Sep 15, 2010: GIS and Multi-Touch Surfaces
Most GIS applications used by utility companies are single user and runs on a regular PC. This makes paper based maps still a convenient alternative owing to its large size and ease of use in team collaboration scenarios. With the advent of Surface Computing technologies, the GIS data can now be viewed on a multi-touch surface. Multi-touch surfaces facilitates multi-user interaction and thus combines the benefits of GIS systems and paper maps. TRLabs has innovated a surface computing platform that is built on top of ArcGIS and Microsoft Silverlight/WPF with concurrency and convenience of use in mind.
Dec 15, 2009: Fault Tolerant Schemes for Cryptography
Nowadays, cryptography involves a large a m o u n t o f d a t a computations and these computation intensive tasks require a high level of accuracy. There are two potential risks in the conventional cryptosystem which are unreliable computations and active attackers along the communication channel. Because of these risks, efficient and light-weight fault tolerant schemes for error detection and correction are crucial and indispensible. The Algorithm Based Fault Tolerant (ABFT) technique has been applied to computation intensive tasks in a variety of fields for several years. This project applies the ABFT concept to cryptosystems so the cryptographic ABFT are capable of using the existing arithemetic logic units (ALUs) embedded in the original algorithms and can be performed concurrently with the cryptographic process without exerting much influence on the original performances. Due to this superiority over the other cryptographic fault tolerant strategies, overhead can be significantly reduced.
Jul 27, 2009: An Efficient Wireless Receiver Design
The employment of transmit diversity schemes has great significance in the context of future wideband wireless communication systems since they enhance transmission reliability with no additional power bandwidth requirements. In broadband data transmissions, however, the channel fades are frequency-selective in nature, which in turn, cause severe inter-symbol interference (ISI) at the receiver. The challenge is to apply space-time block codes (STBC) in the situation where the channel is experiencing doubly dispersive fading.
