Unmanned Aerial Vehicles are self-driving vehicles in robotic technology, which are in incremental demand for transportation. In this paper, re-engineering the UAVs model for payload delivery service to enhance the feature of tracking, communication of recorded audio voices, and enlarging of new process to deliver a partial control of the UAVs espe...
Article
The use of Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) beacons is becoming widespread for context-aware learning environments. This technology can be used in indoor and outdoor settings such as museums, shops, home and schools in order to identify the location of learners and their contexts. Specifically, in the constructivist view of learning, learners can use suc...

Assistive technology has the potential to support persons with dementia (PWDs) in their daily life activities and provide them quality of life services. This paper proposes a novel mechanism in order to manage disorientation or time and place problem of PWD through the use of Bluetooth low energy devices, smart watch and smart phone/ tablet. The pr...
Article
Vehicular Ad-hoc NETworks (VANETs) is a special form of Mobile Ad-hoc NETworks (MANETs). The continuous developments in wireless networks have paved the way for the adoption of wireless data exchange for on-road vehicles. The application of VANETs is considered as a key component within the envisioned Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS). One o...

Conference Paper
The use of the ontologies has been prevalent in many domains especially in medical diagnostic systems. Ontologies exhibit features including knowledge representation, reusability, sharing, and logical reasoning support. Thus ontology-driven medical diagnostic systems can assist physicians in order to determine the most probable diagnosis of the pat...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Context-aware mobile learning is considered as one of the promising approaches for learning science education. Students are encouraged to collect information from the real world; they collect information to formulate and test their hypotheses and findings using “learning through doing” process. With the advancement of pervasive technologies, studen...

Emotions are fundamental to human nature. Automatic emotion analysis has gained much attention from researchers over the past few years. The reason is continuous increase in communication over the web. This study proposes an ontology for emotion analysis, called EmotiOn, based on Plutchik’s wheel of emotions. Ontology captures the intrinsic knowled...
Conference Paper
This paper describes a speaker-dependent speech recognition system that recognizes and evaluates the accuracy of the recitation of the selected Quranic verses. It aims to first train the system according to the recitation of the qurra (qualified reciters) and the users themselves. The system uses an open source Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) Sphi...

With the advancement in the use of mobile technology has attracted many educators and researchers to develop mobile science inquiry-based learning activities for educational purposes. In school science education literature, many applications are designed and evaluated using various evaluating frameworks. These evaluations are based on either one or...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The current use of mobile technology in the classroom has attracted many educators and researchers to develop mobile web based learning tools for educational purposes. In school science education, deductive or inductive forms of inquiry are used, while the use of abductive form of inquiry has been sparsely explored. ‘ThinknLearn’, an abductive enqu...
Chapter
This chapter presents the current state of the art on school science inquiry investigations using technology enhanced learning. Traditionally, school science education has been dominated by deductive and inductive style of inquiry investigations. However, abductive style of inquiry investigation has been sparsely explored in the literature related...
