Point Cloud based Hierarchical Deep Odometry Estimation [article]

Farzan Erlik Nowruzi, Dhanvin Kolhatkar, Prince Kapoor, Robert Laganiere
2021 arXiv   pre-print
Processing point clouds using deep neural networks is still a challenging task. Most existing models focus on object detection and registration with deep neural networks using point clouds. In this paper, we propose a deep model that learns to estimate odometry in driving scenarios using point cloud data. The proposed model consumes raw point clouds in order to extract frame-to-frame odometry estimation through a hierarchical model architecture. Also, a local bundle adjustment variation of this

Deep Open Space Segmentation using Automotive Radar [article]

Farzan Erlik Nowruzi, Dhanvin Kolhatkar, Prince Kapoor, Fahed Al Hassanat, Elnaz Jahani Heravi, Robert Laganiere, Julien Rebut, Waqas Malik
2020 arXiv   pre-print
In this work, we propose the use of radar with advanced deep segmentation models to identify open space in parking scenarios. A publically available dataset of radar observations called SCORP was collected. Deep models are evaluated with various radar input representations. Our proposed approach achieves low memory usage and real-time processing speeds, and is thus very well suited for embedded deployment.

PolarNet: Accelerated Deep Open Space Segmentation Using Automotive Radar in Polar Domain [article]

Farzan Erlik Nowruzi, Dhanvin Kolhatkar, Prince Kapoor, Elnaz Jahani Heravi, Fahed Al Hassanat, Robert Laganiere, Julien Rebut, Waqas Malik
2021 arXiv   pre-print
Camera and Lidar processing have been revolutionized with the rapid development of deep learning model architectures. Automotive radar is one of the crucial elements of automated driver assistance and autonomous driving systems. Radar still relies on traditional signal processing techniques, unlike camera and Lidar based methods. We believe this is the missing link to achieve the most robust perception system. Identifying drivable space and occupied space is the first step in any autonomous

In this paper, we propose PolarNet, a deep neural model to process radar information in polar domain for open space segmentation. We explore various input-output representations. Our experiments show that PolarNet is a effective way to process radar data that achieves state-of-the-art performance and processing speeds while maintaining a compact size.

EMERGING ROLE OF NRF2 AS A POTENTIAL THERAPEUTIC TARGET FOR CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASES

Gagandeep Singh Shergill, Pooja Sarotra, Prince Kadam, Sumir Kapoor, Arshbir Singh, Nishant Rana
2020 INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH  
Nuclear factor erythroid 2-like 2 (Nrf2) is a transcription factor playing a big part in dynamic control of the antioxidant and cytoprotective gene system via activating the antioxidant response element (ARE) expression. Several Nrf2-targeted enzymes are essential for cardiovascular disease pathogenesis and are closely correlated with atherosclerosis, myocardial ischemia, diabetic cardiomyopathy, and congestive heart failure; moreover, they function as sensitive and precise markers to represent

Activation of Nrf2 offers cardioprotection by synchronized up-regulation of the processes of antioxidative, anti-inflammatory, and autophagy. Thus, it may be worth examining the possible role of the Nrf2 signaling in cardioprotection. This review will encapsulate the present information about the structure, regulation, and participation of Nrf2 in various cardiovascular disorders and related complications like diabetic cardiomyopathy, hypertension, and obesity. A particular focus is put on Nrf2 inducers, which are potentially attractive therapeutic candidates for several cardiovascular disorders.

