This paper proposes a framework for constructing and training a radial basis function (RBF) neural network. For this purpose, a sequential learning algorithm is presented to adapt the structure of the network, in which it is possible to create a new hidden unit and also to detect and remove inactive units. The structure of the Gaussian functions is modi"ed(More)
—A novel approach to achieve real-time global learning in fuzzy controllers is proposed. Both the rule consequents and the membership functions defined in the premises of the fuzzy rules are tuned using a one-step algorithm, which is capable of controlling nonlinear plants with no prior offline training. Direct control is achieved by means of two auxiliary(More)
We propose a semi-automatic HW/SW codesign flow for low-power and low-cost Neuro-Fuzzy embedded systems. Applications range from fast prototyping of embedded systems to high-speed simulation of Simulink models and rapid design of Neuro-Fuzzy devices. The proposed codesign flow works with different technologies and architectures (namely, software, digital(More)
This paper describes a tool devised for automatic design of bioinspired visual processing models using reconfigurable digital hardware. The whole system is indicated for the analysis of vision models, especially those with real–time requirements. We achieve a synthesizable FPGA/ASIC design starting from a high level description of a retina, which is made(More)
Computational simulations of the retina have led to valuable insights about the biophysics of its neuronal activity and processing principles. A great number of retina models have been proposed to reproduce the behavioral diversity of the different visual processing pathways. While many of these models share common computational stages, previous efforts(More)
The purpose of the study was to improve the visual functioning of people with restriction in contrast sensitivity (CS), such as retinitis pigmentosa (RP), by means of a visual training program. Twenty-six volunteers with RP participated, distributed in two groups: 15 who made up the experimental group (who received the training program) and 11 who(More)
Due to the demand for cellular wireless services, recent interests are in techniques, which can improve the capacity of CDMA systems. On such technique is multiuser detection. Multiuser Detection (MUD) is the intelligent estimation/demodulation of transmitted bits in the presence of Multiple Access Interference (MAI). In this paper, we will show the role of(More)
