    This paper presents a new solution for a field-reconfigurable modular micro mobile robot. The robot design encompasses some new attributes. It is small enough that it can be used for searching in tight spaces, where humans cannot easily reach and the robots can be adapted to many situations by attaching extra modules to enhance the robot's capabilities. The robot is auto-reconfiguring, that is whe... View full abstract»

    Cycloid reducers compared with classical reducers have low axial and radial gauge, high transmission ratio, and a better reliability. Cycloid gearing roller, through its qualities, has an important role in modern mechanical transmissions. The difference between numbers of teeth of the cycloid gear roller can be equal to 1 (|z1 - z2| >;= 1), without risk of interference, as a result, can be obta... View full abstract»

    This paper proposes a robust video watermarking for H.264/AVC using block polarity and AC correlation schemes. In the proposed method, the intra frames are used for watermarking embedding and protection. Block polarity is obtained using the nonzero quantized DC coefficient in each integer DCT block. Then, the selective block polarity of DCT block is used to perform the Intra prediction modes for l... View full abstract»

    In the paper, we proposed a gender recognition scheme based on color information. The proposed gender recognition scheme is comprised of four parts: face detection, eye detection, feature extraction, and gender classifier. To evaluate the proposed scheme, a large number of images containing different-size faces are captured by using low-cost web cam. Experimental results show that our proposed sch...

    C-means had been used for data clustering problems for recently years. However, if it uses the non-robust objective function of FCM (Fuzzy C-Means), we will get poor result if data corrupted because some noises. To improve these problems, this paper make effective objective functions of Fuzzy C-means which named MVDFCM (Mean Variable Distance Fuzzy C-means). The method is with center learning meth...
