Progress Report 2

This the second report of my Master Thesis project in Computer Sciences at Graz University of Technology (TUGraz) and the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven (KULeuven). It is an overview on the second four weeks of research. It gives a background overview to situate this report and it discusses the problem statement. An in depth view on the software architecture is given. Some noteworthy implementation details are revealed. Finally an updated project plan is motivated.

Feel free to download and look into it, I’ll be answering all your questions. But respect the copyright notice.
