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

In this paper we show how 5 GHz and “TV White Space” wireless networks can be combined to provide fixed access for a rural community. Using multiple technologies allows the advantages of each to be combined to overcome individual limitations when assigning stations between networks. Specifically, we want to maximise throughput under the constraint of satisfying both the desired individual station data rate and the transmit power within regulatory limits. For this optimisation, we employ Pearl's algorithm, a Bayesian belief propagation implementation, which is informed by statistics drawn from network trials on Isle of Tiree with 100 households. The method confirms results obtained with an earlier deterministic approach.
