BACKGROUND "Airwave" is the new communication system currently being rolled out across the United Kingdom for the police and emergency services, based on the Terrestrial Trunked Radio Telecommunications System (TETRA). Some police officers have complained about skin rashes, nausea, headaches, and depression as a consequence of using their Airwave handsets.(More)
Terrestrial Trunked Radio (TETRA) technology ("Airwave") has led to public concern because of its potential interference with electrical activity in the brain. The present study is the first to examine whether acute exposure to a TETRA base station signal has an impact on cognitive functioning and physiological responses. Participants were exposed to a 420(More)
modulation techniques is shown. It is also demonstrated that when SCM is combined with dense wavelength-division multiplexing (WDM), aggregate data capacity of 200 Gb/s is feasible. Preliminary results demonstrate the possibility of 20-GHz WDM channel spacings, which if scaled show the potential for 1-Tb/s aggregate rates with a bandwidth-length product of(More)
In composite event detection systems such as fire alarms, the two foremost goals are speed and accuracy. One way to achieve these goals is by performing data aggregation at central nodes. This helps reduce energy consumption and redundancy. In this paper we present a new hybrid approach that involves the use of k-means algorithm with neural networks, an(More)
With increasing demand for multimedia content over channels with limited bandwidth and heavy packet losses, higher coding efficiency and stronger error resiliency is required more than ever before. Both the coding efficiency and error resiliency are two opposing processes that require appropriate balancing. On the source encoding side the video encoder(More)
Radio-over-fiber (RoF) schemes offer the possibility of permitting direct access to native format services for the domestic user. A low power requirement and cost effectiveness are crucial to both the service provider and the end user. Here, we present an ultra-low cost and power RoF scheme using direct modulation of commercially-available 1344 nm and 1547(More)
