Genetic Algorithms and Artificial Neural Networks to Combinational Circuit Generation on Reconfigurable Hardware
Found in: Reconfigurable Computing and FPGAs, International Conference on
By Bruno A. Silva, Mauricio A. Dias, Jorge L. Silva, Fernando S. Osorio
Issue Date:December 2010
pp. 179-184
Operating in critical environments is an extremely desired feature for fault-tolerant embedded systems. In addition, due to design test and validation complexity of these systems, faster and easier development methods are needed. Evolvable Hardware (EHW) i...
Dependability models for designing disaster tolerant cloud computing systems
Found in: 2013 43rd Annual IEEE/IFIP International Conference on Dependable Systems and Networks (DSN)
By Bruno Silva,Paulo Maciel,Eduardo Tavares,Armin Zimmermann
Issue Date:June 2013
pp. 1-6
Hundreds of natural disasters occur in many parts of the world every year, causing billions of dollars in damages. This fact contrasts with the high availability requirement of cloud computing systems, and, to protect such systems from unforeseen catastrop...
On Monocular Visual Odometry for Indoor Ground Vehicles
Found in: 2012 Brazilian Robotics Symposium and Latin American Robotics Symposium (SBR-LARS)
By Bruno Silva,Aquiles Burlamaqui,Luiz Goncalves
Issue Date:October 2012
pp. 220-225
In this work, a Visual Odometry system estimating camera position and orientation based solely on image meausurements is proposed. The system is built on the fundamentals of Structure from Motion theory, requiring only a single calibrated camera to estimat...
New directions for system support in Pervasive Computing
Found in: Pervasive Computing and Communications Workshops, IEEE International Conference on
By Helena Rodrigues,Rui Jose,Arlindo Santos,Bruno Silva
Issue Date:March 2012
pp. 173-178
In this paper, we discuss alternative paths towards system support for Pervasive Computing that are based on a balanced combination between global services and situated devices that we hypothesise will be the key to widespread deployment of Pervasive Compu...
An Environment for Measuring and Scheduling Time-Critical Embedded Systems with Energy Constraints
Found in: Software Engineering and Formal Methods, IEEE International Conference on
By Eduardo Tavares, Bruno Silva, Paulo Maciel
Issue Date:November 2008
pp. 291-300
Over the last decade, energy consumption has receivedconsiderable attention from the scientiļ¬c community, whichhas developed several techniques for increasing energy savings in embedded systems. Nevertheless, considering time-critical systems, the adoption...
Software Synthesis for Hard Real-Time Embedded Systems with Energy Constraints
