Advancing Real-Time Virtualization, Cloud-Computing

As more computing is going to the cloud, computers are using shared processors and common platforms, creating new challenges in the response times. Meet the Washington University professors in the School of Engineering & Applied Science who are meeting the challenges. The advancements are critical for real-time systems such as active safety features in automobiles, autonomous cars and ideas for smart cities.

Using Microsoft’s Kinect, researchers found a way to use its motion detection software to create their own X-Ray technology. New research at Washington University is helping to meet the challenges of real-time systems, such as autonomous cars and ideas for smart cities. NASA's commercial crew astronauts try out Boeing's new generation of touch-screen simulators for spaceflight. St. Louis tech startup, taptl, offers ideas for interactive touch screens!
