Study on an automatic sorting system for Date fruits Abstract In the present study, a machine vision based, online sorting system was developed, the aim being to sort Date fruits (Berhee CV.) based at different stages of maturity, namely Khalal, Rotab and Tamar to meet consumers’ demands. The system comprises a conveying unit, illumination and capturing unit, and sorting unit. Keywords Date fruit; Image processing; Khalal; Maturity; Sorting; Rotab and Tamar 1. Date is one of the non-oil export products of Iran that can play an important role in the country’s economy. Ripening process of the Date includes four principle stages, namely; Kimri (immature), Khalal (changing color, not mature), Rotab (mature) and Tamar (ripe) stages. In the present article, a new color space for grading Date fruit is proposed based on maturity stages. i. Grading Dates according to consumer desire, ii. separating Khalal from other Date fruits to avoid its deterioration due to the enzymatic activity of Khalal, and iii. 2. 2.1. 2.2. 2.3. 2.4. 2.5. 3.

NASA Cost Symposium This year the annual NASA Cost Symposium will be sponsored by the Strategic Investments Division. The NASA Cost Symposium is our communities chance to exchange ideas, best practices, methodologies, and lessons learned. The NASA cost analysis community includes all Centers as well as HQ and represents an essential function to the agency. We look forward to seeing the tradition of the Agency’s finest analysts and estimators at NASA continue to make our community better. Recognition of the community’s efforts and affording the community an opportunity to present in a professional forum will continue to foster their individual and community growth as well as improve the overall analysis community at NASA. 2016 Event Status: Complete Date: 23 – 25 August Location: Glenn Research Center, Cleveland, OH Event Agenda: Detailed Version as of Aug 15th, 2016 (pdf) Award Winners: Available (pdf) Presentations: Download Page

WorldWideScience Ваша Библиотека бесплатных электронных книг Robot co-active learning adjusts to context-driven user preferences Researchers at the Cornell University created an algorithm which enables robots to “coactively learn” from humans and make adjustments while an action is in progress. Their approach relies on a combination of machine learning, object and user association, and trajectory adjustment could allow robots to operate more reliably when it comes to object manipulation and safety during human-robot interaction. Assembly lines relying on robots usually have many marks and warnings in assembly areas to increase the safety of people that might be inside them while robots are working. However, most of these robots perform their tasks in memorized routines and accidents do occur. Aside safety, robots being developed to serve as aid in our homes have another set of problems, ranging from handling objects according to their properties, to safety when it comes to their movement or tool handling. The researchers used their algorithm on a Baxter robot from Rethink Robotics.

PLoS: Publication List The range of PLOS titles is expanding and now includes a number of new websites. Below, we describe the role of each group of products and how they fit together to support our mission of leading a transformation in research communication. Original Content These titles vary in the speed of publication, the nature of the peer review and selection process that takes place ahead of publication, and the breadth and nature of content that is published. The PLOS Suite of Journals: - PLOS Biology - PLOS Medicine - PLOS Genetics - PLOS Computational Biology - PLOS Pathogens - PLOS Neglected Tropical Diseases PLOS Currents PLOS Blogs Organization of Content We are also exploring new ways to organize content after publication with PLOS Collections.

PLOS | Public Library Of Science Industry 4.0: Agility in production? | Bosch ConnectedWorld Blog Industry 4.0 is paving the way for a social and technological revolution that will drastically change the entire industrial landscape. Why 4.0? As since the 18th century, when the first Industrial Revolution began, it is the fourth wave of major technological changes. There is brand new video footage available from the German Engineering Association VDMA featuring different Industry 4.0 projects of players such as the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence, Bosch, SAP, Siemens as well as Wittenstein. What this video shows: Industry 4.0 is a sophisticated approach changing the entire global value chain: communication, planning, logistics and production. Actually, Industry 4.0 is a paradigm shift. Direct link to the video “Industry 4.0 – The Technological Revolution continues!” The video brings up some good points and challenges for industry: How can humans get better support for their work in the factory? What does Industry 4.0 mean for Bosch?
