    The spoken communication between human and a machine is difficult and challenging task. Under the noisy background, it is more difficult as the speech collecting microphone collects noisy signal. In this paper we describe a PVDF based microphone that collects bone conducted sound of the speaker while discriminating the background noise. The PVDF microphone is placed on the forehead of the speaker.... View full abstract»

    In this paper, we propose a new approach for digital image watermarking in DCT domain. A texture analysis is applied on each 8x8 DCT blocks in order to classify the block as texture or non-texture region. The genetic algorithms (GAs) are then performed to find out the optimal parameters for watermark embedding, independently for each region type. The experimental results show that the proposed app...

    Shape of single microcalcifications (muCa++s) and distribution of them in a cluster are two key features for a radiologist to diagnose this abnormality appearing on mammograms into benign type or malignant type of breast cancer. These two features from two-dimensional (2-D) mammogram image from two mammographic views, cranio-caudad view (CC) and medio-lateral oblique view (MLO), are inevitable con... View full abstract»

    This paper proposes to use image processing to duplicate a key grooves and a key cuts [1]. The first step of this research is taking a cross-sectional image of the key grooves and top-sectional image the key cuts. Exploiting binary image enhancement to acquire a contour of the key grooves and key cuts. Then transform the image data to contour data presented by coordinate(x,y). This information is ...

    This paper, proposes firearm identification method based on rotation invariant feature of cartridge case image. The rotation invariance feature is represented by the absolute value of Fourier coefficients of polar image of cartridge case on circles with different radii. The absolute value of Fourier coefficients is considered as the individual feature of the particular gun. Finally, the firearm ca... View full abstract»

    This paper investigates the issue of acoustic feedback in multichannel active noise control (ANC) systems. The presence of acoustic feedback degrades the performance of the ANC systems, and in the worst case the ANC system may become unstable. Here we propose a simplified solution for acoustic feedback modeling and neutralization during the online operation of multichannel ANC systems. The computa... View full abstract»

    Parallel coupled-line filter covers odd and even wave coupling of transmission lines. Cascading parallel coupled-line sections gives rise to a bandpass filter structure. Since conventional parallel coupled-line filter has poor spurious response and isolation performance, step impedance technique is added to improve its performance.
