Manfred Tscheligi, Managing Director of CURE (Center for usability research & engineering) and coordinator of the project, stressed the aim of the project: the more attacks, the Internet of things to trust issues become more important. The uTRUSTit project will provide those information users available, they need to make decisions without being a security expert or fear of uncertain risks”. Six European research partners multidisciplinary research the uTRUSTit Consortium consists of experienced researchers and practitioners from six different European countries and can rely on simulation and Usablity laboratories within the framework of the project. The project is coordinated by the Austrian non-University Research Center CURE. “UTRUSTit explores CURE when and how users of the Internet of things” trust and adjusts the involvement of users in the development of response models, which eventually also be evaluated in field trials of CURE.

The Norwegian Computing Center collects and analyzes the user needs with special reference to users with physical disabilities. The Research Institute developed with the model representing the user feedback about the current state of security. The virtual reality Center production engineering (VRCP) of the Technical University of Chemnitz Department carries out the development and preparation of virtual reality simulations. The simulations allow you to quickly integrate the feedback of the users in the design process. The Hungarian IT-security company SEARCH-LAB examines the impact of safety ads of the Internet of things and concentrating on the human perception of trust and developed methods that determine the trustworthiness of the security of a system.

Sweden connectivity has specialized in Internet-of-things-technology and developed in the uTRUSTit project of the technology for the evaluation of scenarios. The Faculty of law of the Catholic University of Leiden examines the legal challenges in terms of security and Privatheitsaspekte of the Internet of things. total cost: 3.1 million euro EU funding: 2,4 million euro duration: 36 months (September 2010 August 2013) not to publish detailed information received by the project partners: CURE Center for usability research and engineering (Austria) CURE: CURE is a Vienna-based independent research organization with Europe’s leading expertise in the fields of usability engineering, Human computer interaction, user interface design, user experience research and user-centered design. A major concern of CURE is to bridge the gap between research and practice. Approximately 35 researchers and researchers from different disciplines such as computer science, psychology, sociology, pedagogy and the Pforzheim in projects are working at CURE. CURE has one of the world’s most advanced usability and user experience lab. The CURE research include the development and use of User experience engineering methods, research into factors of use of and methodological transfer to design optimization.


Already thinking about tomorrow – the Internet of things is a reality many technical objects are already equipped with an own intelligence and can be networked with each other. The exact location is available, in addition a number of innovative applications and business models emerge. What was previously exclusive solutions, is accessible through a low-cost technology for widths. By the applied satellite navigation, precise positioning and mobile information technology of new possibilities, for example, in the areas of safety, environmental, transport and logistics, transport and tourism. We introduce us as in-GmbH with our know-how in this process. Together with partners from industry and research, we generate ideas for future applications and implement them in professional solutions.

An opportunity to participate in this exciting dialogue emerges on October 26, 2009, from 10 to 17:30 in the Haus der Wirtschaft in Stuttgart. There are safety, inter alia in the Forum” new applications in security-related areas such as building security, freight transport and to life-saving emergency situations elaborated and discussed. Target groups of the full day event are entrepreneurs, researchers, business sponsors, representatives of associations, etc., as well as all persons with an interest in applied satellite navigation and mobile IT.

Voice control and touchscreen will be soon more important than keyboard and mouse. Speech recognition systems are today very reliable and are successfully used in modern cars.” A reduction in the complexity of the network and a democratization of the Internet access is achieved through personalized, adaptive and trusted electronic companion. “Become the annoying first steps of identification of relevant information by means of machine-to-machine communication with individual instances in the Internet of things ‘ negotiate ‘, says Dippelhofer. However, no technological dependencies are likely to occur, which lead to a loss of self-determination. Smart Wizard will change the world of shopping. This symbiotic link of a new technology and a new generation of mobile devices will give dramatic impulse shopping experience in the retail. Dressing rooms soon with digital will be Touchscreens be equipped shopping Assistant and voice-activated kiosks will allow also customers, to select clothing and accessories as a supplement or replacement for the already provided wardrobe”, runs IBM. The last mile in the retail sector will look totally different in a few years.

The classical shop must be no longer part of the distribution network. As a consumer, I would like to take only the most essential article in place. What’s beyond that should be brought me home. Rather than travel far to get me into a great range, I will go to a showroom, where it shows me the whole range – real or virtual”, says Moshe Rappaport, IBM expert on technology and innovation trends. It should be in stock no longer all items in the store. It totally sufficient to be able to show everything. In the foreground, but the service is no longer available the products.

We make dresses as an example. I must have not all sizes in all colors. Can I try in an electronic dressing room in all variations and make my buying decision. Do I get after my shopping trip back into their own home, waiting for the package already on me and I can attract the clothing”, so the views of Rappaport.

