SDL - The IoT Language [chapter]

Edel Sherratt, Ileana Ober, Emmanuel Gaudin, Pau Fonseca i Casas, Finn Kristoffersen
2015 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
The potential for SDL to enhance reliability and safety is explored with respect to existing smart things below.  ...  Moreover, awareness of the potential benefits of SDL must be raised if those benefits are to be realized in the current and future Internet of Things.  ...  SDL does not interface directly with CAD systems. For the future, it would be good to extract models of the implied SDL agent from designs of new devices.  ...

Designing Multichannel Value Propositions to Enhance Value-Cocreation Phenomenon

Vittorio Cesarotti, Alessio Giuiusa, Stephen K. Kwan, Vito Introna, Jim Spohrer
2014 International Journal of Service Science Management Engineering and Technology  
Service Science introduced the abstraction of service systems, which while jointly interacting can cocreate value. The term "cocreation" captures the collaborative nature of value creation.  ...  Whilst value, between two or more service entities, is always cocreated, value-cocreation is rarely considered in designing a service even though this is a main design driver that leads to successful construction  ...  INTRODUCTION We interact daily with complex service systems for a plethora of reasons (e.g., transportation to reach our office, energy, telecommunications, etc.).  ...

Energy modelling in sensor networks

D. Schmidt, M. Krämer, T. Kuhn, N. Wehn
2007 Advances in Radio Science  
Energy resources for sensor nodes are very scarce. A key challenge is the design of energy efficient communication protocols.  ...  The models were integrated in a simulation environment as well as in a SDL runtime framework of a model driven design process.  ...  With our models of the MICAz we have extended the scheduler of the specification language SDL to optimize energy. SDL is a reactive language with additional timers.  ...

Self-directed Learning in L2 Acquisition: A Review of Theory, Practice, and Research

Fatemeh Giveh, Mehdi Ghobadi, Zahra Zamani
2018 Journal of Language Teaching and Research  
The review is presented with respect to both theoretical underpinnings and research of self-directed L2 learning.  ...  As L2 teaching is concerned, teachers are now more preoccupied with facilitating the process of L2 learning rather than 'teaching' in its traditional sense of the term.  ...  Thus, metacognitive strategies would help the learner raise his awareness of how an L2 should be learned and how much energy, time, and other resources should be invested in the endeavor so that the optimal  ...

Combining scalability and resource awareness in Wireless Sensor Network localization

Ralf Behnke, Alexander Born, Jakob Salzmann, Dirk Timmermann, Ralf Bill
2011 2011 IEEE Conference on Computer Communications Workshops (INFOCOM WKSHPS)  
This newly introduced algorithm has been compared to its sDLS counterpart by use of a WSN simulator with real world channel model.  ...  On the other hand, Resource Aware Localization Algorithm (RAL) simplified calculation and improved accuracy by use of a different linearization approach.  ...  Due to limitations in terms of size, financial cost and energy consumption, local positioning within the network is preferred over utilizing Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSSs) like GPS [4] .  ...

Sink-oriented Dynamic Location Service Protocol for Mobile Sinks with an Energy Efficient Grid-Based Approach

Hyeonjae Jeon, Kwangjin Park, Dae-Joon Hwang, Hyunseung Choo
2009 Sensors  
In SDLS, we propose an Eight-Direction Anchor (EDA) system that acts as a location service server.  ...  EDA prevents intensive energy consumption at the border sensor nodes and thus provides energy balancing to all the sensor nodes.  ...  However, both SDLS and ALS find node locations using global grid nodes with low energy consumption. The anchor system of ALS concentrates location information on border nodes.  ...
