  • Designing Calm and Non-intrusive Ambient Assisted Living System for
           Monitoring Nighttime Wanderings
    • Authors: Robert Radziszewski, Hubert NGANKAM Kenfack, Vincent Grégoire, Dominique Lorrain, Hélène Pigot, Sylvain Giroux
      First page: 114
      Abstract: International Journal of Pervasive Computing and Communications, Volume 13, Issue 2, June 2017.
      Purpose The Assistive living technologies provide support for specific activities transforming a home into a smart home. In this article, we present how to design, implement, deploy and install a personalized ambient support system for elderly suffering from Alzheimer's Disease and nighttime wandering Design/methodology/approach Our intervention proceeds in two phases. During the monitoring phase, the system determines the person with Alzheimer disease (AD) profile based on nighttime routines. Data are gathered from sensors dispatched in the smart home, coupled with physiological data obtained from worn sensors. Data are then classified to determine engine rules that will provide assistance to the resident to satisfy his needs. During the second phase, smart assistance is provided to the person via environmental cues by triggering rules based on the person’s habits and the activities occurring during night. Findings architecture of a non-intrusive system that integrates heterogeneous technologies to provide a calm environment during night and limiting wandering periods. Practical implications Our goal is to help people age well at home as long as possible and recover a regular circadian cycle while providing more comfort to the caregiver. Originality/value Our system offers a calm and personalized environment with music and visual icons to soothe the person with Alzheimer’s disease and encourage him to go back to bed. It is installed at the Alzheimer's home using wireless technologies.

  • Automatic fight detection in surveillance videos
    • Authors: Eugene Yujun Fu, Hong Va Leong, Grace Ngai, Stephen C.F. Chan

      Abstract: International Journal of Pervasive Computing and Communications, Volume 13, Issue 2, June 2017.
      Purpose Social signal processing under affective computing aims at recognizing and extracting useful human social interaction patterns. Fight is a common social interaction in real life. A fight detection system finds wide applications. This paper aims at detecting fights in a natural and low cost manner. Design/methodology/approach Research works on fight detection are often based on visual features, demanding substantive computation and good video quality. In this paper, the authors propose an approach to detect fight events through motion analysis. Most existing works evaluated their algorithms on public datasets manifesting simulated fights, where the fights are acted by actors. To evaluate on real fights, the authors collect videos involving real fights to form a dataset. Based on the two types of datasets, the authors evaluated their the performance of their motion signal analysis algorithm, which is then compared with the state-of-the-art approach based on MoSIFT descriptors with Bag-of-Words mechanism, and basic motion signal analysis with Bag-of-Words. Findings Our experimental results indicate the proposed approach accurately detect fights in real scenarios, better than the performance of MoSIFT approach. Originality/value By collecting and annotating real surveillance videos containing real fight events, augmenting with well-known datasets, the authors proposed, implemented and evaluated a low computation approach, comparing with the state of the art approach. The authors uncovered some fundamental differences between real and simulated fights and initiated a new study in discriminating real against simulated fight events, with very good performance.

  • A framework for unsupervised change detection in activity recognition
    • Authors: Sulaimon Adebayo Bashir, Andrei Petrovski, Daniel Doolan
      First page: 157
      Abstract: International Journal of Pervasive Computing and Communications, Volume 13, Issue 2, June 2017.
      Purpose This paper developed a change detection technique for activity recognition model. The approach aims to detect the changes in the initial accuracy of the model after training and when the model is deployed for recognizing new unseen activities without access to the ground truth. The changes between the two sessions may occur because of differences in sensor placement, orientation and user characteristics such as age and gender. However, many of the existing approaches for model adaptation in activity recognition are blind methods because they continuously adapt the recognition model without explicit detection of changes in the model performance. Design/methodology/approach The approach determines the variation between reference activity data belonging to different classes and newly classified unseen data. If there is coherency between the data, it means the model is correctly classifying the instances otherwise a significant variation indicates wrong instances are being classified to the class. Thus, the approach is formulated as a two level architectural frameworks comprising of the off-line phase and the online phase. The off-line phase extracts of Shewart Chart change parameters from the training dataset. The online phase performs classification of new samples and the detection of the changes in each class of activity present in the dataset by using the change parameters computed earlier. Findings The approach is evaluated using real activity recognition dataset. The results show that there are consistent detections that correlate with the error rate of the model. Originality/value The developed approach does not employ ground truth in other to detect classifier performance degradation. Rather it used a data discrimination method and a base classifier to detect the changes by using the parameters computed from the reference data of each class to discriminate outliers in the new data being classified to the same class. The approach is the first method to the best of our knowledge that addresses the problem of detecting within-user and cross-user variations that lead to concept drift in activity recognition. The approach is also the first to employ statistical process control method for change detection in activity recognition with a robust integrated framework that seamlessly detects variations in the underlying model performance.

