Car manufacturers are faced with increasingly severe European regulations concerning End of Live Vehicles (ELV) recycling. Issues for the coarse fractions of Automotive Shredder Residue (ASR) are now quite largely studied. However, the European objectives could only be achieved by considering the processing and valorization of the fine ASR fraction (< 2mm) which usually represents 5 to 10 wt.% of shredded ELV. A laboratory study was carried out on the fine ASR fraction. By combining granulometric, gravimetric and magnetic separations, four valorizable fractions were identified. This paper presents the valorization of the finest fraction (< 250 μm) as filler in bituminous concrete. Physical and chemical properties were first determined. Bituminous concrete samples were then prepared with different substitution levels of calcareous filler by fine ASR. Marshall tests (mechanical properties) and leaching tests were performed without compromising results. [less ▲]

Respiratory disease is the principal cause of loss of young cattle worldwide. The syndrome arises from a number of factors, including those involving the animal, e.g., age, general condition and immune status; its environment, e.g., changes in food, temperature and humidity that lead to stress; and the presence of infectious agents, e.g., bacteria, viruses and mycoplasmas. The syndrome, in a method proposed by the author, can be classified into four grades: Grade 1, subclinical disease; Grade 2, compensated clinical disease; Grade 3, noncompensated clinical disease; and Grade 4, irreversible clinical disease. The increase in frequency and economic impact of bovine respiratory disease complex can be correlated with the escalating industrialisation of cattle production. In intensive operations, commingling of animals from multiple sources, exposure to many organisms, stress and management practices are all factors that can lead to disease. The predisposition of cattle, especially beef calves, to respiratory problems is related to their lack of functional pulmonary hardiness. Selection of breeds that demonstrate adequate pulmonary function and sufficient ventilatory reserve may help in the control of the bovine respiratory disease complex, but this approach is difficult to implement and slow to produce results. Prophylactic measures, including vaccination programmes and modifying management practices to reduce stress, also have a place in preventing the bovine respiratory disease complex. Unfortunately, these measures are not always easy to put into operation and cannot completely eradicate the problem. Therapeutic strategies to minimise the economic impact of the syndrome include use of early antibacterial therapy, modulation of the pulmonary inflammatory reaction and correction of mechanical disorders [less ▲]

Future Remote Sensing data will include hyperspectral data more and more. This study frames in the preliminary studies to investigate the possibilities of these types of data. In this framework experimental flights were organised by VITO (Flemish Institute for Technological Research) and OSTC (Federal Office for Scientific, Technical and Cultural Affairs) on 13th of September 2002 with a Dornier 228 aircraft carrying the CASI/SWIR sensor, over different test sites in Belgium. The flights were done by NERC and VITO and framed in the STEREO-program of OSTC. This paper deals with the “Ghent test site” over a peri-urban area, and focuses on the 3D-geometry of these data. These hyperspectral data are characterised by relief-displacement and differences in relief. These displacements occur in a direction away from the centre of the image. For remotely sensed images this is the direction away from the flight-line. In the monoscopic analysis of such images, these displacements will disturb the interpretation, the classification and the mapping of the image information. These distortions can be compensated for with a DEM. Very often this DEM has to come from an external data source such as laser scanning or aerial photography. However, when hyperspectral data is taken stereoscopically, it is possible to derive a DEM from these stereoscopic hyperspectral images, and so avoiding the cost to purchase an external DEM. To obtain stereoscopic imagery, two images were taken with an overlap of 80% in the so called “metrical mode” i.e. with a high spatial resolution (0.5m) and a lower spectral resolution. A third image was taken in “spectral mode”, for interpretation issues. A DEM and orthophoto were generated from the hyperspectral data by means of digital photogrammetry. A number of Ground Control Points were collected for absolute orientation, by means of DGPS. The geometric precision of the DEM and orthophoto derived from these data are evaluated using DEM and orthophoto derived from aerial pictures on different scales. [less ▲]

