Prefetching and buffer management for parallel I/O systems
In parallel I/O systems the I/O buffer can be used to improve I/O parallelism by improving I/O latency by caching blocks to avoid repeated disk accesses for the same block, and also by buffering prefetched blocks and making ...
Compiler support for software prefetching
Due to the growing disparity between processor speed and main memory speed, techniques that improve cache utilization and hide memory latency are often needed to help applications achieve peak performance. Compiler-directed ...
Performance of synchronous parallel algorithms with regular structures
The ability to model the execution and predict the performance of parallel algorithms is necessary if parallel computer systems are to be designed and utilized effectively. One factor which is inherent to the structure of ...
A vision-based fuzzy logic and neural network approach to the control of hyper-redundant robot manipulators
Hyper-redundant robot manipulators possess a very large degree of kinematic redundancy and are capable of motion similar to that of snakes and elephant trunks. Because of the computational burden required to calculate the ...
Communication efficient parallel algorithms for nonnumerical computations
The broad goal of this research is to develop a set of paradigms for mapping data-dependent symbolic computations on realistic models of parallel architectures. Within this goal, the thesis represents the initial effort ...
Design, analysis, implementation, and control of a mobile robotic testbed for telepresence
A unique mobile telepresence testbed has been designed and implemented. This testbed is a tool for research in telepresence and tele-existence for control of remote robotic systems. An eight-degree-of-freedom, redundant ...
