  • Multimodal Hand and Foot Gesture Interaction for Handheld Devices
  • 2014
  • Ingår i: ACM Transactions on Multimedia Computing, Communications, and Applications (TOMCCAP). - : Association for Computing Machinery (ACM). - 1551-6857 .- 1551-6865. ; 11:1
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • We present a hand-and-foot-based multimodal interaction approach for handheld devices. Our method combines input modalities (i.e., hand and foot) and provides a coordinated output to both modalities along with audio and video. Human foot gesture is detected and tracked using contour-based template detection (CTD) and Tracking-Learning-Detection (TLD) algorithm. 3D foot pose is estimated from passive homography matrix of the camera. 3D stereoscopic and vibrotactile are used to enhance the immersive feeling. We developed a multimodal football game based on the multimodal approach as a proof-of-concept. We confirm our systems user satisfaction through a user study.

  • Statistical Analysis of Requirements Prioritization for Transition to Web Technologies : A Case Study in an Electric Power Organization
  • 2014
  • Ingår i: Software Quality. Model-Based Approaches for Advanced Software and Systems Engineering. - Cham : Springer. - 9783319036021 - 9783319036014 ; , s. 63-84
  • Konferensbidrag (refereegranskat)abstract
    • Transition from an existing IT system to modern Web technologies provides multiple benefits to an organization and its customers. Such a transition in a large organization involves various groups of stakeholders who may prioritize differently the requirements of the software under development. In our case study, the organization is a leading domestic company in the field of electricity power. The existing online system supports the customer service along with the technical activities and has more than 1,500 registered users, while simultaneous access can be reached by 300 users. The paper presents an empirical study where 51 employees in different roles prioritize 18 software requirements using hierarchical cumulative voting. The goal of this study is to test significant differences in prioritization between groups of stakeholders. Statistical methods involving data transformation, ANOVA and Discriminant Analysis were applied to data. The results showed significant differences between roles of the stakeholders in certain requirements.

  • Validity and Responsiveness of At-Home Touch Screen Assessments in Advanced Parkinson's Disease
  • 2015
  • Ingår i: IEEE Journal of Biomedical and Health Informatics. - : IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Inc.. - 2168-2194 .- 2168-2208. ; 19:6, s. 1829-1834
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • The aim of this study was to investigate if a telemetry test battery can be used to measure effects of Parkinson's disease (PD) treatment intervention and disease progression in patients with fluctuations. Sixty-five patients diagnosed with advanced PD were recruited in an open longitudinal 36-month study; 35 treated with levodopa-carbidopa intestinal gel (LCIG) and 30 were candidates for switching from oral PD treatment to LCIG. They utilized a test battery, consisting of self-assessments of symptoms and fine motor tests (tapping and spiral drawings), four times per day in their homes during week-long test periods. The repeated measurements were summarized into an overall test score (OTS) to represent the global condition of the patient during a test period. Clinical assessments included ratings on unified PD rating scale (UPDRS) and 39-item PD questionnaire (PDQ-39) scales. In LCIG-naive patients, the mean OTS compared to baseline was significantly improved from the first test period on LCIG treatment until month 24. In LCIG-non naive patients, there were no significant changes in the mean OTS until month 36. The OTS correlated adequately with total UPDRS (rho = 0.59) and total PDQ-39 (0.59). Responsiveness measured as effect size was 0.696 and 0.536 for OTS and UPDRS, respectively. The trends of the test scores were similar to the trends of clinical rating scores but the dropout rate was high. Correlations betweenOTS and clinical rating scales were adequate indicating that the test battery contains important elements of the information of well-established scales. The responsiveness and reproducibility were better for OTS than for total UPDRS.

