With the introduction of new technology in our daily life, it is essential that this technology is used for the aid of the elderly. Falls cause a very high risk to the elderly's life. Accordingly, this paper's focus is on technology that would aid the elderly. These technologies include: Wearable- based, audio- based, and video-based fall detection systems.(More)
OBJECTIVE The study was designed to answer the question whether a particular (slow/fast) acetylator phenotype is a risk for malignant lymphoma patients. Differences in acetylator phenotypes were previously described in urinary bladder and colorectal carcinoma patients compared to controls. Addressing this issue may help understanding the possible role of(More)
—We consider a Gaussian multiple-access channel (MAC) with an amplify-and-forward (AF) relay, where all nodes except the receiver have multiple antennas and the direct links between transmitters and receivers are neglected. Thus, spatial processing can be applied both at the transmitters and at the relay, which is subject to optimization for increasing the(More)
—The paper aims to study the whole process mathematical model for a supercritical coal-fired power plant. The modeling procedure is based on thermodynamic and engineering principles and the previously published literatures. Model unknown parameters are identified using Genetic Algorithms (GAs) with 600MW supercritical power plant on-site measurement data.(More)
Background.  Despite the low and decreasing prevalence of tuberculosis (TB) in the United States, there remain certain high-risk groups with high incidence rates. The targeted screening and treatment of latent TB infection (LTBI) among these high-risk groups are needed to achieve TB elimination; however, by most accounts, LTBI treatment completion rates(More)
The seismological acquisition and processing at the Egyptian National Seismic Network (ENSN) is a fully automated network system dedicated to the digital acquisition and real-time processing of seismological data. Data are digitized at a sampling rate of 100 samples per second with a High Resolution Digitizer (HRD) or Trident Digitizer from NANOMETRICS. A(More)
Microgrids and Hybrid Electric Vehicles rely on parallel DC/DC converters for power generation. DC/DC converters are connected in parallel to share the same load. The control signals are distributed through wires. The wiring increases the complexity and reduces the reliability. The recent advances in shared wireless networks made them viable and cheap(More)
The topic of modeling and identification of gas turbines has become an interesting research area for many years and will become so for many years to come. This paper clarifies what is known as Canonical Variate Algorithm or canonical variate analysis (CVA) method of subspace state space system identification. A gas turbine operating currently in North(More)
