In this study, we have introduced an open-source program that can be used for the detection and analysis of different waves in the ECG signal. The effect of noise is first reduced by applying an adaptive least-squares method to the signal using a sliding window. The maximums and minimums of the signal are determined, and the R-waves are then detected using(More)
Nowadays, car following models, as the most popular microscopic traffic flow modeling, are increasingly being used by transportation experts to evaluate new Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) applications. This paper presents a car-following model that was developed using an adaptive neuro fuzzy inference system (ANFIS) to simulate and predict the(More)
The control of car following is essential to its safety and its operational efficiency. For this purpose, this paper builds a linear, continuous and time-delay model of car following. And then, presents a controller based on an adaptive network fuzzy inference system (ANFIS) for the car-following collision avoidance system to adaptively control the speed of(More)
Reliable event detection at the sink is based on collective information provided by source nodes and not on any individual report. Reliable data gathering and transmission are important in wireless sensor networks. While node redundancy in WSNs, increases the fault tolerance, no guarantees on reliability levels can be assured. Furthermore, the frequent node(More)
In this study, a mathematical model is developed based on algebraic equations which is capable of generating artificially normal events of electrocardiogram (ECG) signals such as P-wave, QRS complex, and T-wave. This model can also be implemented for the simulation of abnormal phenomena of electrocardio-graphic signals such as ST-segment episodes (i.e.(More)
BACKGROUND Extracts of milk thistle (MT), Silybum marianum, have been used as medical remedies since the time of ancient Greece. Methotrexate is a potentially hepatotxic drug. OBJECTIVES To clarify the hepatoprotective effects of MT on methotrexate. MATERIALS AND METHODS From January 2010 to April 2010, 30 male rats were recruited into three 10-rat(More)
In this study, a simple mathematical-statistical based metric called Multiple Higher Order Moments (MHOM) is introduced enabling the electrocardiogram (ECG) detection-delineation algorithm to yield acceptable results in the cases of ambulatory holter ECG including strong noise, motion artifacts, and severe arrhythmia(s). In the MHOM measure, important(More)
The aim of this study is to detect acute hypotensive episodes (AHE) and mean arterial pressure dropping regimes (MAPDRs) using electrocardiographic (ECG) signals and arterial blood pressure waveforms. To meet this end, the QRS complexes and end-systolic end-diastolic pulses are first extracted using two innovative modified Hilbert transform-based(More)