A novel and generic approach for image classification is presented. The method operates directly on pixel values and does not require feature extraction. It combines a simple local sub-window extraction technique with induction of ensembles of extremely randomized decision trees. We report results on four well known and publicly available datasets corresponding to representative applications of image classification problems: handwritten digits (MNIST), faces (ORL), 3D objects (COIL-100), and textures (OUTEX). A comparison with studies from the computer vision literature shows that our method is competitive with the state of the art, an interesting result considering its generality and conceptual simplicity. Further experiments are carried out on the COIL-100 dataset to evaluate the robustness of the learned models to rotation, scaling, or occlusion of test images. These preliminary results are very encouraging [less ▲]

Cánepa2, K. Trono1 1Instituto de Virología, CICVyA. INTA – Castelar. 2Cátedra de Biologia Molecular, Facultad de Ciencias Exactas, UBA. Buenos Aires, Argentina. El genoma del virus de la leucosis bovina (VLB), como todo retrovirus, presenta en ambos extremos zonas denominadas Long Terminal Repeats (LTRs) de importancia en la regulación de la transcripción. Estas regiones están organizadas en tres zonas llamadas U3, R y U5. La región U3 ha sido ampliamente estudiada y se sabe que contiene los principales sitios que regulan la transcripción viral. Sin embargo, poco se sabe de las regiones R y U5 aunque ha quedado demostrado que ambas zonas contienen asimismo secuencias estimulatorias. Con el objetivo de identificar y caracterizar nuevos elementos regulatorios, en este trabajo se ha llevado a cabo el estudio de secuencias de las regiones R y U5 del LTR 5´ de BLV. El análisis de patrones de reconocimiento de secuencias consenso para factores de transcripción celulares en estas regiones, reveló la presencia de 2 posibles elementos de unión para E2F, ambos en la zona U5, denominados E2F-A y E2F-B, respectivamente. Para analizar la capacidad de unión a factores celulares de las secuencias LTRs se llevaron a cabo ensayos de cambio en la movilidad electroforética (EMSA) y supershift utilizando extractos celulares obtenidos a partir de linfocitos bovinos y empleando los oligonucleótidos U51 y U52 como sondas, donde mapean los elementos E2FA y E2FB, respectivamente. Se observó retardo por la formación de complejos ribo-proteicos en ambos casos pero solo en el caso del complejo U51-E2F pudo ser identificado el factor E2F-4 utilizando anticuerpos específicos. En resumen, estos resultados permiten identificar un nuevo sitio para el factor de transcripción E2F-4 localizado en la región U5 del LTR 5´ de BLV. Este motivo constituye un nuevo elemento regulatorio involucrado en la actividad transcripcional de genes virales y celulares dirigida por los LTRs y podría jugar un rol importante en la replicación viral.

The IMAGE spacecraft obtained the first global images of the proton aurora. One of the discoveries from these images was proton precipitation equatorward of the nominal auroral oval. This precipitation can be observed for approximately 10 minutes immediately following a large solar wind pressure pulse. Various mechanisms have been proposed for producing this precipitation. Here, precipitation due to scattering from electromagnetic ion cyclotron (EMIC) waves is investigated using data from the IMAGE FUV and EUV imagers and in situ data from the Los Alamos geosynchronous spacecraft. In the proposed EMIC wave mechanism, the compression of the dayside magnetosphere enhances the growth rate of the wave instability. These waves scatter hot, ring current protons into the atmospheric loss cone, reducing the proton temperature anisotropy (the free energy source of the waves). Two features of the proton precipitation from these waves require explanation. First, the precipitation pattern may peak at any local time on the dayside between about 09 and 15. Second, the precipitation pattern has limited latitudinal extent (typically less than about 10 degrees) and is often separated from the main auroral oval. The local time peak in the precipitation pattern is related to the characteristics of the solar wind pressure pulse that causes EMIC wave growth. The separation of the precipitation pattern from the main auroral oval is related to properties of the hot and cold plasma within the magnetosphere that enhance EMIC wave growth. [less ▲]

