Analysis of 2D intrinsic mode function

2009 International Conference on Test and Measurement, 2009

The definition of 2D IMF is very important for bidimensional empirical mode decomposition of images. V. Vatchev analyzed 1D IMF in his doctoral dissertation, and introduced the concept of weak-IMF which point out that the solution of Sturm-Liouville equations can be regarded as 1D weak-IMF. In this paper we try to give the definition of 2D IMF and investigate the ...


Nonlinear best Chebyshev approximations and splines

MMET '96. VIth International Conference on Mathematical Methods in Electromagnetic Theory. Proceedings, 1996

The necessity of using parametric nonlinear expressions and splines arises because real physical processes are described by many different analytical dependencies. The classic technique of finding the best Chebyshev approximation is also based on nonlinear approximations. But such approximations are not always possible. The author formulates a theorem that allows one to establish the condition of existence of the best ...


Coordinate transformation in 3D image matching by a physics based method-elastic body splines

Proceedings of International Symposium on Computer Vision - ISCV, 1995

Any image matching scheme that is based on landmarks requires a coordinate transformation that maps landmark locations in one image to corresponding locations in a second image. The development of an approach to this coordinate transformation, called the elastic body spline (EBS), is outlined. The spline is used to match 3D magnetic resonance images (MRIs) of the breast that are ...


Robust performance analysis for parameter dependent systems using tensor product splines

Proceedings of the 37th IEEE Conference on Decision and Control (Cat. No.98CH36171), 1998

We show that tensor product splines form a suitable tool for numerical construction of parameter dependent Lyapunov functions to test the robust performance for systems that depend on time-varying parameters. Based on the excellent approximation power of this class of multivariate splines, we show how it is possible to avoid conservatism in the corresponding robust performance analysis test.

    Any image matching scheme that is based on landmarks requires a coordinate transformation that maps landmark locations in one image to corresponding locations in a second image. The development of an approach to this coordinate transformation, called the elastic body spline (EBS), is outlined. The spline is used to match 3D magnetic resonance images (MRIs) of the breast that are used in the diagnosis and evaluation of breast cancer. The elastic body spline is compared to an affine transformation and the thin plate spline. For breast MRIs, the EBS is found to have superior performance as assessed by several measures of the similarity of the matched images.

  • Trajectory fitting with smoothing splines using velocity information

    We present a derivation for a spline smoother which takes into account local velocity information. This smoother is well suited for finding a best-fit trajectory from multiple example trajectories and is thus useful in applications such as programming by demonstration and online gesture recognition for teleoperation. Currently available smoothers are designed to consider only position information and not local velocity information, and are thus less suited for smoothing trajectories over time of dynamic systems.

  • Real-time animation of a virtual arm and its collisions with a virtual environment

    Summary form only given, as follows. Realistic rendering of the virtual body limb movements represents one of the most interesting research areas for the design and implementation of the component of a virtual environment system. The paper addresses the description of a complete experimental virtual environment system including real time graphical rendering of upper limb movements as well as force feedback capabilities to the user. The virtual arm and hand are modeled with a set of 40 nonuniform B splines: mono and multiprocessor algorithms have been used in order to convert parametric surfaces in polygon meshes. Upper limb movements are recorded by means of joint rotation sensors (optical encoders) integrated on a 7 degrees of freedom mechanical structure wrapping up the whole arm and possessing the same joint rotation axes. The same mechanical structure is devoted to replicate virtual contact forces to the user's hand. Data from joint rotation sensors are used to move the control points of the parametric surfaces. In this way, a realistic representation of the shape of the virtual hand and arm, including the deformation of the skin, has been empirically obtained. Collision detection algorithms as well as modules for the modeling of physically based behavior of the virtual hand in contact with virtual objects have been developed. Results of experimental tests aimed at verifying the performances in terms of frame rates and force feedback capabilities during practical manipulative and exploratory tasks of virtual objects are presented.

  • Parallel boxing in B-spline intersection

    A modified formulation of oriented boxing called oriented slab boxing is presented. It almost doubles the speed of the oriented boxing component in B-spline intersection. The method used to accelerate B-spline intersection includes algorithmic improvements and parallelization of the algorithm at different levels of granularity to find an optimum solution on a network of parallel processors. The software testbed is linked to a B-spline-based library, which is a prototype of what may be used in an actual engineering design environment. A parallel implementation of the algorithm on a network of three processors achieves an additional twofold improvement in speed.<<ETX>>

  • 60 GHz short range planar RSS localization

    Planar received signal strength (RSS) localization at 60.5 GHz is investigated and presented. For the first time, short range RSS localization at 60 GHz is demonstrated. The RSS between the transmitter and receiver is first measured on various base materials such as metal, wood and millimetre wave (mm-wave) absorber. RSS measurements are also performed with the transmitters and receiver elevated 20 cm above the base. It is observed that the RSS measurement on the mm-wave absorber and with the 20 cm elevation have the least multipath effects and are suitable for planar localization using RSS. Splines are fitted to the measured data and implemented in the localization algorithm for position estimation. By using either mm-wave absorber or elevating the transmitters and receiver, the mean localization error obtained for both cases is 3 cm.

  • Stabilization of a planar prismatic-prismatic-revolute manipulator based on an energy approach

    The paper presents the control of an underactuated planar robot, with two prismatic and one revolute joints. We propose a controller based on an energy approach and the passivity properties of the system. The stabilization algorithm proposed is related to the works of J. Collado et al. (2000), I. Fantoni et al. (1999; 2000) and R. Lozano et al. (2000), in which the total energy of the systems is used in the control of underactuated manipulators. The passivity properties of the system are analyzed and we use an energy-based approach to establish the proposed control law. The control algorithm as well as the convergence analysis are based on Lyapunov theory and LaSalle's invariance theorem. The performance of the proposed control law is shown in simulation.
