    정용범 , 김용민 , 황철희 and 1 other persons | 2011, 16(11) | pp.1~8 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    The requirement of a system-on-a-chip (SoC) design is increasing, which combines various and complex functional units on a single device. However, short time to market prohibits to release the device. To satisfy this shorter time-to-market, verification of both hardware and software at the same time is important. A virtual platform-based design method supports faster verification of these combined software and hardware by reusing pre-defined intellectual properties (IP). In this paper, we introduce the virtual platform-based design and redesign the existing ARM processor based S3C2440A system using the virtual platform-based method. In addtion, we implement and evaluate the performance of a JPEG decoder on the S3C2440A virtual platform. Furthermore, we introduce an optimized technique of the JPEG decoder using the ARM based inline assembly language, and then verify the performance improvement on the virtual platform. Such virtual platform-based design allows to verify both software and hardware at the same time and can meet the requirement of the shorter time-to-market.

    최자현 , 하인애 , Myungduk Hong and 1 other persons | 2011, 16(11) | pp.17~24 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    Collaborative filtering system is the clustering about user is built and then based on that clustering results will recommend the preferred item to the user. However, building user clustering is time consuming and also once the users evaluate and give feedback about the film then rebuilding the system is not simple. In this paper, genre pattern of movie recommendation systems is being used and in order to simplify and reduce time of rebuilding user clustering. A Frequent pattern networks is used and then extracts user preference genre patterns and through that extracted patterns user clustering will be built. Through built the clustering for all neighboring users to collaborative filtering is applied and then recommends movies to the user. When receiving user information feedback, traditional collaborative filtering is to rebuild the clustering for all neighbouring users to research and do the clustering . However by using frequent pattern Networks, through user clustering based on genre pattern, collaborative filtering is applied and when rebuilding user clustering inquiry limited by search time can be reduced. After receiving user information feedback through proposed user clustering based on genre pattern , the time that need to spent on re-establishing user clustering can be reduced and also enable the possibility of traditional collaborative filtering systems and recommendation of a similar performance.

    Joo Kyung-Soo , 조도형 | 2011, 16(11) | pp.25~34 | number of Cited : 4
    Abstract PDF
    In this paper we present an integrated design methodology for relational database based on object-oriented analysis and design. The integrated design methodology is based on business profile and has six phases. In the first phase, business use cases are identified and described by macroactivity diagrams and then the macroactivity diagrams are transformed to detailed business activity diagrams by using objects, object flows and business worker's responsibilities. In the third phase, the detailed business activity diagrams are transformed to business class diagrams that describe the static structure of the entire business system based on detailed business activity diagrams. In the four phase, the business class diagrams are transformed to class diagrams that represent the initial conceptual model of the target relational database. In the five phase, we add additional transformations on the class diagrams with generalization and specialization of associations, roles, activities, additional classes and redundant associations. Eventually, the final class diagrams are transformed to relational database schema. The methodology presented in this paper by applying that proposal for organic connection between object-oriented analysis and design methodology and relational database design methodology. And it will be able to deal with integration management. By the integrated design methodology, we can make more easily software systems based on relational database. In the case study, proposal integrated design methodology applied for a visa issuing system.

    이혁 , LI YAN , WeoniI Jeong and 1 other persons | 2011, 16(11) | pp.35~44 | number of Cited : 2
    Abstract PDF
    Advances in science and technology have made a lot of changes in our life. Especially, sensors have used in various ways to monitor in real time and analyze the world effectively. Traditional sensor networks, however, have used their own protocols and architecture so it had to be paid a lot of additional cost. In the past 8 years, OGC and ISO have been formulating standards and protocols for the geospatial Sensor Web. Although the OGC SWE initiatives have deployed some components, attempts have been made to access sensor data. All spatial operations had to calculate on the client side because traditional SOS architecture did not consider spatial operation for GeoSensor. As a result, clients have to implement and run spatial operations, and it caused a lot of overload on them and decreased approachableness. In this paper we propose S-SOS for in-situ and moving GeoSensor that extends 52 North SOS and provides spatialFilter and spatialFinder operations. The proposed S-SOS provides an architecture that does not need to edit already deployed SOSs and can add spatial operations as occasion. Additionally we explain how to express the spatial queries and to be used effectively for various location based services.

    Abstract PDF
    The music education improves the creative talent, social skills and academic achievement of the students. For the efficient music education, the learner centered study is highly recommended rather than the passive education, which supports self-control in selecting teaching materials, learning patterns and speed. For the successful self learning, it is requested to develop the collaborative educational learning tools, especially electronic collaborators such as H/W and S/W. Though there exist many commercialized electronic instruments and the PC MIDI based softwares, these tools have some limits and problems for the primary student to learn playing the musical instrument by himself. In this paper, we propose a supporting tool implementation method using an electronic keyboard instrument with USB Interface and PC-based software to help the primary student to learn playing the musical instrument. We implemented an electronic keyboard instrument module compactly and at low cost using a PIC18F4550 MCU. PC based software was developed to edit musical score, process the MIDI information, and interact with the electronic keyboard instrument module. This tool can offer a similar keyboard instrument environment and can be incorporated with self learning contents.

