The particle swarm optimizer (PSO) is a population-based optimization technique that can be applied to a wide range of problems. This paper presents a variation on the traditional PSO algorithm, called the efficient population utilization strategy for PSO (EPUS-PSO), adopting a population manager to significantly improve the efficiency of PSO. This is(More)
Lane-marking detection is one of the major concerned topics in the field of driving safety and intelligent vehicle. In this paper, a new method using HSI color model for lane-marking detection, HSILMD, is proposed. In HSILMD, full color images are converted into HSI color representation, within the region of interest (ROI) aiming to detect road surface on(More)

As more and more real-world optimization problems become increasingly complex, algorithms with more capable optimizations are also increasing in demand. For solving large scale global optimization problems, this paper presents a variation on the traditional PSO algorithm, called the efficient population utilization strategy for particle swarm optimizer(More)
This paper presents a floorplanning method based on particle swarm optimization (PSO). We adopted the B*-tree floorplan structure to generate an initial stage with overlap free for placement and utilized PSO to find out the potential optimal placement solution. Unlike other related research, our method can avoid the solution from falling into the local(More)
Noise reduction problem is addressed by this study. Recently, wavelet thresholding has become popular and has gotten much attention among a number of de-noisy approaches. The most of threshold determination are developed from universal method proposed by Donoho. But, some shortcomings of the determination are caused from several incorrectly estimated(More)
