Novel Algorithms For Fair Bandwidth Sharing On Counter Rotating Rings, Mete Yilmaz Dec 2012

Novel Algorithms For Fair Bandwidth Sharing On Counter Rotating Rings, Mete Yilmaz

Dissertations

Rings are often preferred technology for networks as ring networks can virtually create fully connected mesh networks efficiently and they are also easy to manage. However, providing fair service to all the stations on the ring is not always easy to achieve.

In order to capitalize on the advantages of ring networks, new buffer insertion techniques, such as Spatial Reuse Protocol (SRP), were introduced in early 2000s. As a result, a new standard known as IEEE 802.17 Resilient Packet Ring was defined in 2004 by the IEEE Resilient Packet Ring (RPR) Working Group. Since then two addenda have been ...


Online State Of Charge And Electrical Impedance Estimation For Multicell Lithium-Ion Batteries, Taesic Kim, Wei Qiao, Liyan Qu Dec 2012

Online State Of Charge And Electrical Impedance Estimation For Multicell Lithium-Ion Batteries, Taesic Kim, Wei Qiao, Liyan Qu

Faculty Publications from the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering

This paper proposes a hybrid battery model-based high-fidelity state of charge (SOC) and electrical impedance estimation method for multicell lithium-ion batteries. The hybrid battery model consists of an enhanced Coulomb counting algorithm for SOC estimation and an electrical circuit battery model. A particle swarm optimization (PSO)-based online parameter identification algorithm is designed to estimate the electrical parameters of the cells sequentially. An SOC compensator is designed to correct the errors of the enhanced Coulomb counting SOC estimations for the cells sequentially. This leads to an accurate, robust online SOC estimation for individual cells of a battery pack. The proposed ...


Addressing The Feasibility Of Usi-Based Threads Scheduler On Polymorphic Computing System, Zhang Zhang Dec 2012

Addressing The Feasibility Of Usi-Based Threads Scheduler On Polymorphic Computing System, Zhang Zhang

Graduate Theses and Dissertations

The consistent advances in IC technology result in ever increasing number of transistors. There is more and more interest attracted on the issue of using these transistors in computing more efficiently. The CMP (Chip Multi &ndash processors) is predicted to be one of the most promising solutions for this problem in future. The heterogeneous CMP is supposed to provide more computing efficiency compared to the homogeneous CMP architecture; but it requires complex processing art for manufacturing, which makes it less competitive in the old era. Nowadays, the complicate SOC(System On Chip) manufacturing techniques are pacing fast. This is leading us inexorably to heterogeneous CMP with diverse computing style resources like general purpose CPU, GPU, FPGA, and ASIC cores. In the heterogeneous CMP architecture, the generous purpose CPU provides coverage for all computing ...

Ict For Poverty Alleviation In Pacific Island Nations: Study Of Icts4d In Fiji, Deogratias Harorimana, Opeti Rokotuinivono, Emali Sewale, Fane Salaiwai, Marica Naulu, Evangelin Roy

Dr Deogratias Harorimana

ICT for Poverty Alleviation in Pacific Island Nations: Study of ICTs4D in Fiji There has been a vague and little knowledge on the role or potential of Information and Communications Technologies (ICTs) in relation to addressing poverty in Fiji. This may be probably due to the newness of the technology in the South Pacific Region as a whole but also probably due to the fact that only 9.7% of the current Fiji 931,000 populations are internet users (ITC Figures 2011). This paper reports on finding how ICTs is contributing towards poverty alleviation in Fiji. On the basis of ...


Application Of Structured Light Imaging For High Resolution Mapping Of Underwater Archaeological Sites, Chris Roman, Gabrielle Inglis, James Rutter Dec 2012

Application Of Structured Light Imaging For High Resolution Mapping Of Underwater Archaeological Sites, Chris Roman, Gabrielle Inglis, James Rutter

Christopher N. Roman

This paper presents results from recent work using structured light laser profile imaging to create high resolution bathymetric maps of underwater archaeological sites. Documenting the texture and structure of submerged sites is a difficult task and many applicable acoustic and photographic mapping techniques have recently emerged. This effort was completed to evaluate laser profile imaging in comparison to stereo imaging and high frequency multibeam mapping. A ROV mounted camera and inclined 532 nm sheet laser were used to create profiles of the bottom that were then merged into maps using platform navigation data. These initial results show very promising resolution ...


