Title:

Optimized Sleep Apnea Detector using UWB Signals

Authors:

Jesús G. Servín-Aguilar, Jorge A. Pardiñas-Mir and Luis Rizo-Dominguez

Abstract: Sleep apnea is a syndrome defined as the pause of breathing for more than 10 seconds while the patient remains asleep. Diseases such as strokes, coronary heart attacks or diabetes could be associated with an untreated sleep apnea. UWB is an alternative technology to help treat this condition. It is a non-invasive technology, with low power and low radiation. In this article we present a system based on UWB signals to detect sleep apnea. It is shown that the proposed algorithm correctly detects apnea. Once this is done, an experimental optimization is performed to find the parameters that produce the best results.

Title:

A New Trust Architecture for Smart Vehicular Systems

Authors:

Emna Jaidane, Mohamed Hamdi, Taoufik Aguili and Tai H. Kim

Abstract: Modern vehicles are often equipped with event recording capabilities through blackbox systems. These allow the collection of different types of traces that can be used for multiple applications including self driving, post-accident processing and drive monitoring. In this paper, we develop a new trust architecture to enrich the existing blackbox models by adding timestamped optical flows. Our approach provides a tool to collect authentic traces regarding the mobile objects that interfere with the environment of the car, which is complementary to the events considered by the systems available in the litterature.

Title:

Sum-rate Optimal Communication under Different Power Constraints

Authors:

Mohammad L. Alhasnawi and Ronald G. Addie

Abstract: In this paper the problem of optimal allocation of power to different devices and spectrum when communication takes place in the same region, using shared spectrum, is investigated. We assume that there must be constraints on the power, or EMF, used at each device participating in the shared communication. We consider different forms of power/EMF constraint and compare the sum-throughput achieved by all devices, under these different constraints.
