In this paper, we propose an efficient method for personal identification by analyzing iris patterns that have a high level of stability and distinctiveness. To improve the efficiency and accuracy of the proposed system, we present a new approach to making a feature vector compact and efficient by using wavelet transform, and two straightforward but(More)
A case study of security risk analysis of a wireless body area network for remote health monitoring as a after measure fordeploying security and privacy features is introduced in this paper. The target system has a scalable platform that requires minimum human interaction during setup and monitoring. The core components of the system include: (i)(More)
Service-oriented architecture (SOA) is a popular industry standard that provides an elegant model to create and compose interoperable applications. In the case of sensor networks, SOA is considered to be a very attractive enabler for sensor programmability and self-integration. However, SOA cannot be used without additional mechanisms to enhance the(More)
In this paper, we describe how we enhance the space sensing capabilities of the Ubiquitous Robotic Companion (URC) developed by ETRI Ko-rea, by utilizing the plug-and-play service-oriented architecture provided by University of Florida's Atlas Platform. Based on our experience in deploying services using the Atlas Platform in smart houses, for the elderly(More)
In this paper, we present a unique mechanism that enables seamless interconnection and scalability of the interface between the sensor platform layer and the middleware layer in pervasive computing. The disadvantages of using one-to-one hard coding for various device drivers and firmware for interfacing sensor platform and middleware layers are primarily a(More)
