This paper illustrates the results of a research effort to measure the quality of software agents written in Java using extreme programming. A factoring of quality has been chosen in accordance with the properties and limitations of the type of products and development method considered. The use of the representational theory of measurement gave(More)
PURPOSE To compare the stride-to-stride fluctuations, regularity and symmetry of gait using a body-fixed accelerometer in a group of healthy young and healthy older adults. METHODS Forty-one healthy young adults (24 ± 3 years) and forty-one healthy older adults (76 ± 5 years) completed a 10-min walk at a self-selected, normal walking speed while wearing a(More)
This work presents a self-aware diabetic patient software agent for representing a human diabetic patient. To develop a 24h, stochastic and self-aware patient agent, we extend the original seminal work of Ackerman et al. [1] in creating a mathematical model of human blood glucose levels in three aspects. (1) We incorporate the stochastic and unpredictable(More)
This paper proposes a general solution model using agent technology in order to solve two critical open issues in the course timetabling problem: application-specific issues and dynamic-constraint issues. In our solution model, each agent in the system represents a constraint in the course timetabling problem. Compared to existing course timetabling(More)
A mobile multi-agent system is proposed to create solutions for the university course timetabling problem. It is composed of four kinds of agents: (mobile) Course Agents, and (stationary) Signboard, Publisher and Interface Agents. The key strength of this new approach is to use a fundamental attribute of Agents that of autonomy. This autonomy is manifested(More)
A single triaxial accelerometer has the ability to collect a large amount of continuous gait data to quantitatively assess the control of gait. Unfortunately, there is limited information on the validity of gait variability and fractal dynamics obtained from this device. The purpose of this study was to test the concurrent validity of the variability and(More)
