83. A Robust Indoor/Outdoor Navigation Filter Fusing Data from Vision and Magneto-Inertial Measurement Unit (PubMed)

A Robust Indoor/Outdoor Navigation Filter Fusing Data from Vision and Magneto-Inertial Measurement Unit Visual-inertial Navigation Systems (VINS) are nowadays used for robotic or augmented reality applications. They aim to compute the motion of the robot or the pedestrian in an environment that is unknown and does not have specific localization infrastructure. Because of the low quality of inertial sensors that can be used reasonably for these two applications, state of the art VINS rely (...) -grade camera with our custom MIMU (Magneto-inertial Measurment Unit) sensor. The fused estimate demonstrates higher robustness compared to pure VINS estimate, specially in areas where vision is non informative. These results could ultimately increase the working domain of mobile augmented reality systems.

85. Behavioral Dynamics in Swimming: The Appropriate Use of Inertial Measurement Units (PubMed)

Behavioral Dynamics in Swimming: The Appropriate Use of Inertial Measurement Units Motor control in swimming can be analyzed using low- and high-order parameters of behavior. Low-order parameters generally refer to the superficial aspects of movement (i.e., position, velocity, acceleration), whereas high-order parameters capture the dynamics of movement coordination. To assess human aquatic behavior, both types have usually been investigated with multi-camera systems, as they offer high three (...) -dimensional spatial accuracy. Research in ecological dynamics has shown that movement system variability can be viewed as a functional property of skilled performers, helping them adapt their movements to the surrounding constraints. Yet to determine the variability of swimming behavior, a large number of stroke cycles (i.e., inter-cyclic variability) has to be analyzed, which is impossible with camera-based systems as they simply record behaviors over restricted volumes of water.

87. Measuring Maternal Behaviors in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (PubMed)

Measuring Maternal Behaviors in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit One of the most important considerations in designing clinical infant research studies is the selection of reliable and valid measurement procedures. Few measures of caregiver-child interactions have been studied with newborns, particularly premature infants. The main objective of this study was to examine psychometric properties of the NICHD Mother-Child Interaction Qualitative Ratings in a sample of premature infants (...) and their mothers to evaluate its use in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). Mother-baby dyads (N=24) were videotaped in a 10-minute interaction in the NICU. Nine raters independently assessed dyadic interactions using the NICHD Mother-Child Interaction Qualitative Ratings in a fully-crossed research design. Rater reliability was strong for mother and infant ratings, (.76 to .94). Scores yielded normal distributions for maternal sensitivity, positive regard, and flatness of affect and skewed distributions

88. A 7.4 ps FPGA-Based TDC with a 1024-Unit Measurement Matrix (PubMed)

A 7.4 ps FPGA-Based TDC with a 1024-Unit Measurement Matrix In this paper, a high-resolution time-to-digital converter (TDC) based on a field programmable gate array (FPGA) device is proposed and tested. During the implementation, a new architecture of TDC is proposed which consists of a measurement matrix with 1024 units. The utilization of routing resources as the delay elements distinguishes the proposed design from other existing designs, which contributes most to the device insensitivity (...) to variations of temperature and voltage. Experimental results suggest that the measurement resolution is 7.4 ps, and the INL (integral nonlinearity) and DNL (differential nonlinearity) are 11.6 ps and 5.5 ps, which indicates that the proposed TDC offers high performance among the available TDCs. Benefitting from the FPGA platform, the proposed TDC has superiorities in easy implementation, low cost, and short development time.

Calibration of night vision goggles: an SI-units-based gain measurement technique A gain measurement technique for the calibration of night vision goggles (NVG) is proposed and evaluated. This technique is based on the radiance measurements at the input and output of the NVG. In contrast to the old definition, which uses a non-International System of Units (SI) traceable luminance, the "equivalent luminance unit," the suggested technique utilizes the radiance quantities that are traceable (...) to the SI units through National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) standards. Due to the implementation of the scaling coefficients originating from the NVG spectral responsivities, the same NVG gain is expected within both techniques. The suggested method was evaluated at the NIST night vision calibration facility and the experimental data were compared to the results obtained with a commercial NVG test set. The comparison of the radiometric quantities obtained using the two different
