Bae, Yoon-Sun ;
Journal of Digital Contents Society, volume 12, issue 3, 2011, Pages 263~270
DOI : 10.9728/dcs.2011.12.3.263
The importance of effective delivery of information in the mobile web is increasing in Korea, due to the growing number of smart-phone users. In this study, I took a look at the characteristics of mobile devices and the mobile web, and after researching Korea`s portal websites` mobile web designs, we figured out the users` preferences of mobile web designs through surveys and interviews. To provide compressed information on a small screen, it is ideal for significant contents to show up in the state that does not require scrolling. Users preferred compact and neat designs, and menus that were made with icons that are easy to touch with fingers, in the mobile web. When receiving delivered information, users preferred not only texts but texts that were provided together with photograph images. If usability evaluations and examination of preferences are achieved together, I think it will serve as a mobile web guideline that enables efficient delivery of information in the mobile web.

The latest hardware and software techniques are combined to give safe walking guidance and convenient service of realtime walking assistance system for visually impaired person. This system consists of obstacle detection and perception, place recognition, and sign recognition for pedestrian can safely walking to arrive at their destination. In this paper, we exploit the sign object detection system in subway station for sign recognition that one of the important factors of walking assistance system. This paper suggest the adaptive feature map that can be robustly extract the sign object region from complexed environment with light and noise. And recognize a sign using fast zernike moment features which is invariant under translation, rotation and scale of object during walking. We considered three types of signs as arrow, restroom, and exit number and perform the training and recognizing steps through adaboost classifier. The experimental results prove that our method can be suitable and stable for real-time system through yields on the average 87.16% stable detection rate and 20 frame/sec of operation time for three types of signs in 5000 images of sign database.

The DAISY, an international digital talking book standard, has been established to help reading-disabled people read books normally. As many societies` interests in reading-disabled people are arising, reading environment for them is also getting improved by supplying alternative books. In the digital world, however, there is still lack of e-book playing software for them. In this paper, we design and partially implement an android smartphone e-book viewer. By analyzing the features and relations of DAISY3 files, we can find several important design points to properly implement DAISY3 viewer. We are sure, when using our results, that various DAISY3-compliant e-book viewers can be implemented easily and quickly.

Lim, Seog-Ku ;
Journal of Digital Contents Society, volume 12, issue 3, 2011, Pages 299~307
DOI : 10.9728/dcs.2011.12.3.299
The MAC of IEEE 802.11 WLAN to control data transmission uses two control methods called DCF and PCF. The DCF controls the transmission based on CSMA/CA The BEB backoff algorithm of DCF shows relatively excellent performance in situation that the number of competing station is less, but has a problem that performance of throughput and delay is degraded in situation that the number of competing station is increased. This paper mathematically analyzes an MIMD backoff algorithm considering retry limit that increases the CW to doubled after collision and decreases smoothly the CW to halves after successful transmission in order to reduce the collision probability. To prove efficiency of the MIMD backoff algorithm, lots of simulations are conducted and analyzed.

Digital talking book has been developed to enhance reading experiences for reading-disabled people. In the existing digital talking book, however, annotations can be created only through the screen interfaces. Screen annotation interfaces is of no use for reading-disabled people because they need reader`s eyesight. In this paper, we suggest a voice annotation technique can create notes and highlights at any playing time by using hearing sense and voice command. We design a location determination technique that pinpoints where a voice annotation should be placed in the playing sentences. To verify the effectiveness of our voice annotation technique, we implement a prototype in an android platform. We can find out by the black-blindfolded users testing that our system can perfectly locate the exact position that a voice annotation should be placed into.

Lee, Hyun-Jin ; Jee, Tae-Chang ;
Journal of Digital Contents Society, volume 12, issue 3, 2011, Pages 339~345
DOI : 10.9728/dcs.2011.12.3.339
The k-means has been one of the popular, simple and faster clustering algorithms, but the right value of k is unknown. The value of k (the number of clusters) is a very important element because the result of clustering is different depending on it. In this paper, we present a novel algorithm based on an external cluster relationship criterion which is an evaluation metric of clustering result to determine the number of clusters dynamically. Experimental results show that our algorithm is superior to other methods in terms of the accuracy of the number of clusters.

DOI : 10.9728/dcs.2011.12.3.347
In HIPERLAN/2, the radio channels are assigned by AP(Access Point) that is centrally operated and the MAC protocol is based on TDMA/TDD. Mobile terminal that data transmission is necessary to uplink requests radio resource to AP through RCH channel. The changing number of RCHs in each MAC frame is important because too many RCHs may result in a waste of radio resources and too few RCHs may result in many access collisions and prolong time that connect to AP. Hence the number of RCH should be allocated properly according to traffic. From these point, this paper proposes an scheme that dynamically assigned the number of RCH which is based on the number of success and collision of message in previous MAC frame. To prove efficiency of proposed scheme, lots of simulations are conducted and analyzed.

Reading and writing in the past make noble significance in `narration`, in other words, in `the creation of narration`, through the process of `recording`; but in the modern times, it engenders controversies over narration and linearity. In other words, reading/writing in digital era, is devalued as the simple arrangement of test or the connection of vast information without narration nor linearity. However, the reading/writing through text and hypertext reading is not the phenomenon which should be criticized because of the lack of narration or linearity-not only the lack of narration and linearity -, a process of social and cultural transition; it should be revalued as a result. The change of reading and writing methods will inevitably accompany the layers, status, significance and value of the contents; thus it makes more sense, when the reading and writing methods in digital contents are approached as new pop culture phenomenon. This is the "The prose of everyday life", based on pop culture and "The society of Conversation", based on communication; proposed `Digitelling` ; this is the reason why we should pay attention to the digital contents, created infinitely by the citizens of the world, as new mass-culture phenomenon.

The purpose of this study was to examine major motivations for using SNSs and the effect of them on SNS participation. In order to address the research questions, 253 undergraduate and graduate students participated. Results of the study were summarized as follows. First, Cyworld was mainly used followed by Facebook and Twitter. Most of the respondents had access to SNSs via smart devices. The average frequency of SNS use was 1-3 times a day and they used them less than 30 minutes a time. The reasons why they started to use SNSs were mainly to follow current trends, maintain friendship, and accept acquaintances recommendations. Second, the result of component analysis derived four primarily underlying dimensions related to SNS use; self-satisfaction, social interaction, recreation, and information seeking. Third, both self-satisfaction and social interaction motivation had significant correlation with SNS participation. The results of multiple regression analysis showed that self motivation was more influential on active participation than social interaction and information seeking motivation.
