The inherent parallelism of quantum systems determined not only the investigation of innovative applications that can be developed using these high performance computing systems, but also of ways to improve the performances over the classical case. Exploiting this parallelism recently led to the emergence of innovative ideas in the field of computer(More)
Simulation of quantum computers using classical computers is a hard problem with high memory and computational requirements. Parallelization can alleviate this problem, allowing the simulation of more qubits at the same time or the same number of qubits to be simulated in less time. A promising approach is to exploit the high performance computing(More)
According to the principles of quantum physics, the computing power of a quantum machine is immense compared to that of a classical one. Encouraged by this idea important applications of quantum computation to computer science have been developed (e.g. faster algorithms, secure transmissions). In this paper we investigate the implications of using quantum(More)
This work presents the design aspects of TRAVEE, a neuromotor rehabilitation system. The TRAVEE system relies on innovative concepts for improving the rehabilitation process and increasing the patient recovery rate. One such concept is to present the patient an augmented feedback as part of a learning process based on neuroplasticity. Most of the(More)
The iterative closest point (ICP) problem is very important in multiple fields such as robotics, machine vision, automotive or assistive technologies. The problem is to find the optimal transformation that can align two sets of 3D points. Even if in the recent year new variations of ICP were proposed, the algorithm may get trapped in local minima due to the(More)
Simulation of quantum computers using classical computers is a computationally hard problem, requiring a huge amount of operations and storage. Grid systems are a good choice for simulating quantum algorithms, since they provide access to high-performance computer clusters. In this paper we present the design of a message passing parallel version of the(More)
The research on assisting visually impaired people to navigate in unknown environments commonly employs image processing or computer vision techniques. One key element that needs to be identified in the surrounding environment of a blind user is the ground plane. Its accurate detection is highly important because the user is able to move freely in that(More)
