OR.NET and WS4D.org at CeBIT 2014

March 6th, 2014

Consider a world where you can assemble a hospital’s operating room just the way you assemble your living room. Imagine that you could buy different medical devices from different vendors, selecting each device due to its functionality, pricing or what ever property you prefer.

The research project OR.NET aims at making this possible by fostering manufacturer-independent networked interconnection of medical devices. OR.NET is funded by the BMBF and comprises more than 50 partners from academia and industry.

WS4D.org and the University of Rostock are participating in OR.NET as well. We are going to show our current results at the CeBIT 2014 from March, 10th till March, 14th. Come and visit us in hall 9, booth A08 to see our networked endoscope.

In cooperation with Karl Storz GmbH & Co. KG and Dr. Klaus Wagner from the Südstadtklinikum Rostock we enriched an existing endoscope with DPWS functionality and thus made in Plug’n'Play-ready. Together with Plug-and-Play-ready devices to measure a patient’s pulse and oxygen saturation we developed earlier, we created a medical dashboard combining the endoscopic images with vital signs – while completely dynamically interconnected.

First WS4D Workshop

October 18th, 2012

In the last years the “TeKoMed”-Workshops have been a great opportunity to get in touch with developers, scientists and industry in the fields of the Devices Profile for Web Services (DPWS), information technology in medical applications and related areas of interest. However, the TeKoMed project was successfully concluded and consequently no similar event will be organized by the former project partners.

To preserve the opportunity of exchange about recently finished, currently ongoing and future research and development around the field of embedded web services but also to foster discussion within the community, we want to continue the workshop series. The idea remains the same, however location and name will change.

You can find more information on the workshop website at http://www.ws4d.org/workshop

WS4D-uEXI available as Open Source

May 11th, 2012

We have finally made it to publish our Efficient XML Interchange (EXI) parser as Open Source. The implementation is called WS4D-uEXI. The ‘u’ stands for ‘micro’ and yes, this means it has really small footprint. uEXI is designed to run on WSN/6LoWPAN mote class devices with only tens of kB RAM and ROM. You will find some more information, documentation and of course also the code on the WS4D-uEXI project website at Google Code. Fell free to join the project and contribute!
