Mobile social sensing network is one kind of emerging networks in which sensing tasks are performed by mobile users and sensing data are shared and collected by leveraging the intermittent inter-contacts among mobile users. Traditional ad hoc routing protocols are inapplicable or perform poorly for data collection or data sharing in such mobile social networks because nodes are seldom fully connected. In recent years, many routing protocols (especially social-based routing) are proposed to im...

For desirable quality of service, content providers aim at covering content requests by large network caches. Content caching has been considered as a fundamental module in network architecture. There exist few studies on the optimization of content caching. Most existing works focus on the design of content measurement, and the cached content is replaced by a new one based on the given metric. Therefore, the performance for service provision with multiple levels is decreased. This paper inve...

Numerous privacy-preserving issues have emerged along with the fast development of the Internet of Things. In addressing privacy protection problems in Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN), secure multi-party computation is considered vital, where obtaining the Euclidian distance between two nodes with no disclosure of either side’s secrets has become the focus of location-privacy-related applications. This paper proposes a novel Privacy-Preserving Scalar Product Protocol (PPSPP) for wireless senso...

Coverage is an important issue in the area of wireless sensor networks, which reflects the monitoring quality of the sensor networks in scenes. Most sensor coverage research focuses on the ideal two-dimensional (2-D) plane and full three-dimensional (3-D) space. However, in many real-world applications, the target field is a 3-D complex surface, which makes conventional methods unsuitable. In this paper, we study the coverage problem in directional sensor networks for complex 3-D terrains, an...

Network virtualization is a promising approach for resource management that allows customized Virtual Networks (VNs) to be multiplexed on a shared physical infrastructure. A key function that network virtualization can provide is Virtual Network Embedding (VNE), which maps virtual networks requested by users to a shared substrate network maintained by an Internet service provider. Existing research has worked on this, but has primarily focused on maximizing the revenue of the Internet service...

Classification is an important machine learning problem, and decision tree construction algorithms are an important class of solutions to this problem.?RainForest is a scalable way to implement decision tree construction algorithms.?It consists of several algorithms, of which the best one is a hybrid between a traditional recursive implementation and an iterative implementation which uses more memory but involves less write operations.?We propose an optimized algorithm inspired by RainForest....

In-house part supply affects the efficiency of mixed-model assembly lines considerably. Hence, we propose a reliable Just-In-Time part supply strategy with the use of decentralized supermarkets. For a given production sequence and line layout, the proposed strategy schedules tow train routing and delivery problems jointly to minimize the number of employed town trains and the traveling time, while ensuring that stations never run out of parts. To solve this problem, a mathematical formulation...

Graphene has been widely used in gas-sensing applications due to its large specific surface area and strong adsorption ability. Among different forms of graphene used as gas-sensing materials, reduced graphene oxide is one of the most convenient and economical materials to integrate with Si-based electronics, which is very important to graphene-based gas sensors. In addition, the stacking structure of graphene oxide flakes facilitates absorption and detection of gas molecules. Based on reduce...

Short-Term Memory (STM) is a primary capability of the human brain. Humans use STM to remember a small amount of information, like someone’s phone number, for a short period of time. Usually the duration of STM is less than 1 minute. Synapses, the connections between neurons, are of vital importance to memory in biological brains. For mimicking the memory function of synapses, Carbon Nanotube (CNT) networks based thin-film transistors with Electric Double Layers (EDL) at the dielectric/channe...

Nowadays, with improvements in the quality of life, people are paying more attention to their health. Traditional Chinese medicine offers great advantages for daily care. In this paper, we present the development of a remote health care system, namely, Chinese Pulse Condition Acquisition System (CPCAS), based on the principle of Chinese pulse diagnosis in Chinese medicine and a wireless sensor network. We designed a remote health care terminal with a mini-pulse collection bench to overcome th...

At present, robot embedded systems have some common problems such as closure and poor dynamic evolution. Aiming at resolving this situation, our paper focuses on improvements to the robot embedded system and sets up a new robot system architecture, and we propose a syncretic mechanism of a robot and SoftMan (SM). In the syncretic system, the structural organization of the SoftMan group and its modes are particularly important in establishing the task coordination mechanism. This paper, theref...
