A template-based approach for real-time speed-limit-sign recognition on an embedded systemusing GPU computing
V Glavtchev, J Ota ,Pattern Recognition, 2010 ,Springer
We present a template-based pipeline that performs realtime speed-limit-sign recognition
using an embedded system with a lowend GPU as the main processing element. Our
pipeline operates in the frequency domain, and uses nonlinear composite filters and a 

Experiences on the implementation of a cooperative embedded system framework
– CISTER Research Centre, Porto, , 2010 ,cister.isep.ipp.pt
Abstract As the complexity of embedded systems increases, multiple services have to
compete for the limited resources of a single device. This situation is particularly critical for
small embedded devices used in consumer electronics, telecommunication, industrial 

A Generic and Accurate RTOS-centric Embedded System Modelling and Simulation Framework
K Yu ,The Fifth UK Embedded Forum, 2009 ,cs.york.ac.uk
SystemC-based system-level hardware/software co-simulation have become important
issues for early design space exploration in the development of real-time embedded
systems. This paper presents a generic and accurate RTOS-centric embedded system

A framework for compiler driven design space exploration for embedded system customization
K Palem, L Chakrapani ,Advances in Computer Science- , 2005 ,Springer
Designing custom solutions has been central to meeting a range of stringent and
specialized needs of embedded computing, along such dimensions as physical size, power
consumption, and performance that includes real-time behavior. For this trend to continue, 

Formal Modelling in Embedded System Design: a Case Study
R Khoussainov ,Proceedings of Formal , 1999 ,khusainr.myweb.port.ac.uk
Abstract. The real-time reactive nature of embedded systems and rigid timing and
performance requirements imposed by the external environment significantly complicate the
design process for such applications. The use of formal methods for specification and 

ertCPN: The adaptations of the coloured Petri-Net theory for real-time embedded systemmodeling and automatic code generation
W Kurdthongmee ,Songklanakarin Journal of Science, 2003 ,thaiscience.info
A real-time system is a computer system that monitors or controls an external environment.
The system must meet various timing and other constraints that are imposed on it by the real-
time behaviour of the external world. One of the differences between a real-time and a 

Power Estimator Development for Embedded System Memory Tuning
F Vahid, T Givargis, S Cotterell ,JOURNAL OF CIRCUITS , 2002 ,ece.arizona.edu
Memory accesses account for a large percentage of total power in microprocessor-based
embedded systems. The increasing use of microprocessor cores and synthesis, rather than
prefabricated microprocessor chips, creates the opportunity to tune a memory hierarchy to 

A Distributed Embedded System for Modular Self-Reconfigurable Robots
A Seshadri, M Ferretti, A Castano ,ISI Technical Report ISI-TR, 2001 ,cs.cmu.edu
Abstract—Self-reconfigurable or metamorphic robots are modular robots that can change
their shape and size. Such capability is desirable in situations where robots may encounter
unexpected obstacles or difficulties and to perform tasks that are difficult for fixed-shape 

High-level embedded system design
H Mettes ,Master’s thesis, Eindhoven university of technology, 1986 ,alexandria.tue.nl
ABSTRACT In this report we develop a high-level design method for embedded systems
based on CCS (A calculus of communicating systems) and’a variant of CCS called ASCCS.
CCS is used because of its simplicity compared to ASCCS. The reason for using ASCCS

Efficient combination of reusable components in embedded system design
N Fors ,2008 ,research.it.abo.fi
Abstract As modern embedded systems grow in complexity and incorporate increasingly
more powerful hardware, the focus in designing these systems shifts toward the software
part. This stresses the importance of software reuse and early simulations of the systems

BR Montague , Science Department, University of California Santa , 1996 ,ece.umd.edu
The bus interface unit can be used to control the standard PC ISA bus or the embedded system
vari- ant of the ISA bus, PC-104.  The NS486 evaluation board was supported with a suite of
free third-party x86 embedded system tools available for evaluation.

Modeling multimedia workloads for embedded system design
A Maksyagin ,2005 ,e-collection.ethbib.ethz.ch
Abstract To design a successful computer system, designers need to know characteristics of
the computational workload that this system is supposed to process. This knowledge forms
the necessary basis for optimizations of the system. In order to use this knowledge in the

it is, however, of key relevance for embedded system design. As a principle for a local sensor, the
volume imaged is only a small fraction of the assembly workspace.
