Article
Full-text available
This work aims to monitor air quality in places where humans spend most of their time, such as workplaces and homes. Radon gas is a naturally occurring, colourless, odourless and tasteless gas that accumulates in enclosed spaces. It is a radioactive element produced by the decay of its natural parent elements, uranium and thorium, which is harmful...
Article
This research work presents a detailed survey about Computational Intelligence (CI) applied to various Hotel and Travel Industry areas. Currently, the hospitality industry’s interest in data science is growing exponentially because of their expected margin of profit growth. In order to provide precise state of the art content, this survey analyses...

Full-text available
In recent years, indoor localization systems based on fingerprinting have had significant advances yielding high accuracies. Those approaches often use information about channel communication, such as channel state information (CSI) and received signal strength (RSS). Nevertheless, these features have always been employed separately. Although CSI p...

In a fully connected world where data freely flows and people can travel anywhere a lot of research has been conducted regarding Smart Mobility, which aims to improve all sorts of traffic matters, from Vehicle Data to Traffic flow management. However, it is also surprising how this topic has been applied in such a small extent to Tourism, an area t...
Article
Full-text available
The Canary Islands are a well known tourist destination with generally stable and clement weather conditions. However, occasionally extreme weather conditions occur, which although very unusual, may cause severe damage to the local economy. The ViMetRi-MAC EU funded project has among its goals, managing climate-change-associated risks. The Spanish...
Article
Full-text available
Indoor localization has received tremendous attention in the last two decades due to location-aware services being highly demanded. Wireless networks have been suggested to solve this problem in many research works, and efficient algorithms have been developed with precise location and high accuracy. Nevertheless, those approaches often have high c...
Article
Full-text available
Indoor localization estimation has become an attractive research topic due to growing interest in location-aware services. Many research works have proposed solving this problem by using wireless communication systems based on radiofrequency. Nevertheless, those approaches usually deliver an accuracy of up to two metres, since they are hindered by...
Article
Full-text available
Indoor localization has gained considerable attention over the past decade because of the emergence of numerous location-aware services. Research works have been proposed on solving this problem by using wireless networks. Nevertheless, there is still much room for improvement in the quality of the proposed classification models. In the last years,...
Article
Full-text available
Ambient Assisted Living (AAL) has become an attractive research topic due to growing interest in remote monitoring of older people. Development in sensor technologies and advances in wireless communications allows to remotely offer smart assistance and monitor those people at their own home, increasing their quality of life. In this context, Wirele...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Indoor positioning estimation has become an attractive research topic due to the growing interest in location-aware services. Many research works have been proposed on solving this problem by using wireless networks. Nevertheless, there is still much work needed to achieve high accuracy levels. In the last years, the emergence of visible light comm...
Article
Full-text available
In the last few years, the increasing use of LEDs in illumination systems has been conducted due to the emergence of Visible Light Communication (VLC) technologies, in which data communication is performed by transmitting through the visible band of the electromagnetic spectrum. In 2011, the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE)...
Article
Full-text available
Indoor position estimation has become an attractive research topic due to growing interest in location-aware services. Nevertheless, satisfying solutions have not been found with the considerations of both accuracy and system complexity. From the perspective of lightweight mobile devices, they are extremely important characteristics, because both t...
Article
Visible Light Communications (VLC) uses visible light spectrum as transmission medium for communications. VLC has gained recent interest as a favorable complement to radio frequency (RF) wireless communications systems due to the ubiquity and wide variety of applications. In 2011 the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers published the st...
Conference Paper
The emerging IEEE 802.11 family of wireless technologies has shown tremendous growth and acceptance as a last hop wireless solution in Local Area Networks (LANs). The use of multimedia networking applications has brought more requirements to the network, creating a need for end-to-end quality of service (QoS). In this context, the standard introduc...
Conference Paper
A mobile ad hoc network (MANET) is an autonomous system of mobile nodes connected by wireless links, which cooperatively and spontaneously form an IP-based network. These networks are infrastructure-free where central administration or configuration by the user are impractical. On the other hand, the Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) was d...
Conference Paper
One of Wireless Local Area Networks (WLAN) main drawbacks, when compared to wired networks, is that WLAN are less predictable and efficient. Wireless physical medium is harder to be controlled than physical wire. WLAN medium is also unlicensed, and thus susceptible to interferences produced by other devices. Therefore, great effort is being done in...
Conference Paper
A mobile ad hoc network is a group of mobile, wireless nodes which cooperatively and spontaneously form an IP-based network. In order to make computing and communication, a node in an IP-based network must be configured with an IP address. On the other hand, the main problem in an ad hoc network is the mobility of the nodes which can lead to freque...
Conference Paper
How to properly handle the multiple conflicting objectives in automatic indoor wireless network planning is a matter of major concern. This issue has been usually addressed establishing beforehand some kind of preferences on the objectives. However, the high complexity of the indoor design problem makes any "a priori" assumption unreliable. This pa...
