  • CaffePresso: Accelerating Convolutional Networks on Embedded SoCs
    • Abstract: Gopalakrishna Hegde, Siddhartha, Nachiket Kapre

      Auto-tuning and parametric implementation of deep learning kernels allow off-the-shelf accelerator-based embedded platforms to deliver high-performance and energy-efficient mappings of the inference phase of lightweight neural networks. Low-complexity classifiers are characterized by operations on small image maps with two to three deep layers and few class labels. For these use cases, we consider a range of embedded systems with 20W power budgets such as the Xilinx ZC706 (FPGA), NVIDIA Jetson TX1 (GPU), TI Keystone II (DSP), and Adapteva Parallella (RISC+NoC). In CaffePresso, we combine auto-tuning of the implementation parameters, and platform-specific constraints deliver optimized solutions for each input ConvNet specification.

  • LOCUS: Low-Power Customizable Many-Core Architecture for Wearables
    • Abstract: Cheng Tan, Aditi Kulkarni, Vanchinathan Venkataramani, Manupa Karunaratne, Tulika Mitra, Li-Shiuan Peh

      Application requirements, such as real-time response, are pushing wearable devices to leverage more powerful processors inside the SoC (system on chip). However, existing wearable devices are not well suited for such challenging applications due to poor performance, and the conventional powerful many-core architectures are not appropriate either due to the stringent power budget in this domain. We propose LOCUS—a low-power, customizable, many-core processor for next-generation wearable devices. LOCUS combines customizable processor cores with a customizable network on a message-passing architecture to deliver very competitive performance/watt—an average 3.1× compared to quad-core ARM processors used in state-of-the-art wearable devices. A combination of full system simulation with representative applications from the wearable domain and RTL synthesis of the architecture show that 16-core LOCUS achieves an average 1.52× performance/watt improvement over a conventional 16-core shared memory many-core architecture.

  • Improving Write Performance and Extending Endurance of Object-Based NAND
           Flash Devices
    • Abstract: Jie Guo, Chuhan Min, Tao Cai, Yiran Chen

      Write amplification is a major cause of performance and endurance degradations in NAND flash-based storage systems. In an object-based NAND flash device (ONFD), two causes of write amplification are onode partial update and cascading update. Here, onode is a type of small-sized object metadata, and multiple onodes are stored in one NAND flash page. Updating one onode invokes partial page update (i.e., onode partial update), incurring unnecessary migration of the un-updated data. Cascading update denotes updating object metadata in a cascading manner due to object data update or migration. Although there are only several bytes that need to be updated in the object metadata, one or more pages have to be re-written accordingly.

           Estimation on Many-Core Platforms
    • Abstract: Charles Leech, Charan Kumar, Amit Acharyya, Sheng Yang, Geoff V. Merrett, Bashir M. Al-Hashimi

      This article investigates the use of many-core systems to execute the disparity estimation algorithm, used in stereo vision applications, as these systems can provide flexibility between performance scaling and power consumption. We present a learning-based runtime management approach that achieves a required performance threshold while minimizing power consumption through dynamic control of frequency and core allocation. Experimental results are obtained from a 61-core Intel Xeon Phi platform for the aforementioned investigation.

  • Transmission Adaptation for Battery-Free Relaying
    • Abstract: Zejue Wang, Hongjia Li, Dan Hu, Song Ci

      Energy harvesting (EH)–enabled relaying has attracted considerable attention as an effective way to prolong the operation time of energy-constrained networks and extend coverage beside desired survivability and rate of transmission. In related literature, the Harvest-Store-Use (HSU) model is usually utilized to describe the energy flow behavior of the EH system. However, the half-duplex (HD) constraint of HSU that harvested energy can only be used after being temporally stored in energy buffer may reduce effective transmission time. Thus, we first construct the full-duplex (FD) energy flow behavior model of the EH system where the harvested energy can be tuned to power load and being stored simultaneously.

