A Cowboy Game with Motion-Haptic Feedback

The crucial procedure in immersive games is to compute motion-haptic information in response to a player’s interaction with virtual objects and to convey the motion-haptic information to the player. In this paper, we develop a motion-haptic simulator and suggest an immersive game which allows a user to experience the same sensation as if he/she rides a real horse and shoots a rifle on the horse. The proposed game is composed of a motion re-creating platform for constructing virtual environment, and a main controller for creating motion-haptic feedback. To simulate the behavior of horse riding, we recreate the horse’s motion with cylinders, solenoid valves, and electric motors.

Smooth Morphing of Point-Sampled Geometry

Based on spherical parameterization, in this paper, we put forward a smooth morphing algorithm for point-sampled geometry (PSG). Source and target PSG are first parameterized onto a unit sphere, respectively. After aligning the feature point-pairs on the two unit spheres, they are merged into a single sphere and based on it, the correspondence relation is constructed. We then use Laplacian coordinate to nonlinearly interpolate the shapes and the intermediated shapes are up-sampled using the moving least squares scheme. Experiment results demonstrate that our algorithm can generate natural intermediated shapes and visually smooth morphing sequences.

Dynamical Model for Gamification: Optimization of Four Primary Factors of Learning Games for Educational Effectiveness

This paper proposes a dynamical model for the gamification of learning. The main idea of this model is based on the correlations of four primary factors (curiosity, challenge, fantasy and control) originating from digital games which are built on the foundations of separate theories: 1) Game Design Features, 2) Key Characteristics of a Learning Game, 3) ARCS Model, and 4) MDA framework. Through this dynamical model, we will show that the effectiveness of the gamification of learning is educationally superior to traditional ways of learning in a specific setting, after an elapsed adaptive time period with a reasonable relationship of the four primary factors. The model presents the meaningful positions of four primary factors on the equation for educational effectiveness of gamification. We posit that this dynamical model for the gamification can strengthen the ‘theoretical foundation’ of gamification as well as spread the idea of ‘the pure and right function of game’.

A Scalable Service Discovery Protocol with the Optimal Discovery Time for Large-Scale Cyber Physical Systems

A Cyber Physical System (CPS) is an autonomous embedded system based on high reliability with real-time control of distributed physical systems through networks. Data distribution middleware for CPS should be based on a data-centric approach and guarantee real-time performance. In this regard, OMG’s DDS is the best proximity middleware. RTPS (Real-Time Publish/Subscribe) is proposed for real-time service discovery in DDS. However, legacy discovery protocols cannot completely support the CPS system with a large-scale network (approx. 100,000 entities) like a warship, because service discovery messages are proportional to the square of the number of participants in RTPS. This paper proposes a scalable service discovery protocol with optimal discovery time for large-scale cyber physical systems using random back-off and slow-start algorithms. The performance results prove that our protocol works to scale for large-scale CPS networks by minimizing the discovery time as well as traffic simultaneously.

Domain Model of a Pattern Language for Class Responsibility Assignment for Information Systems

Assigning class responsibility is a design decision to be made early in the design phase in software development, bridging analysis modeling and design modeling. However, it heavily relies on the expertise and experience of the developer and has been ad-hoc. The existing work describes general stepwise guidelines, but does not provide concrete methods. In this paper, we present a pattern language that helps identifying and assigning class responsibilities for applications in the information systems domain. The presented pattern language consists of eight patterns. Before presenting the patterns for class responsibility assignment, we introduce a domain model which provides idioms for the composition of each pattern. The participating roles in the domain model are explained. We pick up a pattern specification and explain the way of composing the pattern.

Performance Improvement for the HSR Ring Protocol with Traffic Control in Smart Grid

High-availability Seamless Redundancy (HSR) protocol is proposed to recover disconnection of network within a short time. An Intelligent Electronic Device (IED) within a ring topology transmits two identical frames to the destination IED through both of the ports. This means that even in the case of disconnection of network, there is no stoppage of network operations whatsoever. However, because two identical frames are circulated inside the network, HSR protocol has a problem that causes the unnecessary traffic. This problem will degrade the network performance and may cause network congestion or delays.

In this paper, we propose improvement of ring topology-based HSR protocol traffic performance using a Traffic Control IED (TCIED). First, we select one of the IEDs within a ring topology as a TCIED. The TCIED has the function to keep information of all the IEDs through Supervision Ack frame. Also, If TCIED cannot be received identical data frame for a certain period of time after a data frame receiving, the TCIED transmits data frame to a destination IED. In an existing HSR protocol, all the IEDs transmit Supervision frame using multicast. However, in this paper, only a TCIED transmits Supervision frame, and general IEDs received Supervision frame transmit Supervision Ack frame to the TCIED. Also, Timer of the TCIED is occurred after a data frame receiving. If the TCIED cannot be received identical data frame before the timer expires, the TCIED transmits data frame to a destination IED. By using Traffic Control IED, the proposed algorithm will reduce the network traffic and retain HSR network’s availability. The performance evaluation shows that the proposed algorithm is better than an existing HSR algorithm.

