The extent of the change in salivary protein characteristics after repeated stimulations was shown to be correlated to differences in perceived astringency. Salivary characteristics of 77 subjects were compared after masticatory (S1) and taste/masticatory (S2) stimulations. The variations (S2 minus S1) of protein concentration and saliva haze-forming(More)
An open ITS platform combining interactive satellite services with other communication channels is being developed and evaluated in field trials within the SafeTRIP project. Prototyping and in-field validation of a novel waveform for messaging return channel over satellite for land mobile is an important objective of the project. The overall system(More)
Astringency sensation is due to interactions between salivary proteins and phenols and is based on an increased-friction mechanism. Modifications to the profile of salivary proteins and their concentration could affect tannin/protein reactions and hence the intensity of perceived astringency. Salivary characteristics of 65 subjects were compared after(More)
Sensory responses greatly vary between individuals, and individual sensory experiences influence eating behaviour. Three groups responding differently to phenolic astringent stimuli (Low Responding, LR, n=20, Medium Responding, MR, n=37 and High Responding, HR, n=20) were identified from a population of 77 subjects, based on the maintenance vs fluctuation(More)
In this paper we present experimental results of the ETSI S-MIM (S-band Mobile Interactive Multimedia) protocol, tested for the first time over a real GEO satellite (EUTELSAT 10A) and through a fully compliant ground platform. In particular, the employed radio interface implements the Part 3 of the standard, i.e. the asynchronous access protocol, especially(More)
SUMMARY An intelligent transport system open platform integrating the S-band Mobile Interactive Multimedia messaging return channel protocol over satellite (based on Enhanced Spread Spectrum Aloha) has been developed and tested under real environment conditions within the framework of SafeTRIP, an FP7 EU-funded project. This paper presents the first field(More)
