A new hierarchical software architecture towards safety-critical aspects of a drone system

A new hierarchical software architecture is proposed to improve the safety and reliability of a safety-critical drone system from the perspective of its source code. The proposed architecture uses formal verification methods to ensure that the implementation of each module satisfies its expected design specification, so that it prevents a drone from crashing due to unexpected...

Accurate Method for Picking Up the First Arrival Time of Microseismic Signals Based on Entropy Theory

The entropy method describes the change in the signal state from a macroscopic angle and weakens the interference generated by random noise. From the angle of chaos, which describes the first arrival of microseismic signals, it predicts the trend of noise entropy based on the grey theory. The results indicate that the entropy method is sensitive to amplitude, frequency, and...

Georeferencing places from collective human descriptions using place graphs

Place descriptions in everyday communication or in online text provide a rich source of spatial knowledge about places. Such descriptions typically consist of references to places and spatial relationships between them. An important step to utilize such knowledge in information systems is georeferencing the referred places. Beside place name disambiguation, another challenge is...

Phylogeny and taxonomy of three new Ctenomyces (Arthrodermataceae, Onygenales) species from China

Twelve Ctenomyces (Arthrodermataceae, Onygenales) strains were obtained and identified during a survey of keratinophilic fungi in soils from China. We used molecular identification combined with morphological evidence to delimit species, circumscribing five species in the genus. Three new species are herein described: C. albus sp. nov., C. obovatus sp. nov. and C. peltricolor sp...

Housing Sulfur in Polymer Composite Frameworks for Li–S Batteries

Extensive efforts have been devoted to the design of micro-, nano-, and/or molecular structures of sulfur hosts to address the challenges of lithium–sulfur (Li–S) batteries, yet comparatively little research has been carried out on the binders in Li–S batteries. Herein, we systematically review the polymer composite frameworks that confine the sulfur within the sulfur electrode...

Fine mapping of a panicle blast resistance gene Pb-bd1 in Japonica landrace Bodao and its application in rice breeding

BackgroundRice blast caused by Magnaporthe oryzae is the most devastating disease in rice production. Compared with seedling blast, panicle blast is considered to be more destructive, which can occur without being preceded by severe seedling blast. However, panicle blast resistance research is rarely reported.ResultsBodao, a japonica landrace from Taihu Lake region, showed a high...

Automated segmentation of trabecular and cortical bone from proton density weighted MRI of the knee

Patient-specific implant design and pre- and intra-operative planning is becoming increasingly important in the orthopaedic field. For clinical feasibility of these techniques, fast and accurate segmentation of bone structures from MRI is essential. However, manual segmentation is time intensive and subject to inter- and intra-observer variation. The challenge in developing...

Morphometric analysis of sinkholes using a semi-automatic approach in Zhijin County, China

Efficient detection and analysis of natural sinkholes is essential for human sustainability in karst area. In this work, two methodologies were applied to detect and quantify natural sinkholes in southwest China, using of DEMs derived from ASTER and SRTM remote sensing images and topographic maps. The methodologies were a semi-automatic approach and a field-based approach. The...

The Extended Finite Element Method for Dynamic Fractures

A method for modelling arbitrary growth of dynamic cracks without remeshing is presented. The method is based on a local partition of unity. It is combined with level sets, so that the discontinuities can be represented entirely in terms of nodal data. This leads to a simple method with clean data structures that can easily be incorporated in general purpose software. Results for...

IoT in Radiology: Using Raspberry Pi to Automatically Log Telephone Calls in the Reading Room

The work environment for medical imaging such as distractions, ergonomics, distance, temperature, humidity, and lighting conditions generates a paucity of data and is difficult to analyze. The emergence of Internet of Things (IoT) with decreasing cost of single-board computers like Raspberry Pi makes creating customized hardware to collect data from the clinical environment...

An actin-binding protein ESPN is an independent prognosticator and regulates cell growth for esophageal squamous cell carcinoma

ESPN (Espin), an actin filament-binding protein, plays an important role in regulating the organization, dimensions, dynamics, and signaling capacities of the actin filament-rich, microvillus-type specializations that mediate sensory transduction in various mechanosensory and chemosensory cells. Recent few studies show that ESPN regulates metastasis and cell proliferation in...

Further Results on Reachable Set Bounding for Discrete-Time System with Time-Varying Delay and Bounded Disturbance Inputs

This paper investigates the problem of reachable set bounding for discrete-time system with time-varying delay and bounded disturbance inputs. Together with a new Lyapunov-Krasovskii functional, discrete Wirtinger-based inequality, and reciprocally convex approach, sufficient conditions are derived to find an ellipsoid to bound the reachable sets of discrete-time delayed system...
