Skiing the embedded systems mountain

Ingrid Verbauwhede, Patrick Schaumont
2005 ACM Transactions on Embedded Computing Systems  
UCLA teaches students how to master the steep slopes of the embedded systems mountain. The EE201A graduate course connects high-level design specification to embedded implementation.  ...  Refinements lower the abstraction level toward the target architecture. The embedded systems mountain is traversed in two directions.  ...  This corresponds to skiing down different slopes of the mountain, starting from the application on the top.  ...

Ubiquitous Connectivity in the Mountains: Enhancing the Ski Experience

Bastian Pfleging, Albrecht Schmidt, Florian Michahelles
2013 IEEE pervasive computing  
The systems store the data on the Internet and use the RFID-enabled ski passes to link it to the user. One example of such system is the SkiMovie slope (see Figure 3 ).  ...  The system is designed to let the user walk through without taking out the RFID-based ski pass (which is shown here for illustration).  ...

A trust-enhanced recommender system application

Paolo Avesani, Paolo Massa, Roberto Tiella
2005 Proceedings of the 2005 ACM symposium on Applied computing - SAC '05  
A blog oriented architecture collects user experiences on ski mountaineering and their opinions on other users.  ...  We also present an open information exchange architecture that makes use of Semantic Web formats to guarantee interoperability between ski mountaineering communities.  ...  Moleskiing exports the information about every user on the Web: the ski trip annotations in MSSA embedded in the user blog entries and the trust statements in the user FOAF file.  ...

Evidence of chaos in slab avalanching

Walter Rosenthal, Kelly Elder
2003 Cold Regions Science and Technology  
Cumulative crown size distributions over the entire mountain and on individual paths are scale invariant and appear to form a multifractal set; chaotic systems often exhibit such statistics.  ...  Three independent tests indicate the time series is deterministic: plateauing of the correlation dimension with increasing embedding dimension, the correlation dimension of the attractor compared against  ...  Acknowledgements We wish to thank Mammoth Mountain Ski Area and the Mammoth Mountain Ski Patrol for providing weather and avalanche records and for their continuing support of this research.  ...

Learning a physical activity classifier for a low-power embedded wrist-located device

Ricard Delgado-Gonzalo, Philippe Renevey, Adrian Tarniceriu, Jakub Parak, Mattia Bertschi
2018 2018 IEEE EMBS International Conference on Biomedical & Health Informatics (BHI)  
The overall system is designed for real-time execution and it is implemented in the commercial low-power System-on-Chips nRF51 and nRF52.  ...  The final precision achieved for the most important classes, (Rest, Walk, and Run), was of 96%, 94%, and 99% and it generalizes to compound activities such as XC skiing or Housework.  ...  Embedded implementation The classification algorithm was implemented for two different embedded platforms: the Nordic Semiconductor's nRF52832 and the nRF51822 from the same manufacturer.  ...

Sustainable tourism in mountainous regions [chapter]

K. Meyer-Cech, U. Pröbstl
2013 Tourism as a Challenge  
Trends of tourism in mountainous regions with their manifold economic, social and ecological impacts are dealt with in this paper using the Austrian Alps as an example, and evaluating ways to manage tourist  ...  The first section of this paper deals with the differences in research on tourism trends in Europe and North America concerning approaches and methods used.  ...  A recent example is the skiing region of Kitzbühel in Tyrol, where more than 30 communities with 241 skiing lifts, that cover 676 kilometres of slopes, and 172 mountain restaurants have joined forces.  ...

'Mountain resorts': origins and evolution

Andrzej Kowalczyk
2009 Turyzm  
The paper discusses the background for the emergence of such 'mountain resorts', their types and changes in their mode of operation.  ...  Only after some time were these areas was merged to form one system.  ...  Thereby, their very existence was embedded in psychological and social factors rather than curative ones.  ...
