Existem aplicações na área da robótica móvel em que, além da navegação autônoma do robô, é necessário que um usuário humano interaja no controle de navegação do robô. Neste caso, considerado como controle semi-autônomo, o usuário humano têm a possibilidade de alterar localmente a trajetória autônoma previamente planejada para o robô. Entretanto, o sistema de controle inteligente do robô, por meio de um módulo independente do usuário, continuamente evita colisões, mesmo que para isso os comandos do usuário precisem ser modificados. Esta abordagem cria um ambiente seguro para navegação que pode ser usado em cadeiras de rodas robotizadas e veículos robóticos tripulados onde a segurança do ser humano deve ser garantida. Um sistema de controle que possua estas características deve ser baseado numa arquitetura para robôs móveis adequada. Esta arquitetura deve integrar a entrada de comandos de um ser humano com a camada de controle autônomo do sistema que evita colisões com obstáculos estáticos e dinâmicos, e que conduz o robô em direção ao seu objetivo de navegação. Neste trabalho é proposta uma arquitetura de controle híbrida (deliberativa/reativa) para um robô móvel com interação humana. Esta arquitetura...

Esse trabalho apresenta a arquitetura a fluxo de dados Wolf. Essa arquitetura foi proposta considerando-se alguns problemas conhecidos em execução de código em arquiteturas a fluxo de dados tais como tratamento de código seqüencial e tratamento de estruturas de dados (vetores e matrizes). Wolf é baseado no modelo de fluxo de dados dinâmico e explora granulosidade variável, sendo a mais fina a nível de instrução. Alguns conceitos explorados por outras arquiteturas a fluxo de dados guiaram o desenvolvimento do Wolf. Entre esses estão o conceito de macro-dataflow e multithreading. Para o estudo da arquitetura Wolf foi desenvolvido um simulador dirigido a tempo que implementa suas características. O simulador Saw foi escrito na linguagem orientada a objetos C++ e pode ser compilado em qualquer plataforma que use um compilador padrão ANSI de 32 bits. O código do simulador foi exaustivamente testado e os resultados numéricos dos programas executados estão de acordo com resultados apresentados por uma arquitetura Von Neumann padrão. Após o estudo dos resultados obtidos com as simulações, foram identificados alguns problemas com a arquitetura Wolf. Algumas hipóteses foram testadas para solucionar tais problemas. Os resultados desses testes levaram à alteração da arquitetura. Desta alteração originou-se a arquitetura Wolf II que será apresentada também nesse trabalho. Por se tratar de uma conseqüência dos estudos realizados com a arquitetura Wolf...

Esta tese de doutorado reflete sobre a possibilidade de existência de um campo de mobilidade para a ação crítica da arquitetura no mundo contemporâneo, marcado por consensos nas esferas social, econômica, política e cultural. O trabalho toma como noções fundamentais para as suas proposições os termos espaço e evento (e noções que eles ativam: experiência, sujeito, corpo, tempo), a partir dos quais lança as seguintes hipóteses. A primeira, a de que a noção de evento, segundo a filosofia de Alain Badiou, traria abertura para investigações críticas sobre o projeto e práticas de espacialização na arquitetura contemporânea. E a segunda, a de que esta noção levaria à reconsideração da relação entre estética e política no campo da arquitetura. O trabalho toma como seu ponto de partida a sistematização e problematização da teoria crítica de arquitetura de Bernard Tschumi baseada na relação espaço-evento. Num segundo momento, procura elucidar como uma certa noção de evento foi apropriada pela esfera cultural contemporânea e apresentar as lógicas com que ele aparece não só nesta esfera, mas em uma arquitetura que extensamente tem se transformado em sua correlata. A análise das duas concepções anteriores da relação espaço-evento sinaliza a necessidade de investigação de outros campos de ação crítica para a arquitetura e mesmo para a própria relação espaço-evento. Realizamos num terceiro momento...

peer-reviewed; Service-oriented architecture (SOA) has the potential to provide solutions for enterprise application integration (EAI) problems. While core service platform technologies exist, methodological approaches that link the business domain with the platform infrastructure− a prerequisite for an EAI solution − are only beginning to mature. We present a framework for integrating service-centric software systems that emphasizes service architecture as the key to the application integration problem and that proposes a service-entric integration architecture layer to coherently bridge the gap between business and platform layers. Domain models act as drivers of the architectural development and integration process. A dedicated and empirically developed service-specific architecture solution, based on an adaptation of the QUASAR Enterprise methodology, utilizes service and architecture identification techniques.