    • Authors: Christoph Ernst, Andreas Mladenow, Christine Strauss
      First page: 176
      Abstract: International Journal of Pervasive Computing and Communications, Volume 13, Issue 2, June 2017.
      Purpose Emergency managers face coordinative challenges that require a high degree of mobility, flexibility and the ability to interpret heterogeneous, location-dependent information of various sources and quality. Recent ICT-driven developments like crowdsourcing or social networks open up new organizational possibilities for emergency managers. In order to make quick but solid decisions, and improve the coordination of activities performed by crowdsourcees during disaster response, we suggest to use collaborative features from crowdsourcing and inherent availability of resources from social network effects. Design/methodology/approach This paper is part of an ongoing research project in the field of crowdsourcing. It represents conceptual work that builds on relevant literature. In this paper the idea of considering collaboration and crowdsourcing as drivers for flexibility in the design of business processes in the context of emergency management is prepared, the meaning of location-dependent tasks for volunteers is investigated, and the added value of social network effects is substantiated. Findings In terms of emergency management, the paper sheds light on what emergency managers may consider when coordinating activities performed by volunteers and how they may benefit from social network effects. Furthermore, it is shown how they can exploit information using collaboration-based and tournament-like crowdsourcing, how they can benefit from invoking additional resources using weak ties from social networks, and how visualization of information may support decision-making. Practical implications Exemplary applications to exploit crowdsourcing and social network effects to support improvisation and to respond flexibly in disaster response are given. Originality/value This paper suggests novel collaborative approaches to support emergency managers in their decision-making. Based on social network analysis the value of weak ties is elaborated, and based on a taxonomy from crowdsourcing distinct collaborative alternatives are developed and proposed for the application in emergency management.

  • A passive method for privacy protection in the perceptual layer
    • Authors: XIAOYU LI, Osamu Yoshie, Daoping Huang
      First page: 194
      Abstract: International Journal of Pervasive Computing and Communications, Volume 13, Issue 2, June 2017.
      Purpose The purpose of this paper is to detect the existence of unknown wireless devices which could result negative means to the privacy. The perceptual layer of IoTs suffers the most significant privacy disclosing because of limited hardware resources, huge quantity and wide varieties of sensing equipment. Determining whether there are unknown wireless devices in the communicating environment is an effective method to implement the privacy protection for the perceptual layer of IoTs. Design/methodology/approach The authors use Horizontal Hierarchy Slicing (HHS) algorithm to extract the morphology feature of signals. Meanwhile, Partitioning Around Medoids (PAM) algorithm is used to cluster the HHS curves and Agglomerative Hierarchical Clustering (AHC) algorithm is utilized to distinguish final results. Link Quality Indicator (LQI) data are chosen as the network parameters in our research. Findings Nowadays data encryption and anonymization are the most common methods to protect private information for the perceptual layer of IoTs. However, these efforts are ineffective to avoid privacy disclosure if the communication environment exists unknown wireless nodes which could be malicious devices. How to detect these unknown wireless devices in the communication environment is a valuable topic in the further research. Originality/value The authors derive an innovative and passive unknown wireless devices detection (UD) method based on the Mathematical Morphology (MM) and machine learning algorithms to detect the existence of unknown wireless devices which could result negative means to the privacy. The simulation results show their effectiveness in privacy protection.

