Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A number of different system concepts have become apparent in the broader context of embedded systems over the past few years. Whilst there are some differences between these, this book argues that in fact there is much they share in common, particularly the important notions of control, heterogenity, wireless communication, dynamics/ad hoc nature and cost.

The first part of the book covers cooperating object applications and the currently available application scenarios, such as control and automation, healthcare, and security and surveillance. The second part discusses paradigms for algorithms and interactions. The third part covers various types of vertical system functions, including data aggregation, resource management and time synchronization. The fourth part outlines system architecture and programming models, outlining all currently available architectural models and middleware approaches that can be used to abstract the complexity of cooperating object technology.

Finally, the book concludes with a discussion of the trends guiding current research and gives suggestions as to possible future developments and how various shortcomings in the technology can be overcome.

Book News Annotation:

With a rapidly expanding industry and intense competition, different system concepts are likely to emerge. The contributors of these five extended articles, however, argue that many concepts share ideas on control, heterogeneity, wireless communications, dynamics, cost and other factors. After an introduction to the concept of cooperating objects and sensor networks, topics include applications, in such markets as control and automation or logistics, application scenarios, such as sustainable bridges and smart surroundings, paradigms for algorithms and interactions, including wireless sensor networks and robots, vertical system functions, such as context and location management, system architectures and programming models, and a road map of cooperating objects including methodology and structure. Each article includes its own references and the editors provide an author list along with the general index. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

This volume is dedicated to the theme “Combinatorial Optimization – Theoretical Computer Science: Interfaces and Perspectives” and has two main objectives: the first is to show that bringing together operational research and theoretical computer science can yield useful results for a range of applications, while the second is to demonstrate the quality and range of research conducted by the LAMSADE in these areas.