A Dynamic Caching Algorithm Based on the Pheromone for Content Distribution Networks

A content distribution network (CDN) is a system to improve the delivery of content to the end users on the Internet, in which popular content may be cached or replicated at a number of servers, placed closer to some client populations. The design of a CDN consists of defining which content should be replicated at each server, the number of servers, where they should be placed in the network, which server a client’s requests should be sent to, and how server responses should be routed to the clients. CDNs were originally designed for traditional web files. However, given the increase in streaming media content on the Internet, the development of efficient CDN design methods that take into account the special characteristics of media objects, is of great interest. These characteristics include sustained high bandwidth requirements and faster response time by multicast delivery. The main goal of this paper is to propose an algorithm for designing a streaming media CDN with the efficient byte hit ratio and fast response time. We propose the segment-based dynamic caching mechanism with the pheromone that is defined a kind of lifetime of each segment. We evaluate this algorithm in simulations using CDNsim.

Performance Evaluation of the Sector Mapping Schemes Considering Mapping Table Size

The goal of the paper is to evaluate the performance of the sector mapping schems of flash translation layer (FTL) considering the different memory requirements of the schemes. Under the given memory, we assume that the available memory space is used as buffer for NAND flash memory and that the buffer is managed by the block-level LRU replacement scheme. The trace-drive simulation shows that the page mapping scheme delivers the best performance even though the available buffer size is smaller than other schemes. However, in the very memory-hash environment, other hybrid mapping schemes delivers a better performance than the page mapping scheme.

Optimizing Distributed Joins with Bloom Filters Using MapReduce

The MapReduce framework is increasingly being used to process and analyze large-scale datasets over large clusters. Join operation using MapReduce is an attractive point to which researchers have been paying attention in recent years. The distributed join based on the bloom filter has been proved to be a successful technique to improve the efficiency. However, the full potential of the bloom filter has not been fully exploited, especially in the MapReduce environment. In this paper, we present several strategies to build the bloom filter for the large dataset using MapReduce, compare some bloom-join algorithms and point out how to improve the performance of two-way and multi-way joins. The experiments we conduct show that our method is feasible and effective.

Generating Random Numbers for Cryptographic Modules Using Race Conditions in GPU

In modern cryptography, random numbers are widely used for generating encryption keys and establishing secure channels. Cryptographic modules generate pseudo random numbers using the initial value called ‘seed’. Accordingly, the security of random numbers depends highly upon that of seed. Usually, seeds are obtained from physical or logical noises generated by mouse, keyboard, and thermal noise. In this paper, it will be shown that random numbers can be generated on GPUs. In fact, race conditions caused by simutaneous memory accesses enable GPUs to generate Gaussian noises which can be used as entropy sources for random number generator in cryptographic modules. After distillation processes, cryptographic random numbers can be extracted.

Efficient Detection of First Races in Concurrent Signal Handlers

Detecting first races is important for debugging shared memory parallel programs including sequential programs that use concurrent signal handlers because the removal of such data races may cause other data races in the program to disappear. Unfortunately, existing tools for sequential programs do not focus on first race detection or report only the single data race detected first in a program execution which is not enough for a program debugging. This paper presents an efficient on-the-fly technique that uses an existing lightweight labeling scheme to collect and filter at most four access candidates for each shared variable for an effective first race detection in sequential programs. An evaluation of our technique on a set of synthetic programs shows its ability to report first races.

Detecting First Races in Shared-Memory Parallel Programs with Random Synchronization

Detecting data races is a hard problem when debugging shared memory parallel programs, because the races could exhibit unpredictable results in execution of programs. It is even harder for programmers to decide whether or how the reported data races can appear in the actual program executions. Previous techniques for detecting races cannot provide method to discover first races in parallel programs with random synchronization. We present an algorithm, in this paper, which extracts first races to occur by comparing the concurrency of the traced information with the candidate accesses which are from a particular execution of parallel programs.

