Widely distributed mobile vehicles wherein various sensing devices and wireless communication interfaces are installed bring vehicular participatory sensing into practice. However, the heterogeneity of vehicles in terms of sensing capability and mobility, and the participants' expectations on the incentives blackmake the collection of comprehensive sensing(More)
The Vehicular Ad hoc Networks (VANETs) have been recently introduced to provide high-speed Internet access to vehicles by deploying 802.11 enhanced Roadside Units (RSUs) along roads. However, few content downloading oriented RSU deployment strategies have been proposed. In this paper, we propose a new RSU deployment strategy for content downloading in(More)
The wide distribution of mobile vehicles installed with various sensing devices and wireless communication interfaces has made vehicular mobile crowd sensing possible in practice. However, owing to the heterogeneity of vehicles in terms of sensing interfaces and mobilities, collecting comprehensive tempo-spatial sensing data with only one sensing vehicle is(More)
A VANET consists of vehicles equipped with on board units (OBUs) that can communicate with each other and the road side base stations. Due to the mobility and sparse distribution of vehicles, the delivery delay of messages in the VANET is mainly caused by the message transmissions between vehicles. The message delivery delay directly impacts the deployment(More)
With the increasing popularity of smart phones, a new collaborative sensing application, named participatory sensing, gradually appeared. The key idea of participatory sensing is to employ so many users to collect and share sensed data using their mobile phones. Current relevant applications are mainly focused on how to collect sensed data. Few methods have(More)
A novel ionomer was designed that will not poison the catalyst in alkaline fuel cells, by incorporating for the first time N-methyl pyrrolidine-C60 cation in polymeric anion exchange ionomers. The resultant fullerene-based anion exchange ionomer shows an extremely high hydroxide conductivity (182 mS cm(-1)) at a low cation concentration (0.62 mmol g(-1)).
Rational design of free-standing porous carbon materials with large specific surface area and high conductivity is a great need for ligh-weight suprecapacitors. Here, we report a flexible porous carbon film composed of metal-organic framework (MOF)-derived porous carbon polyhedrons and carbon nanotubes (CNTs) as binder-free supercapacitor electrode for the(More)
