    In this paper, a qualitative shape model for 2D semi-fractals is presented. First, based on iterated functions system (IFS) theory and formal language theory, a shape representation formalism called regular generation system (RGS) is proposed to qualitatively represent 2D semi-fractal shape. Then, based on an inductive automata learning algorithm, a modeling procedure for natural semi-fractals is ... View full abstract»

    In this paper we describe a vision-based mapping system for mobile robot navigation that is fast, simple and requires very modest computational resources. The system comes in two parts: a visual range subsystem and a map building subsystem. The visual range subsystem acts as a kind of `virtual range sensor': it takes as input a stream of images and produces as output a stream of range-and-bearing ... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (556 KB)

    An objective thing can be understood as a problem. Zhang bo and Zhang ling (1990) offered a method of decomposing and resolving a problem by establishing equivalence relations on the domain, parting and refining the problem, and forming a semi ordering lattice. So, the paper offers the concept of a set of dynamic autonomous objects that communicate (DAOC) on a distributed system. By parting and re... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (399 KB)

    We present the axiom definition of the possibility-probability consistency measure to the experiments with infinite outcomes. This definition generalizes the one proposed by M. Delgado and S. Moral (1987), in which only the experiments with finite outcomes are concerned. Also, three classes of possibility-probability consistency measures are obtained, which generalize the ones proposed by L.A. Zad... View full abstract»

    This paper defines the feature symbol random field (FSRF) of feature texture images and suggests a novel FSRF-Gibbs model for texture segmentation. The advantages of FSRF are that it can generalize the spatial changed texture feature vectors which come from multichannel analysis, meanwhile, significantly easing the estimation problem of MRF. As a result, finer and more reasonable segmentation is e... View full abstract»

    Virtual reality (VR) features an impressive virtual world which operates like a real one. However, convenient tools for the VR construction work are not available yet, although there are tools like OpenInventor and WorldTooLKit (WTK) which relieve programmers of some low level and hardware related jobs. One of the key problems under discussion is to find a uniform and well organized structure for ... View full abstract»

    In this paper, we will pay attention to the spline wavelets which are real-type wavelets and have good characteristics such as compact support, the symmetric property and so on. We propose an RI-Spline wavelet which is complex-type wavelet and has the compact support, and we confirm the effectivity of this wavelet in the continuous case by a model signal. Next, for the application of the spline wa... View full abstract»

    Mathematical models play an important role in the study of the human physiological system, and they are widely used in system simulation. However, little research has been done on applying mathematical models to quantitative reasoning. The authors constructed an object oriented and data-driven intelligent knowledge base (IKB) from a human mathematical model. It can perform intelligent operations s... View full abstract»

    OMT (Object Modeling Technique) is an informal software development tool. The main feature of the informal method is that it describes a system adopting natural language and intuition graphics. In order to increase the tightness and decrease the ambiguity, the paper presents a formalization of OMT. Moreover, the paper discusses an automatic translation development tool from a formal OMT to a C++ p... View full abstract»

    According to the linear relationship between input and output in a system, the paper derives a time series analyses model ARC(2) with constant coefficients and orders. This model is fit to a system with linear parameter relationship. For a system with nonlinear parameter relationship, because the model is not fit, the residue from the model is large. So residue square sum can be used for monitorin... View full abstract»
