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

This paper describes the operation of a proposed method of access to bidirectional local area network buses - called Timed Packet Release or TPR. The method is based on a system of time delays in the nodes, reckoned from a timing reference signal and provides collision free deterministic access for queued packets. A comparative evaluation of the performance of TPR with other methods of bi-directional bus access such as token passing and the reservation protocols is provided. Results, obtained using discrete event simulation models, are presented for the various access protocols. Performance is measured in terms of the average delay-throughput characteristics of the networks. The implementation aspects of TPR are reviewed briefly.
