Erasure Coding and Congestion Control for Interactive Real-Time Communication [article]

Pierre-Ugo Tournoux, Tuan Tran Thai, Emmanuel Lochin, Jerome Lacan, Vincent Roca
2012 arXiv   pre-print
The use of real-time applications over the Internet is a challenging problem that the QoS epoch attempted to solve by proposing the DiffServ architecture. Today, the only existing service provided by the Internet is still best-effort. As a result, multimedia applications often perform on top of a transport layer that provides a variable sending rate. In an obvious manner, this variable sending rate is an issue for these applications with strong delay constraint. In a real-time context where

Joint On-the-Fly Network Coding/Video Quality Adaptation for Real-Time Delivery [article]

Tuan Tran Thai, Jérôme Lacan, Emmanuel Lochin
2013 arXiv   pre-print
This paper introduces a redundancy adaptation algorithm for an on-the-fly erasure network coding scheme called Tetrys in the context of real-time video transmission. The algorithm exploits the relationship between the redundancy ratio used by Tetrys and the gain or loss in encoding bit rate from changing a video quality parameter called the Quantization Parameter (QP). Our evaluations show that with equal or less bandwidth occupation, the video protected by Tetrys with redundancy adaptation

We demonstrate that the Tetrys redundancy adaptation algorithm performs well with the variations of both loss pattern and delay induced by the networks. We also show that Tetrys with the redundancy adaptation algorithm outperforms FEC with and without redundancy adaptation.

Online multipath convolutional coding for real-time transmission

Tuan Tran Thai, Emmanuel Lochin, Jerome Lacan
2012 2012 19th International Packet Video Workshop (PV)  
Most of multipath multimedia streaming proposals use Forward Error Correction (FEC) approach to protect from packet losses. However, FEC does not sustain well burst of losses even when packets from a given FEC block are spread over multiple paths. In this article, we propose an online multipath convolutional coding for real-time multipath streaming based on an on-the-fly coding scheme called Tetrys. We evaluate the benefits brought out by this coding scheme inside an existing FEC multipath load

We also propose a modification of the standard EMS algorithm that greatly improves the performance in terms of packet recovery. Finally, we analyze different spreading policies of the Tetrys redundancy traffic between available paths and observe that the longer propagation delay path should be preferably used to carry repair packets.

Arriving on time: estimating travel time distributions on large-scale road networks [article]

Timothy Hunter, Aude Hofleitner, Jack Reilly, Walid Krichene, Jerome Thai, Anastasios Kouvelas, Pieter Abbeel, Alexandre Bayen
2013 arXiv   pre-print
Most optimal routing problems focus on minimizing travel time or distance traveled. Oftentimes, a more useful objective is to maximize the probability of on-time arrival, which requires statistical distributions of travel times, rather than just mean values. We propose a method to estimate travel time distributions on large-scale road networks, using probe vehicle data collected from GPS. We present a framework that works with large input of data, and scales linearly with the size of the

First, raw probe vehicle traces are compressed into pairs of travel times and number of stops for each traversed road segment using a 'stop-and-go' algorithm developed for this work. The compressed data is then used as input for training a path travel time model, which couples a Markov model along with a Gaussian Markov random field. Finally, scalable inference algorithms are developed for obtaining path travel time distributions from the composite MM-GMRF model. We illustrate the accuracy and scalability of our model on a 505,000 road link network spanning the San Francisco Bay Area.

Combined state-parameter estimation for shallow water equations

Mohammad Rafiee, Andrew Tinka, Jerome Thai, Alexandre M. Bayen
2011 Proceedings of the 2011 American Control Conference  
In this article, a method for assimilating data into the shallow water equations when some of the model parameters are unknown is presented. The one dimensional Saint-Venant equations are used as a model of water flow in open channels. Using these equations, a nonlinear statespace model is obtained. Lagrangian measurements of the flow velocity field are used as observations or measurements. These measurements may be obtained from a group of drifters equipped with GPS receivers and communication

Using the derived state-space model, the extended Kalman filter is used to estimate the state and the unknown model parameters given the latest measurements. The performance of the method is evaluated using data collected from an experiment performed at the USDA-ARS Hydraulic Engineering Research Unit (HERU) in Stillwater, Oklahoma in November 2009. M.

