    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (805 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Advances in team methodologies have resulted in the reconfiguration of older buildings towards physical open plan seating. Many Building Management Systems (BMS) control actuators based on the temperature in the zone they serve. There is limited consideration of the effect on ambient temperature of such actions. This work proposes a hierarchical directed artificial neural network which optimises a... View full abstract»

    Biometric Authentication Systems (BAS) have several security benefits over traditional password and token authentication including an inherent difficulty to copy, clone and share or distribute authentication credentials (biometric traits). Spoofing or presentation attack remains a major weakness of biometric systems and tackling it at the trait level is still challenging with several different app... View full abstract»

    Around the world, visually impaired individuals struggle with knowing where they are and how to move inside rooms and buildings safely. We have conducted a survey of more than 65 visually impaired individuals to confirm our proposed solution, which has been developed using an Android application and some sensors. This paper presents the methodology behind the Intelligent Blind Cane and demonstrate... View full abstract»

    Automatic face recognition is a well researched area, but still many of the current face recognition methods sensitive to lighting and pose changes. In this paper we introduce a novel facial feature representation to enhance the robustness of face recognition against pose and illumination changes. Here we combined Gabor wavelets and Cross Lo- cal Binary Patterns for facial feature representation. ... View full abstract»

    Minimizing travel time is critical for the successful operation of emergency vehicles. Preemption can significantly help emergency vehicles reach the intended destination faster. Majority of the current studies focus on minimizing and/or eliminating delays for EVs and do not consider the negative impacts of preemption on urban traffic. One primary negative impact is extended delays for non-EV traf... View full abstract»

    An optical character recognition (OCR) system recognizes either printed or handwritten text. Hence it is required to seperate machine printed text from handwritten text in scanned documents before feeding it to a OCR system. We can discriminate these two types of text word images by their visual impression and shape structures. The intensity values distribution features gives us the visual impress... View full abstract»

    Visible light face recognition has been well researched but still its performance is limited by varying illumination conditions. Illumination conditions are major source of the uncertainty in face recognition systems performance when it is used in outdoor setting. In order to augment the performance of visible light face recognition system's performance, infrared facial images as a new modality ha... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1536 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    A key challenge in soft robotics is controlling the large deformation experienced as a result of high compliance nature of soft robots. In this work, a software control strategy for regulating the amount of internal positive and negative air pressure inside pneumatic soft robots is presented. Since the air pressure has a direct effect on the amount of deformation, the position of the robot is cont... View full abstract»

    Natural frequencies and modal shapes simulated in FE (Finite Element) environments are not simple to validate with physical testing or calculous, especially when relating to complex shaped components. In this paper a Laser Doppler Vibrometer (LDV) system is utilized as an aid in validating the natural frequencies, modes and mode shapes computed from an FEA model of a motorcycle swing arm.

    The goal of this article is to inform English-speaking computer mathematicians about some optimization technique results obtained in publications [1-3]. For the class of matrix gradient methods a new concept of relaxation function is suggested. This concept allows to evaluate an effectiveness of each gradient optimization procedure, and to synthesize new methods for special classes of non-convex o... View full abstract»

    This paper will address the difference between mathematical models and simulation models of a particular simulation environment for Dynamic Hybrid Systems (DHS). From the mathematical point of view, there are different environments available to introduce models for DHS. The simulation environments offer a more restricted set of modelling opportunities. In this contribution the difference of the ma... View full abstract»