    • Authors: Muzna Zafar, Kashif Zia, Dinesh Kumar Saini, Arshad Muhammad, Alois Ferscha
      First page: 211
      Abstract: International Journal of Pervasive Computing and Communications, Volume 13, Issue 2, June 2017.
      Purpose It is witnessed that many incidents of crowd evacuation have resulted in catastrophic results, claiming lives of hundreds of people. Most of these incidents were result of localized herding that eventually turned into global panic. Many crowd evacuation models have been proposed with different aspects of interests. This paper is an attempt to bring together many aspects in order to study evacuation dynamics. Design/methodology/approach The proposed agent-based model, in a hypothetical physical environment, uses perception map for routing decision which is constructed from agents' personal observations of the surrounding as well as information gathered through distant communication. Communication is governed by a trust model which measures authenticity of the information being shared. Agents are of two types ; emotional and rational. The trust model is combined with a game-theoretic model to resolve conflict of agents' own type with that of types of agents in the neighborhood. Findings Evacuation dynamics in different environmental and exit strategies are evaluated aimed at reduced herding and evacuation time. Using this integrated information sharing model, agents gain an overall view of environment, sufficient to select optimal path toward exits w.r.t reduced herding and evacuation time. Originality/value The proposed dynamics is formulated and established by using an agent-based simulated integrating important modeling aspects. The paper helps in understanding the interplay between technological and humanistic aspects in smart and pervasive environments.

  • Crowdsourced real-time captioning of sign language by deaf and
           hard-of-hearing people
    • First page: 2
      Abstract: International Journal of Pervasive Computing and Communications, Volume 13, Issue 1, April 2017.
      Purpose This paper explores the issues on how to achieve a crowdsourced real-time captioning of sign language by deaf and hard-of-hearing (DHH) people, such that how a system structure should be designed, how a continuous task of sign language captioning should be divided into microtasks, how many DHH people are required to maintain a high-quality real-time captioning, etc. Design/methodology/approach The authors first propose a system structure including the new design of worker roles, task division and task assignment. Then, based on an implemented prototype, the authors analyze the necessary setting for achieving a crowdsourced real-time captioning of sign language, test the feasibility of the proposed system, and explore its robustness and improvability through four experiments. Findings The results of Experiment 1 have revealed the optimal method for task division, the necessary minimum number of groups, and the necessary minimum number of workers in a group. The results of Experiment 2 have verified the feasibility of the crowdsourced real-time captioning of sign language by DHH people. The results of Experiment 3 and Experiment 4 have shown the robustness and improvability of the captioning system. Originality/value Although some crowdsourcing-based systems have been developed for the captioning of voice to text, the authors intend to resolve the issues on the captioning of sign language to text, for which the existing approaches do not work well due to the unique properties of sign language. Moreover, DHH people are generally considered as the ones who receive support from others, but our proposal helps them become the ones who offer support to others.

  • Computer literacy through dance: the dancing computer project
    • First page: 26
      Abstract: International Journal of Pervasive Computing and Communications, Volume 13, Issue 1, April 2017.
      Purpose Dancing Computer in an ongoing research project a Michigan State University that is developing a system that aims to increase computer literacy in elementary-aged children by teaching them first to read code before they write it. The main objective is to educate children on basic concepts of Computer Science. Design/methodology/approach Children are given tablet computers that present a simple program line-by-line that they execute as they pretend to be a computer. The programs are acted out on a portable dance floor consisting of colored tiles and the program statements instruct the child to move, turn, and act out dance poses and terminology. Findings The Dancing Computer prototype was tested in six different locations in 2016, reaching approximately 250 students. Learning was demonstrated by significant improvements in both task duration and error performance as students performed the activities. The most common errors were movement errors, where participants failed to move the correct number of squares. Originality/value This is a unique and different approach - the norm being to start students off writing code in some language. Dancing Computer students children as readers of programs, allowing them to pretend to be a computer in a fun and engaging activity, while also learning how computers execute real programs.

