Hybrid Approach for Mobile Couriers Election in Smart-cities

Al-Turjman, Fadi
In this paper we propose a hybrid heuristic approach for public data delivery under ultra-large-scale smart-city settings. In this approach, public transportation vehicles are going into election process to be utilized as Mobile Couriers (MCs) that read public Access Points (APs) data loads and relay it back to a central processing base-station. We also introduce a cost-based fitness function for the MCs election in the smart-city project which forms a real implementation for the Internet of Things (IoT) paradigm. Our cost-based function considers mobile resource limitations in terms count, storage and energy. Extensive simulations are performed and the results confirm the effectiveness of the proposed approach in comparison to other heuristic approaches with identical objectives.


Multi-objective decision making using fuzzy discrete event systems: A mobile robot example
Boutalis, Yiannis; Schmidt, Klaus Verner (2010-09-29)
In this paper, we propose an approach for the multi-objective control of sampled data systems that can be modeled as fuzzy discrete event systems (FDES). In our work, the choice of a fuzzy system representation is justified by the assumption of a controller realization that depends on various potentially imprecise sensor measurements. Our approach consists of three basic steps that are performed in each sampling instant. First, the current fuzzy state of the system is determined by a sensor evaluation. Seco...
CAR Approach for the Internet of Things
Al-Turjman, Fadi; GÜNAY, MELİH (2016-12-01)
In this paper, we propose a novel context-aware routing (CAR) approach that uses the cloud as an extra level of data-request processing to improve the network performance in terms of data delivery. Data delivery in the Internet of Things depends heavily on numerous factors, such as the amount of data, end-to-end in-network delay, and setup time. The CAR approach is significantly improving the current request-response model, especially while the exchanged in-network data amount increases and data are sent fr...
Single and multi agent real-time path search in dynamic and partially observable environments
Ündeğer, Çağatay; Polat, Faruk; Department of Computer Engineering (2007)
In this thesis, we address the problem of real-time path search in partially observable grid worlds, and propose two single agent and one multi-agent search algorithm. The first algorithm, Real-Time Edge Follow (RTEF), is capable of detecting the closed directions around the agent by analyzing the nearby obstacles, thus avoiding dead-ends in order to reach a static target more effectively. We compared RTEF with a well-known algorithm, Real-Time A* (RTA*) proposed by Korf, and observed significant improvemen...
Planning as/and/in Context: Towards a New Analysis of Context in Interactive Planning
Van Assche , Kristof (Middle East Technical University, Faculty of Architecture, 2007-6-01)
In this paper, we propose a revisiting of the concept of context in spatial planning, especially in the analysis of the rapidly growing sector of interactive, collaborative, communicative planning. In interactive planning projects, different stakeholders with different backgrounds, interests, negotiate a plan for an area. Communication, interpretation, and therefore the concept of context, as everything outside the actual communication that influences its meaning, become correspondingly more central to plan...
Semantic information-based alternative plan generation for multiple query optimization
Polat, Faruk; Alhajj, R (Elsevier BV, 2001-09-01)
This paper addresses the impact of semantic information about queries on alternative plan generation (APG) for multiple query optimization (MQO). MQO covers optimizing the execution of a set of queries together where each query in the set to be optimized has several alternative execution plans. A multiple query optimizer selects an alternative plan for each query to obtain an optimal global execution plan. Our approach uses information such as common relations, common possible joins and common conditions to...
