Evaluating serial ZigBee devices for application in wireless networked control systems
Networked control systems (NCS) are distributed control system where the sensors, actuators and controllers are physically separated and connected through communication networks. NCS represent the evolution of networked ...
A practical approach for biometric authentication based on smartcards
Cryptographic systems are safe. However, the management of cryptographic keys of these systems is a tough task. They are usually protected by the use of password-based authentication mechanisms, which is a weak link on ...
Performance evaluation of the fuzzy ARTMAP for network intrusion detection
Recently, considerable research work have been conducted towards finding fast and accurate pattern classifiers for training Intrusion Detection Systems (IDSs). This paper proposes using the so called Fuzzy ARTMAT classifier ...
Using serial bluetooth converters as a sensor link in networked control systems
Networked control systems (NCS) are distributed control system in which sensors, actuators and controllers are physically separated and connected through communication networks. NCS represent the evolution of networked ...
Scheduler simulation using iSPD, an iconic-based computer grid simulator
Increased accessibility to high-performance computing resources has created a demand for user support through performance evaluation tools like the iSPD (iconic Simulator for Parallel and Distributed systems), a simulator ...
Performance implications of dynamic memory allocators on transactional memory systems
Although dynamic memory management accounts for a significant part of the execution time on many modern software systems, its impact on the performance of transactional memory systems has been mostly overlooked. In order ...
The characteristics of a test liquid formulation for use in evaluating the performance of handling and metering systems
(British Crop Protection Council, 1998-01-01)
Injection metering systems are an important option for the development of pesticide application equipment, with advantages relating to minimising the need for disposal of unused pesticide, improving the ease of cleaning ...
Analysis of consumption data to detect commercial losses using performance evaluation methods in a smart grid
Electric power networks, namely distribution networks, have been suffering several changes during the last years due to changes in the power systems operation, towards the implementation of smart grids. Several approaches ...
The role of bibliometric research on the performance evaluation of research institutions: the Embrapa case.
