  • An overview of the Tigger object-support operating system framework 

    CAHILL, VINNY (Springer-Verlag, 1996)
    This paper describes the motivations for and main features of Tigger -- a framework for the construction of a family of object-support operating systems that can be tailored for use in a variety of different application ...
  • Power Management for Stationary Machines 

    CAHILL, VINNY (2005)
    This paper examines effective power management of users? stationary desktop PCs in a pervasive computing office environment. The objective being to minimise the building?s electricity consumption while maintaining ...
  • Providing Hard Real-Time Guarantees in Context-Aware Applications: Challenges and Requirements 

    MEIER, RENE; CAHILL, VINNY (IEEE Computer Society, 2005)
    Context-aware applications rely on the ability to perceive the state of the surrounding environment. In this paper, we address a class of such applications where real-time guarantees are required on top of mobile ad hoc ...
  • Proximity groups for mobile Ad Hoc networks 

    SINGH, KULPREET; CAHILL, VINNY; CLARKE, SIOBHAN (2002)
    With the developments in the field of wireless ad-hoc networks combined with low-cost communication and computational devices, pervasive environments are closer to reality than ever. As such environments become more ...
  • Proximity-Based Service Discovery in Mobile Ad Hoc Networks 

    CLARKE, SIOBHAN; CAHILL, VINNY; MEIER, RENE (Springer-Verlag, 2005)
    Existing approaches to service discovery have been developed primarily for environments with a fixed network backbone and typically rely on centralized components being accessible to potential service clients at any ...
  • Quartz: a QoS architecture for open systems 

    CAHILL, VINNY (IEEE, 2000)
    This paper describes an architecture that provides support for quality of service (QoS) specification and enforcement in heterogeneous distributed computing systems. The Quartz QoS architecture has been designed to ...
  • Quartz: Supporting QoS-constrained services in heterogeneous environments 

    CAHILL, VINNY (IEEE, 1998)
    This paper describes an architecture that addresses common problems found in systems supporting QoS specification and enforcement, such as lack of flexibility and expressiveness in the specification of requirements and ...
  • Real + virtual = clever: thoughts on programming smart environments 

    CAHILL, VINNY; HAAHR, MADS (1999)
    Event-based communications has been used successfully in many application domains, one of which is virtual environments. Events are a useful concept in this context because they embody the notion of something happening ...
  • Real-Time Communication in IEEE 802.11 Mobile Ad hoc Networks A Feasibility Study 

    CAHILL, VINNY; WEBER, STEFAN; GLEESON, MARK (2006)
    Achieving predictable communication latency in an ad hoc IEEE 802.11 wireless local area network necessitates an approach that overcomes the impact of the underlying non-deterministic contention-based medium access ...
  • Real-Time Coordination of Autonomous Vehicles 

    CAHILL, VINNY; BOUROCHE, MELANIE (IEEE, 2006)
    Autonomous vehicles seem to be a promising approach to both reducing traffic congestion and improving road safety. However, for such vehicles to coexist safely, they will need to coordinate their behaviour to ensure ...
  • Requirements for an ubiquitous computing simulation and emulation environment 

    CAHILL, VINNY (2006)
    Recent years have seen the maturing of ubiquitous computing middleware and software. Accompanied by research into sensor networks and other sensor-driven applications, widespread deployment and realisation of these ...
  • Research issues in multiple policy optimization using collaborative reinforcement learning 

    DUSPARIC, IVANA; CAHILL, VINNY; DUSPARIC, IVANA (2007)
    Self-organizing techniques have successfully been used to optimize software systems, such as optimization of route stability in ad hoc network routing and optimization of the use of storage space or processing power using ...
  • Roo: A framework for real-time threads. 

    CAHILL, VINNY (IEEE Computer Society Press, 1995)
    Traditional object-oriented real-time systems are often limited an that they provide only one approach to real-time object support. Taking the increasing demand for flexible and extensible object support environments into ...
  • Route profiling - putting context to work. 

    CAHILL, VINNY (ACM Press, 2004)
    Intelligent Transportation Systems are characterised by a requirement for detailed information on extensive transport networks. This information is typically gathered from sensors deployed throughout the network and is ...
  • Security considerations in space and delay tolerant networks 

    CAHILL, VINNY; FARRELL, STEPHEN (2006)
    This paper reviews the Internet-inspired security work on delay tolerant networking, in particular, as it might apply to space missions, and identifies some challenges arising, for both the Internet security community and ...
  • Self-adapting context definition 

    CAHILL, VINNY (2007)
    Many approaches to context-aware computing have focused on providing means for developers to define application contexts. In these approaches, correct application behavior depends on the developer defining the right contexts. ...
  • Self-managed decentralised systems using K-Components and collaborative reinforcement learning 

    CAHILL, VINNY (ACM, 2004)
    Components in a decentralised system are faced with uncertainty as how to best adapt to a changing environment to maintain or optimise system performance. How can individual components learn to adapt to recover from faults ...
