    Writer-independent Offline Recognition of Handwritten Ethiopic Characters2008Inngår i: Proceedings: Eleventh International Conference on Frontiers in Handwriting Recognition, Montréal, Québec - Canada, August 19-21, 2008 / [ed] Ching Y Suen, Montréal: CENPARMI, Concordia University , 2008, s. 652-657Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper presents writer-independent offline handwritten character recognition for Ethiopic script. The recognition is based on the characteristics of primitive strokes that make up characters. The spatial relationships of primitives whose combinations form complex structures of Ethiopic characters are used as a basis for recognition. Although this approach efficiently recognizes properly written characters, the recognition rate drops for characters where the spatial relationships of their primitives could not be drawn. This happens mostly when the connections between primitives are not properly written, which is a common case in handwriting. To complement the recognition, we classify characters based on the characteristics of their primitives, resulting in grouping of characters in a five-dimensional space. Once the type of characters is identified, recognition can be achieved with a minimal set of information from their spatial relationships. A comprehensive database is also developed to standardize the evaluation of research works on offline Ethiopic handwriting recognition systems. Our proposed system is tested is with the database and experimental results are reported.

    Utredning av övertoners effekter på transformatorer2019Independent thesis Basic level (university diploma), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [sv]

    Detta examensarbete är en utredning om hur en av Halmstad Energi och Miljö Nät ABs transformatorer påverkas av övertoner. Utredningen handlar till största del om hur mycket transformatorns nominella effekt måste skrivas ner. Examensarbetet visar teorin kring både vad som är övertoner, övertoners effekter på transformatorer samt beräkningsmodeller för effektnedskrivning. De metoder som används och jämförs för nedskrivning av transformatoreffekt är faktor K, som beskrivs i SS-EN 50464-3 och K-faktor, som beskrivs i ANSI/IEEE C57.100.

    För att på ett verklighetstroget och ingenjörsmässigt sätt beräkna hur de olika standarderna påverkar transformatorn har tre fall testats.  

    • Övertonernas medelinverkan under en månad, utifrån insamlade mätdata.
    • Övertonernas maximala inverkan under en månad, utifrån insamlade mätdata.
    • Övertonernas inverkan om övertonshalterna ökar i framtiden.

    Resultatet av utredningen visar att transformatorns nominella effekt i fallen där mätdata behandlas bör minskas med ca 6–17% för K-faktor-metoden. För faktor K är de siffrorna ca 2,5–7,5%. Dock visar mätdata från samtliga fallen att belastningsgraden på den testade trans-formatorn är långt under den maximala nedskrivna effekten. Om mängden strömövertoner i framtiden skulle öka är en nedskrivning på 30% av maxeffekten inte orimligt.

    Data Offloading in 5G-Enabled Software-Defined Vehicular Networks: A Stackelberg-Game-Based Approach2017Inngår i: IEEE Communications Magazine, ISSN 0163-6804, E-ISSN 1558-1896, Vol. 55, nr 8, s. 100-108Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Data offloading using vehicles is one of the most challenging tasks to perform due to the high mobility of vehicles. There are many solutions available for this purpose, but due to the inefficient management of data along with the control decisions, these solutions are not adequate to provide data offloading by making use of the available networks. Moreover, with the advent of 5G and related technologies, there is a need to cope with high speed and traffic congestion in the existing infrastructure used for data offloading. Hence, to make intelligent decisions for data offloading, an SDN-based scheme is presented in this article. In the proposed scheme, an SDNbased controller is designed that makes decisions for data offloading by using the priority manager and load balancer. Using these two managers in SDN-based controllers, traffic routing is managed efficiently even with an increase in the size of the network. Moreover, a single-leader multi-follower Stackelberg game for network selection is also used for data offloading. The proposed scheme is evaluated with respect to several parameters where its performance was found to be superior in comparison to the existing schemes. © Copyright 2017 IEEE

    Standardization of Bug Validation2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    The usage of the Internet is widely implemented all over the world in a number of concepts. This generates a demand of establishing security as to sustain the integrity of data. In this thesis a service will be presented which can be used to identify various web vulnerabilities in order to regulate these and therefore prevent exploitation. As the world is today the increase of technical implementation provides with a growing amount of security flaws, this affect the organizations which may have to increase their resource financing in an effort to counter these. But what if a tremendous amount of work could be automated and avoid organizations having to spend an enormous amount of finances validating security flaws reported to them? What if these flaws could be validated in a more effective manner? With this tool being establish an individual will no longer require advanced technical knowledge in order to identify whether a web vulnerability is present or not but instead have an automated test perform the procedure for them.

    Bluetoothsäkerhet, neglegerad eller (o)kunskap2019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [sv]

    Under 2017 hittades sårbarheten Blueborne som gjorde att en person kunde ta sig in i mobiltelefoner eller datorer helt obemärkt genom att enheten endast ha igång bluetooth.

