The rising Ambient Intelligence imaginative and prescient has the capability to essentially switch our international. This quantity is a preview into the subsequent period of computing. It investigates the impression of Ambient Intelligence on embedded approach layout. Combining visionary contributions with papers on fresh advancements, it brings to mild the demanding situations in procedure layout in the direction of pleasing the Ambient Intelligence promise. themes lined diversity from processor architectures and embedded software program to cognitive robotics and sensor networks, and from quality-of-service and energy-efficient layout to protection and fault tolerance.

While the first and last constraints push towards custom-designed devices‚ the second and the third ones force to resort to programmable architectures. The wide variety of WLAN standards‚ in particular‚ makes programmability mandatory. Besides programmability‚ some degree of reconfigurability is also desirable‚ particularly in the case of small‚ incremental upgrades of the system. In the following subsection we discuss a commercial product as an example of a device that includes‚ to some extent‚ all the above features.
Most of the performance enhancement features adopted in Itanium are already in the region of diminishing returns: there is a growing disproportion between the number of transistors (and power consumption) dedicated to computation and those dedicated to storage and communication. Furthermore‚ even though huge on-chip caches and very high performance I/O circuits can ease the latency and throughput bottlenecks‚ there is limited parallelism left to be exploited in single instruction stream. Simultaneous multi-threading (SMT) is emerging as the new architectural leit-motif ‚ which can push the discovery of new sources of parallelism one step further.
This analysis point out what are the essential requirements of a wireless sensor network in an ambient intelligence context Low-energy consumption‚ in the order of the tens of Low-cost (in the order of few cents)‚ small size (in the order of cubic millimeters). Requirements related to sensor re-configurability and/or adaptive features should be considered as secondary issues. The very limited cost would make disposing old sensors and replacing them with new ones cheaper than reprogramming them.