International travel has significant implications on the study of architecture. This study analyzed ways in which undergraduate and graduate students benefited from the experience of international travel and study abroad. Taken from the perspective of 15 individuals who were currently or had been architecture students at the University of Miami and Florida International University or who were alumni of the University of Florida and Syracuse University, the research explored how international travel and study abroad enhanced their awareness and understanding of architecture, and how it complemented their architecture curricula. This study also addressed a more personal aspect of international travel in order to learn how the experience and exposure to foreign cultures had positively influenced the personal and professional development of the participants. Participants’ individual and two-person semi-structured interviews about study abroad experiences were electronically recorded and transcribed for analysis. A second interview was conducted with five of the participants to obtain feedback concerning the accuracy of the transcripts and the interpretation of the data. Sketch journals and design projects were also analyzed from five participants and used as data for the purposes of better understanding what these individuals learned and experienced as part of their study abroad. Findings indicated that study abroad experiences helped to broaden student understanding about architecture and urban development. These experiences also opened the possibilities of creative and professional expression. For many...

In the last 15 years, software architecture has emerged as an important software engineering field for managing the development and maintenance of large, software-intensive systems. Software architecture community has developed numerous methods, techniques, and tools to support the architecture process (analysis, design, and review). Historically, most advances in software architecture have been driven by talented people and industrial experience, but there is now a growing need to systematically gather empirical evidence about the advantages or otherwise of tools and methods rather than just rely on promotional anecdotes or rhetoric. The aim of this paper is to promote and facilitate the application of the empirical paradigm to software architecture. To this end, we describe the challenges and lessons learned when assessing software architecture research that used controlled experiments, replications, expert opinion, systematic literature reviews, observational studies, and surveys. Our research will support the emergence of a body of knowledge consisting of the more widely-accepted and well-formed software architecture theories.; Davide Falessi, Muhammad Ali Babar, Giovanni Cantone, Philippe Kruchten

In the last years, wireless sensor networks (WSNs) are acquiring more importance as a promising technology based on tiny devices called sensor nodes or motes able to monitor a wide range of physical phenomenon through sensors. Numerous branches of science are being benefited. The intrinsic ubiquity of sensor nodes and the absence of network infrastructure make possible their deployment in hostile or, up to now, unknown environments which have been typically unaccessible for humans such as volcanos or glaciers, providing precise and up-to-date data. As potential applications continue arising, both new technical and conceptual challenges appear. The severe hardware restrictions of sensor nodes in relation to computation, communication and specifically, energy, have posed new and exciting requirements. In particular, research is moving towards heterogeneous networks that will contain different devices running custom WSN operating systems. Operating systems specifically designed for sensor nodes are intended to efficiently manage the hardware resources and facilitate the programming. Nevertheless, they often lack the generality and the high-level abstractions expected at this abstraction layer. Consequently, they do not completely hide either the underlying platform or its execution model...

This dissertation considers some aspects of architecture's relationship to the body as living flesh. It focuses on the limits that distinguish bodies that "live" in and for architecture from troubling corporealities: numb, immobile, dying. The body's vitality would seem to be the logical underpinning for architecture. But other bodily states may insinuate themselves into an architectural work as a disruption of the cultural and social norms it would support. This dissertation explores the reasons for this phenomenon, ways to read its manifestations in architectural form, and its consequences for understanding architecture and the body. An analysis of texts by Louise Pelletier and Alberto Perez-Gomez, Beatriz Colomina, and Aldo Rossi maps different ways that architectural discourse's reliance on movement and sensation is disturbed by bodies that are immobile, injured, dying, or dead. A review of Michel Foucault's notion of bio-power considers how architecture may extend instrumental conceptions of the body to greater areas of human experience. An overview of Michel de Certeau's investigations addresses this apparent impasse and theorizes the architectural work as a site for questioning the body's instrumentalization. Special attention to de Certeau's notion of a scriptural economy organized around the body's ephemerality suggests reading architecture through a "deposition of the body" that seeks indications of corporealities that are not "alive" for architecture. A reading of Herzog and de Meuron's Stone House considers how architectural qualities may resonate with problems surrounding infantile corporeality...

Dans un contexte de globalisation et de profusion des discours identitaires, la thèse examine le concept d’identité, ses définitions et ses usages dans les débats et les pratiques de la ville, de l’architecture et du patrimoine. Les interventions sur un bâtiment historique révèlent autant le rapport identitaire de la société avec son histoire que celui avec le monde contemporain. La recherche traite de concours d’architecture dans deux villes canadiennes qui aspirent à se positionner à l’échelle internationale, l’une focalisant sur l’aspect contemporain global et l’autre sur l’aspect historique et local. L’objectif de la recherche est d’une part de contribuer au dévoilement du processus de construction identitaire des villes contemporaines à travers les projets d’architecture. D’autre part, il s’agit d’analyser le processus d’identification et l’identité architecturale dans son rapport à l’histoire et à la contemporanéité dans la pratique au sein de bâtiments historiques. La ville devient un objet de communication, qui use de marketing urbain, pour augmenter sa visibilité. L’architecture devient un moyen de communication utilisé pour transmettre une identité visuelle.

