Design of Athlete Information Provision System Using Object Recognition

The suggested athlete information provision system obtains the image of an athlete who is playing a game, through the broadcast cameras installed at several places of the stadium. The server extracts the uniform information using uniform information extraction/recognition module, out of the athlete image transmitted from the broadcast cameras. The extracted information is used to identify athlete information and league information stored in the database. the identified athlete information is transmitted to the smart phone by which the user is watching a live broadcast of the game, so that the user watches the broadcast relayed more easily. This is the athlete information provision service system using the uniform information as an object.

Fault Tolerant Intelligent Transportation Systems with an Agent

The Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) consists of advanced communications, electronics, and information technologies to improve the efficiency, safety, and reliability of nationwide transportation systems. The core functions of the ITS are collection, management, and provision of real time transport information, and it can be deployed based on the Common Object Request Broker Architecture (CORBA) of the Object Management Group (OMG) because it consists of interconnected heterogeneous systems across national and local governments. Fault Tolerant CORBA (FT-CORBA) supports real time requirement of transport information through redundancy by replication of server objects. However, object replication, management, and related protocols of FT-CORBA require extra system CPU and memory resources, and can degrade the end-to-end predictability both locally and as a whole. This paper proposes an improved architecture to enhance fault tolerance, reliability, and ultimately predictability of FT-CORBA based ITS by generating and managing object replicas adaptively during system operation with an agent. The proposed architecture is expected to be applicable to other FT-CORBA based systems for an electronic government (e-government).

TMDR-Based Query Conversion for Data Integration in a Distributed Network

Corporate data are divided vertically or horizontally in the network by their functions. In this study, we propose a TMDR-based query conversion method to access these data by means of integration. TMDR is a repository that combines MSO for schema integration and Topic Maps for semantic integration of data. In methodology, the global query is created for global processing using TMDR, and the resulting global query is broken down into local schema to access distributed systems in a network, enabling integrated access. We propose a method of converting global query and local query for this purpose.

Unaffected User Interface for CAVE Using Motion Templates Method

In this paper, we develop an unaffected interface for CAVE using the motion templates method. We develop background model for CAVE with real photos. The panoramic images are constructed using these photos from real environment and texture-mapped to virtual sphere surround CAVE. As a user interface for this background model, the motion templates method of computer vision technologies is used. The computer vision module recognizes predefined user’s gestures and sends commands to render module of CAVE system via internet using UDP protocols. Using this method, the users can manipulate the background model unaffectedly.

Determinants in Supply Chain Application Integration Strategy: Case-Based Comparison Study

Since early 90’s, many leading companies implemented enterprise resource planning (ERP) system in order to enhance their competitive advantage. In its early stage of ERP adoption, called core ERP, the focus was on integrating a firm’s internal processes; so that, increasing its internal efficiency. More recently, firms began to expand their system across their supply chain in order to enhance the supply chain capability by implementing inter-firm system integration. Previous research suggested two alternative approaches for the inter-firm integration: EDI and web-based integration. While many works mentioned pros and cons for the two alternatives, few of them explicitly identified determinants those influence the choice between the alternatives. In this study, we proposed four sets of determinants: downstream relationship, transaction characteristics, target process, contents characteristics and IT infrastructure. We selected two companies and tested the proposed framework and reported the results.

Traffic Rerouting Strategy against Jamming Attacks for Islanded Microgrid

In this paper, we design a communication framework using wireless paradigm for multiagent-based islanded microgrid operation and control. The vulnerability against radio interference attacks is fatal in the microgrid as an energy infrastructure. Thus, the ability to deal with radio interference attacks and maintain an acceptable level of service degradation in presence of the attacks is needed in the design of the communication framework.

Dynamic Touch-Screen UI Generation of Mobile Application Using Probe Key Test

As touch-screen mobile phones pour into the market, demands for reusing existing mobile applications by adding a touch-screen UI are increasing. Up until this point, the method of defining a single screen keyboard and redirecting touch inputs to key inputs was used. However, this method diminishes the efficiency of touch-screens because a fixed-layout is applied to every application even though different keys are used for different UI states of an application. This study proposes a method that investigates the type of keys used in an application during run-time using the probe key and dynamically configures the layout of screen keyboards. Test results of the proposed method showed that an optimized touch-screen UI was generated every time the UI state of an application changed.

Noise Reducing of Multi-sensor RFID System by Improved Kalman Filter

For reducing noise in multi-sensor RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) system, we proposed the GA-Kalman Filter method in this paper. The proposed method is that membership functions of the fuzzy logic system are optimized by genetic algorithm (GA) under off-line, and then fuzzy logic system is constructed by the optimization parameters under on-line. Multi-sensors, humidity, oxygen and temperature, are used to our experiments, and are impacted by correlated noises. One of the most important factors of RFID sensor network system is accuracy in sensor data measurement. However, correlated noises are occurred in multi-sensor system. Kalman Filter has been widely applied to solve the noise problem which is occurred sensor data measurement. In this paper, the proposed GA-Fuzzy Kalman Filter method has the noise reducing compared to the general Kalman Filter method.

