    Active models or snakes are mainly used for detection of certain characteristics defined by the user using prior knowledge. In this paper an analysis of the main characteristics of three parametric active models (Kass, Cohen and Xu) is done. A comparative table is shown to help the user to define which could be the best model according to the application. Finally an experimental design is used to ... View full abstract»

    This paper presents a novel implementation of active contour model for fast extraction in image interpretation called fast active contours for sampling (FACS). The described process is based on the use of a sampling window in the phase of minimization of the energy. The method can be combined with most of the other active contour approaches presented, thanks to the independence between the computa... View full abstract»

  • An Improved Method for Segmentation of Fingerprint Images

    Publication Year: 2006, Page(s):20 - 23
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (408 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    In this work, an improved method for the pixel-wise segmentation technique is presented. Three features are extracted from each pixel and a linear classifier associates the pixel with the background or the foreground. Since this technique requires a trade-off between the accuracy of the classification and the computational effort, we propose a modified editing-condensing technique to select a redu...

  • A Discrete Reaction-Diffusion Operator for Moving Curves and Edge Detection

    Publication Year: 2006, Page(s):24 - 29
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (597 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    This paper introduces a discrete reaction-diffusion operator for iterative curve moving. The operator is a linear combination of an average operator and a maximum-minimum operator. It approximates curvature motion and affine motion. Furthermore, it features properties of level set active contours, namely topological changes of the curve are handled automatically and it does not require the initial... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (253 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Shape-of-object representation has always been an important topic in image processing and pattern recognition. This work deals with representation of shape of objects, and approaches to recognize objects. Several invariant techniques are widely used to represent an object because they preserve information and allow considerable data reduction. In this paper, a new approach based on a code represen...

    With the increase of the use of Internet and wireless mobile devices, the digital information needs to be send and received efficiently in low bit rates in order to exploit the bandwidth. At low bit rates it is almost impossible to generate errors or artifacts in images. In order to solve that problem, researchers are trying to design and build lossy image coders which can preserve important featu... View full abstract»

    The novel algorithm for estimation and prediction of objects motion in dynamic scene is presented in this paper. The proposed hybrid algorithm is based on computing the differences between consecutive frames of video stream by processing of objects time-varying edges. The prediction of objects motion and their possible collisions are computed by extrapolation taking into account proposed motion st... View full abstract»

    Decreased milk production and reduced milk quality is associated with mastitis (disease of dairy cattle) and adulteration with agents such as the water. The dairy industry has been damaged, thus a variety of diagnostic tests are frequently used to evaluate milk quality on dairy farms. Electrical conductivity (EC) of milk has been introduced as an indicator trait for mastitis and as a method to mea... View full abstract»

    During the last two decade, numerous handwriting character recognition systems have been proposed. Many of them presented their limitation when the handwriting character is cursive type and it has some deformation. However this type of cursive character is easily recognized by the human being. In this paper we research its human ability and apply it to the dynamic handwriting character recognition... View full abstract»

    In this work, the characteristics of methane gas detection have been simulated using extracted data of a PFTIR system. Results of 14 ppm of gas methane concentration produced by a leakage to distances of 1000 mts were obtained. Our model of detection in passive way proposes as new implementation the use of natural heat of the surface ground as infrared radiation source in the interval 20-50degC. T... View full abstract»

  • A Performance Comparison of TCP Protocols over Mobile Ad Hoc Wireless Networks

    The performance of wireless ad hoc networks is impacted significantly by the way TCP reacts to lost packets. TCP was designed specifically for wired, reliable networks; thus, any packet loss is attributed to congestion in the network. This assumption does not hold in wireless networks as most packet loss is due to link failure. In our research we analyzed several implementations of TCP, including ... View full abstract»
