Abstract

Image fusion is the process of integrating two or more images into a multispectral image, in which the achieved fused image includes both the high resolution spatial information of the image and the color information of the multispectral image. Wavelet transformation is a mathematical tool for signal processing which a lot of attention has been recently to it. Wavelet based image fusion methods have been reasonably effective in combining perceptually important image features. The other tool which should be utilized for image fusion is the features of the images. This step can help detecting pixel by pixel of the images regions with more accuracy and can be performed by different features. One of the robust features in image processing is invariant moments. invariant moments are a set of feature vectors which are invariant under shifting, rotation and scaling. This approach can be used to extract the global features for pattern recognition due to their discrimination power and robustness. The fusion method based on the above invariant moments and wavelet integration concept is employed in this paper. Final results show that the proposed method has a better efficiency in comparison with recent proposed techniques.

Abstract

One of the important tools of planning in the context of land use is utilizing land use capitations which have fundamental role in preparing urban plans and the method of distribution and division of urban lands, but the set of studies and analyses that have been done in this context, show that the planning system of Iran's capitations are principally facing fundamental theoretical and practical difficulties, thus the collection of methods and techniques of determining urban capitations are either in loss of the concept of required land use planning and comprehensiveness or the needed defaults for the right usage of them in the urban plans of Iran, don’t exist. The use of urban lands and the way of distributing their location space is one of the most important applications in order to optimize the use of urban space, urban land use planning constitutes the main core of urban planning. Today, as a result of unplanned urbanism, lack of organization in the characteristics of urban land use has emerged. In order to improve urbanism quality, organizing the urban land use holds a lot of importance. In this article, the problems and shortcomings of each use are analyzed in both quantitative and qualitative manners, and in accordance with the geographical, economical and physical conditions of the city and according to sustainable development discussions, the debate of capitations and common standards in urbanism, and by utilizing Geographical Information system (GIS), the uses have been analyzed and assessed. The results of the analyses which have been done, are edited as the presentation of optimum situation for each use and also as overall suggestions and guidelines. Although there is a gap between this and the global standards, in this regard what can be effective in solving the problems are such as: variety of uses, an increase in the quality of uses performance, suitable access to them and distribution of service in the areas dependent on the cities.

Abstract

In this paper we focus on the impact of knowledge management (KM) on Customer relationship management (CRM), one of the key strategic tool for all companies, especially in the current competitive environment. Moreover, customer knowledge is an important issue for CRM implementation. Reviewing the literature, we found many studies that analyze the crucial role played by KM initiatives as determinants of the success of CRM. Moreover, we found also diverse studies that show high rates of failure when implementing that strategy, so there is still no integrated conceptual framework to guide companies to their successful implementation. In this paper, with data of some Iranian hotels, we examine the relationships between KM and CRM success using a structural equation model. The main contribution is that having knowledge management capabilities is not sufficient for the success of CRM, but there are other factors to consider. In particular, organizational factors indeed impact CRM success and they appear to be intermediaries of the impact of other factors (KM capabilities/technological/customer orientation factors) in the success of CRM (in financial and marketing terms).

Abstract

An adaptive PID decoupling control strategy based on Radial Basis Function (RBF) neural network (NN) is presented in this paper. Quadrotor UAV is a kind of under actuated system with multiple inputs and strong coupling, manual optimization of PID control parameter for the quadrotor aircraft is time consuming, and it is difficult to achieve good control effect. Based on the theory of optimization in groups, the parameters such as proportion, integration and differentiation of PID controller are tuned on-line using the self-learning ability of RBFNN, and the corresponding decoupling control law is achieved by conventional PID control algorithm. Simulation results show that the dynamic decoupling and completely static decoupling are obtained, the closed loop system has the advantages of higher speed response and stronger robustness.
