In this paper, we propose a built-in antenna for wireless USB dongle which has a modified structure from the existing planar monopole antenna. The proposed antenna implemented a dual-band characteristic by inserting Strip1, Strip2, Strip3 into the monopole structure combined with `n` shape and feeded 50-Ω using coaxial cable. The antenna is designed on an FR-4 substrate of which the dielectric constant is 4.6, and its overall size is 10 mm × 50 mm × 1mm. Based on the measurement results of the return loss, it was confirmed to satisfy the dual band resonance characteristics of 740 MHz (2.3 ~ 2.7 GHz) and 1,200 MHz (5.15 ~ 5.825 GHz) by -10 dB. In addition, we obtain the omni-directional radiation pattern measurements in the operating frequency bands, and the maximum gain of the proposed antenna has 2.26~3.81 dBi in the 2.4 GHz band and 2.21~5.79 dBi. in the 5.5 GHz band, respectively.

Recently in the field of Big Data, there is a trend of collecting and reprocessing the existing data such as products having high interest of customers and past purchase details to be utilized for the analysis of transaction propensity of users(product recommendations, sales forecasts, etc). Studies related to the propensity of previous users has limitations on its range of subjects and investigation timing and difficult to make predictions on detailed products with lack of real-time thus there exists difficult disadvantages of introducing appropriate and quick sales strategy against the trend. This paper utilizes the machine learning algorithm application to analyze the transaction propensity of users. As a result of applying the machine learning algorithm, it has demonstrated that various indicators which can be deduced by detailed product were able to be extracted.

In very shallow water acoustic communication channel, underwater acoustic (UWA) communication signal is observed as frequency selective fading signal due to time-varying multipath. This induces a time and frequency dependent inter-symbol-interference (ISI) and degrades the UWA system performance. There is no study about how the performances of the error correction codes are related to a multipath fading statistics in very shallow water. In this study, the characteristics of very shallow water multipath fading channel is analyzed and the performances of two different forward error correction (FEC) codes are compared. The convolution code (CC) and Reed-Solomon (RS) code are adopted. Sea experimental results show that RS code is better choice than CC in frequency selective channel with fading.

Kim, Seong-cheol ;
Journal of the Korea Institute of Information and Communication Engineering, volume 19, issue 10, 2015, Pages 2263~2268
DOI : 10.6109/jkiice.2015.19.10.2263
This paper describes packet scheduling techniques that can be used to alleviate the impact of interference. The mechanism is consisted of interference estimation and master delay police. Proposed scheduling police is effective in reducing packet loss and delay. Another advantage worth mentioning, are the additional saving s in the transmitter power since packet are not transmitted when channel is bad. This paper gives that scheduling policy works only with data traffic since voice packets need to be sent at fixed intervals. However, if the delay variance is constant and the delay can be limited to a slot, it may be worthwhile to use DM packet for voice.

Park, Ji-hoon ; Lee, Jaesung ;
Journal of the Korea Institute of Information and Communication Engineering, volume 19, issue 10, 2015, Pages 2321~2330
DOI : 10.6109/jkiice.2015.19.10.2321
A variety of studies for indoor positioning are now being in progress due to the limit of GPS that becomes obsolete in the room. However, most of them are based on private wireless networks and the situation is difficult to commercialize them since they are expensive in terms of installation and maintenance costs, non-real-time, and not accurate. This paper applies the mark recognition algorithm used in existing augmented reality applications to the indoor vehicle positioning application. It installs floor marks on the ground, performs the perspective transformation on it and decodes the internal data of the mark and, as a result, it obtains an absolute coordinate. Through the geometric analysis, it obtains current position (relative coordinates) of a vehicle away from the mark and the heading direction of the vehicle. The experiment results show that when installing the marks every 5 meter, an error under about 30 cm occurred. In addition, it is also shown that the mark recognition rate is 43.2% of 20 frames per second at the vehicle speed of 20km/h. Thus, it is thought that this idea is commercially valuable.