    Bluetoothsäkerheten behövs tas på minst lika stort allvar som alla andra enheter som tillexempel wifi eller annan trådlös utrustning som kan äventyra att information hamnar i orätta händer, för skulle felaktig information nå en person med ont uppsåt så skulle konsekvenserna vara förödande för privatpersoner eller för företag.

    Denna uppsats behandlar frågor genom att intervjua personer på företag och genom enkätundersökning, det har påvisats att majoriteten av företag har bristande kunskap eller saknar någonting som kan varna en användare eller administratör vid en attack. Diskussion kring attackers potentiella förödelse mot företag när det kommer kring information och drift och hur det går att skydda sig.

    Quasi periodic vortex structures in two-dimensional flows in an inviscid incompressible fluid2005Inngår i: Russian journal of mathematical physics, ISSN 1061-9208, E-ISSN 1555-6638, Vol. 12, nr 2, s. 121-156Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    We consider a two-dimensional steady motion of an inviscid incompressible fluid described by the equation &UDelta; u(x,y) = F(u(x,y)), where u(x,y) is the streamfunction, &UDelta; is the Laplace operator, and F((.)) an arbitrary function measuring the flow vorticity. Apparently, until now, the only way to treat an equation of the above type with nontrivial function F analytically is to use the algebro-geometric method for integrable equations. In particular, we investigate the Cosh-Laplace equation (ChL) &UDelta; u(x,y) = ± 4cosh(u(x,y)) by means of the special technique of finite-gap integration, which allows us to obtain real solutions of the ChL equation by using a Riemann surface with appropriate symmetry. We study the first nontrivial case corresponding to a Riemann surface of genus g = 3. The hydrodynamical interpretation of finite-gap solutions is meaningful, and we try to understand the fluid processes described by these solutions. To this end, we take a Riemann surface with additional symmetry properties. We present four five-parameter families of exact solutions. These solutions are given in terms of Jacobi elliptic functions, which enables us to directly investigate the relevant properties. We also find explicit formulas for the lines of singularity. It is of interest from the point of view of algebraic geometry that the structure of the theta divisor can be described.

    Selecting variables for neural network committees2006Inngår i: Advances in neural networks - ISNN 2006: third International Symposium on Neural Networks, Chengdu, China, May 28 - June 1, 2006 ; proceedings. I / [ed] Jun Wang, Berlin: Springer Berlin/Heidelberg, 2006, s. 837-842Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of the variable selection is threefold: to reduce model complexity, to promote diversity of committee networks, and to find a trade-off between the accuracy and diversity of the networks. To achieve the goal, the steps of neural network training, aggregation, and elimination of irrelevant input variables are integrated based on the negative correlation learning [1] error function. Experimental tests performed on three real world problems have shown that statistically significant improvements in classification performance can be achieved from neural network committees trained according to the technique proposed.

    Selecting salient features for classification based on neural network committees2004Inngår i: Pattern Recognition Letters, ISSN 0167-8655, E-ISSN 1872-7344, Vol. 25, nr 16, s. 1879-1891Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Aggregating outputs of multiple classifiers into a committee decision is one of the most important techniques for improving classification accuracy. The issue of selecting an optimal subset of relevant features plays also an important role in successful design of a pattern recognition system. In this paper, we present a neural network based approach for identifying salient features for classification in neural network committees. Feature selection is based on two criteria, namely the reaction of the cross-validation data set classification error due to the removal of the individual features and the diversity of neural networks comprising the committee. The algorithm developed removed a large number of features from the original data sets without reducing the classification accuracy of the committees. The accuracy of the committees utilizing the reduced feature sets was higher than those exploiting all the original features.

    The Evidence Theory Based Post-Processing of Colour Images2004Inngår i: Informatica (Vilnius), ISSN 0868-4952, E-ISSN 1822-8844, Vol. 15, nr 3, s. 315-328Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The problem of post-processing of a classified image is addressed from the point of view of the Dempster-Shafer theory of evidence. Each neighbour of a pixel being analyzed is considered as an item of evidence supporting particular hypotheses regarding the class label of that pixel. The strength of support is defined as a function of the degree of uncertainty in class label of the neighbour, and the distance between the neighbour and the pixel being considered. A post-processing window defines the neighbours. Basic belief masses are obtained for each of the neighbours and aggregated according to the rule of orthogonal sum. The final label of the pixel is chosen according to the maximum of the belief function.

    A feature selection technique for generation of classification committees and its application to categorization of laryngeal images2009Inngår i: Pattern Recognition, ISSN 0031-3203, E-ISSN 1873-5142, Vol. 42, nr 5, s. 645-654Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper is concerned with a two phase procedure to select salient features (variables) for classification committees. Both filter and wrapper approaches to feature selection are combined in this work. In the first phase, definitely redundant features are eliminated based on the paired t-test. The test compares the saliency of the candidate and the noise features. In the second phase, the genetic search is employed. The search integrates the steps of training, aggregation of committee members, selection of hyper-parameters, and selection of salient features into the same learning process. A small number of genetic iterations needed to find a solution is the characteristic feature of the genetic search procedure developed. The experimental tests performed on five real-world problems have shown that significant improvements in Classification accuracy can be obtained in a small number of iterations if compared to the case of using all the features available.

