    A Java-Based Middleware for Control and Sensing in Mobile Robotics

    Many of the existing mobile-robot software packages do not include handling of sensors and actuators in a sufficiently systematic and uniform way, as described later in this section. The software framework proposed in this paper, denoted NAV2000, addresses the specific need for interchangeability of components in robotics. At the lowest...

    The Subpolitics of Online Piracy: A Swedish Case Study

    'Pirates' and 'Anti-pirates' have become common concepts in the cultural political debate, as the file sharing phenomenon is a delicate and disputed subject. The fact that people organize in networks to share data with each other has led film and music companies from all over the world to initiate a...

    From Products to Services in the Forestry Industry: ICT as an Enabler for Creating an Open Innovation System

    Most forestry machines being produced today include a PC that monitors and controls the harvester head, and an information system that stores data on every action the driver or the machine performs. ICT thus provides an opportunity to improve efficiency and competitiveness and possibly also opens up for new ways...

    Accounting and Billing for Federated Cloud Infrastructures

    Emerging Cloud computing infrastructures provide computing resources on demand based on postpaid principles. For example, the RESERVOIR project develops an infrastructure capable of delivering elastic capacity that can automatically be increased or decreased in order to cost-efficiently fulfill established Service Level Agreements. This infrastructure also makes it possible for a...

    Interaction Design for "Digital Djurpark"

    In this paper the possible interactions in a concept as "Digital Djurpark" are defined and discussed. The "Digital Djurpark" is based on a wireless sensor network containing of 100 sensors inside a zoo. With these sensors it will become possible to collect all kinds of different data and to present...

    Tangible Presence in Blended Reality Space

    The authors discuss issues relating to presence arising from the recent evolution of tangible interaction techniques as an alternative interaction paradigm to the familiar WIMP-based Graphical User Interfaces (GUIs). The intersection of sensory, cognitive and also emotional aspects in such interfaces takes them a significant step further than GUI techniques....

    Empowering a Flexible Application Portal With a SOA-Based Grid Job Management Framework

    The complexity of simultaneously providing customized user interfaces and transparent Grid access has led to a situation where current Grid portals tend to either be tightly coupled to specific middlewares or only provide generic user interfaces. In this paper, the authors build upon the methodology of the Grid Job Management...

    Business Intelligence: Multidimensional Data Analysis

    The relational database model is probably the most frequently used database model today. It has its strengths, but it doesn't perform very well with complex queries and analysis of very large sets of data. As computers have grown more potent, resulting in the possibility to store very large data volumes,...