Review of the clavatus group of the lanternfly genus Pyrops (Hemiptera: Fulgoromorpha: Fulgoridae)

Jérôme Constant, Hong-Thai Pham
2017 European Journal of Taxonomy  
The clavatus group of Pyrops Spinola, 1839 is reviewed and redefined. The new combination Pyrops atroalbus (Distant, 1918) comb. nov. is proposed, as atroalbus is reinstated as a full species from status of subspecies of Pyrops watanabei (Matsumura, 1913). Pyrops nigripennis (Chou & Wang, 1985) and Pyrops clavatus mizunumai (Sato & Nagai, 1994) are proposed as junior synonyms of P. clavatus (Westwood, 1839). The Philippine species P. polillensis (Baker, 1925) is removed from the group and not

Hence, the clavatus group is restricted to continental Southeast Asia and Taiwan and contains three species: P. atroalbus comb. nov., P. clavatus and P. watanabei. A key to the species of the group and illustrations of the male genitalia are provided. The intraspecific colour variation in the group is discussed and illustrated. The genus Pyrops is removed from the subfamily Fulgorinae and not attributed to any of the currently defined subfamilies of Fulgoridae.

Stop or Continue Data Collection: A Nonignorable Missing Data Approach for Continuous Variables

Thais Paiva, Jerome P. Reiter
2017 Journal of Official Statistics  
We present an approach to inform decisions about nonresponse follow-up sampling. The basic idea is (i) to create completed samples by imputing nonrespondents' data under various assumptions about the nonresponse mechanisms, (ii) take hypothetical samples of varying sizes from the completed samples, and (iii) compute and compare measures of accuracy and cost for different proposed sample sizes. As part of the methodology, we present a new approach for generating imputations for multivariate

We fit mixtures of multivariate normal distributions to the respondents' data, and adjust the probabilities of the mixture components to generate nonrespondents' distributions with desired features. We illustrate the approaches using data from the 2007 U.S. Census of Manufactures.

Unravelling the mechanism of non-ribosomal peptide synthesis by cyclodipeptide synthases

Mireille Moutiez, Emmanuelle Schmitt, Jérôme Seguin, Robert Thai, Emmanuel Favry, Pascal Belin, Yves Mechulam, Muriel Gondry
2014 Nature Communications  
Cyclodipeptide synthases form cyclodipeptides from two aminoacyl transfer RNAs. They use a ping-pong mechanism that begins with transfer of the aminoacyl moiety of the first aminoacyl tRNA onto a conserved serine, yielding an aminoacyl enzyme. Combining X-ray crystallography, site-directed mutagenesis and affinity labelling of the cyclodipeptide synthase AlbC, we demonstrate that the covalent intermediate reacts with the aminoacyl moiety of the second aminoacyl tRNA, forming a dipeptidyl

State Estimation for the discretized LWR PDE using explicit polyhedral representations of the Godunov scheme

Jerome Thai, Boris Prodhomme, Alexandre M. Bayen
2013 2013 American Control Conference  
This article investigates the problem of estimating the state of discretized hyperbolic scalar partial differential equations. It uses a Godunov scheme to discretize the socalled Lighthill-Whitham-Richards equation with a triangular flux function, and proves that the resulting nonlinear dynamical system can be decomposed in a piecewise affine manner. Using this explicit representation, the system is written as a switching dynamical system (hybrid system), with an exponential number of modes.

Numerical results are presented using the Mobile Millennium data set, and compared to results obtained using ensemble Kalman filtering, which is used for estimation in traffic monitoring.

Experimental study of shear bands formation in a granular material

Thai Binh Nguyen, Sean McNamara, Jérôme Crassous, Axelle Amon, F. Radjai, S. Nezamabadi, S. Luding, J.Y. Delenne
2017 EPJ Web of Conferences  
We present an experimental investigation of the formation of shear bands in a granular sample submitted to a biaxial test. Our principal result is the direct observation of the bifurcation at the origin of the localization process in the material. At the bifurcation, the shear band is spatially extended: we observe a breaking of symmetry without any sudden localization of the deformation in a narrow band. Our work thus allows to clearly distinguish different phenomena: bifurcation which is a

A new convex optimization framework is developed for the route flow estimation problem from the fusion of vehicle count and cellular network data. The issue of highly underdetermined link flow based methods in transportation networks is investigated, then solved using the proposed concept of cellpaths for cellular network data. With this data-driven approach, our proposed approach is versatile: it is compatible with other data sources, and it is model agnostic and thus compatible with user

Using a dimensionality reduction scheme, we design a projected gradient algorithm suitable for the proposed route flow estimation problem. The algorithm solves a block isotonic regression problem in the projection step in linear time. The accuracy, computational efficiency, and versatility of the proposed approach are validated on the I-210 corridor near Los Angeles, where we achieve 90% route flow accuracy with 1033 traffic sensors and 1000 cellular towers covering a large network of highways and arterials with more than 20,000 links. In contrast to long-term land use planning applications, we demonstrate the first system to our knowledge that can produce route-level flow estimates suitable for short time horizon prediction and control applications in traffic management. Our system is open source and available for validation and extension.
