This study investigates the classification ability of linear and nonlinear classifiers on biological signals using the electroencephalogram (EEG) and examines the impact of architectural changes within the classifier in order to enhance the classification. Consequently, artificial events were used to validate a prototype EEG-based microsleep detection(More)
Motivation for this research is the real-time restoration of faint astronomical images through turbulence over a large field-of-view. A simulation platform was developed to predict the centroid of a science object, convolved through multiple perturbation fields, and projected on to an image plane. Centroid data were selected from various source and target(More)
The maximum subarray problem is used to identify the subarray of a two dimensional array, where the sum of elements is maximized. In terms of image processing, the solution has been used to find the brightest region within an image. Two parallel algorithms of the maximum subarray problem solve this problem in O(n) and O(log n) time. A field programmable(More)
The performance of a microsleep detection system was calculated in terms of its ability to detect the behavioural microsleep state (1-s epochs) from spectral features derived from 16-channel EEG sampled at 256 Hz. Best performance from a single classifier model was achieved using leaky integrator neurons on an echo state network (ESN) classifier with a mean(More)
Biosignal classification systems often have to deal with extraneous features, highly imbalanced datasets, and a low SNR. A robust feature selection/reduction method is a crucial step in this process. Sets of artificial data were generated to test a prototype EEG-based microsleep detection system, consisting of a combination of EEG and 2-s bursts of 15-Hz(More)
