Title: Introduction to MEMS technology and IEEE

Abstract:

MEMS(Microelectromechanical Systems) technology is micrometer-scale devices that integrate electrical, mechanical, optical, biological, thermal and chemical elements. MEMS technology also provides fabrication platform for the realization of small structures in three-dimension on many different substrates and are usually fabricated by similar process to microelectronics, so they provide significant cost advantages when batch fabricated. They also have the advantages of monolithically integrated with Integrated Circuits for higher performance. In this talk, a camera-based distance sensor will be addressed as well as a few physical sensors based on MEMS technology. The sensor consists of conventional camera module with a tunable aperture for obtaining real-time image and range detection simultaneously. The tunable aperture uses light modulation characteristic of liquid crystal (LC) with 3V of operating voltage and 9.84ms of response time. Two images are captured by the camera and the sensor measures the distance by using two images with different depth-of-field to improve depth estimation accuracy. Especially, deep learning technique was applied to solve the DFD problem (Siamese and Resnet structure) with a synthetic experiment on the NYU-v2 dataset to verify the performance of the proposed model. The sensor has no mechanically movable parts, which ensures higher reliability and little spherical aberration. The cost of this sensor is much lower than conventional range sensor for vehicles such as Radio Detection And Ranging (radar) or Light Detection And Ranging (lidar). In the end of the talk, IEEE(Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers) will be introduced which holds over 420,000 membership and runs over 1,800 conferences every year along with the benefits for IEEE members.The tunable aperture uses light modulation characteristic of liquid crystal (LC) with 3V of operating voltage and 9.84ms of response time.

Title: Feature Extraction from Spectral Images of Bills

Abstract:

There appear many faked bills according to the progress of printing technology. This paper considers a method to select the true bill or counterfeit bill by using image processing to use spectral band-data. We try to test using Singapore bills and show the procedure.
