Calculating the minimum lap or manoeuvre time of a road vehicle has received much attention in the past. Existing solutions to the calculation problem include the quasi-steady-state method (QSS), which is computationally fast but ignores the transient dynamics of the vehicle and does not allow the optimum vehicle path to be determined. At the other end of the spectrum, nonlinear optimisation has been used, but there are associated difficulties with numerical robustness and computational load.
Researchers in the Department of Engineering have developed an algorithm which overcomes these limitations and provides a computationally efficient and numerically robust solution by formulating the problem as a convex optimisation. Given a set of vehicle parameters and road boundary geometry, the algorithm calculates the optimum path, speed, steering and drive/brake controls to minimise the lap or manoeuvre time of the vehicle. The results from the software have been validated against results from a nonlinear optimisation algorithm. Use of the software requires the industry-standard MATLAB® program and access to a Quadratic Programme Solver.
The software has application in the automotive and racing car industries.
CAM2 is a new fitting software package that enables hearing aids to be tailored to an individual’s needs, resulting in improved hearing quality. All modern hearing aids include multi-channel amplitude compression and the characteristics of the compression need to be set to suit the individual hearing-impaired person. CAM2 has been developed to provide a superior solution for the tailoring of wide-band hearing aid parameters, using the audiogram alone and is an essential new tool in the audiology field.
CAM2 is available for licensing to hearing aid manufacturers and providers and for academic research purposes. If you are a hearing aid user interested in having CAM2 used in the fitting of your hearing aid, please contact your hearing aid provider and ask them to get in touch with us directly.
The ICM+® computer software programme provides a real time analysis of measurements obtained from subjects in clinical trials in an intensive care or neurosurgical environment.
A non-exclusive licence with standard terms and conditions is available for the ICM+® software.
To obtain a licence tailored to your needs:
2) We will then send you the quote for the licence (including the quote for consultancy work if requested)
3) If you wish to proceed, we’ll draft the licence (and consultancy agreement if requested) based on our standard template and send to you.
4) To proceed, print 2 copies of the licence agreement (and consultancy agreement if requested) and have both signed by an authorised official of your organisation (and by the Head of the Research Group in the case of the licence) and mail both original signed agreements to:
Cambridge Enterprise Ltd
University of Cambridge
3 Charles Babbage Rd
Both agreements will be signed and one original will be returned to you at the address on the agreement. You will then be invoiced and the ICM+® software will be made available to you to download (or ready for installation via consultancy if requested).
5) Should you wish to continue to download new releases of updates to the software via the ICM+® website: http://www.neurosurg.cam.ac.uk/pages/ICM/ (with up to 1 day off site support services included over 2 years), then download the maintenance agreement and enter your company name, full registered address and VAT number on page 1 of the agreement and follow the instructions as per 4) above, providing your contact details (name, job title, email, telephone and fax number) for subsequent invoicing.
JBIG-KIT is a software implementation of the JBIG1 data compression standard (ITU-T T.82), which was designed for bi-level high-resolution image data such as scanned documents. This library is available in portable C code and has been widely used in fax products, printer firmware and drivers, and document management systems. The package includes a variant implementation of just the ITU-T T.85 profile, with memory management optimized for embedded and fax applications.
