In this paper, we present an implemented system for supporting group interaction in mobile distributed computing environments. First, an introduction to context computing and a motivation for using contextual information to facilitate group interaction is given. We then present the architecture of our system, which consists of two parts: a subsystem for(More)
The CAPSE (Computer Aided Parallel Software Engineering) environment aims to assist a performance oriented parallel program development approach by integrating tools for performance prediction in the design phase, analytical or simulation based performance analysis in the detailed speciication and coding phase, and nally monitoring in the testing and(More)
In an attempt to cope with time-varying workload, traditional adaptive Time Warp protocols are designed to react in response to performance changes by altering control parameter configurations, like the amount of available memory, the size of the checkpointing interval, the frequency of GVT computation, fossil collection invocations, etc.\ We call those(More)
—We deployed 72 sensors of 10 modalities in 15 wireless and wired networked sensor systems in the environment, in objects, and on the body to create a sensor-rich environment for the machine recognition of human activities. We acquired data from 12 subjects performing morning activities, yielding over 25 hours of sensor data. We report the number of(More)
The main performance pitfall of the Time Warp distributed discrete event simulation (DDES) protocol has been widely recognized to be the overoptimistic progression of event execution into the simulated future. The premature execution of events that eventually have to be \rolled back" due to causality violations induces memory and communication overheads as(More)
Driving a vehicle is a task affected by an increasing number and a rising complexity of Driver Assistance Systems (DAS) resulting in a raised cognitive load of the driver, and in consequence to the distraction from the main activity of driving. A number of potential solutions have been proposed so far, however, although these techniques broaden the(More)
