uMove : a wholistic framework to design and implement ubiquitous computing systems supporting user's activity and situation

Bruegger, Pascal ; Hirsbrunner, Beat (Dir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Université de Fribourg, 2011.

This thesis presents a framework that offers tools for the design and the implementation of Ubiquitous computing systems supporting user motions, activities and situations. With the rapid development of context-aware mobile computing and sensor-based interaction, many new challenges come up, three of which are particularly addressed in this thesis. The first is the need for wholistic tools to...

UBIDEV: a homogeneous service framework for pervasive computing environments

Maffioletti, Sergio ; Hirsbrunner, Beat (Dir.) ; Courant, Michèle (Codir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Université de Fribourg, 2006 ; no 1528.

This dissertation studies the heterogeneity problem of pervasive computing system from the viewpoint of an infrastructure aiming to provide a service-oriented application model. From Distributed System passing through mobile computing, pervasive computing is presented as a step forward in ubiquitous availability of services and proliferation of interacting autonomous entities. To better...

Towards active network management with "Ecomobile", an ecosystem-inspired mobile agent middleware : design, implementation, simulation and application to optical networks

Rossier-Ramuz, Daniel ; Hirsbrunner, Beat (Dir.) ; Scheurer, Rudolf (Codir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Université de Fribourg, 2002 ; no 1392.

The future multi-layer optical networks based on wavelength division multiplexing technology will lead to the creation of new value-added optical services, which is bound to transform the traditional passive transport network into an active and intelligent transport layer. The successful deployment of these complex networking services and the possibility of subjecting them to a dynamic control,...