    Random forests based monitoring of human larynx using questionnaire data2012Inngår i: Expert systems with applications, ISSN 0957-4174, E-ISSN 1873-6793, Vol. 39, nr 5, s. 5506-5512Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper is concerned with soft computing techniques-based noninvasive monitoring of human larynx using subject’s questionnaire data. By applying random forests (RF), questionnaire data are categorized into a healthy class and several classes of disorders including: cancerous, noncancerous, diffuse, nodular, paralysis, and an overall pathological class. The most important questionnaire statements are determined using RF variable importance evaluations. To explore data represented by variables used by RF, the t-distributed stochastic neighbor embedding (t-SNE) and the multidimensional scaling (MDS) are applied to the RF data proximity matrix. When testing the developed tools on a set of data collected from 109 subjects, the 100% classification accuracy was obtained on unseen data in binary classification into the healthy and pathological classes. The accuracy of 80.7% was achieved when classifying the data into the healthy, cancerous, noncancerous classes. The t-SNE and MDS mapping techniques applied allow obtaining two-dimensional maps of data and facilitate data exploration aimed at identifying subjects belonging to a “risk group”. It is expected that the developed tools will be of great help in preventive health care in laryngology.

    A vision system for object verification and localization based on local features2001Inngår i: Robotics and Autonomous Systems, ISSN 0921-8890, E-ISSN 1872-793X, Vol. 34, nr 2-3, s. 83-92Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    An object verification and localization system should answer the question whether an expected object is present in an image or not, i.e. verification, and if present where it is located. Such a system would be very useful for mobile robots, e.g. for landmark recognition or for the fulfilment of certain tasks. In this paper, we present an object verification and localization system specially adapted to the needs of mobile robots. The object model is based on a collection of local features derived from a small neighbourhood around automatically detected interest points. The learned representation of the object is then matched with the image under consideration. The tests, based on 81 images, showed a very satisfying tolerance to scale changes of up to 50%, to viewpoint variations of 20, to occlusion of up to 80% and to major background changes as well as to local and global illumination changes. The tests also showed that the verification capabilities are very good and that similar objects did not trigger any false verification.

    A Reliable Token-Based MAC Protocol for V2V Communication in Urban VANET2016Inngår i: 2016 IEEE 27TH ANNUAL INTERNATIONAL SYMPOSIUM ON PERSONAL, INDOOR, AND MOBILE RADIO COMMUNICATIONS (PIMRC), Piscataway: IEEE , 2016, s. 1586-1591Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Safety applications developed for vehicular environments require every vehicle to periodically broadcast its status information (beacon) to all other vehicles, thereby avoiding the risk of car accidents in the road. Due to the high requirements on timing and reliability posed by traffic safety applications, the current IEEE 802.11p standard, which uses a random access Medium Access Control (MAC) protocol, faces difficulties to support timely and reliable data dissemination in vehicular environments where no acknowledgement or RTS/CTS (Request-to-Send/Clear-to-Send) mechanisms are adopted. In this paper, we propose the Dynamic Token-Based MAC (DTB-MAC) protocol. It implements a token passing approach on top of a random access MAC protocol to prevent channel contention as much as possible, thereby improving the reliability of safety message transmissions. Our proposed protocol selects one of the neighbouring nodes as the next transmitter; this selection accounts for the need to avoid beacon lifetime expiration. Therefore, it automatically offers retransmission opportunities to allow vehicles to successfully transmit their beacons before the next beacon is generated whenever time and bandwidth are available. Based on simulation experiments, we show that the DTB-MAC protocol can achieve better performance than IEEE 802.11p in terms of channel utilization and beacon delivery ratio for urban scenarios.

    A Reliable Token-Based MAC Protocol for Delay Sensitive Platooning Applications2015Inngår i: 2015 IEEE 82nd Vehicular Technology Conference (VTC2015-Fall), [S.l.]: IEEE, 2015, artikkel-id 7390813Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Platooning is both a challenging and rewarding application. Challenging since strict timing and reliability requirements are imposed by the distributed control system required to operate the platoon. Rewarding since considerable fuel reductions are possible. As platooning takes place in a vehicular ad hoc network, the use of IEEE 802.11p is close to mandatory. However, the 802.11p medium access method suffers from packet collisions and random delays. Most ongoing research suggests using TDMA on top of 802.11p as a potential remedy. However, TDMA requires synchronization and is not very flexible if the beacon frequency needs to be updated, the number of platoon members changes, or if retransmissions for increased reliability are required. We therefore suggest a token-passing medium access method where the next token holder is selected based on beacon data age. This has the advantage of allowing beacons to be re-broadcasted in each beacon interval whenever time and bandwidth are available. We show that our token-based method is able to reduce the data age and considerably increase reliability compared to pure 802.11p. © 2015 IEEE.

