eMuCo (www.emuco.eu) is an international project with a total budget of 4.6M EUR, which is supported by the European Union under the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7) for research and technological development with 2.9M EUR. eMuCo will improve the user experience of mobile devices due to its high performance multi-core approach still providing low power consumption.
Seamless and secure integration of different software environments
"To exploit the enormous performance gain provided by multi-cores as can be seen in today's PCs, we make use of virtualization technologies that enable us to create a flexible and scalable software architecture for embedded mobile devices" says Prof. Dr. Attila Bilgic, who is leading the Integrated Systems institute of RUB and is coordinating the eMuCo project. "Virtualization techniques provide a spatial and temporal separation of the resources, allowing a seamless and secure integration of different software environments, such as applications running on different operating systems and different protocol stacks on the modem subsystem side".
Multi-core platforms point to be the solution of future mobile devices
Multi-core systems for mobile devices are an emerging technology with several paradigms to face. But feature-rich phones with very sophisticated user interfaces, such as the iPhone or the BlackBerry Storm, will need the performance provided by multi-core architectures. eMuCo will exploit the capabilities of multi-core solutions and demonstrate the basic functionality of mechanisms necessary to meet the challenges of their usage. "With the recent advances in wireless networks and the exponential growth in the usage of multimedia applications, multi-core platforms point to be the solution of future mobile devices and with it a new paradigm has emerged, which we have called into the eMuCo project: Load Balancer for Mobile Devices" says Dr. Maria Elizabeth Gonzalez de Izarra, leading the eMuCo research team at RUB. "The rich amount of information provided by the protocol stack and the predictable interdependency of the protocol stack processes mark the difference between a general purposes load balancer and a load balancer for mobile devices, and naturally, it is the key to get the solution for a load balancing over multi-cores with real time constraint considerations on these devices".
This project is coordinated by Prof. Dr. Attila Bilgic and carried out by a consortium of academic and industrial partners: Ruhr-Universität Bochum, Infineon (Germany), Telelogic (Sweden), ARM (United Kingdom), Technische Universität Dresden (Germany), University of York (United Kingdom), "Politehnica" University of Timisoara (Romania), and GWT-TUD (Germany).

University of Maryland researchers contribute to historic detection of gravitational waves and light created by event
On August 17, 2017, at 12:41:04 UTC, scientists made the first direct observation of a merger between two neutron stars--the dense, collapsed cores that remain...
Seven new papers describe the first-ever detection of light from a gravitational wave source. The event, caused by two neutron stars colliding and merging together, was dubbed GW170817 because it sent ripples through space-time that reached Earth on 2017 August 17. Around the world, hundreds of excited astronomers mobilized quickly and were able to observe the event using numerous telescopes, providing a wealth of new data.
Previous detections of gravitational waves have all involved the merger of two black holes, a feat that won the 2017 Nobel Prize in Physics earlier this month....
Material defects in end products can quickly result in failures in many areas of industry, and have a massive impact on the safe use of their products. This is why, in the field of quality assurance, intelligent, nondestructive sensor systems play a key role. They allow testing components and parts in a rapid and cost-efficient manner without destroying the actual product or changing its surface. Experts from the Fraunhofer IZFP in Saarbrücken will be presenting two exhibits at the Blechexpo in Stuttgart from 7–10 November 2017 that allow fast, reliable, and automated characterization of materials and detection of defects (Hall 5, Booth 5306).
When quality testing uses time-consuming destructive test methods, it can result in enormous costs due to damaging or destroying the products. And given that...
Using a new cooling technique MPQ scientists succeed at observing collisions in a dense beam of cold and slow dipolar molecules.
How do chemical reactions proceed at extremely low temperatures? The answer requires the investigation of molecular samples that are cold, dense, and slow at...
Scientists from the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics, using high precision laser spectroscopy of atomic hydrogen, confirm the surprisingly small value of the proton radius determined from muonic hydrogen.
It was one of the breakthroughs of the year 2010: Laser spectroscopy of muonic hydrogen resulted in a value for the proton charge radius that was significantly...
