Broken Bar Fault Detection in IM Operating Under No-Load Condition, RELJIC, D., JERKAN, D., MARCETIC, D., OROS, D.
Issue 4/2016



With new technologies, such as mobile communications, internet of things, and wide applications of social media, organizations generate a huge volume of data, much faster than several years ago. Big data, characterized by high volume, diversity and velocity, increasingly drives decision making and is changing the landscape of business intelligence, from governments to private organizations, from communities to individuals. Big data analytics that discover insights from evidences has a high demand for computing efficiency, knowledge discovery, problem solving, and event prediction. We dedicate a special section of Issue 4/2017 to Big Data. Prospective authors are asked to make the submissions for this section no later than the 31st of May 2017, placing "Big Data - " before the paper title in OpenConf.

We have the confirmation Advances in Electrical and Computer Engineering will be included in the Gale database.

IoT is a new emerging technology domain which will be used to connect all objects through the Internet for remote sensing and control. IoT uses a combination of WSN (Wireless Sensor Network), M2M (Machine to Machine), robotics, wireless networking, Internet technologies, and Smart Devices. We dedicate a special section of Issue 2/2017 to IoT. Prospective authors are asked to make the submissions for this section no later than the 31st of March 2017, placing "IoT - " before the paper title in OpenConf.

The paper presents a number of results regarding the construction of specific overcomplete dictionaries for ECG compressed sensing (CS). The dictionaries were built using normal and patological cardiac patterns extracted from 24 recordings of the MIT-BIH Arrhythmia Database. It has been shown that the compression results obtained using the CS concept based on specific dictionaries are better that those using the wavelet overcomplete dictionaries. Starting from the concept of sparse signal with respect to a given overcomplete dictionary the paper present several results regarding the possibility of simple pattern classification as well.
