Classifying selectors are used to control the population of foam-causing organisms in activated-sludge plants to prevent the development of nuisance foams. The term, classifying selector, refers to the physical mechanism by which these organisms are selected against; foam-causing organisms are enriched into the solids in the foam and their rapid removal(More)
Intelligent space (iSpace) is a relatively new concept to effectively use distributed sensors, actuators, robots, computing processors and information technology over communication networks. iSpace is a large scale mechatronics system by integrating sensors, actuators, and control algorithms in a communication system using knowledge from various engineering(More)
A mathematical model of collagen fiber mesh formation was created to evaluate the possible role of chemotaxis and haptotaxis in the histomorphology of a desmoplastic stromal reaction (DSR). Fibroblasts were mathematicaly interpreted as mobile discrete objects, characterized by their velocity and position, both dependent on time. This resulted in cell(More)
– Using a communication network, such as an IP network, in the control loop is increasingly becoming the norm. This process of network-based control (NBC) has a potentially profound impact in areas such as: teleoperation, healthcare, military applications, and manufacturing. However, limitations arise as the communication network introduces delay that often(More)

Virtual tissue can be generated by employing various methods. First steps en route to virtual tissue may encompass the generation of virtual cells. One such approach termed Quaoaring was applied to produce artificial erythrocytes and these were both discocyte and echinocyte in shape. The results were subsequently compared with data gleaned from scanning(More)
In the present study, a semi-automatic segmentation and classification algorithm is proposed for the analysis of histological and cytological images. In view of the fact that histological and cytological images usually exhibit poor contrast and blurred outlines, classical segmentation algorithms often fail to detect relevant structures. A new algorithm for(More)
