Most existing techniques for keyword search in structured peer-to-peer (P2P) networks only support single-keyword exact-match lookups. In practice, however, users often have fuzzy information for identifying these items and tend to submit broad queries. The support of searching based on multiple keywords is hence desirable. In multiple-keyword search, a data item is associated with multiple keywords for storage. A query ...

  • SPINE at Work

    This chapter provides a quick yet effective reference for body sensor network (BSN) programmers interested in developing their applications using the Signal Processing In‐Node Environment (SPINE) framework. It gives the necessary information for setting up the SPINE environment so to start programming as well as insights on how the framework itself can be customized and extended. The SPINE framework has two main components: sensor node side and server side. The core framework is now organized into three main parts, namely the communication, the sensing, and the processing parts. The SPINE framework provides, on the server side, simple Java APIs to develop applications on the coordinator. Therefore, the main strength of the SPINE framework allows users to be ready to develop applications in sensor networks without bothering with node‐side programming. The chapter further concentrates on the TinyOS port of SPINE2.

  • Central Nervous System Tissue Engineering: Current Considerations and Strategies

    Combating neural degeneration from injury or disease is extremely difficult in the brain and spinal cord, i.e. central nervous system (CNS). Unlike the peripheral nerves, CNS neurons are bombarded by physical and chemical restrictions that prevent proper healing and restoration of function. The CNS is vital to bodily function, and loss of any part of it can severely and permanently alter a person's quality of life. Tissue engineering could offer much needed solutions to regenerate or replace damaged CNS tissue. This review will discuss current CNS tissue engineering approaches integrating scaffolds, cells and stimulation techniques. Hydrogels are commonly used CNS tissue engineering scaffolds to stimulate and enhance regeneration, but fiber meshes and other porous structures show specific utility depending on application. CNS relevant cell sources have focused on implantation of exogenous cells or stimulation of endogenous populations. Somatic cells of the CNS are rarely utilized for tissue engineering; however, glial cells of the peripheral nervous system (PNS) may be used to myelinate and protect spinal cord damage. Pluripotent and multipotent stem cells offer alternative cell sources due to continuing advancements in identification and differentiation of these cells. Finally, physical, chemical, and electrical guidance cues are extremely important to neural cells, serving important roles in development and adulthood. These guidance cues are being integrated into tissue engineering approaches. Of particular interest is the inclusion of cues to guide stem cells to differentiate into CNS cell types, as well to guide neuron targeting. This review should provide the reader with a broad understanding of CNS tissue engineering challenges and tactics, with the goal of fostering the future development of biologically inspired designs.

  • Signal Processing In‐Node Environment

    This chapter presents Signal Processing In‐Node Environment (SPINE), a domain‐specific programming framework. SPINE enables efficient implementations of signal‐processing algorithms for analysis and classification of sensor data through libraries of processing functionalities. The SPINE Node consists of four main components: Sensor Node Manager, which handles the interactions among the Sensing Management, Signal Processing, and Communication modules; it dispatches the requests from the remote coordinator to the appropriate module. The chapter describes the software architecture of SPINE, its High‐Level Data Processing module, and discusses its heterogeneous support of sensor and coordinator device platforms. SPINE provides a Java‐based emulation environment that virtualizes generic sensor nodes. With this tool, it is possible to emulate a SPINE‐based body sensor network (BSN), provided that a dataset is available for each node. SPINE enables a great degree of heterogeneity: a wide variety of hardware platforms, sensors, programming languages, and operating systems are supported.

  • SPINE‐Based Body Sensor Network Applications

    This chapter emphasizes how the signal processing in‐node environment (SPINE) framework is able to support the development of heterogeneous health‐care applications based on reusable subsystems. It introduces some interesting research body sensor networks (BSN) systems that have been developed atop SPINE. The chapter presents a wearable system programmed atop SPINE that uses time domain heart rate variability (HRV) analysis to detect mental stress. It also introduces a SPINE‐based mobile system that recognizes in real time basic emotional responses and in particular the cardiac defense response (CDR), which is triggered before the fear emotion itself. The chapter demonstrates the flexibility of SPINE by describing five different case studies (physical activity detection, step counting, emotional stress detection, handshake detection, and physical rehabilitation), which all exploit the same sensor node hardware and software. It describes an innovative step‐counter algorithm that has been integrated into SPINE‐based activity recognition application as an optionally activated functionality.

