NASA/ESA Conference on Adaptive Hardware and Systems (2008: Noordwijk, The Netherlands) Ed. by Didier Keymeulen et al.
Computer Society Press
A June 2008 conference brought together leading researchers from the adaptive hardware and systems community to exchange experiences and share new ideas in the field. Papers from the conference are presented here, touching on themes such as fundamentals and theory, adaptive technology Adaptive technology is the name for products which help people who cannot use regular versions of products, primarily people with physical disabilities such as limitations to vision, hearing, and mobility. in analog/digital/mixed circuits, optical systems, reconfigurable devices, morphogenetic morphogenetic /mor·pho·ge·net·ic/ (mor?fo-je-net´ik) producing growth; producing form or shape. and cellular adaptive hardware, and fault-tolerant and self-repair systems. Application areas addressed include sensing, image processing image processing
Set of computational techniques for analyzing, enhancing, compressing, and reconstructing images. Its main components are importing, in which an image is captured through scanning or digital photography; analysis and manipulation of the image, accomplished , communications, biometrics, forensics See computer forensics. and security, and space applications. Some specific topics examined are gate-level evolutionary development using cellular automata, mapping reconfigurable antennas using graphs, and a new system-level reconfigurable lossless See lossless compression.
(algorithm, compression) lossless - A term describing a data compression algorithm which retains all the information in the data, allowing it to be recovered perfectly by decompression.
Unix compress and GNU gzip perform lossless compression. image compression system for space applications. Other topics include scalable self-configurable architecture for reusable space systems, distributed adaptability and mobility in space-based wireless pico-satellite sensor networks, and fragile IP watermarking techniques.
