In this paper, a wideband loop antenna for UWB applications is studied. The structure of the proposed wideband loop antenna is a circular loop antenna with appended circular sectors to obtain an ultra-wideband characteristic. The circular sectors are used instead of conventional triangular sectors to match with the 50 ohm feed line. Optimal design parameters are obtained by analyzing the effects of the gap between the circular sectors and the radius of the circular loop on the input reflection coefficient and gain characteristics. The optimized wideband loop antenna is fabricated on an FR4 substrate with a dimension of 41 mm by 41 mm. Experiment results show that the proposed antenna has a frequency band of 3.1-11.0 GHz for a VSWR < 2.25, which assures the operation in the UWB band. Measured gain ranges 1.3-5.3 dBi in the UWB band.

New VHF band for use in VDE is determined by WRC-12 due to the overload of AIS VDL, and the system characteristics of the VDE is recommended as ITU-R M. 1842-1. CS-TDMA, a multiple access method of AIS class B, is recommended as that of the VDE. It is inefficient for CS-TDMA just applying the report interval used in AIS class B to transmit high speed data with higher payload in the aspect of efficiency. In this paper, a simulation is executed in order to determine adequate report interval according to the number of active ships that affects directly network traffic. To this end, the performance of CS-TDMA, which includes the number of received packets, reception success rate, channel utilization, and collision rate, is investigated via a simulation.

Journal of the Korea Institute of Information and Communication Engineering, volume 18, issue 12, 2014, Pages 2847~2856
DOI : 10.6109/jkiice.2014.18.12.2847
It is necessary for maritime multi-band networks, which provide ships with diverse and seamless multimedia services, to perform vertical handover. As IEEE 802.21 WG has standardized vertical handover technologies for terrestrial wireless networks that do not consider VHF, HF, satellite networks, they cannot be directly applied to maritime multi-band networks. In this paper, the vertical handover framework for use in maritime mutlti-band networks is proposed, which includes the logical architecture, the communication reference model, re-defined handover primitives, and the handover process. The proposed vertical handover for maritime multi-band network can be applied in the ocean alone, as well as to the heterogeneous wireless networks which embrace both terrestrial and maritime networks.

It is feasible to develop a fault tolerant system through module level redundancy on the Integrated Modular Avionics (IMA). However, its great implementation complexity is one of important challenges when asynchronous hardware environment is naturally assumed. To solve this problem, Physically Asynchronous Logically Synchronous (PALS) on IMA has been proposed. But, it has adaptation problem by not addressing specific architecture for IMA system. In the paper, we propose how to synchronize the input data on the IMA system under primary/secondary redundancy architecture by referring to existing PALS. In the proposed scheme, we introduce window frame by considering rate monotonic scheduling and analyze the adequate the synchronization time. Finally, we verify the feasibility of the proposed design pattern through the systematic experiments.

Nowadays, most Internet servers run on virtual a network which connects each virtual machine, to process large amounts of data on single physical computer. The virtual machines for their own purposes are interconnected to other virtual server systems with various types of operating systems. Each virtual server may share one physical computer resources and operates at a service seamlessly to each other. Sometimes even the virtual machines are implemented using a method that lease the physical IT resources without purchasing physical server. Therefore, a virtual switch is needed to improve the performance when a large number of virtual machines operate on physical server. In this study, the implementation and investigation was performed for the virtual switches, OpenvSwitch and DPDKvSwitch, in order to provide the necessary high-performance cloud services to creative business.

Smart Phone market consists of several platforms such as Windows Phone, Apple iOS and Android of Google. Each platform uses different coding style respectively. Platform-dependent application results in high cost and low code reusability during development of application. It also provides heterogeneous display forms to users. In this paper, we propose a platform-independent generic interface model that could be operated in both the various smart phones and PC. Because the proposed model provides the same UI on multiple platforms, users can operate applications without awkwardness. The model includes a module which copes with the changes of the resolutions in various platforms and a module which switches scenes of each application for performance improvement. Moreover, a module which connects DB is also proposed in order to overcome the difference of way to store data in each platform. The implementation results show that the difference of display and operating manner in any hetero-platform is eliminated.

DOI : 10.6109/jkiice.2014.18.12.2939
This paper has analyzed the change of threshold voltage for oxide structure of symmetric and asymmetric double gate(DG) MOSFET. The asymmetric DGMOSFET can be fabricated with different top and bottom gate oxide thickness, while the symmetric DGMOSFET has the same top and bottom gate oxide thickness. Therefore optimum threshold voltage is considered for top and bottom gate oxide thickness of asymmetric DGMOSFET, compared with the threshold voltage of symmetric DGMOSFET. To obtain the threshold voltage, the analytical potential distribution is derived from Possion`s equation, and Gaussian distribution function is used as doping profile. We investigate for bottom gate voltage, channel length and thickness, and doping concentration how top and bottom gate oxide thickness influences on threshold voltage using this threshold voltage model. As a result, threshold voltage is greatly changed for oxide thickness, and we know the changing trend greatly differs with bottom gate voltage, channel length and thickness, and doping concentration.

Among the Example based Super Resolution(SR) techniques, Neighbor embedding(NE) has been inspired by manifold learning method, particularly locally linear embedding. However, the poor generalization of NE decreases the performance of such algorithm. The sizes of local training sets are always too small to improve the performance of NE. We propose the Learning Sparse-Neighbor Image Representation baesd on SVR having an excellent generalization ability to solve this problem. Given a low resolution image, we first use bicubic interpolation to synthesize its high resolution version. We extract the patches from this synthesized image and determine whether each patch corresponds to regions with high or low spatial frequencies. After the weight of each patch is obtained by our method, we used to learn separate SVR models. Finally, we update the pixel values using the previously learned SVRs. Through experimental results, we quantitatively and qualitatively confirm the improved results of the proposed algorithm when comparing with conventional interpolation methods and NE.

