—White Rabbit (WR) is the project name for a ambiguous project that uses Ethernet as both, deterministic (synchronous) data transfer and timing network. The presented design aims for a general purpose, fieldbus like transmission system, which provides deterministic data and timing to approximately 1000 timing stations. The main advantage over conventional… (More)
In this paper, the dynamic model with sensor and actuator for the articulated robotic arm is obtained by using the combination of the structural, the sensor, and the actuator dynamic models. The proposed approach is validated comparing the simulation results against the experimental results.
BACKGROUND Dengue is a leading cause of morbidity throughout the tropics; however, accurate population-based estimates of mortality rates are not available. METHODS/PRINCIPAL FINDINGS We established the Enhanced Fatal Acute Febrile Illness Surveillance System (EFASS) to estimate dengue mortality rates in Puerto Rico. Healthcare professionals submitted… (More)
The recently proposed speaker diarization technique based on binary keys provides a very fast alternative to state-of-the-art systems with little increase of Diarization Error Rate (DER). Although the approach shows great potential, it also presents issues, mainly in the stopping criterion. Therefore, exploring alternative clustering/stopping criterion… (More)
The operation of a domestic induction cooktop is based on the wireless energy transfer from the inductor to the pot. In such systems, the induction efficiency is defined as the ratio between the power delivered to the pot and the consumed power from the supplying converter. The non-transferred power is dissipated in the inductor, raising its temperature.… (More)
Speaker diarization has become a key process within other speech processing systems which take advantage of single-speaker speech signals. Furthermore, finding recurrent speakers among a set of audio recordings, known as cross-show diarization, is gaining attention in the last years. Current state-of-the-art-systems provide good performance, but usually at… (More)
