    • Pseudo Stereovision System (PSVS): A Monocular Mirror-based Stereovision System 

      Pachidis, Theodore P. (INTECH Open Access Publisher, 2007)
      A system for stereovision based on mirrors and a beam-splitter, was presented. PSVS, as it is called, is a low cost system with well-located features (accuracy, stability, compact construction). Equations and relations, ...
    • Non-rigid Stereo-motion

      The authors would like to thank the Royal Society European Science Exchange Programme, EPSRC Grant GR/S61539/01 and the Spanish Ministry of Science project TIC2002-00591 for financial support. Enrique Mu?oz, Jose Miguel ...
    • Projective Rectification with Minimal Geometric Distortion 

      Wu, Hsien-Huang P.; Chen, Chih-Cheng (INTECH Open Access Publisher, 2007)
      This chapter presented a new way of parameterizing the homography, which leads to a new approach of projective rectification for stereo images. Compared with the previous works, the novelty of this new algorithm is that ...
    • Image Processing Techniques for Unsupervised Pattern Classification 

      Botte-Lecocq, C.; Hammouche, K.; Moussa, A. (INTECH Open Access Publisher, 2007)
      All the clustering methods presented in this chapter tend to generalize bi-dimensional procedures initially developed for image processing purpose. Among them, thresholding, edge detection, probabilistic relaxation, ...
    • A Sensors System for Indoor Localisation of a Moving Target Based on Infrared Pattern Recognition 

      Petrellis, Nikos; Konofaos, Nikos; Alexiou, George (INTECH Open Access Publisher, 2007)
      A novel method for the indoor localisation of a target was presented in this chapter. This method is based on measuring the number of the digital infrared patterns received by the target in a specific time interval (success ...
    • Articulated Hand Tracking by ICA-based Hand Model and Multiple Cameras 

      Gang Xu, Makoto Kato; Chen, Yen-Wei (INTECH Open Access Publisher, 2007)
      In this chapter, we proposed three new approaches, the ICA-based hand model, articulated hand motion tracking by multiple cameras, and Particle filtering with prediction. The ICA-based hand model is the ICA-based representation ...
    • Biologically Motivated Vergence Control System Based on Stereo Saliency Map Model 

      Sang-Woo, Bana; Minho, Lee (INTECH Open Access Publisher, 2007)
      We proposed a new biologically motivated vergence control method of an active stereo vision system that mimics human-like stereo visual selective attention. We used a trainable selective attention model that can decide an ...
    • A Learning Approach for Adaptive Image Segmentation 

      Martin, Vincent; Thonnat, Monique (INTECH Open Access Publisher, 2007)
      In this chapter, we have proposed a learning approach for three major issues of image segmentation: context adaptation, algorithm selection and parameter tuning according to the image content and the application need. This ...
    • Continuous Machine Learning in Computer Vision - Tracking with Adaptive Class Models 

      Stolkin, Rustam (INTECH Open Access Publisher, 2007)
      This chapter has explored a number of techniques in vision based tracking, with the common theme of continuous relearning of models of the background and the tracked
    • A Novel Omnidirectional Stereo Vision System with a Single Camera 

      Yi, Sooyeong; Ahuja, Narendra (INTECH Open Access Publisher, 2007)
      Wide field of view is the most attractive feature of the omnidirectional vision. There exist two approaches to omnidirectional stereo imaging with a single camera. They use: (1) a double lobed mirror (Fiala & Basu, ...

    • Development of Inventions and Creative Ideas. Chapter 8 

      Rines, Robert H. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)
      Since there is a decided legal, as well as technical, side to the problems of patents and of protecting proprietary rights, a pin-pointing of difficulties in our current system of judiciary review is necessary in the ...
    • Development of Inventions and Creative Ideas. Chapter 7 

      Rines, Robert H. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)
      The possible effect upon our system of current planning for a common European patent is discussed in this chapter, with several of the author’s views for modernizing and improving the American patent system and its administration.
    • Development of Inventions and Creative Ideas. Chapter 6 

      Rines, Robert H. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)
      Recent proposals for improving the patent system are discussed, including conflicting philosophies in Congress and in the courts.
    • Development of Inventions and Creative Ideas. Chapter 9 

      Rines, Robert H. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)
      While this book in some portions has covered a fairly large canvas, it has specifically dealt with the need to revamp the patent laws, or at least return their practice to the original intent of the founding fathers of the ...
