Thoth, a portable real-time operating system

David R. Cheriton, Michael A. Malcolm, Lawrence S. Melen, Gary R. Sager
1979 Communications of the ACM  
Thoth is a real-time operating system which is designed to be portable over a large set of machines. It is currently running on two minicomputers with quite different architectures.  ...  Because the system is implemented by the same software on different hardware, it has the same interface to user programs. Hence, application programs which use Thoth are highly portable.  ...  Concluding Remarks The original objectives of developing Thoth were to investigate the feasibility of portable operating systems and to provide a tool for teaching real-time programming of minicomputers  ...

Thoth, a portable real-time operating system (Extended Abstract)

David R. Cheriton, Michael A. Malcolm, Lawrence S. Melen, Gary R. Sager
1977 ACM SIGOPS Operating Systems Review  
Extended Abstract Thoth is a portable real-time operating system which has been developed at the University of Waterloo.  ...  Various configurations of Thoth have been running since May 1976; it is currently running on two minicomputers with quite different architectures (Texas Instruments 990 and Data General NOVA).  ...  A third design goal is that the system meet the demands of real-time applications.  ...

The use of geographical informational systems in modern agriculture

Stefan Ghimisi
2021 Journal of Research and Innovation for Sustainable Society  
Precision agriculture is a subsystem of sustainable and ecological agriculture systems, but also for the intensive agriculture system.  ...  In recent years, farmers have gained access to new technologies through the use of GPS-Global Positioning System and Decision Support Systems, which were previously a monopoly of the military arsenal,  ...  The systems for tracking the agricultural fleet allow the location in real time or according to a history, of the agricultural machines and of the employees who use them, from any computer or phone connected  ...

REMOTE SPECTRAL IMAGING USING A LOW COST UAV SYSTEM

C. Tsouvaltsidis, N. Zaid Al Salem, G. Benari, D. Vrekalic, B. Quine
2015 The International Archives of the Photogrammetry, Remote Sensing and Spatial Information Sciences  
In the last five years that Argus has been in operation, we have made over 200 observations over a series of land and ocean targets.  ...  However, limitations in the volume of data due to onboard power constraints and a lack of an onboard camera system make it very difficult to verify these objectives using ground truth.  ...  Vrekalic's guidance was instrumental in aiding to design a UAV system that would be rugged enough to perform field work and gentle enough for a beginner to fly.  ...

Flash: An efficient and portable Web server

Vivek S. Pai, Peter Druschel, Willy Zwaenepoel
1999 USENIX Annual Technical Conference  
Furthermore, the Flash Web server is easily portable since it achieves these results using facilities available in all modern operating systems.  ...  Results indicate that Flash can match or exceed the performance of existing Web servers by up to 50% across a wide range of real workloads.  ...  The Flash server and its AMPED architecture bear some resemblance to Thoth [9] , a portable operating system and environment built using "multi-process structuring."  ...

Distributed process groups in the V Kernel

David R. Cheriton, Willy Zwaenepoel
1985 ACM Transactions on Computer Systems  
This abstraction is used as a software base for constructing distributed systems. As a distributed kernel, the V kernel makes intermachine boundaries largely transparent.  ...  Examples include the group of tile servers, a group of processes executing a particular job, and a group of processes executing a distributed parallel computation.  ...  This is true for both the one-to-one and group real-time send operations. Examples include distributed game programs, distributed monitoring, and real-time group communication in general.  ...
