This paper considers the problem of detecting elliptical curves using Hough transform (HT) methods. Storage and efficiency problems are overcome by decomposing the problem into two stages. The first stage uses a novel constraint as the basis for a Hough transform to detect the ellipse centre while the second stage finds the remaining parameters using a(More)
The objective of this paper is to investigate a number of circle detection methods which are based on variations of the Hough Transform. The methods considered include the standard Hough Transform, the Fast Hough Transform of Li et al, two space saving approaches which are bused on those devised by Gerig and Klein and a twostage method. We experimentally(More)
A novel EPSP synthase inhibitor 4 has been designed and synthesized to probe the configurational details of glyphosate recognition in its herbicidal ternary complex with enzyme and shikimate 3-phosphate (S3P). A kinetic evaluation of the new 3-dephospho analog 12, as well as calorimetric and (31)P NMR spectroscopic studies of enzyme-bound 4, now provides a(More)
High-sensitivity differential scanning calorimetry has been used to study the phase transition of cell wall preparations of the elongating and mature regions of soybean hypocotyls and of celery epidermis and collenchyma strands. A step-like transition believed to be glass transition was observed in walls isolated from the elongating region of soybean(More)
We consider the problem of detecting elliptical curves using Hough Transform methods. Storage and efficiency problems are overcome by decomposing the problem into two stages. The first stage uses a novel constraint as the basis for a Hough Transform to detect the ellipse center while the second stage finds the remaining parameters using a simple but(More)
Isothermal titration calorimetry measurements are reported which give important new binding constant (Kd) information for various substrate and inhibitor complexes of Escherichia coli EPSP synthase (EPSPS). The validity of this technique was first verified by determining Kd's for the known binary complex with the substrate, shikimate 3-phosphate (S3P), as(More)
Using a powered wheelchair (PW) is a complex task requiring advanced perceptual and motor control skills. Unfortunately, PW incidents and accidents are not uncommon and their consequences can be serious. The objective of this paper is to develop technological tools that can be used to characterize a wheelchair user's driving behavior under various settings.(More)
The thermal denaturation of native Escherichia coli 5-enolpyruvoyl shikimate-3-phosphate (EPSP) synthase, its binary complex with shikimate-3-phosphate (S3P) and its ternary complex with S3P and glyphosate have been studied using highly-sensitive differential scanning calorimetry (DSC). All observed transitions are strongly scanning-rate-dependent and(More)
Task analysis is one of the essential components of activity analysis. Procedural task analysis involves breaking down an activity into a sequence of steps. Directions are the sequence of steps resulting from the task analysis (i.e., the product of the task analysis). Directions become a guide for caregivers or trainers use in teaching clients a specific(More)
