Software testing is the most important and most time-and cost consuming part in the software development process. According to  about 50% of the resources in a software project are spent for testing. Often, research activities, with the goal to automatise this process, cover only the generation of test cases and their execution. The important topic of… (More)
For efficient analysis of large smart city data sets in (real) time a knowledge-based approach is suggested, constraining iteratively the search space while increasing accuracy by more complex computation. Results are shown for searching the distance to the nearest object, e.g., parking space.
Due to renewable energies, the feed-in to the power grid will fluctuate increasingly. As long as no highly efficient storage technology is found, the importance of demand side management (DSM) will grow. Different algorithms have been proposed for managing the consumers. However, they cannot be easily compared due to a lot of different assumptions while… (More)
Clusters composed of fast personal computers are now w ell established as cheap and eecient platforms for distributed and parallel applications. The main drawback of a standard NOWs is the poor performance of the standard inter-process communication mechanisms based on RPC, sockets, TCPPIP, Ethernet. Such standard communication mechanisms perform poorly… (More)
