In article , A north-seeking data quality optimization method for a magnetically suspended gyroscope is proposed based on two-position characteristics combined with the north-seeking characteristic principle of the magnetically suspended gyroscope total station theodolite. In the proposed method, the authors established a simple linear regression model based on the linear relationship satisfied by the rotor current of two precise seeking positions and the north-seeking azimuth firstly. Then, calculated the confidence interval of the corresponding rotor current from the a priori value of the north-seeking azimuth. Lastly, recalculated the gyroscope azimuth. The authors test the effectiveness of the method by using the engineering test data, the experimental results show that the method is effective at testing the north-seeking data quality of the gyroscope and correcting directional results. To automatic detect and characterize paper impurities with computer vision, article  proposed a novel two parts evaluation procedure with feature representations using Alternating Direction Method of Multipliers (ADMM) sparse codes. The method is based on an offline training step to obtain sparse coefficients and codebooks via learning extracted features with ADMM optimization, followed by an online detection step to use linear SVM classifier to assess defective paper samples from non-defective ones. The proposed approach bridges the gap between paper impurities evaluation and sparse feature representations, taking advantages of existing ADMM algorithms to handle sparse codes problem.

Article  focused on the problem of moving nodes data collection in WSNs. A moving node can be moving tramcars, moving cars on bridge or autonomous under-water vehicles, etc. However, in reality, the moving nodes have certain constrains on both space and capacity.

Thus, the optimal sink moving path can be determined by solving these models. Experiments show that the models can be applied to small and medium size WSNs with acceptable running time. However, the running time becomes extremely long when the network size is scaled up. Article  improved the nonlinear genetic algorithm and solved the optimization problem of the rod length.

Then, through the real-time collection of interactive network data, the correlation coefficient between the interactive data and the sample library were calculated, in order to overcome the noise interference of the similar data traffic. Meanwhile, the data packets after the similarity filtering were classified as the true behavior or the false behavior by using the KNN algorithm, and then the encryption network behavior was identified automatically by the default threshold of the correlation coefficient in big data environment, and compared with the traditional correlation coefficient method, the recognition efficiency of this method was greatly improved, which reaches to about 94%.