The interaction of precipitating protons in the upper atmosphere involves charge exchange, ionization, elastic and inelastic collisions, and the deposition of energy from the bottom of the F-region to the D-region of the ionosphere. These processes and the transport of incident protons through this range of altitudes has been described through a variety of modeling techniques but there has been a dearth of altitude-resolved observations of proton precipitation with which to validate such models. We present new limb observations of Doppler-shifted Lyman-α proton aurora emissions obtained by the High-resolution Ionospheric and Thermospheric Spectrograph (HITS) aboard the Advanced Research and Global Observation Satellite (ARGOS) that fill this niche. HITS performs limb scans that include tangent altitudes between 90 km and 400 km with approximately 5 km vertical resolution. The Doppler shifts of the proton aurora Lyman-α emissions are measured with 1.5 Angstrom resolution and are used to infer mean energies of the incident protons as a function of altitude. Observed energy-range (dE/dz) relations are compared to those predicted by a Monte Carlo simulation of proton transport in the upper atmosphere. [less ▲]

La relación entre el genotipo y las formas de manifestación patogénica está demostrada para ciertos Retrovirus, y las zonas regulatorias Long Terminal Repeats (LTR) han sido descriptas, entre otros factores, como portadoras de determinantes de patogenia. En el caso del Virus de la Leucosis Bovina (VLB), estudios previos de secuencias llevados a cabo en nuestro laboratorio sobre las zona R-U5 de las regiones genéticas provirales LTR aisladas de 36 animales infectados naturalmente y con diferentes formas de evolución revelaron la presencia de 4 cambios fijos y característicos de provirus aislados de linfosarcoma (LS)(100%), 1 en la región R y 3 en U5. Estas modificaciones están ausentes en la mayoría (16/22) de los provirus aislados de formas asintomáticas (AL/PL). La alta asociación entre los cambios de nucleótidos y las formas de patogenia demostró la existencia de una secuencia de nucleótidos consenso y propia de los aislados de LS en la región U5 del LTR del genoma proviral de VLB. Con el objetivo de analizar si existe una capacidad diferencial de reconocimiento de factores de regulación de la transcripción celular en la célula hospedadora de las secuencias LTRs de aislamientos de distintas formas de patogenia, se utilizaron ensayos de cambio en la movilidad electroforética (EMSA). La evaluación conjunta de los resultados demuestra que existirían diferencias específicas de unión de la región U5 a proteínas del complejo de regulación de la transcripción celular denominadas E2F en relación con las diferentes presentaciones de esta patología. Estos hallazgos aportan datos en relación con la caracterización de esta co-variación de nucleótidos como marcadores de patogenia del VLB, así como también representan un adelanto en el conocimiento de la patobiología del BLV.

This paper presents a segmentation technique based on prediction and adaptive region merging. While many techniques for segmentation exist, few of them are suited for the segmentation of natural images containing regular textures defined on non-rectangular segments. In this paper, we propose a description of regions based on a deconvolution algorithm whose purpose is to remove the influence of the shape on region contents. The decoupling of shape and texture information is achieved either by adapting waveforms to the segment shape, which is a time-consuming task that needs to be repeated for each segment shape, or by the extrapolation of a signal to fit a rectangular window, which is the chosen path. The deconvolution algorithm is the key of a new segmentation technique that uses extrapolation as a prediction of neighbouring regions. When the prediction of a region fits the actual content of a connected region reasonably well, both regions are merged. The segmentation process starts with an over-segmented image. It progressively merges neighbouring regions whose extrapolations fit according to an energy criterion. After each merge, the algorithm updates the values of the merging criterion for regions connected to the merged region pair. It stops when no further gain is achieved in merging regions or when mean values of adjacent regions are too different. Simulation results indicate that, although our technique is tailored for natural images containing periodic signals and flat regions, it is in fact usable for a large set of natural images. [less ▲]

