Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR) systems have seen substantial improvements in the past decade; however, not for all speaker groups. Recent research shows that bias exists against different types of speech, including non-native accents, in state-of-the-art (SOTA) ASR systems. To attain inclusive speech recognition, i.e., ASR for everyone...

Mankind is exhausting natural resources. Therefore, the need to transform the linear material flows towards circular chains is increasing. Steel is a material that is produced and used globally and has high potentials for recycling. However, in the maritime sector, steel is currently barely recycled, let alone reused in a more direct way....

Modern communication systems have a strong need for low-cost and high-stability frequency references. Although low-cost crystal oscillators can easily be realized and are available to the market in large quantities, crystal oscillators with frequency stability in the ppb(10^{-9}) range over a wide temperature range are only available at high...

Currently, as the utilization of offshore wind energy continues to increase, floating wind turbines are expected to be widely used. As the fixed system of the turbine, the safety of the mooring chain has gradually attracted the attention of researchers. Mooring chains immersed in seawater are mainly subjected to various mechanical loads and...

For radar imaging, resolution and dynamic range are two critical metrics to measure image quality. MIMO array exploits the spatial diversity of transmitters and receivers to achieve high cross-range resolution with fewer antennas than array-based imaging.<br/> Generally, to make full use of the sparsity, at least the transmit array or the...

The scheduling algorithm of the printer is an important factor that affects printing efficiency. For current printers, paper scheduling often follows the first-in-first-out principle, so it is often not optimal. The printer system is a type of semi-cyclic discrete-event system with synchronization but no concurrency. The system contains a set of...

E-bike sharing has gradually gained popularity in recent years, while the research in this field is still quite limited. This study applies data-driven methods, mainly demand pattern analysis, to facilitate the development of operational strategies in a cost-effective and operator-friendly way. Demand pattern is analysed in an innovative spatial...

Estuarine intertidal flats comprise valuable ecosystems and act as an important sediment source for the adjacent salt marsh systems. However, accelerating sea-level rise threatens the mudflats and associated ecosystems, where the mudflat accretion lag behind sea level rise. A reliable forecast on the morphological developments of the mudflat...

In this design, we propose a new method to process the large static signal in the received signal of Doppler ultrasound brain imaging. Through a reproduction-compensation method, a medium resolution ADC and a DAC are used to replace the high-resolution ADC used in the past for the dynamic Doppler signal observation.

Masonry is one of the most common building materials globally due to its ease of construction, price, durability and fire resistance. Its heterogeneity and orthotropic nature make its mechanical behaviour rather complex, highlighting the importance of an appropriate constitutive model to describe such behaviour accurately. In literature, most of...
