  • Automatic location of IC design errors using an e-beam system 

    BOLAND, FRANCIS MORGAN (IEEE, 1988)
    The ADVICE system discussed is an enhanced CAD (computer-aided design) linked E-beam tester to locate automatically design errors on custom VLSI devices. The goal is met by building a set of procedures to drive the interactive ...
  • Case study of an interdisciplinary problem-based engineering design course 

    TORRANCE, ARCHIBALD ANDREW; WEST, ROGER PLUMER; O'KELLY, BRENDAN; BURKE, MARTIN J; BOLAND, FRANCIS MORGAN (2008)
    This paper describes an interdisciplinary problem-based engineering design course taken by about 170 students in the second year of the Bachelor of Engineering degree program at Trinity College Dublin. The course runs ...
  • A Comparative Error Analysis of Audio-Visual Source Localization 

    BOLAND, FRANCIS MORGAN; PITIE, FRANCOIS; KOKARAM, ANIL CHRISTOPHER (2008)
    This paper examines the accuracy of audio-video based localization using multiple cameras and multi-microphones. Covariance mapping theory is used to determine the accuracy of audio and video based localization. Both ...
  • Deconvolution in real time of noisy signals 

    BOLAND, FRANCIS MORGAN (IEE, 1982)
    This paper presents an analysis of the constrained least squares filter and a feedback structure is derived which shows the noise cancelling properties of the filter. Using an identification algorithm, it is shown how the ...
  • Depth Perception in Interactive Virtual Acoustic Environments using Higher Order Ambisonic Soundfields 

    BOLAND, FRANCIS MORGAN (IRCAM (Institut de Recherche et Coordination Acoustique/Musique), 2010)
    In this paper, we present an investigation into the perception of source depth in interactive virtual auditory environments in the context of Higher Order Ambisonic (HOA) reproduction. In particular, we investigate the ...
  • Dynamic Time Warping for Acoustic Response Interpolation: Possibilities and Limitations 

    BOLAND, FRANCIS MORGAN (2009)
    We present a novel method for the interpolation of the direct and early reflection components in acoustic impulse responses. The method utilizes Dynamic Time Warping for automated temporal alignment of the sparse reflections. ...
  • Implementation of Project Based Learning in a Large Engineering Programme 

    KELLY, KEVIN; MC GOLDRICK, CIARAN SEAMUS; PAVIA, SARA; BOLAND, FRANCIS MORGAN; O'KELLY, KEVIN; BENNETT, GARETH (2010)
    The role of the engineer in industry has evolved, with today?s engineering businesses seeking engineers with abilities and attributes in two broad areas - technical understanding and enabling skills. Institutions within ...
  • A method for source-microphone range estimation in reverberant environments, using an array of microphones of unknown relative position 

    BOLAND, FRANCIS MORGAN (IEEE, 2006)
    Estimating the range between an acoustic source and a microphone is a central problem in microphone-array processing. Although many approaches have been proposed in the literature, these tend to require knowledge of the ...
  • Motion model selection in tracking humans 

    BOLAND, FRANCIS MORGAN (IET, 2006)
    The performance of many human tracking algorithms rely on accurate motion models. Due to the nature of human motion it is often difficult to determine the suitability of a chosen model. It is typically the case that over ...
  • A Note on the Convergence Analysis of LMS Adaptive Filters with Gaussian Data 

    BOLAND, FRANCIS MORGAN (ISI Web of Science, 1988)
    Necessary and sufficient conditions fur the convergence of LMS adaptive filters with Gaussian data have been established by Horowitz and Senne [3], with the recent support of Feuer and Weinstein [4]. A feature of both ...
  • ON THE STABILITY OF TWO-DIMENSIONAL DISCRETE-SYSTEMS - COMMENT 

    BOLAND, FRANCIS MORGAN (ISI Web of Science, 1981)
    This correspondence shows that independent necessary conditions and sufficient conditions for the asymptotic stability of two-dimensional discrete linear systems presented by Ahmed can be readily obtained from previous results.
  • Watermarking digital images for copyright protection 

    BOLAND, FRANCIS MORGAN (IEE, 1996)
    A watermark is an invisible mark placed on an image that is designed to identify both the source of an image as well as its intended recipient. The authors present an overview of watermarking techniques and demonstrate a ...
  • Watermarking digital images for copyright protection 

    BOLAND, FRANCIS MORGAN (IEE, 1995)
    A watermark is all invisible mark placed on an image that can only be detected when the image is compared with the original. This mark is designed to identify both the source of a document as well as its intended recipient. ...
