C-REX: Concurrent Data Structure Design and Optimization for CPU-GPU Heterogeneous Computing

About the Job

Title: Concurrent Data Structure Design and Optimization for CPU-GPU Heterogeneous Computing

Mentor: Dr. Byunghyun Jang

Description:
In multithreaded shared memory systems, threads perform tasks concurrently and synchronize with one another through data structures in logically shared memory. Data structures play a crucial role in achieving good performance on such systems. Recently introduced tightly-coupled CPU-GPU heterogeneous processors are such shared memory systems where latency-oriented CPU threads and throughput-oriented GPU threads synchronize and communicate with one another through shared data structures. They may read and write the same or nearby memory addresses simultaneously. Therefore, the efficiency of these data structures is crucial to the success of these emerging platforms. This project is to design and optimize concurrent data structures that scale well across a spectrum of concurrency demands. Among many important data structures, tree and graph are two data structures that this project will focus on. These two data structures play an increasingly important role in emerging big-data applications.


Courses required:
CSCI 211 Computer Science III
CSCI 223 Computer Org. & Assembly Language

Courses preferred:
CSCI 433 Algorithm and Data Structure Analysis

C-REX: High Accuracy Indoor Localization by Smartphones

About the Job

Title: High Accuracy Indoor Localization by Smartphones

Mentor: Feng Wang

Description:

Indoor localization has many important real world applications. For example, during emergency situations such as building on fire, first responders can use this technology to quickly locate people who need help as well as locate themselves for better dispatching strategies. However, due to the lack of GPS signals in indoor environments, indoor localization is a challenging issue and a number of research works have been done to improve the accuracy of indoor localization with various extra devices such as RFIDs and specialized sensors. This project aims to investigate various ways to achieve high accuracy indoor localization via a daily used device, i.e. smartphone. Nowadays smartphones are integrated with a number of sensors such as inertia, accelerometer, gyroscope sensors, which can provide rich information about the location of the users. In addition, signals and connections from wireless communications such as WiFi and cellular networks can also provide useful information to locate the users. In this project, a platform will be built on a smartphone to test various indoor localization algorithms, evaluate their pros and cons, and explore potential ways to improve the indoor localization accuracy.

Courses required: CSCI 361, CSCI 423,

Courses preferred: CSCI 561, CSCI 458

Skills needed:
C/Java programming, mobile programming (Android/iOS), network (socket) programming, computer algorithms

Race Clock Operator

About the Job

Run Oxford, a running club, is in need of someone with a strong technical background to help run their race timing system. Currently only one timer is employed, and with a recent partnership, Run Oxford is looking to expand.

The races and work would be mainly on the weekends, making this a weekend job. Timers make $25/hour and could also help set up and break everything down after the race.


They use a proprietary commercial system that uses RFID (Radio-frequency identification) technology to time the runners. The software is also a commercial package.
Programming experience is needed for programming macros using commands the RunScore system can interpret.
The tag read system collects and sends tag reads to the scoring software through a TCP/IP connection. Two programs control the data connection and transfer the reads to the server software. The server software matches reads with the runner database and scores the race based on the macros. The server software also sends score data to a client computer which enables label printing for runner results and scoring printouts.

Requirements
The ability to troubleshoot data connections
Learn the software and the system. This is expected to take longer than a few on-site visits.
