  • McKeever, Susan; Ye, Juan; Coyle, Lorcan; Bleakley, Chris; Dobson, Simon (2010)
    The ability to identify the behavior of people in a home is at the core of Smart Home functionality. Such environments are equipped with sensors that unobtrusively capture information about the occupants. Reasoning mechanisms ...
  • Dobson, Simon; Neely, Steve; Nixon, Paddy (Springer, 2006)
    The increasingly dynamic nature of resource discovery and binding in modern large-scale distributed and mobile systems poses significant challenges for existing middleware platforms. Future platforms must provide strong ...
  • Vassev, Emil; Hinchey, Mike; Balasubramaniam, Dharini; Dobson, Simon (IEEE Computer Society, 2011)
    Both modularity and loose-­coupling properties inherent to the self-­adaptive systems offer the opportunity for adhoc service compositions, dynamic change and adaptation. To provide such a dynamic and self-­adapting ...
  • Dobson, Simon; Coyle, Lorcan; O'Hare, G.M.P.; Hinchey, Mike (IEEE Computer Society, 2009)
    Mobile sensors are an attractive proposition for environmental sensing, but pose significant engineering problems. Not least amongst these is the need to match the behaviour of the sensor platform to the physical environment ...
  • Dobson, Simon; Sterritt, Roy; Nixon, Paddy; Hinchey, Mike (IEEE Computer Society, 2010)
    Efforts since 2001 to design self-managing systems have yielded many impressive achievements, yet the original vision of autonomic computing remains unfulfilled. Researchers must develop a comprehensive systems engineering ...
  • Dobson, Simon; Nixon, Paddy; Coyle, Lorcan (IEEE Computer Software Society, 2007)
    Event-based systems are a popular substrate for distributing information derived from sensors to be used in driving adaptive behaviour. This paper argues that using events directly provides a poor model of context, and ...
  • Murdoch, Olga; Coyle, Lorcan; Dobson, Simon (19th Irish conference on Artificial Intelligence and Cognitive Science (AICS) 2008, 27-28 August, 2008, Cork, 2008)
    Stock photo libraries are the most common means for publishers and advertisers to find images for their media. Searching for the perfect photo can be a time-consuming and frustrating task. This is because searching is often ...
  • Ye, Juan; Clear, Adrian K.; Coyle, Lorcan; Dobson, Simon (Springer-Verlag, 2009)
    Through advances in sensing technology, a huge amount of data is available to context-aware applications. A major challenge is extracting features of this data that correlate to high-level human activities. Time, while ...
  • Williamson, Graham; Cellai, Davide; Dobson, Simon; Nixon, Paddy (Springer, 2009)
    Many modern network applications, including sensor networks and MANETs, have dynamic topologies that reflect processes occurring in the outside world. These dynamic processes are a challenge to traditional information ...
  • Coyle, Lorcan; Neely, Steve; Rey, Gaetan; Stevenson, Graeme; Sullivan, Mark; Dobson, Simon; Nixon, Paddy (Kaist Press, 2007)
    Systems for home automation can make a vital contribution to the wellbeing of individuals requiring moderate amounts of support for day-to-day living. Existing systems suffer both from competing and often closed standards ...
  • Knox, Stephen; Coyle, Lorcan; Dobson, Simon (Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligenc, 2010)
    Pervasive computing requires the ability to detect user activity in order to provide situation-specific services. Case-based reasoning can be used for activity recognition by using sensor data obtained from the environment. ...
