    A Dual-spline Approach to Load Error Repair in a HEMS Sensor Network

    Xiaodong Liu1, Qi Liu1,*

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.57, No.2, pp. 179-194, 2018, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2018.04025

    Abstract In a home energy management system (HEMS), appliances are becoming diversified and intelligent, so that certain simple maintenance work can be completed by appliances themselves. During the measurement, collection and transmission of electricity load data in a HEMS sensor network, however, problems can be caused on the data due to faulty sensing processes and/or lost links, etc. In order to ensure the quality of retrieved load data, different solutions have been presented, but suffered from low recognition rates and high complexity. In this paper, a validation and repair method is presented to detect potential failures More >

    A Memory-efficient Simulation Method of Grover's Search Algorithm

    Xuwei Tang1, Juan Xu1,2,3,*, Bojia Duan1

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.57, No.2, pp. 307-319, 2018, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2018.03693

    Abstract Grover's search algorithm is one of the most significant quantum algorithms, which can obtain quadratic speedup of the extensive search problems. Since Grover's search algorithm cannot be implemented on a real quantum computer at present, its quantum simulation is regarded as an effective method to study the search performance. When simulating the Grover's algorithm, the storage space required is exponential, which makes it difficult to simulate the high-qubit Grover's algorithm. To this end, we deeply study the storage problem of probability amplitude, which is the core of the Grover simulation algorithm. We propose a novel… More >

    Research on Hybrid Model of Garlic Short-term Price Forecasting based on Big Data

    Baojia Wang1, Pingzeng Liu1,*, Zhang Chao1, Wang Junmei1, Weijie Chen1, Ning Cao2, Gregory M.P. O’Hare3, Fujiang Wen1

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.57, No.2, pp. 283-296, 2018, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2018.03791

    Abstract Garlic prices fluctuate dramatically in recent years and it is very difficult to predict garlic prices. The autoregressive integrated moving average (ARIMA) model is currently the most important method for predicting garlic prices. However, the ARIMA model can only predict the linear part of the garlic prices, and cannot predict its nonlinear part. Therefore, it is urgent to adopt a method to analyze the nonlinear characteristics of garlic prices. After comparing the advantages and disadvantages of several major prediction models which used to forecast nonlinear time series, using support vector machine (SVM) model to predict… More >

    A MPTCP Scheduler for Web Transfer

    Wenjun Yang1, Pingping Dong1,2,*, Wensheng Tang1, Xiaoping Lou1, Hangjun Zhou3, Kai Gao4, Haodong Wang5

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.57, No.2, pp. 205-222, 2018, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2018.03726

    Abstract Multipath TCP (MPTCP) is the most significant extension of TCP that enables transmission via multiple paths concurrently to improve the resource usage and throughput of long flows. However, due to the concurrent multiple transfer (CMT) in short flow trans-mission, the congestion window (cwnd) of each MPTCP subflow is too small and it may lead to timeout when a single lost packet cannot be recovered through fast retransmission. As a result, MPTCP has even worse performance for short flows compared to regular TCP. In this paper, we take the first step to analyze the main reason… More >

    Research on Operation of UAVs in Non-isolated Airspace

    Zhaoyue Zhang1, *, Jing Zhang2, Peng Wang1, Lei Chen3

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.57, No.1, pp. 151-166, 2018, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2018.02890

    Abstract In order to explore the safe operation of UAVs in non-segregated airspace, a collision risk model for cylindrical UAVs based on conflict areas was constructed and the risk of conflict between manned and unmanned aerial vehicles was researched. According to the results of risk analysis, a strategy for solving the conflict of aircraft is proposed, and the risk assessment experiment of unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) in non-isolated airspace conflict is carried out. The results show that under the experimental conditions, large unmanned aerial vehicles equipped with ADS-B, TCAS and other airborne sensing systems will indeed More >

    Dynamical Interaction Between Information and Disease Spreading in Populations of Moving Agents

    Lingling Xia1, Bo Song2,3, Zhengjun Jing4, Yurong Song5,*, Liang Zhang1

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.57, No.1, pp. 123-144, 2018, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2018.03738

    Abstract Considering dynamical disease spreading network consisting of moving individuals, a new double-layer network is constructed, one where the information dissemination process takes place and the other where the dynamics of disease spreading evolves. On the basis of Markov chains theory, a new model characterizing the coupled dynamics between information dissemination and disease spreading in populations of moving agents is established and corresponding state probability equations are formulated to describe the probability in each state of every node at each moment. Monte Carlo simulations are performed to characterize the interaction process between information and disease spreading More >

    Method of Time Series Similarity Measurement Based on Dynamic Time Warping

    Lianggui Liu1,*, Wei Li1, Huiling Jia1

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.57, No.1, pp. 97-106, 2018, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2018.03511

    Abstract With the rapid development of mobile communication all over the world, the similarity of mobile phone communication data has received widely attention due to its advantage for the construction of smart cities. Mobile phone communication data can be regarded as a type of time series and dynamic time warping (DTW) and derivative dynamic time warping (DDTW) are usually used to analyze the similarity of these data. However, many traditional methods only calculate the distance between time series while neglecting the shape characteristics of time series. In this paper, a novel hybrid method based on the More >

    Crowdsourcing-Based Framework for Teaching Quality Evaluation and Feedback Using Linguistic 2-Tuple

    Tiejun Wang1, Tao Wu1,*, Amir Homayoon Ashrafzadeh2, Jia He1

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.57, No.1, pp. 81-96, 2018, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2018.03259

    Abstract Crowdsourcing is widely used in various fields to collect goods and services from large participants. Evaluating teaching quality by collecting feedback from experts or students after class is not only delayed but also not accurate. In this paper, we present a crowdsourcing-based framework to evaluate teaching quality in the classroom using a weighted average operator to aggregate information from students’ questionnaires described by linguistic 2-tuple terms. Then we define crowd grade based on similarity degree to distinguish contribution from different students and minimize the abnormal students’ impact on the evaluation. The crowd grade would be… More >

    Research on Trust Model in Container-Based Cloud Service

    Xiaolan Xie1,2, Tianwei Yuan1,*, Xiao Zhou3, Xiaochun Cheng4

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.56, No.2, pp. 273-283, 2018, DOI: 10.3970/cmc.2018.03587

    Abstract Container virtual technology aims to provide program independence and resource sharing. The container enables flexible cloud service. Compared with traditional virtualization, traditional virtual machines have difficulty in resource and expense requirements. The container technology has the advantages of smaller size, faster migration, lower resource overhead, and higher utilization. Within container-based cloud environment, services can adopt multi-target nodes. This paper reports research results to improve the traditional trust model with consideration of cooperation effects. Cooperation trust means that in a container-based cloud environment, services can be divided into multiple containers for different container nodes. When multiple More >
