The present study was conducted to evaluate the validity and reproducibility of noninvasive brachial-ankle pulse wave velocity (baPWV) measurements and to examine the alteration of baPWV in patients with coronary artery disease (CAD). Simultaneous recordings of baPWV by a simple, noninvasive method and aortic pulse wave velosity (PWV) using a catheter tip(More)
Hierarchical power distribution with a power tree has been developed. The key features are power tree management rules and a distributed common power-domain implementation. The hierarchical power distribution supports a fine-grained power gating with dozens of power domains, which is analogous to a fine-grained clock gating. Leakage currents of a(More)
In this paper, we propose a new method for detecting tire-road contact points and estimating the position of a vehicle on a road taking the distortion in a circular fisheye image into consideration. In our proposed method, we use the distortional parameter of two concentric circles composed of the inner wheel and the outer tire by considering projection(More)
Vision-based research in driver support and traffic monitoring systems aiming for collision avoidance and for free traffic jams has attracted a lot of attention lately. In this paper, we propose a robust new extraction method of wheel region for estimating the vehicle position on a road taking the distortion in a circular fisheye image into consideration.(More)
Vehicle classification is very important in traffic flow analysis for traffic monitoring systems. Accurate estimation of wheel baseline length can provide a useful cue for vehicle classification. In this paper, we propose a new method for detecting accurate wheel center points and estimating the wheel baseline length of a vehicle taking the distortion in(More)
The authors propose a new method to estimate the local dielectric constant of an ultrathin gate insulator film formed on Si substrates by using X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS). First the authors measure the difference of core-level binding energy shifts for Si 1s and Si 2p, DeltaE<sub>1s</sub> DeltaE<sub>2p</sub>, for various Si compounds using(More)
