Large scale path loss measurements in sea port are presented. This investigation is useful before deploying worldwide interoperability for microwave access (WiMAX) equipments to provide last mile broadband wireless access (BWA) for ships and boats in the sea port. Measurements were carried out at 5.8 GHz. Two-ray model fits measured large scale path loss(More)
We envisage coverage extension of the high bit rate terrestrial communication networks to the ships to reduce the cost in maritime communications. The coverage extension is achieved by forming a mobile wireless mesh network amongst neighboring ships, marine beacons and buoys. The wireless mesh network will be connected to the terrestrial networks across(More)
—It is expected that future ITS (Intelligent Transport System) network will involve a lot of mobile equipments and form a complex network. Maintaining the good performance of this complex network is a complicated task, and efficient load balancing plays an important role. In this paper, a new load balancing solution is proposed. In this solution, the load(More)
A spectroscopic assay based on surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS) has been developed for rapid genotyping of the measles virus (MeV). Silver nanorods fabricated using an oblique angle vapor deposition method acted as the SERS-active substrate. The SERS spectra of four separate MeV genotypes, i.e. A, H1, D4 and D9, and two separate negative media(More)
— Wireless Mesh Networks (WMN) have different characteristics compared with the mobile ad hoc networks (MANET). The issue of Internet access with wireless mesh connectivity is a very important issue in the design of WMNs. In this paper, we propose a novel multi-paths routing framework for the Internet access through WMNs by using multiple access routers(More)
Radio frequencies have become a scarce resource in many countries and white space communication promised to alleviate this problem. Standardization for devices operating in white space frequencies became indispensable and 1900.7 working group was formed from the white space ad hoc group in DySPAN for that task. This paper aims to provide an overall(More)
A microfluidic platform designed for point-of-care PCR-based nucleic acid diagnostics is described. Compared to established microfluidic PCR technologies, the system is unique in its ability to achieve exceptionally rapid PCR amplification in a low cost thermoplastic format, together with high temperature accuracy enabling effective validation of reaction(More)
