  1. This paper focuses on the problem of multi-robot source-seeking, where a group of mobile sensors localizes and moves close to a single source using only local measurements. Drawing inspiration from the optimal sensor placement research, we develop an algorithm that estimates the source location while approaches the source following gradient descent steps on a loss function defined on the Fisher information. We show that exploiting Fisher information gives a higher chance of obtaining an accurate source location estimate and naturally leads the sensors to the source. Our numerical experiments demonstrate the advantages of our algorithm, including faster convergence to the source than other algorithms, flexibility in the choice of the loss function, and robustness to measurement modeling errors. Moreover, the performance improves as the number of sensors increases, showing the advantage of using multi-robots in our source-seeking algorithm. We also implement physical experiments to test the algorithm on small ground vehicles with light sensors, demonstrating success in seeking a moving light source.

  2. Over the past decade, SIMD (single instruction multiple data) or vector architectures have made significant advances, now existing across a wide range of devices from commodity CPUs to high performance computing (HPC) cores. Intel's AVX (Advanced Vector Extensions) architecture has been one of the most popular SIMD extensions to commodity and HPC CPUs from Intel. Over the past few years, Arm has made significant inroads with its new SVE (Scalable Vector Extension), used in the supercomputer of the top place on the Top500 list. As SIMD has become more advanced and more important, it has become equally important the compilers support these architecture extensions. In this paper, we present our approach of source-to-source compiler transformation of explicit vectorization constructs using the OpenMP SIMD directive. We present the design of a unified IR that is easily translated to AVX and SVE vector architectures. Finally, we conduct performance evaluations on Intel AVX and Arm SVE to demonstrate how this method of vectorization can bridge the gap between auto- and manual- vectorization.
