Herein, we propose a method for recognizing human emotions that utilizes the standardized mean value of facial expression intensity obtained from a thermal image and the standardized mean value of the time at utterance. In this study, the emotions of one subject could be discerned with 76.5% accuracy...

A model for simulating the output signals of Hall sensors installed with misalignment in a brushless DC (BLDC) motor is proposed in this paper. In the past, Hall sensors have been very widely adopted to evaluate the commutation timing and rotation speed of a BLDC motor. However, no simulation model is...

Control algorithms development for humanoid locomotion is difficult due to humanoid’s high number of Degrees of Freedom and system nonlinearity. Moreover, a humanoid may lose balance as its walking speed changes. We present AR-601M humanoid locomotion modelling with virtual height inverted pendulum and...

We developed a secure communication method using a discrete wavelet transform. Two users must both have a copy of the same piece of music to be able to communicate with each other. The music and the sender's message are encoded using the scaling coefficients obtained from a discrete wavelet transformation....

The new designed acousto-optic device has adjustable, it is 1.5 times to extend its length. Fitting plastic optic fiber into transparent tube, the path of light can be increased and the light area will be enlarged. The device can present different color mode of light with RGB and high light LEDs as the...

This paper investigates the factors that influence the motives of make-or-buy decisions on information systems from the viewpoints of Transaction cost economics (TCE) and the resource-based view (RBV). Using our original questionnaire survey data carried out in 2007 targeting Japanese firms, we analyze...

This study presents a method of selecting verb concepts based on analysis of co-occurrence information of verbs in modern Japanese novels collected from the Japanese digital library, “Aozora Bunko”. We plan to incorporate the proposed method into an integrated narrative generation system (INGS) that...
