This paper investigates the problem of stability analysis for a class of discrete-time stochastic neural networks (DSNNs) with time-varying delays. In the concerned model, stochastic disturbances are described by a Brownian motion, and time-varying delay dðkÞ satisfies dmrdðkÞrdM . Based on the delay partitioning idea and some inequalities, a new stability(More)
In this paper, we describe a novel algorithm for unsupervised segmentation of images with low depth of field (DOF). First of all, a multi-scale reblurring model is used to detect the object of interest (OOI) in saliency space. Then, to determine the boundary of OOI, an active contour model based on hybrid energy function is proposed. In this model, a global(More)
Floating wind turbine will suffer from more fatigue and ultimate loads compared with fixed-bottom installation due to its floating foundation, while structural control offers a possible solution for direct load reduction. This paper deals with the modelling and parameter tuning of a spar-type floating wind turbine with a tuned mass damper (TMD) installed in(More)
Iris authentication is one of the most successful applications in video analysis and image processing. In this paper, several novel approaches are proposed to improve the overall performance of iris recognition systems. First, this paper proposes a new eyelash detection algorithm based on directional filters, which achieves a low rate of eyelash(More)
The objective of this paper is to present the state of art in iris indexing. The potential raise of accurateness along with enhanced robustness beside forgeries makes in fact iris recognition a promising field for research. The performance of a biometric system is evaluated based on the retrieval time and error rate which are dependent on the size of the(More)
Biometrics authentication is the only accurate solution for personal identification and security problems. Password incorrect use and misapplication, intentional and inadvertent is a gaping hole in security. These results are mainly occurs due to Poor human judgment, carelessness and due to tactlessness. Biometric removes all these types of security(More)
This paper deals with the modeling and parameter tuning of a spar-type floating wind turbine with a tuned mass damper (TMD) installed in nacelle. Firstly, a mathematical model for the system surge-heave-pitch motion is established based on first principles. Secondly, different parameter tuning methods are adopted to find the optimal TMD parameters for load(More)
This paper addresses the problem of guaranteed cost fault-tolerant output tracking control against actuator faults for a flexible air-breathing hypersonic vehicle. Firstly, using the parameters of the trim condition, a linearized model is established around the trim point for a nonlinear, dynamically coupled simulation model. Secondly, the control objective(More)
This article is mainly focused on a method for stabilizing the position of an incident laser beam position by using a closed-loop fast steering mirror system. According to the input and output data, a model for the fast steering mirror system is established, which is utilized for the closed-loop controller. In the experiment, the spot centroid position,(More)
The biometric system is based on human's behavioral and physical characteristics. Among all of these, iris has unique structure, higher accuracy and it can remain stable over a person's life. Iris recognition is the method by which system recognize a person by their unique identical feature found in the eye. Iris recognition technology includes(More)