  • A mobile platform for controlling and interacting with a Do-It-Yourself
           Smart Eyewear
    • First page: 41
      Abstract: International Journal of Pervasive Computing and Communications, Volume 13, Issue 1, April 2017.
      Purpose Smart Eyewear, such as augmented or virtual reality headset, allows the projection of virtual content through a display worn on the user’s head. In this paper, we present a mobile platform, named “CARTON”, to transform a smartphone into a smart eyewear following a Do-It-Yourself (DIY) approach. This platform is composed of three main components : a blueprint to build the hardware prototype with very simple materials and regular tools; a Software Development Kit (SDK) to help with the development of new applications (e.g. augmented reality app); and finally a second SDK (ControlWear) to interact with mobile applications through a Smartwatch. Design/methodology/approach User experiments were conducted in which participants were asked to create, by themselves, the CARTON’s hardware part and perform usability tests with their own creation. A second round of experimentation was conducted to evaluate three different interaction modalities. Findings Qualitative user feedback and quantitative results prove that CARTON is functional and feasible by anyone, without specific skills. The results also showed that ControlWear had the most positive results, compared with the other interaction modalities, and that user interaction preference would vary depending on the task. Originality/value The authors describe a novel way to create a smart eyewear available for a wide audience around the world. By providing everything open-source and open-hardware, we intend to solve the reachability of technologies related to smart eyewear and aim to accelerate research around it.

  • A proposition of querying scheme with Network Voronoi Diagram in
           bichromatic reverse k-nearest neighbor
    • First page: 62
      Abstract: International Journal of Pervasive Computing and Communications, Volume 13, Issue 1, April 2017.
      Purpose We propose and evaluate a searching scheme for a bichromatic reverse k-nearest neighbor (BRkNN) that has objects and queries in spatial networks. In our proposed scheme, we search for the BRkNN of the query using an influence zone for each object with a Network Voronoi Diagram. Design/methodology/approach We analyze and evaluate the performance of our proposed searching scheme. Findings The contribution of our paper is that we confirmed that our proposed searching scheme gives shorter processing time than the conventional linear search. Research limitations/implications A future direction of this study will involve making a searching scheme that reduces the processing time when objects move automatically on spatial networks. Practical implications In BRkNN, consider two groups in a convenience store, where several convenience stores, which are constructed in groups A and B, operate in a given region. We can use RNN effectively to set a new store considering the Euclidean and road distances among stores and the location relationship between groups A and B. Originality/value In our proposed searching scheme, we search for the BRkNN of the query for each object with a Network Voronoi Diagram using the influence zone, which is the region where an object in the spatial network recognizes the nearest neighbor for the query.

  • Design and evaluation of mission-oriented sensing platform with military
           analogy
    • First page: 76
      Abstract: International Journal of Pervasive Computing and Communications, Volume 13, Issue 1, April 2017.
      Purpose The purpose of this paper is to perform large-scale environmental sensing with a lot of IoT devices, as typically seen in Smart City, efficiently and for multiple applications. In this paper, we propose a novel sensing method, called mission oriented sensing, which accepts multiple and dynamic sensing purposes on a single infrastructure. Design/methodology/approach The proposed method achieves the purpose by dealing sensing configuration (application's purpose) as mission. It realizes sharing single infrastructure by accepting multiple missions in parallel, and it accepts missions' update anytime. In addition, the sensing platform based on military analogy can command and control a lot of IoT devices in good order, and this realizes mission oriented sensing above. Findings Introducing mission oriented sensing, multiple purpose large-scale sensing can be conducted efficiently. The experimental evaluation with a prototype platform shows the practical feasibility. In addition, the result shows that it is effective to update sensing configuration dynamically. Research limitations/implications The proposed method focuses aggregating environmental sensor value from a lot of devices, and thus it can treat stream data such as video or audio or control a specific device directly. Originality/value In proposed method, a single sensing infrastructure can be used by multiple applications, and it admits heterogeneous devices in a single infrastructure. In addition, the proposed method has less technical restriction and developers can implement actual platform with technologies for context.

