Place recognition using batlike sonar

Dieter Vanderelst, Jan Steckel, Andre Boen, Herbert Peremans, Marc W Holderied
2016 eLife  
In this paper, we propose template based place recognition might underlie sonar-based navigation in bats.  ...  Based on the results presented, we conclude that the proposed echo signatures satisfy both criteria.  ...  We thank Sam Riches (University of Bristol) for his help in collecting data at the Royal Park site.  ...

A design methodology for 2D sparse NDE arrays using an efficient implementation of refracted-ray TFM

Jerzy Dziewierz, Timothy Lardner, Anthony Gachagan
2013 2013 IEEE International Ultrasonics Symposium (IUS)  
Recent advances in the field of tissue engineering include the engineering of skin, cartilage, and bladder, all of which are relatively thin tissues that can rely on diffusion for the delivery of oxygen  ...  One of these technologies takes advantage of the acoustic radiation forces associated with ultrasound standing wave fields to spatially pattern cells within collagen-based hydrogels.  ...  Four anatomic landmarks are computed automatically based on the RCTL tracking results.  ...

Intrinsic motivation mecanisms for incremental learning of visual saliency

Celine Craye, Celine
2017 unpublished
We more specifically study the literature on visual attention, object localization in computer vision and machine learning techniques.  ...  Chapter 3 -Visual attention, object localization and learning This bibliographic chapter covers the state-of-the-art of the fields related to our proposed approach.  ...  From this sequence, we build a navigation graph based on the technique described in Section 7.4.3.  ... 

Non-Contact Evaluation Methods for Infrastructure Condition Assessment

Sattar Dorafshan
In this dissertation two aspects of non-contact methods are explored: inspections using unmanned aerial systems (UASs), and conditions assessment using image processing and machine learning techniques.  ...  Inspection, monitoring, and maintenance of these infrastructure in the traditional manner can be expensive, dangerous, time-consuming, and tied to human judgment (the inspector).  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENTS The authors extend their gratitude to: Matt Farrar, Alan Buerig, and Don Gorely at Idaho Transportation Department (ITD) for providing the fatigue crack specimen and allowing inspection of  ...