As manifestações da arquitetura neocolonial em várias cidades do interior paulista, no período de 1920 a 1950, é o tema central desta tese. Realiza pesquisas e reflexões acerca da ascendência do movimento neocolonial, tomando Ricardo Severo como intelectual que recebeu grande influência do ambiente cultural português. Explora a ocorrência dessa arquitetura na esfera institucional e particular, em obras oficiais, institucionais, religiosas, assistenciais, educativas, recreativas, residenciais e comerciais. Verifica que a difusão se deu, em grande medida, pela atuação de profissionais que estavam em contato com os debates que se desenrolavam na capital paulista e pela implantação de obras emblemáticas em cidades do interior do estado. Verifica também que parte significativa da produção de baixo padrão - ou simplificada - da arquitetura que pretendia expressar a tendência neocolonial foi de responsabilidade de profissionais diplomados. Utiliza o método de levantamento de processos de aprovação de obras, arquivados em prefeituras municipais, levantamento de dados em museus e outras instituições e levantamentos fotográficos para registrar e analisar a produção de interesse. Representa uma contribuição para o conhecimento da arquitetura neocolonial fora da capital paulista.; This thesis investigates expressions of the neo-colonial architecture...

This thesis explores the implementation of the American Marshall Plan in France and its precipitation of structural changes within the realms of economics, politics, and cultural subjectivity, studying their manifestations in both the built work of the postwar reconstruction and its concurrent discourse on architecture and urbanism. In the turn from the interwar classical to the postwar Keynesian economy, there followed a cultural transformation that resulted in the social welfare state. The consequence is what Deleuze would describe as a shift from mechanisms of discipline to societies of control, where the mass subject controlled by centralized agents would transform to the active subject of a middle class physically operating of the mechanisms of agency that control them, this thesis studies the architectural manifestation of this transformation. Through the discursive projects set out in the journals I'Architecture d'aujourd'hui and Techniues et Architecture, as well as through a study of Orleans, Le Havre, and Maubeuge - reconstruction cities whose architects encompassed a range of formal styles - there was a development in postwar reconstruction architecture that ran parallel to that of the modernist project; one that ultimately displaced the authority of CIAM and precipitated a rejection of architectural modernism with the emergence of Team X thinking.; (cont.) This discourse intends to offset the standard historiography of postwar architecture as a modernist aesthetic lineage...

There is no such thing as an unadorned building. While the the role and relevance of ornament in architecture has been criticized for centuries, its position has been, for the most part, supported as essential to architecture. In his seminal work On the Art of Building in Ten Books, Alberti wrote, "ornament may be defined as a form of auxiliary light and complement to beauty... ornament, rather than being inherent, has the character of something attached or additional." This understanding of ornament stems from the notion that within a work of art or architecture, that which is essential (the work) may be distinguished from that which is supplementary (the ornament).; (cont) Similarly, for Immanuel Kant ornament is "only an adjunct, and not an intrinsic constituent..." Kant suggests that the work exists on the level of the primary, with respect to that of the secondariness of its ornamentation. Therefore ornament, in this primitive form, is something tacked on to that which is already complete in itself. Regardless of the specific nature of its use, or the extent of its distinguishability from structure, ornament is still typically thought of as an adjunct to architecture. It is required to conform to predetermined logics of space...

What constitutes sustainable architecture? Clearly, this is a question very much in vogue nowadays, and contemporary responses have been framed for the most part by topics such as new building technologies, energy conservation, climatically and environmentally responsive design, recyclable materials, and so on. Though sustainable architecture must certainly be about many, if not all of these things, my thesis proposes a much more familiar architectural response. Namely, I argue that the design of spaces that facilitate and promote communities is not only a necessary condition for a sustainable architecture, it is the necessary pre-condition. How does an architecture facilitate and promote communities? I have chosen the problem of housing as the vehicle to answer this question, because I believe one's living arrangement ought to be a critical opportunity for community life. To take advantage of this opportunity, I have tried to provide for variety and flexibility in public spaces, because these contribute directly to the viability and longevity of any community. I have tried to think of ways that architecture can actually give people something to do, activities that can be shared, perhaps even by cross-sections of society that do not typically have much to do with one another...

This dissertation investigates changes that occurred in architectural culture in respect to conditions of modernity. Large-scale industrialization and urbanization caused dramatic ruptures with traditional social and economic hierarchies, forcing a reconceptualization of the theoretical constructs underlying architecture. During the course of the nineteenth century, writers on architecture took an active role in attempting to make sense of these changes. By the end of the century, the Viennese architect and theorist Adolf Loos set forth a critical project, often in confrontation with the views of others, to overcome the growing separation between the realms of reality and representation in design. The particular objective of this study is to situate Loos's texts within the intellectual context of Austrian and German writings on architecture and the practical arts. Such theories prefigure important expressions of modernism in the twentieth century. These writings also express a deep range of thoughts on the changing material and intellectual conditions affecting the visual arts. They exemplify a long series of attempts to create a unified identity for architecture in a world of new social relations and value systems. Despite amorphous conditions which favored social heterogeneity and difference...

