Biped robots present higher mobility than four-wheeled robots that many researches have discussed the walking types and the standard of stability. From the aspect of general robot kinematics, this study tends to analyze the gait behavior of biped walking robots and further study each joint locomotion trajectory compared with cycloid spline and human walking. The purpose of this paper is to analyze gait behavior of a biped robot and motion trajectory of each foot joint. Trajectory planning

Finally, the Bioloid biped robot is programmed to walk smoothly and generate each joint locomotion trajectory compared with cycloid spline and human walking. The experimental results show that if robot control can be improved like human walking, i.e., the height variation in z-direction of hip joint trajectory approximating human walking, the waist or hip trajectories can be treated as a series of moving base frames.

Purpose. This study investigated the antilingula and its related landmarks, the mandibular rami, by using cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT). Methods. CBCT images of 37 patients (74 sides of the mandibular ramus) were collected. The landmarks of antilingula (AntiL), anterior ramus (A), posterior ramus (P), superior ramus (S), and inferior ramus (I) were identified. The distances (A-AntiL, P-AntiL, S-AntiL, and I-AntiL) were statistically evaluated according to gender, side (right and left),

The distance from the antilingula to the anterior (A-AntiL) border of the ramus was significantly longer on the right side (14.69 mm) than on the left side (13.97 mm). Male patients had longer AntiL-P, AntiL-I, and S-I distances (18.96, 40.07, and 54.94 mm, respectively) than did female patients (16.66, 35, and 47.54 mm, respectively). Regarding skeletal patterns, the classes can be ordered as follows in terms of the measurements: class III>class II>class I. However, the differences between the classes were nonsignificant. Pearson correlation analysis revealed that gender and S-I distance were strongly correlated ( r = 0.667 ); specifically, male patients had a longer S-I distance. A-AntiL and A-P also exhibited a strong correlation ( r = 0.796 ). Conclusion. Antilingula-related distances did not differ between skeletal patterns. Among antilingula-related variables, A-AntiL could serve as a favorable measuring point during operation.

HoMM: Higher-order Moment Matching for Unsupervised Domain Adaptation [article]

Chao Chen, Zhihang Fu, Zhihong Chen, Sheng Jin, Zhaowei Cheng, Xinyu Jin, Xian-Sheng Hua
2019 arXiv   pre-print
Minimizing the discrepancy of feature distributions between different domains is one of the most promising directions in unsupervised domain adaptation. From the perspective of distribution matching, most existing discrepancy-based methods are designed to match the second-order or lower statistics, which however, have limited expression of statistical characteristic for non-Gaussian distributions. In this work, we explore the benefits of using higher-order statistics (mainly refer to
more » ... and fourth-order statistics) for domain matching. We propose a Higher-order Moment Matching (HoMM) method, and further extend the HoMM into reproducing kernel Hilbert spaces (RKHS). In particular, our proposed HoMM can perform arbitrary-order moment tensor matching, we show that the first-order HoMM is equivalent to Maximum Mean Discrepancy (MMD) and the second-order HoMM is equivalent to Correlation Alignment (CORAL). Moreover, the third-order and the fourth-order moment tensor matching are expected to perform comprehensive domain alignment as higher-order statistics can approximate more complex, non-Gaussian distributions. Besides, we also exploit the pseudo-labeled target samples to learn discriminative representations in the target domain, which further improves the transfer performance. Extensive experiments are conducted, showing that our proposed HoMM consistently outperforms the existing moment matching methods by a large margin. Codes are available at

Nai-Sheng Syu, Yu-Sheng Chen, Yung-Yu Chuang
2018 arXiv   pre-print
This paper presents a comprehensive study of applying the convolutional neural network (CNN) to solving the demosaicing problem. The paper presents two CNN models that learn end-to-end mappings between the mosaic samples and the original image patches with full information. In the case the Bayer color filter array (CFA) is used, an evaluation with ten competitive methods on popular benchmarks confirms that the data-driven, automatically learned features by the CNN models are very effective.

It is also demonstrated that the CNN model can perform joint denoising and demosaicing. The CNN model is very flexible and can be easily adopted for demosaicing with any CFA design. We train CNN models for demosaicing with three different CFAs and obtain better results than existing methods. With the great flexibility to be coupled with any CFA, we present the first data-driven joint optimization of the CFA design and the demosaicing method using CNN. Experiments show that the combination of the automatically discovered CFA pattern and the automatically devised demosaicing method significantly outperforms the current best demosaicing results. Visual comparisons confirm that the proposed methods reduce more visual artifacts than existing methods. Finally, we show that the CNN model is also effective for the more general demosaicing problem with spatially varying exposure and color and can be used for taking images of higher dynamic ranges with a single shot. The proposed models and the thorough experiments together demonstrate that CNN is an effective and versatile tool for solving the demosaicing problem.

