    Efficient parallell architectures for future radar signal processing2007Doctoral thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The processing demands on future embedded radar signal processors may stretch to several trillions of floating-point operations per second (TFLOPS). This is an increase of two to three orders of magnitude realtive to the requirements of today. Still, the tight size and power constraints are unchanged. To meet this, new, highly parallel computer systems are needed. The systems should efficiently deliver very high performance as well as being general enough. Another challenge for future signal processors is the requirement for having huge working memories that are accessed in complicated patterns.

    This thesis analyses the challenges of two classes of radar signal processing applications, namely Space-Time Adaptive Processing (STAP), which represents performance-intensive applications, and Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) processing, which represents memory-intensive applications. In addition to the actual performance and memory aspects of the applications, the desire for low-effort application development and maintenance is taken into consideration.

    A multiple SIMD architecture is proposed for the STAP calculations. This architecture gives a combination of the high computational density in the SIMD processing modules with the overall flexibility provided on the system level. An embedded signal processing system based on the architecture is shown to be capable of TFLOPS class performance using standard CMOS VLSI technology available in the year 2001. The system is, for the given application domain, considered to have the same generality as commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) hardware, but has several years of time lead over COTS with regard to the computational performance.

    The studied SAR processing is characterized by operating on huge data sets and having varying, non-linear data access paths. For this, algorithm solutions and execution schemes in inerplay with a system parallelization approach are proposed. It is shown that it is possible to obtain efficient memory accesses, despite the omplicated memory access patterns. It is also shown that the computational burden from complex interpolation kernels can be reduced through extensive calculation reuse.

    Efficient engineering of complex applications in this context is discussed. The use of semi-transparent, platform-based development is demonstrated for STAP and SAR, and advocated for obtaining high engineering defficiency and long system sustainability, as well as high performance efficiency.

    The overall conclusion drawn from this work is that a solid knowledge of the application domain and its future requirements, in combination with an understanding of its interaction with computational architectures, potentially enables several years of lead time in the realization of new, advanced signal prodcessing products. The important requirements on programmability and sustainability must also be taken into account in order to achieve a viable signal processing solution.

    Auchenorrhyncha community composition inrestored wetlands of different age in Southwest of Sweden:: Can different communities or species be used as indicators for naturalness?2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 15 credits / 22,5 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Våtmarker är hotade ekosystem som är artrika och tillhandahåller viktiga ekosystemtjänster. Man började restaurera våtmarker i Sverige som åtgärd inom jordbruket för minskad avrinning av närsalter, men senare även ur bevarandebiologiskt perspektiv. Främst riktades insatserna mot fåglar och däggdjur, men numera även många insekter.

    Insekter används alltmer som indikatorer för olika ändamål och Auchenorrhyncha (stritar) utgör en sådan grupp som börjat få alltmer uppmärksamhet. Då de livnär sig på växtsaft, förekommer i stort sett överallt där vaskulära växter har sin utbredning och ofta har specifika krav på både habitat och födoväxter, uppfyller de därmed många av kraven som ställs på en indikatorart. Stritar valdes därför för att se om de kan nyttjas som indikatorer på restaurerade våtmarkers grad av “naturalness”.

    Håvning och uppsamling med modifierad lövblås användes för att samla stritarna. Analyser över artfördelningen I landskapet visade signifikanta resultat på en icke slumpartad fördelning av arterna över de olika insamlingslokalerna och indikatorarter kunde väljas varefter ett modifierat index användes för att uppskatta arternas kvalité. Statistiska analysmetoder applicerades på insamlade variabler, men utan signifikans. Jaccards coeffcient of community användes för att verifera effektiviteten av insamlingen och det visade sig att jag i snitt samlat 1/3 av de arter som finns i landskapet. Ett fåtal arter uppfyllde kraven och i kombination med ett index över naturalness kunde 4 slutgiltiga arter väljas som indikatorarter. Auchenorrhyncha kan användas som indikatorer på naturalness i restaurerade våtmarker men då resultatet av denna studie inte var övertygande i sig själv bör man i framtida studier kombinera indexmetoderna med andra analyser och taxa för en helhetsbild när det gäller bedömning av naturalness i restaurerade våtmarker. Nya fynd av stritar för Halland och en rödlistad art hittades också i och med detta arbete och kan ses som ett bidrag till en uppdaterad förekomstbild i det svenska landskapet.

