This paper proposes an architecture of the wireless monitoring system for the real-time monitoring of the orthopedic implants, which monitors the implant duty cycle, detects abnormal asymmetry, high amounts of force, and other conditions of the orthopedic implants. Data for diagnosis are communicated wirelessly by the radio-frequency (RF) signal between the(More)
Conventional methods for Aerosol Optical Depth (AOD) retrieval are limited to areas with low reflectance such as water or vegetated areas because the satellite signals from the aerosols in these areas are more obvious than those in areas with higher reflectance such as urban and sandy areas. Land Surface Reflectance (LSR) is the key parameter that must be(More)
Identifying chemical-disease relations (CDR) from biomedical literature could improve chemical safety and toxicity studies. This article proposes a novel syntactic and semantic information exploitation method for CDR extraction. The proposed method consists of a feature-based model, a tree kernel-based model and a neural network model. The feature-based(More)
As .NET and COM component depend on different internal structure, so they are naturally incompatible. However, many present application programs still depend on the intermediate layer services provided by COM component. This paper analyzes the operation principles of .NETand COM component as well as their differences, and studies how to make use of the(More)
A number of biological systems can be modelled by Markov chains. Recently, there has been an increasing concern about when biological systems modelled by Markov chains will perform a dynamic phenomenon called overshoot. In this study, the authors found that the steady-state behaviour of the system will have a great effect on the occurrence of overshoot.(More)
This paper proposes DD-Stream, a framework for density-based clustering stream data. The algorithm adopts a density decaying technique to capture the evolving data stream and extracts the boundary point of grid by the DCQ-means algorithm. Our method resolving the problem of evolving automatic clustering of real-time data streams, cannot only find arbitrary(More)
In this paper, we perform a complete analysis of the kinetic behavior of the general modifier mechanism of Botts and Morales in both equilibrium steady states and non-equilibrium steady states (NESS). Enlightened by the non-equilibrium theory of Markov chains, we introduce the net flux into discussion and acquire an expression of the rate of product(More)
A low power IC of the Wireless Monitoring System of the Orthopedic Implants (WMSoOI) is put forth. The analog-digital mix-mode system monitors the implant duty cycle, detects abnormal asymmetry, wear, and high amounts of force, and other conditions of the orthopedic implants. Data for diagnosis is communicated wirelessly between the embedded chip (inside(More)
Battery lifetime has been the stumbling block for many power-critical or maintenance-free real-time embedded applications, such as wireless sensors and orthopedic implants. Thus a piezoelectric material that could convert human motion into electrical energy provides a very attractive solution for clinical implants. In this work, we analyze the power(More)
