  • van der Mei, Rob; van den Berg, Hans; Ganchev, Ivan; Tutschku, Kurt; Leitner, Philipp; Lassila, Pasi; Burakowski, Wojciech; Liberal, Fidel; Arvidsson, Åke; Hobfeld, Tobias; Wac, Katarzyna; Melvin, Hugh; Galinac Grbac, Tihana; Haddad, Yoram; Key, Peter (2018)
    The explosive growth of the Internet has fundamentally changed the global society. The emergence of concepts like service-oriented architecture (SOA), Software as a Service (SaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS), ...
  • Poryazov, Stoyan; Saranova, Emiliya; Ganchev, Ivan (2018)
    This chapter presents scalable conceptual and analytical performance models of overall telecommunication systems, allowing the prediction of multiple Quality of Service (QoS) indicators as functions of the user- and ...
  • Sivčev, Satja; Coleman, Joseph; Omerdić, Edin; Dooly, Gerard; Toal, Daniel (Elsevier, 2018)
    This paper describes the state-of-the art in the area of underwater robot manipulator systems. A brief introduction is given on the use of manipulators in various offshore industries for different subsea intervention a ...
  • Tian, Ke; Farrrell, Gerald; Lewis, Elfed; Wang, Xianfan; Liang, Haidong; Wang, Pengfei (IOP Publishing, 2018)
    A high sensitivity optical fibre temperature sensor is demonstrated based on a balloon-shaped bent single-mode (BSBS) fibre structure where the fibre retains its original protective polymer coating. The BSBS fibre structure ...
  • Quinn, Declan; Walker, Jacqueline (2008)
    The goal of this paper is to facilitate the use of waveletbased transforms in BSS (and, more generally, ICA) algorithms. We investigate the performance of transforms such as the ContinuousWavelet Transform, Discrete ...
  • Walker, Jacqueline; Murphy, Peter (Springer, 2007)
    Glottal inverse filtering is of potential use in a wide range of speech processing applications. As the process of voice production is, to a first order approximation, a source-filter process, then obtaining source and ...
  • Quinn, Declan; Walker, Jacqueline (2008)
    The goal of this paper is to explore some of the principal spectral and statistical characteristics of music that are relevant to the problem of Blind Source Separation (BSS). Some BSS algorithms require some a priori ...
  • Piccand, Sébastien; O'Neill, Michael; Walker, Jacqueline (2008)
    Particle swarm has proven to be competitive to other evolutionary algorithms in the field of optimization, and in many cases enables a faster convergence to the ideal solution. However, like any optimization algorithm it ...

  • Loughran, Róisín; Walker, Jacqueline; O'Neill, Michael; McDermott, James (Springer, 2012)
    This study uses Genetic Programming (GP) in developing a classi er to distinguish between ve musical instruments. Using only simple arithmetic and boolean operators with 95 features as terminals, a program is developed ...
  • Loughran, Róisín; Walker, Jacqueline; O'Neill, Michael (2009)
    This study explores the use of genetic algorithms (GA) in optimising feature selection for musical instrument recognition. 95 timbral features were used to classify 3006 musical instrument samples into 5 instrument groups. ...
  • Walker, Jacqueline; Murphy, Peter (2003)
    The need for accurate voice source characterisation is an established goal in speech processing research. Practical limitations prohibit the widescale use of a glottal source/vocal tract filter implementation for many ...

  • Johnson, Michael; Fitzpatrick, Colin; Wagner, Michelle; Huisman, Jaco (Elsevier, 2018)
    The implementation of the WEEE Directive in Ireland introduced a formal system for the return & environmentally sound management of WEEE. Visible fees were introduced to cover the cost of the environmentally sound management ...
  • Sivčev, Satja; Rossi, Matija; Coleman, Joseph; Omerdić, Edin; Dooly, Gerard; Toal, Daniel (MDPI, 2018)
    Work-class ROVs equipped with robotic manipulators are extensively used for subsea intervention operations. Manipulators are teleoperated by human pilots relying on visual feedback from the worksite. Operating in a remote ...
  • Walker, Jacqueline; Murphy, Peter (2001)
    The spectral description of voice aperiodicities is important for the introduction of refined voice synthesis parameters and for quantifying voice disorders. A quantitative analysis of the spectral properties of glottal ...
  • Walker, Jacqueline; Genova, Marco (2012)
    Time transfer over satellite links has been explored since the satellite era began. Currently, TWSTFT is routinely used between national timing laboratories to align national timing standards and the GPS provides precise ...
  • Walker, Jacqueline; Cantoni, Antonio (IEEE Computer Society, 2007)
    In constant bit-rate timing transfer, the reference clocks which encode and reconstruct the service clock at origin and destination may be jittered. We present new, straightforward approaches to finding and visualizing ...
  • Walker, Jacqueline; Cantoni, Antonio (IEEE Computer Society, 2010)
    Modern telecommunications networks maintain synchronization and distribute accurate timing information using approaches with strict requirements on clock quality and jitter and wander at interfaces. In the future, packet ...
  • Walker, Jacqueline; Genova, Marco (Taylor and Francis Ltd, 2013)
    Time transfer over satellite links has been explored since the satellite era began. Currently, Two Way Satellite Time and Frequency Transfer (TWSTFT) is routinely used between national timing laboratories to align national ...
