  • Tandem Equipment Arranged Architecture with Exhaust Heat Reuse System for Software-Defined Data Center Infrastructure, Yoshiaki Taniguchi, Koji Suganuma, Takaaki Deguchi, Go Hasegawa, Yutaka Nakamura, Norimichi Ukita, Naoki Aizawa, Katsuhiko Shibata, Kazuhiro Matsuda, Morito Matsuoka, IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON CLOUD COMPUTING, IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON CLOUD COMPUTING, 5(2), 182 - 192, Apr. 2017 , Refereed
    Summary:In this paper, we propose a novel energy-efficient architecture for software-defined data center infrastructures. In our proposed data center architecture, we include an exhaust heat reuse system that utilizes high-temperature exhaust heat from servers in conditioning humidity and air temperature of office space near the data center. To obtain high-temperature exhaust heat, equipment such as server racks and air conditioners are deployed in tandem so that the aisles are divided into three types: cold, hot, and super-hot. In this paper, to investigate the fundamental characteristics of our proposed data center architecture, we consider various types of data center models and conduct numerical simulations that use results obtained by experiments at an actual data center. Through simulation, we show that the total power consumption by a data center with our proposed architecture is 27 percent lower than that by data center with a conventional architecture. In addition, it is also shown that the proposed tandem equipment arrangement is suitable for obtaining high-temperature exhaust heat and decreasing the total power consumption significantly under a wider range of conditions than in the conventional equipment arrangement.
  • A Workload Assignment Policy for Reducing Power Consumption in Software-Defined Data Center Infrastructure, Takaaki Deguchi, Yoshiaki Taniguchi, Go Hasegawa, Yutaka Nakamura, Norimichi Ukita, Kazuhiro Matsuda, Morito Matsuoka, IEICE TRANSACTIONS ON COMMUNICATIONS, IEICE TRANSACTIONS ON COMMUNICATIONS, E99B(2), 347 - 355, Feb. 2016 , Refereed
    Summary:In this paper, we propose a workload assignment policy for reducing power consumption by air conditioners in data centers. In the proposed policy, to reduce the air conditioner power consumption by raising the temperature set points of the air conditioners, the temperatures of all server back-planes are equalized by moving workload from the servers with the highest temperatures to the servers with the lowest temperatures. To evaluate the proposed policy, we use a computational fluid dynamics simulator for obtaining airflow and air temperature in data centers, and an air conditioner model based on experimental results from actual data center. Through evaluation, we show that the air conditioners' power consumption is reduced by 10.4% in a conventional data center. In addition, in a tandem data center proposed in our research group, the air conditioners' power consumption is reduced by 53%, and the total power consumption of the whole data center is exhibited to be reduced by 23% by reusing the exhaust heat from the servers.
  • A Simulation Study of Effect of Fish Body Size on Communication Performance in a Fish Farm Monitoring Environment, Yoshiaki Taniguchi, UKSIM-AMSS 10TH EUROPEAN MODELLING SYMPOSIUM ON COMPUTER MODELLING AND SIMULATION (EMS), UKSIM-AMSS 10TH EUROPEAN MODELLING SYMPOSIUM ON COMPUTER MODELLING AND SIMULATION (EMS), 192 - 195, 2016 , Refereed
    Summary:In recent years, sensor network technologies have attracted attentions in the field of the primary industry such as the aquaculture industry. We have proposed a fish farm monitoring system for developing efficient farming of tuna. In our monitoring system, a sensor node is attached at fish and its sensing data are gathered at a sink node. In the monitoring environment, the size of fish is varied between 5 cm and 100 cm depending on the age of fish. Therefore, the communication environment is also varied depending on the age. In this paper, we investigate the effect of fish body size on the performance of communication in our monitoring system. Through simulation evaluations, we show that the size of fish significantly affects to the data gathering performance.
  • A Data Gathering Method Considering Volume Of Transmission Range For Fish Farm Monitoring, Koichi Ishida, Yoshiaki Taniguchi, Nobukazu Iguchi, UKSIM-AMSS 10TH EUROPEAN MODELLING SYMPOSIUM ON COMPUTER MODELLING AND SIMULATION (EMS), UKSIM-AMSS 10TH EUROPEAN MODELLING SYMPOSIUM ON COMPUTER MODELLING AND SIMULATION (EMS), 181 - 185, 2016 , Refereed
    Summary:One of the promising sensor network application is for the primary industry and we have proposed a fish farm monitoring system. In our system, sensor data monitored at a fish-mounted sensor node is transmitted to a sink node by using acoustic communication. Since we assume that a sensor node is attached at an abdominal cavity region of fish, the transmission range of acoustic wave is not omni-directional due to obstruction of fish body. In addition, energy efficient control is highly important in our system since it is difficult to replace battery of sensor node. In this paper, we propose a data gathering method taking into account energy efficiency and directional transmission range. In our method, we use the volume of transmission range to determine the timing of packet transmission. Our method does not require control packets for determining its transmission timing. Through simulation evaluations, we show that the data gathering performance of our proposed method is higher than that of comparative methods.
  • A Study on Pseudo Cooperative Practice in a Cloud-based Hands-on IP Network Practice System, Takaya Karasuno, Kazuhiko Masuga, Yoshiaki Taniguchi, Nobukazu Iguchi, 2016 IEEE 5TH GLOBAL CONFERENCE ON CONSUMER ELECTRONICS, 2016 IEEE 5TH GLOBAL CONFERENCE ON CONSUMER ELECTRONICS, 481 - 482, 2016 , Refereed
    Summary:In network education, there are several benefits for conducting cooperative practice among a variety of learning levels of learners. We have proposed a hands-on IP network practice system by constructing a virtual network on a cloud server. In our past study, we introduced a pseudo cooperative practice function to our system so that cooperative practice with a companion agent can be accomplished even if there is no other learner for constructing a group. In this paper, we extend the pseudo cooperative practice function to deal with a variety of learning levels of learners. In our system, the companion agent changes its role automatically depending on the learner's learning level. Through questionnaire investigation, we show the effectiveness of pseudo cooperative practice.
  • A System for Supporting Migration to Overlay OpenFlow Network using OpenStack, Keita Nomura, Yoshiaki Taniguchi, Nobukazu Iguchi, Kenzi Watanabe, PROCEEDINGS OF 2016 10TH INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON COMPLEX, INTELLIGENT, AND SOFTWARE INTENSIVE SYSTEMS (CISIS), PROCEEDINGS OF 2016 10TH INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON COMPLEX, INTELLIGENT, AND SOFTWARE INTENSIVE SYSTEMS (CISIS), 595 - 598, 2016 , Refereed
    Summary:OpenFlow network technologies has attracted attention along with popularization of cloud environment and server virtualization since it enables flexible network configuration. It is expected that existing networks of many organizations will migrate to OpenFlow networks in the future. Since it takes a huge cost to replace all existing network devices to OpenFlow switches, many organizations consider to employ overlay OpenFlow networks where virtual OpenFlow devices are introduced at endpoint servers. In overlay OpenFlow networks, the cost for migration increases according to the number of servers. In this paper, we propose a system for supporting migration to an overlay OpenFlow network. Our proposed system acquires settings of servers in the existing network endpoints and reflects them to the overlay OpenFlow network. Through experimental evaluations, we confirm the behavior of the configuration acquisition function of our proposed system.