Internet Of Things: Between Blah-tsunami And Meaningful Applications

Logistics industry benefits from products with intelligent memory Saarbrucken/Hanover, Germany, March 18, 2009 – a consortium under the leadership of the German Research Center for artificial intelligence is committed to the task, to develop products with memory. The project is called semantic product memory\”(SemProM). The researchers describe some scenarios where writing diary products could be used, forget about a shopping Assistant for an old lady, who is a little scatterbrained and sometimes something. Merk-enabled things to remedy this. If Grandma doesn’t remember what she wanted, her clever Rollator will meet future purchasing decisions. Products should know soon, she owns and what they all have experienced in this way for example, product pirates to confront’, so technology review blogger Peter Glaser.

The desolate touch of inorganic, under which most objects had to suffer so far might be different a kind of intelligence, the us as a new,. diverse useful micro-machine environment to surround. This touches me a notion of murmuring box rows at the supermarket, communicates a noise like a well-stocked restaurant, in between a few judicious dowels in the electrical Department is already too much me. \”Now things should be capable of expressing and I mean not just a peeping sensor I see to flood a blah tsunami on us\”, Gandhi feared. The logistical advantages of the Internet of things are indisputable, because companies can only manage what you can measure also. This principle simple in principle presents itself often in practice as a problem. If is about a retailer not in the position to measure the level of its shelves, then he won’t be able, to increase the availability of its merchandise in the store: so lose up to eight percent of sales by so-called out-of-stock situations (OOS). With the RFID wireless technology get first information systems Eyes\”and ears\” and ability to the low cost measurement of their environment.

Intelligent Products Instead Of Waiting Loops

With the Internet of things, new worlds of service may arise in five years expects TrendONE Chief Nils Muller service innovations, which can lead to an end of the hotline hold Nuremberg -. This is at least his thesis, which he will present in October as one of the keynote speakers of the specialist Congress of Voice days plus in Nuremberg. We talk a lot about the Outernet currently. In the Outernet blend products and services in one intelligent unit, which is perceived by customers as a brand experience. The Internet virtually exploded from the computer in the real world. Especially on products that we use every day.

A BMW will be connected directly to the Internet – and is possible yes even now with the BMW ConnectedDrive. While sitting in the car, push a button and say: I’m looking for a three-star restaurant, where I can eat fish excellent.’ And then you get a reply directly. This is the Outernet: you must start at all no computer, but the product itself, in this case the car is directly connected to the Internet. Be so in the future “about the Internet of things all Internet-capable products”, explains Muller. The philosopher Peter Koslowski talks about a revolution of the world of things, if the silence of the object world is overcome.

According to Muller, new service worlds arise thereby. If washing machines, coffee vending machines, cars and even food are networked, hybrid products that can be directly linked with services arise. Each product can get a direct link to the customer service, feedback, communication, and dialogue. Kapoor’s capacity for dialogue describes the world as Transpondenkonnen”: there are possible although no answers to any questions, but things could give feedback on clearly formulated questions. So far, the human-to-human contact dominated for services. The Internet of things we experience a human product interaction”, says Muller.

Division Hardware

Now in principle, the clock frequency as the CPU speed computer hardware part 9: what we know makes the CPU. But who determines when the next command can be processed? So that no mess is created, everything runs within the CPU synchronized with a predetermined frequency. The clock determines when a new command can be edited. That is, in turn, that no command (or part of a complex command) may take longer than this clock cycle. The first IBM PC in the early 1990s, called in the 7th part of this article series, had a clock rate of 5MHz. Now, that sounds like not too much processing power. If you however clear, what means this number, the thing looks different.

It means that the processor is above five million cycles per second and can handle as many (simple) commands during this time. At one GHz, there are already a billion instructions per second. Of course, there are not only these simple commands, which can be handled completely within a bar. In accordance with part 5 of the article can you imagine that an addition of binary numbers is easier than E.g. a Division. These commands are divided then into multiple clock cycles to unnecessarily delay the faster-working commands.

The clock rates were faster in the early days of PC development. Later, there was a veritable race to higher clock rates among the chip manufacturers. A few years after the turn of the Millennium but got in trouble to leave this rapid development. Including simple physical reasons. Another problem is also that so much of the CPUs was screwed, now entirely different components can slow down the system. While the CPU from 5 MHz to 3 GHz today was clocked, which is in this case an increase of the 600, E.g. the memory became only a fraction faster. Also hard drives were bigger brakes of a PC. “So, that meant that CPUs of but enough power” had, but some not could use these, because they are waiting for other components had to. “A solution to the problem is the parallelization so that multiple commands simultaneously in various pipelines” can be edited. This is but too much in detail. The next article will rotate to a different solution to this problem: the cache memory.

