The research program aims at creating software/hardware systems that adapts their behaviour basing on the working environment. The systems will be composed of CPUs paired with a hardware accelerator, in particular an FPGA device. FPGAs offers the possibility to be partially or totally configured and reconfigured at runtime. In this way, it is possible to adapt their behaviour basing on inputs of agents that are external to our system (the environment). The program, has as a goal to identify part of the algorithms that would benefit a hardware acceleration on FPGA. Part of the computation, will then be offloaded from the CPU to the FPGA, so that the total execution is more efficient.
