Computer systems have increasingly become intelligent, interacting with humans and physical environments in real-time, as part of the societal infrastructure. This evolution of computer systems has raised a paradigm shift toward parallel and distributed systems as a means of processing a very large amount of data in real-time. The primary goal of our research is to establish the principles and mechanisms of parallel and distributed systems for the emerging cyber-physical infrastructure.
Recently, we focus on cross-layer design (see our demo video below), which is a co-design methodology between algorithms and implementation in model-based development of embedded systems such as automotive controllers. Our key technologies contain model-based parallelizer (MBP) where parallelization is considered in mode level, and SHIM (Software-Hardware Interface for Multi-many-core) that enables to make use of multicore hardware information in model level.
Of particular interest at PDSL includes the following research projects:
