The present invention describes a head restraint system for a vehicle. The head restrained system comprises a head restraint cushion connected to headrest rods. The swivel mechanism comprises swivel rods, dampers and springs. The angular movement of the head restraint cushion is controlled by the damper movement on application of load on the head restrained cushion, where the damper movement is based on the amplitude and duration of load being applied on head restrained cushion. Another embodiment of the present invention describes a head restraint system comprising a movable assembly and a stationary assembly. The movable assembly comprises slotted guide plate, flat plate and slotted guide column. The stationary assembly comprises guide rod, and linear guide way. The movable assembly and stationary assembly are connected using a linear damping unit, where the linear damping unit is placed inside the slotted guide column.

Fault-prediction techniques aim to predict fault prone software modules in order to streamline the efforts to be applied in the later phases of software development. Many fault-prediction techniques have been proposed and evaluated for their performance using various performance criteria. However, due to the lack of putting their performances in proper perspective, one significant issue about the viability of these techniques has not been adequately addressed. In this paper, we propose an adaptive cost evaluation framework that incorporates cost drivers for various fault removal phases, and performs a cost-benefit analysis for the misclassification of faults. Accordingly, our study focuses on investigating two important and related research questions regarding the viability of fault prediction. First, for a given project, are the fault prediction results useful? In case of an affirmative answer, then we look for how to choose a faultprediction technique for an overall improved performance in terms of cost-effectiveness. We used the proposed framework to investigate the usefulness of various fault-prediction techniques. The investigation consisted of performance evaluation of five major fault-prediction techniques on nineteen public datasets. Here, we found fault prediction useful for the projects with percentage of faulty modules less than a certain threshold, and there was no single technique that could provide the best results in all cases i.e for all nineteen project datasets. © Computer Society of India, 2013.

Camera sensors that are made of silicon photodiodes and used in ordinary digital cameras are sensitive to visible as well as Near-Infrared (NIR) wavelength. However, since the human vision is sensitive only in the visible region, a hot mirror/infrared blocking filter is used in cameras. Certain complimentary attributes of NIR data are, therefore, lost in this process of image acquisition. However, RGB and NIR images are captured entirely in two different spectra/wavelengths; thus they retain different information. Since NIR and RGB images compromise complimentary information, we believe that this can be exploited for extracting better features, localization of objects of interest and in multi-modal fusion. In this paper, an attempt is made to estimate the NIR image from a given optical image. Using a normal optical camera and based on the compressed sensing framework, the NIR data estimation is formulated as an image recovery problem. The NIR data is considered as missing pixel information and its approximation is done during the image recovery phase. Thus, for a given optical image, with NIR data being considered as missing information, the recovered NIR data gives the corresponding NIR image. The motivation behind using compressed sensing for NIR estimation is that, it uses a 'Dictionary Learning Technique' which is capable of retaining a linear relationship between the color image feature values with NIR data. Using this proposed method, we have been able to estimate NIR images directly from optical images with reconstructed PSNR values ranging from 10 to 20.5 dbs. Visual examination of the estimated data also concurs that there is a good match between the estimated and original NIR images. In the automotive domain, the proposed method would help in a myriad of ADAS applications that use optical cameras viz. night time pedestrian detection, collision avoidance, traffic sign recognition etc. Copyright © 2015 SAE International.
