- Project: Design Strategies for Real-Time High-Performance Multimedia Applications on Multiprocessors
Recently, performance of general-purpose multiprocessor platforms has
passed the threshold to make it possible to simulate realistic environments
and let users interact with these virtual environments with (almost) all
senses in real-time. At the same time, multiprocessors have become a
cost-effective technology making design methods
for performance demanding real-time applications targeting multiprocessors
The main goal of this project is to fill important gaps towards a system
architecture that simplify the design of virtual-reality applications
targeted for multiprocessors. We particularly study design principles of
parallel algorithms for real-time computer graphics and of
quality-of-service negotiating real-time scheduling algorithms.
