Under the smart engineering system (SES), there is a huge demand for evaluating the efficacy of a large-scale networked intelligent perception system (IPS). Considering the large-scale, distributed, and networked system characteristics and perception task demands, this paper proposes a conceptual system for IPS efficacy evaluation and, on this basis, designs the architecture of the efficacy evaluation system. A networked IPS model is constructed based on domain ontology, an index system is quickly established for efficacy evaluation, the evaluation methods are assembled automatically, and adaptive real-time organization strategies are generated for networked perception based on efficacy estimate. After exploring these key technologies, a prototype system is created for the service-oriented integrated efficacy evaluation platform and used to verify and integrate research results. The research provides support for the efficacy evaluation theories and methods of large-scale networked IPS.

Consumer through their referral behavior could be an effective mechanism for marketers in promoting their products in today’s big data era. In order to explore the ways that the electronic word-of-mouth referral (e-WOM) comprehensively and effectively influence on the film market in the current media ecological environment in China, this research selects Douban, an outstanding representative of China’s online film evaluation platform as the research object and combines the related theories of relationship quality and e-WOM referral behavior to investigate the significant positive influence of the four dimensions of relationship quality (satisfaction, credibility, affection and commitment) on e-WOM referral behavior.

Abstract Background The web-based BeUpstanding program supports desk workers to sit less and move more. Successfully translated from a research-delivered intervention, BeUpstanding has gone through iterative development and evaluation phases in preparation for wide-scale implementation. In the third planned “early-adopters” phase (01/09/2017–11/06/2019), the program was made freely-available online. An integrated delivery and evaluation platform was also developed to enable workplace champions to run and evaluate the intervention within their work team independent of researcher support. Using the RE-AIM (Reach, Effectiveness, Adoption, Implementation, Maintenance) framework, this study reports on the extent to which the program and processes were “fit-for-purpose” for a national implementation trial across the indicators of uptake (reach and adoption), implementation and engagement, and effectiveness for behaviour change. Methods Data were collected via the online surveys embedded in the program and through program access analytics. Descriptive data (with linearized variance for the clustered staff-level data) and results from mixed models (repeated data and clustering for pre-post changes) are reported. Results Despite purposeful limited promotion, uptake was good, with 182 Australian users initially registering (208 total) and 135 (from 113 organisations) then completing the sign-up process. Recruitment reached users across Australia and in 16 of 19 Australian industries. Implementation was inconsistent and limited, with signed-up users completing 0 to 14 of the program’s 14 steps and only 7 (5.2%) completing all seven core steps. Many champions (n = 69, 51.1%) had low engagement (1 day toolkit usage) and few (n = 30, 22%) were highly engaged (> 1 day toolkit usage and surveyed staff). Although only 18 users (7 organisations) performed the pre- and post-program staff evaluations (337 and 167 staff, respectively), pre-post changes showed the program effectively reduced workplace sitting by − 9.0% (95% CI -12.0, − 5.9%). Discussion The program had uptake across industries and across Australia, but implementation and engagement varied widely. Few workplaces completed the evaluation components. In those that did, the program was effective for the primary outcome (workplace sitting). Conducting a planned early adopters phase and a comprehensive evaluation according to RE-AIM helped highlight necessary program improvements to make it more suitable for wide-scale implementation and evaluation.

Based on one simulated skin-electrode electrochemical interface, some electrochemical characteristics based on skin-electrode contact pressure (SECP) for dry biomedical electrodes were analysed and applied in this research. First, 14 electrochemical characteristics including 2 static impedance (SI) characteristics, 11 alternating current impedance (ACI) characteristics and one polarization voltage (PV), and 4 SECP characteristics were extracted in one electrochemical evaluation platform, and their correlation trends were statistically analysed. Second, dry biomedical electrode samples developed by the company and the laboratory, including textile electrodes, Apple watch, AMAZFIT rice health bracelet 1S, and stainless steel electrodes, were placed horizontally and vertically on the “skin” surface of the electrochemical evaluation platform, whose polarization voltages were quantitatively analysed. Third, electrocardiogram (ECG) collection circuits based on an impedance transformation (IT) circuit for textile electrodes were designed, and a wearable ECG acquisition device was designed, which could obtain complete ECG signals. Experimental results showed SECP characteristics for dry electrodes had good correlations with static impedance and ACI characteristics and the better correlation values among 2-10 Hz. In addition, polarization voltages in vertical state were smaller in horizontal state for dry biomedical electrodes, and polarization voltage of electrode pair (PVEP) values for Apple watch bottom was always smaller than ones for Apple watch crown and LMF-2 textile electrode. And the skin-electrode contact impedance of IT textile electrodes was less than the traditional textile electrodes.

The goal of purchasing hand tools is to improve financial outcomes for buyers. These financialgains can come from multiple aspects of hand tools, such as increased productivity, improved product quality, and decreased injury rate. Based on a literature review, current hand tool purchasingdecisions are frequently made by professionals without specialized scientific backgrounds; however, the hand tool selection methods they receive are solely based on ergonomic evaluations. Heuristic evaluation, created by Nielsen & Molich (1990), has been proven effective in discoveringusability issues quickly. Combined with the knowledge from hand tool evaluation literature andNielsen & Molich’s (1990) heuristic evaluation platform, two versions of financially orientatedhand tool heuristic evaluations were created: a buyer version and a seller version. The buyer versionhelps hand tool buyers make financially orientated purchasing decisions; the designer version helpsquickly assess the financial viability of the hand tool design under review.

By using a mixer to down-convert the high frequency components of a signal, digital bandwidth interleaving (DBI) technology can simultaneously increase the sampling rate and bandwidth of the sampling system, compared to the time-interleaved and hybrid filter bank. However, the software and hardware of the classical architecture are too complicated, which also leads to poor performance. In particular, the pilot tone used to synchronize the analog and digital local oscillators (LO) of mixers intermodulates with the high frequency components of the signal, resulting in larger spurs. This paper proposes a synchronous mixing architecture for the DBI system, where the LO of the analog mixer is synchronized with the sampling clock of the analog-to-digital converter. Its hardware and software are simplified—the pilot tone used to synchronize the LOs can also be removed. An evaluation platform with a sampling rate of 250 MSPS is implemented to illustrate the performance of the new architecture. The result shows that the spurious free dynamic range (SFDR) of the new architecture is more than 20 dB higher than the classical one in a high frequency range. The rise time of a step signal of the new architecture is 0.578 ± 0.070 ns faster than the classical one with the same bandwidth (90 MHz).
