— It became a well known technology that a map of complex environment containing low-level geometric primitives (such as laser points) can be generated using a robot with laser scanners. This research is motivated by the need of obtaining semantic knowledge of a large urban outdoor environment after the robot explores and generates a low-level sensing data(More)
This study compares the crossbridge kinetics of intact and skinned preparations from ferret cardiac muscles at 20 degrees C to determine whether skinning causes any alteration in the crossbridge response to an imposed length change. A papillary or trabecular muscle was isolated from the right ventricle, the muscle length adjusted to give the maximum twitch(More)
In order to increase the therapeutic effect of doxorubicin (DOX) on bone metastases, a multifunctional micelle was developed by combining pH-sensitive characteristics with bone active targeting capacity. The DOX loaded micelle was self-assembled by using doxorubicin-poly (ethylene glycol)-alendronate (DOX-hyd-PEG-ALN) as an amphiphilic material. The size(More)
—In our previous work, we reported a system that monitors an intersection using a network of horizontal laser scanners. This paper focuses on an algorithm for moving-object detection and tracking, given a sequence of distributed laser scan data of an intersection. The goal is to detect each moving object that enters the intersection; estimate state(More)
— It becomes a well-known technology that a low-level map of complex environment containing 3D laser points can be generated using a robot with laser scanners. Given a cloud of 3D laser points of an urban scene, this paper proposes a method for locating the objects of interest, e.g. traffic signs or road lamps, by computing object-based saliency.
