    Article
    Open Access
    The Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) mesh profile, standardized by the Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG), has an increasing interest in IoT solutions. However, the standard assumes that relay and friend nodes should be ...
  • A deep Q-network-based algorithm for multi-connectivity optimization in heterogeneous cellular-networks † 

    Hernández Carlón, Juan Jesús; Pérez Romero, Jordi; Sallent Roig, Oriol; Vilà Muñoz, Irene; Casadevall Palacio, Fernando José (2022-08-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    The use of multi-connectivity has become a useful tool to manage the traffic in heterogeneous cellular network deployments, since it allows a device to be simultaneously connected to multiple cells. The proper exploitation ...
  • Advantages of nonlinear intensity components for contrast-based multispectral pansharpening 

    Arienzo, Alberto; Alparone, Luciano; Garzelli, Andrea; Lolli, Simone (Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute (MDPI), 2022-07-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    In this study, we investigate whether a nonlinear intensity component can be beneficial for multispectral (MS) pansharpening based on component-substitution (CS). In classical CS methods, the intensity component is a linear ...
  • Open source software radio platform for research on cellular networked UAVs: It works!
