  • Brennan, Shane; Cahill, Vinny; Clarke, Siobhán (2009)
    Timing analysis is the application of one or more well-established predictive methods to derive the likely timing behaviour of a specific software task executing on a particular hardware platform. Current approaches ...
  • Carton, Andrew; Clarke, Siobhán; Senart, Aline; Cahill, Vinny (IEEE Computer Society, 2007)
    The development of applications for pervasive computing presents a number of challenges to the software engineer. In particular, application adaptation based on context such as environmental factors, device limitations ...
  • Dusparic, Ivana; Cahill, Vinny (2008)
    No abstract available
  • Cahill, Vinny; Baker, Sean; Nixon, Paddy (IEEE Computer Society, 1997)
    peer-reviewed applications that cross the boundaries of different computing machines, operating systems, and programming languages are increasingly the norm. As a result, the need for what might be called “bridging ...
  • Keeney, John; Cahill, Vinny (IEEE Computer Society, 2003)
    We argue that the software user, the developer, the designer and indeed the application logic itself all possess invaluable intelligence to gear how software should adapt itself to changing requirements and changing ...
  • Salkham, As'ad; Cunningham, Raymond; Garg, Anurag; Cahill, Vinny (IEEE Computer Society, 2008)
    The high growth rate of vehicles per capita now poses a real challenge to efficient Urban Traffic Control (UTC). An efficient solution to UTC must be adaptive in order to deal with the highly-dynamic nature of urban ...
  • Dowling, Jim; Cunningham, Raymond; Curran, Eoin; Cahill, Vinny (IEEE Computer Society, 2004)
    This paper introduces Collaborative Reinforcement Learning (CRL), a coordination model for solving system-wide optimisation problems in distributed systems where there is no support for global state. In CRL the autonomic ...
  • Louboutin, Sylvain R.Y.; Cahill, Vinny (IEEE Computer Society, 1997)
    Comprehensive distributed garbage collection in object-oriented distributed systems has mostly been addressed via distributed versions of graph-tracing algorithms, a legacy of centralised garbage collection techniques. Two ...
  • Sterritt, Ashley; Cahill, Vinny (IEEE Computer Society, 2008)
    The Model-to-Model (M2M) transformation stage in a Model-Driven Engineering (MDE) tool chain is used to bridge the large semantic gap between problem-domain abstractions and software artefacts. This transformation is ...
  • Čurn, Jan; Marinescu, Dan; O'Hara, Niall; Cahill, Vinny (IEEE Computer Society, 2013)
    In this paper we consider the problem of cooperative vehicle localisation, in which a group of vehicles are driving in an outdoor environment, each estimating their position using a global positioning system (GPS) and ...
  • Cahill, Vinny; Meier, Rene; Harrington, Anthony (Trinity College Dublin, 2005)
    Integrating individual intelligent transportation systems into comprehensive platforms is a key challenge faced by transport authorities in the provision of optimal service s to users. The use of an ITS architecture ...
  • Dusparic, Ivana; Cahill, Vinny; SFI (IEEE Computer Society, 2009)
    Large-scale agent-based systems are required to self-optimize towards multiple, potentially conflicting, policies of varying spatial and temporal scope. As a result, not all agents may be implementing all policies at all ...
  • Tennina, Stefano; Bouroche, Mélanie; Braga, Pedro; Gomes, Ricardo; Alves, Mario; Mirza, Farrukh; Ciriello, Vincenzo; Carrozza, Gabriella; Oliveira, Pedro; Cahill, Vinny (IEEE Computer Society, 2011)
    Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) have attracted growing interest in the last decade as an infrastructure to support a diversity of ubiquitous computing and cyber-physical systems. However, most research work has focused on ...
  • Asplund, Mikael; Manzoor, Atif; Bouroche, Mélanie; Clarke, Siobhán; Cahill, Vinny (Springer, 2012)
    Increasing demands on safety and energy e ciency will re- quire higher levels of automation in transportation systems. This in- volves dealing with safety-critical distributed coordination. In this paper we demonstrate ...
  • Taylor, Adam; Galván-López, Edgar; Clarke, Siobhán; Cahill, Vinny (2012)
    A key change in the move to Smart Grids (SGs) is the use of dynamic pricing; this together with less reliable energy from renewable resources makes optimising electricity use highly complex. For smart-devices to function ...
  • O'Hara, Niall; Slot, Marco; Marinescu, Dan; Čurn, Jan; Yang, Dawei; Asplund, Mikael; Bouroche, Mélanie; Clarke, Siobhán; Cahill, Vinny (IEEE Computer Society, 2012)
    Research and development in the field of intelligent transportation systems (ITS) can be costly in terms of both time and money. A significant initial and ongoing investment is often required in order to obtain a physical ...
  • Dusparic, Ivana; Cahill, Vinny (IFAAMAS, 2009)
    This paper addresses the challenge of multi-policy optimization in decentralized autonomic systems. We evaluate several multi-policy reinforcement learning-based optimization techniques in an urban tra c control simulation, ...
  • Meier, Rene; Cahill, Vinny (IEEE Computer Society, 2010)
    As mobile applications become more widespread, programming paradigms and middleware architectures designed to support their development are becoming increasingly important. The event-based programming paradigm is a strong ...
  • Sterritt, Ashley; Clarke, Siobhán; Cahill, Vinny (Springer-Verlag, 2010)
    Applying design patterns while developing a software system can improve its non-functional properties, such as extensibility and loose coupling. Precise specification of structure and behaviour communicates the invariants ...
  • Galván-López, Edgar; Harris, Colin; Dusparic, Ivana; Clarke, Siobhán; Cahill, Vinny (IEEE Computer Society, 2012)
    Smart Grid technologies are becoming increasingly dynamic, so the use of computational intelligence is becoming more and more common to support the grid to automatically and intelligently respond to certain requests ...