Error Corrected K`th order Goldschmidt`s Floating Point Number Division
Cho, Gyeong-Yeon ;
Journal of the Korea Institute of Information and Communication Engineering, volume 19, issue 10, 2015, Pages 2341~2349
DOI : 10.6109/jkiice.2015.19.10.2341
The commonly used Goldschmidt`s floating-point divider algorithm performs two multiplications in one iteration. In this paper, a tentative error corrected K`th Goldschmidt`s floating-point number divider algorithm which performs K times multiplications in one iteration is proposed. Since the number of multiplications performed by the proposed algorithm is dependent on the input values, the average number of multiplications per an operation in single precision and double precision divider is derived from many reciprocal tables with varying sizes. In addition, an error correction algorithm, which consists of one multiplication and a decision, to get exact result in divider is proposed. Since the proposed algorithm only performs the multiplications until the error gets smaller than a given value, it can be used to improve the performance of a divider unit. Also, it can be used to construct optimized approximate reciprocal tables.
A Proposal Of The Horizontality Development Method On The Spring MVC
Yang, Ill Deung ; Kim, Seong Ryeol ;
Journal of the Korea Institute of Information and Communication Engineering, volume 19, issue 10, 2015, Pages 2350~2358
DOI : 10.6109/jkiice.2015.19.10.2350
The Spring framework including the MVC design concept is the standard in web development in the JAVA environment. The programming style of the structure must be kept strictly, so every web program is able to employ the same structure. It is convenient to distribute jobs, but there are some side effects, like duplication of code, deterioration of professionalization, and deterioration of program performance. To ameliorate those problems, we propose the horizontality development method(HDM) on Spring MVC. We proved that the HDM can solve the problems through the experiment to keep the MVC structure.

DOI : 10.6109/jkiice.2015.19.10.2359
In accordance with development of many smart phone applications, the importance of keypad that can be used in smart phone has been increasing. In this paper, we design the Hangul smart phone keypad to type a Hangeul characters more efficiently by considering the characteristics of the Hangul characters based on the existing research on smart phones keypad. The proposed keypad in this paper, when we placed the letters on the keyboard, minimizes the travel distance by using the frequency of characters and the associated frequency between vowel and consonant. In addition, we define an assessment model for evaluating the performance of the keypad and verify efficiency of the proposed keypad. According to the result of the experiment, the proposed keypad is more efficient than other keypads.

Kang, Hyeong-Ju ;
Journal of the Korea Institute of Information and Communication Engineering, volume 19, issue 10, 2015, Pages 2367~2372
DOI : 10.6109/jkiice.2015.19.10.2367
One of various low-density parity-check(LDPC) codes that has been adopted in many communication standards due to its error correction ability is a quasi-cyclic LDPC(QC-LDPC) code, which leads to comparable decoder complexity. One of the main blocks in the QC-LCDC code decoder is a multi-size circular shifter(MSCS) that can perform various size rotation. The MSCS can be implemented with many structures, one of which is based on Banes network. The Benes network structure can perform the normal MSCS operation efficiently, but it cannot use the properties coming from specifications like rotation sizes. This paper proposesd a scheme where the Benes network structure can use the rotation size property with the modification of the control signal generation. The proposed scheme is applied to the MSCS of IEEE 802.16e WiMAX QC-LDPC decoder to reduce the number of MUXes and the critical path delay.

Efficient Inverter Type Compressor System using the Distribution of the Air Flow Rate
Shim, JaeRyong ; Kim, Yong-Chul ; Noh, Young-Bin ; Jung, Hoe-kyung ;
Journal of the Korea Institute of Information and Communication Engineering, volume 19, issue 10, 2015, Pages 2396~2402
DOI : 10.6109/jkiice.2015.19.10.2396
Air compressor, as an essential equipment used in the factory and plant operations, accounts for around 30% of the total electricity consumption in U.S.A, thereby being proposed advanced technologies to reduce electricity consumption. When the fluctuation of the compressed airflow rate is small, the system stability is increased followed by the reduction of the electricity consumption which results in the efficient design of the energy system. In the statistical analysis, the normal distribution, log normal distribution, gamma distribution or the like are generally used to identify system characteristics. However a single distribution may not fit well the data with long tail, representing sudden air flow rate especially in extremes. In this paper, authors decouple the compressed airflow rate into two parts to present a mixture of distribution function and suggest a method to reduce the electricity consumption. This reduction stems from the fact that a general pareto distribution estimates more accurate quantile value than a gaussian distribution when an airflow rate exceeds over a large number.

