The technology of sensor, pervasive computing, and intelligent information processing is widely used in Body Sensor Networks (BSNs), which are a branch of wireless sensor networks (WSNs). BSNs are playing an increasingly important role in the fields of medical treatment, social welfare and sports, and are changing the way humans use computers. Existing(More)
To develop a novel preimplantation genetic screening (PGS) test using next generation sequencing(NGS) as a alternative to current array comparative genomic hybridization (array CGH) method for detection of small segmental translocations in two patients with repeated implantation failure (RIF) and recurrent miscarriage (RM). Inconsistent results were(More)
The novel avian origin influenza A (H7N9) virus has caused severe diseases in humans in eastern China since the spring of 2013. Fatal outcomes of H7N9 infections are often attributed to the severe pneumonia and acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). There is urgent need to discover biomarkers predicting the progression of disease and fatal outcome of(More)
3D environment modeling and motion planning are two essential tasks for an autonomous mobile robot's outdoor navigation. In order to implement mobile robot large-scale motion planning, an edge-feature-based ICP algorithm is presented to complete 3D scene registration and reconstruction. According to the respective advantages of geometric features and(More)
In order to prolong the WSN's lifetime, a refined protocol named LEACH-H (Hybrid Cluster Head Selection Leach) is proposed in this paper. In the first round of Leach-H, the base-station selects a cluster head set through adopting Simulated Annealing Algorithm; in the followed rounds, the cluster heads will select new cluster heads in their own cluster. This(More)
TinyOS [1] is an open-source operating system, using Component Description Language NesC[2] for development. TinyOS is designed mostly for wireless sensor network, in which nodes have very limited resources. A representative scheduling mechanism in TinyOS is analyzed and its shortcomings are listed in this paper. An improved design of the priority-based(More)
An obstacle detection approach based on stereo vision is proposed for mobile robot navigation. The aim of the approach is to detect a real environment to allow a mobile robot to find a safe path even in complex scenarios. Our novelty is represented in terms of the two-stage perception structure. The detection stage infers the relationship between obstacles(More)
The paper deals with the Kalman stochastic filtering problem for linear continuous-time systems with both instantaneous and time-delayed measurements. Different from the standard linear system, the system state is corrupted by multiplicative white noise, and the instantaneous measurement and the delayed measurement are also corrupted by multiplicative white(More)
The problem of guaranteed cost control for a class of networked control systems possessing uncertainties, network delays, and packet dropouts is solved in this paper. By means of introducing an auxiliary variable, a newly coupled, switched system model is derived first. Then, based on a predictive network control scheme, the conditions for guaranteed(More)