    Digital Innovation in the Value Networks of Newspapers2009Doctoral thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    After decades of digital developments, we are now entering a truly digital era. Digital information and communication technology has become a naturally embedded part ofthe designed environment we live in. Most parts of life are today pervaded by digital products and services. Evidence of such immersion can be noted in, for instance, media consumption. This development is gradually shaping and cultivating a media environment that is ubiquitous. Such ubiquity is manifested in media’s constant presence and thechanges in media consumption in the purview of digital innovation. Indeed, digital innovation is not only a shift in technology. It alters existing value networks and calls forrethinking existing value perceptions. While this disruptive change driven by digitizationcan be found in many industries, this thesis focuses on its impact on value networks in thenewspaper industry.The digitization of newspapers started with the introduction of the internet in the 90´sand soon emerged into new media innovations. While these new media innovations have not replaced existing media, they have been disruptive to newspaper value networks. Recently, the emergence of yet another digital innovation is specifically interesting whenstudying changes to value networks of the newspaper industry: the e-paper. This innovation (a screen technology very close to print on paper) exhibits inherent valuesthat make future replacement of print on paper a possibility. It is therefore regarded as avery promising technology in the newspaper industry. This thesis can be positioned at the intersection of the friction between forces to embarkon a new media trajectory and forces to hang on to the established structures andcontrol. The research question addressed in this thesis is: How are value networks of newspapers influenced by digital innovation? Addressing the research question, a multimethod approach was adopted to gain a broad understanding of how digital innovationinfluences value networks of newspapers. Drawing on digital innovation literature, the thesis presents a theoretical perspective with which to understand how digital innovation influences value networks. This perspective is instantiated as a model of value network configuration. The model emphasizes the multi-layered, dynamic, dialectic, and diametrical character of value networks in digital innovation. The model is offered as abasis and analytical tool to further explore value networks in digital innovation. This tool is useful for newspaper stakeholders when entering the digital era.

    Mobile service value: presenting the newspaper publisher view on how to attract users and advertisers2006In: Proceedings of the 29th IRIS, 2006, p. 19-Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper presents results from a study of news publisher’s perceptions of reader and advertiser value of mobile services. Literature on mobile service features and benefits has been used to discuss these values. The study was conducted in 10 European newspaper publishing organizations. The data on the value perceptions was analyzed iteratively to discover patterns of attributes, and resulted in a set of values for readers respectively advertisers. These finding suggest a re-shaped service model for newspaper publishers. The perception of reader values are availability, experience, relevance, sociability, and credibility, and of advertiser value mass coverage, targeting, tracking and mediating. This set of value attributes can be of guidance for content-providing organizations attempting to practice a value-centered approach to mobile service design.

    Towards a Ubiquitous Media Environment: Adding the e-newspaper Channel2006In: Proceedings of the Technical Association of the Graphic Arts, TAGA, Sewickley, USA: Technical Association of the Graphic Arts , 2006, p. 1-23Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    As most of today’s media houses publish in multiple channels, theyalso exist in a multitude of infrastructures. Given the ongoing diffusion ofpersonal computers, handheld devices, and mobile telephones as well as theadvent of new technologies such as the e-paper, a new type of ubiquitousinformation environment is emerging. In this paper we give an update on thedevelopment of e-paper technology and provide a literature review ofinfrastructure issues in ubiquitous information environments. From empiricalresults from 19 interviews and 9 workshops with newspaper managers anddesigners in Sweden, Belgium, France and the Netherlands, we address thefollowing research question: What infrastructure considerations arise with theintroduction of a new channel in a ubiquitous media environment?

    Advertising Challenges in Ubiquitous Media Environments2010In: Handbook of Research on Mobile Marketing Management / [ed] Key Pousttchi, Dietmar G Wiedemann, Hershey, PA: Business Science Reference , 2010, p. 77-93Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Mobile advertising opportunities have attracted interest from industry and academics as a response to the trend of diffusion of new mobile technology. One industry particularly interested in new advertising opportunities is the newspaper industry. Many media houses envision a future multi-channel media environment supporting device independent, anytime, anywhere publishing, i.e. a Ubiquitous Media Environment (UME). In this paper we explore how ubiquitous advertising challenges the role of media houses. Ubiquitous advertising refers to advertising in a UME, anytime, anywhere and in any device. Based on results from interviews and workshops with advertisers and publishers we discuss how media houses traditional role is challenged. We contribute with an understanding of how media houses can develop their role to succeed with ubiquitous advertising and to m-advertising literature with insights into the dynamics of balancing consumer and advertiser value of ubiquitous advertising.