Kim, Seehyun ;
Journal of the Korea Institute of Information and Communication Engineering, volume 19, issue 10, 2015, Pages 2403~2408
DOI : 10.6109/jkiice.2015.19.10.2403
For image data the discrete cosine transform (DCT) has comparable energy compaction capability to Karhunen-Loeve transform (KLT) which is optimal. Hence DCT has been widely accepted in various image and video compression standard such as JPEG, MPEG-2, and MPEG-4. Recently some approximate DCT`s have been reported, which can be computed much faster than the original DCT because their coefficients are either zero or the power of 2. Although the level of energy compaction is slightly degraded, the approximate DCT`s can be utilized in real time implementation of image or visual compression applications. In this paper, an approximate 8-point DCT which contains 17 non-zero power-of-2 coefficients and high energy compaction capability comparable to DCT is proposed. Transform coding experiments with several images show that the proposed transform outperforms the published works.

Kim, Jongho ;
Journal of the Korea Institute of Information and Communication Engineering, volume 19, issue 10, 2015, Pages 2409~2416
DOI : 10.6109/jkiice.2015.19.10.2409
This paper presents an orientation-based adaptive prediction method for effective lossless image compression. For a robust prediction, the proposed method estimates the directional information and the property near the current pixel in a support region-based fashion, not a pixel-based one which is sensitive to a small variation. We improve the prediction performance effectively by selection of the prediction pixel adaptively according to the similarity between support regions of the current pixel and the neighboring pixels. Comprehensive experiments demonstrate that the proposed scheme achieves excellent prediction performance measured in entropy of the prediction error compared to a number of conventional prediction methods such as MED, GAP, and EDP. Moreover the complexity of the proposed algorithm measured by average execution time is low compared to MED which is the simplest prediction method.

Mean-Shift tracking using hue has a problem that it fail in the object tracking when background has similar hue to the object. This paper proposes an improved Mean-Shift tracking algorithm using new data instead of a hue. The new data is generated by adaptive mixture of hue and saturation which have low interrelationship . That is, the proposed algorithm selects a main attribute of color that is able to distinguish the object and background well and a secondary one which don`t, and places their upper 4 bits on upper 4 bits and lower 4 bits on the mixture data, respectively. The proposed algorithm properly tracks the object, keeping tracking error maximum 2.0~4.2 pixel and average 0.49~1.82 pixel, by selecting the saturation as the main attribute of color under tracking environment that background has similar hue to the object.

Journal of the Korea Institute of Information and Communication Engineering, volume 19, issue 10, 2015, Pages 2441~2449
DOI : 10.6109/jkiice.2015.19.10.2441
In this digital information era, utilization of images are essential for various media, and the edge is an important characteristical information of an object in images that includes the size, location, direction and etc. Many domestic and international studies are being conducted in order to detect these edge. Existing edge detection methods include Sobel, Prewitt, Roberts, Laplacian, LoG and etc. which apply fixed weight value. As these existing edge detection methods apply fixed weight mask to the image, edge detection characteristic appears slightly insufficient. Accordingly, in order to supplement these problems, this study used bottom-hat transformation from mathematical morphology and opening operation in improving the image and proposed an algorithm that detects for the edge after calculating mask-based gradient. And to evaluate the performance of the proposed algorithm, a comparison was made against the existing Sobel, Roberts, Prewitt, Laplacian, LoG edge detection methods, in illustrating visual images, and similarities were compared by calculating the MSE value based on the standard of each image.

In this paper, we propose a real-time remote monitoring system for distributed solar power generation system. The proposed system consists of PVC, UTC, OTC and monitoring server. PVC collects the operational information from the PV`s inverter via serial interface. The sensing data is transmitted to the server by wireless communications and stored in the DB server. The PV`s status is monitored via UTC, and the operating of PVC and UTC are managed by OTC. In addition, by providing information about the power generated by PV system and failure diagnosis in real time, the proposed system shows the possibility of reducing the maintenance costs and improved failure recovery time.

