Network proximity on web

This paper is devoted to context-aware computing. As the basic information about the context, we use information about surrounding wireless networks (Wi-Fi access points, Bluetooth nodes). The aim is to consider the use of this kind of information about network proximity directly in the mobile web applications.

INJOIT - call for papers

The International Journal of Open Information Technologies (INJOIT) is an all-electronic journal with the aim to bring the most recent and unpublished research and development results in the area of information technologies to the scientific and technical societies. Free, peer reviewed papers. English or Russian languages.

It is published by the OIT Lab (Open Information Technologies Lab, Faculty of Computational Mathematics and Cybernetics, Lomonosov Moscow State University).

M2M Software Platforms

Our new paper: Namiot, D., & Sneps-Sneppe, M. (2014). On M2M Software Platforms. International Journal of Open Information Technologies, 2(8), 29-33.

This paper provides an overview for existing and upcoming system software platforms for M2M applications. In this article we discuss system software models from the developer’s point of view, rather than network related aspects. The primary goal is to find the common and reusable aspects across existing models as well as discuss their possible coexistence. Can we extract the common elements for the different M2M software models? Are there some reusable patterns? What should developers and system architects pay attention to? These are the main issues addressed in this article.

Open Source Mobile Sensing

Our new paper: Namiot, Dmitry, and Manfred Sneps-Sneppe. "On Open Source Mobile Sensing." Internet of Things, Smart Spaces, and Next Generation Networks and Systems. Springer International Publishing, 2014. 82-94.

The paper discusses phone as a sensor model. For many applied tasks smart phones are an ideal platform for collecting and processing context-related data. The most popular example is, probably, computational social science. Phones can collect data for conducting various social researches about people’s social behavior. This paper presents an attempt to describe and categorize existing open source libraries for mobile sensing, describe architecture and design patterns as well as discover directions for the future development.

BDP landing page

An interesting idea - Appsites service creates landing pages for mobile applications based on the data in Google Play (App Store).

For example, we can take our BDP application, points service to its page in Google Play and automatically get this landing page for our application: Bluetooth Data Points

Our new paper: D. Namiot and M. Sneps-Sneppe "On software standards for smart cities: API or DPI"

This paper discusses the global unified standards for software products and existing approaches (de-facto standards). Using specific examples of interaction with Bluetooth Low Energy tags we compared existing approaches to the development and the proposed global standards (FI-WARE). Can a unified approach to the creation of services to cover all the possible use cases and scenarios for new services? The paper emphasizes the need to address the prevailing trends in the design to create a standard. Also, we highlight the critical importance of such a thing as the time to market for new applications and services developed according to the proposed standards.