    Designing and evaluating the calm electronic newspaper2006In: Proceedings of the 14th European Conference on Information Systems, ECIS 2006 / [ed] Jan Ljungberg, Göteborg: IT-universitetet, Göteborgs universitet , 2006, p. 12-Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper reports from an ongoing action research study concerning the design of the future e-newspaper, i.e. a newspaper on e-paper technology. The e-paper innovation is of great importance to the newspaper publishers since it has the potential of eventually replacing the printed newspaper due to its readability and high contrast. This study addresses the challenge of how to design calm user experience of the e-newspaper. The action research approach followed the canonical action research method, in collaboration with publisher, reader and advertiser clients. The activities include a range of data collection techniques such as project meetings, workshops, interviews and prototype testing. In the diagnosing phase we identified the core challenges for designing the e-newspaper which directed us to the literature of calm technology. Three design principles for calm user experience were formulated in the action planning phase, followed by designing three e-newspaper prototypes, which embeds the design principles, in the action taking phase. The prototypes were evaluated with 36 readers in the evaluating phase and the outcome of these evaluations was later assessed in collaboration with newspaper designers for specifying learning. The results indicate that the design principles support calm user experience.

    Mobile Service Adoption: the Swedish Case Between 2006 and 20082008Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper describes the development of mobile service adoption between 2006 and 2008 using the Global Acceptance of Technology model (GAT) for categorization. Two online surveys were conducted, one in 2006 and one in 2008. The online questionnaires were presented at the web sites at two Swedish newspapers with comparable circulation. The sample from 2006 includes 131 respondents and the 2008 sample include 152 respondents. The samples have comparable distribution of gender, age and mobile phone penetration. The findings show a positive development in mobile service adoption in Sweden from 2006 to 2008, e.g. a large portion of the users have upgraded their mobile phones to 3G, the cost is nolonger an important barrier for adoption and users seem to be more acquainted with using mobile services and therefore do not regard mobile services to be as complicated. However, the value of mobile services was generally rated lower in 2008 than in 2006, suggesting a new challenge for the mobile service producers.

    The vision of ubiquitous media services: How close are we?2007In: Human interface and the management of information: Symposium on Human Interface 2007, held as part of HCI International 2007, Beijing, China, July 22 - 27, 2007 : proceedings. P. 2, Interacting in information environments / [ed] Michael J. Smith, Gavriel Salvendy, Berlin / Heidelberg: Springer Berlin/Heidelberg, 2007, p. 222-232Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The high penetration of mobile devices implies that we are closing up to the vision of ubiquitous media environments. This paper reports from a broad survey about barriers, use patterns, and motivations for using mobile media services. The aim is to contribute to the understanding of mobile service adoption process by studying users in different phases of the adoption process. The findings imply that mobile services are still not adopted and ubiquitously ingrained in use patterns. There is still a long way to go.

    Challenges to Newspapers in Digital Platform Ecosystems2015In: MCIS 2015 Proceedings, Mediterranean Conference on Information Systems (MCIS) , 2015, p. Paper 14-Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Incumbent content providers such as newspapers experience radical changes in their business environment. Digital platforms are becoming increasingly important to innovate digital media services and business. The generativity of digital platforms afforded by digital technology offers new opportunities, but also new challenges. Digital platforms exist in an ecosystem of complex networks of actorsand resources. In this paper we shed light on the challenges for incumbent content providers to adapt to and realize business opportunities in digital platforms. We do this from the viewpoints of newspaper management, platform provider and analysts of media business.

    Abstract [en]

    Digital innovation is rapidly reshaping society, affecting fundamental aspects of our everyday activities and lives. This development is accompanied with benefits as well as social dilemmas. In this paper we approach this class of challenges in IS digital innovation research. We investigate how social challenges are attended in research agendas, and reflect upon social challenges emerging from a digital service innovation project. Based on the empirical case, we present a scenario that illustrates how social challenges can unfold in digital service innovation. The case exemplifies three conflicts of interest that are used to discuss implications for the research agendas for digital innovation. We propose that explicit attention is paid to social and ethical challenges, taking a large scale and interdisciplinary approach on social and ethical challenges in digital ecosystems.

    Identifiering av riskzoner för större vilt inom Halmstad kommuns vägnät2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    An increased infrastructure is one of today’s biggest reasons for the fragmentation ofhabitats, making it harder for wildlife to move without risks when crossing roads. To see inwhich extent larger mammals crosses roads greenways were identified in the urban parts ofHalmstad municipality, after which a study was made on the presence of wildlife duringwinter 2015/2016. Ten areas were chosen along road 600 (Tylösandsvägen), road 610(Kustvägen), trunk road 15, trunk road 25 and trunk road 26 where inventories were carriedout for a period of seven days distributed over a period of two months. Wildlife abundanceof moose, roe deer, fallow deer, red deer, hare, wild boar, badger, red fox, wolf and lynxwere investigated by identification of track stamps in order to find out if any of the tenplaces constitutes a danger zone for wildlife-vehicle accidents and if there are anydifferences in wildlife abundance close to and further from the road as well as in woodlandand open land. The result of the study along with wildlife accident statistics show that someof the investigated areas form danger zones for larger animals; two adjacent areas alongtrunk road 26 and one area along trunk road 15. There were no significant difference inwildlife abundance on different distances from the road which means that wildlife followsthe greenways and do not see the road as an obstacle, thus more likely to crossover. Therewere also no significant difference in wildlife abundance in woodland and open land,meaning wildlife-vehicle accidents are not more likely to occur in one type of land over theother.

