BACKGROUND Little is known about the pathogenesis of invasive pulmonary aspergillosis and the relationship between the kinetics of diagnostic markers and the outcome of antifungal therapy. METHODS An in vitro model of the human alveolus, consisting of a bilayer of human alveolar epithelial and endothelial cells, was developed. An Aspergillus fumigatus(More)
We propose two metrics to demonstrate the impact integrating human-computer interaction (HCI) activities in software engineering (SE) processes. User experience metric (UXM) is a product metric that measures the subjective and ephemeral notion of the user's experience with a product. Index of integration (IoI) is a process metric that measures how(More)
Human factors engineering methodology is important for design of complex systems, such as control rooms and distributed control systems. Available methodologies are however seldom adapted to industrial needs, which limits the use of the existing human factors engineering research base. In this paper we argue that human factors engineering methods have to be(More)
This paper presents a technique to optimize contour based template matching by using General Purpose computation on Graphics Processing Units (GPGPU). Contour based template matching requires edge detection and searching for presence of a template in an entire image, real time implementation of which is not trivial. Using the proposed solution, we could(More)
In this paper we have developed a vision based navigation and obstacle detection mechanism for unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) which can be used effectively in GPS denied regions as well as in regions where remote controlled UAV navigation is impossible thus making the UAV more versatile and fully autonomous. We used a fixed single onboard video camera on(More)
In this demonstration paper, I am putting forward the Human, Technology and Organization concept on the ever-increasing use of mobile communication in our personal as well as professional life. It also reflects the interdisciplinary perspectives of mobile communication. It was our research objective to see the effect of particular technological tool i.e.(More)
In this overview we describe how user experience research and design has been established in Tech Mahindra Ltd. (TechM), and how it is organised to support both short term development programs and long term research. While focusing on research activities at TechM, the challenges of assessing real user experience issues critical to business success, user(More)
