Side-Channel Sensing: Exploiting Side-Channels to Extract Information for Medical Diagnostics and Monitoring
Abstract Information within systems can be extracted through side-channels; unintended communication channels that leak information. The concept of side-channel sensing is explored, in which sensor data is analysed in non-trivial ways to recover subtle, hidden or unexpected information. Practical examples... Read more

Compliant Prosthetic Wrists Entail More Natural Use Than Stiff Wrists During Reaching, Not (Necessarily) During Manipulation
    Developing an artificial arm with functions equivalent to those of the human arm is one of the challenging goals of bioengineering. State-of-the-art prostheses lack several degrees of freedom and force the individuals to compensate for them by means of compensatory... Read more

State Estimation for Discrete Time-Delayed Genetic Regulatory Networks With Stochastic Noises Under the Round-Robin Protocols
This paper investigates the problem of state estimation for discrete time-delayed genetic regulatory networks with stochastic process noises and bounded exogenous disturbances under the Round-Robin (RR) protocols. The network measurement outputs obtained by two groups of sensors are transmitted to... Read more
