    Much effort has been being devoted to studying the ATM technology for supporting multiservice high-speed communication networks. Since ATM adopts the statistical multiplexing technique, call admission control (CAC) is one of the most important issues under discussion. Until now, many CAC algorithms have calculated the required bandwidth of the connection using the parameters of a general source mo... View full abstract»

    Recently, a number of television broadcasters have tried to disseminate supplementary digital multimedia data in addition to the traditional audio-visual stream. The broadcast data need to be cached by a client system, to provide a reasonable response time for a user request. This paper proposes a cache management scheme for a client system in the data broadcasting environment. The proposed scheme... View full abstract»

    The ratio of the elderly population is increasing in Japan, while the effort available to care for the elderly is decreasing in society. Assist machines are needed to help the elderly in daily life or work, but sometimes the elderly person is reluctant in using these machines. The assist machines must be psychologically acceptable to the elderly. Taking the lift machine as an example, the elderly ... View full abstract»

    This paper presents new properties of the discrete morphological skeleton representation of binary images, for lossless binary image compression, that is based on these properties. We proposed a morphological recognition algorithm using threshold linear superposition theory to analyze the distribution of randomly spaced and oriented blob shaped particles. We recognized the size and position of ran... View full abstract»

    Photo-electric plethysmograph has been widely used to measure the cardiac pulse rate. However, the sensing device remains without any improvement, even though the opto-electronic technology has been highly refined recently. In order to get rid of low-temperature burn, which is often experienced in long-term, continuous applications, and to guarantee enough motion-free measurements, we develop a ne...

    Currently, the need for information retrieval systems that provide relevant information for specific users is emerging. However, the information retrieval systems of today are rather weak in the respect of reflecting the user's preferences and offering relevant ranked documents. Thus, we propose a method for filtering and document ranking using a user profile and latent structure analysis in order... View full abstract»

    Web-based simulation was introduced for conducting simulation experiments on the Internet and the Web. Due to the use of the Java language, Web-based simulation can have such characteristics as reusability, portability and the capability of execution on the Web. Most of the existing Web-based simulation tools have focused mainly on the development of runtime simulation libraries and mechanisms on ... View full abstract»

    In this study, the authors developed a method for disease detection using an artificial neural network and digital image processing of a chest radiograph. In a conventional physical examination radiologists check the chest image projected on a viewing box by a magnifying glass and determine what the disease is. The detection of disease on X-ray fluoroscopy images is tedious and time-consuming for ... View full abstract»

  • Enhancement of inter-frame coded images based on convex projection

    Publication Year: 1999, Page(s):1275 - 1278 vol.2
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (280 KB)

    We propose a degradation model for blocking artifacts in inter-frame coded images and a corresponding image restoration algorithm based on convex projection for reducing blocking artifacts. In contrast to still images, inter-frame coded moving images have two kinds of blocking artifacts. One occurs on the block boundary, which is caused by quantization of block discrete cosine transform (BDCT) coe... View full abstract»

    The digital TV era is just ahead of us. Digital TV will provide quality audio and video. Fortunately digital signal processing technologies have been fully developed. Digital TV will also give us interactivity. Users have experienced interactivity through Internet and they expect that the same interactivity can be experienced in the digital TV programs. Interactive TV can transform the dumb TV tha... View full abstract»

    Group-of-pictures (GoP) is a random access unit for VCR functions in the MPEG standard. Since storing and transmitting a video stream based on GoPs is efficient, it is practical to support fast scan functions based on GoPs. In this paper we present a dynamic scheduling scheme to support fast scan functions of a stored video. The proposed scheme constructs a set which consists of GoPs selected by a...

    We manufactured 0.22 μm triple well CMOS by using RTA and high energy ion implantation technology which was able to control minimum lateral diffusion and gave exact projection range. In order to forecast exactly the deep buried layer's projection range, we simulated by TRIM 95, and then we proceeded with RTA (rapid thermal annealing) process for dopant activation at 1050°C, 30s after ion im...

    Distillation is the most important separation process in the chemical and petrochemical industries. Constant product quality (smaller variances around set points) is important to the economics of the product columns. Product quality controllers are usually of the PI type. In this research, a rule-based scheme for adjusting the PI controllers is proposed for a binary distillation column. The scheme... View full abstract»

    Cache coherence protocols are important for operating a shared-memory multiprocessor system with efficiency and correctness. Cache coherence protocols have become increasingly complex because physical memory is logically distributed, so that it is difficult for programmers to understand the view of logical shared-memory systems. Since random testing and simulations are not enough to validate the c... View full abstract»

    The Virtual Internet Professor walks into the Virtual Classroom and interacts with Virtual Students. A serious bottleneck today with online learning is the absence of a human trainer/instructor/professor. Researchers have been striving to achieve realistic, real time animation and found to be beyond reach with today's technology. Achieving autonomous, realistic and real time whole human animation ...

    To support the distributed meeting scheduling, the autonomous software agent should perform organizational interaction in a multi-agent system. The focus of this paper is coordinating the conflict to rearrange a meeting. We suggested extended cooperation and a rescheduling strategy that be adapted sequentially according to the level of complexity. The constraints given from the user that are inspi...

    We propose an expanded network address translation (NAT) that is allowed to connect from an external network to an internal specific server (telnet, Web, mail, etc.) only by using a modification of the NAT table. Thus, a connection from an external network is prohibited except that connection while only one NAT IP is required. We propose the capacity of the VPN (virtual private network) using NAT ...

    Real-time image interpretation is required in many applications. Due to the computational complexity of the problem, dedicated architectures are needed for achieving real-time processing. In real-time applications, image frames are continuously fed to the computer vision system and three different levels of operations are performed on each image frame. Multi-layer systems, such as the pyramid arch... View full abstract»
