Estimating The Tempo Of Audio Files, Parker Ostertag

Student Academic Conference

On the market today, there exists a multitude of software that allows for the detection and prediction of beats per minute (BPM) contained in audio files. There are both free and monetized versions of these programs, but there is one thing that they all have in common: they are inaccurate. This is simply because the science behind beat detection is unfinished, and may never be. In this project, I decided to use a method of audio peak detection to help me detect the tempo that may exist in any audio file. I started by researching existing programs and the science ...

Showcase of Osprey Advancements in Research and Scholarship (SOARS)

Internet of Things (IoT) is a developing concept that introduces the network of physical sensors which are interconnected to each other. Some sensors are wirelessly connected among themselves and to the internet. Currently, IoT applications demand substantial requirements in terms of Radio Access Network (RAN) such as long-range outdoor coverage, environmental factors, obstructions, interference, power consumption, and many others. Also, the current wireless technologies are not able to satisfy all these requirements simultaneously. Therefore, there is no single wireless standard that would predominate the IoT. However, one relevant wireless radio solution to IoT is known as Long Range Wide Area ...

Hardware-Entangled Software Execution Using Dynamic Pufs, Wenjie Xiong Dec 2019

Hardware-Entangled Software Execution Using Dynamic Pufs, Wenjie Xiong

Yale Day of Data

Low-end computing devices are becoming increasingly ubiquitous, especially due to the widespread deployment of Internet-of-Things products. There is, however, much concern about sensitive data being processed on these low-end devices which have limited protection mechanisms in place. This paper proposes a Hardware-Entangled Software Protection (HESP) scheme that leverages hardware features to protect software code from malicious modification before or during run-time. It also enables implicit hardware authentication. Thus, the software will execute correctly only on an authorized device and if the timing of the software, e.g., control flow, was not changed through malicious modifications. The proposed ideas are based ...

For this reason, we have been collecting infrared data and creating 3-dimensional models of various structures located on the University of North Georgia Dahlonega campus. Images and data were obtained using a drone and a FLIR Pro infrared camera. Using a specialized software, we were able to analyze infrared images. Through the combined use of Agisoft Metashape and many high-resolution infrared images, a 3D model with thermal data ...


Pneumothorax Radiograph Diagnosis Utilizing Deep Convolutional Neural Network, Ziqi Wang Nov 2019

Pneumothorax Radiograph Diagnosis Utilizing Deep Convolutional Neural Network, Ziqi Wang

Georgia Undergraduate Research Conference (GURC)

Pneumothorax is a life-threatening respiratory disease caused by physical trauma to the chest or as a complication of medical or surgical intervention (Zarogoulidis, 2014). Despite many available methods, a chest radiograph remains a primary method used for diagnosis. Although this technique is commonly used, it is challenging to diagnose based upon chest radiographs. Highly trained specialists are needed to review the chest radiographs which tends to create a large amount of additional work. Hence, in this study, our goal is to develop an algorithm using Deep Convolutional Neural Networks (DCNNs) to detect visual signs for pneumothorax in medical images and ...

Enhancing Cpr Training: Development And Assessment Of An Affordable, Open-Source Real-Time Feedback Manikin, Anish Sangari, Nitish Sood, Joseph Andrew Hauger

Georgia Undergraduate Research Conference (GURC)

Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) is a life-saving technique used in cases of cardiac arrest. Immediate CPR can increase survival rates two to three-fold. While many CPR training courses use non-electronic CPR manikins, recent literature has shown that training on a real-time feedback CPR manikin improves functional outcomes such as chest compression rate and mean tidal volume. However, current commercially available real-time feedback manikins only measure metrics on chest compressions or can be prohibitively expensive ( >$200). Accordingly, we have designed, constructed, and tested a low-cost Arduino microcontroller-based CPR manikin that provides real-time feedback to trainees on eight critical metrics including force of ...

Simphysics, Taylor Woods, Maidel Fletes, Mary Elizabeth Harrell, Paul Halford

Georgia Undergraduate Research Conference (GURC)

Understanding and interpreting relationships and functional trends with 2-D graphs are foundational skills in STEM fields, in other sciences and in all disciplines that utilize data analysis. Introductory physics courses regularly start with the topic of kinematics which heavily utilizes 2-D graphs that describe motion. This is why difficulties that students face in understanding 2-D graphs surface early on in physics. Yet, for this same reason kinematics can be used as a great opportunity to teach graphing skills in general. The primary goal of this project is to develop an interactive intelligent tutoring system (PhysicsSim) that makes use of kinematics ...

Nonlinear Observer For Visual-Inertial Navigation Using Intermittent Landmark Measurements, Miaomiao Wang

Western Research Forum

The development of reliable orientation, position and linear velocity estimation algorithms for the 3D visual-inertial navigation system (VINS) is instrumental in many applications, such as autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs), and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). It is extremely important when the global position system (GPS) is not available in GPS-denied environments. Recently, observers design for VINS using landmark position measurements from Kinect sensors or stereo cameras has been increasingly investigated in the literature.

The aim of this work is to design a nonlinear observer for VINS under the assumption that landmark position measurements are intermittent. In practice, the landmark measurements are ...


Quantified Measurement Of The Tilt Effect In A Family Of Café Wall Illusions, Nasim Nematzadeh Dr., David Martin Powers Prof. May 2019

Quantified Measurement Of The Tilt Effect In A Family Of Café Wall Illusions, Nasim Nematzadeh Dr., David Martin Powers Prof.

MODVIS Workshop

This abstract explores the tilt effect in a family of Café Wall illusions using a Classical Gaussian Receptive Field model (CRF). Our model constructs an intermediate representation called edge map at multiple scales (Fig. 1) that reveals tilt cues and clues involved in the illusory perception of the Café Wall pattern. We investigate a wide range of parameters of the stimulus including mortar width, luminance, tiles contrast, and phase of the tile displacement (the stimuli in Fig. 2). We show that this simple bioplausible model, simulating the contrast sensitivity of the retinal ganglion cells, can not only detect the tilts ...

Automated Segmentation Of Brain Ventricles Using 3d U-Net, Robert Sandor, Anish P. Dalal Apr 2019

Automated Segmentation Of Brain Ventricles Using 3d U-Net, Robert Sandor, Anish P. Dalal

Creative Activity and Research Day - CARD

Neuro-radiologists currently use qualitative volumetric change of brain ventricles after surgery to assess the safety of removing a ventriculoperitoneal (VP) shunt which is a medical device that relieves pressure on the brain caused by fluid accumulation. Following safe removal of the VP shunt, patients can be released from the hospital. The need for accurate and quick measurement of brain ventricular volumetric change makes automatic 3D segmentation software an ideal candidate to aid decisions after surgery. In this paper, we propose an approach to estimate the ventricular volume variation using segmentation in brain MRI and CT images. Our approach consists of ...

Autonomous Watercraft Simulation And Programming, Nicholas J. Savino

Student Scholar Showcase

Automation of various modes of transportation is thought to make travel more safe and efficient. Over the past several decades, advances to semi-autonomous and autonomous vehicles have led to advanced autopilot systems on planes and boats, and an increasing popularity of self-driving cars. We predicted the motion of an autonomous vehicle using simulations in Python. The simulation models the motion of a small scale watercraft, which can then be built and programmed using an Arduino Microcontroller. We examined different control methods for a simulated rescue craft to reach a target. We also examined the effects of different factors, such as ...
