EasiBridge: A generic web-enabled service-based middleware for heterogeneous wireless sensor network

Su-Lim Tan; Yan-Lin Seah 2010 2nd International Conference on Education Technology and Computer, 2010

Wireless sensor networks (WSN) are getting increasingly attractive as a means to bridge between the physical and the virtual world. The current trends in communication see vast advances in wireless connectivity, leading to dynamic and complicated systems on top of which applications must be built. The task of designing these applications with such systems thus becomes much more complex. One ...

Collaborative Service Enhancement in Intelligent Environments: Service Delivery from User Terminals to Infrastructure Devices

F. Quinoy-Garcia; E. Costa-Montenegro; F. J. Gonzalez-Castano; F. Gil-Castineira 2010 7th IEEE Consumer Communications and Networking Conference, 2010

We present a service model that allows terminals to extend their capabilities by delivering services to intelligent infrastructures. For example, a terminal may deliver a pack containing a visualization application and a file to an infrastructure screen. We also present a variant where a user can invite other users to access a shared service on the infrastructure, from other terminals.


Evaluation of IP Fast Reroute Proposals

Minas Gjoka; Vinayak Ram; Xiaowei Yang 2007 2nd International Conference on Communication Systems Software and Middleware, 2007

With the increasing demand for low-latency applications in the Internet, the slow convergence of the existing routing protocols is a growing concern. A number of IP fast reroute mechanisms have been developed by the IETF to address the issue. The goal of the IPFRR mechanisms is to activate alternate routing paths which avoid micro loops under node or link failures. ...

  • An Object-Based Approach to Map Human Hand Synergies onto Robotic Hands with Dissimilar Kinematics

    Robotic hands differ in kinematics, dynamics, programming, control and sensing frameworks. Borrowing the terminology from software engineering, there is a need for middleware solutions to control the robotic hands independently from their specific structure, and focusing only on the task. Results in neuroscience concerning the synergistic organization of the human hand, are the theoretical foundation of this work, which focuses on the problem of mapping human hand synergies on robotic hands with dissimilar kinematic structures. The proposed mapping is based on the use of a virtual ellipsoid and it is mediated by a model of an anthropomorphic robotic hand able to capture the idea of synergies in human hands. This approach has been tested in two different robotic hands with an anthropomorphic and non-anthropomorphic kinematic structure.

  • Architecture

    Software architecture is the body of instructions, written in a specific coding language, that controls the structure and interactions of software modules. It embodies the structure of a system and provides the framework for the software modules to perform the functions of the system. The design of the interfaces between modules and the constraints on the size and execution of the modules affects the ease with which they can be integrated into a working software system. The architecture of a system enforces constraints on the modules and the properties of capacity, throughput, consistency and module compatibility are realized at the architectural level. * Architecture Is a System's DNA * Pity the Poor System Administrator * Software Architecture Experience * Process and Model * Components * Components as COTS * Encapsulation and Abstraction * Ready or Not, Objects Are Here * UNIX * TL1 * Mission * Comparative Analysis * Message Formatting * TL1 Message Formulation * Industry Support of TL1 * Documenting the Architecture * Diary or Log Document * Debriefing Document * Users of Architecture Documentation * Architecture Reviews * Middleware * How Many Times Before We Learn? * Comair Cancels 1,100 Flights on Christmas 2004 * Air Traffic Shutdown in September 2004 * NASA Misses Mars, 2004 * Case Study: The Case of the Preempt ed Priorities * Financial Systems Architecture * Typical Business Processes * Product-Related Layer in the Architecture * Finding Simple Components * Design and Architectural Process * Additonal Problems

  • SA Forum Programming Model and API Conventions

    Our society increasingly depends on computer-based systems; the number of applications deployed has increased dramatically in recent years and this trend is accelerating. Many of these applications are expected to provide their services continuously. The Service Availability Forum has recognized this need and developed a set of specifications to help software designers and developers to focus on the value added function of applications, leaving the availability management functions for the middleware. A practical and informative reference for the Service Availability Forum specifications, this book gives a cohesive explanation of the founding principles, motivation behind the design of the specifications, and the solutions, usage scenarios and limitations that a final system may have. Avoiding complex mathematical explanations, the book takes a pragmatic approach by discussing issues that are as close as possible to the daily software design/development by practitioners, and yet at a level that still takes in the overall picture. As a result, practitioners will be able to use the specifications as intended. * Takes a practical approach, giving guidance on the use of the specifications to explain the architecture, redundancy models and dependencies of the Service Availability (SA) Forum services * Explains how service availability provides fault tolerance at the service level * Clarifies how the SA Forum solution is supported by open source implementations of the middleware * Includes fragments of code, simple example and use cases to give readers a practical understanding of the topic * Provides a stepping stone for applications and system designers, developers and advanced students to help them understand and use the specifications
