Target tracking is one of the most important applications of wireless sensor networks. Optimized computation and energy dissipation are critical requirements to maximize the lifetime of the sensor network. There exists a demand for self-organizing and routing capabilities in the sensor network. Existing methods attempting to achieve these requirements, such(More)
Wireless sensor networks (WSN) have affected various military and civilian applications. Target tracking is one of the top applications of WSNs. Efficient computation and energy dissipation are critical requirements for a WSN when used in target tracking. The goals are to maximize the network's lifetime while ensuring accuracy. Existing methods such as the(More)
AIMS The aims of this study were (i) to extend a psychosocial taxonomy of patients with diabetes to a primary care setting, and (ii) to validate the taxonomy using more sophisticated clustering methods across an array of psychological dimensions independent of demographic and medical variables. METHODS In a cross-sectional study, 111 adults with Type 2(More)
Nonterminal blood sample collection of sufficient volume and quality for research is complicated in mice due to their small size and anatomy. Large (>100 μL) nonterminal volumes of unhemolyzed or unclotted blood currently are typically collected from the retroorbital sinus or submandibular plexus. We developed a third method-submental blood collection-which(More)
