This paper is concerned with distributed Kalman filtering for linear time-varying systems over multiagent sensor networks. We propose a diffusion Kalman filtering algorithm based on the covariance intersection method, where local estimates are fused by incorporating the covariance information of local Kalman filters. Our algorithm leads to a stable estimate(More)
This paper addresses a vision-based cooperative search for multiple mobile ground targets by a group of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) with limited sensing and communication capabilities. The airborne camera on each UAV has a limited field of view and its target discriminability varies as a function of altitude. First, by dividing the whole surveillance(More)
In this study, an environmentally friendly biosorbent deacetylated konjac glucomannan conjugated soy protein isolate (abbreviated as DKGM-C-SPI) was prepared for Cu(2+) ions removal from aqueous solution. Scanning electron microscopy, Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy and zeta potential analysis revealed successful conjugation of soy protein isolate(More)
Model regression is vitally important for performance prediction and quality control in the manufacturing industry. Since manufacturing machines always suffer from random disturbances and unobservable model shift/drift due to component failure and tool wear in the daily production, online model regression techniques are required by the manufacturers to help(More)
This paper addresses vision-based cooperative search for multiple mobile ground targets by a group of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) with limited sensing and communication capabilities. The airborne camera on each UAV has a limited field of view and its target discriminability varies as a function of altitude. First, a general target detection probability(More)
The application of mobile robotic sensor networks has been widely studied in target localization and pursuit. Conventional target tracking methods always require an explicit system observation model of the target positions, which, however, would fail if such model is unobtainable. In this paper, a distributed target localization and pursuit scheme is(More)
