TitleNew Challenges for Future Energy Management Systems Using Electrified Vehicles
AuthorTatsuya Suzuki (Nagoya University, Japan)
AbstractOne of the promising ideas to realize a resilient energy management system (EMS) is to exploit the distributed batteries installed in electrified vehicles. This plenary talk gives several achievements on how to exploit in-vehicle batteries for EMS, which were developed under the operation of JST, CREST project in Japan. The following three significant challenges are particularly focused in this talk: (1) Observation and modeling of vehicle use, and its application to prediction and diagnosis, (2) Design of local EMS, such as vehicle to home (V2H), based on model predictive control framework, (3) Design of EMS aggregator which realizes the cooperation of distributed local EMSs. In the challenge (1), development of prediction model for future vehicle use is addressed based on semi-Markov model, and its performance is verified. In the challenge (2), simultaneous use of in-vehicle battery and heat pump water heater (HPWS) is considered, which enables us to realize highly efficient home energy management system. The challenge (3) is one of the most significant contributions in the CREST project, in which a design of response to regulation market (ancillary service), integrated management of EV sharing system and EMS, and design of price for P2P power trading in the cooperation between local EMSs, are investigated. All challenges include not only theoretical developments but also practical feasibility analyses. Finally, several important future works will be discussed.

TitleCombinatorial Optimization Makes Your Daily Life Efficient
AuthorMutsunori Yagiura (Nagoya University, Japan)
AbstractWhen you go out for shopping, visiting several stores, you might think of finding an “efficient” route to visit all stores in the sense that the total traveling distance or time is as small as possible. Such problems can be modeled as combinatorial optimization problems. Unfortunately, it is known to be hard to find optimal solutions for such problems, but there are still needs to solve them due to their practical importance. Fortunately, this difficulty is alleviated if we do not stick to exact optimal solutions. Indeed, many methods have been devised to find “good” solutions in reasonable computation time. This talk introduces the basic ideas of such practical algorithms, using examples from optimization problems closely related to your daily life.

TitleEfficient Hardware Implementation of STDP for AER Based Large-Scale SNN Neuromorphic System
Author*Jaeyoon Kim, Jia Park, Sunghwan Joo, Seong-Ook Jung (Yonsei University, Republic of Korea)
Pagepp. 1 - 4
KeywordSpiking Neural Network (SNN), Spike Timing Dependent Plasticity (STDP), FPGA, MNIST, AER
AbstractThis paper proposes a novel method to reduce the hardware cost for implementing spike-timing-dependent-plasticity (STDP) by eliminating the unnecessary decoding processes and using the addresses directly from the AER in the spiking neuron network (SNN) neuromorphic processor. Although SNN has the advantage of operating in low power, the major bottleneck in large scale SNN neuromorphic systems is the high hardware cost due to complex neuron dynamics. In SNN, STDP learning rule is usually implemented by the shift registers to record the spike history. Thus, as the number of neurons increases, the number of shift registers must increase accordingly. Moreover, large scale SNN neuromorphic systems lack the capability to process various inputs at once, thus rely on address event representation to send the addresses with the spikes and decode this information again for STDP learning. We implemented a STDP circuit for SNN system comprising 784 inputs and 256 outputs for MNIST image recognition on a Xilinx KCU 105 FPGA board. The proposed STDP circuit showed a 80% reduction in LUT, 88% in FF, and 83% in power compared to the conventional STDP circuit.

AbstractNeural Network Physical Unclonable Function (NN-PUF) has been proposed for the secure implementation of Edge AI. This study evaluates the tamper resistance of NN-PUF against machine learning attacks. The machine learning attack in this study learns CPRs using deep learning. As a result of the evaluation experiment, the machine learning attack predicted up to 81.87% for CRPs. Therefore, this study revealed that NNPUF is vulnerable to machine learning attacks.

