This paper describes a real-time stereo vision system that is required to support high-level object based tasks in a tele-operated environment. Stereo vision is computation-ally expensive, due to having to find corresponding pixels. Correlation is a fast, standard way to solve the correspondence problem. This paper analyses the behaviour of correlation(More)
Camera motion estimation is useful for a range of applications. Usually, feature tracking is performed through the sequence of images to determine correspondences. Furthermore , robust statistical techniques are normally used to handle large number of outliers in correspondences. This paper proposes a new method that avoids both. Motion is calculated(More)
Here we report the development of a new neural network based approach for rapid quantification of protein secondary structure from Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectra of proteins. A technique for efficiently reducing the amount of spectral data by almost 90% is suggested to facilitate faster neural network analysis. Additionally, an automatic(More)
This paper describes a fuzzy approach to computer-aided medical diagnosis in a clinical context. It introduces a formal view of diagnosis in clinical settings and shows the relevance and possible uses of fuzzy cognitive maps. A constraint satisfaction method is introduced that uses the temporal uncertainty in symptom durations that may occur with particular(More)
This paper concerns the classification analysis of exercise-induced lower leg pain by applying competitive neural network clustering and mapping techniques to type 1 and type 2 fuzzy descriptions of bone scan images of the tibia. The clusters are described and compared with each other and with the experts known classes that would be expected from medical(More)
Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy is a very flexible technique for characterization of protein secondary structure. Measurements can be carried out rapidly in a number of different environments based on only small quantities of proteins. For this technique to become more widely used for protein secondary structure characterization, however,(More)
Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy is an attractive tool for proteomics research as it can be used to rapidly characterize protein secondary structure in aqueous solution. Recently, a number of secondary structure prediction methods based on reference sets of FTIR spectra from proteins with known structure from X-ray crystallography have been(More)
