This paper addresses the problem of monocular vehicle detection for forward collision warning. We present a system that is able to process large images with high speed and delivers high detection rates at only one false alarm every 100 frames.
Mice that received an anti-interleukin-10 (anti-IL-10) neutralizing monoclonal antibody (MAb) (SXC-1) prior to infection with Listeria monocytogenes initially demonstrated resistance to the infection, as indicated by reduced recovery of L. monocytogenes from their spleens and livers during the first 5 days after challenge. Anti-IL-10 MAb-treated mice then(More)
In contrast to immunocompetent controls, interleukin-10 (IL-10) knockout (KO) mice eliminated an experimental intravenous inoculation with Candida albicans from their kidneys. Improved clearance of C. albicans from the kidneys of IL-10 KO mice was evident at 24 h after intravenous challenge with the fungus. Conversely, mice with a deletion of the IL-4(More)
Germ-free BALB/c mice, genetically engineered to be deficient for interleukin-8 (IL-8) receptor homolog (IL-8Rh-/-), were more susceptible to gastric candidiasis after oral challenge and to acute systemic candidiasis after intravenous challenge than IL-8Rh+/+ controls. In comparison to IL-8Rh+/+ mice, the IL-8Rh-/- mice had slower influx of(More)
Temporally distinct groups of cytokine expression was observed by reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction assay, in situ hybridization, and immunohistochemistry in the livers of Listeria monocytogenes-infected mice. One group consisted of interferon-gamma (IFN-gamma), tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-alpha), and interleukin-10 (IL-10), for which(More)
Learning Convolutional Neural Networks (CNN) is commonly carried out by plain supervised gradient descent. With sufficient training data, this leads to very competitive results for visual recognition tasks when starting from a random initialization. When the amount of labeled data is limited, CNNs reveal their strong dependence on large amounts of training(More)
Detecting the road geometry at night time is an essential precondition to provide optimal illumination for the driver and the other traffic participants. In this paper we propose a novel approach to estimate the current road curvature based on three sensors: A far infrared camera, a near infrared camera and an imaging radar sensor. Various Convolutional(More)
Two commercially available Bifidobacterium spp. (Bifidobacterium infantis and Bifidobacterium lactis) were compared for their capacities to protect immunodeficient bg/bg-nu/nuand bg/bg-nu/+mice from orogastric and lethal candidiasis. Both Bifidobacterium spp. prolonged the survival of Candida albicans-colonized adult and neonatal bg/bg-nu/numice. The(More)
Two commercially available isolates of Lactobacillus acidophilus (NCFM and LA-1) were compared for their capacities to protect immunodeficient bg/bg-nu/un and bg/bg-nu/+ mice from candidiasis. L. acidophilus NCFM prolonged survival of adult and neonatal bg/bg-nu/nu mice, inhibited disseminated candidiasis in both mouse strains, suppressed weight loss(More)