KeywordSpeech activity detection, Convolutional Neural Network, Deep learning, Feature combination, Fusion Model
AbstractSpeech activity detection (SAD) is an important preparation process for speech-based applications. Speech activity detection is used to identify the speech in an audio recording. There were many recent works in the development of robust SAD which focus on energy-based methods, Autocorrelation-based features, recurrent neural network (RNN) and convolutional neural network (CNN). This paper aims to propose a speech activity detection based on CNN, which utilizes CNN with the fusion of combined auditory feature on the entertainment media domain. We use the combination of the log-Mel spectrogram (LM), Mel frequency cepstral coefficient (MFCC), chroma, spectral contrast and tonnetz as the input feature that operates on the raw speech signal and deliver it into a convolution neural network for classifying the speech. The result in this work shows that the proposed speech activity detection can achieve a better result than previous work in a more complicated noise environment.

TitleA Trial for Detection of Change in AS Operation Policies by Use of Machine Learning
Author*Akira Ishida, Michiko Harayama (Gifu University, Japan)
Pagepp. 15 - 20
KeywordBorder Gateway Protocol, Full Route, Autonomous System, AS Operation Policy, Machine Learning
AbstractThe full route obtained by Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) operation does not only indicate routes to all Internet hosts, but also have global information of the Internet structure. These are stored as information about AS operation policy in a condensed form in various attributes that the origin ISP or transit ISP gives to the prefix. This information is included statistically as well as analytically. Our preliminary research has shown that the network topology can be reproduced from the learning data on full root information obtained by a small-scale network model. Now, for the 100AS model created according to the Internet model configured using CAIDA data to collect and analyze the actual full route, the policy of AS including the topology can be restored. We also discuss whether such information can be reproduced by analyzing actual Internet data.

AbstractWe previously proposed a hardware model that can reproduce the TSTDP characteristics. However, this model has frequency dependence only when Tpost-Tpre is positive. In this paper, we propose a model that has frequency dependence even when Tpost-Tpre is negative, moreover, the synaptic strength changes according to the frequency stimulation to pre cell body model. As a result, even if Tpost-Tpre is negative, the frequency dependence is obtained, and the change in synaptic strength increases as the frequency of high frequency stimulation increases.

AbstractThis paper presents the measurement results of the low voltage CMOS current mode reference circuit which is designed using subthreshold operation of MOSFETs. This circuit ensures adjustment the temperature coefficient and the output voltage after fabrication by the trimming function. The proposed reference circuit has been fabricated using 1-poly 2-metal 0.6 μm standard CMOS process. The silicon measurement results of eight samples show the average output voltage of 0.54 V and the variation of 2.1 % before trimming compared with the typical design simulation of 0.50 V. Although the silicon results show the discrepancy from the simulation, we could demonstrate that the output voltage can be adjusted to the target characteristic by trimming function.

Pagepp. 39 - 44
KeywordPetri net, Flow net, Structural liveness, Structural boundedness, FMS
AbstractThis paper deals with methodology for analyzing of a flexible manufacturing system (FMS) by using flow net subgraphs. A Petri net is a mathematical method that can express and analyze discrete event systems. Although structural liveness and safety in ordinary free choice (FC) nets has already been researched, analysis methods for weighted Petri nets have not yet been established. In this study, we propose a method for determining the structural liveness and safety of the strongly connected FC nets. The flow rate of tokens for the strongly connected marked graphs (MGs) is defined as the circuit flow value. Further, the circuit flow value of a strongly connected FC net is obtained by calculating the superposition of the circuit flow value.

AbstractWe consider the bisimilarity control problem for partially observed nondeterministic discrete event systems with deterministic specifications. This problem requires us to synthesize a supervisor that achieves bisimulation equivalence of the supervised system and the deterministic specification under partial observation. We present necessary and sufficient conditions for the existence of such a deterministic supervisor, which can be verified polynomially.

