Group decisions are more complex compared to single decision making, because a number of contradicting factors are involved. These include individuals' personal opinions, goals and stakes resulting in a social procedure, where negotiation and strategy plays a critical role. In this paper we present an integrated intelligent module for the development of a(More)
Rat liver mitochondrial inner and outer membranes were subjected to the solubilizing effect of the nonionic detergent Triton X-100 under various conditions. After centrifugation, the supernatants (containing the solubilized fraction) and pellets were characterized chemically and/or ultrastructurally. The detergent seems to act by inducing a phase transition(More)
The lack of trustworthy sensors makes development of Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) applications a tough task. It is necessary to develop intelligent systems by combining reliable sensors and real-time algorithms to send the proper, accurate messages to the drivers. In this article, an application to detect and predict the movement of pedestrians(More)
Machine vision technology improves productivity and quality management and provides a competitive advantage to industries that employ this technology. In this article, visual inspection and quality control theory are combined to develop a robust inspection system with manufacturing applications. The inspection process might be defined as the one used to(More)
A simulator environment to study and understand capacity auction has been developed based on the on-line web simulator econport. The goods to auction are unloading rights for ships that transport liquefied natural gas (LNG) into harbours. Experiments have been carried out at a company that will participate in the future capacity market. The efficiency of(More)
