P2P4RFID

Rather than using a hierachical approach to resolve RFIDs indentification code to database information this project researches in using Peer-to-Peer technology. The project showed that privacy of information can be better ensured and higher reliability can be gained using such an approach. A query, which consists of an identification string, is sent to the network more…

ParticleBasic

ParticleBasic is an attempt to simplify the programming model of the Particle Computer and enable rapid prototyping of applications. It therefore consists of two major components: A small scale VM on the Particle Computer and an interpreter running on top of it. A compiler for the development platform (written in JAVA) that generates byte code more…

In/Out Board

The In/Out Board is an ambient display showing the presence of persons in an office environment based on their activity. It integrates recognition of persons using RFID technology and PC based background services with an ambient display.   Start/End: 2004 Partners: SAP AG Research Topics: RFID system, Integration of information infrastructure Application and economic dissemination: more…

SENSORAUM

In sensor networks, different types of sensors are used to capture events, recognize contexts, derive states of objects or monitor processes within application scenarios. The processes themselves are often very complex (e.g. in industrial applications) and a combination of sensor data from different sensor nodes is used to derive information regarding their states or properties. more…

Superimposing RF Transmission

Superimposing codes can be used for a variety of applications in sensor network communication. One of the earliest applications was precise time synchronization of sensor nodes and channel access negotiation in AwareCon. More advances applications are using superimposed codes for ultra-fast ultra power-saving transmission of information – up to 1000 times faster than with traditional more…

Dazu sollen billige RFID-Tags mit gedruckten Antennen an jedem einzelnen Produkt angebracht werden. Durch Optimierungen der Kommunikationsprotokolle und mobile more…

MoSe (Modeling of Sensor Network)

With the progress of wireless sensor network (WSN), this emerging technique is soon applied in many industrial projects. However, a standard to describe the security level in WSN is still lacking, which becomes very needful today. In MoSe Project we try to build a formal model to describe the security level of sensor network and more…

P2P4Ubicomp

P2P4Ubicomp researches how to interconnect various distributed sensor networks, what performance measures are important, what and how information are replicated among involved remote locations etc. The project researches this issues regarding integrating into Internet and Telco environments and builds up large, world-spanning environments. Many industrial applications rely on sensors and sensor networks residing on machinery, more…

OSOITE

OSOITE: Overlay-network Search Oriented for Information about Town Events. OSOITE researches collaboration mechanisms of independent large scale sensor networks and how to improve user interaction with sensor data. Generally speaking people are likely to search things related to their daily lives in the real world ranging from straight-forward queries to complex ones. In order to more…

Polytos

The objective of the research project Polytos is to develop printed organic circuits with integrated sensors capable of recording data such as temperature, humidity or light exposure. The deployment of these types of printed organic circuits for item-level-tagging in logistics or supply chain scenarios could be used as organic printed smart labels in the future. more…
