Internet of things (IoT) has provided a promising choice for structural health monitoring (SHM) recently. In vibration-based structural health monitoring, structural features which are extracted from periodically spaced measurement using sensors are subject to variable environmental conditions. This paper proposes an environmental effect removal based(More)
The Internet of Things (IoT), which is usually established over architectures of wireless sensor networks, provides an actual platform for various applications of personal and ubiquitous computing. Recently, moving target localization and tracking in an IoT environment have been paid more and more attention. This paper proposes a square-root unscented(More)
Renal interstitial fibrosis is a common outcome of chronic renal diseases. Amygdalin is one of a number of nitrilosides, the natural cyanide‑containing substances abundant in the seeds of plants of the prunasin family that are used to treat cancer and relieve pain. However, whether amygdalin inhibits the progression of renal fibrosis or not remains unknown.(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to evaluate the efficiency and safety of simultaneous islet and kidney transplantation in patients with type 1 diabetes and end-stage renal disease using a glucocorticoid-free immunosuppressive regimen with alemtuzumab induction. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS Seven patients with type 1 diabetes and end-stage renal failure(More)
BACKGROUND AIMS Minimal change nephrotic syndrome is the most frequent cause of nephrotic syndrome in childhood. Current treatment regimes, which include glucocorticoid hormones and immunosuppressive therapy, are effective and have fast response. However, because of the side effects, long treatment course, poor patient compliance and relapse, novel(More)
Smartphone based activity recognition has recently received remarkable attention in various applications of mobile health such as safety monitoring, fitness tracking, and disease prediction. To achieve more accurate and simplified medical monitoring, this paper proposes a self-learning scheme for patients’ activity recognition, in which a patient only needs(More)
We propose in this paper a non-cyclic prefixed multiple-input multiple-output orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (non-cp MIMO-OFDM) system based on a recursive algorithm of joint channel estimation and data detection. Unlike in the traditional cyclic prefixed MIMO-OFDM system, the transmitted sequence of the proposed system is given in the way that(More)
A double-filled photonic crystal fiber (PCF) was fabricated by filling liquids of different indexes into two air holes in the cladding. The core mode coupled to the local cladding modes LP(01) and LP(11) in the 1310 and 1550 nm wavebands, respectively. Due to the unique characteristics of the mode coupling, the resonant peaks in different resonance areas(More)
Turbo receivers have been widely studied and used in the field of iterative signal processing. In this paper, a novel turbo receiver combined with multiuser carrier frequency offset (CFO) compensation in frequency-domain is proposed for orthogonal frequency division multiple access (OFDMA) uplink. Based on the principle of frequency-domain turbo(More)