    Summary:In the case of cycling at night, it is helpful for cyclist if information on bad road surface condition is obtained autonomously. In this paper, we propose a system for autonomously monitoring road surface condition by using laser light and camera modules. In our system, the laser light module emits grid laser light, and the camera module captures the image of front road area. When our system detects bad road surface condition by processing obtained images, it alerts to the cyclist. In this paper, we apply template matching for detecting obstacles in the front of bicycle. In addition, we implement the system using off-the-shelf node, Raspberry PI, a laser module and a typical bicycle. Through experimental evaluations, we confirm that the monitoring system can detect obstacles in the front of bicycle.
  • Experimental Evaluation of a WiFi Device in an Undersea Environment, Yoshiaki Taniguchi, 2015 THIRD INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE, MODELLING AND SIMULATION (AIMS 2015), 2015 THIRD INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE, MODELLING AND SIMULATION (AIMS 2015), 408 - 411, 2015 , Refereed
    Summary:In undersea environment, development of low-cost communication module is highly important for dissemination of undersea wireless sensor networks. Some undersea wireless sensor network applications do not require high performance communication capability such as transmission distance. If the terrestrial low-cost communication module can be used in the undersea environment, it is possible to use the module in some undersea wireless sensor networks. In this paper, we evaluate the communication capability of a commercially available WiFi device in an undersea environment. In the experiment, we use a mobile access point as a sender node and an Android tablet as a receiver node. Through evaluations, we show that the transmission distance of WiFi device is around 0.1 m in an undersea environment. In addition, we evaluate a fish farm monitoring system based on WiFi modules through simulations.

