An Event Reporting and Early-Warning Safety System based on the Internet of Things for Underground Coal Mines: A Case Study

ABSTRACT

Fatal accidents associated with underground coal mines require the implementation of high-level gas monitoring and miner’s localization approaches to promote underground safety and health. This study introduces a real-time monitoring, event-reporting and Continue reading

Workplace Posture Assessment and Biofeedback With Kinect

ABSTRACT

With the prevalence of computing, many workers today are confined to desk within an office. By sitting in these positions for long periods of time, workers are prone to develop one of many musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs), such as carpal tunnel syndrome. Continue reading

Perspective Distortion Modeling in Face Images and Object Tracking Library

ABSTRACT

In a first chapter we describe a method to model perspective distortion as a one- parameter family of warping functions. This can be used to mitigate its effects on visual recognition, or interactively manipulate the perceived personality. The warps are Continue reading

Monitoring Security of Networked Control Systems: It’s the Physics

ABSTRACT

Of today’s many physical systems that impact or are impacted by networked computers, computerized control systems represent a class of applications of both great importance and national interest. A growing trend, motivated by economic and design Continue reading

Algorithms and Representations for Visual Recognition

ABSTRACT

We address various issues in learning and representation of visual object categories. A key component of many state of the art object detection and image recognition systems, is the image classifier. We first show that a large number of classifiers used in Continue reading

Design, Modeling and Control of Steering and Braking for an Urban Electric Vehicle

ABSTRACT

This report presents the results of a scientific exchange with Programme Praxitele of the Institute National de Recherche en Informatique et en Automatique (INRIA) in Rocquencourt, France. The Praxitele Program provides a combination of public Continue reading

Parallel Modeling of Fish Interaction

ABSTRACT

This paper summarizes work on a parallel algorithm for an interacting particle model, derived from the model by Czirok, Vicsek, et. al. Our model is particularly geared toward simulating the behavior of fish in large shoals. In this paper, the back-ground Continue reading

Attention Modeling for Face Recognition via Deep Learning

ABSTRACT

Face recognition is an important area of research in cognitive science and machine learning. This is the first paper utilizing deep learning techniques to model human’s attention for face recognition. In our attention model based on bilinear deep Continue reading
