— This paper describes extensions to the Kintinu-ous [1] algorithm for spatially extended KinectFusion, incorporating the following additions: (i) the integration of multiple 6DOF camera odometry estimation methods for robust tracking ; (ii) a novel GPU-based implementation of an existing dense RGB-D visual odometry algorithm; (iii) advanced fused real-time(More)
The paper examines second stage DEA efficiency analyses, within the context of a censoring data generating process (DGP) and a fractional data DGP, when efficiency scores are treated as descriptive measures of the relative performance of units in the sample. It is argued that the efficiency scores are not generated by a censoring process but are fractional(More)

Abstract We present a new SLAM system capable of producing high quality globally consistent surface reconstructions over hundreds of metres in real-time with only a low-cost commodity RGB-D sensor. By using a fused volumetric surface(More)
The emergence of the Internet as a trusted medium for commerce and communication has made cryptography an essential component of modern information systems. Cryptography provides the mechanisms necessary to implement accountability, accuracy, and confidentiality in communication. As demands for secure communication bandwidth grow, efficient cryptographic(More)
Knockout and pharmacological studies have shown that delta opioid peptide (DOP) receptor signalling regulates emotional responses. In the present study, the in vitro and in vivo pharmacological profile of the DOP ligand, H-Dmt-Tic-NH-CH(CH2-COOH)-Bid (UFP-512) was investigated. In receptor binding experiments performed on membranes of CHO cells expressing(More)
Research studies on sensory issues in autism, including those based on questionnaires, autobiographical accounts, retrospective video observations and early experimental approaches are reviewed in terms of their strengths and limitations. We present a cognitive neuroscience theoretical perspective on multisensory integration and propose that this may be a(More)
for the evaluation of visual odometry, 3D reconstruction and SLAM algorithms that typically use RGB-D data. We present a collection of handheld RGB-D camera sequences within synthetically generated environments. RGB-D sequences with perfect ground truth poses are provided as well as a ground truth surface model that enables a method of quantitatively(More)
1. Nociceptin/orphanin FQ (N/OFQ) modulates several biological functions by activating a specific G-protein coupled receptor (NOP). Few molecules are available that selectively activate or block the NOP receptor. Here we describe the in vitro and in vivo pharmacological profile of a novel NOP receptor ligand, [Nphe(1),Arg(14),Lys(15)]N/OFQ-NH(2) (UFP-101).(More)
The compound SB-612111 [(-)-cis-1-methyl-7-[[4-(2,6-dichlorophenyl)piperidin-1-yl]methyl]-6,7,8,9-tetrahydro-5H-benzocyclohepten-5-ol] was recently identified as a selective antagonist for the nociceptin/orphanin FQ (N/OFQ) peptide receptor (NOP). In the present study, the in vitro pharmacological profile of SB-612111 at human recombinant NOP receptors(More)
