Dakota Consulting's Antoine Fillinger wins the Best Demo Award at the 2008 IEEE World of Wireless and Multimedia conference in Newport Beach, CA.

June 1, 2008

Antoine's Best Demo Award was for his outstanding demonstration and work on the NIST Data Flow System II (NDFS-II). NDFS-II is a middleware for sensor data acquisition, transport and distributed processing. It offers network transparent services to build multimodal applications. An application is represented as a data flow graph, with streaming data flowing between the different computational components allocated on a local network of systems. It was originally developed to support research on pervasive environments such as smart spaces but it also facilitates the development of complex multimedia applications with very high bandwidth requirements and the simulation of large complex systems.