We show how to use the plug-in, AmaterasUML, to do refactoring the target programs base on a point of view ``Replace Type Code with State/Strategy''.

Pagepp. 54 - 59
KeywordButterworth, chopper, low noise, SPI
AbstractIn this paper, various blocks and structures applied to the low-noise 2 band selection band pass filter are described. In the proposed Band Pass Filter, when the frequency is input through the buffer, one of Band 1 or Band 2 can be selected using the switch, and the output goes through the buffer after the selected switch among Band 1 and Band 2. After the pre-amplifier, the low frequency band pass filter is used to secure -3 dB or more at 29.5 kHz (5 kHz range), and is used to secure -1 dB or more at 39.5 kHz (5 kHz range). The aim is to remove the interference between bands by -20 dB or more at the interference frequencies of 29.5 Hz and 39.5 Hz, which are the center frequencies of each band. Chopper structure was used to reduce noise, and it was designed to drop more than -21dB / √Hz in Band1,2.

AbstractThis paper presents a low power and low noise Bandgap Reference (BGR) circuit with the high-order curvature-correction circuit by using MOSFETs operating in weak inversion region. The output voltage of the BGR varies around 1570 μV peak-to-peak voltage, when the temperature is increased from -35 °C to 150 °C. The BGR consumes 38.7 µA current from 1.1 V power supply.

AbstractThis paper presents a quadrature resonant clock generator with tuning capacitors for driving four 2.1-mm load wires. By using frequency tuning capacitors, which reduce the mismatch in operating and LC resonant frequencies, the proposed clock generator offers power reduction by 19-22% compared with conventional CMOS clock driver and by 16-32% compared with conventional CML clock driver. Measurement result from the prototype chip fabricated in 65 nm CMOS shows that total power consumption of the proposed quadrature resonant clock is 14.5 mW in 12.5-GHz operation with four 370-fF load wire capacitances.

Title1-V 4.91-nW Wide-Temperature-Range Subthreshold Bandgap Reference with Substrate Bias Technique
Author*Qiwei Zhao, Qian Xie, Zhehan Zhuang, Zheng Wang (University of Electronic Science and Technology of China, China)
Pagepp. 69 - 72
Keywordbandgap reference, wide temperature range, subthreshold, substrate bias
AbstractBiasing MOSFET in subthreshold region is an approach to reduce power of sub-bandgap references (Sub-BGRs) at low supply. However, conventional subthreshold Sub-BGRs cannot operate in low temperature because proportional-to-absolute-temperature (PTAT) voltage's temperature characteristics changes. In this work, substrate bias technique is introduced to keep PTAT voltage available in much wider temperature range. In the standard 180 nm CMOS, the proposed 4.91 nW Sub-BGR exhibits a minimum temperature coefficient (TC) of 85 ppm/°C from -55 to 125 °C.

AbstractThis paper discusses a method for leveling the traffic load of communication links in a distributed management network with multiple controllers. Our study has modeled the distributed management network as a flow network and defined the ratio of flow to capacity in an edge as a load factor. A flow optimization problem for finding the flow path to minimize the load factor in the entire network has been considered. By reformulating an unsplittable flow load factor balancing problem, our study has obtained that has been proven to be NP-hard and propose an approximate solution.

AbstractWhile a simple and efficient method using 2 by 2 matrices has been published, it is only applicable to differential calculus of functions of a single variable. As it stands, therefore, if we want to execute partial differential calculus on functions of multiple (n) variables we need to operate on n such matrices. Here, we propose a method using n + 1 by n + 1 matrices that can considerably reduce these repetitions.

AbstractA Boolean network (BN) is widely used as a mathematical model for control of gene regulatory networks. Since gene regulatory networks are large-scale in general, it is important to consider model reduction. In this paper, a model reduction method of BNs using a BDD (binary decision diagram) is proposed. First, the outline of BNs is explained. Next, the existing model reduction method used in this paper is introduced. After that, an implementation method using a BDD is proposed.

