Tracking in WiMAX Networks Using Cell-IDs

There is some skepticism regarding the practical implementation of a tracking system that depends on cell identification (Cell-ID) information. This pessimism is due to the fact that tracking systems are known to require high positioning accuracy, while Cell-ID positioning is known as being "low accuracy" positing technique. However, using the Cell-IDs in a different way (a novel approach) than in current positioning will allow the implementation of a tracking system capable of providing sufficient positioning accuracy for many location-dependent applications.

Tracking in WiMAX Networks depending on SCORE measurements
Bshara, Mussa; Orguner, Umut; Gustafsson, Fredrik; Van Biesen, Leo (2009-03-19)
Tracking in WiMAX networks is gaining a lot of interest; especially after the mobile WiMAX became one of the emerging technologies that promote low-cost deployment and evolving to provide IP-based services of high mobility including providing location-based services (LBS). Therefore, locating users in a cheap way that depend on the available network resources is becoming more and more interesting and an active topic for researchers. In this paper we consider the problem of tracking in WiMAX networks depend...
Homomorphic encryption based on the ring learning with errors (RLWE) problem
Keskinkurt, İrem; Cenk, Murat; Department of Cryptography (2017)
The encryption techniques used to ensure data secrecy have been evolving in compliance with the developments in technology and reforming according to need. Nowadays, the increase in the amount of data that should be stored in encrypted form, has led to the need for encryption schemes that provide both the safety and the efficient usability of data. Homomorphic encryption, which enables the ability to make computations on encrypted data, is seen as one of the solutions that can meet this need. In this thesis...

SurvQ is a video monitoring system appropriate for surveillance applications such as those found in security and law enforcement. It performs real time object property identification and stores all data in a scalable DBMS. Standing queries implemented as database triggers are supported. SurvQ contains novel adaptive machine learning and algorithmic property classification. The application of SurvQ to assist the West Lafayette (IN) police department at identifying suspects in video is described. This paper a...
Color-based object tracking to improve mobile robot navigation
Keskinpala, T; Koku, Ahmet Buğra; Keskinpala, HK (2002-07-18)
Recognition and tracking of certain objects of interest is an important aspect that a robotic system has to have for a variety of reasons. One use of tracking is introduced with behavior-based robotics where certain objects, or object distributions are used as triggers for different behaviors. Landmark based navigation is yet another example. Although it is possible to execute tracking by using different sensors, vision is mostly preferred. In this paper, a color-based object tracking system is introduced.
Object tracking for surveillance applications using thermal and visible band video data fusion
Beyan, Çiğdem; Temizel, Alptekin; Department of Information Systems (2010)
Individual tracking of objects in the video such as people and the luggages they carry is important for surveillance applications as it would enable deduction of higher level information and timely detection of potential threats. However, this is a challenging problem and many studies in the literature track people and the belongings as a single object. In this thesis, we propose using thermal band video data in addition to the visible band video data for tracking people and their belongings separately for ...
