    The implementation of conversational speech interfaces based on the use of an intelligent frame-based dialogue controller is described. This approach, in conjunction with the automatic generation of syntactic constraints and a simple semantic template grammar parser, is shown to allow practical user-friendly voice-based information inquiry systems to be built using current connected word speech re...

    The paper describes a wiring system which incorporates 4-bit microcontrollers to reduce costs. These devices may be custom produced with the specialised control program held on chip. Using these, a centralised control system with up to eight remote switching and monitoring units may be configured with a single data communications channel and power supply common to each. Standard automotive cable i... View full abstract»

  • Flexible fault tolerance for distributed computer systems

    Publication Year: 1986, Page(s):319 - 332
    Cited by:  Papers (3)

    Many applications have a need for different degrees of fault tolerance in the same system. The paper presents the software architecture of a fault-tolerant distributed system which supports both cold and hot standby redundancy of selected software modules. Cold standby modules are created and activated by the system in order to replace failed modules, but no state information is preserved. Hot sta... View full abstract»

  • Bus and instruction fault diagnosis

    Publication Year: 1986, Page(s):333 - 340

    A method for the identification of stuck-at bits on a data bus is described. Faulty data words are compared to isolate the stuck-at bits. A similar method can be used to identify an instruction which does not execute correctly in a processor instruction set. Here, faulty programmes, or faulty programme segments, are compared to isolate the faulty instruction. For both bus and instruction fault cas... View full abstract»

  • New Hermite cubic interpolator for two-dimensional curve generation

    Publication Year: 1986, Page(s):341 - 347

    The problem of generating a smooth two-dimensional curve through a set of sample points is examined. Such curve generation techniques can be used in curve coding for transmission (e.g. `Telewriting┬┐┬┐) and in curve design. The paper examines some parametric interpolators which will generate such curves, with emphasis on techniques based on the Hermite cubic (or cubic subspline) interpolator. A new ...
