    Scalable Video Coding, in particular H.264/SVC, is regarded as a promising candidate to enable applications to cope with dynamically varying network conditions and with heterogeneous usage environments, mainly diverse end device capabilities and constraints. The MMC Research Group has for some time investigated the adaptation of SVC content directly in the network, i.e., by Media Aware Network Ele... View full abstract»

    This paper introduces the idea of a driving system that will educate the driver in energy-efficient and safe driving, as there is potential in the individual driving behaviour to save energy and drive safely. Different energy-efficient or safety-relevant driving systems are analysed and improvement possibilities are presented. The new driving system will use serial-bus systems of the car and senso...

    The JPEG architectures in literature do not implement many features defined in the standard, useful in several wireless applications, such as noise protection, components management and the possibility to change a lot of encoder parameters. The addition of these features alters the computational cost of the encoder, and this could lead to problems when the power consumption is a primary concern. I... View full abstract»

    Many-core Graphics Processing Units (GPU) provide a high-performance parallel hardware platform on the desktop at an incredibly low cost. However, the widespread use of this computational capacity is hindered by the fact that programming GPUs is difficult. The state-of-the-art is to develop code utilizing the NVIDIA Compute Unified Device Architecture (CUDA). However, effective use of CUDA require... View full abstract»

    Wireless networks are an emerging technology which are employed for a growing number of applications. Maintenance and extensibility necessitate software updates after an initial deployment. Wireless updates are in most cases preferred, e.g. in large-scale networks or inaccessible deployments. Recent research either focused on reliable and fast transmission of a new firmware, or on a modular update... View full abstract»

    A main cost factor of the electronics in modern cars is the harness as well as the number and complexity of gateways between the different automotive networks. Part of the vision “All IP/Ethernet Car” is the reduction of this costs. Today cars use different networks for power distribution and communication. With Ethernet it is possible to combine these networks and thus to reduce the... View full abstract»

    Wireless Sensor Network technologies are maturing into industrial applicability, but the availability of broadly supported architectures and integration of existing standards is still lagging behind. As a proposal to ameliorate this situation, we consider the OMG Data Distribution Service (DDS), a middleware standard for interoperable data-centric publish/subscribe architectures with real-time cap...

    In this work, we show how to use a leaky bucket counter (LBC) as a sophisticated threshold mechanism for detecting events in wireless sensor networks. After introducing the LBC and elaborating on various special cases for different possibilities of event detection, we present a case study. Using varying parameters, we compare the performance of the LBC approach to that of a moving average approach... View full abstract»

    Removing faults in the software of embedded systems, after deployment, is at least expensive because of the required actions like calling back cars to workshops in order to perform a software update. Therefore verification and validation techniques are especially important in the embedded system domain. Mutation testing is a method for evaluating test suites of programs via injecting faults and ch... View full abstract»

    Software integration testing is often a bottleneck in the development process. Selecting the next component to integrate often depends heavily on integrators expertise or solely on the integration schedule. This may lead to an increasing number of stubs and makes testing more difficult. In this work we present a novel metric to calculate the test complexity of a certain integration order and provi...

    Safety systems in the automotive field were developed separately for a long time. Nowadays active and passive safety systems are networked, exchange information and rely on each other. This leads to an increasing complexity of the communication channels and numerous control unit functions and variants. Therefore the development and test process is getting more and more complex and unmanageable. Al... View full abstract»

    In this paper, we compare two different evolvable controller models based on their performance for a simple robotic problem, where a robot has to find a light source using two luminance sensors. The first controller is a fully meshed artificial neural network. Though neural networks are the most common type of controllers used in evolutionary robotics, validating and understanding the resulting ne... View full abstract»

    We evaluate the performance of several routing protocols for mobile ad-hoc networks (MANETs) in an emergency response scenario. The simulated scenario uses a disaster area mobility model and a wireless shadowing model to represent realistic first responder movements in a hybrid indoor/outdoor environment. The resulting scenario imposes some challenges on the MANET routing protocols such as intermi... View full abstract»