    Summary:Education of network security has attracted a lot of attentions due to increasing unauthorized access, lack of engineers who have network security skills, and so on. Although practice using actual computer networks is highly important for network security education, it requires costs to prepare a computer network for practice. We have proposed a network security learning system by constructing a virtual network on one PC so that low-cost, easy and safe practice can be accomplished. In this paper, we introduce an attacker agent that automatically attacks servers in a fixed pattern for supporting practical learning of defense techniques safely on a virtual network.

    Summary:In the case of cycling at a blind road, at night or cycling by elderly people, it is helpful to prevent accidents if information on bad road surface condition, such as break, potholes, obstacles, bumps, is preliminary obtained. In this paper, we consider to use a low-cost ultrasonic distance sensor attached on a bicycle for monitoring the road surface conditions in the front area. We design and implement a road surface condition monitoring system using an off-the-shelf node Arduino, an ultrasonic distance sensor, and a typical bicycle. In the implemented system, to limit the sensing region, the ultrasonic distance sensor is covered by a plastic shield plate. Through experimental evaluations, we show that the monitoring system can detect the 223 cm away obstacle on road in the front area of moving bicycle.

However, recent studies show that BGP routes are often non-optimal in end-to-end performance, due to technological and economic reasons. To obtain improved end-to-end performance, overlay routing, which can change traffic routing in application layer, has gained attention. However, overlay routing often violates BGP routing policies and harms ISPs' interest. In order to take the advantage of overlay to improve the end-to-end performance, while overcoming the disadvantages, we propose a novel interdomain overlay structure, in which overlay nodes are operated by ISPs within an ISP alliance. The traffic between ISPs within the alliance could be routed by overlay routing, and the other traffic would still be routed by BGP. As economic structure plays very important role in interdomain routing, so we propose an effective and fair charging and pricing scheme within the ISP alliance in correspondence with the overlay routing structure. Finally, we give a simple pricing algorithm, with which ISPs can find the optimal prices in the practice. By mathematical analysis and numerical experiments, we show the correctness and convergence of the pricing algorithm.
  • Pedestrian counting with grid-based binary sensors based on Monte Carlo method, Shuto Fujii, Yoshiaki Taniguchi, Go Hasegawa, Morito Matsuoka, SPRINGERPLUS, SPRINGERPLUS, 3, 1 - 10, Jun. 2014 , Refereed
    Summary:In this paper, we propose a method for estimating the number of pedestrians walking in opposite directions, as in cases of a shopping street or a sidewalk in a downtown area. The proposed method utilizes a compound-eye sensor that is constructed by placing two binary sensors for the pedestrians' movement direction and multiple binary sensors for the vertical direction of the pedestrians' movement direction. A number of Monte Carlo simulations about the movement of pedestrians are conducted, and the output history of the compound-eye sensor is obtained in each simulation. The simulation scenario with a small difference of the output history of the compound-eye sensor is selected to estimate the number of pedestrians. Evaluation results show that in the field whose width is 8 [m] the relative error in the proposed method is the smallest by using 2 x 8 binary sensors.
  • Multiple Regression Analysis of IEEE 802.16j Relay Network Throughput, Kohei Higo, Go Hasegawa, Yoshiaki Taniguchi, Hirotaka Nakano, Morito Matsuoka, 2014 16TH INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON ADVANCED COMMUNICATION TECHNOLOGY (ICACT), 2014 16TH INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON ADVANCED COMMUNICATION TECHNOLOGY (ICACT), 437 - 441, 2014 , Refereed
    Summary:In IEEE 802.16j relay networks, time division multiple access (TDMA) is adopted for sharing wireless network resources while avoiding radio wave interference. Time slot assignment determines the degree of spatial reuse of wireless network resources and radio interference strength, which affects network performance. The relay network performance is also influenced by various factors, such as background noise level, path loss exponent, density of relay nodes, and transmission signal strength. In this paper, we present the results of multiple regression analysis of IEEE 802.16j relay network throughput. We first summarize the network environment parameters that affect the throughput of relay networks and conduct extensive simulation experiments with various sets of parameter values. From the simulation results, we investigate the relative effect of parameters on throughput performance by multiple regression analysis. The analysis results show that background noise level and path loss exponent are the key parameters for determining relay network throughput. We also obtain a regression equation to estimate the throughput with enough accuracy.

