The state of the art of the field of feature interactions in telecommunications services is reviewed, concentrating on three major research trends: software engineering approaches, formal methods, and on line techniques. Then, the impact of the new, emerging architectures on the feature interaction problem is considered. A forecast is made about how(More)
Behind such automation, there is a lot of software controlling the appliances. This software, which is often referred to as services, applications, or bundles is supplied by a range of service provider businesses. Hence in a single home, appliances may be controlled by a multitude of services, which are offered by a wide variety of different providers.(More)
In this paper we assume a competitive marketplace where the features are developed by different enterprises, which cannot or will not exchange information. We present a classification of feature interaction in this setting and introduce an online technique which serves as a basis for the two novel hybrid approaches presented. These approaches are hybrid as(More)
The feature or service interaction problem within home networks is an established topic for the FI community. Interactions between home appliances, services and their environment have been reported previously. Indeed earlier work by the authors introduced a device centric approach which detects undesirable behaviour between appliances and their effects on(More)
Technology-mediated home care is attractive for older people living at home and also for their carers. It provides the information necessary to give confidence and assurance to everyone interested in the wellbeing of the older person. From a care delivery perspective, however, widespread deployment of home care technologies presents system developers with a(More)
Agent Based Models are very popular in a number of different areas. For example, they have been used in a range of domains ranging from modeling of tumor growth, immune systems, molecules to models of social networks, crowds and computer and mobile self-organizing networks. One reason for their success is their intuitiveness and similarity to human(More)
Home automation is maturing with the increased deployment of networks and intelligent devices in the home. Along with new protocols and devices, new software services have emerged and worked together releasing the full potential of networked consumer devices. Services may include home security, climate control or entertainment. With such extensive(More)
The development of hybrid multicast simulation models is required for analyzing proposed hybrid multicast architectures such as those from the IRTF Scalable Adaptive Multicastw Research Group. However most network layer simulators don't scale to the number of nodes needed for analyzing large overlays, and most overlay simulators don't have multicast routing(More)
