—Batteries of field nodes in a wireless sensor network pose an upper limit on the network lifetime. Energy harvesting and harvesting aware medium access control protocols have the potential to provide uninterrupted network operation, as they aim to replenish the lost energy so that energy neutral operation of the energy harvesting nodes can be achieved. To(More)
—Harvesting energy from radio frequency (RF) waves brings us closer to achieving the goal for perpetual operation of a wireless sensor network (WSN) by replenishing the batteries of the sensor nodes. However, due to restrictions on the maximum transmitted power, path loss, and receiver sensitivity, only a small amount of energy can be harvested. While a(More)
Graph based algorithms are widely used for unstructured mesh partitioning. They give rise to non-contiguous partitions optimized for minimum communication between partitions. Space-filling curves (SFC) on the other hand give better balanced partitions having higher communication cost than graphs. In this work, we show that SFC based algorithms are(More)
Chip Multiprocessors (CMP) are there to stay in everyday computing -- starting from large scale server to mobile handheld devices. The challenge in designing a system with CMP is to utilize the processor resources optimally so that the power and performance goals are met. In this paper we present <i>Threadguide</i>, a framework for application adaptation(More)