    Beredskapsplan vid livsmedelsrelaterade utbrott: En praktisk vägledning vid utredning av livsmedelsutbrott i mindre kommuner2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Livsmedelsburna sjukdomar är ett globalt problem som orsakar fleramiljoner dödsfall varje år, ändå tros den rapporterande siffran vara enbråkdel av hur många som drabbas. En anledning till svårigheten att vetaden verkliga summan av problemet är bristerna gällande rapportering avlivsmedelsbura sjukdomar.

    Även om Europa ligger i framkant medstrikta krav gällande säkerhet för mat uppkommer ständigt skandalersom visar på ett bristande system. Syftet med studien var att ta fram enberedskapsplan för matförgiftning och andra livsmedelsrelaterade utbrott.Målet var att ta fram en tydlig beredskapsplan som är lätt att användaoch som lämpar sig för mindre kommuner i Sverige.

    Litteraturundersökninggjordes för att samla information till bakgrund samt för att fåen övergripande blick över de olika livsmedelsburna sjukdomarna. Däreftergenomfördes en enkätundersökning gällande hur en beredskapsplanför livsmedelsrelaterade utbrott ser ut i Sveriges mindre kommuner.

    Resultatet visar att inte alla kommuner har en färdig beredskapsplan atttillgå vid större utbrott. Det som anses användbart i en sådan plan ärframförallt mallar för rutiner som exempelvis frågeformulär till densmittade vid en matförgiftning. En anledning till bristen på beredskapsplaneri mindre kommuner tros främst bero på bristande resurser, ökadpersonaltäthet hade enligt resultatet bidragit till ökad tillgång av beredskapsplaner.Utifrån de inkommande enkätsvaren har ett förslag på enberedskapsplan som är enkel att använda utformats.

    Utfasning av miljö- och hälsofarliga kemikalieprodukter för att uppnå miljömålet "Giftfri miljö": Ett exempel från vård- och äldreomsorgsförvaltningen i Alingsås kommun2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Jag har valt att göra ett examensarbete för Alingsås kommun som går ut på att ta reda på vilka kemiska produkter som används inom vård och äldreomsorgen i Alingsås kommun samt komma med förslag och arbetsätt för Alingsås kommun att arbeta mer effektivt med deras utfasningsarbete. Genom att genomföra en litteratursammanställning av miljölagstiftningen, inventera kemikalie produkter som används i äldreboendena samt genomföra intervjuer om andra kommuners kemikaliearbete kan syftet med uppsatsen uppnås. Uppsatsen är en del av arbetet för att uppnå en del av Alingsås miljömål. Arbetet inleddes med en kemikalieinventering för samtliga äldre boenden där alla påträffbara rengöringsprodukter sammanställdes. De kemikalieprodukter som påträffades var rengöringsmedel för olika användningsområden. De rengöringsprodukter som inte var miljömärkta listades i en enskild lista och undersöktes. Meningen med undersökningen var att garantera att inga ämnen i produkterna var särskilt farliga för människors hälsa- och miljö. Resultatet av intervjuerna visade att det skiljer sig mellan olika kommuners kemikaliearbete men svaren visade också att alla kommuner arbetar med någon del som berör kemikaliearbetet men på olika nivåer. Litteraturstudien visar att miljömärkta produkter måste uppfylla en del krav för att bli miljömärkta, genom att använda sig av miljömärkta produkter bidrar man till att minska användingen av skadliga kemiska ämnen som påverkar miljö- och hälsa. Alingsås äldreboenden använder sig inte av några farliga rengöringsprodukter men en del av produkterna är inte miljömärkta som de borde vara enligt kommunens miljöpolicy och borde därför ersättas. Jämförelsevis utifrån de intervjuade kommunerna samt Alingsås kommun ligger Alingsås kommun på en bra nivå i sitt kemikaliearbete. En del bitar behöver utvecklas och med hjälp av enkla metoder kan man skapa ett bättre kemikaliearbete.
