BLE-V-Monitor: How car batteries join the Internet of Things
#BLE #IoT #bluetooth #arduino #android
The Internet of Things (IoT) envisions a world where virtually everything is connected and able to communicate. Today, I want to present one such IoT application, namely, the BLE-V-Monitor: a battery voltage monitor for vehicels (cars, motorbikes). BLE-V-Monitor consists of an Arduino-based ...

Can get Google Glass now ... hm, well, not really :(

I have received a nice email from Google telling me that now I (or better we = our research project at University of Stuttgart) could purchase Google Glass:

"We're seeking new Explorers and we're opening up some spots in the Glass Explorer Program. Any adult in the US can become an Explorer by visiting our site and purchasing Glass ... including you! "

However, obviously I am not an adult in the US (come on Google, you should have known, or at least have an educated guess by looking at my email address or the country field in the registration form). So "including you" should be replaced by "excluding you" ... once again. 

Sad but true ... we could have really used Glass for nice research prototypes. Guess we have to wait for the international version of Glass ...

Paper on Automatic Indoor Mapping @ Percom 2014

Patrick and me, we just arrived back from Percom 2014 in Budapest where we presented our work on automatic indoor mapping using crowds of mobile users (I should also mention that this was joint work with many other great colleagues from University of Stuttgart coming from photogrammetry and distributed systems). 

I think, the results are quite impressive, showing that it is indeed possible to use crowds of mobile users to automatically create complete high-quality floor plans, by opportunistically collecting mobility traces and a novel technique using structural knowledge about buildings to fill uncovered "white spaces" and further improve accuracy. 

If you are interested in the details, here are the links to our paper:

Very good point Faraz! That's exactly where the structural building information comes into play. We assume we have knowledge about the possible sizes of rooms (encoded into an indoor grammar). Then traces give evidence, which room we actually have by defining constraints on possible room layouts (users cannot walk through walls, ...). This helps us to correct these kinds of errors.

SDN Tutorial @ Informatik 2014

If you have missed our tutorials on software-defined networking at DEBS 2013 and Middleware 2013, you have another chance now! We will give an SDN tutorial at Informatik 2014 here in Stuttgart, and would be very happy to welcome everyone interested in this big trend in networking.

Es kann nur einen geben ...

... der Geländewagen des Jahres wird: MB G-Klasse. Jahr kann man gleich mal durch Jahrzehnt ersetzen. "G" wie Gelände. Das sagt ja schon alles. 

Ich danke hiermit demjenigen bei Daimler, der den G davor bewahrt, aus dem Programm genommen zu werden!!! Sollte sich das ändern, starte ich eine Online-Petition zum Schutz des G!

Zu den SUVs fällt mir nichts ein, außer die Frage, welches Plastikteil fällt eigentlich zuerst ab, wenn man damit ins Gelände fährt? Siehe ab 2:40 :)

Glasse nicht Gasse. Danke an Google für das selbständige Ersetzen von Worten... mann mann. Ein ordentliches Korrekturprogramm hätte den Gag mit Glasse anders behoben. Hoffen wir mal das G steht nicht für Google :-)

SDN-MQ is a powerful and simple-to-use northbound interface for the OpenDaylight SDN controller. Find out how integrating a message-oriented middleware into OpenDaylight can simplify flow programming and allow for decoupling and horizontal scaling of control logic.

Turing Award for Distributed Systems research for Leslie Lamport

And for his famous Paxos paper, he will also receive the Nobel Prize in literature :)

Knowing that Einstein received the Nobel Price for the photoelectric effect rather than the theory of relativity, he could as well have received the Turing Award for TeX ;)

As Daimler aficionado, I am really happy to see the new Mercedes-Benz C Class :) Daimler really understood that it's not enough to build just a nice car. "Nice" is the kiss of death for a permium car. For a premium car, you have to literally see that it is a great car and why it is worth spending so much money. And looking at the interior of the new C Class, you definitely can see that! 

I admit that during the last years, I was not always too excited about every car with a star. But now I am very happy to see that Mercedes is on the right track! Oh, and by the way in the video from CES 2014, you can also see that Mercedes can implement nice gadgets.

But forget about the gadgets! If you like playing with Facebook more than driving your car, you have the wrong car! 
 
Class and style down to the very last detail. A closer look at the C-Class interior design.
