Dissertation Progress – Day 29

Progress made today: Fixed servlet problem – seemed to be caused by old servlet listing in web.xml. Created database functionality for web application – it now retrieves data from MySQL database! Implemented first template using tags. Begun researching into MVC implementation – need to find a solution how to invoke a servlet controller from index.jsp […]

Dissertation Progress – Day 28

Tasks complete today: Added Pi4J API libraries to client project in Netbeans. Installed WinSCP to deploy JAR files – have successfully connected to RPi 2 using FTP (I think it’s using that connection type?). When running the AmI System (temperature mode), it occurred to me both Pi’s breadboard sensors must be setup identically. I have […]

Dissertation Progress – Day 27

Tasks complete today: Created x3 new Servlet classes – Temperature, Atmosphere, NetworkedDevices. Soldered digital temperature sensor for RPi 2. Configured i2c module – ‘i2cdetect -y 1’ command has detected it [temperature sensor]. Displays port number including ‘UU’ – assume it has been set aside for use by the Raspbian OS kernel. Not sure it’s attributed […]

Dissertation Progress – Day 26

Tasks complete today: Ordered LEGO bricks for RPi 1 (NB: in the end I didn’t actually need to order them. Oh well…) Built 2nd LEGO case for RPi 2. Put labels on RPi 1 + 2’s SD cards. Bricks have been placed beside the units for identification to correspond with RPi 1 + 2. Connected […]

‘Multiple-Agent Perspectives in Reasoning About Situations for Context-Aware Pervasive Computing Systems’ (Notes)

Overview x2 challenges: 1) Representing context and situations in a unifying model (incl. reasoning about context under uncertainty). 2) Enhancing context awareness in distributed, open, multi-agent pervasive systems by dynamically updating context models and merging perspectives of different entities into a single context representation. Motivating Use Case Agents capable of independently reasoning about their context […]
