Falls are unpredictable accidents and resulting injuries can be serious to the elderly. A preventative solution can be the use of vibration stimulus of white noise to improve the sense of balance. In this work, a pair of vibration shoes were developed and controlled by a touch-type switch which can generate mechanical vibration noise to stimulate the(More)
Using an inexpensive headphone-based 3-D sound display, sound localization accuracy was assessed for six listeners, before, during, and after a perceptual feedback training procedure which provided listeners with paired auditory/visual feedback as to the correct sound source position. We show that feedback training markedly improved localization accuracy,(More)
Resin transfer molding (RTM) is a popular manufacturing technique that produces fiber reinforced polymer (FRP) composites. In this paper, a model-assisted flow front control system is developed based on real-time estimation of permeability/porosity ratio using the information acquired by a visualization system. In the proposed control system, a radial basis(More)
In order to correct non-uniform backgrounds in thermal images of carbon fiber-reinforced polymers (CFRP), we propose a processing and analysis procedure in this paper. We apply thermographic signal reconstruction (TSR) using time-direction information to reduce noise in thermal images, followed by Whittaker smoothing (WS) to further reduce noise in(More)