AbstractThis paper presents a high power Low Dropout Voltage Regulator Design with an enhanced resistive bank circuit for powering an RF IC for DSRC applications. Due to the addition of the enhanced resistor bank circuit, the feedback takes part in the amplified output from the input, such that the gain is controlled much more by the feedback network. A low pass filter is used to remove excess noise. The quiescent current of the proposed LDO structure is reduced to 3.85 µA from a 3.3 V supply voltage, to improve the power efficiency of LDO. Phase Margin of the bandgap reference circuit is 62.30O. For a load current of 100 mA settling time of 26 µs is achieved by the proposed LDO. PSRR of -46 dB is achieved till 1 kHz of frequency. Line regulation and Load regulation of the proposed LDO is 30.6 mV/V and 0.278 mV/mA respectively. This structure is implemented using 0.13 µm Bipolar-CMOS-DMOS (BCD) technology with an active area of 206 µm X 161 µm.

AbstractWe discuss a method to represent the trust degrees of messages and senders. Marsh and Dibben introduced a trust value, where the score for trust (1) and the score for distrust (-1) are at both extremities. However, some studies point out the independence of trust and distrust notions. Also, some researchers claim that the opposite idea of trust is "absence of trust" rather than distrust. In this paper, towards the mathematical analysis, we discuss the quantity of faith.

AbstractA model of internal organs of the human body has been proposed based on Traditional Chinese Medicine and under such an assumption that triple energizer is directly related to other viscera. This paper aims to re-examine the relationship between triple energizer and other viscera to reconstruct a new Petri net model of internal organs. Firstly, from the perspective of physiological functions as well as Traditional Chinese Medicine, we confirm that triple energizer should be considered as paths to transport energy in the human body and design model of such paths. Then, combining the path model and the model of five viscera and five bowels, we construct a new model of five viscera and six bowels by using Petri nets. Finally, computational experiments are done for the old and new models to compare the differences between the models.

AbstractLet G = (V, E) be a graph with the vertex set V and the edge set E. We denote by N(v) the neighborhood of a vertex v \in V. A non-empty set of vertices S \subset V is said to be a defensive alliance if for every vertex v \in S, |N(v) \cap S| + 1 \ge |N(v) \cap (V - S)|. In this paper, we consider a defensive alliance containing a specified vertex in a tree. We show that, for any tree T of order at least three and a vertex x of T, there is a defensive alliance S such that x \in S and |S| \le \left \lceil \frac{|V_1(T)|+1}{2} \right \rceil, where V_1(T) stands for the set of leaves of T. Actually, we give an algorithm which construct a such defensive alliance.

AbstractCryptography schemes have been proposed in many applications to encrypt cloud storage health records (HRs) with affording benefits like low cost and flexibility. Among which is the secret-sharing protocol whereby, health care system split a secret into n shares and distribute each secret share to the shareholders, where only a threshold (t) or more shareholders can decode the secret. In this paper, we combine the property of homomorphism encryption and secret sharing to encrypt HRs so that complex computations of Lagrange are outsourced to the cloud service provider with the flexibility of adding and removing shareholders. We analyze the time, security level, and communication complexities of our scheme, and confirm that it is much secure than the conventional methods.

AbstractRecently, there is a rapid increase of connected wireless devices. This implies that networks become denser, thus an increase in control traffic and a higher consumption of bandwidth that may cause packet loss. A novel proposal to minimize control traffic in ad-hoc networks is presented. As most wireless devices are battery-powered, this proposal considers the residual energy of a node in addition to its node density when choosing its willingness to be a multipoint relay (MPR) node. Thus, battery-powered devices with residual energy below a threshold is excluded from being nominated as MPRs. The evaluation was performed in a simulation environment (Riverbed Modeler). Results show a decrease in control traffic with our proposed method.

