In this paper, we propose a new rate allocation algorithm for transform domain Wyner-Ziv video coding (WZVC) without feedback. In contrast to conventional video coding, Wyner-Ziv video coding aims to design simple intra-frame encoding and complex inter-frame decoding based on the Slepian-Wolf and Wyner-Ziv distributed source coding theorems. To allocate(More)
In most existing Wyner–Ziv video coding schemes, a feedback channel (FC) is expected at the decoder in order to allocate a proper bit rate for each Wyner–Ziv frame. However, FC not only results in additional latency but also increases decoding complexity due to the several feedback-decoding iterations. Moreover, FC may be unavailable in many practical video(More)
Recently, 7-methylheptadecane and 7,11-dimethylheptadecane have been reported as sex pheromone components of both spring hemlock looper (SHL), Lambdina athasaria, and pitch pine looper (PPL), Lambdina pellucidaria. Our objective was to test the hypothesis that SHL and PPL are reproductively isolated, in part, through species specificity in: (1) absolute(More)
The aim of this study is to assess whether preoperative serum interleukin-6 (IL-6) can predict recurrence of hepatitis B virus (HBV)-associated hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). The association between preoperative IL-6 levels and HCC recurrence following curative hepatectomy in 146 patients with chronic HBV infection was determined. Patients were divided(More)
This paper presents the basic configuration and control method of the humanoid robot Blackmann, which is developed by the Robot Laboratory in the National University of Defense Technology, China. Blackmann is 1.55 meters tall and 63.5 Kg weight with 36 DOFs, and it was designed to be humanlike including two legs, two arms, a trunk and a head. This paper(More)
The computing power of microprocessors has exponentially increased in the past few decades, so the support to computation intensive multimedia applications has increased too. With such improved computing power, memory subsystem deficiency becomes the major barrier to support video encoder on digital signal processor (DSP). H.264/AVC becomes the next(More)

BACKGROUND Lignocellulosic biomass is one of earth's most abundant resources, and it has great potential for biofuel production because it is renewable and has carbon-neutral characteristics. Lignocellulose is mainly composed of carbohydrate polymers (cellulose and hemicellulose), which contain approximately 75 % fermentable sugars for biofuel fermentation.(More)
A humanoid online motion planning method is proposed using description of selected variables. The proposed method changes humanoid motion planning into planning of several selected variables. And these variables are chosen to reflect the motion state of humanoid robots, including ZMP, Center of Gravity (CoG), Center of Coxa (CoC), foot position and the(More)
The technology for high precision attitude determination when using low precision sensors is a key requirement of a modern small satellite. This paper presents a new attitude determination algorithm termed preprocess EKF(PP-EKF) based on preprocessing of the sensor data. It can enhance the overall modeling accuracy by using the quadratic penalty function to(More)
