—Reliability and delay of a single cluster wireless network is well analysed in the literature. Multi-hop communication over the number of clusters is essential to scale the network. Analytical model for reliability and end-to-end delay optimization for multi-hop clustered network is presented in this paper. Proposed model is a three dimensional markov… (More)
—Standard 12-lead (S12) system and Mason-Likar 12-lead (ML12) system despite of being most acceptable systems for clinical usage are not the preferred lead systems for remote monitoring (RM) applications. Usually RM applications involve wireless transmission of signals and a 2-3 lead system is preferred for bandwidth and storage limitations and data… (More)
In this paper, we consider the problem of maximizing the time of first lightpath request rejection, T in the circuit-switched time division multiplexed (TDM) wavelength-routed (WR) optical WDM networks. TDM is incorporated into WDM, to increase the channel utilization when the carried traffic does not require the entire channel bandwidth. In TDM-WDM… (More)
—In a Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) application for ambient pollution monitoring, which involves the deployment of a large number (i.e. ~100) of sensors in India and UK to obtain fine-grain pollution data, the selection of gas sensors and the validity of sensor measurements against ground truth are vitally important to the success of the system.… (More)
Fine grained 1Hz Carbon Monoxide pollution data were collected on a busy road in Hyderabad, India. In this paper we report the findings from analysing the experimental data, in which it was found that the data were log-normally distributed and nonlinear. The dominant frequencies at peak hours were caused by the pattern of traffic flow.
—Mobile phones or smart phones equipped with different communication technologies and sensors have become pervasive application development platform for opportunistic and human-centric sensing. Optimisation of battery energy consumption and opportunistic sensing coverage are important issues under mobile phone sensing. This paper proposes a simple sampling… (More)
This paper presents a compact hardware-software co-design of Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) on the field programmable gate arrays (FPGA) designed for low-cost embedded systems. The design uses MicroBlaze, a soft-core processor from Xilinx. The computationally intensive operations of the AES are implemented in hardware for better speed. The sub-byte… (More)
—Higher demand for good quality, more reliable and cleaner electrical power has driven the focus towards more robust generation, transmission and distribution framework. It has been envisioned that, a more intelligent grid capable of taking fast and reliable decisions is the need of the hour The Smart Grid. Through intercommunicating devices at every level,… (More)
