This study presents an effective method for detecting vehicles in front of the camera-assisted car during nighttime driving. The proposed method detects vehicles based on detecting and locating vehicle headlights and taillights using techniques of image segmentation and pattern analysis. First, to effectively extract bright objects of interest, a(More)
Thousands of people are killed or injured in the vehicle accidents which are mostly caused by the carelessness of humans. Therefore, if there exists a warning system which can notify the driver of the approaching vehicles and the lane departure, the terrible tragedies can be greatly avoided. Moreover, if the driving status, such as the situation around the(More)
Estrogen has various regulatory functions in the growth, development, and differentiation of the female urogenital system. This study investigated the roles of ERβ in stress urinary incontinence (SUI). Wild-type (ERβ(+/+)) and knockout (ERβ(-/-)) female mice were generated (aged 6-8 weeks, n = 6) and urethral function and protein expression were measured.(More)
1. Mass spectrometry and proteomics Proteomics (large-scale analysis of proteins) can directly reflect and characterize the biological function, pathways, activities and subcellular distributions, and thus is most promising and applicable in biomedicine [1]. Mass spectrometry (MS) has become a mainstream and dominant analytic tool for studying proteomics(More)
This paper proposes an effective blind spot warning system (BSWS) for daytime and night-time conditions. The proposed BSWS includes camera models of a dynamic calibration and blind spot detection (BSD) algorithms for the daytime and nighttime. Under daytime conditions , the proposed system presents the Horizontal Edge and Shadow Composite Region (HESCR)(More)
Urinary nucleosides are associated with many types of cancer. In this study, six targeted urinary nucleosides, namely adenosine, cytidine, 3-methylcytidine, 1-methyladenosine, inosine, and 2-deoxyguanosine, were chosen to evaluate their role as biomarkers of four different types of cancer: lung cancer, gastric cancer, colon cancer, and breast cancer.
