The objective of this book is to present systematic methods for achieving stable , agile and efficient locomotion in bipedal robots. The fundamental principles presented here can be used to improve the control of existing robots and provide guidelines for improving the mechanical design of future robots. The book also contributes to the emerging control(More)
In this paper, the authors have presented a smartphone based robust heart rate measurement system. The system requires the user to place the tip of his/her index finger on the lens of a smart phone camera, while the flash is on.

Since smartphones have become the most pervasive computing platform today, it is only a logical extension to use the same in healthcare domain for(More)
Rate of vehicular horn is an important parameter to estimate the traffic congestion of a street in an urban area in developing nations. In this paper we propose a participatory sensing based approach for traffic condition monitoring using horn detection employing inbuilt sensors of smart phones. Feature extraction is performed on the audio captured in(More)
