We present a novel technique to combine services, provided by mobile as well as fixed devices, on-the-fly and in a context-sensitive way within smart environments containing groups of people. The key intuition at the base of our approach is that, in those environments, similar functions are provided simultaneously by many agents on board of different(More)
We propose a form of group communication, called channeled multi-cast, for active rooms and other scenarios featuring strict real-time requirements, inherently unreliable communication, and a continuously changing set of context-aware autonomous systems. In our approach, rooted in multi-agent and team programming , coordination and cooperation are supported(More)

Proteoglycans (PGs), a family of complex post-translationally sculptured macromolecules, are fundamental regulators of most normal and aberrant cellular functions. The unparalleled structural–functional diversity of PGs endows them with the ability to serve as critical mediators of the tumor cells’ interaction with the host microenvironment, while directly(More)
We are investigating how to provide intelligent, pervasive support of group of people within so-called " smart environments ". Our current main assumption, based on literature in psychology and organizational studies, is that a group performs some complex, routine task as a structured activity, that is, by following some protocols that allow its members to(More)

The problem of tracking moving objects or human beings is a challenging problem in mobile robotics. Knowledge about the position of moving subjects can be used both to improve the behavior of the robotic system, and to perform tasks of monitoring or following. Different methodologies have been applied in literature, using different sensors and techniques(More)
