The use of induction motors has been recently increasing in a variety of industrial sites, and they play a significant role. This has motivated that many researchers have studied on developing fault detection and classification systems of induction motors in order to reduce economical damage caused by their faults. To early identify induction motor faults, this paper effectively estimates spectral envelopes of each induction motor fault by utilizing a linear prediction coding (LPC) analysis technique and an expectation maximization (EM) algorithm. Moreover, this paper classifies induction motor faults into their corresponding categories by calculating Mahalanobis distance using the estimated spectral envelopes and finding the minimum distance. Experimental results show that the proposed approach yields higher classification accuracies than the state-of-the-art conventional approach for both noiseless and noisy environments for identifying the induction motor faults.

Woo, Young Woon ;
Journal of the Korea Society of Computer and Information, volume 19, issue 2, 2014, Pages 31~37
DOI : 10.9708/jksci.2014.19.2.031
In conventional methods for car navigational path detection using Hough transform, navigational path deviation of a car is decided in car navigational images with simple background. But in case of car navigational images having complex background with obstacles on the road, shadows, other cars, and so on, it is very difficult to detect navigational path because these obstacles obstruct correct detection of car navigational path. In this paper, I proposed an effective navigational path detection method having better performance than conventional navigational path detection methods using Hough transform only, and fuzzy binarization method and Canny mask are applied in the proposed method for the better performance. In order to evaluate the performance of the proposed method, I experimented with 20 car navigational images and verified the proposed method is more effective for detection of navigational path.
Implementation of a Non-Invasive Sensor System for Differentiating Human Motions on a Bed
Cho, Seung Ho ;
Journal of the Korea Society of Computer and Information, volume 19, issue 2, 2014, Pages 39~48
DOI : 10.9708/jksci.2014.19.2.039
In this paper, we propose an efficient dynamic workload balancing strategy which improves the performance of high-performance computing system. The key idea of this dynamic workload balancing strategy is to minimize execution time of each job and to maximize the system throughput by effectively using system resource such as CPU, memory. Also, this strategy dynamically allocates job by considering demanded memory size of executing job and workload status of each node. If an overload node occurs due to allocated job, the proposed scheme migrates job, executing in overload nodes, to another free nodes and reduces the waiting time and execution time of job by balancing workload of each node. Through simulation, we show that the proposed dynamic workload balancing strategy based on CPU, memory improves the performance of high-performance computing system compared to previous strategies.
CBIRS/TB Using Color Feature Information for A tablet Recognition
Koo, Gun-Seo ;
Journal of the Korea Society of Computer and Information, volume 19, issue 2, 2014, Pages 49~56
DOI : 10.9708/jksci.2014.19.2.049
This thesis proposes CBIRS/TB method that uses a tablet`s color distribution information and form distinctive in content-based search. CBIRS/TB can avoid misuses and improper tablet uses by conducting content-based search in commonly prescribed tablets. The existing FE-CBIRS system is limited to recognizing only the image of color and shape of the tablet, that leads to applying insufficient form-specific information. While CBIRS/TB utilizes average, standard deviation, hue and saturation of each tablets in color, brightness, and contrast, FE-CBIRS has partial-sphere application problem; only applying the typical color of the tablet. Also, in case of the shape-specific-information, Invariant Moment is mainly used for the extracted partial-spheres. This causes delayed processing time and accuracy problems. Therefore, to improve this setback, this thesis indexed color-specific-information of the extracted images into categorized classification for improved search speed and accuracy.

Lee, Junsang ; Lee, Imgeun ;
Journal of the Korea Society of Computer and Information, volume 19, issue 2, 2014, Pages 57~65
DOI : 10.9708/jksci.2014.19.2.057
The role of sound in producing 3D animation clip is one of the important factor to maximize the immersive effects of the scene. Especially interaction between video and sound makes the scene expressions more apparent, which is diversely applied in video production. One of these interaction techniques, the out-focussing technique is frequently used in both real video and 3D animation field. But in 3D animation, out-focussing is not easily implemented as in music videos or explosion scenes in real video shots. This paper analyzes the sound data to synchronize the depth of field with it. The novel out-focussing technique is proposed, where the object`s field of depth is controlled by beat rhythm in the sound data.

In the past composers used to make music with classical instruments such as piano, violin, guitar, flute, drums, and other well-known tools. With the advent of digital technology many software programs were developed which allow musicians to compose tunes using personal computers. Many file formats were introduced such as NIFF, SMDL and MIDI but none besides MIDI has been successful. Recently MusicXML has emerged as a de-facto standard for the computer representation of music. This paper presents a brief description of the structure of the MusicXML format and describes the development of a music score editor based on MusicXML. We implemented a MusicXML-based score editing software using C# language and a feasibility test showed the efficiency of our proposed method.

Ku, Dong Youn ; Park, Jae Wook ; Lee, Yong Kyu ;
Journal of the Korea Society of Computer and Information, volume 19, issue 2, 2014, Pages 133~142
DOI : 10.9708/jksci.2014.19.2.133
According to the development of medical information systems, shortened examination time per patient could increase the number of treatments, resulting in the rapid growth of the amount of medical data. Studies on how to efficiently compress and store medical text data of increasing patients are in progress. However, previous methods have the shortcoming of compressing medical text data as it is, resulting in low compression rate. This research tries to overcome the problem by using the gamma coding method which enables compression in bit unit. We propose a new compression scheme which encodes the deviations between measured values and normal range values. Furthermore, we suggest to use the previous value with the least deviation from the measurement as the standard value to encode that deviation. Even though the suggested methods are simple, they have high compression rates. Through performance evaluation, we show that the suggested methods are more efficient than the previous methods.
Optimal Solution Algorithms for Delivery Problem on Trees
Lee, KwangEui ;
Journal of the Korea Society of Computer and Information, volume 19, issue 2, 2014, Pages 143~150
DOI : 10.9708/jksci.2014.19.2.143
In this paper, we propose the delivery problem on trees and two algorithms for the problem. The delivery problem on trees is that of minimizing the object delivery time from one node to another node using n various speed robots. Our first algorithm generates an optimal solution with some restrictions in handover places. In this algorithm, we assume that the handover can be made at a vertex of given tree. We try to find the handover places and the robots participate in handover from the start node to the destination node. The second algorithm extends the first one to remove the restriction about the handover places. The second algorithm still generates an optimal solution. The time complexities of both algorithms are
where n is the number of robots and m is the number of nodes.
Implementation of Nondeterministic Compiler Using Monad
Byun, Sugwoo ;
Journal of the Korea Society of Computer and Information, volume 19, issue 2, 2014, Pages 151~159
DOI : 10.9708/jksci.2014.19.2.151
We discuss the implementation of a compiler for an imperative programming language, using monad in Haskell. This compiler involves a recursive-descent parser conducting nondeterministic parsing, in which backtracking occurs to try with other rules when the application of a production rule fails to parse an input string. Haskell has some strong facilities for parsing. Its algebraic types represent abstract syntax trees in a smooth way, and program codes by monad parsing are so concise that they are highly readable and code size is reduced significantly, comparing with other languages. We also deal with the runtime environment of the assembler and code generation whose target is the Stack-Assembly language based on a stack machine.
