Advanced feature extraction algorithms for automatic fingerprint recognition systems
Fingerprint identification is commonly used in authentication and forensic applications and is by far the most common biometric modality in use today. We have developed several novel image processing routines to address ...
Automated multi-parametric sorting of micron-sized particles via multi-trap laser tweezers
The capabilities of laser tweezers have rapidly expanded since the first demonstration by Ashkin and co-workers in 1970 of the ability to trap particles using optical energy. Laser tweezers have been used to measure ...
Improving materials for thermal interface and electrical conduction by using carbon
Thermally and electrically conductive materials are needed in electronic packaging for heat dissipation and electrical interconnection respectively. Carbon is both thermally and electrically conductive, though it is less ...
Simultaneous trajectory tracking and stiffness control of cable driven parallel manipulator
Cable actuated parallel manipulators, also called cable robots, share many features in common with traditional parallel manipulators. However, such systems additionally feature considerably large workspace, large payload ...
A Kalman filter approach to model-error control synthesis
A new advancement in the model-error control synthesis approach, a robust control scheme for nonlinear systems, is presented. The traditional model-error control synthesis approach utilizes an optimal real-time estimator ...
An efficient implementation of BEM for transient analyses of thermomechanics and soil consolidation
The focus of this dissertation is on the efficient implementation of BEM for transient analyses of linear and nonlinear thermomechanics and soil consolidation. Based on the integration based boundary convolution method, a ...
Individual difference in aggressive driving and navigation task
2D:4D of the finger is one index of the individual difference. 2D:4D correlates with various traits linked to sex hormones. A low value of 2D:4D indicates high in testosterone and low in estrogen and is characteristic of ...
Conceptual spaces as a modeling system for Information Fusion
In the world of Information Fusion, there are many algorithms and techniques utilized to help understand situations occurring within a user system. Traditionally these mathematical models follow either a Symbolic-type ...
Complexity measures and congestion issues in wireless sensor networks
This work investigates how the values of network metrics affect congestion in wireless ad-hoc networks. The metrics considered in this work are average path length, average degree, clustering coefficient, and off-diagonal ...
