  • Sliding window support for image processing in autonomous vehicles 

    Taranco Serna, Raúl; Arnau Montañés, José María; González Colás, Antonio María (2022)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Camera-based autonomous driving extensively ma-nipulates images for object detection, object tracking, or camera-based localization tasks. Therefore, efficient and fast image processing is crucial in those systems. ...
  • DTexL: Decoupled raster pipeline for texture locality 

    Joseph, Diya; Aragón Alcaraz, Juan Luis; Parcerisa Bundó, Joan Manuel; González Colás, Antonio María (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2022)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Contemporary GPU architectures have multiple shader cores and a scheduler that distributes work (threads) among them, focusing on load balancing. These load balancing techniques favor thread distributions that are detrimental ...
  • ecoHMEM: Improving object placement methodology for hybrid memory systems in HPC 

    Jordà Peroliu, Marc; Rai, Siddharth; Ayguadé Parra, Eduard; Labarta Mancho, Jesús José; Peña Monferrer, Antonio José (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2022)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Recent byte-addressable persistent memory (PMEM) technology offers capacities comparable to storage devices and access times much closer to DRAMs than other non-volatile memory technology. To palliate the large gap with ...
