Wireless sensor network (WSN) testbeds are useful because they provide a way to test applications in an environment that makes it easy to deploy experiments, configure them statically or dynamically, and gather performance information. Sensor data collected in the field can be replayed on nodes, and new ways to process the data can be tested easily.(More)
Broad, multispecific CD4(+) and CD8(+) T-cell responses to the hepatitis C virus (HCV), as well as virus-cross-neutralizing antibodies, are associated with recovery from acute infection and may also be associated in chronic HCV patients with a favorable response to antiviral treatment. In order to recapitulate all of these responses in an ideal vaccine(More)
Wireless sensor network (WSN) testbeds are useful because they provide a way to test applications in an environment that makes it easy to deploy experiments, configure them statically or dynamically, and gather performance information. However, WSNs are typically composed of low-cost devices and tend to be unreliable, with failures a common phenomenon.(More)
Acquired resistance of tumor cells during treatment limits the clinical efficacy of radiotherapy. Recent studies to investigate acquired resistance under treatment have focused on intercellular communication because it promotes survival and aggressiveness of tumor cells, causing therapy failure and tumor relapse. Accordingly, a better understanding of the(More)
Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) comprised of low-cost devices tend to be unreliable, with failures a common phenomenon. Being able to accurately observe the network health status — of nodes of each type and links of each type — is essential to properly configure applications on WSN fabrics and to interpret the information collected from them.

Full scale experimentation with wireless networks in deployment environments is difficult, so a common validation technique is to test a prototype network in a convenient environment prior to deployment. In this paper, we consider the problem of obtaining comparable protocol performance when the test and deployment environments differ in RF propagation(More)
Expert's risk evaluation of radiation exposure strongly influences the public's risk perception. Experts can inform laypersons of significant radiation information including health knowledge based on experimental data. However, some experts' radiation risk perception is often based on non-conclusive scientific evidence (i.e., radiation levels below 100(More)
Predicting and bounding performance is a fundamental requirement in wireless sensor network (WSN) protocol development. To support a fast development cycle principled methods are required for experimentation with wireless protocols in testbed environments that can provide repeatable performance guarantees in the target environment. In this paper we propose(More)
A modeling support system that provides an easy and fast FE-modeling for the static and durability analysis of the lower arm in an automobile suspension module is described. The system can exclude human interactions such as meshing using pre-defined shell elements and can impose complicated boundary and loading conditions via a multi-point constraints(More)
