Vehicles are becoming complex software systems with many components and services that need to be coordinated. Service oriented architectures can be used in this domain to support intra-vehicle, inter-vehicles, and vehicle-environment services. Such architectures can be deployed on different platforms, using different communication and coordination(More)
The solutions for dangerous goods transportation usually need to deal with several constraints and requirements. The technological level in logistics is low and fleet management systems typically employ proprietary solutions. Web services can help tackle these problems since they help widen the market, reduce the gap between advanced solutions and small to(More)
A language is presented for managing data in highly pervasive systems made of very different devices as to their technology and functional capabilities. Functional and nonfunctional requirements are dealt with in a transparent mode by a SQL like interface. In this paper the most relevant features of the language, the related data structures and some query(More)
The increasing diffusion of ubiquitous communication infrastructures and physical active objects-like sensors and smart tags-is motivating the integration of these devices into advanced distributed systems. The novelty of these technologies has imposed a "code and fix" approach; only a few methodologies have been developed to address the integration of(More)
Introduction Nowdays research and market pay attention to new software architectures like service oriented ones (SOA). These paradigms are intrinsically distributed systems, many times they are composed of federations of systems non controlled by the same organization. This often implies heterogeneous architec-tures and a not standardized semantic of(More)
