Preface

  • The indoor–outdoor (IO) status of mobile devices is fundamental information for various smart city applications. In this paper, we present NeuralIO, a neural-network-based method for dealing wi ... Read More

  • In this paper, we discuss the optimal arrangement of wearable devices based on the lifespan of animals, which are utilized as device transporter materials, for the long-term monitoring of the wil ... Read More

  • In recent years, on-body device position recognition has attracted a lot of attention from the ubiquitous computing community with a view to providing reliable services to users. The existing wor ... Read More

  • In a previous study, we developed a novel fingerprint optical sensor that can detect fingerprint patterns within the skin of a finger without considering the effect of surface condition, and the ... Read More

  • Energy saving has been explored over the past decades. Since most of the energy consumption in a building is from the air condition system, the air conditioners in a building are often controlled ... Read More

  • Smartphone-based disaster communication systems have been the topic of many recent studies. However, existing systems unrealistically assume that prior to a disaster, the required applications ha ... Read More

  • In sensor networks, sensor localization is one of the mandatory functions for physical sensing. In this paper, we propose a sensor localization system that utilizes wireless local area network (W ... Read More

  • In this research project, we aim to build a long-range (LoRa)-based Internet of Things (IoT) secure localization system and application based on multisensor fusion calculation. The LoRa technolog ... Read More
