In cooperative perception systems, different vehicles share object data obtained by their local environment perception sensors, like radar or lidar, via wireless communication. Inaccurate self-localizations of the vehicles complicate association of locally perceived objects and objects detected and transmitted by other vehicles. In this paper, a method for… (More)
— This paper adresses the issue of modelling and identification of individual driver steering behaviour from a new point of view, incorporating the idea of human motion being built up by an individual and limited repertoire of learned patterns. We introduce a switched affine model structure to explain a measurable motion alphabet in the driving context and… (More)
In this paper, we present a novel approach for dialog modeling, which extends the idea underlying the partially observable Markov Decision Processes (POMDPs), i. e. it allows for calculating the dialog policy in real-time and thereby increases the system flexibility. The use of statistical dialog models is particularly advantageous to react adequately to… (More)
Reconfigurable processing units promise to boost the performance of computational intensive applications. Thereby the kernel of an application is executed in the reconfigurable hardware instead of being executed in software. This report presents a reconfigurable extension for the CarCore embedded processor. The extension combines reconfigurability with… (More)
The field of plasmonics is currently at the exciting stage of a move from passive structures to hybrid assemblies with active functions. This tutorial will provide an overview of current trends in this development.
Research Area. This PhD project with the topic \Comparative Analysis of Cultures by means of Cybernetic Modelling Methods" has a very transdisciplinary character since it covers a range of diierent scientiic areas. Therefore I want to sketch the scientiic area of research of this project. This work could be included in the area of cybernetics, however… (More)