  • Design of active queue management for robust control on access router for heterogeneous networks
  • 2011
  • Ingår i: EURASIP Journal on Wireless Communications and Networking. - 1687-1472 .- 1687-1499. ; 2011, s. Art. no. 946498-

    • The Internet architecture is a packet switching technology that allows dynamic sharing of bandwidth among different flows with in an IP network. Packets are stored and forwarded from one node to the next until reaching their destination. Major issues in this integration are congestion control and how to meet different quality of service requirements associated with various services. In other words streaming media quality degrades with increased packet delay and jitter caused by network congestion. To mitigate the impact of network congestion, various techniques have been used to improve multimedia quality and one of those techniques is Active Queue Management (AQM). Access routers require a buffer to hold packets during times of congestion. A large buffer can absorb the bursty arrivals, and this tends to increase the link utilizations but results in higher queuing delays. Traffic burstiness has a considerable negative impact on network performance. AQM is now considered an effective congestion control mechanism for enhancing transport protocol performance over wireless links. In order to have good link utilization, it is necessary for queues to adapt to varying traffic loads. This paper considers a particular scheme which is called Adaptive AQM (AAQM) and studies its performance in the presence of feedback delays and its ability to maintain a small queue length as well as its robustness in the presence of traffic burstiness. The paper also presents a method based on the well-known Markov Modulated Poisson Process (MPP) to capture traffic burstiness and buffer occupancy. To demonstrate the generality of the presented method, an analytic model is described and verified by extensive simulations of different adaptive AQM algorithms. The analysis and simulations show that AAQM outperforms the other AQMs with respect to responsiveness and robustness. © 2011 Rahim Rahmani et al.

  • Cognitive Learning, Monitoring and Assistance of Industrial Workflows Using Egocentric Sensor Networks
  • 2015
  • Ingår i: PLoS ONE. - 1932-6203 .- 1932-6203. ; 10:6
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • Today, the workflows that are involved in industrial assembly and production activities are becoming increasingly complex. To efficiently and safely perform these workflows is demanding on the workers, in particular when it comes to infrequent or repetitive tasks. This burden on the workers can be eased by introducing smart assistance systems. This article presents a scalable concept and an integrated system demonstrator designed for this purpose. The basic idea is to learn workflows from observing multiple expert operators and then transfer the learnt workflow models to novice users. Being entirely learning-based, the proposed system can be applied to various tasks and domains. The above idea has been realized in a prototype, which combines components pushing the state of the art of hardware and software designed with interoperability in mind. The emphasis of this article is on the algorithms developed for the prototype: 1) fusion of inertial and visual sensor information from an on-body sensor network (BSN) to robustly track the user’s pose in magnetically polluted environments; 2) learning-based computer vision algorithms to map the workspace, localize the sensor with respect to the workspace and capture objects, even as they are carried; 3) domain-independent and robust workflow recovery and monitoring algorithms based on spatiotemporal pairwise relations deduced from object and user movement with respect to the scene; and 4) context-sensitive augmented reality (AR) user feedback using a head-mounted display (HMD). A distinguishing key feature of the developed algorithms is that they all operate solely on data from the on-body sensor network and that no external instrumentation is needed. The feasibility of the chosen approach for the complete action-perception-feedback loop is demonstrated on three increasingly complex datasets representing manual industrial tasks. These limited size datasets indicate and highlight the potential of the chosen technology as a combined entity as well as point out limitations of the system.

