Whitepaper: Physical Posters as Gateways to Context-Aware Services for Mobile Devices

by Ludwig-Maximilians-Universitat MunchenJan 01, 2008

One gets to know the usage of physical posters as gateways to mobile services that are related to advertisements and information presented on these posters. The aim is to create a system that allows seamless and natural interaction of users with posters. The work is based on a requirements analysis. The placement and physical accessibility of posters and the behavior of people waiting in public places were investigated.

Whitepaper: SEDAM: SErvice Discovery in MANETs Exploiting Asymmetric Mobility Patterns

by Ludwig-Maximilians-Universitat MunchenJan 01, 2008

Recently, a lot of new service discovery mechanisms have been elaborated to cope with the special constraints of mobile ad-hoc environments: memory is scarce, connections are often very unreliable and networks do not offer any specified infrastructure. Service discovery in mobile ad-hoc environments is not efficient with static directory services. This research paper from University of Munich shows that under certain conditions, by exploiting static properties of services found in a MANET, service discovery can be fairly optimized. Examples for such static properties can be the IP-address or the location coordinates of a device.