Distributed Networked Control Systems (NCSs) through wireless networks have a tremendous potential to improve the efficiency of various control systems. In this paper, we define the State Update Interval (SUI) as the elapsed time between successful state vector reports derived from the NCSs. A simple expression of the SUI is derived to characterize the key interactions between the control and communication layers. This performance measure is used to formulate a novel optimization problem where the objective function is the probability to meet the SUI constraint and the decision parameter is the channel access probability. We prove the existence and uniqueness of the optimal channel access probability of the optimization problem. Furthermore, the optimal channel access probability for NCSs is lower than the channel access probability to maximize the throughput. Numerical results indicate that the improvement of the success probability to meet the SUI constraint using the optimal channel access probability increases as the number of nodes increases with respect to that using the channel access probability to maximize the throughput.

Wireless Medium Access Control (MAC) and routing technologies are the basic building blocks making it possible the Internet of Things (IoT). These technologies have been the focus of substantial research in the last decade. Nevertheless, as new networking standards for IoT are being proposed and different solutions are patched together, evaluating the performance of the network becomes unclear. In this paper, a new overview of MAC and routing protocols for IoT and new interactions are given. The IEEE 802.15.4 MAC and Routing Protocol for Low-power Lossy Network (RPL) routing protocols are taken as reference to exemplify and illustrate the discussion. Experimental results show that contention-based access MACs may hurt the routing, unless these two are carefully designed together.

In telemedicaine, people can make their health checked at anywhere from temporal and spatial constraints and It`s environment can provide continuous health information regardless of the location of customers through PCs and smart phones. In addition, personal health information collected utilizing the BYOD(bring your own device) is the most important factor data security and guaranteed personal privacy because it`s directly connected to the individual`s health and life. In this paper, we provide a signature of the private key encryption system and method for providing the security of personal health information data collected utilizing the BYOD. Against replay attacks and man-in-the-middle attacks on security issues that are emerging as a smart environmental health was used as the timestamp and signature methods. Proposed method provides encryption overhead, while a communication was lower compared to the pre-encrypted with a mean 1.499mJ 1.212mJ shown by simulation to respond quickly in an emergency situation to be about 59%.

The issue of PHR is maintained on the server will be in the hospital. PHR information stored on the server, such as a patient`s illness and treatment is very sensitive information. Therefore, patients should be guaranteed the protection of privacy. In addition, the PHR should be allowed to group access of it`s approach. Therefore, in this paper the proposed group signature using hierarchical identity-based encryption schemes into can guarantee the PHR data privacy. The session key generated by group signature, it is use a tiered approach. The generated session keys safe PHR data transmission is possible. The proposed method is average 80% than the PKI encryption and ID-based encryption rather than average 50% the algorithm processing is more efficient

Recently, the most popular technique to determine the Genotype, genetic features of individual organisms, is the GBS based on SNP from sequences determined by NGS. As analyzing the sequences by the GBS, TASSEL is the most used program to identify the genotypes. But, TASSEL has limitation that it uses only the partial sequences that is obtained by NGS. We tried to improve the efficiency in use of the sequences in order to solve the limitation. So, we constructed new data sets by quality checking, filtering the unused sequences with error rate below 0.1% and clipping the sequences considering the location of barcode and enzyme. As a result, approximately over 17% of the SNP detection efficiency was increased. In this paper, we suggest the method and the applied programs in order to detect more SNPs by using the disused sequences.

Proposal assessments for new weapon system development such as C4I system have been applying a qualitative assessment. The main problem of qualitative assessment is that the results vary depending on the evaluator`s subjective preferences and priorities. Also, if there is no discrimination of technical skills degrade, the company will be selected by bid price regardless of technical power. In order to making a fairness, We need a method to compensate for the evaluator`s subjectivity and to enhance discrimination. Previous standardization method is limited because targets of the proposal assessment are minority and have similar skill level. So, The new standardized evaluation methods applicable to the proposal was presented. This way is using the priority instead of the score and has better performance than existing methods as the target numbers are smaller.
