Presented our Work on smart IoT prototype for transportation at TRB 96th Annual Meeting

We presented our work on a smart IoT prototype for transportation at 96th Transportation Research Board (TRB) Annual Meeting. This technique can be combined with the smart traffic signals to gain more potential in achieving safer and more efficient urban mobility. Making inappropriate driving decisions at signalized intersections is one of the major reasons causing accidents. In this paper, the authors present an integrated in-vehicle decision su

Joined the Program Committee Board for International Workshop on the Internet of Agents (IoA)

Our Co-Founder, Dr. Xie, is pleased to join the Program Committee Board for the First International Workshop on the Internet of Agents (IoA). Here is the CFP: On the confluence between Multi-Agent Systems (MAS) and the Internet of Things (IoT), there is a strong ongoing trend for the IoT to seize the intelligent nature/architecture of the MAS. In the Internet of Agents (IoA) workshop, we aim to understand the current range of nascent network cent

Presented our work on optimized particle-based computational simulation at Symposium on Computational Heat Transfer

We presented our work on optimized particle-based computational simulation at the ICHMT International Symposium on Advances in Computational Heat Transfer (CHT), Piscataway, NJ. We present an optimized particle-based computational method for studying kinetics, computing nucleation rate, and analyzing mechanism of both homogeneous and heterogeneous bubble nucleation. As a rare event, bubble nucleation is difficult to study with traditional computa
