EnviroMic: Towards Cooperative Storage and Retrieval in Audio Sensor Networks

Liqian Luo, Qing Cao, Chengdu Huang, Tarek Abdelzaher, John A. Stankovic, Michael Ward
2007 27th International Conference on Distributed Computing Systems (ICDCS '07)  
Applications of acoustic monitoring with EnviroMic range from the study of mating rituals and social behavior of animals in the wild to audio surveillance of military targets.  ...  The relatively high frequency and large size of audio traces motivate distributed algorithms for coordinating recording tasks, reducing redundancy of data stored by nearby sensors, filtering out silence  ...  The length of the prelude can be chosen such that short-term events are fully recorded with high probability.  ...

Specifically, if there are more threads circulating than are necessary to keep the lock saturated, our approach will selectively cull and passivate some of those threads.  ...  In the worst case CR does no harm, but it often yields performance benefits.  ...  Acknowledgments We thank Alex Kogan, Doug Lea, Jon Howell and Paula J.

Experience Developing the RP3 Operating System

Ray Bryant, Hung-Yang Chang, Bryan S. Rosenburg
1991 Computing Systems  
This paper discusses what we learned about developing operating systems for shared-memory parallel machines such as RP3 and includes recommendations on how we feel such systems should and should not be  ...  Contrary to previous predictions of "hot-spots" on RP3, our measurements showed insignificant delay due to hot-spot tree saturation on the 64-way prototype.  ...  Hot-Spot Contention Hot spot contention, as defined in [16] , was not a problem on RP3x.  ...

There is no forest canopy in hot and dry deserts. Low shrubs and short woody trees make up most of the larger vegetation. Leaves are replete (supplied with nutrients) and conserve water.  ...  In fact, the Antara desert in Chile has spots that only receive rain a few times a century, and some areas have never seen rain. Another reason deserts are hot and dry is the lack of humidity.  ...  Whenever one strand is pulled, a tightening takes place in another spot. Working the knots free takes time and patience, but with careful study and a little luck, it can be accomplished.  ...