Background Radio Frequency Interference Measurements For Wireless Devices In The Electricity Supply Industry, Duane Robinson, Tadeusz A. Wysocki, V. Smith, K. Popovski Dec 2012

Background Radio Frequency Interference Measurements For Wireless Devices In The Electricity Supply Industry, Duane Robinson, Tadeusz A. Wysocki, V. Smith, K. Popovski

Dr Duane Robinson

Incorporation of radio controller units into heavy equipment used in the electricity industry provides numerous advantages including: improved electrical isolation between plant and operator, ability to incorporate an additional remote operator, and reductions in vehicle wiring and hydraulic hoses for equipment control. However, secure operation of vehicles and plant incorporating radio control rely on establishing suitable levels of immunity to possible radio frequency interference. Interference levels in close proximity to high voltage power lines are of special concern to the electricity industry. This paper reports on a preliminary investigation into quantifying the levels of background radio interference at such locations ...


Concept Tests For A New Wire Flying Vehicle Designed To Achieve High Horizontal Resolution Profiling In Deep Water, Chris Roman, Dave Hebert Dec 2012

Concept Tests For A New Wire Flying Vehicle Designed To Achieve High Horizontal Resolution Profiling In Deep Water, Chris Roman, Dave Hebert

Christopher N. Roman

Efficiently profiling the water column to achieve both high vertical and horizontal resolution from a moving vessel in deep water is difficult. Current solutions, such as CTD tow-yos, moving vessel profilers, and undulating tow bodies, are limited by ship speed or water depth. As a consequence, it is difficult to obtain oceanographic sections with sufficient resolution to identify many relevant scales over the deeper sections of the water column. This paper presents a new concept for a profiling vehicle that slides up and down a towed wire in a controlled manner using the lift created by wing foils. The wings ...

Spatiotemporal Capacity Management For The Last Level Caches Of Chip Multiprocessors, Dongyuan Zhan Dec 2012

Spatiotemporal Capacity Management For The Last Level Caches Of Chip Multiprocessors, Dongyuan Zhan

Computer Science and Engineering: Theses, Dissertations, and Student Research

Judicious management of on-chip last-level caches (LLC) is critical to alleviating the memory wall of chip multiprocessors (CMP). Although there already exist many LLC management proposals, belonging to either the spatial or temporal dimension, they fail to capture and utilize the inherent interplays between the two dimensions in capacity management. Therefore, this dissertation is targeted at exploring and exploiting the spatiotemporal interactions in LLC capacity management to improve CMPs' performance. Based on this general idea, we address four specific research problems in the dissertation.

For the private LLC organization, prior-art proposals can improve the efficacy of inter-core cooperative caching at ...

The first stage of this project was the creation of a model which estimates the energy requirements of the traversal of varying terrain types for a six wheel rocker-bogie rover. The wheel/soil interaction model uses Shibly’s ...


Performance Of Java Middleware - Java Rmi, Jaxrpc, And Corba, N. A. B. Gray Dec 2012

Performance Of Java Middleware - Java Rmi, Jaxrpc, And Corba, N. A. B. Gray

Associate Professor Neil Gray

Developers of distributed Java systems can now choose among Java-RMI, CORBA, and Web-Service (JAXRPC) middleware technologies. Performance is one factor that has to be considered in choosing the appropriate technology for a particular application. The results presented in this paper show that the nature of response data has a greater impact on relative performance than has been allowed for in most previous studies. Relative performances of the technologies as measured on simple requests and responses are not representative of the behaviour that can be expected in practical applications.


Asymptotic Data Rates Of Receive-Diversity Systems With Mmse Estimation And Interferers At Correlated Locations, Siddhartan Govindasamy Dec 2012

Asymptotic Data Rates Of Receive-Diversity Systems With Mmse Estimation And Interferers At Correlated Locations, Siddhartan Govindasamy

Siddhartan Govindasamy

An asymptotic technique is presented to characterize the bits/symbol achievable on a representative wireless link in a spatially distributed network with active interferers at correlated positions, N receive diversity branches, and linear Minimum-Mean-Square-Error (MMSE) receivers. The models analyzed include analogs to Matern type I and type II networks. It is found that for our network models, with large N, the correlation between interferer positions does not significantly influence the bits/symbol resulting in simple approximations for the data rates achievable in such networks with moderately large numbers of diversity branches.

Dr Tianbing Xia

Two new constructions of complex orthogonal space-time block codes of order 8 based on the theory of amicable orthogonal designs are presented and their performance compared with that of the standard code of order 8. These new codes are suitable for multi-modulation schemes where the performance can be sacrificed for a higher throughput.


