In this paper a new 3-D object identification system is proposed. It is constructed by combining an ultrasonic phase measuring method with an artificial pulse neural network following the physiological knowledge of the auditory processing. Our experimental results show that 3 ultrasonic sensors are sufficient for the identification of objects in the proposed system. © 2000 American Institute of Physics.

    Because of the lack of three-dimensional (3D) high-resolution data and the existence of highly nonelliptic flows, few studies have been conducted to investigate the inner-core quasi-balanced characteristics of hurricanes. In this study, a potential vorticity (PV) inversion system is developed,...
