Designing Blended Experiences: Laugh Traders Design Fiction, 2021 Farmingdale State College
Designing Blended Experiences: Laugh Traders Design Fiction, Brian J. Okeefe
The increasing ubiquity of interactions that involve complementary digital content, physical objects, and spaces, brings about new challenges for designers. There is a need to embed designs in legacy systems, whether those are existing physical structures or existing digital platforms. Traditional approaches to product design, interaction design, and user experience design often do not take this new context into account. Many systems do not consider how designers produce new digital and physical experiences that work harmoniously, while supporting new interactions and relationships with people (Imaz and Benyon 2007; Jetter, Geyer, Schwarz & Reiterer 2012). To address this, we propose the idea ...
An Efficient Multi-Message And Multi-Receiver Signcryption Scheme For Heterogeneous Smart Mobile Iot, Jianying Qiu, Kai Fan, Kuan Zhang, Qiang Pan, Hui Li, Yintang Yang
Faculty Publications from the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering
The Internet of Things (IoT) is developing towards smart and mobile Internet of Things (SM-IoT), which has made great progress. Due to the inherent heterogeneity, distribution, intensive communication, and resource constraints of SM-IoT, efficient security and privacy communication protocols become a particularly critical challenge. Signcryption has received considerable attention. Various signcryption schemes have been proposed to solve secure communication. However, most of them are low in efficiency, without the consideration of characteristics of the SM-IoT. In this paper, we propose a signcryption scheme to achieve efficient secure multi-message and multi-receiver communication for the heterogeneous and distributed SM-IoT. We develop Identity-based ...

Reconfiguring Non-Convex Holes In Pivoting Modular Cube Robots, 2021 University of Pennsylvania
Reconfiguring Non-Convex Holes In Pivoting Modular Cube Robots, Daniel Adam Feshbach, Cynthia Sung
Lab Papers (GRASP)
We present an algorithm for self-reconfiguration of admissible 3D configurations of pivoting modular cube robots with holes of arbitrary shape and number. Cube modules move across the surface of configurations by pivoting about shared edges, enabling configurations to reshape themselves. Previous work provides a reconfiguration algorithm for admissible 3D configurations containing no non-convex holes; we improve upon this by handling arbitrary admissible 3D configurations. The key insight specifies a point in the deconstruction of layers enclosing non-convex holes at which we can pause and move inner modules out of the hole. We prove this happens early enough to maintain connectivity ...
Dynamic Planning Networks, 2021 Western University
Dynamic Planning Networks, Norman Tasfi, Miriam A M Capretz
Electrical and Computer Engineering Publications
We introduce Dynamic Planning Networks (DPN), a novel architecture for deep reinforcement learning, that combines model-based and model-free aspects for online planning. Our architecture learns to dynamically construct plans using a learned state-transition model by selecting and traversing between simulated states and actions to maximize information before acting. DPN learns to efficiently form plans by expanding a single action conditional state transition at a time instead of exhaustively evaluating each action, reducing the number of state-transitions used during planning. We observe emergent planning patterns in our agent, including classical search methods such as breadth-first and depth-first search. DPN shows improved ...

Mac For Machine-Type Communications In Industrial Iot—Part Ii: Scheduling And Numerical Results, Jie Gao, Mushu Li, Weihua Zhuang, Xuemin Shen, Xu Li
Electrical and Computer Engineering Faculty Research and Publications
In the second part of this article, we develop a centralized packet transmission scheduling scheme to pair with the protocol designed in Part I and complete our medium access control (MAC) design for machine-type communications in the industrial Internet of Things. For the networking scenario, fine-grained scheduling that attends to each device becomes necessary, given stringent Quality-of-Service (QoS) requirements and diversified service types, but prohibitively complex for a large number of devices. To address this challenge, we propose a scheduling solution in two steps. First, we develop algorithms for device assignment based on the analytical results from Part I, when ...
