Modeling process scheduling and system software in multiprocessors
This thesis presents new techniques for simulating multiprogramming and interrupt servicing in an execution driven simulation environment. We have incorporated these techniques into the Rice Parallel Processing Testbed ...
Efficient simulation of simple instruction set array processors
Simple instruction set array processors are groups of regularly connected processors with small instruction sets and local memories. The processors are augmented by built-in communication instructions. Because of the ...
A theory of photometric stereo for a general class of reflectance maps
Photometric stereo is an image processing technique for 2$1\over 2$ dimensional surface reconstruction from local shading. The classical theory of photometric stereo has been developed only for surfaces that reflect in a ...
Performance prediction of packet switched multistage interconnection networks in an execution-driven environment
This thesis studies the performance of multistage interconnection networks (MINs) using execution-driven simulation. The networks were studied with varying network configurations, numbers of inputs and outputs of the network ...
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. ...
