    In micromanipulation, the size of the manipulated object is usually much less than 1 mm in a single dimension, in which case gravitational and inertial forces are no longer dominant. This leads to problems (for manipulation through force) that are not evident in the macroworld, and for which the macroworld techniques alone may not be adequate to provide solutions. This paper surveys critical issue... View full abstract»

    This paper proposes a new control approach for a robotic walking support system to adapt a user's controlling characteristic. The control approach will be implemented by changing the kinematic structure of the robotic walking support system based on a variable center of rotation. This new control approach aims to help users who have difficulties in controlling their walking support system. In this... View full abstract»

  • Survey of Data Mining Approaches to User Modeling for Adaptive Hypermedia

    Publication Year: 2006, Page(s):734 - 749
    Cited by:  Papers (9)

    The ability of an adaptive hypermedia system to create tailored environments depends mainly on the amount and accuracy of information stored in each user model. Some of the difficulties that user modeling faces are the amount of data available to create user models, the adequacy of the data, the noise within that data, and the necessity of capturing the imprecise nature of human behavior. Data min... View full abstract»

    X-ray scanners are considered one of the best technologies for detecting illicit materials because of their ability to characterize a material at the molecular and atomic levels, and also because of their relatively inexpensive cost. Using X-ray technology, it is possible to determine a material's density and effective atomic number, or Zeff -related information. In theory, an illicit m... View full abstract»

    The application of a neuro-fuzzy (NF) controller to moving picture expert group (MPEG-2) video transmission over a Bluetooth asynchronous connectionless (ACL) is presented in this paper. MPEG variable bit rate (VBR) data sources experience unpredictability, long delay, and excessive loss, due to sudden variations in bit rate. Therefore, it is practically impossible to transmit MPEG-2 VBR video sou... View full abstract»

    A rapid increase in the amount of image data and the inefficiency of traditional text-based image retrieval systems have served to make content-based image retrieval an active research field. It is crucial to effectively discover users' concept patterns through an acquired understanding of the subjective role played by humans in the retrieval process for such systems. A learning and retrieval fram... View full abstract»

    This paper describes a series of linear and nonlinear pseudocoloring maps designed and applied to single energy X-ray luggage scans to assist airport screeners in identifying and detecting threat items, particularly hard to see low-density weapons in luggage. Considerations of the psychological and physiological processing involved in the human perception of color as well as the effects of using v... View full abstract»

  • Geometrical Error Modeling and Compensation Using Neural Networks

    This paper describes an approach based on neural networks (NNs) for geometrical error modeling and compensation for precision motion systems. A laser interferometer is used to obtain the systematic error measurements of the geometrical errors, based on which an error model may be constructed and, consequently, a model-based compensation may be incorporated in the motion-control system. NNs are use... View full abstract»

    In modern military battlefield environments, the availability of data and information has increased exponentially. Through information and communications technology, individuals and teams can access real-time data about almost any aspect of their current conflict situation, but this instantaneous availability of information to individuals and teams in these conflict situations does not always resu...