Keyword3-D MANET Simulation, Mountain Rescue, UAV, Double Mountain Diffraction
AbstractIn recent years, there has been a worldwide boom in mountain climbing because the activity has become easier due to the higher functionality and lighter weight of mountaineering equipment. As a result, mountain distress accidents have also increased. In the event of a disaster, effective communication for search and rescue is important. Mobile communication in the mountains, however, is limited because the terrain serves to block radio waves. Therefore, the use of MANET with unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs; e.g., drones or balloons) is expected, although specific methods have not yet been clarified. Even in the case of communication simulations, there are elevation differences of several thousand meters on mountain trails, and radio wave propagation losses peculiar to mountains. Therefore, in this study, a three-dimensional MANET simulation was carried out using the Hotaka mountain range as an example case. Our radio wave propagation model includes a two-wave plane ground model, a double mountainous diffraction loss, and vegetation attenuation. The simulation by MANET using UAV as a relay device showed that the UAV expands the communicable area substantially in mountain communication. We also discuss the effects of rainfall and snow

AbstractWe implemented a vision sensing-based microwave power transfer experimental system aiming to feed a fast-moving target. In the experiment, retroreflective position markers shot out from the shooting equipment were used as fast-moving targets. A 1000-fps vison sensor successfully detected and tracked the target position marker flying at over 80 km/h and converted its centroid coordinate to the angle observed from the antenna array. A 48-element power-transferring antenna array radiates a narrow microwave beam toward the direction of the flying position marker. Our developed vision-sensing microwave power transfer system demonstrated a high-accuracy microwave beam tracking toward a fast-moving target.

AbstractMosquitoes detection on the fly through their wing-beat frequency using acoustic sensors provides a way to have accurate data about mosquitoes’ species. Among many reasons why it remains difficult to fight malaria disease, entomologists and malaria research institutions mentioned the fluctuation of longitudinal data about mosquitoes and the lack of continuous monitoring to have real-time information about mosquitoes. Though some existing researches have been using acoustic sensors to detect mosquitoes through their wing-beat, they have never shown properly how detection is achieved. This paper will illustrate clearly how mosquito detection is achieved through the timbre property of its wing-beat frequency using an acoustic sensor. As a proof-of-concept, the experiment was carried out in the lab. Mosquitoes' wing-beats were recorded using acoustic sensors. Then, recorded data were processed by a computer program written in the python programming language, able to single-out unique features of mosquitoes’ wing-beats. Thus, the established concepts will pave the way for real-time mosquito monitoring, a step forward to the fight against malaria disease in African countries and South East Asia.

AbstractA multi-VDD design realizes LSIs to be low power by allowing to use multiple different power supply voltages. In this design, conversion of the voltage amplitude of the signal is necessary. This is usually done by inserting a circuit called a level shifter, between voltage domains as an interface. However, insertion of level shifter has disadvantages in silicon footprint, power consumption, and delays. In this paper, we propose a level-shifter-less approach by increasing channel length. We also propose the optimal design using both channel length modulation and body biasing.

We designed and implemented the proposed approximate edge detector in an FPGA and evaluated with 6 benchmark images. Results have demonstrated that by controlling the tolerance level the execution time is reduced by 15% and the energy dissipation is saved by 3-12% compared with the precise computation at acceptable quality in edge detected images.

The classification features of okras in this study are their length and shape, and they classified into two: Class A and B. A set of pre-processing layers such as background noise cancellation, gray scaling and enhancement, image resizing and reconstruction are utilized to provide a higher detection rate. Moreover, a Convolutional Neural Network (CNN) is implemented to detect the patterns and predict the outputs.

