—Indoor Wireless sensor networks require a highly dynamic, adaptive routing scheme to deal with the high rate of topology changes due to fading of indoor wireless channels. Besides that, energy consumption rate needs to be consistently distributed among sensor nodes and efficient utilization of battery power is essential. If only the link reliability metric(More)
It has been suggested that affective states can guide higher level cognitive processes and that such affective guidance may be particularly important when real-life decisions are made under uncertainty. We ask whether affect guides decisions in a laboratory task that models real-life decisions under uncertainty. In the Iowa gambling task (IGT), participants(More)
—Designing a reliable and trusted routing scheme for resource-constrained Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) is a challenging task due to the lack of infrastructure and the highly dynamic network topology. To ensure trustworthy end-to-end communications between wirelessly connected sensor nodes, a considerable amount of bidirectional traffic must be relayed(More)

Acknowledgements In retrospect I will consider my graduate career to be one of the most lively and exciting times of my life. It could be no less considering the contributions and support of so many outstanding colleagues. Dan Friedman and Kent Dybvig both supported me as advisors. Dan taught me to strive for clarity and simplicity without regard for(More)
A measurement-based design and evaluation methodology for embedded control systems is presented that features 1) better control of executions through reduction of non-deter-minism, 2) certified behavior of executions, 3) real-time monitoring of operations, functionalities and modules, which 4) allows adaptation to non-certified behavior. Using principles of(More)

High-resolution X-band polarimetric radar data were collected in 19 snowstorms over northern Colorado in early 2013 as part of the Front Range Orographic Storms (FROST) project. In each case, small, vertically erect convective turrets were observed near the echo top. These ''generating cells'' are similar to those reported in the literature and are(More)
