This book covers the full spectrum of transport from land to sea and aircraft, and includes some research from the economic and human sciences. Clean Mobility and Intelligent Transport Systems covers topics including ICT for intelligent public transport systems; ITS and freight transport; steel and the green cars initiative; cooperative collision warning for vehicles; electronic toll collection systems; multi-sensor maritime surveillance; and aeronautical air-ground communications.
In a world with much abundance of wirelessly accessible devices, WSN deployments should capitalize on the resources already available in the region of deployment, and only augment it with the components required to meet new application requirements. However, if the required resources already exist in that region, WSN deployment converges to an assignment and scheduling scheme to accommodate for the new application given the existing resources. Such resources are polled from many fields, including multiple WSNs already in the field, static networks (WiFi, WiMAX, cellular, etc) in addition to municipal, industrial and mobile resources.The architecture, framework and pricing policy, as well as approaches for backward compatibility with existing deployments, are presented in this book.
Mobility Models for Next Generation Wireless Networks: Ad Hoc, Vehicular and Mesh Networks provides the reader with an overview of mobility modelling, encompassing both theoretical and practical aspects related to the challenging mobility modelling task. Provides discussion of the most representative mobility models for major next generation wireless network application scenarios, including WLAN mesh networks, vehicular networks, wireless sensor networks, and opportunistic networks.
Written by eminent scientists and active researchers and using a clear, matter-of-fact style, it covers advanced theories, methods, and applications in a variety of research areas, and explains key concepts in modeling, analysis, and control of chaotic and hyper chaotic systems. Topics include fractional chaotic systems, chaos control, chaos synchronization,memristors, jerk circuits, chaotic systems with hidden attractors, mechanical and biological chaos, and circuit realization of chaotic systems. The book further covers fuzzy logic controllers, evolutionary algorithms, swarm intelligence, and petri nets among other topics.
