Locomotion Inhibition of Cimex lectularius L. Following Topical, Sublethal Dose Application of the Chitin Synthesis Inhibitor Lufenuron
To date, few studies have evaluated chitin synthesis inhibitors against bed bugs, although they would provide an alternative mode of action to circumvent insecticide resistance. Acute and sublethal effects of lufenuron ...
The Development and Field Evaluation of an IoT System of Low-Power Vibration for Bridge Health Monitoring
Bridge safety is important for the safety of vehicles and pedestrians. This paper presents a study on the development of a low-power wireless acceleration sensor and deployment of the sensors on a wireless gateway and cloud ...
Fabrication of Nanostructured Kaolinite Doped Composite Films from Silicone Rubber with Enhanced Properties
Naturally occurring nanomaterials are finding growing interests in tailoring properties of engineering polymers for advanced applications. The objective of this study was to develop environment-friendly nanocomposite films ...
Multiplexed Analysis of Cage and Cage Free Chicken Egg Fatty Acids Using Stable Isotope Labeling and Mass Spectrometry
Binary stable isotope labeling couple with LC-ESI-MS has been used as a powerful non-targeted approach for the relative quantification of lipids, amino acids, and many other important metabolite classes. A multiplexed ...
Harvesting Energy from the Counterbalancing (Weaving) Movement in Bicycle Riding
Bicycles are known to be rich source of kinetic energy, some of which is available for harvesting during speedy and balanced maneuvers by the user. A conventional dynamo attached to the rim can generate a large amount of ...
JTE v20n1 - Miscellany
(Council on Technology Teacher Education and the International Technology and Engineering Educators Association; Virginia Tech. Digital Library and Archives, 2008)
The Influence of a Thermal Treatment on the Decay Resistance of Wood via FTIR Analysis
The decay resistance of wood can be improved via a vacuum heat treatment. The amount of nutrients from cellulose, hemicellulose, and lignin and amount of sugars needed by the fungi during their growth were investigated. ...
FPGA Dynamic Power Minimization through Placement and Routing Constraints
Field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) are pervasive in embedded systems requiring low-power utilization. A novel power optimization methodology for reducing the dynamic power consumed by the routing of FPGA circuits by ...
The Application of a Nanomaterial Optical Fiber Biosensor Assay for Identification of Brucella Nomenspecies
Bacteria in the genus <i>Brucella</i> are the cause of brucellosis in humans and many domestic and wild animals. A rapid and culture-free detection assay to detect <i>Brucella</i> in clinical samples would be highly valuable. ...
Energy-Efficient Collaborative Outdoor Localization for Participatory Sensing
Location information is a key element of participatory sensing. Many mobile and sensing applications require location information to provide better recommendations, object search and trip planning. However, continuous GPS ...