    An Efficient MAC Protocol for vehicle platooning in automated highway systems2015Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Lately, all the top truck manufacturers are investing considerable resources in the research and development of platooning systems which would allow vehicles to save fuel and improve safety by travelling in a close-following manner. The platooning system requires frequent and reliable vehicle-to-vehicle communications. As platooning takes place in a vehicular ad hoc network, the use of IEEE 802.11p is close to mandatory. However, the 802.11p medium access method suffers from packet collisions and random delays. Most ongoing research suggests using TDMA on top of 802.11p as a potential remedy.

    Modelling and Simulation of Vehicle Kinematics and Dynamics2017Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 poäng / 30 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    With the rapid growth in the automotive industry, vehicles have become more complex and sophisticated. Vehicle development today, involves integration of both electrical and mechanical systems. Their design and production are typically time and cost critical. To complement and support the process of vehicle development and design, majority of the automotive industry use modelling and simulationfor testing automotive applications, vehicle subsystems or the vehicle behaviour in its entirety.

    For the purpose of traffic simulations, where a large number of vehicles and other elements of the road network are simulated, implementing a highly complex vehicle model would greatly affect the performance of the simulation. The complexity of the vehicle model would entail a higher computation time of the system, making it unsuitable for any real time application. There in lies the trade-off indesigning a model that is both fast and accurate. The majority of the vehicle models that have been designed are either domain specific, highly complex or generalized. Thus, in this thesis, two class specific vehicles’ kinematic models with good accuracy and low computation time are presented.

    Two different modelling paradigms have been adopted to design and test these models. The results, challenges and limitations that pertain to these paradigms are also presented and discussed. The results show the feasibility of the proposed kinematic models.

    Exploiting bacterial properties for multi-hop nanonetworks2014Inngår i: IEEE Communications Magazine, ISSN 0163-6804, E-ISSN 1558-1896, Vol. 52, nr 7, s. 184-191Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Molecular communication is a relatively new communication paradigm for nanomachines where the communication is realized by utilizing existing biological components found in nature. In recent years researchers have proposed using bacteria to realize molecular communication because the bacteria have the ability to swim and migrate between locations, carry DNA contents (i.e. plasmids) that could be utilized for information storage, and interact and transfer plasmids to other bacteria (one of these processes is known as bacterial conjugation). However, current proposals for bacterial nanonetworks have not considered the internal structures of the nanomachines that can facilitate the use of bacteria as an information carrier. This article presents the types and functionalities of nanomachines that can be utilized in bacterial nanonetworks. A particular focus is placed on the bacterial conjugation and its support for multihop communication between nanomachines. Simulations of the communication process have also been evaluated, to analyze the quantity of bits received as well as the delay performances. Wet lab experiments have also been conducted to validate the bacterial conjugation process. The article also discusses potential applications of bacterial nanonetworks for cancer monitoring and therapy. © 2014 IEEE.

    Peer group recognition based on Vehicle operation and behavior: Supervised and unsupervised approach towards peer group recognition and feature space exploration2017Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 poäng / 30 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    Behavior recognition provides an interesting perspective for understandingthe different modes of a system and the influence of eachmode under varying conditions. In most of the systems, prior knowledgeof different expected behavior is available. Whereas, in an automotivedomain, a fleet of vehicle with many external factors influencingeach vehicle and an asynchronous performance of each vehicleon road, creates the complexity on analyzing and predicting the exacttime segments of vehicles in a fleet exhibiting similar behavior. Thisthesis focuses on recognizing time segments of vehicles that exhibitsimilar behavior based on supervised and unsupervised approaches.In supervised approach, classifiers are trained to predict two distinctiveoperations(highway and in-city). In unsupervised approach, featurespace is explored for identification of consistent features and existenceof other operations. An unsupervised approach to recognizepeer cluster groups is combined with supervised classification resultsto achieve lower computational complexity.

    DSLs Should be Online Applications2014Inngår i: Joint International Conference on Engineering Education & International Conference on Information Technology: ICEE/ICIT-2014: June 2 - 6, 2014: Riga, Latvia: Conference proceedings, 2014, s. 314-319Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Domain-Specific Languages (DSLs) play an important role in both practice and education. But developing them is challenging, because a DSL must ultimately satisfy a large and complex set of user/customer requirements to fulfil its intended role, and neither requirements nor users are fully available at all times during the development process. Requirements can be elicited using agile methods but such methods assume the availability of the users. The situation is further complicated when the user base is primarily students and when enhanced learning is a key requirement. In this paper we propose developing DSLs, especially educational ones, as online applications. We analyze how this can help requirement elicitation and learning. Being online brings language development closer to the user, yielding new opportunities to improve and accelerate the language design process. It is also well-matched to agile methods, since web- based analytics provide an abundant source of data that integrates naturally into the development process. As an example, we consider applying the method to Acumen, a DSL designed to support teaching Cyber-Physical Systems.

