Automation of differentials is desirable for economic and time-saving reasons. Over the last 20 years, automated imaging processes have started to be introduced where stained blood films are scanned by a computer-driven microscope and leucocytes classified; however, early methods were slow and had difficulty in classifying abnormal cells. More recently the(More)
—Vehicular Ad-hoc NETworks (VANETs) are an emerging important type of wireless ad-hoc network. Unlike many other types of MANETs, VANET applications such as traffic data dissemination are inherently broadcast oriented and require communication protocols to be anonymous and scalable. Simple broadcast flooding satisfies these requirements, but its performance(More)
Multihop wireless broadcast is an important component in vehicular networks. Many applications are built on broadcast communications, so efficient routing methods are critical for their success. Here, we develop the Distribution-Adaptive Distance with Channel Quality (DADCQ) protocol to address this need and show that it performs well compared to several(More)
Multi-hop wireless broadcast is a critical component in Vehicular Ad-hoc Networks (VANET). Many VA NET applications, such as traffic data dissemination, utilize broadcast as a primary mode of communication. Thus creating efficient broadcast schemes is important for supporting practical VANETs. Multi-hop broadcast protocols are generally composed of two(More)
Broadcast is a critical component in ad-hoc wireless networks. Some vehicular network (VANET) applications in particular use broadcast communications extensively. VANETs exhibit a wide variety of node density and distribution patterns, so broadcast protocols designed to support these applications must be adaptive to those conditions. We show that the(More)
A triplex PCR assay was developed and evaluated for efficacy in detecting Campylobacter jejuni, Salmonella spp., and Escherichia coli O157:H7 in a variety of raw and ready-to-eat food products. Following a short enrichment period, artificially contaminated food samples were subjected to a triplex PCR assay, which incorporated published primers for each food(More)
Multi-hop broadcast routing is a critical component in ad-hoc wireless networks. Vehicular ad-hoc network (VANET) applications for example use broadcast communications extensively. Efficient broadcast protocols are required to enable these applications. Multi-hop broadcast algorithms can roughly be classified as either topological or statistical.(More)
Multi-hop broadcast is an important component in ad-hoc wireless networks. Some vehicular network (VANET) applications in particular use broadcast communications extensively. We propose using the distance-to-mean method to facilitate these applications. The performance of this method depends heavily on the value of the decision threshold, and it is(More)
Multi-hop wireless broadcast is a critical component in ad-hoc wireless networks. Vehicular Ad-hoc Networks (VANET) in particular utilize broadcast as a primary communication mechanism in many applications. Because of their simplicity, statistical broadcasting methods have been adopted in several VANET broadcasting schemes. However, it is difficult to(More)
