In this work, we envision a vehicular cloud involving cars in the parking lot of a major airport. The owners of these cars are typically on travel for several days, providing a pool of cars that can serve as the basis for a data center at the airport. We assume that the cars that participate in the vehicular cloud are plugged into a standard power outlet… (More)
Anomalies in shape, number and structure of deciduous and permanent teeth in patients with different kinds of clefts are a sign of a disturbed developmental process. Their localisation, typically in the immediate vicinity of the cleft formation, and their exclusive presence at the upper medium and lateral incisors led to the presumption of a direct… (More)
The authors describe the use of machine punch cards in the framework of the examination of a great group of subjects and present a processing scheme. They advocate the use of this technique in case of abundance of informations and relatively simple questions.
In principle it is possible to homogenize the enamel surface by melting structural elements with the continuous wave CO2 laser. Using the precision instrument NEOPHOT 2 (Carl Zeiss JENA) the microhardness of extracted laserexposed premolares were tested so as to clarify the functional strain capasity and the mechanical characteristics of laserexposed… (More)
The mobile observer method has been used by traffic engineers since the middle of the last century to estimate traffic velocity, flow and density. Although simple and intuitive, the method suffers from two major issues. First, the vehicle must traverse a given road segment both in the direction of the traffic whose parameters are of interest and also in the… (More)
In Mobile Ad Hoc Networks (MANETs) nodes are allowed to move freely which causes instability in the network. To handle this, the nodes are grouped into clusters which make the topology of the network appear more stable. In proposed algorithms, the size of these clusters has been either ignored or handled insufficiently. This Thesis proposes a penalty-based… (More)