  • OPPC: An Optimal Path Planning Charging Scheme Based on Schedulability
           Evaluation for WRSNs
    • Abstract: Chi Lin, Yanhong Zhou, Houbing Song, Chang Wu Yu, Guowei Wu

      The lack of schedulability evaluation of previous charging schemes in wireless rechargeable sensor networks (WRSNs) degrades the charging efficiency, leading to node exhaustion. We propose an Optimal Path Planning Charging scheme, namely OPPC, for the on-demand charging architecture. OPPC evaluates the schedulability of a charging mission, which makes charging scheduling predictable. It provides an optimal charging path which maximizes charging efficiency. When confronted with a non-schedulable charging mission, a node discarding algorithm is developed to enable the schedulability. Experimental simulations demonstrate that OPPC can achieve better performance in successful charging rate as well as charging efficiency.

  • Harvest Energy from the Water: A Self-Sustained Wireless Water Quality
           Sensing System
    • Abstract: Qi Chen, Ye Liu, Guangchi Liu, Qing Yang, Xianming Shi, Hongwei Gao, Lu Su, Quanlong Li

      Water quality data is incredibly important and valuable, but its acquisition is not always trivial. A promising solution is to distribute a wireless sensor network in water to measure and collect the data; however, a drawback exists in that the batteries of the system must be replaced or recharged after being exhausted. To mitigate this issue, we designed a self-sustained water quality sensing system that is powered by renewable bioenergy generated from microbial fuel cells (MFCs). MFCs collect the energy released from native magnesium oxidizing microorganisms (MOMs) that are abundant in natural waters. The proposed energy-harvesting technology is environmentally friendly and can provide maintenance-free power to sensors for several years.

  • Efficient, Long-Term Logging of Rich Data Sensors Using Transient Sensor
    • Abstract: Andres Gomez, Lukas Sigrist, Thomas Schalch, Luca Benini, Lothar Thiele

      While energy harvesting is generally seen to be the key to power cyber-physical systems in a low-cost, long-term, efficient manner, it has generally required large energy storage devices to mitigate the effects of the source’s variability. The emerging class of transiently powered systems embrace this variability by performing computation in proportion to the energy harvested, thereby minimizing the obtrusive and expensive storage element. By using an efficient Energy Management Unit (EMU), small bursts of energy can be buffered in an optimally sized capacitor and used to supply generic loads, even when the average harvested power is only a fraction of that required for sustained system operation.

  • A See-through-Wall System for Device-Free Human Motion Sensing Based on
           Battery-Free RFID
    • Abstract: Zhongqin Wang, Fu Xiao, Ning Ye, Ruchuan Wang, Panlong Yang

      A see-through-wall system can be used in life detection, military fields, elderly people surveillance. and gaming. The existing systems are mainly based on military devices, customized signals or pre-deployed sensors inside the room, which are very expensive and inaccessible for general use. Recently, a low-cost RFID technology has gained a lot of attention in this field. Since phase estimates of a battery-free RFID tag collected by a commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) RFID reader are sensitive to external interference, the RFID tag could be regarded as a battery-free sensor that detects reflections off targeted objects. The existing RFID-based system, however, needs to first learn the environment of the empty room beforehand to separate reflections off the tracked target.

  • Joint Optimization of Sensing and Power Allocation in Energy-Harvesting
           Cognitive Radio Networks
    • Abstract: Hang Hu, Hang Zhang, Jianxin Guo, Feng Wang

      The energy-harvesting cognitive radio (CR) network is proposed to improve the spectrum efficiency and energy efficiency. We focus on the optimization of sensing time and power allocation to maximize the throughput of the energy-harvesting CR network subject to the energy causality constraint and collision constraint. Based on the classification of operating regions, the optimization problem is divided into two sub-problems. Then, the efficient iterative Algorithm 1 and Algorithm 2 are proposed to solve sub-problem (A) and sub-problem (B), respectively. Numerical results show that a significant improvement in the throughput is achieved via joint optimization of sensing time and power allocation.

