The Laboratory for Advanced System Software (LASS) investigates systems issues for distributed systems ranging from large server clusters to networks of small sensors. Our past and current research has focused on issues in operating systems, distributed systems, networking, mobile systems, web and multimedia. We build prototype systems and understand them using analysis and experimentation.
- Use of virtualization technology for server clusters and dekstops.
- Design of self-managing data centers.
- Design of self-managing storage systems.
- Storage and data management issues for wireless sensor networks.
- Design of camera sensor networks.
- Design of mobile robotic sensor networks.
- Ubiquitious deployment of positioning technology such as GPS.
- Emergence of numerous technologies such as RFID and low power sensors.
- Wide availability of digital recording devices.
