Type-2 Fuzzy Rule-Based Model of Urban Metro Positioning Service
In the last few years there has been a growing interest in route building oriented mobile applications with the following features of navigation and sending timely notifications about arrival. Despite the large body of existing knowledge on navigational services, there has been an important issue relative to positioning accuracy. The paper discusses a possible solution to comparison problem, which is linked to the determination of the closeness to destination metro station through finding a difference between user’s current coordinates and fixed-point coordinates. With this end in view, fuzzy logic approach is used to develop Routes Recommender System (RRS) that utilizes linguistic variables to express the vague and uncertain term ‘closeness to…’. The paper provides detailed explanation of each variable considered in the fuzzy inference system (FIS), set of fuzzy rules in line with graphical representation of system’s output. Based on Mamdani model, we propose a set of test cases to check maintainability of the model and provide a description about received results. At a later time, an Android-based mobile application aimed at public transport route building will be developed whose notification system will be based on our model`s implementation presented. It should be emphasized that the paper examines potentials of the modeling approach based on interval type-2 fuzzy sets (IT2FS) that attract much attention these days in various research studies and conventional Mamdani fuzzy inference system (MFIS) as applied to real and rather topical problem. The significance of developing such models may be of a high demand for appropriate representation of factors that are inherently vague and uncertain. Hence, this study may also contribute to future research on similar topics.
Implementation of IT and program projects seems to be very complicated and taught process, associated with many uncertainties and risks. Sure, this does not mean the rejection of such projects, supposed the more responsibility for the decision making process of new information technologies implementation. To manage various problems which face project managers, it makes sense to use special risk management software. The functionality of modern risk management systems allows identifying risk occurrence, conducting scenario modeling, take the more appropriate managing decisions based on scenario analysis and mathematical calculations. All these functionality will support project manager to optimize his business activities in accordance to risk management practices and ensure better coordination and balance inside the project team. Currently there available a wide range of project management software, but it is reasonable to conduct some analysis in terms of applicability to specific IT projects. The author will review the most appropriate software solutions for the risk management in IT area, conduct competitive analysis and provide some recommendations on software selection.
This paper overviews and analyzes existing technologies for creation the three-dimensional spherical panoramic images and their visualization via mobile device using virtual reality (VR)-glasses. The goal is to design a new application for recording and processing panoramic images with a further adaptation for VR-visualization. The description maintains methods that are used for app-development.
Into the Red explores the emergence of a credit card market in post-Soviet Russia during the formative period from 1988 to 2007. In her analysis, Alya Guseva locates the dynamics of market building in the social structure, specifically the creative use of social networks. Until now, network scholars have overlooked the role that networks play in facilitating exchange in mass markets because they have exclusively focused on firm-to-firm or person-to-person ties. Into the Reddemonstrates how networks that combine individuals and organizations help to build markets for mass consumption. The book is situated on the cutting edge of emerging interdisciplinary research, linking multiple layers of analysis with institutional evolution. Using an intricate framework, Guseva chronicles both the creation of a credit card market and the making of a mass consumer. These processes are placed in the context of the ongoing restructuring in postcommunist Russia and the expansion of Western markets and ideologies through the rest of the world.
Supply chain management is rather new scientific field that reflects the concept of integrated business planning. This concept should be experts and practitioners in logistics and strategic management. Today, integrated planning to become a reality thanks to the development of information technology and computer technology. At the same time to achieve a competitive advantage is not enough high-speed, low-cost data transfer process. In order to effectively apply information technology tools necessary to develop a quantitative analysis of the effectiveness of supply chain management. The mam element of this tool are optimization models that reveal the complex interactions, the wave and the synergies that arise in supply chain management. In this article we consider one of the classes of such models - the so-called dynamic models of conveyor systems, processing of applications.
The paper focuses on the concept of ‘financial strategies’ and addresses two problems: first, how to define the concepts of financial strategy and strategizing, and second, how to operationalize them into indicators for empirical research. The introduction to this new concept is based on the conviction that strategizing (which is understood as a specific attitude to life held by people who do not live for the moment, think about their future even if it is rather uncertain, set long-term financial goals and act towards achieving them), is an intrinsic factor in the financial behavior of people. It is argued that it is not possible to define financial strategy or to operationalize it objectively and universally since people operate in very different circumstances; i.e. in different institutional environments or at different stages of life, etc. The solution must be found in the interactionist sociological perspective with the emphasis on the construction of the interpretation of a situation: how individuals themselves make sense of financial strategizing in their own environment, the options they perceive and the constraints they feel.
Many electronic devices operate in a cyclic mode. This should be considered when forecastingreliability indicators at the design stage.The accuracy of the prediction and the planning for the event to ensure reliability depends on correctness of valuation and accounting greatest possiblenumber of factors. That in turn will affect the overall progress of the design and, in the end,result in the quality and competitiveness of products
Let G be a semisimple algebraic group whose decomposition into the product of simple components does not contain simple groups of type A, and P⊆G be a parabolic subgroup. Extending the results of Popov , we enumerate all triples (G, P, n) such that (a) there exists an open G-orbit on the multiple flag variety G/P × G/P × . . . × G/P (n factors), (b) the number of G-orbits on the multiple flag variety is finite.
