  Data-driven synchronization for Internet-of-Things systems
Bennett T., Gans N., Jafari R.  ACM Transactions on Embedded Computing Systems 16(3): 1-24, 2017. Type: Article

Time synchronization has been an active issue for decades. Stricter timing, energy considerations, external influences, and so on have spurred new studies. Two variants can be found: synchronize the clocks of distributed devices or provide a formu...

  An indoor test methodology for solar-powered wireless sensor networks
Tan W., Sullivan P., Watson H., Slota-Newson J., Jarvis S.  ACM Transactions on Embedded Computing Systems 16(3): 1-25, 2017. Type: Article

Reliable hardware and algorithms for solar-powered wireless sensor networks (WSNs) require precise and reproducible indoor tests. But how should repeatable indoor tests of solar-powered WSNs be performed without the use of costly solar simulators ...

  Parallel programming patterns for multi-processor SoC: application to video processing
Paulin P., Özcan A., Gagné V., Lavigueur B., Benny O.  ACM Transactions on Embedded Computing Systems 12(1s): 1-25, 2013. Type: Article

Parallel computing emerged during the 1980s and, although multiprocessor and multicomputer architectures offered the potential of dramatic increases in processing power, the potential was rarely realized due to lack of programming tool support. Fa...

  A hybrid genetic algorithm for the bottleneck traveling salesman problem
Ahmed Z.  ACM Transactions on Embedded Computing Systems 12(1): 1-10, 2013. Type: Article

The bottleneck traveling salesman problem (BTSP) refers to the challenge of finding a Hamiltonian circuit that minimizes the largest cost of any of the arcs in the circuit. This paper describes a hybrid genetic algorithm (HGA) that efficiently pro...

  Optimization of task allocation and priority assignment in hard real-time distributed systems
Zhu Q., Zeng H., Zheng W., Di Natale M., Sangiovanni-Vincentelli A.  ACM Transactions on Embedded Computing Systems 11(4): 1-30, 2012. Type: Article

Zhu et al. study the problem of assigning tasks and signals in an automotive environment, specifically, a vehicle consisting of sensors, actuators, and processors (engine control units, or ECUs) connected by buses. The problem is to map a set of t...

  Modeling and analysis of TinyOS sensor node firmware: a CSP approach
McInnes A.  ACM Transactions on Embedded Computing Systems 12(1): 1-23, 2013. Type: Article

This paper, as the name suggests, formalizes certain elements of TinyOS, an operating system that has become popular in the domain of sensor networks. The well-known formalism of communicating sequential processes (CSP) is used for modeling TinyOS...

  Boosting software fault injection for dependability analysis of real-time embedded applications
Cabodi G., Murciano M., Violante M.  ACM Transactions on Embedded Computing Systems 10(2): 1-32, 2010. Type: Article

Embedded systems today are large and complex, composed of a variety of components from different sources. These may be commercial off-the-shelf components, which are often less fault tolerant than their traditional counterparts. It is essential to...