    Abstract PDF
    In this paper, we propose an iPhone application that allows the user to pay for donations using the camera, GPS and call functions of the iPhone. As iOS version 3.0 allows the iPhone camera to detect and read bar codes and QR codes, the proposed application uses such codes to identify a product the user wishes to donation. After determining the user’s location using the iPhone GPS function, the application can then perform a navigation task that guides the user to a suitable shop or store where the user can make his or her donation. In addition, the application offers an ARS call function that allows the user to make a direct donation, even if the user does not know the telephone number for making such donations. Therefore, the proposed application provides an easy means for the user to pay for donations directly or indirectly.

    Efficient Construction of Large Scale Grade of Services Steiner Tree Using Space Locality and Polynomial-Time Approximation Scheme

    김인범 | 2011, 16(11) | pp.153~162 | number of Cited : 2
    Abstract PDF
    As the problem of GOSST building belongs to NP compete domain, heuristics for the problem ask for immense amount execution time and computations in large scale inputs. In this paper, we propose an efficient mechanism for GOSST construction using space locality PTAS. For 40,000 input nodes with maximum weight 100, the proposed space locality PTAS GOSST with 16 unit areas can reduce about 4.00% of connection cost and 89.26% of execution time less than weighted minimum spanning tree method. Though the proposed method increases 0.03% of connection cost more, but cuts down 96.39% of execution time less than approximate GOSST method (SGOSST) without PTAS. Therefore the proposed space locality PTAS GOSST mechanism can work moderately well to many useful applications where a greate number of weighted inputs should be connected in short time with approximate minimum connection cost.

    윤태진 , Sejin Oh , 안광선 | 2011, 16(11) | pp.163~172 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    Because RFID systems use radio frequency, they have many security problems such as eavesdropping, location tracking, spoofing attack and replay attack. So, many mutual authentication protocols and cryptography methods for RFID systems have been proposed in order to solve security problems, but previous proposed protocols using AES(Advanced Encryption Standard) have fixed key problem and security problems. In this paper, we analyze security of proposed protocols and propose our protocol using OTP(One-Time Pad) and AES to solve security problems and to reduce hardware overhead and operation. Our protocol encrypts data transferred between RFID reader and tag, and accomplishes mutual authentication by one time random number to generate in RFID reader. In addition, this paper presents that our protocol has higher security and efficiency in computation volume and process than researched protocols and S.Oh’s Protocol. Therefore, our protocol is secure against various attacks and suitable for lightweight RFID tag system.

    김종영 | 2011, 16(11) | pp.173~178 | number of Cited : 1
    Abstract PDF
    In this paper, we propose an efficient seamless handover protocol in NEMO environment. Yokoda et al 4. proposed fast handover method with collaboration of access routers in local network and Teraoka et al. 1 showed fast handover method with collaboration of layers in mobile network. These methods can delay the time of overall binding update and increase packets loss when link of router is unstable because they transport packets through only one path or link of router. And they don't also mention redirection method of packets in their protocol in case of unstable link state of routers. The proposed protocol can execute fast binding update and reduce packets loss with collaboration of routers in mobile network.

    Transforming Non-distributive Hierarchy Schemas into the Distributive Hierarchy Schema

    오미화 , 최인수 | 2011, 16(11) | pp.233~244 | number of Cited : 2
    Abstract PDF
    Online analytical processing (OLAP) architecture performs only well on the facts that are summarizable along each dimension, where all hierarchy schemas are distributive, and consequently many kinds of non-distributive hierarchy schemas arising in real-world situations are not addressed by current OLAP implementations. In previous work, we presented the classification of hierarchy schemas in aggregation, including one distributive and seven non-distributive hierarchy schemas. This paper presents a transforming approach of seven non-distributive hierarchy schemas into the distributive hierarchy schema. The first thing in the approach is cutting complex non-distributive hierarchy schemas into more simpler ones, and the next is the transformation of those simpler ones into the distributive hierarchy schema. This approach will let complex hierarchy schemas arising in real world situations be addressed by current OLAP implementations. It is thought that this approach will be useful one from an implementation and schema design point of view.

    서동혁 , 김규익 , KwangDeuk Kim and 1 other persons | 2011, 16(11) | pp.245~253 | number of Cited : 1
    Abstract PDF
    Due to the imprudent spending of the fossil fuels, the environment was contaminated seriously and the exhaustion problems of the fossil fuels loomed large. Therefore people become taking a great interest in alternative energy resources which can solve problems of fossil fuels. The wind power energy is one of the most interested energy in the new and renewable energy. However, the plants of wind power energy and the traditional power plants should be balanced between the power generation and the power consumption. Therefore, we need analysis and prediction to generate power efficiently using wind energy. In this paper, we have performed a research to predict power generation patterns using the wind power data. Prediction approaches of datamining area can be used for building a prediction model. The research steps are as follows: 1) we performed preprocessing to handle the missing values and anomalous data. And we extracted the characteristic vector data. 2) The representative patterns were found by the MIA(Mean Index Adequacy) measure and the SOM(Self-Organizing Feature Map) clustering approach using the normalized dataset. We assigned the class labels to each data. 3) We built a new predicting model about the wind power generation with classification approach. In this experiment, we built a forecasting model to predict wind power generation patterns using the decision tree.
