The fabrication of transparent, conductive, and uniform silver nanowire films using the scalable rod-coating technique is described in this study. Properties of the transparent conductive thin films are investigated, as well as the approaches to improve the performance of transparent silver nanowire electrodes. It is found that silver nanowires are oxidized(More)
This research proposes a PVDF film pulse wave sensor for use in driver's drowsiness detection. The sensor non-intrusively measures heart pulse wave from driver's palm and an adaptive filter is employed to cancel the measurement noise aroused by the changing of gripping force. Experimental results show clear pulse wave signals can be obtained. Two-hour(More)
Driver drowsiness is one of the major causes of serious traffic accidents, which makes this an area of great socioeconomic concern. Continuous monitoring of drivers' drowsiness thus is of great importance to reduce drowsiness-caused accidents. This proposed research developed a real-time, nonintrusive driver drowsiness detection system by building(More)
This paper presents an active noise control system for infant incubators. Experimental results show that global noise reduction can be achieved for infant incubator ANC systems. An audio-integration algorithm is presented to introduce a healthy audio (intrauterine) sound with the ANC system to mask the residual noise and soothe the infant. Carbon nanotube(More)
This paper studies the adhesion, growth, and differentiation of stem cells on carbon nanotube matrices. Glass coverslips were coated with multiwalled carbon nanotube (MWNT) thin films using layer-by-layer self-assembling techniques. Pluripotent P19 mouse embryonal carcinoma stem cells were seeded onto uncoated or MWNT-coated coverslips, and either(More)
Protein phosphorylation regulates a wide variety of cellular processes. Thus, we hypothesize that single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) that may modulate protein phosphorylation could affect osteoporosis risk. Based on a previous conventional genome-wide association (GWA) study, we conducted a three-stage meta-analysis targeting phosphorylation-related(More)
Impulsive noise is an important challenge for the practical implementation of active noise control (ANC) systems. The advantages and disadvantages of popular filtered-X least mean square (FXLMS) ANC algorithm and nonlinear filtered-X least mean M-estimate (FXLMM) algorithm are discussed in this paper. A new modified FXLMM algorithm is also proposed to(More)
This paper proposes a power optimization strategy that takes into consideration the effects of operating frequency, process, voltage, and temperature variation (FPVTV) in both analog and digital circuits. Traditional designs set the biasing points to guarantee performance over all working conditions, resulting in wasted power in most instances. By(More)
