Research Institution
Intelligent Automation, Inc. (IAI), with its partner University of Central Florida (UCF), propose to design, develop, and test an Efficient Real-time Resource Allocation (ERRA) co-processor. The optimized efficient resource allocation by ERRA co-processors is critical in decision-making process in mini-mobile platforms as events unfold in the field. This allows for intelligent decisions in the field during events even if the devices are overloaded with data bursts. The key innovations in the novel ERRA co-processor are: (1) high performance innovative co-processor architecture for simplex optimization, change point detection, and adaptive filtering that uses very less power to identify potentially important data, (2) optimal execution to achieve requisite performance with minimal power consumption that is critical for mobile platforms by efficient binding and freeing up of resources, (3) out-of-band secure execution of critical algorithms for collective processing in burst conditions, (4) innovative distributed processing: if the data identified to be processed is important and if the main processor is overloaded the next important data is processed in a neighbor processor after preempting its process, (5) optimized run time speedup in shared, distributed and hybrid memory conditions, and (6) scale up functionality for current and future mini mobile platforms architectures.
