Many critical ecological issues require the analysis of large spatial point data sets - for example, modelling species distributions, abundance and spread from survey data. But modelling spatial relationships, especially in large point data sets, presents major computational challenges. We use a novel Bayesian hierarchical statistical approach, 'spatial(More)
In Cartesian coordinate systems, the angular separation-based star identification algorithms involve much trigonometric function computing. That delays the algorithm process. As in a polar coordinate system, the coordinates are denoted by angular values, it is potential to speed up the star identification process by adopting a polar coordinate system. An(More)
SIFT (Scale Invariant Feature Transform) is one of most popular approach for feature detection and matching. Many parallelized algorithms have been proposed to accelerate SIFT to apply into real-time systems. This paper divides the researches into three different categories, that is, optimizing parallel algorithms based on general purpose multi-core(More)
Plenoptic cameras generally employ a microlens array positioned between the main lens and the image sensor to capture the three-dimensional target radiation in the visible range. Because the focal length of common refractive or diffractive microlenses is fixed, the depth of field (DOF) is limited so as to restrict their imaging capability. In this paper, we(More)
Traditional star identification algorithms use the angular separations as the identification feature, but the similar matches resulting from similar triangles degrade the identification efficiency and delay the process. To enhance the performances of the star identification algorithm, the information of the star magnitudes in star images is used to add a(More)
An electrically tunable infrared (IR) filter based on the liquid crystal (LC) Fabry-Perot (FP) key structure, which works in the wavelength range from 5.5 to 12 μm, is designed and fabricated successfully. Both planar reflective mirrors with a very high reflectivity of ∼95%, which are shaped by depositing a layer of aluminum (Al) film over one side of a(More)
Two of the most significant factors in the success of todaypsilas system-on-chip (SoC) designs are the ability to deliver efficient access to off-chip high speed memory and the ability to be compatible with several different interface-timings of several different sorts of memories. This paper introduces a novel general external memory interface (GEMI)(More)
We present a new liquid crystal (LC) microlens structure having ommatidia function, which consists of the overlapped patterned electrode layers. Each electrode layer has a circular electrode array with a different size. Two electrode layers are deposited on the surface of a glass substrate and insulated by thin SiO₂ coating, which act as controlling(More)
