For the English Catholic Sports College, based in Westgate, see Ursuline College, Westgate-on-Sea.Ursuline College is a small, Roman Catholic liberal arts women's college in Pepper Pike, Ohio, United States.

Ursuline College offers a diverse spectrum of undergraduate and graduate studies within the Catholic tradition of education. The College offers 30 undergraduate, 11 graduate programs, and a Doctorate of Nursing Practice. Although Ursuline College is considered to be a college that focuses primarily on the liberal arts, the institution also offers courses such as nursing and business administration. The school is widely recognized for its Art Therapy program, Breen School of Nursing, and teaching certification program. The campus is situated approximately 10 miles outside of Cleveland and 30 miles outside of Akron. Ursuline's campus is quite spacious and meticulously landscaped, featuring 12 educational buildings such as the Matthew J. O'Brien Recreation Complex, and the newer Bishop Anthony M. Pilla Center. The Pilla Center is quintessentially the essence of the Ursuline College Campus, acting as the social catalyst for students to meet and exchange ideas in the confines of a spectacularly engineered building. The main gathering space has a delightful view of the lake, and is two stories high with crystalline glass windows on adjacent sides, and a luminescent stained glass window that faces the main quadrangle. The building provides a space for commuters on the go, as well as resident students and faculty, for a place to converse or grab some sustenance on the way to class. Additionally, the college's Florence O'Donnell Wasmer Gallery is host to changing display of both professional and student artwork exhibits, and remains open for public consumption Tuesday through Sunday in the afternoon.

Most traffic accidents resulted from distraction, inattention to surrounding cars, and driving fatigue. In order to protect drivers, a real-time lane-detection and front-vehicle distance measurement system that uses a mounted camera inside a vehicle has been designed for safe driving. For lane detection, the lane-boundary information is derived from the fan-scanning-detection method. The system calculates the departure degree according to the angular relationship of the boundaries and sends a suitable warning signal to drivers. For front-vehicle distance measurement, we use the front vehicles shadow underneath it to identify the position of the front vehicle. The real distance is estimated by the use of the functional neurofuzzy network. The experimental results show that the system works successfully in real-time environment. © 2012 IEEE.
