  1. 36. Design for social innovation : a case study of Human Centered Design in Khayelitsha

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Urban and Rural Development

    Author : Amanda Larsson; Anna Sunnefeldt Nyberg; [2016]
    Keywords : Human Centered Design; community participation; Khayelitsha; Cape Town; social development; participant observation; landscape architecture; urban planning;

    Abstract : During the last decade the world’s urban population has grown extensively and today more than half of the global population lives in cities. Sub Saharan Africa (SSA) is currently the fastest urbanizing region in the world and the change is concentrated to a few metropolitan areas. READ MORE

  2. 37. Deep Neural Networks for Dynamic Visual Data

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Matematik LTH

    Author : Maria Priisalu; [2016]
    Keywords : Deep Learning; Human pose estimation; Human motion estimation; 3D reconstruction; Long Short-Term Memory LSTM ; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : Given monocular video of people performing daily tasks our objective is to estimate the 3D positions of 32 given joints associated to the human skeleton. Due to the success of deep convolutional networks in image classification, image segmentation and activity recognition we propose to estimate 3D joint positions from video using deep convolutional networks.

  3. 38. Experimental analysis of limitations in the strut-and-tie method

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Avdelningen för Konstruktionsteknik

    Author : Mikael Wahlgren; Niels Bailleul; [2016]
    Keywords : Strut-and-Tie method; Reinforced concrete; Concrete Damaged Plasticity; Fracture energy; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : One of the overall main purposes for a structural engineer is to design structures and structural elements so that they meet society’s safety requirements, yet use as little material as possible. In order to do so, the designer has to understand and simplify a complex reality. READ MORE

  4. 39. Diffuse Reflectance Spectroscopy: Using a Monte Carlo method to determine chromophore compositions of tissue

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Atomfysik; Lunds universitet/Fysiska institutionen

    Author : Lisa Kobayashi Frisk; [2016]
    Keywords : Photonics; Biophotonics; Diffuse Reflectance; Spectroscopy; Monte Carlo; Diffusion; Physics and Astronomy;

    Abstract : In this work, inverse diffusion equation and Monte Carlo methods are used in conjunction with diffuse reflectance spectroscopy to develop a protocol for evaluating the chromophore compositions of tissue mimicking liquid phantoms. A novel two spectrometer system is used which provides real time calibration of any intensity fluctuations of the light source. READ MORE

  5. 40. Test and refinement of a down-scaled actively suspended forwarder

    University essay from KTH/Maskinkonstruktion (Inst.)

    Author : Qingxiao An; [2016]
    Keywords : Scaled vehicle; pendulum arm suspension; rough ground test; Nedskalat fordon; pendelarmsfjädring; ojämn mark; provning;

    Abstract : Cut-To-Length (CTL) logging is the dominating logging method in many parts of the world. CTL logging requires a forwarder for the logs from the felling area to a landing area. Due to the harsh off-road working conditions, a well performed suspension system is necessary for the forwarder. READ MORE
