Laboratory personal working in a clean room or laboratory has different laboratory devices available. Almost each device needs different input data and produces different output data. It is time-consuming to adopt each device to another. The mobile and universal communication infrastructure Message to Anywhere (M2A) challenges this problem by providing a common communication infrastructure to which all laboratory devices are connected, can exchange data and use applications in the network. Another benefit of M2A is to provide important data to the lab personal, wherever they are located. This mobility results in an improved reaction time, whenever any decisions are needed, such as the reaction on an alarm of a laboratory device. M2A supports the use of web-access and mobile devices such as PDA, Smartphone, Tablet PC and Notebook without the need to install software on these devices.
The key component in M2A to achieve the universal communication is the innovative mechanism to route over multiple dimensions of transport technologies. This mechanism will be technically described on the poster. The following use case explains the routing functionality:
Figure 1: Example of Routing Functionality
1. Every device is connected to the M2A messaging bus with a generic M2A Adapter based on Java Messaging Service (JMS) communication. As example a device sends an alarm because of wrong internal parameter settings. M2A receives the alarm, and sends a message addressed to the group: "operators".
2. The Location Based Services (LBS) component locates the alarming device and laboratory personal from a 3D model.
3. The LBS component sends a list of the nearest personal next to the alarm to the Messaging Bus.
4. M2A resolves inside the naming component the physical addresses of the group "operator". A profile attached to this group specifies what operators are in the laboratory available and e.g. that only 1 operator should be contacted.
5. After consolidation with the information out of the LBS, the nearest operator gets the alarming message. As this operator has its own profile e.g. stating to be contactable from 08:00 - 18:00 per alarming application and 18:00 - 08:00 per mail and mobile phone, an alarm is send to the PDA.
6. If there is no response, from the PDA, the alarm is stored and sent to the operators other devices. Also the network is scanned repeatedly to find the PDA and to retransmit the message.
