    The adoption of wireless communication technologies in industrial environments for supporting (soft) real-time applications heavily depends on the ability to grant bounded response times for messages, at least from a probabilistic point of view. This aspect is particularly important in factory automation systems, where response times are considered much more significant than other performance indi... View full abstract»

    We present a system level design methodology for clustered wireless sensor networks based on a semi-random communication protocol called SERAN, a mathematical model that allows to optimize the protocol parameters, and a network initialization and maintenance procedure. SERAN is a two-layer (routing and MAC) protocol. At both layers, SERAN combines a randomized and a deterministic approach. While t... View full abstract»

    Currently, there is a trend towards the implementation of industrial communication systems using wireless networks. However, keeping up with the timing constraints of real-time traffic in wireless environments is a hard task. The main reason is that real-time devices must share the same communication medium with timing unconstrained devices. The VTP-CSMA architecture has been proposed to deal with... View full abstract»

    This paper is concerned with the issue of protecting CAN networks against the consequences of babbling-idiot faults such as unscheduled traffic generated by a faulty node that denies any other communication. A full solution of the problem would greatly enhance the dependability of the CAN networks, making them applicable to safety-critical systems. After explaining the weakness of the native CAN p...

    Coalition formation methods allow autonomous agents to join together in order to act as a coherent group in which they increase their individual gains by collaborating with each other. Although there are some research efforts toward coalition formation in multiagent systems (MAS), such as game theory-based approaches, these methods cannot be easily applied in real-world scenarios. Based on a novel... View full abstract»

    We focus on the data models for storing the data generated by radio frequency identification (RFID) transactions and architectures for processing such data. We consider the supply chain comprised of the manufacturer, distributor, retailer, and the consumer. We discuss details of the data generated by RFID transactions and data models to store such data. Different organizations in the supply chain ... View full abstract»
