High performance monitoring and control of real-time environments over network is of importance to modern process control. The designed system focuses on meeting the special requirements of the control-level within factory communication systems to transmit real-time data via a switched Ethernet network. The architecture of the embedded-web based distributed(More)
In this paper, a face and eye tracking system for the detection of driver drowsiness is proposed. In order to meet real-time requirements, we use a probability measure based on information theory, which perform fast and robustly. The proposed system consists of two-steps: ROI extraction at the first frame, and eyes tracking at all frames. First, face is(More)
In this paper, we propose a new method called arbitrary shape region of interest (ROI) coding based on the integer-to-integer shape adaptive discrete wavelet transform (ISA-DWT). Firstly, the whole image is encoded to measure whether the reconstructed ROI PSNR is higher than the target. If it is true, it means that the estimated ROI PSNR is higher than the(More)
A new approach has been developed by combining the K-mean clustering (KMC) method and a modified convolution kernel compensation (CKC) method for multichannel surface electromyogram (EMG) decomposition. The KMC method was first utilized to cluster vectors of observations at different time instants and then estimate the initial innervation pulse train (IPT).(More)
This paper describes the hardware configuration and software structure of an Internet-based control engineering laboratory. The laboratory provides a remote access to many experiment plants which all have distinguished features that render them worthwhile for experimentation for either control education or research. After logging on the laboratory to choose(More)
The electric properties (EPs) of biological tissue, i.e., the electric conductivity and permittivity, can provide important information in the diagnosis of various diseases. The EPs also play an important role in specific absorption rate calculation, a major concern in high-field MRI, as well as in nonmedical areas such as wireless telecommunications. The(More)
We have applied the magnetic resonance electrical impedance imaging (MREIT) technique to image the three-dimensional (3D) conductivity distribution of the human head. Computer simulations were carried out on a tradition four-sphere head model to test the feasibility of imaging conductivity distribution of the human head. The present results show that the 3D(More)
Holes in the skull and the scalp are associated with intracranial monitoring procedures. The purpose of the present study is to evaluate the effects of holes on extracranial electroencephalogram (EEG) and intracranial electrocorticogram (ECoG) recordings. The finite difference method (FDM) was used to model the head volume conductor with a hole of varying(More)
