Sign Language Recognition Using Leap Motion
Several million people around the world use signs as their main mean of communication. The advances in technologies to recognize such signs will make possible the computer supported interpretation of sign languages. There ...
A Model Proposal for Augmented Reality Game Creation to Incentivize Physical Activity
Obesity and a sedentary lifestyle are relevant issues in today’s society. Even though different resources can be used to approach this problem, technology provides endless possibilities to fight against this problem. This ...
A risk-based methodology for defining the time of intentional controlled islanding
Power systems are operated close to their stability limits and this increases the probability of cascading outages leading to large-area blackouts. To mitigate these phenomena, intentional controlled islanding (ICI) has ...
Distribution Network Model Builder for OpenDSS in Open Source GIS Software
This paper presents a tool to automatically generate distribution network models for the power engineering software OpenDSS. The tool was developed in a free and open source Geographical Information System (GIS) software ...
OpenDSS-Based Distribution Network Analyzer in Open Source GIS Environment
The adoption of low carbon technologies (e.g., photovoltaic systems) is expected to increase in the near future given their contribution to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. However, high penetrations of these new technologies ...
Sign language recognition model combining non-manual markers and handshapes
People with disabilities have fewer opportunities. Technological developments should be used to help these people to have more opportunities. In this paper we present partial results of a research project which aims to ...
