The Yangtze River dolphin or baiji (Lipotes vexillifer), an obligate freshwater odontocete known only from the middle-lower Yangtze River system and neighbouring Qiantang River in eastern China, has long been recognized as one of the world's rarest and most threatened mammal species. The status of the baiji has not been investigated since the late 1990s,(More)
This paper describes a vision-based obstacle detection system for Unmanned Surface Vehicle (USV) towards the aim of real-time and high performance obstacle detection on the sea surface. By using both the monocular and stereo vision methods, the system offers the capacity of detecting and locating multiple obstacles in the range from 30 to 100 meters for(More)
SVC (Scalable Video Coding) is designed to adapt to heterogeneous networks and various terminal devices. This paper presents an encryption scheme for SVC bitstreams which retains the valuable scalability properties of SVC. To this end, we explore PACSI (Payload Content Scalability Information) and RTP (Real-time Transport Protocol) payload format such that(More)
Herein, we report a successful application of molecular modeling techniques to design two novel peptides with cytotoxicity on tumor cells. First, the interactions between the nuclear transport factor 2 (NTF2)-like domain of G3BP and the SH3 domain of RasGAP were studied by a well-designed protocol, which combines homology modeling, protein/protein docking,(More)
This paper presents a novel Multi-message Ciphertext Policy Attribute-Based Encryption (MCP-ABE) technique, and employs the MCP-ABE to design an access control scheme for sharing scalable media based on data consumers’ attributes (e.g., age, nationality, or gender) rather than an explicit list of the consumers’ names. The scheme is efficient and flexible(More)
BACKGROUND As the sole freshwater subspecies of finless porpoise (Neophocaena phocaenoides), the Yangtze finless porpoise (N. p. asiaeorientalis) lives only in the middle and lower reaches of the Yangtze River and its appended Poyang and Dongting Lakes. As a result of human activity on the river, including over and illegal fishing, pollution, transportation(More)
This paper describes a secure and synthesis ophthalmology telemedicine system, referred to as TeleOph. Under a Secure Socket Layer (SSL) channel, patient prerecorded data can be safely transferred via the Internet. With encrypted videoconference and white-board, the system not only supports hospital-to-clinic consultation, but also supplies(More)
The paper describes a multi-screen real-time ophthalmology telemedicine system between a clinic and a hospital, referred to as TeleOph. TeleOph aims to mimic face-to-face consultation over public Internet network. It automatically connects still cameras and video cameras, and takes samples of pictures and videos respectively for remote consultation.(More)
Taking advantage of the inter-layer prediction technique used in H.264/scalable video coding (H.264/SVC), in this paper we propose an efficient block-based encryption scheme (BBES) for encrypting H.264/SVC enhancement layers (ELs). BBES operates in three modes, namely, Intra-MB mode, Group-MB mode and 4Group-MB mode. All the three modes are effective in(More)