We show that the latter algorithm is better in terms of the balance between the calculation time and network performance.
  • A Study on Radio Interference Estimation Method for Wireless Relay Network Link Scheduling, Yoshiaki Taniguchi, PROCEEDINGS 2014 4TH INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE WITH APPLICATIONS IN ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY ICAIET 2014, PROCEEDINGS 2014 4TH INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE WITH APPLICATIONS IN ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY ICAIET 2014, 292 - 297, 2014 , Refereed
    Summary:In time division multiple access (TDMA) based wireless networks, graph coloring based link scheduling mechanisms are often considered to assign time slots to links. A graph coloring based link scheduling mechanism requires a radio interference estimation method to make a conflict graph from a wireless network topology, and the protocol method is usually used among radio interference estimation methods. In this paper, we propose a radio interference estimation method for wireless relay networks, where the network topology is a tree. Through simulation experiments, we show that the accuracy of radio interference estimation with our proposed method is improved compared to that with the protocol method.
  • Impact of workload assignment on power consumption in software-defined data center infrastructure, Takaaki Deguchi, Yoshiaki Taniguchi, Go Hasegawa, Yutaka Nakamura, Norimichi Ukita, Kazuhiro Matsuda, Morito Matsuoka, 2014 IEEE 3RD INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON CLOUD NETWORKING (CLOUDNET), 2014 IEEE 3RD INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON CLOUD NETWORKING (CLOUDNET), 420 - 425, 2014 , Refereed
    Summary:We proposed a workload assignment policy for reducing power consumption by air conditioners in data centers. Power consumption was estimated by computational fluid dynamics for both the conventional equipment arrangement and the tandem arrangement newly developed to reuse the exhaust heat from servers. To reduce the air conditioner power consumption by raising the temperature set points of the air conditioners, the temperatures of all server back-planes were equalized by moving workload from the servers with the highest temperatures to the servers with the lowest temperatures. Consequently, the air conditioners' power consumption was reduced by 10.4% in the conventional arrangement. In the tandem arrangement, the air conditioners' power consumption was reduced by 53%, and also the total power consumption of the whole data center was exhibited to be reduced by 23% by reusing the exhaust heat from the servers.
  • Desynchronization-based Weighted Scheduling Adaptive to Traffic Load for Wireless Networks, Yoshiaki Taniguchi, 2014 INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON COMPUTER, COMMUNICATIONS, AND CONTROL TECHNOLOGY (I4CT), 2014 INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON COMPUTER, COMMUNICATIONS, AND CONTROL TECHNOLOGY (I4CT), 130 - 134, 2014 , Refereed
    Summary:Under regular or heavy traffic conditions, contention-free mechanisms such as time division multiple access (TDMA) are considered as under layer mechanisms in wireless networks. In TDMA mechanisms, links are scheduled by assigning different time slots for links that interfere each other. In this paper, we propose a self-organizing link scheduling mechanism for single-hop wireless networks considering traffic load of each wireless link. The proposed mechanism is based on a conventional desynchronization-based TDMA mechanism. Through simulation evaluations, it is shown that our proposed mechanism can schedule links in a self-organizing manner in accordance with traffic load of each link.
  • Tracking Pedestrians across Multiple Microcells Based on Successive Bayesian Estimations, Yoshiaki Taniguchi, Masahiro Sasabe, Takafumi Watanabe, Hirotaka Nakano, SCIENTIFIC WORLD JOURNAL, SCIENTIFIC WORLD JOURNAL, 2014, 1 - 7, 2014 , Refereed
    Summary:We propose a method for tracking multiple pedestrians using a binary sensor network. In our proposed method, sensor nodes are composed of pairs of binary sensors and placed at specific points, referred to as gates, where pedestrians temporarily change their movement characteristics, such as doors, stairs, and elevators, to detect pedestrian arrival and departure events. Tracking pedestrians in each subregion divided by gates, referred to as microcells, is conducted by matching the pedestrian gate arrival and gate departure events using a Bayesian estimation-based method. To improve accuracy of pedestrian tracking, estimated pedestrian velocity and its reliability in a microcell are used for trajectory estimation in the succeeding microcell. Through simulation experiments, we show that the accuracy of pedestrian tracking using our proposed method is improved by up to 35% compared to the conventional method.
  • A Routing Strategy for Multihomed ISP to Mitigate the Impact of Overlay Traffic, Xun Shao, Go Hasegawa, Yoshiaki Taniguchi, Hirotaka Nakano, IEICE TRANSACTIONS ON INFORMATION AND SYSTEMS, IEICE TRANSACTIONS ON INFORMATION AND SYSTEMS, E96D(2), 193 - 201, Feb. 2013 , Refereed
    Summary:Multihoming is widely used by Internet service providers (ISPs) to obtain improved performance and reliability when connecting to the Internet. Recently, the use of overlay routing for network application traffic is rapidly increasing. As a source of both routing oscillation and cost increases, overlay routing is known to bring challenges to ISPs. In this paper, we study the interaction between overlay routing and a multihomed ISP's routing strategy with a Nash game model, and propose a routing strategy for the multihomed ISP to alleviate the negative impact of overlay traffic. We prove that with the proposed routing strategy, the network routing game can always converge to a stable state, and the ISP can reduce costs to a relatively low level. From numerical simulations, we show the efficiency and convergence resulting from the proposed routing strategy. We also discuss the conditions under which the multihomed ISP can realize minimum cost by the proposed strategy.
