In particular, bees are excellent pollinators; therefore, their mapping,(More)
The purpose of Sustainable Design, SD, is to satisfy customer needs while reducing environmental impacts. The main challenge is to integrate Life Cycle Assessment, Product Service Systems, social and economic aspects while considering the tensions and trade-offs of each activity in depth. SD requires data from many sources in addition to many software tools(More)
The purpose of ecological niche modelling is to obtain a probabilistic species distribution based on species localiza-tion and environmental data. The problem is highly complex from the architectural viewpoint because its requirements include different distributed, interoperable and integration issues. Monolithic solutions were proposed and implemented but(More)
Conservation and sustainable use of natural resources are relevant research areas for many different purposes, including biodiversity maintenance, global warming studies and sustainable development. An ecological niche model presents the geographic distribution of a species, considering the spatial, ecological and evolutionary perspectives. It also allows(More)
Autonomous mobile robots can be applied to perform activities that should not, or cannot, be performed by humans due to inhospitable conditions or high level of danger. An autonomous mobile robot must be able to navigate safely in unfamiliar environments by reconstructing information from its sensors so as to plan and execute routes. Simultaneous(More)
