Efficient runtime support for cluster-based distributed shared memory multiprocessors
Distributed shared memory (DSM) systems provide a shared memory programming paradigm on top of a physically distributed network of computers. The DSM system removes the necessity for programmers to move data explicitly ...
The use of a laser imaging system for automated vehicle guidance and space servicing tasks
This thesis presents a simulation of a laser imaging system for automated vehicle guidance and space servicing tasks. Data generated by this system are used to command a robot navigating in an unconstrained natural terrain. ...
Kinematic analysis and trajectory control of the Rice omni-directional mobile robot (Rice University, Texas)
The forward/inverse kinematics, trajectory planning and control system for a mobile omni-directional robot are analyzed and implemented. For kinematic analysis each wheel of the robot has been modeled as a "higher pair" ...
The use of scanning laser range finders for autonomous robotic navigation
An intelligent robotic system must possess the capabilities to sense the environment, perceive the environment, reason on the environment and then act based upon the conclusions of the reasoning process. Autonomous robotic ...
Validation of the Rice Parallel Processing Testbed using sorting algorithms (Rice University, Texas)
The Rice Parallel Processing Testbed (RPPT) is software package for simulating the execution of parallel computers. The RPPT employs execution driven simulation to perform simulation efficiently. In this thesis, the ...
A microprocessor system designed for use in the laboratory
The goal of the project was to design a low cost microprocessor system for laboratory use. A general purpose microprocessor board was conceived that could be used in a card type system or with the special purpose mother ...
