Understanding video events, i.e., the translation of low-level content in video sequences into high-level semantic concepts, is a research topic that has received much interest in recent years. Important applications of this paper include smart surveillance systems, semantic video database indexing, and interactive systems. This technology can be applied to several video domains including airport ... View full abstract»

Palmprint has proved to be one of the most unique and stable biometric characteristics. Almost all the current palmprint recognition techniques capture the 2-D image of the palm surface and use it for feature extraction and matching. Although 2-D palmprint recognition can achieve high accuracy, the 2-D palmprint images can be counterfeited easily and much 3-D depth information is lost in the imagi... View full abstract»

In this paper, a hardware implementation of a fuzzy modified ant colony processor that is suitable for image retrieval is presented for the first time. The proposed method utilizes three different descriptors in a two stage fuzzy ant algorithm where the query image represents the nest and the database images represent the food. From the hardware point of view, only a small number of algorithms for... View full abstract»

In this paper, the general problem of dynamic assignment of sensors to local fusion centers (LFCs) in a distributed tracking framework is considered. With technological advances, a large number of sensors can be deployed for multitarget tracking purposes. However, due to physical limitations such as frequency, power, bandwidth, and fusion center capacity, only a limited number of them can be used ... View full abstract»

Although a few researchers have started to realize the importance of a flexible spine in generating more natural-looking behaviors for humanoid robots, there has been no work on trying to make a full-body humanoid robot (that has a flexible spine) to maintain balance. The main reason for this is that it is very costly and difficult to develop and control this kind of robot. This paper serves two p... View full abstract»

Today's home and local-area network environments consist of various types of personal equipments, network devices, and corresponding services. Since such prevalent home network environments frequently deal with private and sensitive information, it is crucial to legitimately provide access control for protecting such emerging environments. As a result, the open services gateway initiative (OSGi) a... View full abstract»

Agent-based systems have been the object of intense research over the past decade. While great theoretical progress has been made, the software frameworks for creating agent-based systems offer considerable variability in their capabilities and functionality. This paper introduces a reference model for agent-based systems. The purpose of a reference model is to provide a common conceptual basis fo... View full abstract»
