    Temporal Isolation in Real-Time Systems

    Temporal isolation in real-time systems allows the execution of software processes isolated from one another in the temporal domain. Intuitively, the execution of a process is temporally isolated if the real-time behavior of the process is independent of the execution of the other concurrently scheduled processes in the system. The...

    Two-Factor Biometric Recognition with Integrated Tamper-Protection Watermarking

    Two-factor authentication with biometrics and smart-cards enabled by semi-fragile watermarking is proposed. Several advantages of the scheme as compared to earlier approaches are discussed and experiments for an iris-based recognition system demonstrate that semi-fragile integrity verification can be provided by the system. This is achieved without impact on recognition performance,...

    A Modified Location Aided Routing Protocol for UWB MANET

    The Mobile Ad hoc NETwork (MANET) is a conventional ad hoc network; nodes within the network are mobile, where each node is equipped with a transmitter and receiver, antenna, and a local battery. Each node may operate as a router to relay message from sender to receiver. Nodes within MANET...

    Programmable Temporal Isolation through Variable-Bandwidth Servers

    The authors introduce Variable-Bandwidth Servers (VBS) for scheduling and executing processes under programmable temporal isolation. A VBS is an extension of a constant-bandwidth server where throughput and latency of process execution can not only be controlled to remain constant across different competing workloads but also to vary in time as...

    Tempo: Disk Drive Power Consumption Characterization and Modeling

    Accurately modeling a hard disk drive performance and power requirements is of significant interest to designers of consumer electronic systems that include a disk drive as a storage device. In this paper, a method to create a detailed power and performance model of a disk is presented. The proposed method...

    More Than A Game: Sports-Themed Video Games And Player Narratives

    This paper considers the social importance of sports-themed video games, and more specifically, discusses their use and role in the construction of gaming and wider social narratives. Here, building on the own and wider sociological and video games studies, the authors advocate adopting an audience research perspective that allows for...

    Combo Drive: Optimizing Cost and Performance in a Heterogeneous Storage Device

    The authors propose a new type of heterogeneous storage device called combo drive, which comprises of a smaller-capacity low-latency Solid-State disk Drive (SSD) concatenated with a larger-capacity high-throughput Hard Disk Drive (HDD). The overall cost of a combo drive, similar to a hybrid drive, is still dominated by the more...

    Real-Time Scheduling for Workload-oriented Programming

    Workload-oriented programming is a design methodology for specifying throughput and latency of real-time software processes on the level of individual process actions. The key programming abstraction is that the workload involved in executing a process action such as a system or procedure call fully determines the action's response time, independently...

    A Compacting Real-Time Memory Management System

    The authors propose a real real-time memory management system called compact-fit that offers both time and space predictability. Compact-fit is a compacting memory management system for allocating, de-allocating, and accessing memory in real time. The system provides predictable memory fragmentation and response times that are constant or linear in the...
