The ANTARES collaboration is building a deep sea neutrino telescope in the Mediterranean Sea. This detector will cover a sensitive area of typically 0:1 km and will be equipped with about 1000 optical modules. Each of these optical modules consists of a large area photomultiplier and its associated electronics housed in a pressure resistant glass sphere.(More)
VOT productions were compared for 5 Broca's aphasics and 5 Wernicke's aphasics to those for a group of 5 normal subjects of similar age. Phonetic errors were produced by both types of aphasic patients, but not by normal controls. Although previous studies have found significantly more phonetic errors in VOT production for Broca's aphasics, this study did(More)
A "ambulatory activity recorder" was developed, with 3 accelerometers and 3 magnetometers, to detect and qualify the elementary activities of a person, such as walking and transfers. The signal processing is explained, along with the preliminary results obtained on young and older healthy subjects. This work open the way to continuous and automatic(More)
In this paper, we describe our experience in designing real-time hardware/software systems for data acquisition and analysis applications in particle physics, which are based on a system-on-chip (SoC) approach. Modern field-programmable gate array (FPGA) devices with embedded reduced instruction set computing (RISC) processor cores, high-speed low voltage(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this project was to study the clinical feasibility of videophone-based communication between patients in their homes, and the care teams who work in the Home Hospitalization department (HH). METHODS This pilot study of videophone users compared them with a group of control patients also in HH. They came from either the adult,(More)
The level 2 trigger on charged particles (L2C) of the NA48 experiment features powerful capabilities for implementing complex triggering algorithms in real-time software. These algorithms may involve track reconstruction, vertex, invariant mass or transverse momentum computation, etc. After a brief outline of the L2C architecture, this paper describes the(More)
L’analyse automatique de la parole représente un intérêt et un potentiel important pour le maintien à domicile des personnes âgées. Elle requiert actuellement l’utilisation de microphones permettant l’enregistrement d’un signal sonore de qualité, nécessaire à la gestion complexe des spécificités acoustiques de la voix des personnes âgées. Toutefois, cette(More)
