    Using our expertise on personalization technologies in e-commerce we examined an approach to enhance the search process enabling a better, personalized product search and result presentation in travel and tourism applications.

  • CAR-SoC Prof. Dr. Theo Ungerer (Systems and Networking)

    CAR-SoC defines a new SoC approach that emphasizes Connectivity, Autonomic computing principles, and Real-time requirements on a chip. The requirements shall be fulfilled by a multithreaded processor core in combination with a reconfigurable architecture. The multithreaded processor core is based on Infineon's TriCore architecture extended by an integrated powerful real-time scheduling. Helper threads running with low priority in own thread slots concurrent to the application implement autonomic managers that monitor relevant on-chip characteristics like processor workload and memory usage. The autonomic managers decide in combination with a middleware if self-optimization, self-configuration, self-protection, or self-healing techniques must be triggered.

  • On the Optimal Placement of Multiple Visual Sensors Eva Hörster (Multimedia Computing)

    Optimal Placement of Multiple Visual Sensors Visual sensor arrays are used in many novel multimedia applications such as video surveillance, sensing rooms, assisted living or immersive conference rooms. Most of these applications require the layout of video sensors to assure a minimum level of image quality or image resolution. Thus, an important issue in designing visual sensor arrays is the appropriate placement of the cameras such that they achieve one or mulitple predefined goals and as video sensor arrays are getting larger, efficient camera placement strategies need to be developed.

  • PHP4Mono - The Mono PHP Compiler Dr. Raphael Romeikat (Programming Distributed Systems)

    With the PHP Compiler for Mono you can develop standalone applications for the Microsoft .NET Framework or the compartible open source implementation Mono in PHP.

    The project PHP4Mono aims at making PHP available as further programming language for the .NET platform and like that bundle the strengths of both sides. For this purpose a compiler is being developed which translates PHP scripts directly into Common Intermediate Language (CIL), a standardized intermediate language. During translating the PHP language elements used must been reproduced exactly with CIL's features. The result is then saved as executable (exe) or program library (dll).

    With PHP on .NET a lot of new possibilities turn up. Developers may use PHP no more only as scripting language for webites, but also as programming language for developing standalone applications. All important PHP language elements are already supported by the compiler's current version and the remaining gaps are closed bit by bit.

    A special feature is the ability of calling other .NET assemblies directly from within PHP code. In doing so one can also code graphical user interfaces directly in PHP.

    PHP4Mono is an open source projekt, is hosted by SourceForge and is licensed under the GNU General Public License. More information, a tutorial and a list of all features already implemented and still planned are available on the website of PHP4Mono
