Image registration is an indispensable component in multi-source remote sensing image processing. In this paper, we put forward a remote sensing image registration method by including an improved multi-scale and multi-direction Harris algorithm and a novel compound feature. Multi-scale circle Gaussian Combined invariant moments and multi-direction gray level co-occurrence matrix are extracted as features for image matching. The proposed algorithm is evaluated on numerous multi-source remote sensor images with noise and illumination changes. Extensive experimental studies prove that our proposed method is capable of receiving stable and even distribution of key points as well as obtaining robust and accurate correspondence matches. It is a promising scheme in multi-source remote sensing image registration.
The aim of this work is to model and analyze the behavior of a new smart nano force sensor. To do so, the carbon nanotube has been used as a suspended gate of a metal-oxide-semiconductor field-effect transistor (MOSFET). The variation of the applied force on the carbon nanotube (CNT) generates a variation of the capacity of the transistor oxide-gate and therefore the variation of the threshold voltage, which allows the MOSFET to become a capacitive nano force sensor. The sensitivity of the nano force sensor can reach 0.124 31 V/nN. This sensitivity is greater than results in the literature. We have found through this study that the response of the sensor depends strongly on the geometric and physical parameters of the CNT. From the results obtained in this study, the increase in the applied force has as a consequence an increase in the value of the threshold voltage VTh of the MOSFET. In this paper, we first used artificial neural networks to faithfully reproduce the response of the nano force sensor model. This neural model is called direct model. Then, secondly, we designed an inverse model called an intelligent sensor which allows linearization of the response of our developed force sensor.
The objective of this paper is to propose a reduced-order observer for a class of Lipschitz nonlinear discrete-time systems. The conditions that guarantee the existence of this observer are presented in the form of linear matrix inequalities (LMIs). To handle the Lipschitz nonlinearities, the Lipschitz condition and the Young′s relation are adequately operated to add more degrees of freedom to the proposed LMI. Necessary and sufficient conditions for the existence of the unbiased reduced-order observer are given. An extension to
