OBJECTIVE Extensive efforts have been made in both academia and industry in the research and development of smart wearable systems (SWS) for health monitoring (HM). Primarily influenced by skyrocketing healthcare costs and supported by recent technological advances in micro- and nanotechnologies, miniaturisation of sensors, and smart fabrics, the continuous(More)
—In this work, we present the implementation in a reconfigurable architecture of a dense stereo vision algorithm based on census transform. Analyzing census transform algorithm we found that size and access memory could be reduced, which consequently also reduced the latency time. Furthermore, architecture resources are optimized and efficient thanks to(More)
This paper describes an architecture dedicated to the realtime processing of census correlation in the context of the realization of passive stereovision sensors. Although DSP circuits have dramatically increased their performances in terms of frequency (about 600 MHz today), DSP cores (several Multipliers Accumulators) and pipelines (Super Harvard(More)
This article presents a reconfigurable architecture to calculate a dense disparity map of two stereo images based on census transform. This architecture is simplified and efficient as a result of binary operations and integer arithmetic used by census transform. Our architecture was prototyped using GAUT which is a practical tool to develop high-level(More)
The work reported on this paper describes a new methodology implementation for active structural health monitoring of recent aircraft parts made from carbon-fiber-reinforced polymer. This diagnosis is based on a new embedded method that is capable of measuring the local high frequency impedance spectrum of the structure through the calculation of the(More)
Structural health monitoring using noninvasive methods is one of the major challenges that aerospace manufacturers face in this decade. Our work in this field focuses on the development and the system integration of millimetric piezoelectric sensors/ actuators to generate and measure specific guided waves. The aim of the application is to detect mechanical(More)
