This paper deals mainly with state of the art and next-decade technologies for fiber-optic data buses in automotive applications. Nowadays, fiber-optic data buses in automotive applications are exclusively used in the infotainment domain, MOST (Media Oriented System Transport). Current data rates are in the order of 150 MBit/s. Consequently, the use of LEDs(More)
Capacity planning is a challenging issue for designing next generation optical core networks. This paper presents a fuzzy linear programming (FLP) approach for capacity planning in optical networks under long-term demand uncertainty where the information of traffic loads is imprecise by nature. The simplicity of fuzzy logic is integrated with linear(More)
Network resilience is a vital issue in the design of reliable next generation communication networks. The multi­link failure scenarios are practical models in survivable optical network applications where more than one link may fail during network operation. This paper presents a genetic algorithm based approach for dual-link failure coverage in(More)
Accommodating of future demand uncertainty is an important issue in IP networks to continue at acceptable level of service during high traffic load periods. This aspect should also be considered during optical backbones design for high-speed client networks. This paper presents an intelligent fuzzy adaptive approach for spare bandwidth management in Dense(More)
In this paper, the effect of fog on a free space optical (FSO) communication link employing a coherent detection binary-phase-shift-keying modulation (BPSK) scheme is experimentally investigated. The experimental work is carried out in a controlled laboratory environment where fog could be generated and its impact on the FSO link investigated. The(More)
This paper reports experimental results for the performance of a free space optical (FSO) communication link employing a binary-phase-shift-keying subcarrier modulation (BPSK) scheme under the influence of the atmospheric scintillation. A dedicated experimental atmospheric simulation chamber has been built where the effects of weak turbulence regimes on the(More)
In the last decades optical data transmission has spread from telecommunication applications to many more fields. Automobile and aviation applications are common. Like in telecommunications data rates are rapidly rising. Optical data buses in vehicles are almost exclusively used in the infotainment domain, MOST (Media Oriented Systems Transport). Current(More)
Fiber-optic sensors are well suited for the measurement of a variety of physical quantities. Mechanical parameters like force, pressure, path length, velocity, acceleration, rotation rate, vibration, flow rate, filling level, bending, and mechanical strain up to breakage, can be measured. There are sensors for measurement of electric and magnetic fields as(More)
