A novel image processing-based system for turbidity measurement in domestic and industrial wastewater
(IWA Publishing, 2018-01-19)
Wastewater treatment facilities are continually challenged to meet both environmental regulations and reduce running costs (particularly energy and staffing costs). Improving the efficiency of operational monitoring at ...
Total variation-based dense depth from multicamera array
(Society of Photo-optical Instrumentation Engineers (SPIE), 2018-05-20)
Multicamera arrays are increasingly employed in both consumer and industrial applications, and various passive techniques are documented to estimate depth from such camera arrays. Current depth estimation methods provide ...
Semiparallel deep neural network hybrid architecture: first application on depth from monocular camera
(Society of Photo-optical Instrumentation Engineers (SPIE), 2018-08-07)
Deep neural networks have been applied to a wide range of problems in recent years. Convolutional neural network is applied to the problem of determining the depth from a single camera image (monocular depth). Eight different ...
Pushing the AI envelope: merging deep networks to accelerate edge artificial intelligence in consumer electronics devices and systems
Deep neural networks (DNNs) are widely used by both academic and industry researchers to solve many long-standing problems in machine learning. There has been such a growth of research in this field, and it has been applied ...
Application of preconditioned alternating direction method of multipliers in depth from focal stack
(Society of Photo-optical Instrumentation Engineers (SPIE), 2018-04-06)
Postcapture refocusing effect in smartphone cameras is achievable using focal stacks. However, the accuracy of this effect is totally dependent on the combination of the depth layers in the stack. The accuracy of the ...
Advanced Material Catheter (AMCath), a minimally invasive endocardial catheter for the delivery of fast-gelling covalently cross-linked hyaluronic acid hydrogels
(SAGE Publications, 2018-10-25)
Injectable hydrogels that aim to mechanically stabilise the weakened left ventricle wall to restore cardiac function or to deliver stem cells in cardiac regenerative therapy have shown promising data. However, the clinical ...
The influence of crown and stem characteristics on timber quality in softwoods
The relationships between several crown and tree properties and timber quality were examined on three softwood species: Douglas-fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii (Mirb.) Franco), Norway spruce (Picea abies (L.) H. Karst) and Sitka ...
An evaluation into the limitations and emerging trends of Six Sigma: an empirical study
Purpose: The purpose of this paper is to evaluate the limitations and emerging trends of Six Sigma through an empirical study. Six Sigma is one of the most powerful business process improvement strategies used by numerous ...
