Since there are several applications of Electrical Bioimpedance (EBI) that use the Cole parameters as base of the analysis, to fit EBI measured data onto the Cole equation is a very common practice within Multifrequency-EBI and spectroscopy. The aim of this paper is to compare different fitting methods for EBI data in order to evaluate their suitability to(More)
This paper deals with the application of Neural Networks (NNs) to the problem of Traffic Sign Recognition (TSR). The NN chosen to implement the TSR system is the Multilayer Perceptron (MLP). Two ways to reduce the computational cost in order to facilitate the real time implementation are proposed. The first one reduces the number of MLP inputs by(More)
Often when performing electrical bioimpedance (EBI) spectroscopy measurements, the obtained EBI data present a hook-like deviation, which is most noticeable at high frequencies in the impedance plane. The deviation is due to a capacitive leakage effect caused by the presence of stray capacitances. In addition to the data deviation being remarkably(More)
Very often in Electrical Bioimpedance (EBI) spectroscopy measurements the presence of stray capacitances creates a measurement artefact commonly known as Hook Effect. Such an artefact creates a hook-alike deviation of the EBI data noticeable when representing the measurement on the impedance plane. Such Hook Effect is noticeable at high frequencies but it(More)
This paper deals with the description of a hearing aid simulation tool. This tool simulates the real behavior of digital DSP-based hearing aids with the aim of getting a very promising performance, which can be used for further design and research, and for a better fitting of the hearing impaired patient. The main parameters to program are the noise(More)
