The Smart Grids (SGs) are regarded as the new generation of electric power systems, combining the development of Information Technology (IT), distributed systems and Artificial Intelligence (AI) for more features on the real-time monitoring of the Demand / Response (DR) and the energy consumption. An approach based on the use of Multi-Agent Systems (MAS) to(More)
The Internet is smoothly migrating from an Internet of people towards an Internet of Things (IoT). By 2020, it is expected to have 50 billion things connected to the Internet. However, such a migration induces a strong level of complexity when handling interoperability between the heterogeneous Internet things, e.g., RFIDs (Radio Frequency Identification),(More)
The ability to identify people has numerous applications including in smart buildings where the building can be customized to the needs of its occupants or for other applications such as in assisted living and customer behavior analysis in commercial settings. There are different methods used for occupant identification. Some are intrusive such as using(More)
—The electricity grid is crucial to our lives. Households and institutions count on it. In recent years, the sources of energy have become less and less available and they are driving the price of electricity higher and higher. It has been estimated that 40% of power is spent in residential and institutional buildings. Most of this power is absorbed by(More)
The existence of two stationary solutions of the nonlinear Boltzmann equation for inelastic hard spheres or disks is investigated. They are restricted neither to weak dissipation nor to small gradients. The one-particle distribution functions are assumed to have an scaling property, namely that all the position dependence occurs through the density and the(More)
Direct experimental measurement techniques have had limited success in the determination of the two-dimensional (2D) doping profile of a MOSFET. In this paper, we describe an alternative methodology that uses source/drain (S/D) diode and gate overlap capacitance measurements to determine the 2D profile by inverse modeling [l]. Our approach is based on the(More)
