Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) systems are emerging as one of the most pervasive computing technologies due to their low cost and their broad applicability. RFID systems consist of tiny integrated circuits equipped with antennas (RFID tags) that communicate with their reading devices (RFID readers) using radio-frequency waves without line of sight. This creates tremendous opportunities for linking various objects from real world. These objects are numbered, identified, cataloged, and tracked. RFID systems present many advantages and features that cannot be found in other ubiquitous computing environments. RFID communication is fast, convenient and its application can substantially save time, improve services, reduce labor cost, thwart product counterfeiting and theft, increase productivity gains and maintain quality standards. Common applications range from highway toll collection, supply chain management, public transportation, controlling building access, animal tracking, developing smart home appliances and remote keyless entry for automobiles to locating children.

While RFID provides promising benefits such as inventory visibility and business process automation, some significant challenges need to be overcome before these benefits can be realized. One important issue is how to process and manage RFID data, which is typically in large volume, noisy and unreliable, time-dependent, dynamically changing, and of varying ownership. Another issue is how to seamlessly integrate low-level RFID data into (existing) enterprise information infrastructures (e.g., upper-level business processes). Finally, RFID systems present a number of inherent vulnerabilities with serious potential security implications. Indeed, given the ability of inexpensively tagging and thus monitoring a large number of items and/or people, RFID raises some serious security and privacy concerns. RFID systems are vulnerable to a broad range of malicious attacks ranging from passive eavesdropping to active interference. RFID privacy and security are stimulating research areas that involve rich interplay among many disciplines, such as signal processing, hardware design, privacy rights, and cryptography.

IWRT 2011 aims at providing a forum for discussion on some emerging developments in the RFID research ground. There were 11 papers submitted from 9 different countries. The international Program Committee eventually selected 5 full papers. We thank all authors who submitted their papers and the Program Committee members for their excellent work. We hope that the present proceedings will contain enough food for thought to push the RFID utilization to new heights.

Workshop on Wireless Networked Control Systems (WNCS-2011)

d Fisk University, USA
Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) have been widely used because of flexibility, lower costs and scalability that they have been shown to provide. The pace of application in the context of wireless networked control systems (WNCSs) has been significantly impeded, however, by the reluctance of industry to make the accommodations necessary to allow wireless paths to be incorporated in process control loops. Many sensors in a modern industrial plant are used for closed-loop control, so the numerous potential WSN applications that exist in the process and manufacturing industries make this impediment extremely serious. One problem is that there are conflicts between maintaining control loop performance on one hand, which can be degraded by many WSN issues, such as delays in wireless paths (latency), low data rates, irregular arrival of data (jitter) and electromagnetic interference; and meeting the usual objectives in managing a WSN, namely freedom to configure the network and to adjust data rates at will, to maximize efficiency and to conserve energy consumption in the network nodes.

WNCS-2011 aims at providing a forum for discussion on some emerging developments in the WNCS between the industry and academia. Submissions to this workshop covered a number of current research topics in WSN including energy consumption, delay-reliability in industrial WSNs, fuzzy Petri net controller, wireless sensor and actor networks (WSANs).

We would like to thank the authors who submitted papers, thereby making this workshop possible. We would also like to express our gratitude to the program committee members for ensuring a good technical program by selecting quality research papers. Their professionalism in reviewing and commenting on submitted papers in a timely manner were important to making this workshop a reality.

We wish you all a rewarding and productive experience at both the WNCS workshop and the ANT-2011 conference.

AmbienT Intelligence at the services of inFo-mobility and Critical Transportation networks (ARTIFACT)

Preface

Raffaele De Amicis, Giuseppe Conti, Daniele Magliocchetti, Federico De Vigili



Fondazione Graphitech, Italy

Recent years have seen the increasing success of navigation technologies, fuelled by the booming market of retail personal navigation systems. Expected technological development will increase the diffusion and acceptance of transportation services based on localization technologies. This, together with the constantly increasing number of real-time sensor information available from the web, challenges the extension of the paradigm of Ambient Intelligence from indoor to complex outdoor scenarios to set the basis for new mobility concepts based on more effective infomobilty systems as well as management platform for critical transportation networks.

Widespread diffusion of novel info-mobility services promoting multi-modal transport will have a profound impact on citizen’s lives, in terms of safety, efficiency and environmental sustainability. On the other hand, management of key transportation infrastructures such as railways, main roads and motorways plays a strategic role, as they are very intensely used and susceptible to decay and congestion. The complexity of urban areas requires defining complex intelligent infrastructures that can be used to track and facilitate mobility according to persons, vehicles. These challenges are at the base of the workshop on “AmbienT Intelligence at the services of inFo-mobility and Critical Transportation networks” (ARTIFACT).

The event is the second of a series of workshops organized by the partners of the i-Tour “intelligent Transport system for Optimized URban trips” consortium. The project i-Tour has received funding from the European Community’s Seventh Framework Programme (FP7/2007-2013) under the Grant Agreement number 234239.

We wish to thank those authors from the i-Tour consortium who have contributed, with their support, to this workshop. Last but not least, we wish to thank grateful to the ANT 2011 workshop co-chairs for their continuous support and cooperation.