      Abstract: International Journal of Pervasive Computing and Communications, Volume 13, Issue 1, April 2017.
      Purpose When designing a performance involving people and mobile robots, we must consider the required functions and shape of the robot. However, it can be difficult to account for all of the requirements. In this paper, we discuss a mobile robot in the shape of a ball that is used in theatrical performances. Design/methodology/approach we propose a mobile robot that can give the audience the optical illusion of the unique movements of a sphere by mounting a spherical LED display on a high-agility wheeled robot. Findings We found that movements that are difficult to implement with existing mechanisms can nonetheless be visualized through the use of light. Originality/value We propose the concept of using pseudo-physical movements in performances with robots. We built a robot that visually reproduces the movements of a rolling sphere and is capable of faster movements and easier position estimations in comparison with previous spherical robots.

  • Geometric Sequence Based Multipath Routing Protocol for Multi-hop Ad hoc
           Networks
    • First page: 394
      Abstract: International Journal of Pervasive Computing and Communications, Volume 12, Issue 4, November 2016.
      Purpose Ad hoc networks have increased in usage and popularity in both research and deployment. Packet routing in ad hoc networks is a very important factor to the successful operation of the network. Recently, sending the data packets over more than one path that are available between the sender and the receiver become an attractive approach in routing. In this work, a new approach for distributing packets, over the available paths, called Geometric Multipath Load Balancing routing protocol (GMRP) is proposed. Design/methodology/approach GMRP distributes packets according to the geometric sequence. GMRP is evaluated using GloMoSim simulator. We use packet delivery ratio and end to end delay as the comparison performance metrics. We also vary many network conguration parameters such as number of nodes, transmission rate, mobility speed, and network area. Findings The simulation results show that GMRP reduces the average end-to-end delay by up to 49% and increases the delivery ratio by up to 8%. Originality/value This study is the first to propose to use geometric sequence in the multipath routing approach.

      Abstract: International Journal of Pervasive Computing and Communications, Volume 12, Issue 4, November 2016.
      Purpose The objective is to increase security using PCCP techniques and make an system to provide security from the malware, key loggers and attacks Design/methodology/approach The work methodology comprises of two major phases. In phase one, the PCCP take place with the registration and login process done. It also includes text based password which hides the character of password to protect from shoulder surfing attack. In phase two the work includes background services which protect from key loggers Findings Secure Password Persuasive Cued Click Point (SPPCCP) is a module that facilitates authentication for the desktop-based applications & provides a single-machine licensing functionality. SPPCCP comprises little functionality to thwart attackers, such as persuasive click points with password protection. The techniques to protect against malware such as resist from debuggers and also to the key loggers that run on desktop computers. In this Spearman rank correlation is used for detection of key loggers. There are functionalities used to secure desktop applications like time constraint and user selection Originality/value The contribution of this paper is to provide knowledge in the field of security. It makes the graphical password more secure and useful. The intention behind this research was to increase the security level up to 60-80 %. It is also used for prevention of shoulder surfing problem till 80%, this research is also operated on key loggers, SPPCCP finds the key loggers and remove it from the system. It also decrypts the data of database by encrypting it by SHA-512 Algorithm & reduces the average login time up to 20-30% and will make view port smaller of 33.5*33.5 pixel square to have more choice to select the password. There by smaller view port also decreases the probability of hotspot area up to 18-20%.

  • Mobile User Signature Extraction based on user behavioural Pattern (MUSEP)
    • First page: 421
      Abstract: International Journal of Pervasive Computing and Communications, Volume 12, Issue 4, November 2016.
      Purpose The purpose of this paper is to extract the user behaviour and transform it into a unique signature that can be used as implicit authentication technique. Smart devices are equipped with multiple authentication techniques and still remain prone to attacks since all of these techniques require explicit intervention of the user. Entering a pin code, a password or even having a biometric print can be easily hacked by an adversary. Design/methodology/approach In this paper, we introduce a novel authentication model to be used as complementary to the existing authentication models; Particularly, the duration of usage of each application and the occurrence time were examined and modelled into a user signature. During the learning phase, a cubic spline function is used to extract the user signature based on his behavioural pattern. Findings Preliminary field experiments show a 70\% accuracy rate in determining the rightful owner of the device. Originality/value The main contribution of this work is a framework that extract the user behavior and transform it into a unique signature that can be used to implicitly authenticate the user.

