Vision systems employing region segmentation by color are crucial in real-time mobile robot applications, such as RoboCup[1], or other domains where interaction with humans or a dynamic world is required. Traditionally, systems employing real-time color-based segmentation are either implemented in hardware, or as very specific software systems that take(More)
In an adversarial multi-robot task, such as playing robot soccer, decisions for team and single robot behavior must be made quickly to take advantage of short-term fortuitous events when they occur. When no such opportunities exist, the team must execute sequences of coordinated action across team members that increases the likelihood of future(More)
Fast pattern detection and identification is a fundamental problem for many applications of real-time vision systems. The desirable characteristics for a solution are that it takes little computation, localizes a pattern robustly and with high accuracy, and can identify a large number of unique pattern identifiers so that many patterns can be tracked within(More)
Vision systems employing region segmentation by color are crucial in real-time interactive mobile robot applications such as object tracking (e.g. the ball in RoboCup soccer) and various forms of robot/human interaction. Traditionally, systems employing real-time color-based segmentation are either implemented in hardware, or as very specific software(More)
BACKGROUND Pulse transit time (PTT) measurement may provide rapidly available beat-to-beat cardiovascular information when conditions change quickly and routine invasive arterial pressure measurement is not justified, for example during obstetric spinal anaesthesia. Method. We obtained ethics approval for an observational study of PTT during the onset of(More)
CM-Pack’01 came in second place at RoboCup-2001 in the Sony Legged League. This is our fourth year competiting in this league. We used a simplified architecture this year. Our vision, localization, and behaviors ran synchronously with the camera input while our motions remained an asynchronous process. We focused on reducing latency and increasing(More)
The records of 583 children who were treated for intussusception at the Children's Hospital of Buffalo in the period 1930-1985 were reviewed. Following a change in management in 1970 from operative treatment to hydrostatic reduction of the intussusception by barium enema, two main groups are defined. In earlier years 95% of patients underwent operative(More)
A rare case of recurrent pleomorphic adenoma of the palate in a 9-year-old boy is presented. Pleomorphic adenoma is relatively rare in children compared with its incidence in adults. However, it is the most common benign epithelial tumour of the salivary glands. The majority of pleomorphic adenomata in children occur in the major salivary glands, mainly the(More)
