Digital CRM consulting and technology provider artegic AG is joining the Location Based Marketing Association (LBMA). With the development of its own technologies and practical cases in location-based marketing and proximity marketing, artegic is an innovative driver for digital best-in-class dialogue marketing. With its membership in the LBMA, artegic is keen to expand its involvement. The Location Based Marketing Association is an international association with the aim of supporting research, education and innovation in location-based communication and services. The goal is simple: Inform, exchange, instruct. This promotes the use and establishment of new services and offers of our member companies. Members of the LBMA include retailers, agencies, advertisers, media, software and service providers as well as mobile phone companies. Worldwide, there are 1200 active companies in the association. Users nowadays are expecting a best-in-class experience in marketing and service: customer-centred, cross-channel, quick response to real time, context-sensitive, highly individualised and relevant at the right moment. Location-based marketing and especially proximity marketing take on an important role here. Proximity marketing identifies mobile users and responds in real time to mobile triggers (e.g. a change in location) with location-based and context-sensitive communication. Event venue provider Weser-Ems-Hallen, for example, uses an app developed by artegic and task communication to send out location-based restaurant vouchers and was thus able to increase the length customers stay at a venue. Proximity marketing is only at the beginning of its development, many scenarios are today only possible via an app, but this is bound to change in the near future. Carsten Szameitat, CEO of the LBMA DACH says: "We are happy to welcome artegic as the newest member of the Location Based Marketing Association. As an international association, our goal is to promote research, education and innovation at the crossroads of man, location and media. A marketing specialist like artegic who focusses on customer-centred dialogue marketing perfectly fits our criteria with its more then 10 years of experience in marketing engineering. We look forward to our collaboration." "Today, customer-centred marketing towards mobile users needs to take into consideration the user context and especially the user location. This applies in the real-time response to mobile triggers. Modern proximity marketing technologies like those of artegic must be able to precisely identify the location of a user even indoors and immediately output suitable communication measures via app push, SMS or mobile messenger. Proximity marketing and location-based marketing are very young disciplines and still offer a lot of room for innovative, new applications. We look forward to promoting these developments together with the Location Based Marketing Association", says Stefan von Lieven, CEO at artegic AG. •    Photo von Lieven and Szameitat (JPG) artegic AG - Know-how and Technology for Online CRM artegic AG supports companies in the construction of loyal and profitable B-to-B and B-to-C customer relations via online channels.

The invention relates to a method for quantifying emitting particles and for characterizing the time-dependent behavior of the particles. The number n of emissions of the particles in the measuring period that have been detected in a time interval having a predetermined interval width within the measuring period is ascertained, wherein the evaluation is performed particularly for a plurality of time intervals having the same interval width, with a distribution function p(n) for the number n of detected emissions being determined. For the interval width different bin times are stipulated, and, for each bin time , the evaluation is performed and a distribution function p_()(n) is ascertained, wherein, for each bin time , moments m_(i,)^(Mess )for the distribution function p_()(n) are ascertained, from which bin time dependent moment functions m_(i)^(Mess)() are presented. Comparison with a theoretical signal function comprising moments m_(i)^(sig)() for the theoretical signal distribution ascertains constants that characterize the particles in the system.


Patent
Huawei and Fraunhofer Gesellschaft | Date: 2015-05-20

The present invention is applicable to the field of communication technologies, and provides a user scheduling method, a master base station, a user equipment, and a heterogeneous network. The method includes: receiving, by a master base station, a downlink interference indicator DII forwarded by a serving slave base station serving a user equipment UE, where the DII is sent to the serving slave base station by the UE attached to the serving slave base station, and when the DII is greater than a preset threshold, the DII indicates that the UE is in a high DII region; determining, according to the DII, whether the UE is in a high DII region; and if the UE is in a high DII region, allocating, when performing scheduling, fewer resources that may interfere with the UE. In the present invention, after receiving the DII fed back by the UE, the slave base station forwards the DII to the master base station; and when the UE is in a high DII region, the master base station actively allocates, when performing scheduling, fewer resources that may interfere with the UE attached to the slave base station, thereby reducing interference received by the UE attached to the slave base station.


The fiber direction of a carbon fiber material of a test object is detected by means of the polarization direction of light reflected by the test object. If, for example, non-polarized light impinges upon carbon fibers, light reflected by the fibers is polarized in fiber direction.
