This paper describes a vision-based system for blind spot detection in intelligent vehicle applications. A camera is mounted in the lateral mirror of a car with the intention of visually detecting cars that can not be perceived by the vehicle driver since they are located in the so-called blind spot. The detection of cars in the blind spot is carried out(More)
This paper describes pilot experiences of distance learning using videoconference over the public Integrated Services Digital Network (ISDN). Graduate and postgraduate courses of the Technical University of Madrid (Telecommunication Engineers) form the educational scenario chosen for the experiences. Several phases were defined to carry out the experiments,(More)
The Finite Element Method (FEM) is a computationally intensive scientific and engineering analysis tool that has diverse applications ranging from structural engineering to electromagnetic simulation. The trends in floating-point performance are moving in favor of Field-Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs), hence increasing interest has grown in the scientific(More)
High-performance reconfigurable computers (HPRCs) consisting of CPUs with application-specific FPGA accelerators traditionally use a low-level hardware-description language such as VHDL or Verilog to program the FP-GAs. The complexity of hardware design methodologies for FPGAs requires specialist engineering knowledge and presents a significant barrier to(More)
