  • 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 ...
  • Self-Organising Algorithms for Residential Demand Response 

    CAHILL, VINNY; CLARKE, SIOBHAN; TAYLOR, ADAM; DUSPARIC, IVANA (IEEE, 2014)
    Residential Demand Response has shown promising results in smart grid applications. It can be achieved manually or autonomously. The variety of algorithms applied to achieve autonomous Demand Response have lacked a ...
  • Sensor network with delay tolerance (SeNDT) 

    CAHILL, VINNY; FARRELL, STEPHEN (IEEE, 2007)
    As the technology underlying sensor networks becomes more advanced and reliable, ubiquitous computing will come closer to being a reality. This paper details the design and deployment of several sensor nodes that use ...
  • Sensor networks for smart roads 

    CAHILL, VINNY (2006)
    This paper proposes the use of a wireless sensor network of "cat's eye" augmented with embedded processing, communication, and sensing capabilities to monitor vehicle behaviour on augmented roads. The primary goal of the ...
  • Separation of Distributed Real-Time Embedded Concerns with Theme/UML 

    CLARKE, SIOBHAN; CAHILL, VINNY (2008)
    Model-driven engineering (MDE) addresses platform complexity issues by abstracting platformindependent models for subsequent transformation to platform-specific models. This facilitates the design of a single system model ...
  • Sharing objects in a distributed system. 

    CAHILL, VINNY (IEEE Computer Society Press, 1993)
    This paper presents a design for the use of DSM techniques and system-supported synchronisation to support shared access to persistent objects in a distributed environment. We adopt a hybrid approach where the system ...
  • Soilse: A decentralized approach to optimization of fluctuating urban traffic using reinforcement learning 

    CAHILL, VINNY (2010)
    Increasing traffic congestion is a major problem in urban areas, which incurs heavy economic and environmental costs in both developing and developed countries. Efficient urban traffic control (UTC) can help reduce ...
  • A spatial programming model for real global smart space applications 

    MEIER, RENE; CAHILL, VINNY (Springer Berlin / Heidelberg, 2006)
    Global smart spaces are intended to provide their inhabitants with context-aware access to pervasive services and information relevant to large geographical areas. Transportation is one obvious domain for such global ...
