    This paper concerns with a new estimation filter with a finite impulse response (FIR) structure under a least squares (LS) criterion using a forgetting factor. This filter will be called the forgetting least squares estimation (FLSE) FIR filter. The proposed FLSE FIR filter does not require information of the noise covariances as well as the initial state. It will be shown that, in particular case... View full abstract»

    It is important for target tracking to decide “gatesize” in clutter environment. When the detection probability is equal to 1.0, the conventional gatesize has a problem that the gatesize becomes infinite. Another problem is that usually the same values have been employed for both the gatesize of a tracking radar and that of a search radar, although such practice has not been verified. ...

    Presents a vehicle tracking method which fuses data from an image sensor and radar installed on the roadside. The image sensor is widely used for road monitoring systems, but it is difficult to detect a vehicle in poor visibility. On the other hand, millimeter waves are less attenuated by fog, rain and snow. Consequently, it is possible to detect vehicles in all weather by using radar together wit... View full abstract»

In this paper, we attempt to clarify the mechanism of such autonomy of biological systems by developing the adaptation model of Physarum, which consists of endoplasmic, ectoplasmic and intermediate layers. In an ectoplasmic layer, the chemical system generates a s... View full abstract»

    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (324 KB)

    Today's space vehicle structures are composed of large quantities of liquid fuel. Fuel-slosh occurs when fuel in a partially filled tank sloshes around inside the tank in response to vehicle acceleration. Fuel-slosh can be a severe problem in space vehicle stability and control if the fuel modes of motion couple significantly with the space vehicle's normal modes of motion. We propose a determinat...

    We studied chemotactical behavior of an amoeboid multinuclear cell, Physarum polycephalum plasmodium. We experimentally observed that the small parts within a single organism showed different reactions under rather complex situations, unless the organism has no differentiation, and some adaptable behaviors of the individual have resulted from a temporary inadequate reaction of such a local part.