In the field of image recognition, circle detection is one of the most widely used techniques. Conventional algorithms are mainly based on Hough transform, which is the most straightforward algorithm for detecting circles and for providing enough robust algorithm. However, it suffers from large memory requirements and high computational loads, and sometimes tends to detect incorrect circles. This paper proposes an optimal circle detection and approximation method which is applicable for inspecting fiber optic connector endface. The proposed method finds initial center coordinates and radius based on the initial edge lines. Then, by introducing the simplified K-means algorithm, the proposed method investigates a substitute-circle by minimizing the area of non-overlapped regions. Through extensive simulations, it is shown that the proposed method can improve the error rate by as much as 67% and also can reduce the computing time by as much as 80%, compared to the Hough transform provided by the OpenCV library.

Nowadays, a private protection act has come into effect which demands for the protection of personal image information obtained by the CCTV. According to this act, the object out of interest has to be mosaicked such that it can not be identified before the image is sent to the investigation office. Meanwhile, the demand for digital videos obtained by CCTV is also increasing for digital forensic. Therefore, due to the two conflicting demands, the demand for a solution which can automatically mask an object in the CCTV video is increasing and related IT industry is expected to grow. The core technology in developing a target masking solution is the object tracking technique. In this paper, we propose an object tracking technique which suits for the application of CCTV video object masking as a postprocess. The proposed method simultaneously uses the motion and the color information to produce a stable tracking result. Furthermore, the proposed method is based on the centroid shifting method, which is a fast color based tracking method, and thus the overall tracking becomes fast.

When lighting has installed indoor, we control lighting using human-detecting sensors for people who pass at night and places that are lack of quantity of light. However, malfunction can be caused by positions of inappropriate sensors, and in the case of passages of big buildings, it is a problem that even after a person pass, light apparatuses are turned on for a long time. In this paper, we propose lighting control system based on location positioning for energy saving that control lighting in accordance with passers`s position through indoor location positioning. This system use the fingerprinting technology that is one of the location positioning technologies and RSSI data that is collected by a smart device. Using those, it can turn on only lightings that are included in the positioned location and reduce unnecessary power consumption. As a result of experiment, on condition that four people were existing and illumination was 308 lux, we assured reduction effect of 49 Wh.

The edge detection is a pre-processing of such as image segmentation, image recognition, etc, and many related studies are being conducted both in domestic and abroad. Representative edge detection methods are Sobel, Prewitt, Laplacian, Roberts and Canny edge detectors. Such existing methods are possible for superb detections of edges if edges are detected from videos without noises. However, for video degraded by the salt-and-pepper noise, the edge detection characteristic is shown to be insufficient due to the noise influence. Therefore, in this study, the area is separated as the top, down, left and right from the mask`s center pixel first to acquire a superb edge detection characteristic from the video damaged by the salt-and-pepper noise. And the algorithm that detects the final edge by applying the directional mask on the assumed factor of mask that is obtained according to the result of determination for the noise status of representative pixel value of each area.

The experimental results for performance are that the system runs 40ms, and the color and pattern for diagnostic errors are around 20% and 24% on average. The system and technique enable a scleral diagnosis with subdividing the patterns and patient database.

The steadicam effects is widely used in production of the 3D animation for natural camera movement. Conventional method for steadicam effects is using keyframe animation technique, which is annoying and time consuming process. Furthermore it is difficult and unnatural to simulate camera movement in real world. In this paper we propose a novel method for representing steadicam effects on virtual camera of 3D animation. We modeled a camera of real world into Maya production tools, considering gravity, mass and elasticity. The model is implemented with Python language, which is directly applied to Maya platform as a filter module. The proposed method reduces production time and improves production environment. It also makes more natural and realistic footage to maximize visual effects.

Recently, HTML5 have drawn many people`s attention since it is considered as a next-generation web standard and can implement a lot of graphic and multimedia-related techniques on a web browser without installing programs separately. In this paper, we implement a game independent of platforms, such as iOS and Android, using the HTML5 canvas. In the game, the main character can move up, down, left, and right not to collide with neighboring enemies. If the character collides with an enemy, the HP (hit point) gauge bar reduces. On the other hand, if the character obtains heart items, the gauge bar increases. In the future, we will add various items to the game and will diversify its user interfaces by applying computer vision techniques such as various gesture recognition.

3D integral imaging technique with an active mask is capable of displaying real 3D images with high resolution in space. In this paper, we present a novel 3D/2D convertible integral imaging display system using an active mask. For the proposed method, the principles of 3D, 2D, and 3D/2D composed operations are explained according to the displayed images through two LCD panels. In 3D mode, the elemental images and the mask images are displayed in two display panels. On the other hand, the light source image and 2D image are displayed in 2D mode. In addition, 3D/2D mode is obtained using the spatial separation for 3D and 2D modes. To show the feasibility of the proposed method, we carry out the preliminary experiments and present the optical results.

Since the RCS(Radar Cross Section) of target is important factor to determine radar performance, it is important to locate radar where large RCS is observed. However, the distance between the target and the radar is an important factor of the received power, as well as RCS. In this paper, it is calculated that received power from ballistic missile to radar based on different observed position and it is studied that to place radar for high detection efficiency.

When an integrated circuit device is burned out under high-intense radiation and device-level simulation that usually requires manufacturer`s proprietary information is not available, experimental conformation of a failure mechanism is often the only choice. To distinguish Latchup from other causes experimentally, a new combination of multiple techniques have been developed and demonstrated. Power supply circumvention, hot-spot monitoring using an infrared camera, and supply current monitoring techniques were implemented for the conformation of the Latchup.
