Predicting the movements of a mobile phone

22.09.2004


Predicting the movements of mobile cell phone communications systems, thus providing a guarantee of the quality of service (QoS) and offering locating services, as well as recognising imperfect texts on a dictionary basis, are two of the applications demonstrated by José Javier Astrain Escola, engineer in the Public University of Navarre. The tool that makes this task possible is one that employs fuzzy state automatas with empty chain transitions.



At the beginning of the study, this engineer found that there was very little literature on the subject: “As regards the theory fuzzy state automatas with empty chain transitions, there was no work in the literature. Regarding the classification of chains, they were presented as the most common techniques, as probabilistic types although in this PhD, we have shown that fuzzy techniques enable improved final recognition rates than these”.

It is in the mobile cellular communications systems that, “currently great efforts are being made to provide locating mechanisms, quality of service and recognition of the mobility of users with latest–generation systems such as UMTS”.


Thus, José Javier Astrain’s PhD puts forward “a tool that enables the measurement of the similarity between chains, working with imperfect chains of symbols. In this way, we have presented a fuzzy automata which gives rise to various families of values as a function of the parameters employed by said autómata.”

This new automata works with fuzzy state sets and fuzzy symbols chains. The automata was validated “by means of a series of experiments that enabled us to compare the results obtained with other techniques proposed in the literature”.

In this context, the most relevant contribution of the work is “the capacity to work with errors of edition and the handling by the automata of imperfect decisions inherited from the previous stages of classification”.

On terminating the investigation, José Javier Astrain underlined the improvements achieved, “the deformed fuzzy state automata achieving recognition rates of 99% when the observed texts show error rates of 80%”.

Improving service quality

Once the capacity of the fuzzy automatas and deformed fuzzy are shown to tackle the problems of the imperfect recognition of symbols, “we proposed taking on board an industrial problem of great current interest, the application of techniques developed for the management of quality of service in mobile communications systems”.

As regards QoS management in mobile cell phone communications systems, “we offer a model of mobility based on chains of symbols with three different types of coding. The chains of symbols which represent the displacement of the mobile terminal throughout its movements are obtained by the mobile by the triangulation of adjacent base stations. These chains are compared by the fuzzy automata of the terminal with those of a dictionary that represent the most frequent routes within the cell in which the terminal is found. On determining the route followed, this makes it possible for the terminal to initiate the reserve of resources in the target cell with sufficient advance warning thanks to the prediction of location calculated by the automata”.

Thus, “a tool is proposed that enables the satisfactory resolution of these needs at a low computational cost, an interchange of messages between base stations and terminals and that can integrate itself into new designs of these types of networks”.

Im Focus: Quantum Particles Form Droplets

In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.

“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...

The Max Planck Institute for Physics (MPP) is opening up a new research field. A workshop from November 21 - 22, 2016 will mark the start of activities for an innovative axion experiment. Axions are still only purely hypothetical particles. Their detection could solve two fundamental problems in particle physics: What dark matter consists of and why it has not yet been possible to directly observe a CP violation for the strong interaction.

The “MADMAX” project is the MPP’s commitment to axion research. Axions are so far only a theoretical prediction and are difficult to detect: on the one hand,...
