TL;DR: The performance when the data is collected with a commercially available mobile device containing low-grade accelerometers, including the Google G1 phone containing the AK8976A embedded accelerometer sensor is reported.
Abstract: The need for more security on mobile devices is increasing with new functionalities and features made available. To improve the device security we propose gait recognition as a protection mechanism. Unlike previous work on gait recognition, which was based on the use of video sources, floor sensors or dedicated high-grade accelerometers, this paper reports the performance when the data is collected with a commercially available mobile device containing low-grade accelerometers. To be more specific, the used mobile device is the Google G1 phone containing the AK8976A embedded accelerometer sensor. The mobile device was placed at the hip on each volunteer to collect gait data. Preproccesing, cycle detection and recognition-analysis were applied to the acceleration signal. The performance of the system was evaluated having 51 volunteers and resulted in an equal error rate (EER) of 20%.
TL;DR: Current and emerging joining technologies are reviewed according to the mechanisms of joint formation, i.e.; mechanical, chemical, thermal, or hybrid processes.
Abstract: Emerging trends in manufacturing such as light weighting, increased performance and functionality increases the use of multi-material, hybrid structures and thus the need for joining of dissimilar materials. The properties of the different materials are jointly utilised to achieve product performance. The joining processes can, on the other hand be challenging due to the same different properties. This paper reviews and summarizes state of the art research in joining dissimilar materials. Current and emerging joining technologies are reviewed according to the mechanisms of joint formation, i.e.; mechanical, chemical, thermal, or hybrid processes. Methods for process selection are described and future challenges for research on joining dissimilar materials are summarized.
TL;DR: This paper presents a biometric user authentication based on a person’s gait patterns extracted from a physical device attached to the lower leg using histogram similarity and cycle length methods.
Abstract: This paper presents a biometric user authentication based on a person’s gait. Unlike most previous gait recognition approaches, which are based on machine vision techniques, in our approach gait patterns are extracted from a physical device attached to the lower leg. From the output of the device accelerations in three directions: vertical, forward-backward, and sideways motion of the lower leg are obtained. A combination of these accelerations is used for authentication. Applying two different methods, histogram similarity and cycle length, equal error rates (EER) of 5% and 9% were achieved, respectively.

TL;DR: In this paper, the authors provide a snapshot of the permafrost thermal state in the Nordic area obtained during the International Polar Year (IPY) 2007-2009 Several intensive research campaigns were undertaken within a variety of projects to obtain this snapshot.
Abstract: This paper provides a snapshot of the permafrost thermal state in the Nordic area obtained during the International Polar Year (IPY) 2007-2009 Several intensive research campaigns were undertaken within a variety of projects in the Nordic countries to obtain this snapshot We demonstrate for Scandinavia that both lowland permafrost in palsas and peat plateaus, and large areas of permafrost in the mountains are at temperatures close to 0 degrees C, which makes them sensitive to climatic changes In Svalbard and northeast Greenland, and also in the highest parts of the mountains in the rest of the Nordic area, the permafrost is somewhat colder, but still only a few degrees below the freezing point The observations presented from the network of boreholes, more than half of which were established during the IPY, provide an important baseline to assess how future predicted climatic changes may affect the permafrost thermal state in the Nordic area Time series of active-layer thickness and permafrost temperature conditions in the Nordic area, which are generally only 10 years in length, show generally increasing active-layer depths and risings permafrost temperatures Copyright (C) 2010 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd (Less)
TL;DR: A taxonomy for Games for Health is extended, a case study on games for dementia sufferers is described, and some challenges and research opportunities are presented.
Abstract: Computer games are no longer just a trivial activity played by children in arcades. Social networking and casual gaming have broadened the market for, and acceptance of, games. This has coincided with a realization of their power to engage and motivate players. Good computer games are excellent examples of modern educational theory (1). The military, health providers, governments, and educators, all use computer games. This paper focuses on Games for Health, discussing the range of areas and approaches to developing these games. We extend a taxonomy for Games for Health, describe a case study on games for dementia sufferers, and finally, present some challenges and research opportunities in this area.
