This paper describes the prototype for a Europe-wide distributed database of mammograms entitled MammoGrid, which was developed as part of an EU-funded project. The MammoGrid database appears to the user to be a single database, but the mammograms that comprise it are in fact retained and curated in the centres that generated them. Linked to each image is a(More)
This paper investigates the Digital Subscriber Line (DSL) data-rate increases possible with the Dynamic Spectrum Management (DSM) methods known as Level 3 Vectoring and Level 2 Band Preference. A suggested sequence of increasingly binder-adaptive DSM steps appears herein to assist and motivate DSL service providers and equipment vendors to progress in use(More)
In recent years, traffic video surveillance has increased significantly. However, most of the footage is reviewed by humans or not at all. Tools capable of analysing traffic video sequences and autonomously extracting information are required. This paper presents an analysis of two automatic methods for classifying driver behaviour using only data provided(More)
Research on the effects of Direct Instruction (DI) among students with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) has only recently emerged. A benefit of DI is that it can be implemented with groups of students, which makes it potentially a cost effective method of instruction for some skills. In this study, we examined the effects of DI on teaching secondary students(More)
abstract This paper describes a distributed transputer architecture used for real-time sensing and control of an intelligent mobile robot. This architecture takes the form of a network of sensing and control nodes, based o n k a l l y Intelligent Control AgentdLICAs). Each LICA has its own processing facility, which together do not require any common buses(More)
This paper presents the results of the continued development of creep-resistant, alumina-forming austenitic (AFA) stainless steel alloys, which exhibit a unique combination of excellent oxidation resistance via protective alumina (Al 2 O 3) scale formation and high-temperature creep strength through the formation of stable nano-scale MC carbides and(More)
Children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) frequently present intervention challenges for parents. Covert audio coaching (CAC) has not been studied with parents, nor as an intervention to teach household routines and tasks. Further, evidence of generalization with CAC is limited. We examined the effectiveness of immediate feedback via CAC on mothers'(More)
We evaluated the efficacy of an instructional procedure to teach young children with autism to evacuate settings and notify an adult during a fire alarm. A multiple baseline design across children showed that an intervention that included modeling, rehearsal, and praise was effective in teaching fire safety skills. Safety skills generalized to novel(More)
