Title: HEMS Toolkit: A Toolkit for Constructing a Home Energy Management System
Authors: Tomoki Yoshihisa (Osaka University, JP), Naotaka Fujita and Masahiko Tsukamoto (Kobe University, JP)
Abstract: Increased global interest in environmental issues has led to demands for power consumption reduction of home electronics. Home energy management systems (HEMS) achieve this by monitoring and controlling the power consumption of home electronics. To reduce power consumption adequately, we need to flexibly customize HEMS based on user policies. However, conventional HEMS are completely systematized and it is difficult to customize them. Conventional HEMS lack versatility. In this paper, we develop a toolkit for constructing HEMS. Our developed toolkit adopts rule-based description for monitoring and controlling the power consumption of home electronics. Since we can easily customize HEMS by changing rules, our developed toolkit can provide versatility.
Title: An Open Platform for Distributed, Scalable and Adaptive Interactive Applications for CE Devices
Authors: Vlad Stirbu and Tapani Leppanen (Nokia, FI)
Abstract: This paper presents our platform for developing interactive applications for consumer electronic devices that have the ability to scale and adapt to the device look and feel. The platform provides a realization of the remote user interface metaphor, having the application logic on one device and the user interfaces exported on remote devices. As an example, we provide a demonstration of a multi-user distributed Texas Hold'em application.
Title: Demonstration of Synchronized Information-Sharing Method on Web
Authors: Shunsuke Kurumatani, Masashi Toyama, Eric Chen and Yoshiko Sueda (NTT, JP)
Abstract: There is undoubtedly an increase in the number of Web-connected devices, such as home appliances, handheld devices, and smartphones. Though Web applications are intended for information sharing among users, conventional Web technology does not sufficiently support synchronized sharing of information among various devices. We propose a method for synchronized sharing information among various Web-connected devices. We present an online bingo game system as an example of an information-sharing application. Members of the bingo game can shout "Bingo!" at the same time among all members from different environments.
Title: Real-Time Probing of End-to-End Capacity and Available Bandwidth in Heterogeneous Local Networks
Authors: Archi Delphinanto and Ton Koonen (COBRA, Eindhoven University of Technology, NL), Shuang Zhang (TNO Information and Communication Technology, NL), Frank den Hartog (TNO, NL)
Abstract: Current QoS solutions for home networks are inspired by Internet technologies and typically based on traffic classification and prioritization. They are not well adopted because they need to be supported by every device in the end-to-end path to be effective. Besides, their use still does not guarantee that enough bandwidth will be available between a server and a client. It is therefore preferable to diagnose a home network in real time before admitting a new flow. We demonstrate a new method which probes the end-to-end path capacity as well as the available bandwidth in a small-scale IP network. Its distinguishing features are the applicability to networks consisting of legacy devices and any mixture of wired, wireless, and no-new-wires links, in combination with fast convergence, high accuracy, and non-intrusiveness.
Title: Convergent Identity: Seamless OPENID Services for 3G Dongles Using SSL Enabled USIM Smart Cards
Authors: Pascal Urien (ENST, Paris, FR)
Abstract: This demonstration shows an innovative concept that introduces PKI for mobile operators. A commercial 3G dongle is equipped with an USIM module used for subscriber's authentication. The USIM embeds a tiny SSL stack written for java cards. The 3G modem delivers internet connectivity and realizes strong mutual SSL authentication providing, in the presented use case, seamless access to real OPENID services.

Title: Evidence Collection From Car Black Boxes Using Smartphones
Authors: ChulWha Hong, Truong Le, Kangsuk Chae and Souhwan Jung (Soongsil University, KR)
Abstract: This demonstration shows a process to collect critical video clips from car black boxes using smart phones. Critical video clips in the black box are hashed to provide data integrity before being transmitted to the police server. Without VANET infrastructure, smart phones are very useful communication media for car black boxes.
Title: Visualization and Control System for Wireless Network Using Augmented Reality Technology
Author: Hideki Shimada (Doshisha University, JP)
Abstract: There are various kinds of wireless network devices, such as cellular phone and wireless sensors, around us in a ubiquitous environment. Unlike a wired network, we cannot grasp the exact status of a wireless network in real space. Moreover, it is difficult to understand the relationships of connectivity intuitively, since network management software is used in a virtual two-dimensional space.
Title: Wireless Sensor Network Based on OCDMA for Closed Environments
Authors: Jesus Martin-Gonzalez (Universidad de Burgos, ES), Enrique Poves, Guillermo Campo-Jimenez an d, Francisco Lopez-Hernandez (Universidad Politecnica de Madrid, ES)
Abstract: An infrared optical wireless system is presented, consisting on autonomous remote nodes communicating with a central node. The network is designed for telecommand/telemetry purposes, comprising a large number of nodes at a low data rate . Simultaneous access is granted by using CDMA techniques, and an appropriate selection of the code family can also keep power consumption to a minimum.

Authors: Stefano Abbate (IMT Institute for advanced studies Lucca, IT), Marco Avvenuti and Alessio Vecchio (University of Pisa, IT)
Abstract: Run-time monitoring of energy consumption in wireless sensor networks is a necessary step for the production of energy efficient applications. The demo will show a software system that helps the developer to profile applications, based on TinyOS, in terms of energy consumption.
Title: Power Routing Switches Toward Energy-on-Demand Home Networking
Authors: Tomoki Shibata, Kazumi Sakai and Yasuo Okabe (Kyoto University, JP)
Abstract: An on-demand electric power supply architecture in home based on quality-aware routing is proposed. In the architecture power sources and powered devices send quality parameters by which they supply or consume electric power. The network itself chooses best matching of a source and a device, and makes reservation of a path. In this demonstration on-demand multi sources energy routing and snatching other devices' energy considering precedence on the proposed architecture with implemented routing switches are shown.
Title: Adaptive Network Services on Advanced Relay Nodes
Authors: Masayoshi Shimamura, Takeshi Ikenaga and Masato Tsuru (Kyushu Institute of Technology, JP)
Abstract: The explosive growth of usage with diversifying communication technologies and applications imposes the Internet to manage further scalability and diversity, which requires more adaptive and flexible sharing schemes of network resource. Especially when a number of distributed applications concurrently share the resource, efficacy on comprehensive usage of network, computation, and storage resources is needed to achieve a good information processing performance as a whole. In response to this problem, we have proposed a concept of adaptive network services enabled by advanced relay nodes. In this paper, we demonstrate the effectiveness of advanced relay processing, rather than simple IP forwarding, using a prototype implementation of advanced relay nodes.

Authors: Atsuo Inomata (NARA Institute of Science and Technology, JP), Hironobu Suzuki (Hironobu SUZUKI Office, Inc., JP), Yoshiaki Kitaguchi (Information Medeia Center, Kanazawa University, JP), Hiroyuki Ohno (Kanazawa University, JP)
Abstract: Recently there are many huge earthquakes, Tsunami, pandemic of new type virus and so on. For example, Japan is one of the most earthquake-prone countries in the world. People often fall in various unexpected situations. So we focus on some functions from the views of "Self-Help", "Mutual-Help" and "Public-Help" in various emergencies and crisis. In this demonstration we report two communication drills by our e-ARK device family. One is a broadcast communication to generic people by twitter. Another is a document management by X4iD.