Comments On "A Practical (T, N) Threshold Proxy Signature Scheme Based On The Rsa Cryptosystem", Guilin Wang, Feng Bao, Jianying Zhou, Robert H. Deng Dec 2012

Comments On "A Practical (T, N) Threshold Proxy Signature Scheme Based On The Rsa Cryptosystem", Guilin Wang, Feng Bao, Jianying Zhou, Robert H. Deng

Dr Guilin Wang

In a (t, n) threshold proxy signature scheme based on RSA, any t or more proxy signers can cooperatively generate a proxy signature while t-1 or fewer of them can't do it. The threshold proxy signature scheme uses the RSA cryptosystem to generate the private and the public key of the signers. In this article, we discuss the implementation and comparison of some threshold proxy signature schemes that are based on the RSA cryptosystem. Comparison is done on the basis of time complexity, space complexity and communication overhead. We compare the performance of four schemes: Hwang et al., Wen ...


Proxy Signature Scheme With Multiple Original Signers For Wireless E-Commerce Applications, Guilin Wang, Feng Bao, Jianying Zhou, Robert H. Deng Dec 2012

Proxy Signature Scheme With Multiple Original Signers For Wireless E-Commerce Applications, Guilin Wang, Feng Bao, Jianying Zhou, Robert H. Deng

Dr Guilin Wang

In a proxy signature scheme, a user delegates his/her signing capability to another user in such a way that the latter can sign messages on behalf of the former. We propose an efficient and secure proxy signature scheme with multiple original signers. Our scheme is suitable for wireless electronic commerce applications, since the overheads of computation and communication are low. As an example, we present an electronic air ticket booking scheme for wireless customers.


Predicting Stock Market Using Online Communities Raw Web Traffic Streams, Pierpaolo Dondio Dec 2012

Predicting Stock Market Using Online Communities Raw Web Traffic Streams, Pierpaolo Dondio

Articles

This paper investigates the predictive power of online communities traffic in regard to stock prices. Using the largest dataset to date, spanning 8 years and almost the complete set of SP500 stocks, we analyze the predictive power of raw unstructured traffic by filtering stock daily returns with traffic features. Our results partially challenge the assumption that raw traffic simply trails stock prices, as expected from a noisy signal without the sentiment direction. Raw traffic is shown to predict prices with statistical significance but with small economic impact. Anyway, this impact rises to moderate under the following conditions: 3 to 7 ...


On The Effect Of Adjacent Sector Multiple Access Interference On Space Time Spreading Systems, Peter Vial, Ibrahim Raad, Tadeusz A. Wysocki Dec 2012

On The Effect Of Adjacent Sector Multiple Access Interference On Space Time Spreading Systems, Peter Vial, Ibrahim Raad, Tadeusz A. Wysocki

Dr Peter Vial

Space Time Spreading systems are proposed as a method to enhance communications between the Base Station (BS) and Mobile Station (MS) by using multiple transmit antennas at the Base Station. This provides a form of transmit diversity when there are more than one transmitting antennas. Space Time Spreading systems have been shown to be efficient in their use of the limited number of orthogonal spreading sequences and to provide a diversity gain, which in the case of two transmitter antennas at the BS and one receiving antenna at the MS, is of order two. The paper looks at the effect ...


Direct Sequence Modified Time Hopping Ppm Over Ultra Wideband S-V Channel, Peter Vial, Beata Wysocki, Tadeusz Wysocki Dec 2012

Direct Sequence Modified Time Hopping Ppm Over Ultra Wideband S-V Channel, Peter Vial, Beata Wysocki, Tadeusz Wysocki

Dr Peter Vial

A three position Pulse Position Modulation (PPM) scheme is proposed for a Direct Sequence Time Hopping Ultra Wideband wireless communication system. The channel is based on the Saleh-Valenzuela model. We show that by adapting the Space Time Spreading technique to use three pulse positions in a single input single output system representing -2,0,2 an improvement in Bit Error Rate is achieved compared to sending the same bits using two pulse positions only. In addition, the bit access rate is doubled as two bits can be successfully sent in the same time using our proposed system.

