Three solutions for a robot arm controller using Pascal-Plus, occam and edison (1984)
Journal Article
Kerridge, J. M., & Simpson, D. (1984). Three solutions for a robot arm controller using Pascal-Plus, occam and edison. Software: Practice and Experience, 14(1), 3-15. https://doi.org/10.1002/spe.4380140103

Three currently available concurrent language systems, Pascal‐Plus, occam and Edison, are used to implement a controller for a robot arm. The robot arm allows real parallelism of operation within the movements of the arm. The feasibility and restrict...

Generation of codes with good autocorrelation properties (1983)
Journal Article
Rutter, M., & Grant, P. M. (1983). Generation of codes with good autocorrelation properties. Electronics Letters, 19, 571-572. https://doi.org/10.1049/el%3A19830389

The letter describes a conceptually simple method of generating impulse equivalent burst and cyclic codes, using an all-pass autoregressive moving average (ARMA) filter. These infinite impulse response burst codes may be converted into cyclic cod... Read More about Generation of codes with good autocorrelation properties.

Open-loop transversal equaliser of optimal length (1983)
Journal Article
Rutter, M., & Cowan, C. F. N. (1983). Open-loop transversal equaliser of optimal length. Electronics Letters, 19, 208-210. https://doi.org/10.1049/el%3A19830144

As a rule, in equaliser training algorithms complexity increases with efficiency. Unfortunately, complex recursive algorithms do not suit high-bandwidth systems. This letter describes a nonrecursive technique for the derivation of the weight vect... Read More about Open-loop transversal equaliser of optimal length.

The activities of the BCS/CODASYL DDLC DBAWG (1982)
Journal Article
Kerridge, J. (1982). The activities of the BCS/CODASYL DDLC DBAWG. Computers and Standards, 1(2-3), 161-165. https://doi.org/10.1016/0167-8051%2882%2990025-0

The DBAWG is a research group, based in the United Kingdom, which is working on facilities for data administration. In particular the DBAWG has developed language specifications for a Data Storage Description Language (DSDL) for a CODASYL type databa...

A FORTRAN implementation of Concurrent Pascal (1982)
Journal Article
Kerridge, J. M. (1982). A FORTRAN implementation of Concurrent Pascal. Software: Practice and Experience, 12(1), 45-55. https://doi.org/10.1002/spe.4380120105

This paper describes the transportation of sequential and concurrent Pascal from the SOLO distribution tape to a non‐PDP‐11 like mainframe (IBM 370/145). An interpreter for the idealized virtual machine was written in FORTRAN. Subsequently the PDP‐11... Read More about A FORTRAN implementation of Concurrent Pascal.

A simulator for teaching computer architecture (1980)
Journal Article

PATCOSY--A Database System for the National Health Service (1976)
Journal Article
Kerridge, J. M. (1976). PATCOSY--A Database System for the National Health Service. Computer Journal, 19(2), 98-103. https://doi.org/10.1093/comjnl/19.2.98

PATCOSY (PATient COmputer SYstem) is a data base system which has been designed specifically for the National Health Service environment. The structure of PATCOSY therefore reflects the structure and inter-relationships which exist between the inform... Read More about PATCOSY--A Database System for the National Health Service.
