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)
Xeroderma pigmentosum complementation group C and G (XPC, XPG) play important roles in DNA damage repairing machinery. Genetic variations in the XPC and XPG may be associated with increased risk for colorectal carcinoma (CRC). In this study, we evaluated the relation between the XPC Lys939Gln, XPG Asp1104His polymorphisms, and CRC susceptibility in a(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)
Phase change memory (PCM) has been proposed to replace NOR flash and DRAM in embedded systems because of its attractive features. However, the endurance of PCM greatly limits its adoption in embedded systems. As most embedded systems are application-oriented, we can tackle the endurance problem of PCM by exploring application-specific features such as fixed(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)
