One of the most compelling social questions, which until now was left unanswered by current technology, is "Who's that?" This question is usually asked about a new unfamiliar person in a social setting who piques your curiosity. This article presents WhozThat, a system that ties together online social networks with mobile smart- phones to answer this common(More)
SUMMARY This project, code-named Viento, is a collaborative effort that combines the science of meteorology with the emerging discipline of scientific visualization and innovative satellite networking approaches to study air-lake interactions in the Lake Erie region (ref. 5). This is accomplished by coupling a mesoscale atmospheric model with lake(More)

We propose to use a circularly polarized photon beam at an incident photon energy range of 10 MeV to 40 MeV on a high-pressure polarized 3 He target to carry out a spin-dependent differential cross section measurement from three-body photodisintegration of 3 He. Such measurements will allow for a test of the state-of-the-art three-body calculations and(More)

Interaction between studded footwear and performance surfaces plays an important role in sport. Discretising this interaction into quantifiable measurements can help optimise design of outsoles and identify parameters for performance testing in situ. Here we describe the development and validity of an image based three-dimensional (3D) measurement system to(More)
In short track speed skating, the relay exchange provides an additional strategic component to races by allowing a team to change the skater involved in the pack race. It is thought that during this period of the race, time can be gained or lost due to the execution of the relay exchange. However, the only temporal measurement reported in short track speed(More)
Background subtraction is a classic step in a vision-based localization and tracking workflow. Previous studies have compared background subtraction algorithms on publicly available datasets; however comparisons were made only with manually optimized parameters. The aim of this research was to identify the optimal background subtraction algorithm for a set(More)

You may not engage in further distribution of the material or use it for any profit-making activities or any commercial gain. Abstract Simple and bifilar pendulum were used to measure the mass moments of inertia of three tennis rackets. The pendulum setups(More)
In short track speed skating, the relay exchange provides an additional strategic component to races by allowing a team to change the skater involved in the pack race. Typically executed every 1½ laps, it is the belief of skaters and coaches that during this period of the race, time can be gained or lost due to the execution of the relay exchange. As such,(More)
