An Austrian national project carried out by Arsenal Research and MagnaSteyr Fahrzeugtechnik has successfully demonstrated the operation of a cooperative vehicle infrastructure system under real-world conditions. The project was installed on a section of national freeway, and has bidirectional communication facilities, infrastructure-based traffic, weather and road surface data and real-time vehicle (extended floating car) data.

A huge medical problem has to do with handling the details of medical treatment - not only keeping the treatment records themselves - but also communicating the treatment to the patient. With a new technique the record keeping is associated with an "avatar", a computer-generated and computer-manipulated 3-dimensional figure representing the patient.

Is it always better to be informed? How can the Prisoner's Dilemma be solved? Answers to such questions may be provided by game theory. A team at the Institute of Applied Mathematics and Mechanics at the University of Warsaw explores the unexpected consequences of being in a Nash equilibrium. But is this equilibrium really desirable?

According to some estimates, by 2010 WiMAX operators will cover areas inhabited by more than 650 million people. Yet current deployment lags similar previous expectations and predictions. Moreover, non-vendor, third-party empirical evaluations of the technology are far from common. We recently concluded our VoIP and IPTV synthetic traffic measurement and analysis studies over fixed WiMAX at the VTT Converging Networks Laboratory in Oulu, Finland, and briefly report our results here. Moreover, we review our simulation-based studies of extending WiMAX in demanding, mountainous terrains, which are not considered to be the main target deployment environments.
