Regression analysis using a blending type spline construction
(Peer reviewed; Chapter; Bokkapittel, 2017-10-18)
Regression analysis allows us to track the dynamics of change in measured data and to investigate their properties. A sufficiently good model allows us to predict the behavior of dependent variables with higher accuracy, and to propose a more precise data generation hypothesis. By using polynomial approximation for big data sets with complex dependencies we get piecewise smooth functions. One way ...
Pre-evaluation and interactive editing of B-spline and GERBS curves and surfaces
(Peer reviewed; Konferansebidrag; Conference object; Bokkapittel; Chapter, 2017-12)
Interactive computer based geometry editing is very useful for designers and artists. Our goal has been to develop useful tools for geometry editing in a way that increases the ability for creative design. When we interactively editing geometry, we want to see the change happening gradually and smoothly on the screen. Pre-evaluation is a tool for increasing the speed of the graphics when doing ...
Predicting Bedside Falls using Current Context
(Peer reviewed; Chapter; Bokkapittel, 2018-02-05)
Each year about a third of the elderly aged 65 or older experience a fall. Many of these falls could be avoided if fall risk assessment and prevention tools where available in the daily living situation. Such tools would need to use the current context as input to predict an imminent fall. This paper presents an approach predicting imminent falls using data from a roof-mounted infrared array combined ...
Rescue of stranded persons. C18. Rescue of stranded passengers in the Arctic
(Forskningsrapport; Chapter, 2018-12)
Since we (the authors) could not be a part of the whole SARex 3 exercise this year, we joined the expedition later than the rest of the participants. We gladly accepted the invitation from the Governor of Svalbard, Kjerstin Askholt, and her staff in Longyearbyen to join their service vessel, MS Polarsyssel, to meet The Norwegian Coast Guard’s vessel, (NOCGV) Svalbard, at the location where the ...
Atomized feedback, an approach to automatic formative assessment
(Peer reviewed; Chapter, 2017-11)
In this article, we describe an approach to give automatic formative evaluation by atomizing the feedback. The mechanics in this approach is a large number of multiple-choice tests. The multiplechoice tests are used as voluntary assignments and gives controlled progression by releasing the tests in an order. Instruction is in the spirit of flipped classroom with short video lectures accompanied by ...