  • Bayesian Estimation-Based Pedestrian Tracking in Microcells, Yoshiaki Taniguchi, Masahiro Sasabe, Satoshi Aihara, Hirotaka Nakano, SCIENTIFIC WORLD JOURNAL, SCIENTIFIC WORLD JOURNAL, 2013, 1 - 8, 2013 , Refereed
    Summary:We consider a pedestrian tracking system where sensor nodes are placed only at specific points so that the monitoring region is divided into multiple smaller regions referred to as microcells. In the proposed pedestrian tracking system, sensor nodes composed of pairs of binary sensors can detect pedestrian arrival and departure events. In this paper, we focus on pedestrian tracking in microcells. First, we investigate actual pedestrian trajectories in a microcell on the basis of observations using video sequences, after which we prepare a pedestrian mobility model. Next, we propose a method for pedestrian tracking in microcells based on the developed pedestrian mobility model. In the proposed method, we extend the Bayesian estimation to account for time-series information to estimate the correspondence between pedestrian arrival and departure events. Through simulations, we show that the tracking success ratio of the proposed method is increased by 35.8% compared to a combinatorial optimization-based tracking method.
  • Effect of radio interference models on the performance of time slot assignment algorithms in IEEE 802.16j relay networks, Ryosuke Mine, Go Hasegawa, Yoshiaki Taniguchi, Hirotaka Nakano, 2013 IEEE 27TH INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON ADVANCED INFORMATION NETWORKING AND APPLICATIONS WORKSHOPS (WAINA), 2013 IEEE 27TH INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON ADVANCED INFORMATION NETWORKING AND APPLICATIONS WORKSHOPS (WAINA), 107 - 113, 2013 , Refereed
    Summary:Time slot assignment algorithms in IEEE 802.16j multi-hop relay networks often assume simple radio interference models based on the distance or the number of hops between nodes for simplicity. However, by using more detailed models that consider the signal to interference plus noise ratio, we expect to obtain more effective time slot assignment which gives higher network performance. In this paper, we evaluate the performance of time slot assignment algorithms based on various radio interference models by considering differences in the radio propagation environment and the use of adaptive modulation and coding. Through performance evaluations, we clarify the effect of the parameter settings in the radio interference models on the network performance. We also demonstrate that by carefully choosing the parameters in the simple models, we can obtain almost the same network performance as from the detailed models.
  • Time Slot Assignment Algorithms to Upstream Links for Decreasing Transmission Latency in IEEE 802.16j Networks, Go Hasegawa, Shinpei Tanaka, Yoshiaki Taniguchi, Hirotaka Nakano, IEICE TRANSACTIONS ON COMMUNICATIONS, IEICE TRANSACTIONS ON COMMUNICATIONS, E95B(5), 1793 - 1801, May 2012 , Refereed
    Summary:In this paper, the authors focus on upstream transmission in TDMA-based IEEE 802.16j and propose two time slot assignment algorithms to decrease end-to-end transmission latency. One of the proposed algorithms assigns time slots considering the hop count from a gateway node, and the other takes the path from the relay node to the gateway node into account. In addition, a restriction in assigning time slots is introduced to reduce the delay at each relay node. The algorithms with the restriction assign later time slots considering the time slot order of links connecting a relay node. The performance of the proposed algorithms is evaluated through simulation experiments from the viewpoints of frame size and end-to-end transmission latency, and it is confirmed that the proposed algorithms achieve small transmission latency regardless of packet generation rate in the network, and decrease the transmission latency by up to 70% compared with the existing algorithm.
  • Monte Carlo-based Bi-directional Pedestrian Counting with Compound-Eye Sensor, Shuto Fujii, Yoshiaki Taniguchi, Go Hasegawa, Hirotaka Nakano, 2012 INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON COMPUTER SYSTEMS AND INDUSTRIAL INFORMATICS (ICCSII), 2012 INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON COMPUTER SYSTEMS AND INDUSTRIAL INFORMATICS (ICCSII), 1 - 6, 2012 , Refereed
    Summary:In this paper, we propose a method for estimating the number of pedestrians walking in opposite directions, as in the case of a corridor. The proposed method utilizes a ceiling-mounted compound-eye sensor composed of two binary sensors with partially overlapping sensing regions. The output of the compound-eye sensor is sent to a monitoring server, where a number of Monte Carlo simulations are conducted. The simulation scenario with the smallest difference from the output history of the compound-eye sensor is selected as an estimate of the number of pedestrians. Simulations show that in crowded situations the relative error in the proposed method decreases by up to 45% compared to an existing method.
  • Parameter Tuning of the Protocol Interference Model Using SINR for Time Slot Assignment in Wireless Mesh Networks, Gyeongyeon Kang, Yoshiaki Taniguchi, Go Hasegawa, Hirotaka Nakano, IEICE TRANSACTIONS ON INFORMATION AND SYSTEMS, IEICE TRANSACTIONS ON INFORMATION AND SYSTEMS, E94D(11), 2191 - 2200, Nov. 2011 , Refereed
