Storage consumption continues to grow rapidly, especially with the popularity of multimedia files. Storage hardware costs represent a small fraction of overall management costs, which include frequent maintenance and backups. Our key approach to reducing total storage management costs is to reduce actual storage consumption. We achieve this in two ways.(More)
We present a novel stereoscopic mapping system for use in post-nuclear accident operations. First we discuss a radiation shielded sensor array designed t o tolerate extended cumulative dose using 4 shielding. Next, we outline procedures to ensure timely, accurate range estimation using trinocular stereo. Finally, we review the implementation of a system for(More)
We introduce elastic quotas, a disk space management technique that makes disk space an elastic resource like CPU and memory. Elastic quotas allow all users to use unlimited amounts of available disk space while still providing system administrators the ability to control how the disk space is allocated among users. Elastic quotas maintain existing(More)
Integration of three-dimensional textured scene mapping and object recognition presents many opportunities for assisted automation. We present Artisan, a software package that synthesizes these elements to form a user-friendly whole. Artisan uses a variety of 3D sensors, including laser range scanners and stereo systems, to acquire both image and range(More)
We present a novel stereoscopic mapping system for use in nuclear accident settings. First we discuss a radiation shielded sensor array designed to tolerate IC16R of cumulative dose, Next, we give procedures to ensure timely, accurate range estimation using trinoc-ular stereo. Finally, we review the implementation o} a system for the integration of range(More)
