    The authors' experience in creating a robots community using standard hardware and software - the Windows CE operating system, XScale development boards, and LEGO Mindstorm actuators is described. The focus is an open and extendable distributed robotics system, which, in contrast to most existing proprietary robotics systems, supports cost-effective integration and assembly of components while pro...

    As hardware for robots is becoming widely available, better programming abstractions are needed to develop programs controlling robots. In the paper the Robotics4.NET, a framework to develop software aimed at controlling robots of different nature, is introduced. The whole framework is built around the notion of body, which is a software entity connecting the physical structure of the robot to the... View full abstract»

    The high availability of handheld devices with Bluetooth technology allows users to be located with sufficient precision for offering context-sensitive services. The authors present the design and implementation of a scalable architecture for indoor positioning based on Bluetooth sensors. Distance from sensors is estimated using inquiry reports issued at different cyclic power levels, while a cent... View full abstract»

    The Distributed Control Lab (DCL) provides an open infrastructure for conducting robotics and control experiments over the Internet. It is based on Web services technologies and offers a wide range of frontend applications. Within the DCL environment work is focused on safety strategies and mechanisms in order to prevent malicious code from damaging experimental equipment. These include source cod...

    The progress in computer and communication technologies is making the Internet increasingly heterogeneous in terms of network, hardware and software capacities. Moreover, resource availability on the Internet varies unexpectedly. Thus, providing an efficient access to multimedia services requires that multimedia streams be adapted according to the environment constraints. One approach to this issu... View full abstract»

    Present-day museums are not mere passive institutions for the preservation of a society's cultural heritage. They have become instead learning environments, research centres and even tourist attractions. The paper introduces the notion of a hybrid museum (HM) in which wireless personal digital devices (PDAs) are used to tailor digital contents to the visitor to enrich both the learning and enterta...
