In this paper, we propose a localization scheme named Opportunistic Localization by Topology Control (OLTC), specifically for sparse Underwater Sensor Networks (UWSNs). In a UWSN, an unlocalized sensor node finds its location by utilizing the spatio-temporal relation with the reference nodes. Generally, UWSNs are sparsely deployed because of the high(More)
Future large-scale deployment of plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) will render massive energy demand on the electric grid during peak-hours. We propose an intelligent distributed dynamic pricing (D2P) mechanism for the charging of PHEVs in a smart grid architecture-an effort towards optimizing the energy consumption profile of PHEVs users.

A quantitative structure-activity relationship (QSAR) analysis of two related series of the derivatives of 7-substituted imidazo [4,5-b]-quinolin-2-one active as inhibitors of human blood platelet cAMP phosphodiesterase (PDE) is presented with a view to reflecting upon the parametric requirements of the side chain as well as of the N-1 and N-3 substitutions(More)
Quantitative structure-activity relationship (QSAR) analyses of three different series of benzodiazepine ligands, pyridodiindoles, and beta-carbolines, having inverse agonist/antagonist and agonist actions have been performed with a view to understanding their likely mode of action at the benzodiazepine-receptor (BzR). From this study, the in vitro(More)
In this paper, we propose a dynamic duty scheduling scheme for minimizing the energy consumption of the on-field sensor networks in a sensor-cloud application framework. The conjugation of cloud framework with Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) adds enhanced processing and storage capacity to the on-field WSN applications. However, the WSN applications(More)
In this paper, energy trading for the distributed smart grid architecture is projected as an incomplete information game — a viewpoint that contrasts from all the existing pieces of literature available on the broader issue of energy management in smart grid. The incomplete information is considered as the real-time demand and price to grid and customers,(More)
