In this paper, the concept of a 3 layer distributed sensor network for patient monitoring and care is introduced. The envisioned network has a leaf node layer (consisting of patient sensors), a intermediate node layer (consisting of the supervisory processor residing with each patient) and the root node processor (residing at a central monitoring facility).(More)
A new interpretation of Dempster–Shafer conditional notions based directly upon the mass assignments is provided. The masses of those propositions that may imply the complement of the conditioning proposition are shown to be completely annulled by the conditioning operation; conditioning may then be construed as a re-distribution of the masses of some of(More)
Fusion of hard data with soft data is an issue that has attracted recent attention. An effective fusion strategy requires an analytical framework that can capture the uncertainty inherent in hard and soft data. For instance, computational linguistic parsing of text-based data generates logical propositions that inherently possess significant semantic(More)
A novel framework named evidence filtering for processing information from multiple sensor modalities is presented. This approach is based on conditional belief notions in Dempster-Shafer (DS) evidence theory and enables one to directly process temporally and spatially distributed sensor data and infer on the ldquofrequencyrdquo characteristics of various(More)
In the rst part of this paper it is shown that long access delays are not necessarily detrimental to the stability of local area network embedded control systems. In the second part we show that (under some mild conditions on the control system) scheduling in the return path is not needed. This is a consequence of the fact that for local area networks the(More)
This paper establishes two major classes of system theoretic models that allow descriptions of interconnections of discrete time systems over communications channels with time-variant delays. Unlike previous followed approaches, the introduced models allows to separate the time-variant delay from the system interface. Applications of these models include(More)