CT SCAN BASED EVALUATION OF SPLENIC INDEX IN PATIENTS FROM LUCKNOW AND ADJOINING AREAS

Prince Kapoor, Vineeta Tewari, PK Sharma, Mumal Nagwani, Tahsin Munsif, Geetanjali Srivastava, Sonia Jaiswal, Archana Srivastava
2018 Journal of Anatomical Sciences  
The Indian subcontinent is an endemic zone for diseases like malaria and filaria which alter the size of spleen to a variable extent. In order to identify and examine the spleen accurately, the modes of investigation that are at our disposal are Ultrasonography, Computerised Tomography, Magnetic Resonance Imaging and Radionuclide Scan. Linear dimensions are of limited use as a guide to normal splenic size on CT because the spleen is irregular in shape and is obliquely oriented within the left

The objective of the present study was to generate normative data of splenic index which could be used as a research and clinical tool. Material & Methods: It was an open randomized study carried out on 80 adults between 20 to 70 years of age. Spleen was identified in each transverse, coronal and sagittal section image of helical CT scan. Results: The average splenic index, calculated as a product of the three measured linear dimensions of spleen i.e. length, breadth and thickness, in males was 369.89 cm³ and in females 298.61 cm³. The mean splenic index was calculated as 342.62 cm³. Conclusion: The results can be used for evaluating patients with suspected splenomegaly, in certain clinical situations where objective measurement of splenic dimensions and comparison with normal values is required, and in drafting of government policies and programs related to malaria and filaria control where these normal values of splenic index help by identifying populations more susceptible to such infections.

POTENTIAL HEALTH HAZARDS OF FORMALDEHYDE USAGE IN GROSS ANATOMY DISSECTION HALL ON STUDENTS AND INSTRUCTORS

Prince Kapoor, P. K. Sharma
2020 Era s journal of medical research  
Formaldehyde is the most frequently used chemical for embalming in dissection halls and tissue fixation in histopathological laboratories. Exposure to formalin by direct contact or in vapourised form by inhalation can produce various local and/or systemic toxic effects in students, instructors and staff working in dissection rooms. Its toxicity ranges from local irritation and allergic reactions to congenital defects and certain malignancies. This account highlights these adverse effects on

For the last few decades, the immunochromatographic assay has been used for the rapid detection of biological markers in infectious diseases in humans and animals The assay, also known as lateral flow assay, is utilized for the detection of antigen or antibody in human infectious diseases. There are a series of steps involved in the development of these immuno-chromatographic test kits, from gold nano colloids preparation to nitrocellulose membrane coating (NCM). These tests are mostly used for

Herein, the study was performed on a malaria antigen test kit. Several studies have reported the use of gold nanoparticles (AuNPs) with varying diameters and its binding with various concentrations of protein in order to optimize tests. However, none of these studies have reported how to fix (improve) test zone band intensity (color), if different sized AuNPs were synthesized during a reaction and when conjugated equally with same amount of protein. Herein, different AuNPs with average diameter ranging from 10 nm to 50 nm were prepared and conjugated equally with protein concentration of 150 µg/mL with KD = 1.0 × 10−3. Afterwards, the developed kits' test zone band intensity for all different sizes AuNPs was fixed to the same band level (high) by utilization of an ultraviolet-visible spectrophotometer. The study found that the same optical density (OD) has the same test zone band intensity irrespective of AuNP size. This study also illustrates the use of absorption maxima (λ max) techniques to characterize AuNPs and to prevent wastage of protein while developing immunochromatographic test kits.

2020 Journal of Clinical Microbiology  
A total of 1200 serum samples that were tested for SARS-CoV-2 IgG antibody using the Abbott Architect immunoassay targeting the nucleocapsid protein were run in 3 SARS-CoV-2 IgG immunoassays targeting spike proteins (DiaSorin Liaison, Ortho VITROS, and Euroimmun). Consensus-positive and consensus-negative interpretations were defined as qualitative agreement in at least 3 of the 4 assays. Agreement of the 4 individual assays with a consensus-negative interpretation (N=610) ranged from 96.7% to

Laboratory-developed inhibition assays were utilized to evaluate 49 consensus-negative samples positive in only one assay; true-positive reactivity was confirmed in only 2 of these 49 (4%) samples. These findings demonstrate very high levels of agreement among 4 SARS-CoV-2 IgG assays authorized for emergency use, regardless of antigen target or assay format. Although false-positive reactivity was identified, its occurrence was rare (no more than 1.7% of samples for a given assay).
