Automated Content Access Protocol v1

ACAP is intended to put content owners back in control of their online content in a way that is conducive to developing new online business models, putting new, high-quality content on the net and to maximizing the benefits of the relationship with search engines and other aggregators. ACAP is destined to become the universal permissions protocol on the Internet, an open, non-proprietary standard through which content owners can communicate permissions for access and use to online intermediaries. Thanks to the enabling, open nature of ACAP, content providers will now be able to make more content available to users through the search engines, and to continue to innovate and invest in the development of business models for network publishing. Every publisher who implements ACAP will have the confidence to make content available to search engines much more widely than is currently the case. No: ACAP is designed to be extensible to all types of content published online, including audio and video. 

ACAP presents a win win for the whole online publishing community with the promise of more high quality content and more innovation and investment in the online publishing sector. ACAP aims to enable the majority of smaller publishers, smaller search engines and other innovative intermediaries to enter the growing market for online content with confidence. Any organization interested into rights expression for media content may join the maintainer of ACAP, the IPTC and its RightsML Working Group. ACAP is unashamedly about commercial content exploitation; CC is more about non-commercial uses. 17) Examples of what you can currently express with ACAP’ allow indexing but specify time limit for storing of content. ACAP Versions 1.0 and 1.1 are deliberately limited to communicating permissions and prohibitions for content use by aggregators. 

The most significant change is in providing explicit rules for how aggregators should interpret some of the more complex forms of expression in ACAP. It has now been made clear that, where an aggregator is unable to interpret a complex permission expression as the publisher clearly intended, the alternative is to interpret the expression as a prohibition, thereby avoiding the risk of using the publisher’s content in ways that the publisher had not intended should be permitted.

The process to create and respond to an RFP or submit a proposal; including finding the right content, managing subject matter expert content contributors, ensuring consistency in format and brand, is often particularly challenging for the limited resources available. Better control over content Stale, outdated, and inaccurate content is an ongoing challenge when responding to RFPs. The ability to have an application that provides intuitive content management features and functionality will make it easier for you to stay up-to-date and modify content. Content owners will be automatically notified when content is about to expire and needs to be refreshed. Automating the proposal process helps to further define and refine security and permissions to your content. 

Increased competitive advantage Without automation, organizations are unable to spend the time necessary to make sure content and messaging provided to the prospective customers distinguishes from the competition. Improving the content to make it more compelling and persuasive will provide the ability to produce unique sales documents. Enhanced visualizations make it easy to digest complex data sets to understand the most effective content, monitor user activity, track win/ loss, manage expired content, and much more. Ease of use Qvidian’s intuitive wizard guides users through the document creation process, selecting and assembling relevant content into cohesive, well-written sales documents. Qvidian grants autonomy to individual users based on role and pertaining requirements – allowing for specified content and graphic libraries ownership, and providing the ability to set and limit permissions to individual or multiple owners – reducing the need to have multiple systems within an organization. 

Global capabilities Qvidian combines global content management capabilities with end user activities. Linking translation functionalities to content stored in multiple languages enables streamlined content management and translation processes, facilitating up-to-date messaging and consistent branding. Partner enablement Qvidian allows preferred points of contact, such as Partners, to access content from directly within the application based on permissions set by the organization, for inclusion into partner specific RFP and proposal documents.

The micro-controller based Automated Irrigation system will serve the following purposes: 1) As there is no un-planned usage of water, a lot of water is saved from being wasted. 2) The irrigation is d only when there is not enough moisture in the soil and the microcontroller decides when should the pump be turned on/off, saves a lot time for the farmers. Table of Contents Motivation Solution o Block Diagram Components used & their interfacing with MSP430 o Soil Moisture Sensor o Seven Segment Display o BCD – 7 Segment Decoder o Mini Push Button Switches Results & Conclusion References Appendix Motivation The increasing demand of the food supplies requires a rapid improvement in food production technology. In an Automated Irrigation System using MSP430, the most significant advantage is that water is supplied only when the moisture in soil goes below a pre-set threshold value. As shown in the block diagram, the inputs to the MSP are the power sensor circuit, soil moisture sensor and the mini push button switches & the outputs are the 7-segment display and the water pump. When the soil moisture sensor detects that there is not enough moisture in the soil it signals the MSP430 by sending it the analog input values as a result of the reading from the soil. 

If the sensor detects no moisture presence in the soil, it signals it to the MSP430, which in turn drives the water-pump. Components used & their interfacing with MSP430 1) Soil Moisture Sensor: This sensor is one of the main parts of our project. If there is less moisture in the soil, the sensor would give an Analog input to the ADC inside the MSP430. The ADC was successfully sampling the analog values given by the soil moisture sensor and we could see the values being stored in the memory register of the ADC. We emulated the soil using a wet tissue paper and when the soil moisture sensor was wrapped inside the wet tissue paper, one of the LED’s of the MSP430 glowed which indicated that the moisture inside the soil was sufficient. 

When the soil moisture sensor was taken out of the wet tissue paper and dried thoroughly, the LED on the MSP430 stopped glowing indicating no moisture in the soil. The integration was not a success but individually, we were able to interface the heart of the project that is the soil moisture sensor to the MSP430.