The ocean is an important sink for atmospheric carbon dioxide, and the exchange of carbon dioxide between the atmosphere and ocean plays a critical role in determining the spatial distribution of atmospheric carbon dioxide. However, there is still a great deal of uncertainty in both magnitude and regional patterns of anthropogenic uptake associated with estimates of oceanic carbon fluxes. Using a recently developed technique, exchange of anthropogenic carbon dioxide across the air-sea interface have been estimated from observations of dissolved inorganic carbon and nutrient concentrations and an Ocean General Circulation Model (OGCM) using a Green's function inverse modeling technique. Previous sensitivity studies have shown that model circulation error is an important source of error in the ocean inversion. In order to address the role of ocean circulation biases, inverse estimates of anthropogenic carbon air-sea gas exchange are presented using basis functions from a suite of seven different OGCM's. The robustness of the ocean inversion will be quantified and the effects of differences between approaches to modeling ocean circulation on the ocean carbon cycle will be explored. These results will be discussed in the context of recent atmospheric inverse estimates. [less ▲]

Data acquired from field campaign and hyperspectral airborne sensors were processed to determine the surface soil organic matter of an agricultural area located in Southern Belgium. The method adopted was based on a forward stepwise multiple regression analysis linking soil organic matter and hyperspectral data from two airborne sensors working in the visible and infrared domain. The results were validated successfully from an independent set of sampling points. It is concluded that the hyperspectral remote sensing approach is promising for soil organic matter prediction. Furthermore, this approach could even be improved if disturbance factors are removed. [less ▲]

Within the German Research Initiative INVENT, the partial project „Verkehrliche Wirkung, Recht und Akzeptanz (VRA)“ deals with traffic effects, legal aspects, acceptance and economics of driver assistance systems. This presentation gives examples for the consulting services of VRA as well as for the early simulations of a driver assistance system. Such simulations vary in scale from basic functions over driving situations and traffic situations to traffic scenarios. Results are presented for the basic functions and driving situations for a stop-and-go extension of adaptive cruise control. [less ▲]

The COROT mission is part of the program "Petites Missions" of CNES (French space agency). It implies international cooperation between France, Belgium, Germany, Austria, Spain and the European Space Agency (ESA). COROT aims to perform astroseismology measurements and to detect exoplanets. Long duration observations of stars will be used to detect periodic variations with an afocal telescope followed by a dioptric objective and 4 CCDs. Due to the orbit of the spacecraft (low altitude polar orbit) and even if the observation are performed in a direction perpendicular to orbit plane, the measurements can be disturbed by the straylight reflected on the earth (albedo) that can generate periodic perturbation. CSL is in charge of the design and procurement, with the help of Belgian industries, of a baffle and its protective cover that will be mounted on top of the afocal entrance telescope. The requirements are very stringent from the optical point of view as well as from the mechanical point of view. The rejection of the baffle must be of the order of 10[SUP]13[/SUP] for field angles above 20 degrees while the allocated mass is 19 kilograms. [less ▲]

Sleep is believed to participate in memory consolidation, possibly through off-line processing of recent memory traces. In this paper, we summarize functional neuroimaging data testing this hypothesis. First, sleep deprivation disrupts the processing of recent memory traces and hampers the changes in functional segregation and connectivity which underpin the gain in performance usually observed in subjects allowed to sleep on the first post-training night. Second, experience-dependent changes in regional brain activity occur during post-training sleep. These changes are shown to be related to the processing of high-level material and to be modulated by the amount of learning achieved during the training session. These changes do not involve isolated brain areas but entire macroscopic cerebral networks. These data suggest a role for sleep in the processing of recent memory traces. [less ▲]

The battery management system (BMS) is an important feature for electric (EVs) and hybrid (HVs) vehicles. The BMS has close connections with the vehicle control and command and gives access to real time power available and remaining autonomy. Such information is dramatic and comprises major inputs of the hybrid vehicle strategy on the road. The BMS is obviously related to battery modeling. Electrochemical modeling would be based on the qualification of the intrinsic chemical reactions and would help to define the parameters of the battery. Generally it is hopeless to use this model in such applications, due to all its complexities [less ▲]
