    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (577 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    This paper presents a novel liveness detection method that exploits the acquisition workflow for iris biometrics on smartphones using a hybrid visible (RGB)/near infra-red (NIR) sensor. These devices are able to capture both RGB and NIR images of the eye and iris region in synchronization. This multi-spectral information is mapped into a discrete feature space. An intermediate classifier which use... View full abstract»

  • Color quantization and optimization of luminance for digital mirror device–based projector

    Publication Year: 2016, Page(s):103 - 110
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1692 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Projectors using digital mirror devices (DMDs) are widely used in consumer electronics. DMDs can switch between the ON and OFF states. Light is reflected by the DMDs, and a binary image is projected onto a screen. Full-color images can be represented by switching 24-binary images rapidly. To increase the frame rate, it is necessary to speed up the DMD switching. However, this is difficult because ... View full abstract»

    This paper proposes a smartphone application to be used in open system platforms in combination with a projector to produce a black mask which, when used together, both cover and track the speaker's face to reduce the strong light from the projector shining toward the speaker's eyes. This design uses this background subtraction technique to first eliminate the background of the captured image and ... View full abstract»

    By collecting data from sensor devices, wireless sensor networks enable consumer product management in indoor environments. However, most off-the-shelf sensor devices are battery-powered and hence hampered by the limitation of battery life. In this context, wireless rechargeable sensor networks (WRSNs) which adopt wireless power transfer (WPT) technique - leveraging electromagnetic waves for senso... View full abstract»

    The current paper presents an outdoor monitoring system for elderly people, which can transmit information on physiological signals and falling events to a healthcare center at any time and from any place. To detect simultaneously the occurrence of any falling event, as well as the relative electrocardiogram (ECG) signal of the user, a multi-thread method is proposed with the objective of enhancin...

  • FSLRU: a page cache algorithm for mobile devices with hybrid memory architecture

    Publication Year: 2016, Page(s):136 - 143
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1360 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Even though page cache layer of operating system enhances the performance of mobile devices by reducing the number of write requests issued to the underlying mobile storage, the mobile devices still suffer from the excessive write requests. This is because mobile applications frequently trigger synchronous writes with fsync() system call to guarantee the reliability of each application. Unfortunat... View full abstract»

    Optical pickup unit (OPU) is a data read/write head in optical disc drives, and precision orientation angle adjustment of a diffraction grating (GT) is an important process in OPU manufacturing for aligning laser beam spots on the same data track of an optical disc. This paper proposes a new method for detecting alignment of laser beam spots for utilization in automation of the GT adjustment proce... View full abstract»

    The human category is among the most commonly captured and therefore important subject in digital cameras. As a result, human segmentation also plays an important role in the camera system. This paper presents a framework of non-parametric learning that achieves human segmentation using support vector machine (SVM). In the training stage, the training human windows are warped to a normalized size ... View full abstract»

  • An edge-guided image interpolation method using Taylor series approximation

    Publication Year: 2016, Page(s):159 - 165
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (744 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    In this paper, a novel real-time edge-guided interpolation method is presented to produce the high resolution image without any disturbing artifacts such as blurring, jagging, and overshooting. The proposed method computes the first- and second-order derivatives of an input image to measure the geometry of edges in the image. Based on these measures, the value of a pixel to be interpolated is esti... View full abstract»

  • A computation and energy reduction technique for HEVC Discrete Cosine Transform

    Publication Year: 2016, Page(s):166 - 174
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1562 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    In this paper, a novel computation and energy reduction technique for High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC) Discrete Cosine Transform (DCT) for all Transform Unit (TU) sizes is proposed. The proposed technique reduces the computational complexity of HEVC DCT significantly at the expense of slight decrease in PSNR and slight increase in bit rate by only calculating several pre-determined low frequenc...

    As TV viewers inherently tend to avoid contents they might dislike, they do not provide equal amounts of positive and negative feedback on their viewing preferences. At the same time, mobile devices are becoming target platforms for multimedia content delivery. Personalized program guides need to cope with these challenges. They must not only properly recognize the undesired content, despite the l... View full abstract»

    Software-defined Home Networks (SDHN) is a key development trend of smart home which is proposed to realize multi-home visual sharing. With the improved openness and programming ability, SDHN faces increased network threat than traditional home networks. Especially, because of the diversity and heterogeneity of smart home products, multi-stage attack is more convenient to be performed in SDHN. To ... View full abstract»
