A service-oriented ZigBee gateway for smart environments
Furfari F., Girolami M., Lenzi S., Chessa S.
In the recent past Smart Environments, and in particular Smart Homes, have attracted the attention of many re- searchers and industrial vendors. In such environments, according to the Ambient Intelligence paradigm, heterogeneous de- vices may operate collectively using context information and intelligence that is usually hidden in the home networks. The networks of ZigBee devices play an important role in this scenario. However they require an easier interaction model with IP- based networks. This work presents an open source platform that seamlessly integrates ZigBee devices with applications run- ning on smart phones and other connected devices available at home. It can be deployed on low-cost devices, such as Plug- PC, and it exploits the OSGi execution environment to discover devices and to notify the smart home of new available ser- vices1.Source: ISTI Technical reports, 2014

Service discovery in mobile social networks
Girolami M., Chessa S., Basagni S., Furfari F.
We present a new service discovery algorithm, termed SIDEMAN, which considers human mobility for service dissemination and discovery. In particular, SIDEMAN takes advantage of mobile social networking characteristics, such as user membership to a restricted number of communities, and interest for similar services among users in the same community. We evaluated the performance of SIDEMAN via simulations in a scenario based on traces collected at the IEEE conference Infocom in 2006. Our algorithm has been compared to the social version of two popular data dissemination techniques, namely, flooding and gossiping. We have measured how proactive an algorithm is in distributing services of interest (Recall), how many services are already with a user when they are needed (Gain), the energy cost necessary for service discovery, and the time needed to reply to a service query. Our results show that SIDEMAN obtains perfect Recall and a Gain that is always comparable to that of the other algorithms. Furthermore, most services are retrieved in reasonable time and at a remarkably lower energy cost than that of the flooding and gossiping-based solutions.Source: ISTI Technical reports, 2014

make it ReAAL - Interoperability and customization requirements
Girolami M., Lenzi S., Potortì F., Ferro E., Gotta A., Riolo G., Bruno J., Kung A., Raither B., Navajo J. C., Fides A., Visser F., Weerdenburg W., Jiménez J., Graf H., Ausen D., Hogfeldt L., Pasmans R.
The goal of this deliverable is to report the analysis performed by each Pilot about the interoperability requirements on their applications, using an open platform and the possible customization of the pilots applications. The deliverable is therefore structured as follows: A general introduction on interoperability is provided. Then a model description is provided in order to have the same approach for all the pilots; so that an analysis of the similarities and the differences between pilots can be made. Then each application of pilots is designed using this model in order to report on the possible points of interoperability and flexibility of each application.Source: Project report, ReAAL, Deliverable D1.2, 2014

Multi-tenancy aware ambient assisted living platforms in the cloud
Stocklow C., Medrano A., Fides Valero A., Girolami M., Lenzi S.
Over the last years, Ambient Assisted Living (AAL) tech- nologies have seen a remarkable grow up. Although this field has been researched for many years and different projects have investigated and proposed AAL platforms with a rich set of functionality, the current market situation still favors isolated solutions. A possible reason is that those platforms are too complex to be easily setup and maintained. Also, resource sharing is possible between services, but not between platforms. A promising alternative is provided by the cloud computing approach which integrates common services in a shared way. Thus, we propose to use an AAL platform as Platform-as-a-Service in the cloud to offer all functionalities of AAL platforms to services in the cloud while being able to connect to platforms running in each home. We discuss different aspects of this approach and propose a simple ver- ification scenario. An exemplary adoption is discussed for the platform universAAL.Source: ISTI Technical reports, 2014

GiraffPlus - Third Prototype of sensors, Giraff platform and network system report
Palumbo F., La Rosa D., Potortì F., Ferro E., Girolami M., Stimec A., Lindén M., Koshmak G., Odontidou E., Gonzales J.
This document reports on the third prototype of the system that is currently deployed in all test sites. The third prototype at month 30 provides the final version of the network system and the second and final version of the Giraff platform. A middleware solution helps to integrate the software components developed by the WP3 and WP4 and enhanced Giraff platform with safer and semi-autonomous mobility features. The prototype includes the Giraff robot, the Look4Myhealth kit, the monitoring sensors from Tunstall, additional environmental sensors, a physiological sensor for pulse oximetry measurements based on Android, the context recognition and configuration planning modules, and the remote storage and repository to collect user data. Additionally a new wearable sensor containing an inertial system is also introduced. It can be carried out by the primary user and used to give additional information regarding the user activities. The final version of the middleware is presented and the semi-autonomy features for the Giraff robot are described.Source: Project report, GiraffPlus, Deliverable D2.3, 2014

Support and training periodical report
Fides A., Lenzi S., Girolami M., Tazari S.
This deliverable follows the same structure of D2.2, since it is an update on the status of the activities defined therein: Platform support framework, Training framework, and Open source strategy. The updates on Platform support framework report barely no changes in the framework itself. Then a set of statistics of the status of all the different issue trackers is followed by a list of all issues opened within the period of analysis of this version. Updates on the Training framework itself are few as well, but these are followed by a list of all available sources of training materials set up by different tasks in ReAAL. A short list of events where coaching was provided is also available. Finally the activities to establish the Open Source community around the platform are described, including the next steps to follow in the plan.Source: Project report, ReAAL, 2014
