Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

Future mobile systems are expected to offer users flexible access to information and services using a combination of different end-user devices in a personal distributed environment (PDE). With PDEs able to operate over multiple air interfaces and heterogeneous networks, requiring seamless and rapid service provision, a flexible and fair trading of communication services is required. For. this reason, a digital marketplace (DMP) is proposed. The DMP is based on an agent framework capable of enabling real-time service negotiation over disparate networks according to users' price and QoS requirements. The paper discusses the security threats and challenges to the PDE, and also to a DMP implementation.