AbstractTechnology that allows robots to autonomously learn their own parameters according to the environment is becoming increasingly important. Autonomously moving robots on wheels have a path to travel, and it is necessary to adjust parameters such as speed and turning amount. Even though it is possible to obtain parameters that travel along the entire route, they are not optimal for partial routes. This is because, as the speed increases, the possibility of derailment due to the difference in curvature. In this paper, we propose to obtain the parameters that can be used to run fast and smoothly along each path and switch them according to the curvature. In order to investigate the running state of the robot, we define the running state of the robot and propose a learning method that applies the policy gradient machine learning to derive the optimal parameters for each curvature. Then, we verify the effectiveness of the proposed method by using actual robots.

AbstractWe propose an importance index that is obtained by taking the partial derivative of the system failure frequency. Importance indexes are very useful in reliable design of systems, because they clarify the priority of components. We emphasize that failure criticality importance is useful because it is known that the user’s level of dissatisfaction is affected by failure frequency. However, failure critical importance cannot distinguish between the effect of failures and its repairs of components, which our index can distinguish them.

AbstractWe present an evaluation of the bit error rate performance of a newly proposed high-speed startup and low-power encoding method in an additive white Gaussian noise environment. The Manchester code currently used for the non-contact IC card requires a phase-locked loop because the intervals of the state transition change. On the other hand, in the proposed encoding method, state transitions occur periodically at the center of a waveform.

AbstractBilinear pairings are widely used for innovative protocols such as ID-based encryption and group signature authentication. According to the current research of the pairings, not only families of pairing-friendly elliptic curves with embedding degrees of multiple of four or six but also that of multiple of three can realize efficient pairings. However, the range of the practical choices of the elliptic curves with embedding degrees of multiple of three is more restricted than that of even embedding degrees by an efficiency reason for the computation of Miller's algorithm with a signed binary representation of a loop parameter. To ease the restriction, the authors propose to compute the Miller's algorithm by swapping the sign of the loop parameter without performance degradation for the ate pairing on such the elliptic curves.

AbstractBilinear pairings are widely used for innovative protocols such as ID-based encryption and group signature authentication. According to the current research of the pairings, not only families of pairing-friendly elliptic curves with embedding degrees of multiple of four or six but also that of multiple of three are attractive choices for practical pairings. However, the pairings on such the elliptic curves cannot benefit from an efficient performing squaring available in a cyclotomic subgroup which plays an important role in fast final exponentiation. As one of the candidates of replacements of the squaring, the authors consider an efficient performing cubing available in the cyclotomic subgroup.

Using Negative Resistance Boosting (NRB) method, the proposed crystal oscillator overcomes the conventional Pierce crystal oscillator’s long start-up time issue (which is in milliseconds range). The crystal oscillator is implemented in a 65-nm CMOS technology, achieving a fast start-up time around 502 μs at 40-Mhz with 3.3V supply voltage. An Automatic Amplitude Control (AAC) feedback method keeps monitoring of the output swing of the oscillator and decides boosting/steady mode of the oscillator.

AbstractPairing-based cryptography has received much attention as an encryption method for realizing advanced cryptography such as ID-based encryption and searchable encryption. In a pairing-friendly elliptic curve of embedding degree 10, calculation cost of multiplication and squaring on extension fields of degree 5 are related to efficiency of pairing. Therefore, it is necessary to select an efficient multiplication and squaring algorithms on the extension field of degree 5. To apply these algorithms, the authors implement a pairing on an elliptic curve of embedding degree 10 with type-II all-one polynomial extension field (AOPF) of degree of 5 and optimal extension field (OEF) of degree of 5. As a result, the computational complexity of pairing with the expanded AOPF of degree 5 are almost 7.4% efficient than that of the expanded OEF of degree 5.

AbstractImage watermarking is a technology that enables copyright protection of images, but causes a deterioration of host image. The purpose of this paper is to suppress the quality degradation of the cover image. Our methods divides the image into similar nonoverlaped blocks for each pixel using the watershed segmentation, and embeds a watermark of spread sequence. This division narrows the range of pixel values in the block, so that a smaller watermark can be embedded. The embedding approach in the proposed method uses the smear transform. As a result, a watermarked image can be generated while suppressing the image quality deterioration.

