    According to the reminiscences of a senior citizen, at some time during the summer of 1895 Marconi carried out original wireless transmission experiments near the village of Salvan in Switzerland. The IEEE acknowledged this event and inaugurated a Historical Milestone on September 22, 2003. And now the ITU recognized the site of Salvan ldquofor its invaluable contribution to the Telecommunication Heritage.rdquo But Marconi apparently never mentioned the name of Salvan, and this historical episode is not recorded in the archives of the Marconi Museum in Pontecchio.

    This video presents experiments conducted within the final review meeting demonstration session of the AIRobots project. AIRobots started at 2010 and the final review meeting took place on 22 of March, 2013. The presented experiments cover a wide area of the challenges related with aerial industrial inspection. In particular, multiple test-cases related with both vision-based and contact-based inspection and in general physical interaction are shown. It is highlighted that these experiments were recorded live during the project demonstration and evaluation process. View full abstract»

    Using 3D for rebalancing the visual system of amblyopic children

    Amblyopia or “lazy” eye is a disorder of the visual system that causes poor vision in an eye that is otherwise physically normal, and it affects 2–3% of the population, which equates to conservatively around 10 million people under the age of 8 years worldwide. Amblyopia is a neurologically active process: the problem is caused by either no transmission or poor transmission of the visual stimulation through the optic nerve to the brain. With time, if no treatment is performed, the weak eye becomes even weaker and the other eye becomes dominant. Amblyopia is classically treated by clarifying the visual image with glasses, and patching (totally or partially) the dominant eye in order to force the use of the amblyopic eye. Patching suffers from several problems: it is unpopular, prolonged, and it can sometimes disrupts any residual fusion between the visions of the eyes. This results often in noncompliance with the therapy. Several alternatives have been introduced, including partial occlusion and vision rebalancing in which the image to the lazy eye is enhanced and the image to the good eye is penalized. We present how a 3D technology can be used to realize a system for vision rebalancing of video clips which exploits the stereo vision of the 3D system. This technology is relatively inexpensive, easy to use also in a domestic environment, with recreational activities enjoyable by the children, and easy to extend. We have implemented a prototype software system which processes a video and sends a penalized version to the good eye and an enhanced version to the lazy eye. We use a “framesever” for runtime video processing and several image filters and meta-filters to obtain the final video to be viewed by the patient. We argue for the viability of the proposed method in the treatment of amblyopic children. View full abstract»

    Monopulse Aerials for Airborne Radars

    The paper begins by summarising the characteristics of a number of mono-pulse aerials applicable to airborne radar. For such a use, it is often important that the aerial has low side lobes. Good sidelobe performance may be obtained with a flat plate array which can have an accurately controlled aperture distribution and is free from feeder blockage and spillover. The development of a novel flat plate sandwich wire array is described and some experimental results are presented. View full abstract»

    IEEE Conference Publications

    This paper collects and analyzes a list of application scenarios for inspections of power generation and petrochemical processing facilities using unmanned aerial vehicles. Based on this list of applications, general requirements for future aerial inspection robots are derived to serve as potential benchmarks for further research and development in this field. In this context the paper also discusses the need for unmanned aerial vehicles not only capable of pure visual inspections but also providing the means for inspection by contact. View full abstract»

    The Measured Performance of a Millimetre-Wave Frequency Multiplexing Unit for Trunk Waveguide Communication

    A rectangular waveguide commutating-hybrid array channelling filter and a centre-excited band branching unit have been combined to form a frequency division multiplexing (f.d.m.) network in the 32-50GHz frequency region. These units terminate the circular waveguide in a millimetric trunk communication system. The 32-90GHz frequency range is divided into transmit-receive sub-bands by the band branching unit which also transduces the TE01° mode in circular waveguide into the TE10 ¿ mode of rectangular waveguide. A commutating-hybrid array, constructed from rectangular waveguide, further divides each 32-40GHz and 41-49GHz sub-bands into sixteen individual channels spaced 0.5GHz apart. For these sub-bands the average insertion losses measured for the complete f.d.m. network, i.e. between the circular waveguide input to the channel output, are 2.0 and 2.88dB. This paper summarizes the operating principles and measured electrical characteristics. A statistical analysis of results is presented together with an outline of the mechanical construction employed. View full abstract»
