    The Unmanned technology is now one of key features on the future combat scenario. For example, USA support various military projects to train the high-tech soldiers, land warrior and object force warrior, and to develop the small reconnaissance robots. Korea also established the plan of the military reform in 2005, and started to support the research and development for building more advanced and ... View full abstract»

    Motivated by the needs to accommodate size/shape variations in non-traditional robotics and emerging human-centered applications, this talk presents recently developed novel methods (referred to here as magflexonics) that enable uses of embedded magnetic fields for cost-effective design/control of flexible structures while allowing for natural or engineered compliance. As a medium of energy conver... View full abstract»

    The rapid pace of innovation in the areas of control, computation, and communication is leading the way for the class of networked multi-agent systems that are characterized by their complex interconnections, diversity of components, and the interactions with the physical world and possibly humans. These systems offer a vision of increased automation and benefit for society from environmental, eco... View full abstract»

    The purpose of tracking technology as it is currently used is to detect the position of a moving object. The leading position detection methods are classified as active type and passive type methods. Typical active type methods include radiofrequency identification (RFID) tags and ultrasonic waves, and passive type methods are global positioning systems (GPS) and cameras. RFID tags are being used ... View full abstract»

    Ultrasonic sensors are often utilized for perceiving the outside world. In this paper, we propose the construction of a new ultrasonic recognition system for the identification of a pillar-like object located at a free position. The proposed recognition system consists of an ultrasonic transmitter, an ultrasonic receiver, and a recognition unit. The system's receiver is actually plural receivers o... View full abstract»

  • 3D Reconstruction of concave surface of the specular object with inter-reflection

    Publication Year: 2011, Page(s):11 - 15
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (953 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Active triangulation methods assume that points in a scene are only illuminated by the sources of light. However, this assumption is valid only when the light is reflected at one time from a single convex surface. Actual objects often include concave surfaces where points reflect light between themselves. In the presence of these inter-reflections, active triangulation methods produce erroneous es...

  • 3D Shape measurement of a transparent object with unknown refractive index by inverse ray tracing method

    Publication Year: 2011, Page(s):16 - 21
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (613 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    An optical measuring approach, by which to measure both the three-dimensional (3D) shape and the refractive index of a transparent object, was described. In order to obtain the 3D shape of a transparent object, contact-type sensors have been widely used in conventional approaches. However, the measurement accuracy of contact-type sensors is susceptible to various factors. The proposed measuring ap... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (686 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Although the optical touch shows some advantages, it has the drawback of difficulty in multi touch sensing. A new multi-layer touch panel, based on light-interruption-based approach, was proposed to realize the multiple touch position. The measurement approaches of the size and the shape of the longitudinal section of an object were also introduced. A prototype system of the touch panel was design... View full abstract»

    Automatic image annotation is the task of automatically assigning words to an image that describes the content of the image. _In this paper, an automatic image annotation and retrieval model is developed on the intensity invariant approach. The system applied various preprocessing steps such as Gray scale converting, Noise filtering for image enhancing. In image segmentation, the system segment pa... View full abstract»

    There are a lot of studies about shortest path algorithms. They are usually applied to graphs. However, there is little study of maze images by image processing techniques. In this paper, the shortest path algorithms, Dijkstra's and A* search algorithms, have been examined in maze images in terms of a search time. Furthermore, we have proposed a method to apply a thinning technique to maze images ... View full abstract»
