The need to process multimedia data places largecomputational demands on portable/embedded devices.These multimedia functions share commoncharacteristics: they are computationally intensive anddata-streaming, performing the same operation(s) onmany data elements.The Reconfigurable StreamingVector Processor (RSVPTM) is a vector coprocessorarchitecture that(More)
A large number of sensors (i.e., video, radar, laser, ultrasound, etc.) that continuously monitor the environment are finding their way in the average automobile. The algorithms processing the data captured by these sensors are streaming in nature and require a high rate of computation. Due to the characteristics of the automotive environment, this(More)
Current trends in the sensor networking research community indicate a shift in focus from the traditional research targeting enterprise, structural/industrial monitoring applications to more consumer focused applications. In this paper we discuss an ongoing project in our lab in the " people-centric " mobile device-based sensor networking area. We present(More)
An important mechanism to conserve energy and extend the battery life of low-power wireless networks is to increase the sleep-cycle of the nodes. However, increasing sleep-cycles can have unintended consequences on the application performance. Therefore, it is important to understand the impact of various sleep-cycle parameters on the performance of any(More)
A myriad of sensors (i.e., video, radar, laser, ultrasound, etc.) continuously monitoring the environment are incorporated in future automobiles. The algorithms processing the data captured by these sensors are streaming in nature and require high levels of processing power. Due to the characteristics of the automotive market, this processing power has to(More)
Web TV is making a comeback, as users increasingly co-consume TV related web content on their companion devices (tablets and smartphones) in sync with TV watching. In this `dual screen' experience, users download and invoke TV apps on their companion devices to personalize their Superbowl or American Idol TV experience with a web counterpart. Unfortunately,(More)
