  • A new object recognition system for service robots in the smart environment

    This paper describes a new object recognition system for service robots in a smart environment full of RFID tags and connected by wireless networks. Object recognition is one of the basic functionalities a service robot should perform and many researchers have attempted to make the service robot recognize objects through vision processing in natural environments. However there is no conventional vision system that can recognize target objects robustly in a real-world workspace. In our smart environment, flexibility and robustness in object recognition are provided with the help of RFID tags and communication networks. RFID tags provide the presence and identity information of the object and the robot can recognize the object through vision processing based on a detected RFID code and downloaded visual descriptor information. For feature descriptors, we adopted MPEG-7 visual descriptors due to its concise and unambiguous description of the complex media contents. This paper focuses on developing our object recognition engine based on visual descriptors information in the smart environment. To this end, we propose a new object recognition architecture for service robots, and present a implemented matching algorithm on the basis of MPEG-7 visual descriptors such as color and texture. Experimental results show that the proposed system works well with good performance in terms of recognition rate. This object recognition system will be incorporated into our service robot platform and a pose estimation module is to be included in the next version of our object recognition system.

  • An intelligent navigation method for service robots in the smart environment

    Autonomous navigation is one of primitive functionalities which service robots should have; nevertheless, the navigation problem for a service robot still has many difficulties because the real environment where service robots should works is so complex and dynamical. This paper proposes a framework of intelligent navigation for service robots based on a semantic map of the smart environment. In the smart environment, the robot can receive his position information from location sensors by sensor networks, and it can eliminate the accumulated localization errors. So the robot can accomplish confidential localization in the dynamic and complex environment. With the topological information in the semantic map, path planning problem can be simple even in the wide and complex spaces, and topological path from semantic map can be divided into several sub goals. Robust navigation can be accomplished by moving towards these sub goals with reactive navigation algorithm which has robust characteristics in the dynamic environments. Our approaches have ascertained the good performance on the localization and the navigation, and the feasibility of these methods could be confirmed with the result of experiments in the real environment.

  • Fuzzy position based routing in clustered wireless sensor network for smart environment

    Clustering is a good method to increase WSN lifetime and particularly for smart environment. In this paper, we present fuzzy position based routing for clustered sensor network. It is very useful for the smart environment applications of wireless sensor network without GPS support. The destinations could be located with ambiguous position vectors, and the long time and energy consumption of requesting/replying for node ID in traditional routing of sensor-actor network is avoided. The results of simulation using SHAWN show that in the fuzzy position based routing, if the destination range is more precise, the average delay and energy consumption are more reduced.

  • Optimization of spectrum sensing for cognitive sensor network using differential evolution approach in smart environment

    The spectrum congestion due to the static spectrum allocation scheme in wireless communication had been an issue for decade. Despite the rapid growth of wireless communications, the emerging of Internet of Things to transform everyday objects into smart objects which are capable to communicate with each other wirelessly in a smart environment have/had further increase the spectrum demand. In this paper, cognitive sensor network had been proposed to handle the loophole in the spectrum intelligently via spectrum sensing. In order to achieve a reliable spectrum sensing, an optimization scheme with fast convergence speed has been employed to optimize the sensing performance. The parameters of differential evolution have been set for solving the optimization problem in spectrum sensing for cognitive sensor network. The spectrum sensing formulation in cognitive sensor network has been modeled in MATLAB, and the optimization has been simulated using the differential evolution algorithm. The simulation result has shown that optimization using differential evolution approach has significantly increased the sensing performance which is an essential criterion for CSN which comply of many smart sensors that connect to each other wirelessly.

  • Monitoring pollution: Applying IoT to create a smart environment

    Air quality has been negatively affected by industrial activities, which have caused imbalances in nature. The issue of air pollution has become a big concern for many people, especially those living in industrial areas. Air pollution levels can be measured using smart sensors. Additionally, Internet of Things (IoT) technology can be integrated to remotely detect pollution without any human interaction. The data gathered by such a system can be transmitted instantly to a web-based application to facilitate monitoring real time data and allow immediate risk management. In this paper, we describe an entire Internet of Things (IoT) system that monitors air pollution by collecting real-time data in specific locations. This data is analyzed and measured against a predetermined threshold. The collected data is sent to the concerned official organization to notify them in case of any violation so that they can take the necessary measures. Furthermore, if the value of the measured pollutants exceeds the threshold, an alarm system is triggered taking several actions to warn the surrounding people.

  • Knowledge Discovery in Entity Based Smart Environment Resident Data Using Temporal Relation Based Data Mining

    Time is an important aspect of all real world phenomena.

Our use of temporal relations in the context of smart environment tasks is described and our methodology for mining such relations from raw sensor data is introduced. We demonstrate how the results are enhanced by identifying the number of individuals in an environment, and apply the resulting technologies to look for interesting patterns which play a vital role to predict activities and identify anomalies in a physical smart environment.

  • Squareknot: A Flexible Framework for Actuators and Controllers in Smart Environment

    To operate actuators (e.g., robots) with a certain controller in smart environment, it requires some programming for connecting between them. However, such programming without any structure often causes the system with the lack of extensibility and flexibility. In this paper, we show an implementation of the programming framework, called Squarekno t, for connecting between controllers and actuators based on MAC (Mapping between Actuators and Controllers) model. It provides the modularized structure to add new actuators and controllers in the environment easily. It also gives flexibility in customizing the operability for the actuators with the con troller.

  • Context management for response to traffic accident in smart environment

    A decision support system intended to operate in a smart environment is proposed.

The system implements technologies of context management, Web-services, and software agents. An example of action planning for responding to a traffic accident happened in a smart environment is used for illustration of the system proposed.
