126 Recognition of 2-D occluded objects and their manipulation by PUMA 560 robotA new method based on a cluster-structure paradigm is presented for the recognition of 2-D partially occluded objects. This method uses the line segments which comprise the boundary of an object in the recognition process. The length of each of these segments as well as the angle between successive ...PUMA 560 robot; Cluster-structure paradigm; 2-D partially occluded objects1985
127 3-D model building for computer visionThis paper presents a Computer-Aided Geometric Design (CAGD) based approach for building 3-D models which can be used for the recognition of 3-D objects for industrial machine vision applications. The objects are designed using the Alpha_1 CAGD system developed at the University of Utah. A new metho...CAGD; 3-D models; Machine vision1985
128 The synthesis of visual recognition strategiesA coherent automated manufacturing system needs to include CAD/CAM, computer vision, and object manipulation. Currently, most systems which support CAD/CAM do not provide for vision or manipulation and similarly, vision and manipulation systems incorporate no explicit relation to CAD/ CAM models. CA...visual recognition; automated manufacturing systems; object manipulation1985
129 Verification of systolic arrays: a stream functional approachWe illustrate that the verification of systolic architectures can be carried out using techniques developed in the context of verification of programs. This is achieved by a decomposition of the original problem into separately proving the correctness of the data representation and of the individual...Verification; systolic arrays; stream function1985
130 Optimal solution of nonlinear equationsWe survey recent worst case complexity results for the solution of nonlinear equations. Notes on worst and average case analysis of iterative algorithms and a bibliography of the subject are also included.1985
131 Segmentation of complex outdoor scenesA new simpler approach to image segmentation via recursive region splitting and merging is presented. Unlike other techniques the kernel of splitting is based on a generalization of a two class gradient relaxation method and merging uses a statistical analysis of variance.Image segmentation; Outdoor scenes; Recursive region splitting; Segmentation algorithm1985
132 Rediflow architecture prospectusRediflow is intended as a multi-function (symbolic and numeric) multiprocessor, demonstrating techniques for achieving speedup for Lisp-coded problems through the use of advanced programming concepts, high-speed communication, and dynamic load-distribution, in a manner suitable for scaling to upward...Rediflow; Multi-function multiprocessors; Lisp-coded problems1985
133 CAGD based 3-D visual recognitionA coherent automated manufacturing system needs to include CAD/CAM, computer vision, and object manipulation. Currently, most systems which support CAD/CAM do not provide for vision or manipulation and similarly, vision and manipulation systems incorporate no explicit relation to CAD/CAM models. CAD...Object manipulation; CAGD1985
134 2-D scene analysis using split-level relaxationWe present a new method for applying multiple semantic constraints based on discrete relaxation. A separate graph is maintained for each constraint relation and used in parallel to achieve a consistent labeling. This permits both local and global analysis without recourse to complete graphs. Here l...Discrete relaxation; Split-level relaxation1985
135 The importance of unknows in Epidemiologic studies1. Epidemiologic study data often include omitted/unobtainable responses (unknowns). In most cases, unknowns are eliminated during data-reduction to facilitate analysis. We examined the effect that elimination of unknowns would have on mortality calculations using data on newborns admitted to a newb...Unknowns; Mortality calculations1985
136 A new local basis for designing with tensioned splinesRecently there has been a great deal of interest in the use of "tension" parameters to augment control mesh vertices as design handles for piecewise polynomials. A particular local cubic basis called p-splines, which has been termed a "generalization of B-splines", has been proposed as an appropriat...Tensioned splines1985
137 CAGD based 3-D visual recognitionA coherent automated manufacturing system needs to include CAD/CAM, computer vision, and object manipulation. Currently, most systems which support CAD/CAM do not provide for vision or manipulation and similarly, vision and manipulation systems incorporate no explicit relation to CAD/CAM models.

138 Combining symbolic and numeric computation on the CRAYIt is now widely accepted that the CRAY supercomputers are very useful for large numeric applications, e.g., Finite Element Analysis, Fluid Dynamics, Image Processing, etc. Much work has been done to make them run efficiently on the CRAY. There has also been some effort to do symbolic computing (Al ...CRAY supercomputers; Symbolic computation; Numeric computation1986
139 Simon II kernel reference manualThe principal objective of Simon II is to provide a flexible and adaptable framework for constructing simulators for a wide variety of parallel systems. A simulator consists of a set of software building blocks. Each building block, i.e. object, simulates a specific component of the parallel system...Simon II; Kernels; Simulators; Parallel systems1986
140 A survey of dextrous manipulationThe development of mechanical end effectors capable of dextrous manipulation is a rapidly growing and quite successful field of research. It has in some sense put the focus on control issues, in particular, how to control these remarkably humanlike manipulators to perform the deft movement that we t...Dextrous manipulation1986

143 Ada-to-silicon compiler study (Final Report 30 Jan 85 - 30 Jun 86)The vision of a system design environment in which both hardware and software components could be designed, tested, and executed was proffered by the late Dr. Elliott Organick1 in 1981. He was impressed by the objectiveness of Ada and the availability of an architecture (the Intel 432) which was sp...ADA language1986
144 Systolic array synthesis by static analysis of program dependenciesWe present a technique for mapping recurrence equations to systolic arrays. While this problem has been studied in fairly great detail, the recurrence equations that are analysed here are a generalization of those studied previously. In a n earlier paper (14] we have showed how systolic arrays can b...Systolic array synthesis; static analysis; program dependencies; recurrence equations1986
145 Complexity of computing topological degree of Lipschitz functions in n dimensionsWe find lower and upper bounds on the complexity, comp(deg), of computing t h e topological degree of functions defined on the n-dimensional unit cube Cn, f : ?Cn Rn,n ? 2, which satisfy a Lipschitz condition with constant K and whose infinity norm at each point on t h e boundary of Cn is at least d...Lipschitz functions1986
