    Synchronization of the Train PIS using the reference clock and development of a subtitle authoring tool

    JeongHun Kim , 장동욱 , Han Kwang Rok | 2007, 12(4) | pp.1~10 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    This paper describes the development of a network-based passenger information system(PIS) which provides the convenience of the passenger of the train and heightens the effect of the subtitle service, the advertising and the shelter guidance broadcasting against the urgent event. The existing system uses VGA signal distributor in order to broadcast information with image and subtitle and voice guidance. In this paper we improve the existing system by applying the UDP and TCP/IP protocol and use a reference clock to solve a data loss and synchronization problem which occurs in this case. We also developed an XML-based subtitle authoring tool which can edit and play the subtitles with various 3D to improve the automatic guidance broadcasting and advertisement effect according to the operation schedule of the train. The system performance was evaluated through a simulation.

    A Study on Small-sized Index Structure and Fast Retrieval Method Using The RCB trie

    정규철 | 2007, 12(4) | pp.11~20 | number of Cited : 1
    Abstract PDF
    This paper proposes RCB(Reduced Compact Binary) trie to correct faults of both CB(Compact Binary) trie and HCB(Hierarchical Compact Binary) trie. First, in the case of CB trie, a compact structure was tried for the first time, but as the amount of data was increasing, that of inputted data gained and much difficulty was experienced in insertion due to the dummy nods used in balancing trees. On the other hand, if the HCB trie realized hierarchically, given certain depth to prevent the map from increasing on the right, reached the depth, the method for making new trees and connecting to them was used. Eventually, fast progress could be made in the inputting and searching speed, but this had a disadvantage of the storage space becoming bigger because of the use of dummy nods like CB trie and of many tree links. In the case of RCB trie in this thesis, the tree-map could be reduced by about 35% by completely cutting down dummy nods and the whole size by half, compared with the HCB trie.

    Tae-Ho Kim , LEE, Hong Chul , 천현재 and 1 other persons | 2007, 12(4) | pp.21~32 | number of Cited : 1
    Abstract PDF
    This paper presents an SOA framework that enables smooth provision of service to ordinary users while also replacing the current B2B environment-oriented SOA framework. To that end, the proposed SOA will be reviewed for its concept, characteristics, and components. Key to its design is that it will be implemented using the prospective next-generation P2P platform known as JXTA. The proposed framework includes all the basic functions of other SOA frameworks, and will make provision and use of services more easy compared with other frameworks. Under this service, data and applications controlling these data are provided in an enabling format, thereby addressing security problems. Another advantage of this proposed framework is that each peer is able to play all roles of a service provider, service client, and service registry.

    The Study for ENHPP Software Reliability Growth Model based on Burr Coverage Function

    Kim Hee Chul | 2007, 12(4) | pp.33~42 | number of Cited : 5
    Abstract PDF
    Accurate predictions of software release times, and estimation of the reliability and availability of a software product require quantification of a critical element of the software testing process : test coverage. This model called Enhanced non-homogeneous poission process(ENHPP). In this paper, exponential coverage and S-shaped model was reviewed, proposes the Kappa coverage model, which maked out efficiency application for software reliability. Algorithm to estimate the parameters used to maximum likelihood estimator and bisection method, model selection based on SSE statistics and Kolmogorov distance, for the sake of efficient model, was employed. From the analysis of mission time, the result of this comparative study shows the excellent performance of Burr coverage model rather than exponential coverage and S-shaped model using NTDS data. This analysis of failure data compared with the Kappa coverage model and the existing model(using arithmetic and Laplace trend tests, bias tests) is presented.

    Performance Evaluation of QoS-based Web Services Selection Models

    Sang Koo Seo | 2007, 12(4) | pp.43~52 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    As the number of public Web Services increases, there will be many services with the same functionality. These services, however, will vary in their QoS properties, such as price, response time and availability, and it is very important to choose a best service while satisfying given QoS constraints. This paper brings parallel branching and response time constraint of business processes into focus and investigates several service selection plans based on multidimensional multiple choice Knapsack model. Specifically, proposed in the paper are a plan with response time constraints for each execution flow, a plan with a single constraint over the whole service types and a plan with a constraint on a particular execution path of a composite Web Services. Experiments are conducted to observe the performance of each plan with varying the number of services, the number of branches and the values of response time constraint. Experimental results show that reducing the number of candidate services using Pareto Dominance is very effective and the plan with a constraint over the whole service types is efficient in time and solution quality for small to medium size problems.

    A Real-time Color Quantization Method for Virtual Environments Navigation System

    임헌규 , Paik Doowon | 2007, 12(4) | pp.53~60 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    A navigation system for virtual environments using low-quality HMD(head mounted display) must quantize images when the system presents true-color image with restricted number of colors. Such navigation system quantizes an image by using fixed palette. If the system represents an image by using a variable palette which is made considering a region around the viewpoint then user can perceive a virtual environments more vividly because human visual system is sensitive to the colors variation in the region around the viewpoint. In this paper we propose a color quantization algorithm that quantize a region around the viewpoint more finely than other regions at each variation of viewpoint for virtual environments navigation system and compose virtual environments navigation system using proposed algorithm. The system quantizes an image at each variation of viewpoint and shows a quantized image to user through HMD. We tested user preferences for our proposed system and the results show that users preferred our system.

