utilization of resources and enhancing the performance of computational grid. In this paper, we propose a decentralized grid model, as a collection of clusters. We then introduce a Dynamic Load Balancing Algorithm (DLBA) which(More)
