Modeling and Reasoning about Preference-Based Context-Aware Agents over Heterogeneous Knowledge Sources

This paper presents a conceptual framework and multi-agent model for context-aware decision support in dynamic smart environments based on heterogeneous knowledge sources. A Protégé plug-in for rules extraction from distributed ontologies has been developed, which allows us to model context-aware agents using the notion of multi-context systems. Extracted rules can be annotated to ...

Optimal Virtualized Inter-Tenant Resource Sharing for Device-to-Device Communications in 5G Networks

Device-to-Device (D2D) communication is expected to enable a number of new services and applications in future mobile networks and has attracted significant research interest over the last few years. Remarkably, little attention has been placed on the issue of D2D communication for users belonging to different operators. In this paper, we focus on this aspect for D2D users that ...

Outage Probability of Device-to-Device Communications in Frequency Reuse-1 Networks

In this paper, we analyse the outage probability of Device-to-Device (D2D) communications in a multi-cell frequency reuse-1 (FRF-1) system. We derive a formula for outage probability of a D2D link in the FRF-1 system when uplink resource sharing between cellular users and D2D users is enabled in the network. Based on this analysis, we propose a location-based power control ...

The Performance Evaluation of Hybrid Localization Algorithm in Wireless Sensor Networks

As one of the key techniques in wireless sensor networks (WSN), localization algorithm has been a research hot topic and indispensable function in most wireless applications. In order to promote localization accuracy and efficiency, a lot of localization algorithms with different performances and computation complexities have been proposed. The paper discusses the drawbacks of some ...
