The automotive industry is moving aggressively in the direction of advanced active safety. Dedicated Short Range Communication (DSRC) is a key enabling technology for the next generation communication-based safety applications. One aspect of vehicular safety communication is the routine broadcast of messages among all equipped vehicles. Therefore, channel(More)
'Orang-utan' is derived from a Malay term meaning 'man of the forest' and aptly describes the southeast Asian great apes native to Sumatra and Borneo. The orang-utan species, Pongo abelii (Sumatran) and Pongo pygmaeus (Bornean), are the most phylogenetically distant great apes from humans, thereby providing an informative perspective on hominid evolution.(More)
Dedicated Short Range Communication (DSRC) wireless band, allocated by the FCC for vehicular communication, constitutes the basis for one of the first vehicular ad-hoc networks/systems that is likely to be deployed. Therefore, it is important to characterize the physical properties of the DSRC channel.In this work we propose that due to the complexity,(More)
DSRC is a promising IEEE 802.11 based wireless technology that enables advanced active vehicle safety, among other applications. NS-2 is a common and familiar communication simulation tool for researchers. The current NS-2 distribution package, however, is not completely ready to accommodate the requirements of IEEE 802.11 (i.e. DSRC) based vehicular(More)
Vehicular Ad hoc Networks is a special kind of mobile ad hoc network to provide communication among nearby vehicles and between vehicles and nearby fixed equipments. VANETs are mainly used for improving efficiency and safety of (future) transportation. There are chances of a number of possible attacks in VANET due to open nature of wireless medium. In this(More)
Vehicular Ad-hoc Network (VANET) is an emerging and promising technology that places great demand on the access capability of the existing wireless technology. In VANET one primary issue is Medium Access Control (MAC), which aims to utilize the radio spectrum efficiently, to resolve potential contention and collision among vehicles for using the medium.(More)
The primary focus of this research effort was the tracking of eye movements during complex cognitive tasks. 8 volunteers performed a visual tracking task alone and a combination of the visual task and the auditory Paced Serial Addition Task (PASAT). Results showed a reduction in range on the order of 50% for eye movements and an increase in variability of(More)
Introduction In this class Vikas Taliwal had presented the paper “A decomposition theory for Phylogenetic Networks and Incompatible Characters” by Gusfield et al. In this paper the authors have presented a polynomial time algorithm for reconstructing a phylogentic network with recombination but without homoplasy given a set of taxa represented by sequences(More)
