Chapter 21. Cancelable Palm Print Templates Using Gabor Representations and Random Measure

Palm print template security is an important issue in a real biometric system because compromised templates cannot be revoked and reissued. To tackle these problems, in this paper, by measuring the Gabor-based palm print image with a chaotic random matrix, we propose a palm print template protection scheme with provable security and acceptable recognition performance. Firstly, the Gabor is employed to convolute with preprocessed palm print image. Then, to generate the binary cancelable template, the obtained Gabor representation is compared with a chaotic random matrix. The random measure can improve the template’s discriminability. Therefore, the proposed algorithm not only protects the template but also has better performance. The experimental results on Hong Kong PolyU palm print database show that the proposed approach can achieve zero equal error rate (EER) and has large cancel ability.

Chapter 44. Supply Chain Network Equilibrium Under Risk

In this paper, we developed a model of supply chain network, in which both physical and B2C electronic transactions were used by manufacturers and the manufacturers’ risk was considered. The model comprised various decision makers including manufacturers, retailers, and consumers. And the demands associated with the consumers were random. We formulated the equilibrium state of the network by finite-dimensional variational inequality theory. In turn, the logarithmic–quadratic proximal prediction–correction algorithm was designed to calculate the network equilibrium pattern. Several numerical examples were given to illustrate the impact of price ceiling, production capacity constraints, and risk upon the network equilibrium prices and product shipments. The results show that when considering a binding price ceiling on competitive markets, the total profit of manufacturers, and the retailers will decrease.

All the tasks are needed to be associated with four QoS dimensions, namely time, reliability, security, and cost. It is implemented and the advantages of the new algorithm are investigated in a grid simulator called Grid Sim after the simulator has been expanded. The results of the simulation experiments show that this new scheduling algorithm effectively achieves load balancing of resources with comprehensive advantages in time efficiency, and solution accuracy compared to the other two algorithms. The approach can reduce data access latency, decrease bandwidth consumption, and distribute storage site load. It can be applied to resource scheduling in grid computing.

Chapter 60. A Trust Evaluation Method for Distributed Components

If the applications are built by reusing the distributed components, the quality and development efficiency of applications can be significantly improved. However, it is very difficult to select the components with high Quality of Service (QoS) and security because of the openness and dynamics of Internet. Existing trust models are usually established on the base of the historical interaction experience among software entities, and are not entirely suitable for the distributed components with strict requirements on QoS. On account of the problem, a trust evaluation method appropriate to distributed components is presented. The method not only meets the subjective and fuzzy characteristics of trust by being based on fuzzy logic theory, but also helps to solve the problems of selecting trusted components in open network by comprehensively considering the QoS and historical interaction experience.

To inquire into the frequent slips and falls in older adults of myasthenic lower extremities in detail, a method was proposed that could analyze the process of slips and falls with the modified peak of required coefficient of friction (RCOF) and the amplitude of the body center of mass (COM). This method can be used to rapidly detect parameters in each gait cycle, and analyze every instantaneous balance status during walking. According to the results, the key point thresholds of slips and falls have been judged and verified and the theoretical groundwork for slips and falls’ gaits has been established. By comparing the experimental data between no myasthenia and myasthenics, myasthenic older people’s gaits became more and more unstable because of the weak ability of neuromuscular control.

Chapter 67. Fuzzy SVM with a New Fuzzy Membership Function Based on Gray Relational Grade

In dealing with the two-class classification problems, the traditional support vector machine (SVM) often cannot achieve good classification accuracy when outliers exist in the training data set. The fuzzy support vector machine (FSVM) can resolve this problem with an appropriate fuzzy membership for each data point. The effect of the outliers can be effectively reduced when the classification problem is solved. In this paper, gray relational analysis (GRA) is employed to search for gray relational grade (GRG) which can be used to describe the relationships between the data attributes and to determine the important samples that significantly influence some defined objectives. A new fuzzy membership function for the FSVM is calculated based on the GRG. This method can distinguish the support vectors and the outliers effectively. Experimental results show that this approach contributes greatly to the reduction of the effect of the outliers and significantly improves the classification accuracy and generalization.

