A new approach for mobility, providing an alternative to the private passenger car, by offering the same flexibility but with much less nuisances, is emerging, based on fully automated electric vehicles. A fleet of such vehicles might be an important element in a novel individual, door-to-door, transportation system to the city of tomorrow. For fully(More)
The image of a planar mirror reflection (IPMR) can be interpreted as a virtual view of the scene, acquired by a camera with a pose symmetric to the pose of the real camera with respect to the mirror plane. The epipolar geometry of virtual views associated with different IPMRs is well understood, and it is possible to recover the camera motion and perform 3D(More)
The purpose of this study was to test the hypothesis that the presence of a subaortic ridge associated with a ventricular septal defect (VSD) is related to a malaligned ventricular septum caused by anterior or posterior deviation of the infundibular septum with or without obstructive lesions of the aortic arch. Thirty-two of 295 patients in whom a diagnosis(More)
Many video and image/signal processing applications can be structured as sequences of data-dependent tasks using a consumer/producer communication paradigm and are therefore amenable to pipelined execution. This paper presents an execution technique to speed-up the overall execution of successive, data-dependent tasks on a reconfigurable architecture. The(More)
We present a method for location of fetal QRS in maternal abdominal ECG recordings. This method's initial, global approach was proposed in the context of the 2013 PhysioNet/Computing in Cardiology Challenge where it was tested on the 447 four channel one-minute recordings.The first step is filtering to eliminate baseline wander and high frequency noise.(More)
INTRODUCTION Aortopulmonary window (APW) is a rare anomaly, accounting for 0.1% of congenital heart defects. It consists of a communication between the ascending aorta and the pulmonary artery in the presence of normal separate aortic and pulmonary valves. Early treatment is usually required in order to prevent the development of irreversible pulmonary(More)
BACKGROUND Mitral annular disjunction (MAD) consists of an altered spatial relation between the left atrial wall, the attachment of the mitral leaflets, and the top of the left ventricular (LV) free wall, manifested as a wide separation between the atrial wall-mitral valve junction and the top of the LV free wall. Originally described in association with(More)
INTRODUCTION As surgical revascularization is becoming more frequent in octogenarians, we reviewed our data to analyze the impact of coronary artery bypass grafting on short- and long-term morbidity and mortality. METHODS We performed a retrospective study of 101 consecutive patients aged 80 years or older, who underwent coronary artery bypass in a single(More)
Locating components which are responsible for observed failures is the most expensive, error-prone phase in the software development life cycle. We present an Eclipse Plug-in that aims to fill some of the automatic debugging tools gaps: the lack of a visualization tool that provides intuitive feedback about the defect distribution over the code base, and(More)