AbstractIn this paper, we discuss a 3-D mesh watermarking scheme with optimized multiple histograms. Watermarking algorithms exist as one of technologies used to protect a copyright of digital data. The conventional methods choose embedded bins in the histogram without accounting for the number of elements, and lead to decrease a robustness or increase a visual change. Our method introduces multiple histograms from a host 3-D mesh for selecting bins with a smaller number of elements in the multiple histograms. In the proposed approach, we utilize a cylindrical coordinate system instead of the Cartesian coordinate to generate two histograms. This modification reduces the total distance of moved vertices by watermark embedding. As a results, the proposed watermarking gives a superior visual quality to other previous watermarking with a single histogram.

AbstractIn this paper, we propose a method for adjusting the sharpness, and in the meantime, it can enhance the smoothness of the black-and-white and color images simultaneously. Our filter can be divided into two terms, the smoothing filter and the sharpening filter. Both filters are connected with the binding filter used to define the filter weighting for a suitable area. The binding filter that we design based on a nonlinear combination of nearby image point values. The Laplacian filter is applied for constructing the binding filter that is designed similar to the Gaussian distribution function. The Gaussian Smoothing (GS) filter and High Boost (HB) filter are employed to construct the example of our hybrid filter. The processed image is compared with filtered image by the GS filter, HB filter, and bilateral filter for observing our filter performance, both the black-and-white images and color image. The experimental results show that our proposed filter can maintain the dominant properties of both GS filter and HB filter. It can reduce the noise in the flat area, and at the same time, it can increase the image sharpness in the edge region.

AbstractThe ASEAN IVO project currently supports the research related to GNSS and ionospheric data products for disaster prevention and aviation in low-latitude regions. In vehicle navigation, Real Time Kinematic (RTK) positioning distorted from the environment often contaminates the measurement vectors (such as position or speed of a rover). In this situation, the conventional Kalman filter with a linear motion model could not reduce positioning errors sufficiently due to existing bias. Hence, the measurement bias compensation method based on the mean of residual vectors is proposed. We modify the conventional Kalman filter by including this compensation in the estimation step. We test the algorithm in both of the simulations and actual experiments. From the results, the proposed method outperforms the baseline method in terms of positioning error by 60% and 12% for the simulation test and the field test respectively.

AbstractThe ASEAN IVO project currently supports the research related to GNSS and ionospheric data products for disaster prevention and aviation in low-latitude regions. In the positioning system, the atmosphere is the main medium along the propagation path that includes some ions, water vapor, and noise. These are the causes of the propagation delay time especially the ions in the ionosphere. At the present, there are many Global Positioning System (GPS) stations worldwide. Therefore, we can check the performances of the positioning system by using the positioning error calculation. In this work, the positioning errors are calculated from the 16 GPS stations at the low geomagnetic latitude region (Thailand) with the single frequency algorithm on a disturbance day. Then, we compute the 95-percentile and the maximum of the positioning errors. The results show approximately the difference of 95-percentile value 1.799 meters on the horizontal axis and 2.289 meters on the vertical axis and maximum positioning error can be up to 11.413 meters on the disturbed time on the disturbance day.

AbstractThis paper proposes novel iris detection by analysis of abstracted contour graph, which is robust against obstacles such as eyelashes and eyelids, in order to achieve a high precision of the iris detection even for low image quality. The analysis of abstracted contour graph is a method to evaluate topological features of contour curves, such as the pupil and iris, effectively reducing the influence of obstacles and extracting true contour curves. It performed the experimental evaluation of the iris detection by the proposed approach using 500 iris images from the iris image database CASIA-IrisV3-Lamp. As a result, it was confirmed that the iris detection rate of the previous studies were 98%, whereas the proposed method improved to 99%.

