Robotic hands are still a long way from matching the grasping and manipulation capability of their human counterparts. One way to push the research further along is to use computer modeling and simulation to learn more about human and robotic grasping. We have created a publicly available simulator to serve this purpose. It can accommodate a wide variety of(More)
There is an ever-growing pressure to accelerate computer vision applications on embedded processors for wide-ranging equipment including mobile phones, network cameras, and automotive safety systems. Towards this goal, we propose a software library approach that eases common computational bottlenecks by optimizing over 60 lowand mid-level vision kernels.(More)
Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) are currently deployed in a wide range of civil applications as a sensor is becoming smaller and production costs are smaller. The main drawback is the energy constraint as it seems impractical to change or recharge the battery. Several applications require a sufficient number of reporting data to describe an event. Both(More)
Steganography can be defined as the science of hiding data behind images in such a way that no one except the sender and receiver has any idea about the transfer of hidden message taking place. In this paper, light is thrown on the algorithm using LSB of the image pixels to store data and transfer in a hidden manner, such that it won’t attract attention and(More)
We are currently developing a portable integrated tool environment for distributed-memory parallel processors (DMPPs) as part of the Joint CSCS-ETHINEC Collaboration in Parallel Processing. As we design and implement a sequence of toolprototypes these are used and evaluated by a team of application developers. This close interaction allows rapidfeedback, as(More)