Non-Optimal Receiver For Space Time Spreading Across A Time Hopping Over Ultra Wideband Ppm, Peter Vial, Beata Wysocki, Tadeusz Wysocki

Dr Peter Vial

A novel non-optimal chip based technique is proposed to use two antennas to transmit data across a Direct Sequence Time Hopping Ultra Wideband dual antenna wireless communication system to a single receiver. The spread data is sent over the independent channels using the Space Time Spreading technique to encode the chips which are sent on each antenna simultaneously. A hard decision is made at each chip of the spreading code received based on the known Channel State Information which Pulse Position Modulated signal was received from each antenna. The paper shows that by adapting the Space Time Spreading technique to ...

Optimal Receiver For Space Time Spreading Across A Time Hopping Ppm Over Ultra Wideband Saleh-Valenzuela Mimo Channel, Peter Vial, Beata J. Wysocki, Tadeusz A. Wysocki

Dr Peter Vial

This paper outlines a technique which can use multiple transmit antennas to send more than one binary bit using the same number of transmit antennas over a single transmission. It uses Ultra Wideband orthogonal pulse position modulation to achieve this, with the receiver employing a Rake receiver and a Maximum Ratio Combiner optimal detector. This is done over a Space Time Spreading Time Hopping Ultra Wideband Pulse Position Modulation system assuming a rich multipath Saleh-Valenzuela MIMO channel model. Simulation results indicate that a significant gain can be achieved compared with other proposed schemes utilising multiple transmit antennas for Ultra Wide ...

The study presented in this paper is that of Universal Mobile Telecommunications Systems (UMTS) Turbo Codes across Space Time Spreading channel with one transmitter antenna, one receiver (m = 1) and two transmitter antennas and one receiver (m = 2) to see to what extent the bit error rate (BER) can be improved. Using the Max-log decoding algorithm and 12 iterations it is shown in the simulation results that an extra 5 dB is achievable.


Generalized Williamson And Wallis-Whiteman Constructions For Improved Square Order-8 Cois Stbc, Le Chung Tran, Tadeusz Wysocki, Jennifer Seberry, Alfred Mertins, Sarah A. Spence Dec 2012

Generalized Williamson And Wallis-Whiteman Constructions For Improved Square Order-8 Cois Stbc, Le Chung Tran, Tadeusz Wysocki, Jennifer Seberry, Alfred Mertins, Sarah A. Spence

Dr Le Chung Tran

Constructions of square, maximum rate Complex Orthogonal Space-Time Block Codes (CO STBCs) are well known, however codes constructed via the known methods include numerous zeros, which impede their practical implementation. By modifying the Williamson and Wallis-Whiteman arrays to apply to complex matrices, we propose two methods of construction of square, order-4n CO STBCs from square, order-n codes which satisfy certain properties. Applying the proposed methods, we construct square, maximum rate, order-8 CO STBCs with no zeros, such that the transmitted symbols equally disperse through transmit antennas. Those codes, referred to as the improved square CO STBCs, have the advantages that ...

A Generalized Algorithm For The Generation Of Correlated Rayleigh Fading Envelopes In Radio Channels, Le Chung Tran, Tadeusz Wysocki, Jennifer Seberry, Alfred Mertins Dec 2012

A Generalized Algorithm For The Generation Of Correlated Rayleigh Fading Envelopes In Radio Channels, Le Chung Tran, Tadeusz Wysocki, Jennifer Seberry, Alfred Mertins

Dr Le Chung Tran

Although generation of correlated Rayleigh fading envelopes has been intensively considered in the literature, all conventional methods have their own shortcomings, which seriously impede their applicability. In this paper, a very general, straightforward algorithm for generation of an arbitrary number of Rayleigh envelopes with any desired, equal or unequal power, in wireless channels either with or without Doppler frequency shifts, is proposed. The proposed algorithm can be applied in case of spatial correlation, such as with antenna arrays in Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) systems, or spectral correlation between the random processes like in Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) systems ...

Multi-Modulation Schemes To Increase The Rate Of Space-Time Block Codes In Rayleigh Fading Channels, Le Chung Tran, Tadeusz A. Wysocki, Jennifer Seberry, Alfred Mertins

Dr Le Chung Tran

he paper examines multi-modulation schemes (MMSs) to increase the rate of our two new Complex Orthogonal Designs (CODS) proposed for eight transmit antennas, namely C1 and C2, corresponding to the Amicable Orthogonal Designs (AODs) (~l,l,Z,Z:l,l,Z~) and (8:1,1,1,~1,1,1,4), respectively. In addition, the optimal inter-symbol power allocation in the proposed codes in single modulation as well BS in MMSs in flat Rayleigh fading channels is considered. It turns out that, in some modulation schemes, equal power transmission pure each symbol time slot is not only optimal from ...
