Article
The research presented in this paper is aiming to address the safety issue that hearing-impaired people are facing when it comes to identifying a siren sound. For that purpose, a siren identification system, using deep learning, was designed, built, and tested. The system consists of a convolutional neural network that used image recognition techni...
Conference Paper
Sound recording and processing techniques can be used in designing diagnostic solutions for a variety of medical conditions related to the respiratory system. In this spectrum, cough monitoring for chronic or seasonal conditions is a significant medical practice. In this paper, a precise cough identification and monitoring system is presented. The...
Article
Voice-to-MIDI real-time conversion is a challenging problem that comes with a series of obstacles and complications. The main issue is the tracking of the human voice pitch. Extracting the voice fundamental frequency can be inaccurate and highly computationally exacting due to the spectral complexity of voice signals. In addition, on account of mic...

The advent of music synthesizers created the need for encoding musical performance. For that, several MIDI-based, claviers, wind instruments, guitar, percussion, and also several expression controllers were created. However, the human singing voice, which is the dominant means of musical expression, has not been used extensively for that purpose. T...

The evolution of music technology during the last decades, created a significant need for encoding the musical performance. Thus, a series of music execution controllers and protocol were developed to cover this need. However, the human singing voice, which is the dominant means of musical expression, has not been used extensively for that purpose....

The use of network infrastructures to replace conventional professional audio systems is a rapidly increasing field which is expected to play an important role within the professional audio industry. Currently, the market is dominated by numerous proprietary protocols which do not allow interoperability and do not promote the evolution of this sect...

Gene expression programming (GEP) is a data driven evolutionary technique that well suits for correlation mining. Parallel GEPs are proposed to speed up the evolution process using a cluster of computers or a computer with multiple CPU cores. However, the generation structure of chromosomes and the size of input data are two issues that tend to be...
Conference Paper

The growing need for multimedia applications within wireless Local Area Networks (LAN) demands reliable and efficient broadcasting and multicasting transmission of throughput sensitive data, like audio and video. IEEE 802.11 standard which is the primary technology in wireless LANs was not initially designed to handle heavy broadcasting traffic. Ho...

This paper proposes a new information model of smart consumers where the appliances are not regarded independently such as in traditional scheduling algorithms or home energy management systems, but through a set of common attributes that make up the generic appliance model. Each appliance is generalized by its set of particular attributes. The nov...
Conference Paper
The increasing use of multimedia streaming applications in addition with advent of internet television and radio, demands from today's wireless networks to handle with reliability multiple broadcasting and multicasting sources. However, the way that 802.11 standard, which is the primary technology in wireless networking, handle this type of traffic...
Conference Paper
A prototype platform was designed, implemented and tested to act as the foundation of a novel intelligent home energy management system which can manage the overall consumption of a house while taking into account user preferences and dynamic tariffs. In order to reduce the implementation cost and to increase the platform stability, the system was...

I need to modify the congestion control algorithm in the MAC layer of IEEE 802.11- (WiFi) in a real world, hardware implementation. Does anyone know any developing tool that provides access to the code (and the necessary documentation), in that low layer of the TCP/IP stack?

Audio networking is a growing field, introducing new and exiting possibilities in the professional audio industry; but it also drastically changes the way audio systems will be designed, built, and used. Currently there are many systems on the market that distribute audio over Ethernet but the majority of sound engineers are not using them yet. There are mainly two reasons for that. First, many of the systems are based on a proprietary implementation that does not allow interoperability between different vendors. Second, wired networks, like the conventional analog audio networks, also need a cable installation. It is therefore understood that the development of a wireless digital audio distribution system would be a significant contribution in this sector. In this project we investigate the drawbacks of the IEEE 802.11 MAC algorithm in handling multiple stations broadcasting of audio data. We simulate a live audio data wireless network and test the limits of the protocol for this type of traffic we modify the 802.11 MAC algorithm to address the above problems and we also work on hardware implementation of the above modifications.
