Modern mobile terminal devices are multi-functional terminal devices with options such as: Internet access, using of applications, e-mail communication, messaging, data storage and using of multimedia files. The value of such data is often invaluable and vulnerability is often very high. Given the high use of smartphones and a variety of operating systems that they use (iOS, Android, Windows Phone …), the logical is the fact that these devices are frequent targets of malicious attacks. Research of this paper will focus on defining forms of security threats and possible attacks on smartphones and a brief description of possibilities for protecting smartphones. There will be displayed features of operating systems and specified the security aspects and specifics which carry some of the modern operating systems of mobile terminal devices.
Application Development for Geo-Referenced Audio Video Recording of the Traffic System Using Mobile Phones
The paper analyzes the development feasibility and the possibilities of using the application for mobile terminal devices with the aim of generating geo-referenced audio-video recordings of the traffic network. The application has been developed at the Faculty of Transport and Traffic Sciences in Zagreb, in J2ME environment. The application is meant to create a geo-referenced audio-video recording of the traffic network, and can therefore be efficiently applied by all who are involved in activities regarding the general condition of roads, road signage, road environment, in short, by anyone who may benefit from the geo-referenced audio-video recording of the traffic network in order to operate more efficiently.
The Impact of Introducing e-Learning System in the Teaching Process at the Faculty of Traffic and Transport Sciences
The development of technology has brought to additional improvement in the quality of education by using the e-learning technology. Following the advanced trends of improving the teaching processes the Faculty of Traffic and Transport Sciences started several years ago the development of own e-Learning system modules. The paper presents the phases of the system realization. Special attention has been paid to the analysis of time-independent learning by the students and the work of the teaching staff members using the system. The obtained results indicate an increase in the number of users and their satisfaction in using the system thus saving time and allowing easier and more efficient access to information.
