The connected car is likely to play a fundamental role in the foreseeable Internet of Things. The connectivity aspect in combination with the available data (e.g. from GPS, on-board diagnostics, road sensors) and video (e.g. from dashcams and traffic cameras) streams enable a range of new applications, e.g., accident avoidance, online route planning, energy optimization, etc. These applications, however, come with an additional set of requirements which are not accommodated by the state-of-the-art stream processing platforms. We have built World-Wide Streams (WWS), a novel stream processing platform that has been explicitly designed with those requirements in mind. In this demo presentation, we will demonstrate a number of connected car scenarios that we have built on top of WWS.

Fair Dynamic Spectrum Management for QRD-Based Precoding with User Encoding Ordering in Downstream G.fast Transmission

In next generation DSL networks such as G.fast, employing discrete multi-tone transmission in high frequencies up to 212 MHz, the crosstalk among lines reaches very high levels. To precompensate the crosstalk in downstream transmission, QRD-based precoding has been proposed as a near-optimal dynamic spectrum management (DSM) technique. However, the performance ...

Practical Mitigation of Passive Intermodulation in Microstrip Circuits

This paper presents new experimental evidence and a novel practical approach for mitigation of passive intermodulation (PIM) in microstrip circuits fabricated on commercial printed circuit board laminates. The mechanisms of distributed PIM in microstrip circuits are reviewed and a phenomenology of PIM generation due to locally enhanced electromagnetic fields at ...

Efficient Cooperative HARQ for Multi-Source Multi-Relay Wireless Networks

In this paper, we compare the performance of three different cooperative Hybrid Automatic Repeat reQuest (HARQ) protocols for slow-fading half-duplex orthogonal multiple access multiple relay channel. Channel State Information (CSI) is available at the receiving side of each link only. Time Division Multiplexing is assumed, where each orthogonal transmission occurs ...