    Raviolimaskin2016Independent thesis Basic level (university diploma), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [sv]

    Att laga ravioli hemma manuellt är jobbigt och tidskrävande. Det finns olika typer av raviolimaskiner på marknaden vilka hjälper med ravioli fyllningsprocessen, men de har vissa nackdelar. Detta medför att det finns behovet av en raviolimaskin med ett pris och en storlek som man kan skaffa hemma. Målet med detta projekt är att utveckla en raviolimaskin vilken gör applicering av ingredienser på en raviolideg och tillslutning av degen automatiskt. Fyllningsprocessen med användning av maskinen ska bli snabbare jämfört med manuell fyllning. För detta projekt utvecklas en kugghjulspump för applicering av ingrediensen på raviolidegen och en degform vilken tillsluter raviolidegen med användning av två DC-motorer. Som resultat lyckades vi utveckla en raviolimaskin bestående av en kugghjulspump, en degform vilken kan tillsluta en raviolideg och ett användargränssnitt vilken hjälper användaren att använda maskinen på ett enklare sätt.

    Strategic Alignment i en digital era: En studie om hur Robotic Process Automation (RPA) påverkar relationen mellan IT-avdelningen och verksamheten i en organisation2019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [sv]

    Idag tar allt fler verksamheter egna initiativ till att driva en lättare typ av teknik för att på ett snabbare och effektivare sätt kunna uppfylla sina behov. Ett populärt exempel på en sådan teknologi är Robotic Process Automation (RPA) som används i verksamheter för att automatisera processer. Det som skiljer RPA från mer traditionella tekniker är att robotiseringsmjukvaran interagerar med användargränssnittet på samma sätt som en människa gör. Detta innebär att RPA inte är beroende av programmeringskunskaper och därmed kan hanteras av verksamheten själva, utanför IT-avdelningar. Detta utmanar strategic alignment som haft stor betydelse för hur organisationer bygger ett strategiskt sätt att arbeta med IT i verksamheten för att stödja affärsprocesser. Denna studie ämnar därför att undersöka hur relationen mellan IT-avdelningen och verksamheten påverkas genom att RPA införs i en organisation. Studien har utgått från en kvalitativ forskningsansats på tre olika organisationer. Resultatet visade att relationen mellan IT-avdelningen och verksamheten påverkas genom organisatoriska förändringar som sker när RPA införs i verksamheten där en ny avdelning uppkommer, RPA-avdelningen. Resultatet visade att det inte finns en tydlig uppdelning mellan IT-avdelningen och verksamheten, vilket gör att organisationer behöver hitta nya sätt att samarbeta och upprätthålla relationer på.

    Performance evaluation of IEEE 802.11p-enabled vehicular video surveillance system2014Inngår i: IEEE Communications Letters, ISSN 1089-7798, E-ISSN 1558-2558, Vol. 18, nr 4, s. 708-711Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Prospective IEEE 802.11p-based vehicular surveillance system, where video from the vehicle on-board camera is transmitted to the management center, is considered. Multi-hop transmission from the vehicle to the nearest roadside unit and then-via other roadside units-to the gateway is addressed. In this letter we assess the feasibility of such system by analyzing the video end-to-end distortion for a target vehicle, located several hops away from the gateway, when it is alone or there are also other vehicles transmitting video. We demonstrate the importance of dynamic adaptation of the video bit rate of each vehicle depending on the number and positions of the participating vehicles. © 2014 IEEE.

    Throughput Analysis in CSMA/CA Networks Using Continuous Time Markov Networks: A Tutorial2014Inngår i: Wireless Networking for Moving Objects / [ed] Ivan Ganchev, Marília Curado, Andreas Kassler, Cham: Springer, 2014, s. 115-133Kapittel i bok, del av antologi (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This book chapter introduces the use of Continuous Time Markov Networks (CTMN) to analytically capture the operation of Carrier Sense Multiple Access with Collision Avoidance (CSMA/CA) networks. It is of tutorial nature, and it aims to be an introduction on this topic, providing a clear and easy-to-follow description. To illustrate how CTMN can be used, we introduce a set of representative and cutting-edge scenarios, such as Vehicular Ad-hoc Networks (VANETs), Power Line Communication networks and multiple overlapping Wireless Local Area Networks (WLANs). For each scenario, we describe the specific CTMN, obtain its stationary distribution and compute the throughput achieved by each node in the network. Taking the per-node throughput as reference, we discuss how the complex interactions between nodes using CSMA/CA have an impact on system performance.

