Since these areas have been treasured and tended for very long periods of time, they are usually surrounded by old and valuable vegetation or situated close to forest regions, which exposes them to an increased(More)
Wireless sensor networks promise great success in many areas from environmental monitoring to medical and military applications. Forest fire detection is one of these areas where many of the ongoing WSN research is focused today. Unfortunately, most of these studies choose simulating their proposed solutions instead of doing experiments in real testbed(More)
We present a smartwatch application that recognizes important sign sentences. We make use of modern smart watches like Samsung Gear that are equipped with inbuilt sensors including accelerometer, gyroscope and magnetometer. We show how well a smartwatch can recognize important sign sentences. We have implemented a smartwatch app that collects 3d(More)

Weather reports are an integral part of almost any modern newscast service. Concise weather reports, which are often found in mobile applications, consist of logos for indicating sunshine, cloudiness, fog or rain. The weather information is usually obtained from professional weather stations. SkyMap aims to create mobile weather reports based on crowd(More)
Participatory sensing is a new paradigm that is based on the data collection, such as images, air and noise measurements, through the embedded digital sensors and radios on current smartphones owned by voluntary users. The participants in such a system can either be self-motivated or persuaded through incentives with amounts depending on factors such as(More)