    Summary:In time division multiple access (TDMA)-based wireless mesh networks, interference relationships should be considered when time slots are assigned to links. In graph theory-based time slot assignment algorithms, the protocol interference model is widely used to determine radio interference information, although it is an inaccurate model of actual radio interference. On the other hand, the signal-to-interference-plus-noise-ratio model (SINR model) gives more accurate interference relationships but is difficult to apply to time slot assignment algorithms since the radio interference information cannot be determined before time slot assignment. In this paper, we investigate the effect of the parameters of the protocol interference model on the accuracy of the interference relationships determined using this model. Specifically, after assigning time slots to links based on the protocol interference model with various interference ratios, which is the major parameter of the protocol interference model, we compare the interference relationship among links in the protocol interference and SINR models. Through simulation experiments, we show that accuracy of the protocol interference model is improved by up to 15% by adjusting the interference ratios of the protocol interference model.
  • SHOT: Scenario-Type Hypothesis Object Tracking with Indoor Sensor Networks, Masakazu Murata, Yoshiaki Taniguchi, Go Hasegawa, Hirotaka Nakano, IEICE TRANSACTIONS ON INFORMATION AND SYSTEMS, IEICE TRANSACTIONS ON INFORMATION AND SYSTEMS, E94D(5), 1035 - 1044, May 2011 , Refereed
    Summary:In the present paper, we propose an object tracking method called scenario-type hypothesis object tracking. In the proposed method, an indoor monitoring region is divided into multiple closed micro-cells using sensor nodes that can detect objects and their moving directions. Sensor information is accumulated in a tracking server through wireless multihop networks, and object tracking is performed at the tracking server. In order to estimate the trajectory of objects from sensor information, we introduce a novel concept of the virtual world, which consists of virtual micro-cells and virtual objects. Virtual objects are generated, transferred, and deleted in virtual micro-cells according to sensor information. In order to handle specific movements of objects in micro-cells, such as slowdown of passing objects in a narrow passageway, we also consider the generation of virtual objects according to interactions among virtual objects. In addition, virtual objects are generated when the tracking server estimates loss of sensor information in order to decrease the number of object tracking failures. Through simulations, we confirm that the ratio of successful tracking is improved by up to 29% by considering interactions among virtual objects. Furthermore, the tracking performance is improved up to 6% by considering loss of sensor information.
  • A uniform airdrop deployment method for large-scale wireless sensor networks, Yoshiaki Taniguchi, Tomoya Kitani, Kenji Leibnitz, INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF SENSOR NETWORKS, INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF SENSOR NETWORKS, 9(3-4), 182 - 191, 2011 , Refereed
    Summary:The performance of wireless sensor networks in terms of coverage, connectivity, lifetime and robustness is greatly influenced by the initial physical placement of the sensor nodes. In this paper we propose a novel deployment method for sensor nodes, when a large number of nodes is distributed from the air in a monitoring region that is inaccessible from the ground. In our deployment method, each sensor node is equipped with a parachute and a device to switch between its two falling behaviours (gliding and falling) in the air. After being dropped from midair, sensor nodes stochastically coordinate their falling behaviour in order to distribute themselves uniformly in the monitoring region. In addition, each sensor node exchanges messages with neighbouring nodes while being airborne and it changes its falling behaviour according to the density of the neighbouring nodes in order to reduce non-uniform areas. Through simulation evaluations, we confirm that our proposal can achieve a high uniformity in the placement of the nodes compared to a traditional airdrop method.
  • Extending the Protocol Interference Model Considering SINR for Wireless Mesh Networks, Gyeongyeon Kang, Yoshiaki Taniguchi, Go Hasegawa, Hirotaka Nakano, PROCEEDINGS OF THE SEVENTH ADVANCED INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON TELECOMMUNICATIONS (AICT 2011), PROCEEDINGS OF THE SEVENTH ADVANCED INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON TELECOMMUNICATIONS (AICT 2011), 26 - 31, 2011 , Refereed
    Summary:Radio interference should be taken into account to assign time slots to links in time division multiple access (TDMA)-based wireless mesh networks. In many graph theory-based time slot assignment algorithms, the protocol interference model is widely used to obtain radio interference information, although this model is considered to be inaccurate when compared with actual radio interference. On the other hand, the signal-to-interference-plus-noise-ratio model (SINR model) is a well-known and accurate model of radio interference. However, the SINR model requires time slot information to obtain radio interference relationship, and thus it is difficult to apply the SINR model to graph theory-based time slot assignment algorithms. In this paper, we extend the protocol interference model to represent radio interference more accurately for wireless mesh networks. To do this, we adjust the interference ratio parameter of the protocol interference model by considering SINR. We propose three methods for adjusting this parameter. Through simulation, it is shown that higher accuracy of the protocol interference model can be achieved by adjusting the interference ratio parameter for each node.

