Collision avoidance is one of the important safety key operations that needs attention in the navigation system of an autonomous robot. In this paper, a Behavioural Bayesian Network approach is proposed as a collision avoidance strategy for autonomous robots in an unstructured environment with static obstacles. In our approach, an unstructured environment(More)
This research examines whether the integration of facial and fingerprint biometrics can improve the performance in financial infrastructure security such as ATM protection. Fingerprint biometrics consider distorted and misaligned fingerprints caused by environmental noise such as oil, wrinkles, dry skin, dirt and displacement of the query fingerprint with(More)
The wide adoption of underground mining has contributed immensely to the rapid growth of the countries’ economy, job creation, gross domestic product, fixed capital formation, gross investment and merchandise exports on an enormous global scale. At the same time, the tedious and dangerous nature of underground mining makes it vulnerable to mine accidents(More)
Dynamic Bayesian networks (DBNs) are temporal probabilistic models for reasoning over time which are rapidly gaining popularity in modern Artificial Intelligence (AI) for planning. A number of Hidden Markov Model (HMM) representations of dynamic Bayesian networks with different characteristics have been developed. However, the varieties of DBNs have(More)
Many cloud-based e-commerce stores aim to attract and retain customers in order to be competitive. However, they are all faced with a challenge regarding gaining and maintaining consumer trust in a volatile cloud-based e-commerce environment where risks pertaining to information security, privacy of information and inadequate monitoring of compliance to(More)
The mining industry is constantly faced with the dual needs for safety and improved productivity. It is widely recognized that robots can play a significant role in pre-disaster (pre-emption) and post-disaster (recovery) mine rescue operations. This would inevitably enhance productivity and greatly reduce human exposure to dangerous underground mine(More)
Teaching learners with learning disabilities in general and dyslexia in particular has become a complex task in the education sector across the globe; it is even more complex when the language of education is not the first language spoken at home. Learners with learning disabilities, especially those with dyslexia, are facing greater challenge in reading(More)
Robot navigation depends on accurate scene analysis by a camera using its data. This paper investigates a refinement of the inherent falsified depth maps generated from a 3D SwissRanger camera in the emission of beams of rays through a modulated infrared light channel affected by environmental noise. The SR4000 time-of-flight camera produces streams of(More)
