The estimation of protein secondary structure from circular dichroism spectra is described by a multivariate linear model with noise (Gauss-Markoff model). With this formalism the adequacy of the linear model is investigated, paying special attention to the estimation of the error in the secondary structure estimates. It is shown that the linear model is(More)
An algorithm is proposed for skeletonization of 3-D images. The criterion to preserve connectivity is given in two versions: global and local. The latter allows local decisions in the erosion process. A table of the decisions for all possible configurations is given in this paper. The algorithm using this table can be directly implemented both on general(More)
This paper describes the scoring policy used by the agents of our simulation robot soccer team. In a given situation this policy enables an agent to determine the best shooting point in the goal, together with an associated probability of scoring when the ball is shot to this point. The ball motion can be regarded as a geometrically constrained(More)
— A novel robust visual-odometry technique, called EM-SE(3) is presented and compared against using the random sample consensus (RANSAC) for ego-motion estimation. In this contribution, stereo-vision is used to generate a number of minimal-set motion hypothesis. By using EM-SE(3), which involves expectation maximization on a local linearization of the(More)
Environmental monitoring and emergency response projects in urban-industrial areas increasingly rely on efficient collaboration between experts in control rooms and at incident locations, and citizens who live or work in the area. In the video accompanying this abstract we present a system that uses distributed sensor technology, Bayesian decision tools,(More)
Applying multi-agent systems in real world scenarios requires several essential research questions to be answered. Agents have to perceive their environment in order to take useful actions. In a multi-agent system this results in a distributed perception of partial information , which has to be fused. Based on the perceived environment the agents have to(More)
