Smart farming is the targeted use of phenotyping for the rapid, continuous, and accurate assessment of plant health in the field. Bioimpedance monitoring can play a role in smart farming as a phenotyping method, which is now accessible thanks to recent efforts to commoditize and miniaturize electronics. Here, we demonstrate that bioimpedance measurements reflect the physiological changes in live plant tissue with induced alterations in their environmental conditions.


The inquiry into the impact of diverse transitions between cross-reality environments on the user experience remains a compelling research endeavor. 

Existing work often offers fragmented perspectives on various techniques or confines itself to a singular segment of the reality-virtuality spectrum, be it virtual reality or augmented reality.

This study embarks on bridging this knowledge gap by systematically assessing the effects of six prevalent transitions while users remain immersed in tasks spanning both virtual and physical domains. 


RITA (Resource for Italian Tests Assessment), is a new NLP dataset of academic exam texts written in Italian by second-language learners for obtaining the CEFR certification of proficiency level.
RITA dataset is available for automatic processing in CSV and XML format, under an agreement of citation.


We present a finite-element-based cohesive zone model for simulating the nonlinear fracture process driving the propagation of water-filled surface crevasses in floating ice tongues. The fracture process is captured using an interface element whose constitutive behavior is described by a bilinear cohesive law, and the bulk rheology of ice is described by a nonlinear elasto-viscoplastic model. The additional loading due to meltwater pressure within the crevasse is incorporated by combining the ideas of poromechanics and damage mechanics.


(i) At t = nTp [where n is an integer and Tp (= 1/f) is the period], the LF’s longitudinal vibration velocity and bending vibration displacement reach the peak values along the −x and +z axes, respectively.


Cryogenic CMOS (cryo-CMOS) circuits are of-
ten hindered by the cryogenic threshold-voltage increase.
To mitigate such an increase, a forward body biasing (FBB)
technique in bulk CMOS is proposed, which can reliably
operate up to the nominal supply without problematic leak-
age currents, thanks to the larger diode turn-on voltage
at cryogenic temperatures. As a result, traditional circuits,
such as pass-gates, can reliably operate down to 4.2 K, and
their performance is augmented, e.g., digital circuits speed-


A 3D WUCT system using a single ultrasound transducer is designed and automated. The dataset consist of the WUCT reconstruction results dataset used to train U-Net based semantic segmentation model.  Also, dataset i) to study the effect of increase in the number of virtual transducer on reconstruction quality and, ii) effect of variation in the applied pulse width on the reconstruction are provided. The U-Net based semantic segmentation model is trained and used to evaluate dice coefficient corresponding to the phantom’s actual profile and reconstructed profile.
