Signal Processing

A non-destructive testing system requires multiple system configuration parameters during the operation process. For a given transducer, scanning frequency and number of measurements for averaging are just among those parameters. This work tests the central limit theorem to optimally set these parameters. The authors have designed a compact ultrasound computer tomography scanner from scratch just to test this criterion. It is shown that optimal frequency value changes with respect to the scanning angle for an object with a heterogeneous inner profile.


This dataset contains spectra of 8 types of commodities collected from two different environments. The dataset can be used to study the impact of scanning environments on the spectra distortion


The growing antenna array scale, the uncorrelated fadings between downlink and uplink of frequency division duplex (FDD) or analog beamforming design increases the difficulty of channel sounding or estimation. Non-wireless channel detection or beam weight prediction method is a promising solution to help obtain timely and accurate wireless channel state. Furthermore, beamforming can be enhanced by the powerful sensing capability of cameras.


This letter presents a novel approach to bolster the physical layer security of optical communication systems, specifically within Passive Optical Networks (PONs), through the utilization of device fingerprints. In this proposed scheme, we employ Optical On-Off Keying (OOK) modulation for signal transmission and subsequently extract distinct fingerprint features from the eye diagrams of these OOK signals. These fingerprint features are then subjected to dimensionality reduction via Siamese neural networks.


This dataset protocol details the acquisition of a surface electromyography (sEMG) dataset from the Tibialis Anterior (TA) and Gastrocnemius Lateralis (GL) muscles of 20 healthy adults, with an equal distribution of 10 male and 10 female participants. The data was collected using the Delsys Trigno wireless EMG system during a 30-second walking session. Proper electrode placement on the specified muscles was ensured for accurate signal capture. Ethical considerations were addressed, with approval from the Institutional Review Board and informed consent from participants.


The dataset consists of measurements of four different stages of degradation in low-voltage contactors used for industrial purposes. The measurements were obtained with fiber Bragg grating (FBG) sensors that detect the dynamic deformation generated in switching under different internal components. The measurements were processed and features from PSD, FFT and TSFEL python library were extracted. The features of PSD and FFT were acquired in 40 sliding windows of 50Hz from the signal.


This dataset comprises gunshot audio and supporting data released as part of ShotSpotter Tech Note 098, "Precision and accuracy of acoustic gunshot location in an urban environment".

The data derive from a series of live fire tests of the ShotSpotter Respond gunshot location system conducted in Pittsburgh, PA on December 18th, 2018 by the Pittsburgh Bureau of Police. ShotSpotter uses live fire tests to validate that the deployed sensor density is appropriate for the community in question, and to ensure the system is ready for production use.


JVNV is a Japanese emotional speech corpus with verbal content and nonverbal vocalizations whose scripts are generated by a large-scale language model.

Existing emotional speech corpora lack not only proper emotional scripts but also nonverbal vocalizations (NVs) that are essential expressions in spoken language to express emotions.

We propose an automatic script generation method to produce emotional scripts by providing seed words with sentiment polarity and phrases of nonverbal vocalizations to ChatGPT using prompt engineering.


The simulation experiment is based on Candence 16.6 software, where the tolerance of the resistance (R) is set to 5%, the tolerance of the capacitance (C) is set to 10%, the input is a single-pulse signal (amplitude 5 V, pulse width 10 µs, eriod 2ms), and the working temperature is set to 27 ℃. The operational amplifier(op-amp) uses the actual UA741 pspice model. The experiment includes the soft fault diagnosis of Sallen-Key band-pass filter circuit (TC1), Four-op-amp biquad high-pass filter circuit (TC2), and Leap-frog low-pass filter circuit (TC3).


In this brief, the distributed cubature information filtering method is proposed to solve the state estimation problem of target in passive sensor network. Firstly, the observation system model of bearing-only sensor network is established and analysised. The sensor node pairs only measure the relative angle information, and then the state estimation of the target is realized based on the DCIF algorithm.