    Extension of Trajectory Planning in Parameterized Spaces to Articulated Vehicles2017Inngår i: Proceedings of the 2017 22nd IEEE International Conference on Emerging Technologies and Factory Automation, Piscataway: Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2017Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The main objective of this research is to study a novel method for safe maneuvering of articulated vehicles in warehouses. The presented method extends the concept of probabilistic planning on manifolds to articulated vehicles, which will be capable of driving, maneuvering and performing obstacle avoidance in any scenario. The proposed technique involves the extension of a parameterized space, developed for the reactive navigation of differential driven vehicles, to include an additional degree of freedom and use a probabilistic planner to calculate kinematically feasible trajectories. As a result, the algorithm is able to successfully generate maneuvers for an articulated truck and to navigate towards specific target points. The approach was validated using three problems representing different driving scenarios, demonstrating the possible utilization of the method in real-case scenarios. The solutions have been further benchmarked on multiple runs to evaluate success rate and to demonstrate the validity of the algorithm.

    Meshfree methods in option pricing2011Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    A meshfree approximation scheme based on the radial basis function methods is presented for the numerical solution of the options pricing model. This thesis deals with the valuation of the European, Barrier, Asian, American options of a single asset and American options of multi assets. The option prices are modeled by the Black-Scholes equation. The θ-method is used to discretize the equation with respect to time. By the next step, the option price is approximated in space with radial basis functions (RBF) with unknown parameters, in particular, we con- sider multiquadric radial basis functions (MQ-RBF). In case of Ameri- can options a penalty method is used, i.e. removing the free boundary is achieved by adding a small and continuous penalty term to the Black- Scholes equation. Finally, a comparison of analytical and finite difference solutions and numerical results from the literature is included.

    Forensic Authorship Analysis of Microblogging Texts Using -Grams and Stylometric Features2020Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    In recent years, messages and text posted on the Internet are used in criminal investigations. Unfortunately, the authorship of many of them remains unknown. In some channels, the problem of establishing authorship may be even harder, since the length of digital texts is limited to a certain number of characters. In this work, we aim at identifying authors of tweet messages, which are limited to 280 characters. We evaluate popular features employed traditionally in authorship attribution which capture properties of the writing style at different levels. We use for our experiments a self-captured database of 40 users, with 120 to 200 tweets per user. Results using this small set are promising, with the different features providing a classification accuracy between 92% and 98.5%. These results are competitive in comparison to existing studies which employ short texts such as tweets or SMS. ©2020 IEEE

    Release Offset Bounds for Response Time Analysis of P-FRP using Exhaustive Enumeration2011Inngår i: 2011 IEEE 10th International Conference on Trust, Security and Privacy in Computing and Communications (TrustCom), Piscataway, N.J.: IEEE Press, 2011, s. 950-957Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Functional*Reactive Programming (FRP) is a declarative approach to modeling and building reactive systems. Priority-based FRP (P-FRP) is a formalism of FRP that guarantees real-time response. Unlike the classical preemptive model1 of real-time systems, preempted tasks in PFRP are aborted and have to restart when higher priority tasks have completed. Due to this abort-restart of nature of preemption, there is no single critical instant of release that leads to Worst-Case Response Time (WCRT) of lower priority P-FRP tasks. At this time, the only method for determining the WCRT is through an exhaustive enumeration of all release offsets of higher priority tasks between the release and deadline of the lower priority task. This makes the computational cost of WCRT dependent on the deadline of a task, and when such deadlines are large the computational costs of this technique make it infeasible even for small task sets. In this paper, we show that the release offsets of higher priority tasks have a lower and upper bound and present techniques to derive these bounds. By enumerating only those release offsets while lie within our derived bounds the number of release scenarios that have to be enumerated is significantly reduced. This leads to lower computational costs and makes determination of the WCRT in P-FRP a practically feasible proposition. © 2011 IEEE.

    The Use of Automotive Radars in Video-Based Overtaking Assistance Applications2013Inngår i: IEEE transactions on intelligent transportation systems (Print), ISSN 1524-9050, E-ISSN 1558-0016, Vol. 14, nr 3, s. 1035-1042, artikkel-id 649464Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Overtaking on rural roads may cause severe accidents when oncoming traffic is detected by a driver too late, or its speed is underestimated. Recently proposed cooperative overtaking assistance systems are based on real-time video transmission, where a video stream captured with a camera installed at the windshield of a vehicle is compressed, broadcast through the wireless channel, and displayed to the drivers of vehicles driving behind. In such a system, it is of ultimate importance to deliver video information about the opposite lane with low end-to-end latency and good visual quality. In this paper, we propose reallocating the wireless channel resources in favor of the part of the captured video frame containing the image of the oncoming vehicle. To achieve this goal, we apply automotive radar for oncoming vehicle detection, and we use the image of this vehicle as a region-of-interest (ROI) for the video rate control. We present the theoretical framework, which describes the basics of such an approach and can serve as a useful guideline for the future practical implementation of the overtaking assistance systems. The benefits of our proposal are demonstrated in relation to the practical scenario of H.264/Advance Video Coding (AVC), IEEE 802.11p/Wireless Access for Vehicular Environments (WAVE) intervehicle communication standards, and currently used automotive radars.

