    To improve ray casting frame rates on shared memory architectures, the authors explore memory hierarchy effects and their interaction with parallel partitioning and load balancing. With their optimizations, a 16-processor Power Challenge machine renders a 1-Gbyte data set at a frame per second-faster than previously reported for a data set this large View full abstract»

  • Massively parallel computing techniques might improve highway maintenance

    Publication Year: 1998, Page(s):58 - 67
    Cited by:  Papers (1)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (304 KB)

    Road maintenance procedures that allocate resources according to the condition of particular highway sections are more cost effective than those involving fixed-interval, budget-controlled maintenance. This more effective needs led approach requires measuring the highway's condition at regular, typically annual intervals. For this purpose, civil engineers build a highway management system into a d... View full abstract»

    The authors discuss the development of their Parallel Reconfigurable Interconnectable Object (P-RIO) environment, which offers a graphical programming tool, modular construction, high portability, a separate configuration language, and runtime support mechanisms for parallel programs. P-RIO provides a middleware-based environment for parallel and distributed programming. Its object-based, software... View full abstract»

    The author considers how the recent release of OpenMP could finally shove parallel software applications out of the domain of high-performance scientific research and analysis, and onto the desktop. By supporting cross-platform, directive-based programming, the OpenMP application programming interface will simplify the development of parallel applications on shared-memory machines. Among other thi... View full abstract»

    Throughout the world, researchers are improving robots to enable them to do more complex tasks with less human intervention. One aspect of this research is the complex path planning problem. The authors' approach combines potential fields, which guide a robot through Cartesian space, and a parallel genetic algorithm, which calculates suitable joint variables for the robot's trajectory View full abstract»

    When e-Christmas went online in early November, a new Web site sprang up just in time for the 1997 Christmas shopping season. Offering a variety of goods from more than 100 stores in nine European countries, the site makes shopping easy by supporting a variety of European languages and currencies. For Christmas 1997, anyone could shop electronically and have gifts delivered anywhere around the glo... View full abstract»
