  • Computer device for a vehicle EP 1717777Computer device for a vehicle EP 1717777

      A microcomputer (10) produces a parameter (18) related to the gravity of traffic violation based on data e.g. traffic rules, geographical location, maximum speed limit, traffic routes, stored in a database. The microcomputer then produces signals for motor vehicle driving control or driving assist based on the parameter. A signal unit (22) alerts the driver of possible consequences resulting from traffic violation. The parameter may be in form of traffic fines using a penalty catalog in the database.

        The invention consists of a self-organizing peer-to-peer computer system, and the related application deployable and executable on the single peers of the system. The system provides services for distributed storage, which can be adopted in the very frequent case in which the storable resources are associated with keys, and read and write operations access resources through these keys. In particular, the system and the application allow resources to be published and managed in a self-organizing and flexible fashion, and enable the efficient execution of discovery operations, both simple and complex, with low network overhead.

        -The invention can be adopted to enhance the efficiency of both traditional P2P applications and distributed storage systems in which resources are assigned, located and accessed through their keys.
        -In Computational Grids.
        -Computational Cloud environment presents similar requirements: the service provider needs to select the platforms and resources, amidst hundreds or thousands of hosts, which can be used to create the virtual environment capable of serving the user requests and run their applications. The invention can be exploited to manage the Cloud information systems of big companies. The invention can also be properly adopted in a multi-vendor Cloud scenario, since there is a wide consensus about the need for integrating Cloud infrastructures of different companies.

        -In the system, there is no obligation to assign a key to a well-specified peer, as other structured P2P systems do. This feature enables the definition of “classes” of resources—a class being defined as a set of resources that share common characteristics and are mapped to the same multi-dimensional key. The system supports “class” queries, i.e., queries that aim to find resources belonging to a specified class, and multi-dimensional range queries, in which range values are
        specified for each attribute of the key.
        -Currently used structured P2P systems can produce imbalance problems depending on the location of peers and the statistical distribution of the values of resource keys. In our system, the keys are fairly distributed over the peers, irrespective of the location of peers and the distribution of key values. This allows to avoid the presence of an excessive computing load on the machines that manage the post popular key values.
        -In existing P2P systems, appropriate operations are necessary when a host joins the system or when new resources are published: these resources must be immediately assigned to the peers whose indexes match the resource keys. These operations are not necessary in our system because the mobile agents are always active and will spontaneously reorganize the keys over the multi-dimensional space. This assures scalability (keys are continuously reordered as the network grows) and robustness with respect to environmental changes.

        Each resource is assigned a multi-dimensional key, either with a hash function, in accordance with
        the DHT (Distributed Hash Table) paradigm, or by giving each coordinate of the key a semantic
        meaning, for example the value of a resource attribute. The key is then consigned to one of the
        peers of the system, and it will be the access point for the resource.

        • Biometric Car Immobilizer Solution SingaporeBiometric Car Immobilizer Solution Singapore

            The immobilizer disarms when an authorized security code is received from a transponder during an attempt to start the engine. The controller for the engine immobilizer monitors engine receiving sensors and switches to the armed state if the engine-running sensors indicate that the engine is not running even though the ignition switch has not been detected to have been put in the position.

            None of the disclosed patent relates to the application of biometrics and immobilizer. The conventional art does not disclose the use of a secure communication protocol within the system. To overcome the above drawbacks, the biometric immobilizer for automobiles make use of biometrics and immobilizer technologies together with a secure communication protocol being built within the biometric system for generation of secure communication vector key for authorized access to various function units. The present biometric immobilization also has an internal built in proprietary data protection protocol and procedure to ensure all information within the memory storage being encrypted by personal biometrics information generated key is also one of the key code technologies within the biometric fingerprint authorization unit system.
