Download or read book Real Time Database Systems written by Kam-Yiu Lam and published by Springer Science & Business Media. This book was released on 2000-11-30 with total page 289 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: In recent years, tremendous research has been devoted to the design of database systems for real-time applications, called real-time database systems (RTDBS), where transactions are associated with deadlines on their completion times, and some of the data objects in the database are associated with temporal constraints on their validity. Examples of important applications of RTDBS include stock trading systems, navigation systems and computer integrated manufacturing. Different transaction scheduling algorithms and concurrency control protocols have been proposed to satisfy transaction timing data temporal constraints. Other design issues important to the performance of a RTDBS are buffer management, index accesses and I/O scheduling. Real-Time Database Systems: Architecture and Techniques summarizes important research results in this area, and serves as an excellent reference for practitioners, researchers and educators of real-time systems and database systems.

Download or read book Sensor Applications Experimentation and Logistics written by Nikos Komninos and published by Springer. This book was released on 2010-02-16 with total page 196 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) are envisioned to enable a variety of applications including environmental monitoring, building and plant automation, homeland se- rity and healthcare. It has been argued that one of the key characteristics of sensor networks is that they are tightly coupled with the applications running on top of them. Although WSNs have been an active area of research for over a decade, real world sensor network deployments have not yet found their way to widespread adoption. The experience gained and lessons learned during the initial attempts to deploy WSNs and implement various sensor network applications are very valuable for the - vancement of this technology. Recognizing the need of a conference dedicated to practical aspects of WSN p- taining to their employment in a plethora of applications, ICST launched SENSAPPEAL as a yearly event whose first edition took place in September 2009 at the Athens Information Technology campus in the outskirts of Athens, Greece.