  • Collaborative Body Sensor Networks

    This chapter presents a reference architecture for collaborative body sensor networks (CBSN) applications, thus enabling interactions among single BSNs. The need for a CBSN infrastructure can be better motivated by the fact that it is capable of easily enabling new services allowing single BSNs to interact with each other. The proposed reference architecture for supporting a CBSN infrastructure can be described under two different perspectives, the networking perspective and the functional perspective. The inter‐BSN interaction is enabled by some application‐specific protocols, which support the collaboration among high‐level applications and services running on each CBSN. The chapter also describes a new programming framework, collaborative signal processing in‐node environment (C‐SPINE), specifically designed to fully implement the proposed CBSN architecture. C‐SPINE is composed of the following modules to support the collaborative functionalities of the applications: inter‐CBSN communication; BSN proximity detection; BSN service discovery; BSN service selection and activation; and application‐specific protocols and services.

  • Integration of Body Sensor Networks and Building Networks

    This chapter provides a research‐ and technical‐oriented perspective on the integration of body sensor networks (BSNs) and Building Networks (BNs), which are based on wireless sensor and actuator networks (WSANs). This integration enables the construction of human‐centered smart environments ranging from smart buildings to fully automated ambient‐assisted living contexts. The chapter provides some fundamentals on BNs, and presents the motivations and challenges related to BSN/BN integration. It defines the integration layers according to networking‐based approach. The chapter compares the state‐of‐the‐art about BSN/ wireless sensor network (WSN) integration with respect to the defined layers. It also presents agent‐oriented gateway for integration of BSNs, based on Signal Processing In‐Node Environment (SPINE), and BNs, based on the Building Management Framework. The chapter explains a set of diverse human‐centered smart environments that can be supported through the proposed gateway and through BSN/WSN integration. Physical activity recognition is a fundamental building block of BSN application.

  • Development Methodology for BSN Systems

    This chapter describes a development methodology for body sensor network (BSN) systems, based on the Signal Processing In‐Node Environment (SPINE) framework, that follows a hybrid hardware-software codesign approach inspired to the platform‐based design (PBD). PBD has been originally introduced as a methodology for the design of traditional embedded systems and more recently for wireless sensor networks (WSNs). This methodology defines the design as a sequence of steps that lead from the initial high‐level system description down to the actual implementation. Since each application requires different sets of functions, the constraints identify different (embedded) platforms, where more advanced applications yield to harder architectural constraints. The SPINE‐based Design Methodology (SPINE‐based DM) is inspired by the well‐known PBD. The application‐level design of a SPINE‐based BSN application can be guided by pattern‐driven strategies. The chapter discloses the main parameters affecting BSN‐based applications. It illustrates the SPINE‐based Platform Design process schema.

  • Cells and Biomaterials for Intervertebral Disc Regeneration

    Disorders related to the intervertebral disc (IVD) are common causes of morbidity and of severe life quality deterioration. IVD degeneration, although in many cases asymptomatic, is often the origin of painful neck and back diseases. In Western societies IVD related pain and disability account for enormous health care costs as a result of work absenteeism and thus lost production, disability benefits, medical and insurance expenses. Although only a small percentage of patients with disc disorders finally will undergo surgery, spinal surgery has been one of the fastest growing disciplines in the musculoskeletal field in recent years. Nevertheless, current treatment options are still a matter of controversial discussion. In particular, they hardly can restore normal spine biomechanics and prevent degeneration of adjacent tissues. While degeneration affects all areas of the IVD, the most constant and noticeable changes occur in the gel-like central part, the nucleus pulposus (NP). Recent emphasis has therefore been put in biological ways to regenerate the NP; however, there are a number of obstacles to overcome, considering the exceptional biological and biomechanical environment of this tissue. Different biological approaches such as molecular, gene, and cell based therapies have been investigated and have shown promising results in both in vitro and in vivo studies. Nonetheless, considerable hurdles still exist in their application for IVD regeneration in human patients. The choice of the cells and the choice of the cell carrier suitable for implantation pose major challenges for research and development activities. This lecture recapitulates the basics of IVD structure, function, and degeneration mechanisms. The first part reviews the recent progress in the field of disc and stem cell based regenerative approaches. In the second part, most appropriate biomaterials that have been evaluated as cell or molecule carrier to cope with degenerative disc disease are outlin d. The potential and limitations of cell- and biomaterial-based treatment strategies and perspectives for future clinical applications are discussed.