    Real-time video delivery in Vehicle-to-Infrastructure (V2I) scenario enables a variety of multimedia vehicular services. We conduct experiments with Dedicated Short Range Communications (DSRC) transceivers located in the mutual proximity and exchanging Skype video calls traffic. We demonstrate that the lack of coordination between the users both at the application as well as Medium Access Control (MAC) layers results in problems with quality of service provisioning even for the setup without vehicular mobility. © Copyright 2017 IEEE

    Poster: Target Packet Loss Selection for Inter-Packet Loss Protection for Video Streaming Over VANETs2014Inngår i: 2014 IEEE Vehicular Networking Conference (VNC) / [ed] Falko Dressler, Onur Altintas, Suman Banerjee, Björn Scheuermann & David Eckhoff, Piscataway, N.J.: IEEE Press, 2014, s. 197-198Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This work is dedicated to a live video streaming in vehicular networks where the application-based inter-packet forward error correction is used for the packet loss protection. A practical way to apply such a protection at the video encoder side for the unknown channel loss rate is proposed. Experimental results which demonstrate the performance for the proposed approach for a scalable extension of the H.264/AVC standard (H.264/SVC) and for the non-standardized video codec based on three-dimensional discrete wavelet transform (3-D DWT) are provided.

    Power Control in See-Through Overtaking Assistance System2013Inngår i: IEEE Communications Letters, ISSN 1089-7798, E-ISSN 1558-2558, Vol. 17, nr 3, s. 612-615, artikkel-id 6423758Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    In recently proposed cooperative overtaking assistance systems a video stream captured by a windshield-mounted camera in a vehicle is compressed and broadcast to the vehicle driving behind it, where it is displayed to the driver. It has been shown that this system can provide robust operation if video codec channel adaptation is undertaken by exploiting information from the cooperative awareness messages about any forthcoming increases in the multiple access channel load. In this letter we demonstrate the gains achievable in system performance when the video transmitter power control is also used. © 1997-2012 IEEE.

    Robust vehicle-to-infrastructure video transmission for road surveillance applications2015Inngår i: IEEE Transactions on Vehicular Technology, ISSN 0018-9545, E-ISSN 1939-9359, Vol. 64, nr 7, s. 2991-3003Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    IEEE 802.11p vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-infrastructure communication technology is currently an emerging research topic in both industry and academia. Respective spectrum allocation of 10 MHz channels in the 5.9 GHz band for USA and Europe allows considering inter-vehicle transmission of a live video information as a basis, which enables a new class of safety and infotainment automotive applications such as road video surveillance. This paper is first of its kind where such a video transmission system is developed and experimentally validated. We propose a low-complexity unequal packet loss protection and rate control algorithms for a scalable video coding based on the three-dimensional discrete wavelet transform. We show that in comparison with a scalable extension of the H.264/AVC standard the new codec is less sensitive to packet losses, has less computational complexity and provides comparable performance in case of unequal packet loss protection. It is specially designed to cope with severe channel fading typical for dynamic vehicular environments and has a low complexity, making it a feasible solution for real-time automotive surveillance applications. Extensive measurements obtained in realistic city traffic scenarios demonstrate that good visual quality and continuous playback is possible when the moving vehicle is in the radius of 600 meters from the roadside unit. ©2014 IEEE

    Protocol for wireless real-time systems1999Inngår i: Proceedings of the 11th Euromicro Conference on Real-Time Systems, 1999, Los Alamitos, CA: IEEE Computer Society , 1999, s. 168-174, artikkel-id 777463Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    A protocol and a communication mechanism intended for time and safety critical applications using a radio channel for information transport are considered jointly. The protocol is based on a scheme of retransmissions done on demand within a given time window. Each retransmission is coded with a varying number of redundant symbols. The set of blocks used for retransmission is controlled by two quality-of-service parameters: deadline for the transmission and the probability that the correct decoded message will reach the recipient before this deadline. Analysis of a protocol model indicates that it is possible to transmit time critical information in a mobile wireless system with very low error probabilities in an industrial environment.

    Interaction Protocol for Highway Platoon Merge2015Inngår i: 2015 IEEE 18th International Conference on Intelligent Transportation Systems / [ed] Lisa O’Conner, Los Alamitos: IEEE, 2015, s. 1971-1976, artikkel-id 7313411Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    An interaction protocol for cooperative platoon merge on highways is proposed. The interaction protocol facilitates a challenge scenario for the Grand Cooperative Driving Challenge (GCDC) 2016, where two platoons running on separate lanes merge into one platoon due to a roadwork in one of the lanes. Detailed interaction procedures, described with state machines of each vehicle are presented. A communication message set is designed to support platoon controllers to perform safe and efficient manoeuvres. © 2015 IEEE.

