    Potential Z-Fighting Conflict Detection System in 3D Level Design Tools 

    Pisal Setthawong (2015)

    Z-Fighting is an effect that happens in 3D scenes when two co-planar surfaces share similar values in the z-buffer which leads to flicking and visual artifacts during the rendering process due to conflicting order of rendering the surface. However in 3D level design, scenes created by the tools can be complex, in which level designers can inadvertently place co-planar surfaces that would be susceptible to z-fighting. Level designers typically notice the z-fighting artifact through visual inspection through the usage of a 3D walkthrough t...

    The Effect of Transmission Range in Multi-hop Wireless Networks 

    Kunagorn Kunavut (2014)

    Transmission or communication range is an important factor for successful data delivery in wireless communications including multi-hop wireless networks. Typically, transmission range can be technically adjustable by configuring the transmitting power (Tx Power) or changing the antenna height. For the same antenna height, if transmission range is minimized or adjusted to be shorter by lowering Tx power, there is less energy consumption but the networks are likely to be unconnected which consequently degrades the network performance such...
