ERP systems have become the system of choice for the majority of publicly traded companies and have radically changed the way accounting information is processed, prepared, audited, and disseminated. In this study, we examine whether ERP system implementations have affected the extent to which firms manage earnings amounts and release dates. We find, for a(More)
In this paper, we present a new improved Active Shape Model (ASM) for facial feature points extraction. ASM performance is often influenced by some factors such as initial position, illumination, pose, etc, which frequently lead to the local minima in optimization. The original ASM has two sub-models: global shape model and local texture model, we proposed(More)
The objective of this paper is to propose a new system for fault diagnosis of train bearings using PCA and ACO. On the base of the analysis of time and frequency domain statistical features extracted from the vibration signals collected from the bearings, twenty features which were the most sensitive to different working states were chosen as the object of(More)
Estrogens have a whole host of physiological functions in many human organs and systems, including the reproductive, cardiovascular, and central nervous systems. Many naturally-occurring compounds with estrogenic or antiestrogenic activity are present in our environment and food sources. Synthetic estrogens and antiestrogens are also important therapeutic(More)
This paper presents techniques developed for lane following and obstacle detection capabilities for autonomous vehicles. The proposed system is based on a single 120 degrees fish eye camera and a 180 degrees scanning LIDAR sensor. For the lane detection a modified lane marking technique was used representing the position of the lines making the lane with(More)
Microsatellite primer PCR (SSRP-PCR) technique was used to investigate the genetic diversity in Oedaleus Fieber and provide insights into the geographical origin of Taiyuan population. The proportion of polymorphic loci by SSRP markers indicated that three populations in Oedaleus asiaticus B.-Bienko had remarkable genetic variation (85.7–96.9%)(More)
