Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

State-of-the-art systems for the transmission of images over wireless channels generate an embedded bitstream and protect it with a product code where the row code is a concatenation of an outer cyclic redundancy check (CRC) code and an inner rate-compatible punctured convolutional (RCPC) code, and the column code is a Reed-Solomon (RS) code. In previous works, the product code was optimized by searching for the best RS protection for each RCPC code rate. We present a local search algorithm that jointly optimizes the RS and the RCPC codes. Experimental results show that our algorithm provides an approximately optimal solution, while its time complexity is much lower than that of the previous works.
