  • Facial biometrics and applications

    Publication Year: 2017, Page(s):4 - 30
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (825 KB)

    Faces carry a lot of information to distinguish different individuals. In this context, biometrics-based verification systems play a major role in terms of recognizing (or confirming) an individual identity, relying on physiological and/or behavioral characteristics among a set of individual biometric traits. In particular, facial recognition is important because it has a relatively low cost (i.e.... View full abstract»

  • A smart approach to calibration - why we should forget calendar-based calibrations

    Publication Year: 2017, Page(s):11 - 12
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (117 KB)

    If the current practice of calendar-based calibration has eventually convinced us that it is a good thing, a brief look at its historical context leads us to a consideration that sheds a totally different light on this issue. First, we will clarify that legal metrology set this practice in place to grant fairness in commercial transactions for both customers and suppliers. View full abstract»

    Mission statements are common in organizations. It is important to explain to the world what your company is trying to accomplish. It is even more important to explain the mission to employees. As you consider applying for a job, or changing jobs, you should spend at least a few minutes thinking about the company's mission and yours. Do they match? Is your participation something you will be proud... View full abstract»

    The most reproducible measurements of dc resistance are made with a four-terminal circuit. Two of the terminals carry electrical current through the resistive element and two are used to pick off the potential difference, or voltage, between opposite ends of the element. If the resistance is known and the voltage is measured, then the current flowing through the device is determined by Ohm's law. View full abstract»

  • Analog integrated lock-in amplifier for optical sensors

    Publication Year: 2017, Page(s):43 - 50
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (834 KB)

    Our work that is described here advances a topology for an analog integrated lock-in amplifier (LIA) for optical sensors. We developed a prototype for application in a plastic optical fiber sensor to measure refractive index in an aqueous medium. The design aims at the integration of all system components in silicon and the generation of a low power and low voltage circuit, to allow its use in por... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (881 KB)

    In many industrial activities, the so-called multiphase flow is commonly found, which denotes the simultaneous stream of two or more distinct substances. A typical example is oil-gas and/or oil-water mixtures flowing through production pipelines in the petroleum industry. Flow behavior often determines the efficiency and safety of plants and equipment where multiphase flow is present. Therefore, m... View full abstract»
