Research page: Smart Building with HVAC Systems is online

We just added a new Research page: The Smart Building with HVAC Systems presents our work on fault-resistant smart HVAC systems. The page contains all needed code to reproduce the results from our paper Improving Energy Efficiency and Thermal Comfort of Smart Buildings with HVAC Systems in the Presence of Sensor Faults that Volkan is […]

Tom's PhD defense

Congratulations Dr. Springer! Today Tom successfully defended his PhD thesis "Adaptive Real-Time Embedded Systems" Abstract of Toms thesis is: Modern embedded systems are required to work in ever increasing dynamic environments, where predicting the computational load on those systems is intractable. However, timely responses to events have to be provided within precise timing constraints in […]

Volkan's Successful PhD Defense

Congratulations Dr. Gunes! Today Volkan successfully defended his PhD thesis "Ensuring Reliability and Fault-Tolerance for the Cyber-Physical System Design" We wish him all the best for his future career!       below please find additional information to Volkans thesis: Committee: Tony Givargis (Chair), Alexandru Nicolau, Ian Harris, Steffen Peter Abstract: The cyber-physical system (CPS) […]

New group members

This year we welcome two new PhD students in our group. Maral Amir comes from San Francisco State University where she received her degree Master of Science in Embedded Electrical & Computer Systems (Engineering), where Maral worked on software and hardware implementations for brain-inspired computing algorithms. Mohammad Eletriby joins us from Ain Shams University in […]

Congratulation Dr. Miller!

We are happy to announce that our student and friend Bailey Miller successfully finished and defended his PhD in Computer Science at UC Riverside. Congratulations Bailey! The title of the thesis is "Accelerating Synchronous Many-Core Networks on FPGAs". The thesis can be found here:  

SEUS 2014

Next week Tom is going to attend SEUS 2014 which will be held in conjunction with the IEEE International Symposium on Object/component/service-oriented Real-time Distributed Computing (ISORC) in Reno – Nevada (USA). Tom will present our paper Resource Synchronization in Hierarchically Scheduled Real-Time Systems using Preemptive Critical Sections