Virtualization is the omnipresent mantra of presumptive has in recent years belongs to every IT department or is informed. LONDON, April 6, 2011 – virtualization is the omnipresent mantra, the presumptive has in recent years belongs to every IT department or is informed. “The trend is quite arrived, and know that it is only a matter of time before the management in the neck sits you in your IT strategy and asks questions like: this cloud backup thing kling well, why can we not just do that?” To exceed the whole thing yet, you must at the same time still server upgrade, data migration, never ending warm fuzzy calls to the helpdesk and a myriad of other things settle, the solution of which is usually a thankless task. The introduction of virtualization of throughout IT infrastructure is definitely not something that should be taken lightly. It would to it shortly and certainly not in conclusion to sum up, include the following: the decision. “to which devices be virtualized (in whole or in part) the decision on the hardware / software requirements, based on the virtual platform, migrate to you, such as Hyper-V”, VMware or Xenapp “building the platform to start with some servers/workstations and thorough testing – performance and resource consumption, of course, building a suitable backup in case of redundancy/accidents and establishment tools for monitoring and correction of performance loss talk the benefits for yourself: Hardware reduction, central management, operational savings and even benefits for the environment, less consumption of energy (we could call it lovingly hardware pollution it). The impact of the implementation of a virtual environment are mindful. But what are the negative aspects? Each source within a virtual platform is shared, in particular the underlying hardware (CPU, storage, etc.). The virtual machines in the data provider are other guests, the resources at unaware, share same database operator, which could lead to a competitive situation between the guest machines if such common tasks as AV scans or defragmentation at the same time on all machines be performed.

Hewlett Packard Printer Tips

How to store toner cartridges should be stored in a special sealed packaging. We can not allow the cartridge was kept under direct sunlight and at temperatures above 40 C. It is also desirable store it in places with a sharp drop in temperature and humidity. Once you use the cartridge in any case, do not shake it! How to prolong the life of the printer Hewlett Packard Do not forget some important rules observance of which will significantly increase the life of your printer. Your printer should be located in well-ventilated room. The distance from the printer to any article must be at least 10-15 cm Try to ventilation openings on the printer had not been closed, as superheat affects the work of any printer. Make timely prevention of the printer (lubrication, wear identification at an early stage).

For each printer in the data sheet specifies the maximum value of printed pages per month, do not exceed this number as peak loads lead to a rapid deterioration of your printera.Staraytes not use of previously printed pages. Once you use the cartridge in any case it does not shake, as this may damage the printer! If you are using for printing drafts, then inspects them, as the availability of such items as paper clips, strap on stiplera and other items can cause damage to the main site printer – thermo. If the printer does not remove from him the power wire and connect the printer to your computer. Try not to have a printer next to flowers and other plants. Before moving the printer try to make it without a cartridge.

Pro Netbook

In early 2007, Asus demonstrated one of the first netbook – Eee pc, has created a new undoubted interest from buyers, and manufacturers of other brands of laptops. October 15, 2007 Intel has made a declaration on the development of new Diamondville processor designed for netbooks. Summer of 2008, Intel has shown the world its processors Atom, which are now found in most netbooks. The financial crisis has made notebooks more attractive – the purchase ability decreased, and these are available on price as a device adapted for the Internet and office applications, great falling well for everyday tasks, come at an opportune moment. Netbooks which can be found on sale, mostly similar in their characteristics – cpu Intel Atom 1.6 GHz, ram 1024 mb, 1024×600 display expansion and the diagonal of 10 inches. But there are differences, attention should focus on that.

First, in netbooks put to different hard drives – it can be solid-state drive on the 8-16 gb hdd, or is it a volume of 80-160 gb. ssd cheaper than conventional drives, but it is worth considering whether you have enough of 8 or 16 gigabytes. The second major difference between notebooks, is operating system. Usually, there are two options – either Linux, or Windows xp. Although fans of Windows xp do not need to lose sight of the fact that this os can be installed independently. Just remember that the built-in optical drive for the netbook is not – and so the installation will be a little more complicated.

Novelties Electronics Conquer The World

The ever-expanding range of products from manufacturers in 2010, the emergence of new products in the electronics market, can make a prediction that consumer preferences are becoming diversified. Buyers tend to purchase it branded products, which is announced in advance and presents well-known companies at the highest level. Held the previous week, the international exhibition Computex 2010 in Taipei, has identified has produced numerous new products from renowned companies, which promise to become bestsellers in the current and next year. Graphics on the stand of the company Zotac, characterized by new qualitative characteristics. Attracted visitors' attention the latest boosters from companies with good architecture.

Models Zotac GeForce gtx 470, Zotac GeForce gtx 465 are equipped with coolers, which corresponds to the reference samples available. During the fall of temperature is responsible exclusively designed system of air active cooling, which has copper heatpipes and copper base. The exhibition attracted special attention to electronic devices for reading books. Company Digital Box, which is at the forefront of electronic sales of new products, including those for reading electronic books, offering its customers the best examples of these products. At Computex 2010 was presented to the new device e-Magazine, which was announced in advance Media. The unit is equipped with 13-inch screen and touch panel adapted to input handwritten text. Device has the characteristics of electronic color paper to maintain the image is not necessary use of electricity. Reading like the reading process with plain paper. Chinese and Singaporean producers also showcased many new products for Democratic prices, and the assurances developers, the Chinese model of high quality and excellent performance even with long-term, continuous operation.
