Internet of Things analytics engines are complex to use and often optimized for a single domain or limited to proprietary data. A prototype system shows that existing Web analytics technologies can successfully be repurposed for IoT applications including sensor monitoring and user engagement tracking.
There is evidence that the public are learning to either ignore or actively avoid public displays. While most research has focused on addressing this issue by increasing the perceived value of the content shown we have been inspired by the strong bind between mobile phones and their users to explore an alternative approach, i.e. to encourage viewers to form… (More)
Walking School Buses (WSBs) are becoming an increasingly popular way of reducing school gate congestion. They typically feature a coordinator who is assigned to walk a designated route, calling at several pick-up points that parents can use to join their children to the "bus". However, parents often feel limited by the rigidity of the scheduled walking bus… (More)
While traditional displays networks are typically closed systems, researchers are now beginning to explore the notion of open display networks in which content can be obtained from a wide range of sources. Open display networks have very different properties to closed networks as they need to deal with multiple management domains and conflicting content and… (More)
PAMPA is a family of broadcast algorithms for adhoc and wireless networks that are both lightweight and robust. PAMPA variants have shown promising performance results in simulations. Simulations can however be misleading, as they often poorly reflect reality. This paper seeks to further our understanding of PAMPA beyond simulations, and reports on the… (More)
BACKGROUND Walking school buses (WSBs) offer a potentially healthier way for children to get to school while reducing traffic congestion. A number of pressing societal challenges make it timely to evaluate evidence of their value. METHODS Studies that focused solely on WSBs were identified through online and manual literature searches. Twelve WSB studies… (More)
