Networked Infomechanical Systems (NIMS) introduces a new actuation capability for embedded networked sensing. By exploiting a constrained actuation method based on rapidly deployable infrastructure, NIMS suspends a network of wireless mobile and fixed sensor nodes in three-dimensional space. This permits run-time adaptation with variable sensing location,(More)
Packet classification is crucial for the Internet to provide more value-added services and guaranteed quality of service. Besides hardware-based solutions, many software-based classification algorithms have been proposed. However, classifying at 10Gbps speed or higher is a challenging problem and it is still one of the performance bottlenecks in core(More)
Monitoring of environmental phenomena with embedded networked sensing confronts the challenges of both unpredictable variability in the spatial distribution of phenomena, coupled with demands for a high spatial sampling rate in three dimensions. For example, low distortion mapping of critical solar radiation properties in forest environments may require(More)
The new write constraints of multi-level cell (MLC) NAND flash memory make most of the existing flash translation layer (FTL) schemes inefficient or inapplicable. In this paper, we solve several fundamental problems in the design of MLC flash translation layer. The objective is to reduce the garbage collection overhead so as to reduce the average system(More)
Smartphones are getting increasingly high-performance with advances in mobile processors and larger main memories to support feature-rich applications. However, the storage subsystem has always been a prohibitive factor that slows down the pace of reaching even higher performance while maintaining good user experience. Despite today's smartphones are(More)
This paper solves the open problem of extracting the maximal number of iterations from a loop that can be executed in parallel on chip multiprocessors. Our algorithm solves it optimally by migrating the weights of parallelism-inhibiting dependences on dependence cycles in two phases. First, we model dependence migration with retiming and formulate this(More)
Vehicular Ad hoc NETworks (VANETs), which provide vehicles with an easy access to exchange the up-to-date traffic status and various kinds of data, have become a promising application of mobile ad-hoc networks. In the life-critical VANETs, security issues are considered as a focal topic. One challenging problem among these issues is the insider misbehavior(More)
This paper presents an incremental diagnosis method (IDM) to detect a medical condition with the minimum wearable sensor usage by dynamically adjusting the sensor set based on the patient's state in his/her natural environment. The IDM, comprised of a naive Bayes classifier generated by supervised training with Gaussian clustering, is developed to classify(More)
