26 27 The 85 th and the 15 th percentiles are two parameters that are commonly used in traffic 28 engineering and traffic safety. For example, 85 th percentile speeds are used in setting speed limits 29 and for evaluating the effectiveness of safety countermeasures, and 15 th percentile speeds are 30 used for establishing typical walking speeds for traffic(More)
—Deep convolutional neural networks (CNN) have recently been shown in many computer vision and pattern recognition applications to outperform by a significant margin state-of-the-art solutions that use traditional hand-crafted features. However, this impressive performance is yet to be fully exploited in robotics. In this paper, we focus one specific(More)
—In this paper, we propose a parallel block-based Viterbi decoder (PBVD) on the graphic processing unit (GPU) platform for the decoding of convolutional codes. The decoding procedure is simplified and parallelized, and the characteristic of the trellis is exploited to reduce the metric computation. Based on the compute unified device architecture (CUDA),(More)
The multi-junction concept is the most relevant approach to overcome the Shockley-Queisser limit for single-junction photovoltaic cells. The record efficiencies of several types of solar technologies are held by series-connected tandem configurations. However, the stringent current-matching criterion presents primarily a material challenge and permanently(More)
The common carp (Cyprinus carpio) as one of the most important aquaculture fishes produces over 3 million metric tones annually, approximately 10% the annual production of the all farmed freshwater fish worldwide. However, the tetraploidy genome and long generation-time of the common carp have made its breeding and genetic studies extremely difficult. Here,(More)
In order to study the influence of packet loss on the users’ quality of experience QoE and establish the Mapping model of the two when the video transmit in the network, building a NS2 + MyEvalvid simulation platform, by the method of modifying QoS parameters to simulate different degrees of packet loss, focus on the influence of packet loss on QoE and(More)