  • Scalability and Semantic Sustainability in Electronic Health Record Systems
  • 2013
  • Doktorsavhandling (övrigt vetenskapligt)abstract
    • This work is a small contribution to the greater goal of making software systems used in healthcare more useful and sustainable. To come closer to that goal, health record data will need to be more computable and easier to exchange between systems.Interoperability refers to getting systems to work together and semantics concerns the study of meanings. If Semantic interoperability is achieved then information entered in one information system is usable in other systems and reusable for many purposes. Scalability refers to the extent to which a system can gracefully grow by adding more resources. Sustainability refers more to how to best use available limited resources. Both aspects are important.The main focus and aim of the thesis is to increase knowledge about how to support scalability and semantic sustainability. It reports explorations of how to apply aspects of the above to Electronic Health Record (EHR) systems, associated infrastructure, data structures, terminology systems, user interfaces and their mutual boundaries.Using terminology systems is one way to improve computability and comparability of data. Modern complex ontologies and terminology systems can contain hundreds of thousands of concepts that can have many kinds of relationships to multiple other concepts. This makes visualization challenging. Many visualization approaches designed to show the local neighbourhood of a single concept node do not scale well to larger sets of nodes. The interactive TermViz approach described in this thesis, is designed to aid users to navigate and comprehend the context of several nodes simultaneously. Two applications are presented where TermViz aids management of the boundary between EHR data structures and the terminology system SNOMED CT.The amount of available time from people skilled in health informatics is limited. Adequate methods and tools are required to develop, maintain and reuse health-IT solutions in a sustainable way. Multiple levels of modelling including a fixed reference model and another layer of flexible reusable ‘archetypes’ for domain specific data structures, is an approach with that aim used in openEHR and the ISO 13606 standard. This approach, including learning, implementing and managing it, is explored from different angles in this thesis. An architecture applying Representational State Transfer (REST) to archetype-based EHR systems, in order to address scalability, is presented. Combined with archetyping this architecture also aims at enabling a sustainable way of continuously evolving multi-vendor EHR solutions. An experimental open source implementation of it, aimed for learning and prototyping, is also presented.Manually changing database structures used for storage every time new versions of archetypes and associated data structures are needed is likely not a sustainable activity. Thus storage systems that can handle change with minimal manual interventions are desirable. Initial explorations of performance and scalability in such systems are also reportedGraphical user interfaces focused on EHR navigation, time-perspectives and highlighting of EHR content are also presented – illustrating what can be done with computable health record data and the presented approaches.Desirable aspects of semantic sustainability have been discussed, including: sustainable use of limited resources (such as available time of skilled people), and reduction of unnecessary risks. A semantic sustainability perspective should be inspired and informed by research in complex systems theory, and should also include striving to be highly aware of when and where technical debt is being built up. Semantic sustainability is a shared responsibility.The combined results presented contribute to increasing knowledge about ways to support scalability and semantic sustainability in the context of electronic health record systems. Supporting tools, architectures and approaches are additional contributions.

  • A framework for evaluation of flood management strategies
  • 2008
  • Ingår i: Journal of Environmental Management. - 0301-4797 .- 1095-8630. ; 86:3, s. 465-480
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • The resulting impact of disasters on society depends on the affected country's economic strength prior to the disaster. The larger the disaster and the smaller the economy, the more significant is the impact. This is clearest seen in developing countries, where weak economics become even weaker afterwards. Deliberate strategies for the sharing of losses from hazardous events may aid a country or a community in efficiently using scarce prevention and mitigation resources, thus being better prepared for the effects of a disaster. Nevertheless, many governments lack an adequate institutional system for applying cost effective and reliable technologies for disaster prevention, early warnings, and mitigation. Modelling by event analyses and strategy models is one way of planning ahead, but these models have so far not been linked together. An approach to this problem was taken during a large study in Hungary, the Tisza case study, where a number of policy strategies for spreading of flood loss were formulated. In these strategies, a set of parameters of particular interest were extracted from interviews with stakeholders in the region. However, the study was focused on emerging economies, and, in particular, on insurance strategies. The scope is now extended to become a functional framework also for developing countries. In general, they have a higher degree of vulnerability. The paper takes northern Vietnam as an example of a developing region. We identify important parameters and discuss their importance for flood strategy formulations. Based on the policy strategies in the Tisza case, we extract data from the strategies and propose a framework for loss spread in developing and emerging economics. The parameter set can straightforwardly be included in a simulation and decision model for policy formulation and evaluation, taking multiple stakeholders into account.
