    Abstract : This research focuses on the emergence of 'digital walls' that can project images onto almost all or even the entirety of interior (and perhaps exterior) walls, and what implications this might have for how we arrange our rooms. It demonstrates the arrangement, i.e. READ MORE

  2. 2. Shades of Use : The Dynamics of Interaction Design for Sociable Use

    Author : Mattias Arvola; Kjell Ohlsson; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; interaction design; customer meetings; design studios; domestic environments; Cognitive science; Kognitionsvetenskap;

    Abstract : Computers are used in sociable situations, for example during customer meetings. This is seldom recognized in design, which means that computers often become a hindrance in the meeting. READ MORE

  3. 3. Exploiting structure in man-made environments

    Author : Alper Aydemir; Patric Jensfelt; Tom Duckett; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; robotics; mapping; computer vision;

    Abstract : Robots are envisioned to take on jobs that are dirty, dangerous and dull, the three D's of robotics. With this mission, robotic technology today is ubiquitous on the factory floor. However, the same level of success has not occurred when it comes to robots that operate in everyday living spaces, such as homes and offices. READ MORE

  4. 4. Tactical planning in engineer-to-order environments

    Author : Hafez Shurrab; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Sales and operations planning; Operations planning and control; Tactical planning; Operations management; Cross-functional integration; Complexity; Case study; Engineer-to-order;

    Abstract : Tactical planning is implemented to balance customer demand and supply capacity within a medium-term and to avoid under- and overcapacity. In engineer-to-order (ETO) environments, under- and overcapacity lead firms to incur substantial costs that can easily wipe out profit margins. READ MORE

  5. 5. Influenza A virus in natural and artificial environments

    Author : John Wahlgren; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : Influenza is caused by influenza A virus, a single stranded RNA virus of the orthomyxoviridae family. In humans, it causes yearly outbreaks with high morbidity and excess fatality rates as a direct effect. Placed in its ecological niche however, in dabbling ducks, avian influenza virus (AIV) induce quite mild disease. READ MORE
