    This paper presents an efficient lifting-based algorithm for the computation of Daubechies-4 (D4) and Daubechies-6 (D6) wavelet transforms using an algebraic integer quantization (AIQ) technique. The transform filter coefficients are first mapped by algebraic integers, and then quantized using a subband coding algorithm. The performance of the algorithm is assessed by using several benchmark image... View full abstract»

    The ubiquitous nature of Bluetooth equipped devices has made it opportunistic to scavenge information that can be repurposed for applications other than initially intended. One such opportunity is in vehicular traffic monitoring, whereby sampling of Bluetooth radios serve as proxies for vehicles and consequently for traffic density and flow. This paper discusses a complete data collection system d... View full abstract»

    This paper proposes a novel control technique to improve the power factor over a wide range of wind speeds in a wind energy conversion system (WECS) using a current source inverter (CSI) and an electrically excited synchronous generator. The system consists of diode rectifier on the generator side, while a pulsewidth modulated CSI is on the grid side. In the proposed control scheme, the generator ... View full abstract»

    This paper presents a nonlinear model predictive control algorithm for online motion planning and tracking of an omnidirectional autonomous robot. The formalism is based on a Hamiltonian minimization to optimize a control path as evaluated by a cost function. This minimization is constrained by a nonlinear plant model, which confines the solution space to those paths which are physically feasible.... View full abstract»

    Granular association rule mining is a new relational data mining approach to reveal patterns hidden in multiple tables. Recently, granular association rules have been proposed for cold-start recommendation, where a customer or a product has just entered the system. The current research considers only nominal data. In this paper, we study the impact of discretization approaches on mining semantical... View full abstract»

  • Novel Visual Cryptography Schemes Without Pixel Expansion for Halftone Images

    Visual cryptography (VC) is a secret-sharing scheme which uses images distributed as shares such that, when the shares are superimposed, a hidden secret image is revealed. While VC was developed for application to binary images, and is inherently based on binary logical operations, it can be applied to grayscale images through their halftone representations. In this paper, we present a new method ... View full abstract»
