Making the intelligent workspace a reality

“Our plan is to have ‘the’ operating system for buildings.” So says Richard Green, CEO of the newly-established Cambridge (UK) start-up Ubisense, about his company’s revolutionary new technology for locating staff within the workspace environment.

Green is one of the five entrepreneurs who founded the company in May 2002, and who have since seen their company more than double in size and rapidly establish a client-base in Europe, the US and the Far East. “Basically, Ubisense make

Trust me, I’m a machine

An EU computer science project hopes to make the uncertainty attached to the pervasive computing future a lot more secure through establishing trust.

Using the cost-benefit function at the heart of risk analysis, the IST programme-funded SECURE project developed software to integrate the very subjective, human concept of trust into computers, PDAs, mobile ’phones and other network devices.

Pervasive computing is a steadily emerging reality. Mobile phones and PDAs ar

Users of digital music sharing system judge others by their playlists

Co-workers sharing digital music in the workplace via Apple Computer’s popular iTunes® software form impressions of each other based on their musical libraries, according to a new study by human-computer interaction researchers.

Employees in a mid-sized U.S. company reported that they consciously worked to portray themselves in certain ways through the collections of music they shared with co-workers, some of whom they barely knew. Sometimes their self-portrayals were misread by

Bar-Code For Explosives

Barely visible dust layer in the place of explosion would tell specialists where and when the explosive was produced. To this end, the dust should be preliminarily marked up in the way suggested by Russian researchers. The project was sponsored by the International Science and Technology Center.

When investigating the locus delicti after the explosion the experts face a significant problem. They can determine with high probability the kind and capacity of explosive device used

ADSL2+ Chip from Infineon Sets New Standards for Power Consumption and System Costs

The German semiconductor manufacturer Infineon Technologies AG has introduced the world’s smallest and most economical chip for “ADSL2+” – the DSL data network of the future. This chip enables telecommunications companies to boost the number of super-high-speed DSL connections that they offer to their customers by approximately one third – without additional investments for cooling or for power supply and without changing cabinet sizes. With ADSL2+, which is expected to be launched as a service

Infineon Launches Ultra-Low Power ADSL2+ Chipset to Increase Efficiency: Industry`s First Class D-based Design

Cuts Power Consumption and Footprint by One Third

Infineon Technologies AG (FSE/NYSE: IFX), a leading supplier of broadband access semiconductor solutions, today launched GEMINAX PRO, the industry’s highest-integration and lowest-power ADSL2+ chipset. Consisting of a 16-channel ADSL2+ Digital Front End (DFE) and a 4-channel Analog Front End (AFE), with integrated low-power Class D line drivers, the GEMINAX PRO chipset reduces power dissipation, footprint and overall system cost