  • R 3: Reliable Over-the-Air Reprogramming on
           Computational RFIDs
    • Abstract: Die Wu, Li Lu, Muhammad Jawad Hussain, Songfan Li, Mo Li, Fengli Zhang

      Computational Radio Frequency Identification (CRFID) tags operate solely on harvested energy and have emerged as viable platforms for a variety of ubiquitous sensing and computation applications. Due to their battery-less nature, these tags can be permanently deployed in hard-to-reach places where the possibility of tag access is eliminated. In such scenarios, maintaining and upgrading the tag’s firmware becomes infeasible because programming tools, including wired interface and PC-based software, are required to erase, modify, or reprogram the microcontroller unit’s memory. Such limitations necessitate the demand for an over-the-air (OTA) scheme, which can wirelessly reprogram or upgrade the firmware in CRFID tags. In this article, we present R3—a reliable OTA reprogramming scheme that is compliant with EPC protocol and requires no hardware upgrade to RFID reader or CRFID tag.

  • Predictive Retransmissions for Intermittently Connected Sensor Networks
           with Transmission Diversity
    • Abstract: MD. Majharul Islam Rajib, Asis Nasipuri

      Batteryless wireless sensor networks that rely on energy harvested from the environment often exhibit random power outages due to limitations of energy resources, which give rise to intermittent connectivity and long transmission delays. To improve the delay performance in such networks, we consider a design strategy that uses predictive retransmissions to maximize the probability of success for each transmission. This is applied to two different transmission diversity schemes: cooperative relaying over unicast routes and opportunistic routing. Performance evaluations from theoretical models and simulations are presented that show that significant gains can be achieved using the proposed approach in such networks.

  • Near-Optimal Co-Deployment of Chargers and Sink Stations in Rechargeable
           Sensor Networks
    • Abstract: Songyuan Li, Lingkun Fu, Shibo He, Youxian Sun

      Wireless charging technology has drawn great attention of both academia and industry in recent years, due to its potential of significantly improving the system performance of sensor networks. The emergence of an open-source experimental platform for wireless rechargeable sensor networks, Powercast, has made the theoretical research closer to reality. This pioneering platform is able to recharge sensor nodes much more efficiently and allows different communication protocols to be implemented upon users’ demands. Different from the RFID-based model widely used in the existing works, Powercast designs the charger and sink station separately. This leads to a new design challenge of cooperatively deploying minimum number of chargers and sink stations in wireless rechargeable sensor networks.

  • Operating Energy-Neutral Real-Time Systems
    • Abstract: Peter Wägemann, Tobias Distler, Heiko Janker, Phillip Raffeck, Volkmar Sieh, Wolfgang SchröDer-Preikschat

      Energy-neutral real-time systems harvest the entire energy they use from their environment. In such systems, energy must be treated as an equally important resource as time, which creates the need to solve a number of problems that so far have not been addressed by traditional real-time systems. In particular, this includes the scheduling of tasks with both time and energy constraints, the monitoring of energy budgets, as well as the survival of blackout periods during which not enough energy is available to keep the system fully operational. In this article, we address these issues presenting EnOS, an operating-system kernel for energy-neutral real-time systems.

  • Green-Energy-Powered Cognitive Radio Networks: Joint Time and Power
    • Abstract: Chi Xu, Wei Liang, Haibin Yu

      This article studies a green-energy-powered cognitive radio network (GCRN) in an underlay paradigm, wherein multiple battery-free secondary users (SUs) capture both the spectrum and the energy of primary users (PUs) to communicate with an access point (AP). By time division multiple access, each SU transmits data to AP in the allocated time and harvests energy from the RF signals of PUs otherwise, all in the same licensed spectrum concurrently with PUs. Thus, the transmit power of each SU is jointly constrained by the peak interference power at PU and the harvested energy of SU. With the formulated green coexistence paradigm, we investigate the sum-throughput maximization problem with respect to time and power allocation, which is non-convex.
