We present a simple and mass-producible method of incorporating silver nanoparticles on the surface of electrospun silk non-woven membranes for the fabrication of antimicrobial wound dressings. Nanofibrous silk membranes with fiber diameters of 460 +/- 40 nm were electrospun from an aqueous Bombyx mori fibroin solution. The electrospun membranes(More)
In this study, an energy-efficient gait pattern and swing trajectory of the powered robotic exoskeleton was proposed through function distribution analysis and the dynamic-manipulability ellipsoid (DME). The exoskeleton has 3 DOF at each side, and it is possible to determine the minimum energy consumption of the joint torques under level-ground walking and(More)
In this paper, we propose a CIECAM02-based color image enhancement method which is particularly robust to scenes with bright surrounding. The proposed method detects color edges using a distance metric based on the characteristics of a Human Visual System (HVS). The CIECAM02 is inherently strong considering both HVS and surrounding conditions. A major(More)
Recently, pedestrian detection methods have been popularly used in the field of intelligent vehicles. In most previous works, the Histogram of Oriented Gradients (HOG) is used to extract features for pedestrian detection. However HOG is difficult to use in the real-time operating system of an intelligent vehicle. In this paper, we proposed a pedestrian(More)
Face detection is an important step towards a fully automatic face recognition system. Among existing techniques in the literature, methods based on skin-color information have shown computational effectiveness as well as robustness in terms of rotation, scaling and partial occlusion. However, due to color variations resulted from illumination changes, many(More)
In the current study, we used muscle-specific TRIB3 overexpressing (MOE) and knockout (MKO) mice to determine whether TRIB3 mediates glucose-induced insulin resistance in diabetes and whether alterations in TRIB3 expression as a function of nutrient availability have a regulatory role in metabolism. In streptozotocin diabetic mice, TRIB3 MOE exacerbated,(More)
In order to detect vehicles on the road reliably, a vehicle detector and tracker should be integrated to work in unison. In real applications, some of the ROIs generated from a vehicle detector are often ill-fitting due to imperfect detector outputs. The ill-fitting ROIs make it difficult for tracker to estimate a target vehicle correctly due to outliers.(More)
An autonomous vehicle requires the technology of generating maps by recognizing the surrounding environment. The recognition of the vehicle's environment can be achieved by using distance information from a 2D laser scanner and color information from a camera. Such sensor information is used to generate 2D or 3D maps. A 2D map is used mostly for generating(More)
Obesity is associated with increased fibrinogen production and fibrin formation, which produces fibrin degradation products (FDP-E and FDP-D). Fibrin and FDPs both contribute to inflammation, which would be expected to suppress glucose uptake and insulin signaling in adipose tissue, yet the effect of FDP-E and FDP-D on adipocyte function and glucose(More)