    Summary:In IEEE 802.16j wireless multihop networks, transmission latency from relay nodes to a gateway node is one of the important performance metrics. The transmission latency is mainly affected by a scheduling delay at every relay node, which is determined by algorithms for assigning time slots to wireless links between relay nodes. In this paper, we propose 2 kinds of time slot assignment algorithms for upstream wireless links in IEEE 802.16j multihop networks. One of the proposed algorithms assigns time slots considering the hop count from a gateway node, and the other takes the path from the relay node to the gateway node into account. We evaluated the performance of the proposed algorithms through simulation experiments and confirmed that our algorithms can decrease the upstream latency by up to 15% compared with the existing method, without increasing the average transmission latency of the entire network.

    Summary:By applying a proxy mechanism widely used in WWW systems to video streaming systems, low-delay and high-quality video distribution can be accomplished without imposing extra load on the system. The video streaming system proposed in this paper consists of a video server and multiple proxy servers. In our mechanism, proxies communicate with each other and retrieve missing video data from an appropriate server by taking into account transfer delay and offerable quality. In addition, the quality of cached video data is adapted appropriately at a proxy to cope with the client-to-client heterogeneity in terms of the available bandwidth, end-system performance, and user preferences on the perceived video quality. Through simulation experiments, it is shown that our proposed mechanism can provide users with low-delay and high-quality video streaming services. Furthermore, to verify our mechanism, we implement a real system for MPEG-4 video streaming services and show that our proxy caching system can provide users with a continuous video distribution under dynamically changing network conditions. © 2008 Academy Publisher.

