In this paper, we present our initial experiments to collect a database for studying mobile robot olfaction. Mobile robots with olfactory sensing capabilities are expected to be used in various applications including gas distribution mapping and gas source localization. Owing to the turbulent nature of the airflow field and the gas distribution, these(More)
Halogen-doped carbon nanoparticles (CNPs) were synthesized by a simple one-step solution plasma process at room temperature using a mixture of benzene (C6H6) and organics containing halogen atoms as the precursors (i.e., hexafluorobenzene (C6F6), hexachlorobenzene (C6Cl6), and hexabromobenzene (C6Br6)). The experimental results demonstrated that halogen(More)
In JPEG2000 coding, SNR scalability on the basis of regions of interests (ROI) is considered as one of the main features. However, the image quality of the background region is severely degraded in this case. This paper proposes an image control technique for ROI coding with consideration of SNR scalability by separating the ROI coding and the rate-control(More)
Humans can generate a complex trajectory by imitating the movements of others. A method for learning complex sequential movements that utilizes via-point representation is proposed. However, the proposed algorithm for estimating a set of via-points from complex movement does not involve such a learning process as trial and error. Instead, it finds the(More)
The photoswitching and competitive processes of the referent photochromic diarylethene derivative 1,2-bis(2,4-dimethyl-5-phenyl-3-thienyl)perfluorocyclopentene (DTE) and a novel bridged analog DTE-m5 have been investigated by state-of-the-art TD-DFT calculations and ultrafast spectroscopy supported by advanced chemometric data treatments. Focusing on DTE,(More)