Using Weighted Hybrid Discretization Method to Analyze Climate Changes

Data mining is the process of posing queries to large quantities of data and extracting information, often previously unknown, using mathematical, statistical and machine learning techniques. However some of the data mining techniques like classification and clustering cannot deal with numeric attributes though most real dataset contains some numeric attributes. Continuous attributes should be divided into a small distinct range of nominal attributes in order to apply data mining techniques. Correct discretization makes the dataset succinct and contributes to the high performance of classification algorithms. Meanwhile, several methods are presented and applied, but it is often dependent on the area. In this paper, we propose a weighted hybrid discretization technique based on entropy and contingency coefficient. Also we analyze performance evaluation with well-known techniques of discretization such as Equal-width binning, 1R, MDLP and ChiMerge.

The Standardization of Partitioning Audible Sound by A7B

Scholars and analysts of sound hope to have a standard system that is self-explanatory in assigning different tones including low, mid, and high, to any given sound with certain pitch. Yet, such system has not been developed, or recognized in the field. The absence of the system may bring about different results in analyzing sounds due to the lack of standardized vocabulary and objectivity. This paper suggests a way to improve the current situation using 7 bandwidths of sound in order to standardize the process of partitioning tones and thus proposes the implementation of the Acoustic 7 Bandwidths (A7B) system as a portioning system of audible sound, an indicator of sound tone in other words. The proposed system is based on the proper partitioning of sounds in audible range to humans and has an advantage of relatively easy implementation. The following 7 bandwidths of sound contain same cents range of frequency for each category: ultra-low tone, low tone, mid-low tone, mid-tone, mid-high tone, and ultra-high tone. The use of the standardized system of partitioning sound through A7B will provide objective analysis and fair comparison of sounds with respect to tone and frequency.

Automatic Danger and Directional Detection Method for Headphone Users

Portable audio players remove spatial constraints for listening to music or playing audio and allow us to easily enjoy music by using headphones anywhere and at any time. However, using headphones to listen to music on the street leads to traffic accidents with deadly consequences because people cannot detect dangers, and the number of such accidents is gradually increasing. This study was conducted to suggest a method of enabling headphone users to recognize dangers around them while walking on the street. This method detects and evaluates external danger signals and then controls audio playback to communicate a warning message to users. Furthermore, it can also detect the direction of the origin of the external audio stimulation.

In 2011, Lee et al. proposed an improved Li-Hwang’s biometrics-based remote user authentication scheme, and claimed that does not only provide session key establishment and mutual authentication but also withstand various attacks. In this paper, we analyze the security of Lee et al.’s scheme and we show that Lee et al.’s scheme is still insecure against the various attacks. Also, we propose an improved scheme that can remove these security flaws of Lee et al.’s scheme and provide session key agreement, even if the secret information stored in the smart card is revealed. As a result of security analysis, the improved scheme is relatively more secure than the related authentication schemes in terms of the security.

Accelerating USG Image Reconstruction with SAR Implementation on CUDA

Ultrasonography scanning allows to obtain a cross-section picture of a scanned object, and medical ultrasonography has become one of the most common and safe diagnostic methods. In the process of ultrasonographic image rendition probes with ultrasonic sensors transmit sound waves into an object being scanned and receive the reflected echoes. The received data is reconstructed into a digital image. Since reconstruction algorithms process massive amounts of data, acceptable performance has traditionally been obtained due to dedicated architectures based on specialized integrated circuits and embedded software. In this paper we present a new, fast implementation of USG image rendition based on SAR algorithm efficiently implemented on low-cost and commonly available CUDA architecture. We describe the SAR algorithm, explain its CUDA implementation and demonstrate test results featuring a significant speed-up in rendition time.

Who’s More Powerful? King vs. Knight: Relative Influence of CEO vs. Team Leader on Emotional Contagion and Performance

Organizations are neither isolated nor insulated from emotional display. This paper examines the emotional contagion between a leader and followers and its impact on performance, and tries to answer the question of “What should leaders do, express positive emotions or negative emotions?”. I test the emotional contagion effects of leader-follower relationship, using two contextual variables – organizational and team performance – and take the different hierarchical position of leaders into consideration. Moreover, this paper determines in which circumstance among four scenarios described in the paper the followers converge emotionally more to CEO vs team leader.

Examining the Impact of a User’s Previous Experience with Pets on Robot-Assisted Therapy

Recently, the use of animal-type robots for therapeutic applications has emerged. In order to verify the utility of robot-assisted therapy (RAT), the present paper examined the impact of a user’s previous experience with real pets on robot-assisted therapy. Thirty-three participants were recruited for the study, and were divided into two groups: people with previous experience with real pets, and people with no previous experience with real pets. A robotic dog Genibo was presented to both groups of people, and their psychological wellbeing was measured before and after the experiment. The results revealed that the participants who had previous pet experience showed a significant improvement in their psychological wellbeing compared to participants with no previous pet experience.
