In this paper, we examine the merit of a simple and lightweight stochastic transmission strategy based on the ALOHA protocol for underwater wireless sensor networks (UWSNs). We use a stochastic scheduling approach in which time is slotted, and each network component transmits according to some probability during each slot. We present objective functions for assigning the transmission probabilities that are aimed at optimizing network performance with respect to the overall network latency and the overall network reliability. We show that there is an easily distributed heuristic policy based on local network density that works well in practice. We also evaluate our approach using numerical simulations. The evaluation results show that even without using explicit control signaling, our lightweight stochastic scheduling method is effective for data transmission in underwater sensor networks. © 2012 IEEE.

With the increasing number of the aging populations across the world, we now face the intractable challenge of providing a better healthcare support for the elderly. Pervasive and context-aware applications have been widely recognized as a promising solution for improving the life quality of the elderly and their family members. In this paper, we present our design and implementation of a context-aware middleware infrastructure for elderly health monitoring and alerting through a widespread deployment of wireless sensor networks and mobile computing devices in the smart family environments. In order to enable proactiveness in applications and services, we especially propose a context prediction scheme by set pair analysis (SPA) method. We have developed a primary prototype system for performance evaluation and functional demonstration of the middleware infrastructure in our research laboratory. The results of the prototype system prove that the middleware infrastructure is efficient and the context prediction scheme is comparatively accurate.

Wireless sensor networks have emerged as fundamentally efficacious tools for monitoring widespread environmental phenomena. To accurately sense and duly track these timevarying phenomena, it may be necessary for each node to locally determine whether it lies at region edge of these phenomena. However, existing researches show that edge detecting techniques are non-trivial to design and implement in arbitrarily deployed sensor networks. In this paper, we propose a novel computational method of edge detecting for wireless sensor networks which utilises a collection of distributed autonomous agents. The goal of the agentbased edge detecting method is to efficiently locate and label various homogeneous regions of the monitored field. Therefore, these autonomous agents will reside in the individual sensor node and execute a series of reactive behavioural responses. We evaluate the performance of the adaptive edge detecting method and conclude that the proposed method readily outperforms its existing counterparts. Copyright © 2013 Inderscience Enterprises Ltd.

New applications such as video conferencing and voice over IP present many challenges to the design of mobile networks. The mobile networks are constantly changing. The latest devices like smart phones, personal digital assistants, and mobile enabled laptops such as Windows Mobile and Windows Phone are truly able to deliver on any mobile broadband. As a July 2010 study by ERICSON, one of the top tier infrastructure suppliers for mobile networks shows, there are approximately five billions cell phone lines in the globe. This survey estimates 3.4 billion smart phone users in 2015. Thus, the Internet service providers must deliver a high quality of service to the customers. The key factor in quality of service is optimization for bandwidth allocation. Various queuing algorithms can be used in case of mobile IPv6 to control bandwidth allocation for instance. In this paper, we present various queuing disciplines in mobile IPv6 network when traffic class fieldin IPv6 is set to reserved, that is, the packets need quality of service throughout, from source to destination. © 2013 NSP Natural Sciences Publishing Cor.

Due to the uncertainty of the factors that influence the income and other characters of floating women in Jiangsu province, we propose using Bayesian Networks to model this kind of system. We use different algorithms for learning Bayesian Networks in order to compare several models. This study of a real problem includes preliminary data processing, the comparison of different algorithms, and the role of using Bayesian Networks for social problems. We suggest that researchers can use Bayesian Networks to explore the potential relationship between variables of complex social problems. © 2010 Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg.

This paper proposes a resource allocation algorithm for calculation based on ant-colony optimization in cloud computing environment. When allocating the computing resources, we should firstly predict the potential computing quality on each available node. Then, according to the feature of the cloud-computing environment, we have to analyze the effects for allocation influenced by factors such as the bandwidth, line quality, response time, and so on. With the application of Ant Colony Optimization, we can obtain a set of optimal computing resources. Through simulation analysis and comparison in Gridsim environment, this algorithm, meeting the computation requirements in a cloud-computing environment, has advantages of being of a shorter response time and a better quality than some other grid allocation algorithms. In this condition, this algorithm is much more suitable in cloud environments.

This paper considers the couple-group consensus problem for multi-agent networks with fixed and directed communication topology, where all agents are described by discrete-time second-order dynamics. Consensus protocol is designed such that some agents in a network reach a consistent value, while other agents reach another consistent value. The convergence of the system matrix is discussed based on the tools from matrix theory. An algebraic condition is established to guarantee couple-group consensus. Moreover, for a given communication topology, a theorem is derived on how to select proper control parameters and sampling period for couple-group consensus to be reached. Finally, simulation examples are presented to validate the effectiveness of the theoretical results. © 2013 The Franklin Institute.

The effectiveness and efficiency of e-government (e-gov) services (EGS) are critical issues that have yet to be fully discussed. Inspired by successful practices in the areas of SERVQUAL, capability-based theories, and IT-related capability management, the efficient delivery of EGS should derive from the high capabilities of a government to provide such services. This article aims to develop a conceptual framework to assess and empirically examine EGSC using data from local governments in Mainland China. The fitness test and the case study prove that the conceptual framework was suitable in analyzing China's EGSC. In particular, the EGSC can be examined from 3 dimensions/layers: content service capability, service delivery capability, and on-demand capability. The results of the structural analysis illustrate the practical management applications of EGSC, which can facilitate the improvement of EGS. © 2013 ASIS&T.

The problem of group consensus is investigated in this paper, where all agents possess double-integrator dynamics. Two different kinds of consensus protocols are proposed for networks with fixed communication topology to reach group consensus for the agents' positions and velocities. Convergence analysis is discussed, and necessary and/or sufficient conditions are presented for multiagent systems to achieve group consensus. The first protocol leads to dynamic consensus where positions of all agents reach time-varying consensus values. By applying the second protocol, both the agents' positions and their velocities reach constant consensus values. That is, static consensus is achieved. Simulation examples are given to show the effectiveness of the theoretical results.Copyright © 2012 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.

In this paper, we consider the consensus problem for heterogeneous multi-agent systems composed of some first-order and some second-order dynamic agents in directed communication graphs. Consensus protocols are proposed for the second- and first-order dynamic agents, respectively. Under certain assumptions on the control parameters, for fixed communication topologies, necessary and sufficient conditions for consensus are given, and the consensus values of all agents are established. For switching topologies, sufficient conditions are given for all agents to reach consensus. Finally, simulation examples are presented to demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed methods.