A Virtual Machine Migration Management for Multiple Datacenters-Based Cloud Environments

In multiple datacenters-based cloud environments, virtual machines migrates across nodes located in the same or different datacenter to provide users with efficient resource provisioning services. Especially, migration between nodes located in different datacenter usually works on a wide area network. However, it takes a longer time than a local area network-based migration to transfer virtual devices’ state. In addition, it might change IP address of the migrated virtual machine on the target node. Therefore, in the wide area network-based migration, it is necessary to carefully consider migration transparency. This paper proposes a virtual machine location management and a reliable message delivery protocol for wide area network-based multiple datacenters cloud environments to guarantee message delivery to the migrated virtual machine. In addition, this paper also presents a smart-copy migration method for virtual machines to adaptively migrate according to network status.

EEDBR: Energy-Efficient Depth-Based Routing Protocol for Underwater Wireless Sensor Networks

Recently, Underwater Wireless Sensor Networks (UWSNs) have attracted much research attention from both academia and industry, in order to explore the vast underwater environment. However, designing network protocols is challenging in UWSNs since UWSNs have peculiar characteristics of large propagation delay, high error rate, low bandwidth and limited energy. In UWSNs, improving the energy efficiency is one of the most important issues since the replacement of the batteries of such nodes is very expensive due to harsh underwater environment. Hence, in this paper, we propose an energy efficient routing protocol, named EEDBR (Energy-Efficient Depth Based Routing protocol) for UWSNs. Our proposed protocol utilizes the depth of the sensor nodes for forwarding the data packets. Furthermore, the residual energy of the sensor nodes is also taken into account in order to improve the network life-time. Based on the comprehensive simulation using NS2, we observe that our proposed routing protocol contributes to the performance improvements in terms of the network lifetime, energy consumption and end-to-end delay.

A Relay Vehicle Selection Scheme for Delivery of Emergency Message Considering Density and Trajectory of Moving Vehicles for VANET

Dissemination of safety alert messages through the broadcast is one of the most important applications for VANET. Excessive channel contention due to the simultaneous transmission of packets leads to the broadcast storm. To reduce the contention and redundant messages, it requires an effective multihop relay vehicle selection scheme. Therefore, we propose a relay vehicle selection scheme for delivery of emergency message considering the density of moving vehicles for VANET. In this paper, the most far vehicle from the previous relay vehicle while it belongs to the tolerant angle considering density is selected as a relay vehicle for next hop in distributed manner. To analyze its performance, we evaluate the number of hops for delivery of emergency messages and the number of candidate relay vehicles participating in competition for accessing the wireless channel. Simulation results show that the numbers of competition vehicles and hops can be reduced by application of an adequate tolerant angle considering with density of vehicle and location window size.

A Density-Based Clustering Scheme for Wireless Sensor Networks

In this paper, we propose a new energy efficient clustering scheme to prolong the network lifetime by reducing energy consumption at the sensor node. Every node will determine whether to participate in clustering with a certain probability, based on the local sensor density. This scheme is useful under the assumption that sensor nodes are deployed unevenly within the sensing area. By adjusting dynamically the probability of participating in clustering, the energy consumption of the network is reduced and the lifetime of the network is extended. The major improvement in power consumption happens in densely populated areas, where the probabilities of a node skipping a round of clustering are higher. Through computer simulation, we verified that the proposed scheme is more energy efficient than the LEACH clustering scheme in densely populated areas, while maintaining similar performance otherwise.

An Energy Efficient On-Demand Routing Scheme Based on Link Quality for Wireless Sensor Networks

Most of legacy routing schemes for wireless sensor networks do not consider the retransmission energy consumption when they predict the transmission energy consumption. They usually select the path based on hop by hop routing technology. Therefore these routing schemes have a problem in that they may exclude the path even though the path has better energy efficiency. In this paper, we proposed an energy aware routing scheme which transmits the accumulated predicted transmission energy value considering retransmission and minimum residual energy of node of whole candidate paths. A destination node selects the best energy efficient path within received candidate paths using energy related information. To evaluate the performance of our proposed scheme, the performance simulation has been compared to that of legacy on-demand routing scheme.

Empirical Analysis of the Effect of Knowledge Network Structure on Individual Creativity through Exploitation and Exploration

This study proposes a type of individual creativity model that is comprised of knowledge network structure and creative process. Knowledge network structure represents degree centrality and structural holes that are driven by interactions among members in organization. In this model, we assume that individuals would yield different performances by complicated network structures. On the other hand, creative process includes exploration and exploitation. While exploitation is regarded as the existing solution, exploration is the development of new solutions. To validate our proposed model, we contacted the seven largest system integration companies in South Korea. Then, we collected the questionnaires of 73 members and their recently organized 7 teams, and analyzed the data by structural equation model. Our study found that degree centrality and structural holes significantly influence exploitation and exploration. Moreover, our results show that exploitation significantly has an effect on exploration, and both exploitation and exploration influence individual creativity positively.

A Study on Governing Law Arising from Cyber Intellectual Property Disputes in Korea

With rapid IT technology development in the world, many users can enjoy the benefit of some body’s intellectual property easily in the cyber space. But when it comes to use of business, there might be disputes over the intellectual property right (IPR) in various respects. This means that infringement on IPRs may happen in the several countries simultaneously. If the disputes contain foreign matters, a problem rises as to which country or which rule shall be applied as a governing law. In this respect Korea set a provision but it was not clarified as to the scope and intention. But this has been cleared through several court cases. The court shall, however, be cautious in applying lex loci protectionis in IPR disputes as IPR is being much complicated with involvements of number of foreign factors simultaneously