The victorious Israeli acquisition of East Jerusalem during the 1967 War set off industrious construction intended to turn a modernist Israeli town and an ancient Jordanian city into "a united (and indivisible)" Israeli Jerusalem. This dissertation questions the reasons and venues for the consequent architectural break with high modernism that defined the built landscape of Jerusalem between 1967 and the first political defeat of Labor Zionism in 1977. For Mayor Teddy Kollek, who aspired to legitimate Israeli rule over Jerusalem on cultural and aesthetic grounds, architects were indispensable agents. However, invited luminaries, like Louis Kahn, Bruno Zevi, Philip Johnson and Lewis Mumford, forcefully attacked Jerusalem's modernist masterplan in favor of a spiritual and historical theme for the city. Their criticism became the catalyst for a beautification campaign that intriguingly resembled the British Mandate's "colonial regionalism." It also inspired younger Israeli-born architects whose quest to create an "architecture of the place" was ambivalently modeled after the Palestinian vernacular. By casting this architecture as biblical, primitive or Mediterranean, these architects emerged as interlocutors who mediated national identity into built and lived environment...

peer-reviewed; There are many good reasons why organizations should perform software architecture reconstructions. However, few organizations are willing to pay for the effort. Software architecture reconstruction must be viewed not as an effort on its own but as a contribution in a broader technical context, such as the streamlining of products into a product line or the modernization of systems that hit their architectural borders, that is require major restructuring. In this paper we propose the use of architecture reconstruction to support System Modernization through the identification and reuse of legacy components as services in a Service- Oriented Architecture (SOA). A case study showing how architecture reconstruction was used on a system to support an organization’s decision-making process is presented.

The performance of an on-chip interconnection architecture used for communication between IP cores depends on the efficiency of its bus architecture. Any bus architecture having advantages of faster bus clock speed, extra data transfer cycle, improved bus width and throughput is highly desirable for a low cost, reduced time-to-market and efficient System-on-Chip (SoC). This paper presents a survey of WISHBONE bus architecture and its comparison with three other on-chip bus architectures viz. Advanced Micro controller Bus Architecture (AMBA) by ARM, CoreConnect by IBM and Avalon by Altera. The WISHBONE Bus Architecture by Silicore Corporation appears to be gaining an upper edge over the other three bus architecture types because of its special performance parameters like the use of flexible arbitration scheme and additional data transfer cycle (Read-Modify-Write cycle). Moreover, its IP Cores are available free for use requiring neither any registration nor any agreement or license.; Comment: 18 pages

Anonymous cloud architecture provides secure environment for business and also e-commerce approaches. By using this type of architecture, we can propose anonymous online applications. Customers who need secure and reliable online services should pay for provided services. A big problem is electronic payment that is needed for billing customers. But customer identity should be remained anonymous during and also after payment procedure. In this paper we propose a novel and modified anonymous architecture that ensures customers that hide their identity from others. This architecture is used from common network protocols and we eliminate Tor anonymous service from architecture design space because of independency. The here is introduced scalability parameter in anonymous cloud architecture design space. After all we compare proposed architecture with other popular cloud architectures in this range and we obtain its advantages according to efficiency, security and anonymity.; Comment: in proceeding of the first international conference on Electronic Commerce and Economy, Tehran, April 2013

This dissertation examines the relationship between architecture and democratic politics in late-modernity. It identifies the refusal of architects to consider the political dimensions of their work following the failures of 20th century High Modernism and the scant attention that the intersection between architecture and politics has received from political theorists as a problem. In order to address these deficiencies, the dissertation argues for the continued impact of architecture and urban planning on modern subject formation, ethics, and politics under the conditions of de-centralized sovereignty that characterize late-modernity. Following an opening chapter which establishes the mutual relation architectural design and political culture in the founding text of political science, Aristotle's Politics, the dissertation offers a genealogical critique of modern architectural design and urban planning practices. It concludes that modern architecture shapes individual and collective political possibilities and a recursive relationship exists between the spaces "we" inhabit and the people that "we" are. In particular, it finds that there is a strong link between practices of external circulation and the interior circulation of thoughts about the self and others. The dissertation concludes by proposing a new understanding of architecture that dynamically relates the design of material structures and the forms of political practices that those designs facilitate. This new definition of architecture combines political theorist Hannah Arendt's concept of "world-building action" with the concept of the "threshold" developed and refined by Dutch architects Aldo van Eyck and Herman Hertzberger.
