This paper describes a method for finding a fuzzy membership matrix in case of numerical and categorical features.
The set of feature vectors with mixed features is mapped to a set of feature vectors with only real valued
components with the condition that the new set of vectors has the same proximity...

Support vector machines (classification and regression) are powerful machine learning techniques for crisp data. In this paper, the problem is considered for interval data. Two methods to deal with the problem using support vector regression are proposed and two new methods for evaluating performance...

Computing object distance using image processing is an important research area in the field of computer vision and
robot navigation applications. In this paper we have proposed a new method to compute the distance of an object
using a single image. According to our observation there exists a relationship...

In this paper, a survey for Data Mining frame work has been done for proposing Data Mining methodologies to
engineering materials design applications. An exhaustive literature survey made in this article has covered the modeling
systems such as Analytical Model, Numerical Simulation Model and Computer...
Pages: 329 - 339
In this paper, a computer aided system for designing nonwoven materials is presented. As an original approach in
the field of nonwoven research, both quality measurement analysis and human knowledge processing are integrated
in the system. It allows designers to optimize the structure of nonwoven materials...

procedures for the calculation of point-defect migration energies in Atomistic Kinetic Monte Carlo (AKMC)
simulations, as functions of the Local Atomic Configuration (LAC). Two approaches are considered: the Cluster
Expansion (CE) and the Artificial Neural Network (ANN). The first is found to be unpromising...
Pages: 353 - 360
This paper presents a practical collision-free motion planning method for general underactuated robot manipulators. First the dynamic properties of underactuated robot manipulator are analyzed, and then the collision avoidance problem is formulated and solved as a position-based force control problem....

The health system in developed countries is facing a problem of scalability in order to accommodate the
increased proportion of the elderly population. Scarce resources cannot be sustained unless innovative
technology is considered to provide health care in a more effective way. The Smart Home provides...

In a wireless network environment accurate and timely estimation or prediction of network traffic has gained much
importance in the recent past. The network applications use traffic prediction results to maintain its performance by
adopting its behaviors. Network Service provider will use the prediction...
