    The emergence of hardware multithread (HW-MT) architectures increased the performance of MT applications. However, traditional HW-MT architectures are not suitable to real-time operating systems as their performance-oriented scheduling algorithm may conflict with RTOS software scheduling. This letter presents RT-SHADOWS, a portable architecture which provides a unified hardware-software scheduling... View full abstract»

    Robust and reliable detection of falls is crucial especially for elderly activity monitoring systems. In this letter, we present a fall detection system using wearable devices, e.g., smartphones, and tablets, equipped with cameras and accelerometers. Since the portable device is worn by the subject, monitoring is not limited to confined areas, and extends to wherever the subject may travel, as opp... View full abstract»

    In this letter, an ultra-sensitive compact portable microwave life-detection device is introduced and implemented with promising results. By utilizing Doppler effect-based systems, vital signs such as heartbeats and breathing can be detected and can be used for finding survivors under earthquake rubble, injured soldiers on battlefields and as lie detection device. This device is tested in both sim... View full abstract»

    The use of embedded software is advancing in modern medical devices, so does its capabilities and complexity. This paradigm shift brings many challenges such as an increased rate of medical device failures due to software faults. In this letter, we present a rigorous “correct by construction” approach for the trustworthy development of hemodialysis machines, a subclass of active medi... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (575 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    In this letter, we propose an energy efficient ZigBee-based outdoor light monitoring and control system that can monitor and handle outdoor lights more efficiently as compared to the conventional systems. The proposed system uses the ZigBee-based wireless devices which allow more efficient lamps management. The designed system uses sensors to control and guarantee the optimal system parameters. To...

    This letter presents a new algorithm to construct an XOR-Free architecture of a power efficient Convolutional Encoder. Optimization of XOR operators is the main concern while implementing polynomials over GF(2), which consumes a significant amount of dynamic power. The proposed approach completely removes the XOR-processing operation of a chosen nonsystematic, feed-forward generator polynomial and... View full abstract»

  • Extending Amdahl’s Law for Heterogeneous Multicore Processor with Consideration of the Overhead of Data Preparation

    Publication Year: 2016, Page(s):26 - 29
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (540 KB)

    We extend Amdahl's law by considering the overhead of data preparation (ODP) for multicore systems, and apply it to three “traditional” multicore system scenarios (homogeneous symmetric multicore, asymmetric multicore, and dynamic multicore) and two new scenarios (heterogeneous CPU-GPU multicore and dynamic CPU-GPU multicore). It demonstrates that potential innovations in heterogeneo... View full abstract»