           Adaptation
    • First page: 466
      Abstract: International Journal of Pervasive Computing and Communications, Volume 12, Issue 4, November 2016.
      Purpose One of the open questions is how to ensure the conceptual adaptation in the pervasive system. To answer this question, we needed to propose a generic model and a mechanism to describe this system and we also need generic and semantic rules to ensure the adaptation. In this paper, we propose a model to describe the pervasive information system. Second, we suggest an approach to divide this model so as to describe each category of contextual information separately and ensure the adaptation in the pervasive system. Finally, we present examples of semantic rules executed in the pervasive system. Design/methodology/approach In this paper, we proposed an approach to ensure the conceptual adaptation in the pervasive system. To do it we proposed a model to design the pervasive system and we used semantic web services. We proposed to divide the model to six descriptions related to the pervasive system categories information. Findings Pervasive Information System, Conceptual adaptation, Semantic web services, OWL-S. Originality/value The originality of my paper is presented in the purpose of the pervasive information system conceptual adaption in the pervasive system. In this later we used semantic web services to ensure the adaptation by the adding of contextual information in the semantic web service description.

  • Transforming to a Smart Hospital System: Proposed application in the
           Medina Maternity and Children's Hospital
    • First page: 503
      Abstract: International Journal of Pervasive Computing and Communications, Volume 12, Issue 4, November 2016.
      Purpose Expert knowledge is an important organisational resource and organisations need to retain the knowledge learned by experience, which can be shared as part of inter professional learning. In a healthcare context, Radio Frequency IDentification (RFID) and ZigBee technologies can be used together, to provide real-time information for decision support and to create a secure and reliable Smart Hospital Management Information System (SHMIS) that allows the dynamic control of objects and transforms operational processes, while minimising any potential risks to patients and staff. The current use of RFID technology in Saudi Arabia is solely for the monitoring of new-born infants and has been subject to difficulties in the different stages of tagging and monitoring. The current system in Medina Maternity and Children's Hospital (MMCH) uses battery-powered active RFID tags, which are expensive and require routine maintenance. Design/methodology/approach The extraordinary growth of Radio Frequency IDentification (RFID) and ZigBee technologies has made it possible to identify, locate and track objects in various environments in real-time. RFID technology is a non-contact identification technology that is cheap and reliable but has limited range in the case of passive tags. ZigBee has greater range and lower power consumption, giving more precise location of the object’s movements (0.6 m). Passive RFID and/or combined with ZigBee technology could be used to improve healthcare organisations through continuous data collection, supporting real-time decision-making by applying expert knowledge of domain experts to data produced by communication from electronic and sensor technologies. Findings A prototype object tracking system using RFID and ZigBee was developed to support the Knowledge Transformation for Knowledge Reasoning for Decision Support (KRDS) and the outcome from this research were validated with domain experts in hospitals in Saudi Arabia. Two feasibility case studies were conducted at MMCH in Saudi Arabia, in order to evaluate the proposed system. A survey was also administered to address the requirements at MMCH and the researcher adopted a range of strategy techniques, including interviews and meetings with staff, and the setting up of Communities of Practise (CoPs) in the target hospital. Research limitations/implications This paper has investigated the transformation process of an automatic healthcare tracking and monitoring system for the purpose of developing a Smart system in Saudi hospitals. For the scope of the project, the prototype implementation was restricted to a laboratory environment, in order to demonstrate the proposed proof of concept. The next phase would be to conduct a scale up of the system, implementation and testing in a real hospital environment. Originality/value To propose a prototype application of a Smart Hospital Management Information System (SHMIS) that allows the dynamic control of objects and transforms operational processes, while minimising any potential risks to patients and staff.