With the mature technology of wireless communications, the function of estimating the mobile station (MS) position has become essential. Suppressing the bias resulting from non-line-of-sight (NLSO) scenarios is the main issue for a wireless location network. The artificial bee colony (ABC) algorithm, based on the depiction of bee swarm's foraging characteristics, is widely applied to solve optimization problems in several fields. Based on three measurements of time-of-arrival (TOA), an

The ABC algorithm is adopted to locate the most precise MS location by minimizing the objective function value. The performance of the proposed positioning methods is verified under various error distributions through computer simulations. Meanwhile, the localization accuracy achieved by other existing methods is also investigated. According to the simulation results, accurate estimation of the MS position is derived and therefore the efficiency of the localization process is increased.

Recently, developed wearable devices utilize body fluids, such as sweat, saliva, or skin interstitial fluid, and electrochemical interactions to allow continuous physiological condition and disease monitoring for users. Among them, tear fluid has been widely utilized in the investigation of ocular diseases, diabetes, and even cancers, because of its easy accessibility, lower complexity, and minimal invasiveness. By determining the concentration change of analytes within the tear fluid, it would be possible to identify disease progression and allow patient-oriented therapies. Considering the emerging trend of tear-based biosensing technology, this review article aims to focus on an overview of the tear fluid as a detection medium for certain diseases, such as ocular disorders, diabetes, and cancer. In addition, the rise and application of minimally invasive detection and monitoring via integrated contact lens biosensors will also be addressed, in regards to their practicality and current developmental progress.

Kawasaki disease (KD) is a form of systemic vasculitis that generally occurs in children under 5 years old. Currently, KD is still diagnosed according to its clinical symptoms, including prolonged fever, skin rash, conjunctivitis, neck lymphadenopathy, palm erythema, and oral mucosa changes. Since KD is a type of inflammation without specific marker for diagnosis, we plan to profile the plasma antibodies by using E. coli proteome microarray and analyze the differences between KD and healthy

Plasmas were collected from KD patient before intravenous immunoglobulin treatment (KD1), at least 3 weeks after treatment (KD3), non-fever control (NC), and fever control (FC) children. The initial screening, which consisted of 20 KD1, 20 KD3, 20 NC, and 20 FC, were explored using E. coli proteome microarrays (~4200 unique proteins). About ~70 proteins were shown to have high accuracy, e.g., 0.78~0.92, with regard to separating KD1, KD3, NC, and FC. Those proteins were then purified to fabricate KD focus arrays for training (N = 20 each) and blind-testing (N = 20 each). It only took 125 pl of plasma, less than a drop of blood, in the focus array assays. The AUC scores for blind tests of KD1 vs. NC (17 protein markers), KD1 vs. FC (20 protein markers), KD3 vs. NC (9 protein markers), and KD1 vs. KD3 (6 protein markers) were 0. 84, 0.75, 0.99 and 0.98, respectively. 4 This study is the first to profile plasma antibodies in KD and demonstrate that an E. coli proteome microarray can screen differences among patients with KD, non-fever controls, and fever controls.

Hierarchical access control is an important and traditional problem in information security. In 2001, Wu et.al. proposed an elegant solution for hierarchical access control by the secure-filter. Jeng and Wang presented an improvement of Wu et. al.'s method by the ECC cryptosystem. However, secure-filter method is insecure in dynaminc access control. Lie, Hsu and Tripathy, Paul pointed out some secure leaks on the secure-filter and presented some improvements to eliminate these secure flaws. In

CA is a super security class (user) in our proposed method and the secure-filter of u_i in our solutions is a polynomial of degree n_i+1 in Z_p^*, f_i(x)=(x-h_i)(x-a_1)...(x-a_n_i)+L_l_i(K_i). Although the degree of our secure-filter is larger than others solutions, our solution is secure and efficient in dynamics access control.

2014 Kaohsiung Journal of Medical Sciences  
Primary mucinous carcinoma of the skin (PMCS) is a rare form of malignant neoplasm, occurring in approximately one case in every 150,000 specimens of cutaneous lesions [1] . Here, we present a case of PMCS of the breast. A 63-year-old woman suffered from an indurated nodule of less than 1 cm in size on her left breast. Ultrasonography and mammography revealed nonspecific findings. She underwent left partial mastectomy and sentinel lymph node dissection. Pathology revealed an unencapsulated

Thorough clinical investigation, sentinel nodes dissection, and imaging studies demonstrated the absence of regional lymph nodes or distant metastases and ruled out a primary cancer at any other site, and it was concluded that the tumor was primary. Neither relapse nor distal metastases were noted at 1 year and 6 months follow-up. PMCS is a rare form of malignant neoplasm deriving from the sweat glands or their germinal structures, and it affects men more than women. It tends to occur in the middle-aged or elderly (average 62.6 years, range 8e87 years). This tumor commonly arises in the head or neck (72%), followed by axilla (9%), vulva (4%), chest/abdominal wall (7%), neck (2%), extremity (2%), canthus (2%), groin (1%), and ear (1%) [2] . PMCS usually appears as a solitary, asymptomatic, slowgrowing subcutaneous or cutaneous nodule [2] . The color of the lesion may be tan, gray, blue, or brown [3] . The surface may be smooth, ulcerated, or crusted [2]. Our case showed no skin change. The histopathological appearance of PMCS is highly characteristic, notable for dermal islands of tumor
