  • Introduction

    The dedicated short-range communication (DSRC) protocol is one of short-range wireless protocols, which is specifically designed for vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) and vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) communications to enhance the safety and productivity of the transportation system, which is also referred to as an intelligent transportation system (ITS). In vehicular ad hoc networks (VANETs), roadside units (RSUs) can provide assistance in finding a facility such as a restaurant or gas station, and broadcast traffic-related messages such as maximum curve turning speed notifications to give drivers a heads-up. VANETs open up new avenues to create conveniences and safer lifestyles. In order to protect VANET against security and privacy threats, the security mechanisms employed in VANETs should satisfy the following security requirements: authentication, integrity, nonrepudiation, access control and privacy. The following security primitives help securing VANET: primitives for confidentiality, primitives for data integrity and authentication, primitives for nonrepudiation and primitives for privacy.

  • Traditional Farming

    While the transition from foraging to farming cannot be explained solely by energetic imperatives, the evolution of agriculture can be seen as a continuing effort to raise land productivity (to increase digestible energy yield) in order to accommodate larger populations.

  • Sharing and Reuse in Knowledge Discovery

    This chapter explains why the reuse and shareability of all the types of components that are used in knowledge discovery processes can be useful to improve efficiency and productivity. It illustrates the variety of descriptions that are needed for processing elements - this would be extended to functions and types. This metadata is organized as libraries of components. The chapter also shows that these descriptions can be layered according to different types of vocabularies, which focus on different aspects of the description of components. Data analysis ontologies are domain-independent vocabularies that support the broad description of the data analysis tasks undertaken in the knowledge discovery process. Finally, domain ontologies are one of the most important types of ontologies to be considered in this effort to support shareability and reusability of processing elements, functions, and types.

  • Engineering and Economics Concepts for Understanding Software Process Performance

    This chapter presents the engineering (and management) perspective of a production process. From an engineering perspective, a production process is more complex, and must also include a monitoring and control process. The chapter outlines some simple quantitative models of processes. It introduces some quantitative models using economics concepts, such as fixed/variable costs and economies/diseconomies of scale. The chapter discusses some characteristics of software engineering datasets and their data distribution. It also discusses the different types of data distribution observed in the datasets documented in the software engineering literature, as well as in the datasets available in public domain repositories. The chapter highlights the explicit and implicit variables in productivity models. Most of the variables that are significantly different in the datasets of projects from multiple organizations were, in practice, fixed in this development environment. The chapter also presents the possibility of multiple economic models within the same dataset.

  • Data Quality and Standards

    This chapter explains the role of data standards for the success of any DaaS program and provides an overview of how to ensure that the quality of data published by enterprise data services is suitable and fit for public consumption. It provides details on how use of data discovery and profiling tools can be useful for organizations in assessing the quality of data received from incoming data sources. The benefits of introducing new data quality standards and significant productivity benefits and cost savings need to be communicated across the organization regularly. Data profiling tools help to conduct a physical assessment at the outset of publishing a data service. Most organizations use data profiling tools to assess how good the quality of data is in legacy systems storing pieces of current enterprise data. The chapter presents the benefits of using a metrics-driven approach to improve the quality of a data service.

  • Building Control and Automation Systems

    In industrialized societies, the comfort and productivity of people are influenced substantially by the quality of automation and control provided in the buildings in which they live and work. Accordingly, the history of building automation and control shows steady progress in complexity and capability. The first generation of systems used localized, stand-alone pneumatic controls. A major development in the 1950s, driven by the development of pneumatic sensor transmitters and receiver controllers, was pneumatic centralization. Electromechanical multiplexing systems, introduced in the 1960s, substantially reduced installation and maintenance costs and enabled automatic control of air-handling units for the first time. Minicomputers and programmable logic controllers (PLCs) became popular after the oil crisis in 1973 and helped spur the development of energy management systems. Today, the personal computer has revolutionized building control systems. Heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning (HVAC), lighting, elevators and escalators, and fire and security can now be integrated within one building automation system. In terms of basic control technologies, the PID controller remains dominant, especially for HVAC systems. PLCs are widely used for event-driven and sequencing operations such as start-up of chillers. With the maturing of local area network technologies and their widespread deployment for building automation, digital control loops can now be implemented throughout buildings. The infrastructure is available for implementing advanced algorithms. Much of this advanced technology is inspired by developments in artificial intelligence. Expert systems, neural networks, and fuzzy logic have all been used for some building control applications. (Tutorials on these methods can be found in Chapter 5.) Finally, the availability of inexpensive cameras and high-speed image processing electronics is permitting the use of vision-based sensing in building automation (and also in other fields-see Chapter 18 for a discussion of visual servoing in robotics). This could be used, for example, to estimate the number of residents within an air-conditioned space and regulate accordingly in response to ad hoc changes in the air-conditioned environment and to conserve energy.

  • Global Variables in Logic Programming

    We show that adding global variables to logic programming can solve some common problems of reliability and programmer productivity in large logic programs. By presenting a formal semantics for logic programs with global variables, we show that this addition retains a clean semantics. This addition has the consequences that conjunction is neither commutative nor absorptive, but we show that the practical loss is small. We also describe an implementation of Prolog with global variables as a translator to ordinary Prolog which preserves the efficiency of the Prolog program, while statically detecting some programming errors, and avoiding others altogether.
