    We propose a novel methodology for reliable localization of an autonomous mobile robot navigating in an unstructured environment using noisy absolute measurements from its exteroceptive sensors. A new deterministic filtering technique is introduced, which is based on the recursive computation of a bounding set that is guaranteed to contain the true state of the system, despite process and observat...

    Two human-robot interactions, including a haptic interaction and a teleoperated interaction, are explored with a new exoskeleton-type masterarm, in which the electric brakes with the torque sensor beams are used for force reflection. In the haptic interaction with virtual environment, the masterarm is used as a haptic device and tested to examine how the resistant torque of the electric brake for ... View full abstract»

    This work presents the development of a daily imaging scheduling system for a low-orbit, Earth observation satellite. The daily imaging scheduling problem of satellite considers various imaging requests with different reward opportunities, changeover efforts between two consecutive imaging tasks, cloud-coverage effects, and the availability of the spacecraft resource. It belongs to a class of sing... View full abstract»

    A multiresolution color image segmentation approach is presented that incorporates the main principles of region-based segmentation and cluster-analysis approaches. The contribution of This work may be divided into two parts. In the first part, a multiscale dissimilarity measure is proposed that makes use of a feature transformation operation to measure the interregion relations with respect to th... View full abstract»

    We live in a society that depends on high-tech devices for assistance with everyday tasks, including everything from transportation to health care, communication, and entertainment. Tedious tactile input interfaces to these devices result in inefficient use of our time. Appropriate use of natural hand gestures will result in more efficient communication if the underlying meaning is understood. Ove... View full abstract»

    Many enterprise areas, such as marketing, variant design, group technology, and cellular manufacturing, require their wide variety of products to be organized into families, which are clusters of similar products. In this paper, we propose a similarity metric for finding the distance between existing products based on bills of materials (BOMs), a class of unordered trees. We show that existing edi...

  • Intelligent image prefetching for supporting radiologists' primary reading: a decision-rule inductive learning approach

    Publication Year: 2005, Page(s):261 - 274
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (800 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    The expanded role of radiology in clinical medicine and its emerging digital practice have made patient-image management a growing concern for health-care organizations. A fundamental aspect of patient-image management is to provide a radiologist with convenient access to prior images relevant to his or her reading of a recently taken radiological examination. For confirmation or evaluation purpos... View full abstract»

  • The necessary conditions of the scaling ratio in master-slave systems based on Human Difference limen of force sense

    Cited by:  Papers (6)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (736 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    In the use of master-slave systems designed ignoring human perception abilities, there are threats of missing or misunderstanding important information because the range of the displayed information may be unsuitable for the perception abilities of the operator. Therefore, we aim at incorporating human perception abilities into the necessary conditions for designing the scaling methods in master-s... View full abstract»

  • A novel system for tracking pedestrians using multiple single-row laser-range scanners

    We propose a novel system for tracking pedestrians in a wide and open area, such as a shopping mall and exhibition hall, using a number of single-row laser-range scanners (LD-A), which have a profiling rate of 10 Hz and a scanning angle of 270°. LD-As are set directly on the floor doing horizontal scanning at an elevation of about 20 cm above the ground, so that horizontal cross sections of th... View full abstract»

  • Granular mappings

    We are concerned with the granular representation of mappings (or experimental data) coming in the form R:R→[0,1] (for one-dimensional cases) and R:Rn→[0,1] (for multivariable cases) with R being a set of real numbers. As the name implies, a granular mapping is defined over information granules and maps them into a collection of granules expressed in some output space. The des... View full abstract»

  • Exhibiting the behavior of time-delayed systems via an extension to qualitative simulation

    This work presents an extension to qualitative simulation that enables a qualitative reasoning system to support variables that exhibit delayed reactions to their constraining functions. Information stored in the previous levels of the behavior tree is retrieved and used to constrain multiple delayed variables and to capture the time-delay behavior of the system. The extension is applicable to qua... View full abstract»

    Data warehouse systems typically designate downtime for view maintenance, ranging from tens of minutes to hours depending on the system size. We develop a multiagent system that achieves immediate incremental view maintenance (IIVM) for continuous updating of data warehouse views. We describe an IIVM system that processes updates as transactions are executed at the underlying data sources to elimi... View full abstract»