AbstractVideo frame interpolation is a method that estimates an intermediate frame between two consecutive frames and makes the video playable at a high frame rate or slow motion. Since video frame interpolation using deep neural networks should produce good results for unseen arbitrary videos, we apply an online refinement, which refines a network’s weights by learning new instances in online manner. Since effective online refinement should select useful subset of instances, we introduce several rules using simple metric...

AbstractImage steganography hides secret information in an image called cover image so naturally that the other users can not recognize the existence of information in the revealed image. This paper deals with an approach to recover the hidden image information from image steganography. The proposed approach investigates that the decoded hidden image information is a normal image or not. The normal and incorrectly decoded abnormal images have been trained using a deep neural network model and entropy features. The discrimination is processed with image patches since the information may be partially embedded in the cover image. The experiments are performed with respect to the various data capacities. The proposed approach discriminates and recovers the hidden image information automatically from a tremendously large number of steganography encoding methods.

AbstractThis paper proposes a TDMA noise-immune DC-DC boost converter with a dead-time controller for AMOLED displays to improve power efficiency and to supply a stable output voltage for AMOLED displays. The dead-time controller detects rising and falling dead time using a dead-time pulse generator to minimize the dead time of a P-N power transistor. The converter has a TDMA noise-reduction circuit to reduce the output voltage fluctuation when TDMA noise comes in. The proposed DC-DC boost converter was designed using a 0.18 μm BCDMOS process. Simulation results show that the boost converter has an output voltage of 4.6 V for an input voltage range of 2.9 V to 4.4 V and reduces the undershoot by 8 mV and overshoot by 5 mV. In addition, the power efficiency is 43% to 95% for a load current range of 1 mA to 100 mA.

AbstractIn sound source separation, a method forming directly the directivity of the microphone array has been proposed. Although the method is two sound source scenario has already been revealed, it is unknown for the multiple source scenario. In the multiple source scenario, it is natural to assume a wide range of source arrangement. Therefore, sound source localization with a wide-angle arrangement is performed. The sensitivity of the localization differs depending on the source direction. The localization performance to the source arrangement is verified.

AbstractIn this work, we focus on the process variation of STT-MRAM which made the high error probability on writing '1'. Recently, the dynamic differential code has been proposed to reduce the Hamming weight, however, it confronts with the error propagation. We then propose the weight reduction codes which minimizes the Hamming weight of codewords. The weight reduction codes can be performed as block-centric approach and page-centric approach. As a results, the weight reduction code with block/page-centric approach outperforms the dynamic differential code at any Hamming weight distribution since the error propagation dose not occurred.

AbstractThis paper proposes an autoencoder based multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) communication system. The proposed autoencoder learns and optimizes for only line of sight (LOS) component of Rician channel. In addition, we adopt multi-dimensional constellation (MDC) in autoencoder, where it is obtained during learning process of autoencoder by adjusting hyperparameter. Simulation results show that our proposed autoencoder using MDC achieves better symbol error rate (SER) performance compared to conventional communication system. Furthermore, we confirmed that proposed autoencoder can be applied to random Rician flat fading channels with fading components and channel variation terms.

KeywordDeep learning, Individual household energy bills prediction, Gated recurrent units
AbstractEnergy bills are one of the most significant regular payments made by any household. The accurate estimation of the energy bills can help people make better decisions on their energy use. However, it is difficult for people to predict their monthly energy bills because of many influencing factors, such as weather and progressive rates. In this paper, we propose a deep learning-based prediction method of the energy bills for individual households, considering the weather. First, we proposed a gated recurrent unit-based model that can incorporate weather and date information and predict energy usage of electricity, water, and gas. Then, a weighted mean squared error is adopted for training of the proposed model for better accuracy. Finally, the predicted energy usage using the proposed model are converted to a monthly energy bill. The proposed approach is verified on the dataset consisting of energy usage data of 2,234 households and weather data of the Korea Meteorological Administration. The results show that our approach can accurately predict the energy bills of individual households with a small average error of 3,892 won.
