This paper presents the structure and functionality of zFunction, which is an adaptive distributed computing platform that supports a user-friendly programming model for developing parallel processing applications. It allows developers to design software as if they are programming for a single computer and then it automatically takes care of data(More)
Remotely Operated underwater Vehicles (ROVs) play an important role in a number of operations conducted in shallow and deep water (e.g.: exploration, survey, intervention, etc.), in several application fields like marine science, offshore construction, and underwater archeology. In this work we describe the preliminary steps in the development of the set-up(More)
Remotely Operated underwater Vehicles (ROVs) play an important role in a number of operations conducted in shallow and deep water (e.g.: exploration, survey, intervention, etc.), in several application fields like marine science, offshore construction, and underwater archeology. ROVs are usually equipped with different imaging devices, both optical and(More)
Parallel application programming is becoming increasingly important to researchers and developers who want to leverage hardware advances and compute complex calculations quickly and efficiently in competitive domains, such as financial services. Prior research has focused on high-performance computing and grid computing middleware to support the development(More)
