Closed-form Exact and Asymptotic Expressions for the Symbol Error Rate and Channel Capacity of the H-function Fading Channel
(IEEE Vehicular Technology Society, 2016-04)
In this paper, we derive closed-form exact and asymptotic expressions for the symbol error rate (SER) as well as channel capacity when communicating over the Fox's H-function fading channel. The SER expressions are obtained ...
Drivers and challenges for implementing ISO 14001 environmental management systems in an emerging Gulf Arab country
Worldwide, ISO 14001 certification for organizations has become the norm, but the Arab world accounts for an insignificant portion of all the certified organizations. There is a dearth of research on environmental management ...

Novel Classification System for Classifying Cognitive Workload Levels under Vague Visual Stimulation
This paper presents a novel method for classifying four different levels of cognitive workload. The workload levels are generated using visual stimuli degradation. EEG signals recorded from 16 subjects were used for workload ...
Reliability Centered Maintenance Actions Prioritization Using Fuzzy Inference Systems
Reliability centered maintenance (RCM) is a systematic maintenance philosophy/approach used to analyze system's performance in terms of the impact of a potential failure and select the most efficient maintenance tasks along ...
Glove-Based Continuous Arabic Sign Language Recognition in User-Dependent Mode
In this paper we propose a glove-based Arabic sign language recognition system using a novel technique for sequential data classification. We compile a sensor-based dataset of 40 sentences using an 80-word lexicon. In the ...
Saliency detection in MPEG and HEVC video using intra-frame and inter-frame distances
This paper proposes a video saliency detection model for MPEG and HEVC coded videos. The model extracts features from MPEG macro blocks and HEVC coding units. The feature variables are based on syntax elements and statistics ...
Economic Allocation of Reliability Growth Testing Using Weibull Distributions
Reliability growth testing (RGT) has been widely used for assessing the reliability of complex systems in many industries such as automotive, aerospace, and oil and gas industry. The traditional common and practiced approach ...
An Investigation of Links Between Transport Choices and Health: A Case Study in the UAE
This research examines the relationship between transport/travel choices-- as default decisions that are decidedly influenced by the built environment-- and public health in the UAE. The objective of the research is two-fold: ...
