We propose Binary/Appearance Tracker which consists of background subtraction, silhouette similarity and particle filter to infer pedestrians' locations under different occlusion situations with a single camera. During the period of occlusions, binary and color silhouettes are adaptively used to effectively measure the similarity between the observation and(More)
In this paper, we propose two-layer coding algorithm to improve the performance of the H.264-based lossless (H.264-LS) image coding. From universal access point of view, the proposed method is based on the H.264 lossy image coding with other CABAC layer to compensate the lossy portion. Besides, the H.264-LS with DPCM (H264-LS_DPCM) and H.264-LS achieve(More)
Gentamicin (GM), one of the most commonly used aminoglycoside antibiotics, has been used for treating pneumonia; however, the applicability of GM is limited by its bioavailability and toxic side effects. This study used chitosan (CS)/fucoidan (F) nanoparticles (NPs) to develop a nanoformulation for pulmonary delivery of GM, presenting a biphasic release(More)
An efficient method for modifying the surface of detonation nanodiamonds (5 and 100 nm) with thiol groups (-SH) by using an organic chemistry strategy is presented herein. Thiolated nanodiamonds were characterized by spectroscopic techniques, and the atomic percentage of sulfur was analyzed by elemental analysis and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy. The(More)
We have already synthesized a boron-containing polymeric micellar drug delivery system for boron neutron capture therapy (BNCT). The synthesized diblock copolymer, boron-terminated copolymers (Bpin-PLA-PEOz), consisted of biodegradable poly(D,l-lactide) (PLA) block and water-soluble polyelectrolyte poly(2-ethyl-2-oxazoline) (PEOz) block, and a cap of(More)
Recent studies have implicated the prorenin receptor (PRR) is associated with pancreatic tumorigenesis. We therefore investigated the role of PRR in pancreatic tumorigenesis and assessed whether PRR can serve as a target for imaging diagnosis at early stages of PDAC. Here we show that aberrant expression of PRR in premalignant PanIN lesions, and human PDAC(More)
The interactive devices, which help humans to easily access the computer and video game player, become an important technology to provide interactive multimedia services and entertainments in the 21st century. Considering the cost and the effectiveness of the human machine interface (HMI) devices, in this paper, we design a low cost image-based(More)
