— This paper proposes a novel chaos reducing information dissemination approach for spatio-temporal traffic information related to first responders and evacuation scenarios using Vehicular Ad Hoc Networks (VANETs). In our approach, we provide an emergency vehicle path clearing technique. Therefore, traffic confusion and chaos is lowered on evacuation and(More)
OBJECTIVE In diabetes, β-cell mass is not static but in a constant process of cell death and renewal. Inactivating mutations in transcription factor 1 (tcf-1)/hepatocyte nuclear factor1a (hnf1a) result in decreased β-cell mass and HNF1A-maturity onset diabetes of the young (HNF1A-MODY). Here, we investigated the effect of a dominant-negative HNF1A mutant(More)
The diffusion of time-critical information, like traffic alert messages, is critical and challenging in Vehicle Ad hoc Networks (VANETs). It is critical because lives of people on the road are at stake and is challenging due to a combination of highly dynamic mobility patterns, which result in rapidly changing network topologies, combined with the fast(More)
This paper proposes an efficient chaos-reducing information dissemination approach for spatio-temporal traffic information related to first responders and planned evacuation scenarios using Vehicular Ad Hoc Networks (VANETs). VANETs have recently been proposed as one of the promising ad-hoc networking techniques that can be used to provide a safe and(More)
One of the major challenges in wireless sensor networks (WSNs) design lies in the constrained energy available to sensor nodes. Workforce selection strategies which unevenly consume sensor energy can reduce the lifetime of the network significantly. This work proposes and evaluates a new class of strategies that provides an energy efficient workforce(More)
BACKGROUND Availability of Emergency Obstetric Care (EmOC) is crucial to avert maternal death due to life-threatening complications potentially arising during delivery. Research on the determinants of utilization of EmOC has neglected urban settings, where traffic congestion can pose a significant barrier to the access of EmOC facilities, particularly for(More)
Erratum In the original publication of this article [1], one of the co-authors' names contained a spelling error. ' Alayne M. Adam' should therefore have been listed as ' Alayne M. Adams'. The original publication has now been modified as well to reflect these changes. References 1. Panciera R, et al. The influence of travel time on emergency obstetric care(More)
