Catroid also allows wireless control of external hardware such as Lego Mindstorms robots via Bluetooth, Bluetooth Arduino boards, as well as Parrot’s popular AR.Drone quadcopters via Wi-Fi. The project is inspired by Scratch, supported by Google, so far has 170 active developers, is composed of more than 30 subprojects (e.g., a subproject dealing with music composition using audio input sung by users into the microphone), and is growing rapidly. The visual language itself has been renamed to “Catrobat” as non-Android specific versions are under development. Current state (6/2012) of the Catroid system is open beta. 3 MBZC12-03 A study of Bluetooth application for remote controlling of mobile embedded systems 2012 DESCRIPTION This paper presents the development of an application for the operational system Android (Android OS) with the intent of controlling embedded systems via Bluetooth. The system to be operated is a tele-operated vehicle for remote sensoring and environmental damage detection. This prototype remote controlled vehicle was developed using the open-source development platform Arduino. This prototype has three wireless communication modules: one for Bluetooth communication, another for Zigbee communication, and the last one is a infra-red signal receiver. The results in laboratory tests and in real application field showed the prototype was successful, referring toits initial objectives, controlling locomotion system and high level human-machine interface. 4 MBZC12-04 Automatic Control of Irrigation Systems Aiming at High Energy efficiency in Rice Crops 2012 DESCRIPTION This paper presents a complete solution for the automated irrigation of rice crops using water level sensors, remote supervision system (SCADA) and wireless communication (GPRS). The proposed system is tested in four irrigation areas of small scale (10m x 20m). Ultrasonic sensors are used to measure the water level in the field. The control of the crop conditions is done by a dedicated controller, which eliminates the need for a computer on site. In addition, the controller has an interface that allows access to its parameters and also switching over to a standard operation in case of loss of communication with the supervisory system. The main result of this work is the efficient use of water and electricity on the farm .
  2. 2. PH: 8098 043 777 E-MAIL: Page 2 5 MBZC12-05 Centralized Heart Rate Monitoring Telemetry System Using ZigBee Wireless Sensor Network 2012 DESCRIPTION Recent advances in wireless communication standards and medical monitoring system have made it possible to effectively combine mesh networking with Non-Invasive medical application which is Pulse Oximeter in order to create reliable, large-scale wireless Network. This Mesh networking will enable doctors and nurses to observe and monitor a number of patients simultaneously from one location without being with the patient's physically. This project is mainly concerned about monitoring patient's condition simultaneously via Wireless Mesh Network. Wireless Mesh Network is a network that allows data transmitted to the node's nearest neighbours and it can be easily maintained as each node are self-configuring and self-healing. Data obtained from multiple pulse oximeters will be stored and processed using Arduino-Nano, then transmitted to a centralized unit, where the information for multiple oximeter will be displayed simultaneously. The efficiency of data transmission was monitored and verified. Mesh networking for pulse oximeter had been successfully design to show the active pulse oximeter. Besides, the data transmit and received by the XBee were accurate and it had been proved through several observations. 6 MBZC12-06 Cloud-Enabled Home Automation Gateway with the Support for UPnP Over IPv4/IPv6 and 6LoWPAN 2012 DESCRIPTION The most recent requests for interoperability between the different devices within a home automation system have brought IP-based protocols to the attention in this area. However, a number of hurdles need to be overcome so that the IP connection to home devices could become enabled, the most important being the requests for a large address space and low power consumption. In this paper we present a solution of a home gateway device with the ability to interact with IPv6-enabled home devices over 6LoWPAN, with regard to the increased address space and low power consumption, respectively. Additionally, the gateway supports the traditional IPv4 interfacing over WiFi and Ethernet. UPnP over IPv6 is fully enabled so that all the devices can be easily found by UPnP discovery from any node in the network. Finally, the gateway populates the discovered devices to a cloud server, which in turn enables a variety of web applications for home control to interact to home devices by using asynchronous API calls. 7 MBZC12-07 Context-Aware Platform with User Availability Estimation and Light-Based Announcements 2012 DESCRIPTION As the number of computer-based systems and consumer gadgets is growing, users are becoming increasingly overwhelmed by the requests for attention coming from this variety of devices. In addition, technology has quickened the pace of life and work to the extent that interaction between people has become more frequent. Dealing with both social and device-driven interruptions has become one of the important goals of context-aware systems of today. This paper proposes a context-aware platform that can help mitigate the negative effects of interruptions in human work and living. The platform uses a scalable set of sensors to estimate user availability in the home or office environment. This information is announced to possible interrupters (e.g., household members and software application) by using a web portal, lighting effects, or interfaces to a home automation system or any other interested entity in the local network. This paper presents several contributions to the field. Platform architecture is considered scalable enough to fit to a variety of today’s consumer devices and smart home systems. The experiments were conducted to show the effectiveness of the platform usage within a living room area, as opposed to the traditional office contexts where the availability tends to be easier to determine. The last contribution is related to the novel method and the evaluation of the use of lighting announcements of availability instead of the traditional inefficient busy flags.

Some vehicles are parked during the day at workplace parking garages and can be charged from the solar energy using Photo-Voltaic (PV) cell based charging facilities. The charging with solar energy helps to reduce the emissions from the power grid but increases the cost of charging. Moreover, it offers more flexibility to prepare for the emergence of new technologies (e.g., Vehicle-to-Grid, Vehicle-to- Building, and Smart Charging), which will become a reality in the near future. The simulation results provide a general overview of the impact of the proposed charging scenarios in terms of voltage profiles, peak demand, and charging cost.
