  • Exploring Embedded Symmetric Multiprocessing with Various On-Chip Architectures

    Publication Year: 2015, Page(s):1 - 8
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1548 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Multicore embedded systems have evolved to appear in different domains. In this paper, we explore and compare various on-chip architectures with respect to a number design metrics. Unlike earlier published works that majorly concern with optimizations in processor, memory and cache hierarchies, in this paper, we aim to ascertain the best on-chip architectures for given processor cores, Level 1-2-3...

    Cited by:  Papers (1)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (360 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Heterogeneous computing is a promising approach to tackle the thermal, power and energy constraints posed by modern desktop and embedded computing systems. However, by also allowing the migration of application threads to the most appropriate cores, significant performance gains and energy efficiency levels can also be attained. Nevertheless, the considerably large overheads usually imposed by sof... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (6753 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Modern computing systems are dealing with a diverse set of complex and dynamic workloads in the presence of varying job arrival rates. This diversity is raising the need for the development of sophisticated run-time mechanisms that efficiently manage system's resources. In addition, moving towards kilo-core processor architectures, centralized resource management approaches will most probably form... View full abstract»

  • Semi-Partitioned Scheduling of Fork-Join Tasks Using Work-Stealing

    Publication Year: 2015, Page(s):25 - 34
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (647 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    This paper explores the behavior of parallel fork-join tasks on multicore platforms by resorting to a semi-partitioned scheduling model. This model offers a promising framework to embedded systems which are subject to stringent timing constraints as it provides these systems with very interesting properties. The proposed approach consists of two stages -- an offline stage and an online stage. Duri... View full abstract»

  • Evaluation of a Systematic Approach in Variant Management for Safety-Critical Systems Development

    Publication Year: 2015, Page(s):35 - 43
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1119 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    The development of highly integrated, safety-relevant automotive functions is faced with the challenge of increasing complexity resulting from product customization and variants in implementation through software-hardware solutions. In order to reduce time to market in this scenario, systematic reuse of engineering artifacts is important. This paper introduces a systematic model-based engineering ... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (755 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Mission critical embedded software for autonomous operation requires high development cost due to its long development cycle. One of the potential solutions for reducing the cost is to reuse the software developed at previous missions. Virtual machine platform such as JVM is a good example to provide code portability across various missions. Flight software in aerospace field is adopting this conc... View full abstract»

  • Pattern-Based Approach for Designing Fail-Operational Safety-Critical Embedded Systems

    Publication Year: 2015, Page(s):52 - 59
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (494 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    To deal with fail-operational (FO) requirements in today's safety-critical networked embedded systems (SCNES), engineers have to resort to concepts such as redundancy, monitoring, and special shutdown procedures. Hardware-based redundancy approaches are not applicable to many embedded systems domains (e.g., automotive systems), because of prohibitive costs. In this scenario, adaptability concepts ...

  • Application-Driven Evaluation of AUTOSAR Basic Software on Modern ECUs

    Publication Year: 2015, Page(s):60 - 67
    Cited by:  Papers (1)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (516 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    When integrating AUTOSAR software on an automotive ECU, errors may occur due to the large number of modules involved and/or improper timing. These errors manifest at the application level complicating the test and verification process. Since AUTOSAR has a layered architecture, it is often cumbersome to identify sources of errors. In this paper, to help integrating software on an ECU, we propose a ... View full abstract»

  • Architecture-Driven Development Approach for WSAN Applications

    Publication Year: 2015, Page(s):68 - 75
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (562 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Wireless Sensor and Actuator Networks (WSANs) are highly heterogeneous regarding hardware, software, and application requirements. Developing WSAN applications is a hard task, as it requires domain and network knowledge and there is a lack of methodologies, architectures, and patterns to help software developers with such task. Moreover, non-functional requirements play an essential role to ensure... View full abstract»

    Wireless body area networks (WBANs) have the huge potential to enhance people's lives. They are already present in many application domains, for instance sport and fitness, but they are wide spreading in particular in health and rehabilitation. However, there are still challenging issues that limit their wide diffusion in real life: primarily, the limited lifetime due to the batteries that usually... View full abstract»

    Very small autonomous robots could cooperate to solve an almost infinite number of problems. Prototypes of such robots do already exist at the micro scale and even smaller ones are expected. Yet allowing them to wirelessly communicate considerably enhance their possible usages. In this paper, we revisit Vouivre, a nano-wireless simulation library we previously developed. Micro or nano-robots will ... View full abstract»

    As the web technology advances, web applications, executable on any devices where a web browser is installed, have become pervasive. However, running heavy web applications in the mobile devices is challenging, because of their resource constraints and poor network environments. One of the trials to overcome such restrictions is computation offloading. Computation offloading is the technique migra... View full abstract»

  • A Novel Method for the Approximation of Multiplierless Constant Matrix Vector Multiplication

    Publication Year: 2015, Page(s):98 - 105
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (422 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Since human beings have limited perceptual abilities, in many digital signal processing (DSP) applications, e.g., image and video processing, the outputs do not need to be computed accurately. Instead, they can be approximated so that the area, delay, and/or power dissipation of the design can be reduced. This paper presents an approximation algorithm, called AURA, for the multiplierless design of... View full abstract»
