Abstract

Universal mobile networks require enhanced capability and appropriate quality of service (QoS) and experience (QoE). To achieve this, Long Term Evolution (LTE) system operators have intensively deployed femtocells (HeNBs) along with macrocells (eNBs) to offer user equipment (UE) with optimal capacity coverage and best quality of service. To achieve the requirement of QoS in the handover stage among macrocells and femtocells we need a seamless cell selection mechanism. Cell selection requirements are considered a difficult task in femtocell-based networks and effective cell selection procedures are essential to reduce the ping-pong phenomenon and to minimize needless handovers. In this study, we propose a seamless cell selection scheme for macrocell-femtocell LTE systems, based on the Q-learning environment. A novel cell selection mechanism is proposed for high-density femtocell network topologies to evaluate the target base station in the handover stage. We used the LTE-Sim simulator to implement and evaluate the cell selection procedures. The simulation results were encouraging: a decrease in the control signaling rate and packet loss ratio were observed and at the same time the system throughput was increased.

Abstract

The brain-computer interface is considered one of the main tools for implementing and designing smart medical software. The analysis of brain signal data, called EEG, is one of the main tasks of smart medical diagnostic systems. While EEG signals have many components, one of the most important brain activities pursued is the P300 component. Detection of this component can help detect abnormalities and visualize the movement of organs of the body. In this research, a new method for processing EEG signals is proposed with the aim of detecting the P300 component. Major features were extracted from the BCI Competition IV EEG data set in a number of steps, i.e. normalization with the purpose of noise reduction using a median filter, feature extraction using a recurrent neural network, and classification using Twin Support Vector Machine. Then, a series of evaluation criteria were used to validate the proposed approach and compare it with similar methods. The results showed that the proposed approach has high accuracy.

Abstract

It is very important for tsunami early warning systems to provide inundation predictions within a short period of time. Inundation is one of the factors that directly cause destruction and damage from tsunamis. This research proposes a tsunami impact prediction system based on inundation data analysis. The inundation data used in this analysis were obtained from the tsunami modeling called TsunAWI. The inundation data analysis refers to the coastal forecast zones for each city/regency that are currently used in the Indonesia Tsunami Early Warning System (InaTEWS). The data analysis process comprises data collection, data transformation, data analysis (through GIS analysis, predictive analysis, and simple statistical analysis), and data integration, ultimately producing a pre-calculated inundation database for inundation prediction and tsunami impact prediction. As the outcome, the tsunami impact prediction system provides estimations of the flow depth and inundation distance for each city/regency incorporated into generated tsunami warning bulletins and impact predictions based on the Integrated Tsunami Intensity Scale (ITIS-2012). In addition, the system provides automatic sea level anomaly detection from tide gauge sensors by applying a tsunami detection algorithm. Finally, the contribution of this research is expected to bring enhancements to the tsunami warning products of InaTEWS.

Abstract

In the past few decades, the large amount of available data has become a major challenge in data mining and machine learning. Feature selection is a significant preprocessing step for selecting the most informative features by removing irrelevant and redundant features, especially for large datasets. These selected features play an important role in information searching and enhancing the performance of machine learning models. In this research, we propose a new technique called One-level Forward Multi-level Backward Selection (OFMB). The proposed algorithm consists of two phases. The first phase aims to create preliminarily selected subsets. The second phase provides an improvement on the previous result by an adaptive multi-level backward searching technique. Hence, the idea is to apply an improvement step during the feature addition and an adaptive search method on the backtracking step. We have tested our algorithm on twelve standard UCI datasets based on k-nearest neighbor and naive Bayes classifiers. Their accuracy was then compared with some popular methods. OFMB showed better results than the other sequential forward searching techniques for most of the tested datasets.

Abstract

The aim of this research was to reveal and explore the characteristics of Balinese dance maestros by analyzing silhouette sequence patterns of Balinese dance movements. A method and complete scheme for the extraction and construction of silhouette features of Balinese dance movements are proposed to enable performing quantitative analysis of Balinese dance movement patterns. Two different feature extraction methods, namely the Histogram of Gradient (HoG) feature and the Scale Invariant Features Transform (SIFT) descriptor, were used to build the final feature, called the Bag of Visual Movement (BoVM) feature. This research also makes a technical contribution with the proposal of quantifying measures to analyze the movement patterns of Balinese dances and to create the profile and characteristics of dance maestros/creators. Eight Balinese dances from three different Balinese dance maestros were analyzed in this work. Based on the experimental results, the proposed method was able to visually detect and extract patterns from silhouette sequences of Balinese dance movements. Quantitatively, the pattern measures for profiling of Balinese dances and maestros revealed a number of significant characteristics of different dances and different maestros.

