This paper presents a VLSI Architecture to implement the forward and inverse 2-D Discrete Wavelet Transform (FDWT/IDWT), to compress medical images for storage and retrieval. Lossless compression is usually required in the medical image field. The word length required for lossless compression makes too expensive the area cost of the architectures that(More)
Many techniques have been developed to perform indoor location. Each strategy has its own advantages and drawbacks, with the application demanding location information the main determinant of the system to be used. In this paper, a system is presented that serves location to innovative services for elderly and disabled people, ranging from alarm and(More)
Resonant converters often require accurate load characterization in order to ensure appropriate and safe control. Besides, for systems with a highly variable load, as the induction heating systems, a real-time load estimation is mandatory. This paper presents the development of an FPGA-based test-bench aimed to extract the electrical equivalent of the(More)
The MonAMI project was aimed to investigate the feasibility of the deployment of open platforms for Ambient Asssited Living (AAL) services provision and to test user acceptance and the usability of the services. The services were designed to give support in the areas of environmental control, security, and leisure. The participants included elderly persons(More)
The MonAMI project aims to investigate the feasibility of the deployment of open platforms for Ambient Assisted Living (AAL) services provision based on Ambient Intelligence (AmI) and to test user acceptance and the usability of the services. Services were designed to provide support in the areas of environmental control, security, well-being and leisure.(More)
