—We present eBDtheque, a database of various comic book images and their ground truth for panels, balloons and text lines plus semantic annotations. The database consists of a hundred pages of various comic book albums, Franco-Belgian, American comics and mangas. Additionally, we present the piece of software used to establish the ground truth and a tool to(More)
— In this paper, we focus on the ability of Bluetooth to support Quality of Service (QoS) requirements expressed by QoS sensitive applications. The QoS perceived by the application depends on the efficiency of the scheduling schemes chosen at the medium access layer. We focus on two QoS constraints : the importance degree of a message and its delivery(More)
In this paper, we focus on the ability of Bluetooth to support Quality of Service (QoS) requirements expressed by QoS sensitive applications. We focus on the quantitative QoS guarantee that can be granted to an uplink or downlink flow in terms of end-to-end delay. Two approaches are presented. The deterministic one is based on a worst case analysis and(More)

In this paper, we focus on the Bluetooth wireless network, analyzing its ability to support Quality of Service (QoS) requirements defined by the application. We focus on two QoS parameters : (i) an application constraint denoting the importance degree of a message, and (ii) an end-to-end delivery deadline. In a first step, we introduce a local scheduling(More)
