Abstract

Guiding readers through the basics of these rapidly emerging networks to more advanced concepts and future expectations, Mobile Ad hoc Networks: Current Status and Future Trends identifies and examines the most pressing research issues in Mobile Ad hoc Networks (MANETs). Containing the contributions of leading researchers, industry professionals, and academics, this forward-looking reference provides an authoritative perspective of the state of the art in MANETs. The book includes surveys of recent publications that investigate key areas of interest such as limited resources and the mobility of mobile nodes. It considers routing, multicast, energy, security, channel assignment, and ensuring quality of service. Also suitable as a text for graduate students, the book is organized into three sections: Fundamentals of MANET Modeling and Simulation—Describes how MANETs operate and perform through simulations and models Communication Protocols of MANETs—Presents cutting-edge research on key issues, including MAC layer issues and routing in high mobility Future Networks Inspired By MANETs—Tackles open research issues and emerging trends Illustrating the role MANETs are likely to play in future networks, this book supplies the foundation and insight you will need to make your own contributions to the field. It includes coverage of routing protocols, modeling and simulations tools, intelligent optimization techniques to multicriteria routing, security issues in FHAMIPv6, connecting moving smart objects to the Internet, underwater sensor networks, wireless mesh network architecture and protocols, adaptive routing provision using Bayesian inference, and adaptive flow control in transport layer using genetic algorithms.

Abstract

This book argues for a theory of mobile mapping, a situated and spatial approach towards researching how everyday digital mobile media practices are bound up in global systems of knowledge and power. Drawing from literature in media studies and geography - and the work of Michel Foucault and Doreen Massey - it examines how geographical and historical material, social, and cultural conditions are embedded in the way in which contemporary (digital) cartographies are read, deployed, and engaged. This is explored through seventeen walking interviews in Hong Kong and Sydney, as potent discourses like cartographic reason continue to transform and weave through the world in ways that haunt mobile mapping and bring old conflicts into new media. In doing so, Mobile Mapping offers an interdisciplinary rethinking about how multiple translations of spatial knowledges between rational digital epistemologies and tacit ways of understanding space and experience might be conceptualized and researched.

Abstract

Der Einsatz mobiler Computer wie Smartphones für die Abarbeitung mobiler Geschäftsprozesse bringt neben großen Vorteilen auch spezifische Sicherheitsherausforderungen mit sich. Als ein Lösungsansatz hierfür wird ""ortsabhängige Zugriffskontrolle"" verfolgt. Die Grundidee dabei ist es, den aktuellen Aufenthaltsort des Nutzers für die Zugriffskontrollentscheidung auszuwerten. Zur Modellierung solcher Ortseinschränkungen wird eine auf UML-Aktivitätsdiagrammen aufbauende Notation eingeführt.

Abstract

Die vorliegende Arbeit zeigt Grundlagen der hybriden Antriebe mit dem Fokus auf die mobilen Arbeitsmaschinen und stellt eine Methodik zur Unterstützung des Entwicklungsprozesses vor. Die Methodik unterstützt einerseits durch eine definierte Vorgehensweise andererseits durch konkrete Werkzeuge. Am Beispiel einer Forstmaschine werden quasi-statische Abschätzungswerkzeuge vorgeführt und deren Vorhersagekraft durch den Vergleich mit dynamischen Simulationen bestimmt.

