The gene for Progressive myoclonus epilepsy of Unverricht-Lundborg type (EPM1) has previously been mapped by linkage to markers on chromosome 21q22.3. By analyzing crossover events in multiplex disease families with newly detected markers from the region we were able to narrow the localization of EPM1 to an interval of approximately 7 cM, between loci(More)
The street light system, using a Power Line network, requires detailed knowledge about transmission medium, such as: transfer function, parasitic capacity, induced inductances and noise due to capacitive coupling between phases, in order to undertake a reliable master/slave communication. This paper proposes an innovative algorithm useful for a network(More)
Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) are increasingly used in different application fields thanks to several advantages such as cost-effectiveness, scalability, flexibility and self-organization. A hot research topic concerns the study of algorithms and mechanisms for reducing the power consumption of the nodes in order to maximize their lifetime. To this end,(More)
Power Line Communications (PLCs) are used for measuring various metrics, that can give signs about the health of the power grid equipment and for maintenance actions. These measurements may include the values of voltage, current, temperature and pressure of the power grid equipment. As it is known, the communication may also depend on the structure of the(More)
Wireless devices are mainly used in mobile systems because they do not need any physical connection for the communication and the energy supply. Therefore, reducing the power consumption of their batteries is a critical task in order to prolong their lifetime. The main aim of this paper is to dynamically adjust both the sleeping time and the transmission(More)
