The safety of real-time embedded systems relies on both functional and timing correctness. On the timing side, real-time constraints are set on task executions, and missing them may lead to system failure. On the functional side, soft errors have become a major concern. Various soft error tolerance strategies are proposed for soft error detection and(More)
Cyber-security has emerged as a pressing issue for transportation systems. Studies have shown that attackers can attack modern vehicles from a variety of interfaces and gain access to the most safety-critical components. Such threats become even broader and more challenging with the emergence of vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) and vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I)(More)
Demand response (DR) is an effective mechanism in improving power system efficiency and reducing energy cost for customers. However, DR processes might be vulnerable to cyber attacks from the usage of advanced metering infrastructure and wide-area network to exchange information. In this paper, we study potential attacks for a proactive demand participation(More)
In this article, we propose a new lifetime task optimization technique for real-time embedded processors considering the electromigration-induced reliability. The new approach is based on a recently proposed physics-based electromigration (EM) model for more accurate EM assessment of a power grid network at the chip level. We apply the dynamic voltage and(More)
Although entities are named under some specific rules, the amount of various names makes it impossible for computers to detect these entities in a context because of the complex variety of the rules. If we can create a rule that can be easily identified by computers to detect these names automatically, it will substantially reduce our cost, save our time as(More)
Next-generation autonomous and semi-autonomous vehicles will not only precept the environment with their own sensors, but also communicate with other vehicles and surrounding infrastructures for vehicle safety and transportation efficiency. The design, analysis and validation of various vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) and vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I)(More)
Alzheimer disease (AD), a central nervous system degenerative disease, is characterized by abnormal deposition of amyloid-β peptide (Aβ), neurofibrillary tangles formed by hyperphosphorylated tau and synaptic loss. It is widely accepted that Aβ is the chief culprit of AD. Aβ peptide is the cleavage product of amyloid-β precursor protein (APP). Recently,(More)
We have studied the stress wave propagation in one-dimensional (1-D) nanoscopic buckyball (C60) system by molecular dynamics (MD) simulation and quantitative modeling. Simulation results have shown that solitary waves are generated and propagating in the buckyball system through impacting one buckyball at one end of the buckyball chain. We have found the(More)
