NFC Approach: Towards a Simple Interaction
Nowadays, there are devices with great computing capabilities and these in different places around us. This technology opens us new possibilities and allows us the simple and easy interaction between user and computer. We ...
MoMo: A Framework Proposal for Patient Mobile Monitoring
In this paper, a patient mobile monitoring enabling framework is presented. To this end, biometric devices (e.g. glucometers, blood pressure meters) are used to send data to the mobile phone via technologies such as NFC ...
Numerical analysis of the straightening process of thin plate structures by elastic FEM based on the inherent strain method
Welding distortion is practically an expected feature in shipbuilding, with a few exceptions; when thick plates are used, for example. Nowadays, the trend is to use thinner plates in order to reduce weight, aiming to reduce ...
Décomposition d’Images Fondée sur l’Analyse de la Régularité Locale: Application au Codage Hybride d’Image
La représentation hybride d'image utilise conjointement la décomposition en ondelettes pour l'information structurée et la modélisation paramétrique pour les textures. Dans ce cadre, nous proposons un algorithme qui décompose ...
Study of The Corrosion Products Formed on Carbon Steels in The Tropical Atmosphere of Panama
Mössbauer spectroscopy and X-ray powder diffraction (in selected samples) have been used to characterize corrosion products on carbon steels after atmospheric exposure to the tropical Panamanian locations of Panama and ...
Model for the Evaluation of Educational Quality Using Virtual Learning Environment
This article describes a model for the evaluation of educational quality using a virtual learning environment. This model describes quantitative and qualitative aspects that are based on a set of quality attributes and ...
Reliable, Built-in, High-Accuracy Force Sensing for Legged Robots
An approach for achieving reliable, built-in, high-accuracy force sensing for legged robots is presented, based on direct exploitation of the properties of a robot’s mechanical structure. The proposed methodology relies ...
Nitrous Oxide Fluxes from a Commercial Beef Cattle Feedlot in Kansas
Emission of greenhouse gases, including nitrous oxide (N2O), from open beef cattle feedlots is becoming an environmental concern; however, research measuring emission rates of N2O from open beef cattle feedlots has been ...
Sistema de Evaluación y Seguimiento Académico y su Aporte a los Procesos de re-acreditación de Carreras en la Universidad Tecnológica de Panam
(Engineering Innovations for Global Sustainability: Proceedings of the 14th Latin American and Caribbean Conference for Engineering and Technology, 07/22/2016)
Diabetes Patients' Care based on Mobile Monitoring
In this paper, we propose a new architecture for diabetes patients. These applications allow the monitoring, patient selfcontrol and communication between patient and doctor. Moreover, as an important study case, we present ...