    Summary:In this paper, we propose, design, implement, and evaluate a proxy caching system for MPEG-4 video streaming services for heterogeneous users. In our system, a video stream is divided into blocks for efficient use of the cache buffer and the bandwidth. A proxy retrieves a block from a server, deposits it in its local cache buffer, and provides a requesting client with the block in time. It maintains the cache with limited capacity by replacing unnecessary, cached blocks with a newly retrieved one. It also prefetches video blocks that are expected to be required in the near future. In addition, the proxy server adjusts the quality of block appropriately, because clients are heterogeneous, in terms of the available bandwidth, end-system performance, and so on. Through evaluations, we proved that our proxy caching system could provide users with a continuous and high-quality video streaming service in a heterogeneous environment.

    Summary:The proxy mechanism widely used in WWW systems offers low-delay data delivery by means of "proxy server." By applying proxy mechanisms to video streaming system, we expect that high-quality and low-delay video distribution can be accomplished without introducing extra load on the system, in addition, it is effective to adapt the quality of cached video data appropriately in the proxy if user requests are diverse due to heterogeneity in terms of the available bandwidth, end-system performance, and user's preferences on the perceived video quality. In this paper, we propose proxy caching mechanisms to accomplish high-quality and low-delay video streaming services. In our proposed system, a video stream is divided into blocks for efficient use of cache buffer. A proxy cache server is assumed to be able to adjust the quality of cached or retrieved video blocks to requests through video filters. We evaluate our proposed mechanisms in terms of the required buffer size, the play-out delay and the video quality through simulation experiments. Furthermore, to verify the practicality of our mechanisms, we implement our proposed mechanisms on a real system and conducted experiments. Through evaluations from several performance aspects, it is shown that our proposed mechanisms can provide users with a low-latency and high-quality video streaming service in a heterogeneous environment.

    Summary:In this paper, we propose a method for estimating the number of pedestrians walking in opposite directions, as in the case of a corridor. The proposed method utilizes a ceiling-mounted compound-eye sensor composed of two binary sensors with partially overlapping sensing regions. The output of the compound-eye sensor is sent to a monitoring server, where a number of Monte Carlo simulations are conducted. The simulation scenario with the smallest difference from the output history of the compound-eye sensor is selected as an estimate of the number of pedestrians. Simulations show that in crowded situations the relative error in the proposed method decreases by up to 45% compared to an existing method.

    Summary:In this paper, we propose a distributed and self-organizing communication mechanism for a wireless sensor network where a large number of sensor nodes are deployed. To accomplish periodic communication without any centralized controls, we adopt traveling wave phenomena of a pulse-coupled oscillator model by regarding sensor nodes as oscillators and emission of radio signals as firing. We considered conditions of a phase-response curve to attain wave-formed message propagation. Through simulation experiments, we confirmed that our mechanism can gather or distribute information effectively in accordance with application's requirements.

    Summary:The proxy mechanism widely used in WWW systems offers low-delay and scalable delivery of data by means of a "proxy server". By applying proxy mechanism to video streaming systems, high-quality and low-delay video destribution can be accomplished without imposing extra load on the system. We have proposed proxy caching mechanisms to accomplish the high-quality and highly-interactive video streaming services. In our proposed mechanisms, proxies communicate with each other, retrieve a missing video data from an appropriate server by taking into account transfer delay and offerable quality. In addition, the quality of cached video data can be adapted appropriately in the proxy to cope with the client-to-client heterogeneity, in terms of the available bandwidth, end-system performance, and user preferences on the perceived video quality. In this paper, to verify the practicality of our mechanisms, we implemented them on a real system for MPEG-4 video streaming services, and conducted experiments. Through evaluations, it was shown that our proxy caching system is effective in providing clients with a continuous and high-quality video streaming services.

    Summary:The proxy mechanism widely used in WWW systems offers low-delay and scalable delivery of data by means of a "proxy server". By applying proxy mechanism to video streaming systems, high-quality and low-delay video destribution can be accomplished without imposing extra load on the system.

In this paper, we propose, design, implement, and avaluate a proxy caching system for MPEG-4 video streaming services. Through evaluations conducted from several performance aspects, we proved that our proxy caching system can provide users with a continuous and high-quality video streaming service in a heterogeneous environment.

    Summary:The proxy mechanism widely used in WWW systems offers low-delay data delivery by means of "proxy server". By applying proxy mechanisms to the video streaming system, we expect that high-quality and low-delay video distribution can be accomplished without introducing extra load on a system. In addition, it is effective for proxy to adapt the quality of cached video data to users requests if requests are diverse due to heterogeneity in terms of the available bandwidth, end-system performance, and user's preferences on the perceived video quality. We have proposed proxy caching mechanisms to accomplish the high-quality and highly-interactive video streaming services. In our proposed system, a video stream is divided into blocks for efficient use of a cache buffer. A proxy server is assumed to be able to adjust the quality of a cached or retrieved video block to a request through video filters. In this paper, to verify the practicality of our mechanisms, we implemented them on a real system and conducted experiments. Through evaluations from several performance aspects, it was shown that our proposed mechanisms can provide users with a video streaming service in a heterogeneous environment.