    Boundary Contraction for Wide-Angle Images on Monitor Screen: An Effect of Retention Interval

    Phil-Sik Jang | 2007, 12(4) | pp.61~68 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    Two experiments examined the visual memory distortion by presenting 170 subjects with wide-angle views of four scenes on monitor screen. Retention interval of 0, 1 and 48 hours tested in reproduction and recognition experiment. The results of reproduction showed that the subjects tend to magnify the foreground and background of scenes compared to the real input (scene) for all retention intervals. The viewers recognized more wide-angle views for the same scenes at the retention interval of 1 and 48 hours. These results demonstrated boundary extension is not a robust and unidirectional phenomenon but boundary contraction can be occurred with wide-angle views. The results also suggested that boundary contraction is the product of the activation of a memory schema hypothesis: In memory the representation moves toward a prototypical view and prototypical object size.

    김종수 , 최종호 , KangHo-Lee and 2 other persons | 2007, 12(4) | pp.87~94 | number of Cited : 1
    Abstract PDF
    Imbalances in focus, luminance and color between stereo pairs could cause disparity vector estimation error and increment of transmission data. If the distribution of errors in residual image is large, it may influence to lowering of compression performance. Therefore, in this paper, we propose an efficient balancing method between stereo pairs to reduce the effect. For this, we registrated stereo images using a FFT based method.to consider the pixels in the occluded region, we eliminated the pixels of blocks which has large error of disparity vector estimation in balancing function estimation. The balancing function has estimated using histogram specification, local information of target image and residual image between stereo images. Experiments show that the proposed method is effective in error distribution, PSNR and disparity vector estimation. We expect that our method can be improving compression efficiency in stereo coding system.

    An Attribute-Based Naming Architecture for Wireless Sensor Networks

    Eui-Hyun Jung | 2007, 12(4) | pp.95~102 | number of Cited : 1
    Abstract PDF
    Recently, a lot of researchers focus on the sensor middleware that hide the complexity of application developments and provide the abstraction of functions to upper application layer. Although there are several factors to design sensor middleware, the attribute-based naming is considered to be an essential factor among them. However, most existing researches were not designed to reflect the characteristics of sensor networks and have the limitation of attribute-based query extension. This study adopts the concept of Virtual Counterpart to suggest the structure where attribute-based naming is supported by virtual sensor nodes of the middleware on the sink node. Unlike traditional data-centric middleware in which individual sensor nodes process attribute-based query, virtual sensor nodes mapped to physical sensor nodes are running on the middleware of the sink node and process attribute-based query as a proxy of the physical sensor. This approach enables attribute-based naming independent of physical infrastructure and easy extensibility.

    Abstract PDF
    We present an efficient decoding scheme for Huffman codes in which we use a properties of canonical prefix tree. After Huffman tree is converted to canonical Huffman tree, we represent Huffman tree with minimum information using rules associated with values of nodes in canonical tree. The proposed scheme can reduce memory to store Huffman tree information while maintains the same processing time. The memory size in order to represent tree information is log which is less than those of previous methods. But the number of search is similar to previously proposed techniques.

    A study on broadcasting service model of medium wave digital radio

    한학수 | 2007, 12(4) | pp.149~158 | number of Cited : 2
    Abstract PDF
    A In the rapidly changing media environment, radio needs to be digitized in order to provide regular compatible service. Especially, most medium high frequency Medias have program contents that are similar to the standard FM bandwidth, so digitizing radio will bring less effect than it is expected. However, the characteristics of radio medias are mobility, individuality, site-to-site, wide service coverage, immediate delivery and publicity, so it is necessary to study the future of radio media to provide continuous services, moreover, the main discussion regarding balanced development between medias will be the trend of the digitization of radio. Also it is easy and will cost less to change compared to other medias. AM was the first media to broadcast in Korea, and its network is spread all over Korea, also the receivers are the most widely distributed which means the signal reaches everywhere in Korea. In this study, the proper service model for AM digital radio is provided in this environment in which all Medias are rapidly digitizing due to the advancement of digital technology.

    Han-Ju Yoo , CHOI IN SOO | 2007, 12(4) | pp.179~190 | number of Cited : 3
    Abstract PDF
    Every purchase a customer makes builds patterns about how products are purchased together. The process of finding these patterns, called market basket analysis, is composed of two steps in the Microsoft Association Algorithm. The first step is to find frequent item-sets. The second step which requires much less time than the first step does is to generate association rules based on frequent item-sets. Even though the first step, finding frequent item-sets, is the core part of market basket analysis, when applied to Online Analytical Processing(OLAP) cubes it always raises several points such as longitudinal analysis becomes impossible and many unpractical transactions are built up. In this paper, a new OLAP cube structures designing method which makes longitudinal analysis be possible and also makes only real customers' purchase patterns be identified is proposed for market basket analysis.

    Abstract PDF
    Wireless sensor network system is expected to get high attention in research for now and future owing to the advanced hardware development technology and its various applicabilities. Among variety of sensor network systems, the seashore and marine sensor network, which are extended to get sampling of marine resources, environmental monitoring to prevent disaster and to be applied to the area of sea route guidance. For these marine applications to be available, however, the provision of precise location information of every sensor nodes is essential. In this paper, the sequential localization algorithm for obtaining the location information of marine sensor nodes. The sequential localization is done with the utilization of a small number of beacon nodes along the seashore and gets the location of nodes by controling the sequences of localization and also minimizes the error accumulation. The key idea of this algorithm for localization is that the localization priority of each sensor nodes is determined by the number of reference nodes' information. This sequential algorithm shows the improved error performance and also provide the increased coverage of marine sensor network by enabling the maximum localization of sensor nodes as possible.