    Baseband Processing in 3G UMTS Radio Base Stations2006Rapport (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    This report presents a study of functionality, service dataflows, computation characteristics and processing parameters for baseband processing in radio base stations. The study has been performed with the objective to develop a programming model that is natural and efficient to use for baseband programming and which can be efficiently compiled to parallel computing structures. In order to achieve this objective it is necessary to analyse and understand the logical architecture of the application in order to be able to define processing characteristics and thereby requirements on languages as well as on physical system architectures. Moreover, to be able to test and verify programming and mapping of functions it is necessary to have realistic but still manageable test cases. The study is focused on the third generation partnership project (3GPP) standard specifications for 3G radio base stations. The specifications cover the complete 3G network-architecture and are quite extensive and complex. To make experiments manageable, it is necessary to abstract system functionality that is not directly relevant for the RBS baseband processing. Moreover, the standard specifications only describe the required processing functionality on an abstract logical level. In this report, the functionality of the baseband functions is explained and also described using illustrations of dataflows and abstract mapping of two 3G service cases. The results of the study constitute a comprehensive description of the processing flow and the mapping of user data channels in 3G radio base stations – spanning data and control input from layer 2 to physical channel output from layer 1. Data dependencies between functions are illustrated with figures and it is concluded that these dependencies are of producer/consumer type. It is discussed how different functions can be mapped in MIMD and SIMD fashion with regard to the data dependencies, the data stream lengths and the control operations required to handle bit stream processing on word-length processor architectures.

    Efficient implementation of stream applications on processor arrays2006Licentiatavhandling, med artikler (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis concludes work conducted on exploring the usage of parallel and reconfigurable processor architectures in industrial high-performance embedded systems. This kind of systems has by tradition been built using a mix of digital signal processors and custom made hardware. Digital signal processors provide full functional felxibility, but at the cost of lower performance. Custom made hardware can be optimized for specific functions for high performance, but at the cost of inflexibility and high development costs. A desire is to combine flexibility and performance using commercial hardware, without trading too much of performance for flexibility.

    Parallel and reconfigurable architectures provide a flexible computing space constituting processing elements that are coupled through configurable communication structures. Architectures designed with less complex processing elements render a high degree of utilizable parallelism at the cost of having to use a portion of the pocessing elements for control functions. In the thesis it is shown that it is possible to utilize this kind of architecture to achieve high performance efficiency, despite the fact that a large fraction of PEs are required to implement control-oriented portions in a fairly complex algorithm.

    A major problem is that architectures of this kind expose a very complex programming abstraction for compilers and programmers. The approach taken in this work is a domain-specific stream processing model which provides means to express application-specific dataflows and computations in terms of streams. An extensive application study comprising the baseband processing in radio base stations has been used to define sufficient data types, operators and language construct. Furthermore, to support industrial requirements on portability to different architectures, it must be possible to express parallelism and characteristic computations without exposing of hardware details in the source code.

    To be able to prototype and set up experiments with stream processing languages an experimental programming framework has been developed. A first prototype language with specific primitive types, operators and stream constructs has been implemented in order to elaborate with baseband programming. It is demonstrated how these types and operators can be used to express machine-independent bit field and other fine-grained data parallel computations. Furthermore, the language has been designed with constructs for efficient and flexible programming of reconfiguration of distributed function parameters.

    Models and Methods for Development of DSP Applications on Manycore Processors2009Doktoravhandling, med artikler (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    Advanced digital signal processing systems require specialized high-performance embedded computer architectures. The term high-performance translates to large amounts of data and computations per time unit. The term embedded further implies requirements on physical size and power efficiency. Thus the requirements are of both functional and non-functional nature. This thesis addresses the development of high-performance digital signal processing systems relying on manycore technology. We propose building two-level hierarchical computer architectures for this domain of applications. Further, we outline a tool flow based on methods and analysis techniques for automated, multi-objective mapping of such applications on distributed memory manycore processors. In particular, the focus is put on how to provide a means for tunable strategies for mapping of task graphs on array structured distributed memory manycores, with respect to given application constraints. We argue for code mapping strategies based on predicted execution performance, which can be used in an auto-tuning feedback loop or to guide manual tuning directed by the programmer. Automated parallelization, optimisation and mapping to a manycore processor benefits from the use of a concurrent programming model as the starting point. Such a model allows the programmer to express different types and granularities of parallelism as well as computation characteristics of importance in the addressed class of applications. The programming model should also abstract away machine dependent hardware details. The analytical study of WCDMA baseband processing in radio base stations, presented in this thesis, suggests dataflow models as a good match to the characteristics of the application and as execution model abstracting computations on a manycore. Construction of portable tools further requires a manycore machine model and an intermediate representation. The models are needed in order to decouple algorithms, used to transform and map application software, from hardware. We propose a manycore machine model that captures common hardware resources, as well as resource dependent performance metrics for parallel computation and communication. Further, we have developed a multifunctional intermediate representation, which can be used as source for code generation and for dynamic execution analysis. Finally, we demonstrate how we can dynamically analyse execution using abstract interpretation on the intermediate representation. It is shown that the performance predictions can be used to accurately rank different mappings by best throughput or shortest end-to-end computation latency.
