Future high-performance computing systems for both general-purpose and embedded applications must be “able”: scalable, portable, dependable, programmable, and affordable. The Scalable Cluster Architecture Latency-hiding Environment (SCALE) project underway in the HCS Research Laboratory hopes to contribute to this end by bridging the gap between the(More)

This paper presents an engineering design of a real-time fault monitoring method for power-on-wheel electric vehicles, which have four independent wheel units. Each independent unit has an in-wheel motor with its own steering control system. A central control unit is used to coordinate the four wheels and translate the driver's idea onto the wheels, as such(More)
With knowledge of persistent data communication traffic patterns offered to an avionics data network, modifications to the routing through the network can be made to improve total throughput and bound the latency of packets. The Multiservice Switch (MSS) is such a route-optimizing switch for streaming sensor data. The MSS has two switching fabrics: packet(More)
Solar photovoltaic electricity has become a well-accepted and popular form of renewable energy. It is also a policy of Otago Polytechnic to look at ways of becoming more sustainable and cost effective in its energy usage. As a result, an investigation is conducted into the potential use of PV electricity. This paper presents the results of a study into the(More)
This paper provides experimental data and analysis to quantify both the peak and sustained performance characteristics of four of the most promising new networking technologies for interconnecting machines in a high-performance cluster of workstations. These technologies include Scalable Coherent Interface (SCI), Myrinet, Fibre Channel System (FCS), and(More)
