Impact of dependable software development guidelines on timing analysis
The knowledge of the worst-case execution time (WCET) of real-time tasks is mandatory to ensure correct timing behavior of real-time systems. However, in practice an exact WCET analysis is often intractable due to limitations ...
Automatic timing model generation by CFG partitioning and model checking
(IEEE COMPUTER SOC, 2005)
We present a new measurement-based worst-case execution time (WCET) analysis method. Exhaustive end-to-end measurements are computationally intractable in most cases. Therefore, we propose to measure execution times of ...
Open-source software in an occupational health application: the case of Heales Medical Ltd
In this paper, we provide a case study of a small--company, Heales Medical Ltd., that has chosen to use opensource software to develop an online integrated patient management system. We use this case study to examine some ...
The peg-in-hole : A VR-based haptic assessment for quantifying ED upper limb performance and skills
Assistive technologies (AT) have the potential to augment individual's life and to promote functional independence. However, in many cases, optimum use of an assistive technology device is restricted due to the difficulties ...
Principles of timing anomalies in superscalar processors
The counter-intuitive timing behavior of certain features in superscalar processors that cause severe problems for existing worst-case execution time analysis (WCET) methods is called timing anomalies. In this paper, we ...
Robots as Isolators or Mediators for Children with Autism A Cautionary Tale
The discussion presented in this paper is part of our investigation in the Aurora project into the potential use of robots as therapeutic or educational ‘toys’ specifically for use by children with autism. The paper raises ...
