Application design for wearable computing by Daniel P Siewiorek ( )
6 editions published in 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 188 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The confluence of decades of computer science and computer engineering research in multimodal interaction (e.g., speech and gesture recognition), machine learning (e.g., classification and feature extraction), software (e.g., web browsers, distributed agents), electronics (e.g., energy-efficient microprocessors, head-mounted displays), design methodology in user-centered design, and rapid prototyping have enabled a new class of computers-wearable computers. The lecture takes the viewpoint of a potential designer or researcher in wearable computing. Designing wearable computers requires attention to many different factors because of the computer's closeness to the body and its use while performing other tasks. For the purposes of discussion, we have created the UCAMP framework, which consists of the following factors: user, corporal, attention, manipulation, and perception. Each of these factors and their importance is described. A number of example prototypes developed by the authors, as well as by other researchers, are used to illustrate these concepts. Wearable computers have established their first foothold in several application domains, such as vehicle and aircraft maintenance and manufacturing, inspection, language translation, and other areas. The lecture continues by describing the next step in the evolution of wearable computers, namely, context awareness. Context-aware computing takes into account a user's state and surroundings, and the mobile computer modifies its behavior based on this information. A user's context can be quite rich, consisting of attributes such as physical location, physiological state, personal history, daily behavioral patterns, and so forth. If a human assistant were given such context, he or she would make decisions in a proactive fashion, anticipating user needs, and acting as a proactive assistant. The goal is to enable mobile computers to play an analogous role, exploiting context information to significantly reduce demands on human attention. Context-aware intelligent agents can deliver relevant information when a user needs that information. These data make possible many exciting new applications, such as augmented reality, context-aware collaboration, and augmented manufacturing. The combined studies and research reported in this lecture suggest a number of useful guidelines for designing wearable computing devices. Also included with the guidelines is a list of questions that designers should consider when beginning to design a wearable computer. The research directions section emphasizes remaining challenges and trends in the areas of user interface, modalities of interaction, and wearable cognitive augmentation. Finally, we summarize the most important challenges and conclude with a projection of future directions in wearable computing

Software-implemented fault insertion : an FTMP example by Edward W Czeck ( Book )
5 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 85 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This report presents a model for fault insertion through software, describes its implementation on a fault tolerant computer, FTMP, presents a summary of fault detection, identifications, and reconfiguration data collected with software implemented fault insertion and compares the results to hardware fault insertion data. The software fault insertion model assumes faults manifest to data errors at the output of a task. The implementation of the software fault insertion model on FTMP allows inserted faults to emulate faults in the processor data path, processor control path, system memory, and system transmit bus. The experimental results showed detection time there was no correlation between software inserted faults, and hardware inserted faults; this is because hardware inserted faults must manifest to errors before detection, whereas software inserted faults immediately exercise the error detection mechanisms. In summary, although software fault insertion does not map directly to hardware fault insertion, experiments indicate software fault insertion as a means to characterize the fault handling capabilities of a system in error detection, identification, and error recovery.

Transient error reliability models based on data analysis by Stephen R McConnel ( Book )
4 editions published between 1979 and 1981 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Experimental data on transient errors from several digital computer systems is presented and analyzed. This is the first large scale public study on the statistical distribution of transient errors. The systems for which data has been collected are the DEC PDP-10 series computers, the CM (trademark) multiprocessor, and the C.vmp fault tolerant microprocessor. Statistical tests indicate that transient errors follow a decreasing hazard rate distribution. This is at variance with the standard assumption of constant hazard rates (exponential distribution) used in reliability modeling, and requires models of greater complexity for accurate results. Models of common fault tolerant redundant structures are developed using the Weibull distribution, which has a time-varying hazard rate. Both analytical and simulation models are used to analyze the differences between the reliabilities predicted by Weibull based transient error models and those predicted by exponential based models. The analysis indicates a significant difference between the models based on the exponential distribution and those based on the decreasing hazard rate Weibull distribution. Reliability differences ranging from -0.10 to +0.20 and factors greater than 2.0 in Mission Time Improvement for Weibull parameters equivalent to measured system behavior are seen in the model results. System designers should be aware of these differences. (Author)
