Automotive apps can improve efficiency, safety, comfort, and longevity of vehicular use. These apps achieve their goals by continuously monitoring sensors in a vehicle, and combining them with information from cloud databases in order to detect events that are used to trigger actions (e.g., alerting a driver, turning on fog lights, screening calls).(More)
—Grass is an essential element of natural scenes, which plays an important role in various fields of applications, such as virtual reality, computer games and special effects of movie. Unfortunately, it is still difficult to render and animate grass with interactive frame rates due to the huge number and wide covering range of grass blades. Realistic(More)
The enormous success of advanced wireless devices is pushing the demand for higher wireless data rates. The industry is satisfying this increasing demand by densely deploying large numbers of access points (APs). Unfortunately, unicast rates, especially in crowded scenarios, remain very low due to severe interference and time-sharing. However, one may take(More)
In the recent years, the computing power of mobile devices has increased tremendously, a trend that is expected to continue in the future. With high-quality onboard cameras, these devices are capable of collecting large volumes of visual information. Motivated by the observation that processing this video on the mobile device can enable many new(More)
Precise positioning of an automobile to within lane-level precision can enable better navigation and context-awareness. However, GPS by itself cannot provide such precision in obstructed urban environments. In this paper, we present a system called CARLOC for lane-level positioning of automobiles. CARLOC uses three key ideas in concert to improve(More)