Abstract

This paper proposes an initial scheme towards the development of an automatic word indexation system for Balinese lontar (palm leaf manuscript) collections. The word indexation system scheme consists of a sub module for patch image extraction of text areas in lontars and a sub module for word image transliteration. This is the first word indexation system for lontar collections to be proposed. To detect parts of a lontar image that contain text, a Gabor filter is used to provide initial information about the presence of text texture in the image. An adaptive sliding patch algorithm for the extraction of patch images in lontars is also proposed. The word image transliteration sub module was built using the long short-term memory (LSTM) model. The results showed that the image patch extraction of text areas process succeeded in optimally detecting text areas in lontars and extracting the patch image in a suitable position. The proposed scheme successfully extracted between 20% to 40% of the keywords in lontars and thus can at least provide an initial description for prospective lontar readers of the content contained in a lontar collection or to find in which lontar collection certain keywords can be found.

Abstract

Anomaly detection in the sound from machines is an important task in machine monitoring. An autoencoder architecture based on the reconstruction error using a log-Mel spectrogram feature is a conventional approach for this domain. However, because of the non-stationary nature of some sounds from the target machine, such a conventional approach does not perform well in those circumstances. In this paper, we propose a novel approach regarding the choice of used features and a new auto-encoder architecture. We created the Mixed Feature, which is a mixture of different sound representations, and a new deep learning method called Fully-Connected U-Net, a form of autoencoder architecture. With experiments on the same dataset as the baseline system, using the same architecture for all types of machines, the experimental results showed that our methods outperformed the baseline system in terms of the AUC and pAUC evaluation metrics. The optimized model achieved 83.38% AUC and 64.51% pAUC on average overall machine types on the developed dataset and outperformed the published baseline by 13.43% AUC and 8.13% pAUC.

Abstract

This study investigated structure strategies and exploratory scenarios for a half mode substrate integrated waveguide (HMSIW) antenna. The proposed antenna consists of three Hilbert cells, which are simulated by using CST programming. The antenna was manufactured with the realities of minor imperfections and high incorporation. The proposed structure offers a suitable substrate integrated waveguide (SIW) with about a decrease in size by half. In addition, Hilbert cells were added to realize the triple-band characteristics with good impedance matching, radiation patterns, and radiation performance. The antenna was fabricated on h = 1 mm thick dielectric substrate with dielectric constant (???????? = 4.3). The Hilbert cells were drilled on the top plane of the antenna substrate and fed using a microstrip transmission line. The proposed antenna is small, with a slot side length of approximately half of the guided wavelength. The three developed Hilbert cell HMSIW antenna resonates at 3.25, 5.94 and 6.5 GHz with a bandwidth of 2.97, 2.25 and 2.29% within a return loss of ‑38.77, ‑35.82 -23.35 dB, respectively. The results showed enhancements in antenna gain of 3.56, 4.97 and 6.43 dBi, with a radiation efficiency of -1.253, -0.493 and -0.586 dB, respectively.

Abstract

Power consumption and network lifetime are vital issues in wireless sensor network (WSN) design. This motivated us to find innovative mechanisms that help in reducing energy consumption and prolonging the lifetime of such networks. In this paper, we propose a hexagonal model for WSNs to reduce power consumption when sending data from sensor nodes to cluster heads or the sink. Four models are proposed for cluster head positioning and the results were compared with well-known models such as Power Efficient Gathering In Sensor Information Systems (PEGASIS) and Low-Energy Adaptive Clustering Hierarchy (LEACH). The results showed that the proposed models reduced WSN power consumption and network lifetime.

Abstract

This paper proposes a new term frequency with a Gaussian technique (TF-G) to classify the risk of suicide from Thai clinical notes and to perform sentiment analysis based on Thai customer reviews and English tweets of travelers that use US airline services. This research compared TF-G with term weighting techniques based on Thai text classification methods from previous researches, including the bag-of-words (BoW), term frequency (TF), term frequency-inverse document frequency (TF-IDF), and term frequency-inverse corpus document frequency (TF-ICF) techniques. Suicide risk classification and sentiment analysis were performed with the decision tree (DT), naïve Bayes (NB), support vector machine (SVM), random forest (RF), and multilayer perceptron (MLP) techniques. The experimental results showed that TF-G is appropriate for feature extraction to classify the risk of suicide and to analyze the sentiments of customer reviews and tweets of travelers. The TF-G technique was more accurate than BoW, TF, TF-IDF and TF-ICF for term weighting in Thai suicide risk classification, for term weighting in sentiment analysis of Thai customer reviews for Burger King, Pizza Hut, and Sizzler restaurants, and for the sentiment analysis of English tweets of travelers using US airline services.