Chapter 76. Optimization of Tolerance Allocation with Consideration of Assembly Deformation and Quality Loss

Quality loss displays the role of importance in production. The less quality loss, the better characteristic of assembly appeared. In order for minimum quality loss, there exists a large amount of optimal models of tolerance allocation. However, the consideration of influence of assembly deformation is not introduced into these models. In aircraft assembly, thin-walled parts are tending to deform, while the parts of this type ubiquity have their existence in aircraft. Because of this, we have to take into account the assembly deformation in optimizing the tolerance allocation scheme. In this paper, we fist analyze the transfer relation of assembly deformation, then construct the optimal model of tolerance allocation with the consideration of assembly deformation and quality loss, finally, a case study of this methodology is introduced to verify this model.

Chapter 77. Efficient Mixed-Norm Multiple Kernel Learning

Multiple kernels learning (MKL) is a hot topic in the current kernel machine learning field which aims at find a convexity linear combination of based kernels. Current MKL methods encourage spare kernel coefficients combination, unfortunately, when features encode orthogonal data, spareness tends to select only a few kernels, and may discards useful information which lead to poor generalization performance. In this paper, we presented an efficient multiple kernels learning method based on mix-norm in which sparseness and nonsparseness can be compromised using a mixing regularization. Both SVM and MKL could be regarded as special cases of EMNMKL. Then, we developed a rapid gradient descent algorithm to deal with the problem. Simulation experiment results show that the EMNMKL rapidly converges and the average testing accuracy demonstrates that EMNMKL algorithm clearly outperforms SVM and MKL.

They developed a distributed scalable architecture to manage the high computation and bandwidth demands. 3d display shows high-resolution stereoscopic color images for multiple viewpoints without special glasses. This is first real time end-to-end 3d TV system with enough views and resolution to provide a truly immersive 3d experience. Japan plans to make this futuristic television a commercial reality by 2020 as part of abroad national project that will bring together researchers from the government, technology companies and academia. The targeted “virtual reality” television would allow people to view high definition images in 3d from any angle, in addition to being able to touch and smell the objects being projected upwards from a screen to the floor.

Chapter 104. Design and Virtual Test of Vibration-Type Digging Shovel

In order to improve the crushing soil effect of potato harvester, a vibration-type digging shovel with the amplitude and frequency adjustable was designed. The kinematic analysis of this vibration digging shovel was performed. A virtual prototyping model was established based on Solid Works and ADAMS software, and mechanical-hydraulic co-simulation was conducted in ADAMS. The virtual test results showed that: the amplitude of digging shovel was directly proportional to the system pressure; at constant system pressure, amplitude was inversely proportional to frequency; the maximum pressure value of the shovel on soil mass was lower than the breaking strength of potatoes.

Chapter 105. Cooperation Mechanism of Industrial Clusters Based on Pricing Game

This paper introduces a novel perspective to analyze the mechanism of competition or cooperation based on the pricing game. Through the game analysis of price competition based on incomplete information Cournot model, we found that the cooperation strategy seems to be the better equilibrium of game for the oligopolies in those industrial clusters. In simplified situations of pricing competition game in some industrial clusters, we can argue that those industrial clusters contain more than two oligopolistic enterprises, which can more possibly choose the cooperation strategies for the same consideration of the interests. Then this paper partly explains the tacit behaviors among oligopolistic enterprises of industrial clusters becoming more and more pervasive.

Chapter 109. User Experience-Oriented Hierarchical Mechanism of Industrial Design

This paper puts forward a scientific industrial design method-oriented user experience (UE). Combined with investigation and UE relative theory, this thesis considers industrial design knowledge composed of five layers such as strategy, value, structure, framework, and representation. This hierarchical relationship is a mechanism of top–down decision from concepts to details. Due to delivery of knowledge among layers, the system of knowledge nodes is built. Through knowledge input and output in each node, the resolution of industrial design gradually becomes clear. With the study of practical application, the hierarchical knowledge mechanism-oriented UE efficiently comprehends and reuses valuable information and easily finds out product innovation gap.
