Estimating Variations In Metabolic Cost Within The Stride Cycle During Level And Uphill Walking, Arash Mohammadzadeh Gonabadi

Student Research and Creative Activity Fair

Indirect calorimetry provides the average cost of a stride cycle and prevents from identifying which part of the gait cycle causes increased metabolic cost in patients, however, recent simulation methods allow estimating the time profile of metabolic cost within the stride cycle. In this study, we compare the estimations of the time profile of the metabolic cost of two simulation methods for level and uphill walking. We used kinematic, kinetic and electromyography data from level and uphill walking (one participant) to estimate the time profiles of metabolic cost using the muscle-level metabolic model of Umberger using electromyography and kinematic data ...

Automated Recognition Of Corn Embryos For Selective Breeding, Tanner Holte Apr 2017

Automated Recognition Of Corn Embryos For Selective Breeding, Tanner Holte

Symposium on Undergraduate Research and Creative Expression

An analysis of a kernel of corn is essential to determining its worth for selective breeding. The embryo found in a kernel of corn is what is used to produce oils, and therefore maximizing its size would make a farmer's yield more efficient. The current method of recording the area of the corn's embryo, however, is to take measurements by hand. This project seeks to provide a solution by developing a program that can recognize and mark the embryo on a picture of a kernel of corn without needing guidance. The program will be taught to recognize patterns ...
