A detailed step-by-step approach is presented to optimize, standardize, and automate the process of unmanned vehicle controller design, evaluation, validation and verification, followed by actual hardware controller implementation on the vehicle. The proposed approach follows the standard practice to utilize MATLAB/SIMULINK and related toolboxes as the(More)
SUMMARY Current trends in microprocessor design are fundamentally changing the way that performance is extracted from computer systems. The previous programming model for sequential uniprocessor execution is being replaced quickly with a need to write software for tightly-coupled shared memory multiprocessor systems. Both academicians and business leaders(More)
A number of characteristics of the visual system and of the visual stimulus are invoked to explain involuntary control of attention, including goals, novelty, and perceptual salience. The present experiment tested perceptual salience on a surprise trial, that is, on its unannounced first presentation following trials lacking any salient items, thus(More)
INTRODUCTION Patients submitted to hematopoietic stem cell transplantation have an increased risk of Clostridium difficile infection and multiple risk factors have been identified. Published reports have indicated an incidence from 9% to 30% of transplant patients however to date there is no information about infection in these patients in Chile. METHODS(More)
INTRODUCTION Hodgkin's lymphoma is a highly curable disease. Autologous and reduced intensity allogeneic hematopoietic cell transplantations are alternatives to treat relapsed patients. Here, we report on the results of one service using these procedures. METHODS All patients who underwent transplantations in our institution between 1996 and 2014 were(More)
In this paper, we will explore the design considerations of a low cost, high performance microprocessor cluster, including both hardware and software factors. The goal of the designed system is to maximize the ratio of performance to price, creating a powerful computer at very low price point. This paper will explore the target capabilities of the platform,(More)
