Disruptive technologies have the potential to change markets dramatically. The switch from internal combustion engines to electrical engines is such a change. But electric engines for vehicles are only the catalyst for the real change. Most significantly, the architecture and role of information and communication technology (ICT) will change for the vehicle(More)
Odometry is important for autonomous vehicle in scenarios where GPS is either unavailable or only intermittently available. However, in a large scale environment, it often generalizes unbounded cumulative error when the vehicle unconsciously moves. This paper analyzes how the cumulative error grows according to the noisy relative measurements. An unbounded(More)
Three-dimensional (3D) planning is becoming a more commonly used tool in maxillofacial surgery. At first used only virtually, 3D planning now also enables the creation of useful intraoperative aids such as cutting guides, which decrease the operative difficulty. In our center, we have used 3D planning in various domains of facial surgery and have(More)
This paper describes a robust approach which improves the precision of vehicle localization in complex urban environments by fusing data from GPS, gyroscope and velocity sensors. In this method, we apply Kalman filter to estimate the position of the vehicle. Compared with other fusion based localization approaches, we process the data in a public coordinate(More)
Recent developments in centralized ICT architectures have realized the abstraction of hardware and communications functionality into software within for of highly assisted and autonomous vehicles. This development requires a data-centric approach to the integration and fusion of sensory information within the vehicle. We address this requirement through(More)
OBJECTIVE Activity energy expenditure (EE) plays an important role in healthcare, therefore, accurate EE measures are required. Currently available reference EE acquisition methods, such as doubly labeled water and indirect calorimetry, are complex, expensive, uncomfortable, and/or difficult to apply on real time. To overcome these drawbacks, the goal of(More)