Abstract

« Toute l’œuvre proustienne est pleine de ces déplacements ; ils y tiennent une place au moins aussi importante que les souvenirs », écrivait Georges Poulet dans l’Espace proustien. Cet ouvrage se propose de faire des “mobiles”, les instruments du déplacement symptomatique, le point de départ d’une approche et d’une vision originales. Présenter une sorte de “revue” inédite, de “défilé” dans la rue - loin des salons - des personnages principaux de la Recherche... en calèche, Victoria, landau, chaise de poste, coupé, bicyclette, automobile... Se replacer, pour cela, dans le contexte de la Belle Epoque et de son atmosphère, poser par exemple sur Albertine, la cycliste de Balbec, le regard des polémistes, Sarah Bernhardt, Stéphane Mallarmé... Stigmatiser à travers ces métaphores sexuelles ou sociales toute une société en marche dans une double direction : l’homosexualité ou le déclassement, deux déclinaisons d’un renversement. Appréhender un art nouveau (autre forme de renversement) : celui d’une métamorphose continuelle engendrée, dans tous les domaines, par la fusion des genres, des images et des sons, prodigieusement créatrice, que le déplacement a activée (« les voitures aussi sont des Renoir »). Revivre chacune des grandes rencontres du héros-narrateur ; accompagner le « voyageur voilé » dans ses déplacements, révélations et émotions. Approcher ainsi la genèse de l’écriture de la Recherche du temps perdu de manière dynamique, en direct, en soulignant son ancrage dans une réalité mouvante. Prendre le parti de « l’Âge des choses » (un des trois titres que Proust en 1913 encore, envisageait de donner à l’un des trois volumes de la Recherche) pour, à l’instar du narrateur avec des choses humbles, accéder à une écriture, un style, une révélation, un plaisir aussi. Chemin faisant, intercepter, kaléidoscopique, l’histoire de la Recherche, de Combray aux grandes avenues parisiennes (côté Swann, côté Guermantes), de Balbec à Montjouvain (côté Sodome et Gomorrhe), et deviner, sous-jacente la vie vécue de son auteur.

Abstract

Daily activity sees data constantly flowing through cameras, the internet, satellites, radio frequencies, sensors, private appliances, cars, smartphones, tablets and the like. Among all the tools currently used, mobile devices, especially mobile phones, smartphones and tablets, are the most widespread, with their use becoming prevalent in everyday life within both developed and developing countries. Shopping, reading newspapers, participating in forums, projecting and completing surveys, communicating with friends and making new ones, filing tax returns and getting involved in politics are all examples of how ingrained mobile technology is to modern lifestyleMobile devices allow a wide range of heterogeneous activities and, as a result, have great potential in terms of the different types of data that can be collected. The use of mobile devices to collect, analyse and apply research data is explored here. This book focuses on the use of mobile devices in various research contexts, aiming to provide a detailed and updated knowledge on what is a comparatively new field of study. This is done considering different aspects: main methodological possibilities and issues; comparison and integration with more traditional survey modes or ways of participating in research; quality of collected data; use in commercial market research; representativeness of studies based only on the mobile-population; analysis of the current spread of mobile devices in several countries, and so on. Thus, the book provides interesting research findings from a wide range of countries and contexts. This book was developed in the framework of WebDataNet’s Task Force 19. WebDataNet, was created in 2009 by a group of researchers focusing on the discussion on data collection methods. Supported by the European Union programme for the Coordination of Science and Technology, WebDataNet has become a unique, multidisciplinary network that has brought together leading web-based data collection experts from several institutions, disciplines, and relevant backgrounds from more than 35 different countries.

Abstract

The moral economy of mobile phones implies a field of shifting relations among consumers, companies and state actors, all of whom have their own ideas about what is good, fair and just. These ideas inform the ways in which, for example, consumers acquire and use mobile phones; companies promote and sell voice, SMS and data subscriptions; and state actors regulate both everyday use of mobile phones and market activity around mobile phones. Ambivalence and disagreement about who owes what to whom is thus an integral feature of the moral economy of mobile phones. This volume identifies and evaluates the stakes at play in the moral economy of mobile phones. The six main chapters consider ethnographic cases from Papua New Guinea, Fiji and Vanuatu. The volume also includes a brief introduction with background information on the recent ‘digital revolution’ in these countries and two closing commentaries that reflect on the significance of the chapters for our understanding of global capitalism and the contemporary Pacific.
