M2M, Sensor Web, Observations and Measurements

M4M or Measure 4 Measure, ever since Shakespeare's play with the same name we know, people can be mistaken for one another. A Duke (like the beloved Java mascot) claims to be a monk, the head of a dead pirate is presented to be that of the young hero. So can important information like Units of Measurement be misinterpreted. While humans reading 10°C, 10 C or 10 Degree Celsius, each of those could be interpreted and understood well enough. For M2M communication, unless a program is provided with a large glossary of alternate terms, only ONE of these would be acceptable.

Slides of the JCP EC F2F in January 2014 proposing the idea of a Units of Measurement JSR, recently approved as JSR 363: https://jcp.org/en/jsr/detail?id=363

  2. 2. What do these mishaps have in common? •Patriot Missile The cause was an inaccurate calculation of the time since boot due to a computer arithmetic error. •Ariane 5 Explosion Floating point number which a value was converted from a value greater than what would be represented by a 16 bit signed integer. • Christopher Columbus He miscalculated the circumference of Earth assuming a medieval Persian geographer he referred to had used Roman miles (4,856 ft.) instead of the 7,091 ft. Arabic mile, which is part of the reason he unexpectedly ended up in the Bahamas on October 12, 1492, and thought he had hit Asia. Whoops. 2 © 2007-2014 Creative Arts & Technologies, V2COM

  8. 8. Measurement Package • Namespace: org.osgi.util.measurement • SI only Unit Library “in the closet” • Unit Essentially an SI singleton holding relevant unit constants, too. • Measurement Represents a value with an error, a unit and a time-stamp. • State Groups a state name, value and timestamp. • Some very limited usage, e.g. by Automotive ► No further development by OSGi OSGi 8 © 2007-2014 Creative Arts & Technologies, V2COM
  9. 9. Mobile Sensor API • Namespace: javax.microediton.sensor.* • Focusing on single-device Sensors, but got a minimalistic Unit API “in the barn” • Unit Essentially an SI singleton holding relevant unit constants, too. JavaDoc: http://pandora.la/java/javadocs/sensor/javax/microedition/sensor/Unit.html • ChannelInfo Holding name, accuracy, data type,measurement ranges, scale and unit • MeasurementRange Range of possible values from minimum to maximum (J2ME style, e.g. no Generics) ► Dead Meat (few actual handsets, no vendors except Nokia still use it, nor does Java ME Embedded) JSR-256 9 © 2007-2014 Creative Arts & Technologies, V2COM
  10. 10. • Namespace: javax.measure.* • Only one interface and one abstract class • public interface Measurable<Q extends Quantity> • public abstract class Measure<V, Q extends Quantity> • Three sub-packages • quantity (holds dimensions like mass, length,…) • unit (holds the SI and NonSI units) • converter (holds unit converters) JSR-275 10 © 2007-2014 Creative Arts & Technologies, V2COM Units Specification

  13. 13. • Xively • Language bindings for Java/Android, Python or Ruby contain some support for Units of Measurement. Website: http://www.xively.com • OpenXC • Feels like modernized OSGi Measurement bundle. Offering only SI units by default, but a more sophisticated Unit, Measurement and Quantity concept somewhat similar and clearly inspired by Unit-API / JSR-275 Website: http://openxcplatform.com/ • CSS 3 • Mostly UI/rendering, but promises almost UCUM-like arithmetic and quantity-checking Website: http://www.w3.org/TR/css3-values/ • Unicode / ICU4J • Significant Unit support from CLDR 24 / ICU4J 52.x on, covering most of SI and other relevant units in at least 70 languages Website: http://site.icu-project.org/ Other Trends for Sensors | Measurement 13 © 2007-2014 Creative Arts & Technologies, V2COM
