    THIS Special Issue is an outgrowth of the IEEE Computer X Society Workshop on Computer Analysis of Time-Varying Imagery held in Philadelphia, PA, April 5–6, 1979. The Workshop was sponsored by the Technical Committee on Machine Intelligence and Pattern Analysis. Obviously, the Workshop played a significant role in bringing about this Special Issue and a major fraction of the papers included... View full abstract»

    Introduces a new primitive, the half-chunk, for encoding boundary, region, and surface information in graph form. General graph matching is discussed and a specific graph matching system based on half-chunk graphs is presented. Following matching, bindings are interpreted as object component motion or depth. The half-chunk graph allows scale and coordinate system independent object models to be re... View full abstract»

    Presents a method for deriving depth information from a moving image where the camera is moving through a real world scene. The method refines a simple surface model based on error measures that are derived by interimage comparisons of point values. View full abstract»

    As a part of a cine-film understanding system, the paper presents a dynamic scene analyzer which separates moving objects from the background and analyzes their motion patterns in dynamic line images such as cartoon films. Finding correspondence of regions and their segments in a sequence of input frames by a new flexible template matching method, the analyzer tracks moving regions and their segme...

  • Model-based image analysis of human motion using constraint propagation

    Cited by:  Papers (130)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (11248 KB)

    A system capable of analyzing image sequences of human motion is described. The system is structured as a feedback loop between high and low levels: predictions are made at the semantic level and verifications are sought at the image level. The domain of human motion lends itself to a model-driven analysis, and the system includes a detailed model of the human body. All information extracted from ... View full abstract»

    As an example of noisy dynamic image processing, the paper presents a plan-guided analysis system of cineangiograms, X-ray motion pictures of a beating heart in which X-ray opaque dye is injected through a catheter. A task of the system is the detection of both the internal and external surfaces of the left ventricular chamber and the measurement of the spatial and temporal change in thickness of ...

  • Combining motion and contrast for segmentation

    A method is presented for partitioning a scene into regions corresponding to surfaces with distinct velocities. Both motion and contrast information are incorporated into the segmentation process. Velocity estimates for each point in a scene are obtained using a local nonmatching technique not dependent on any prior boundary determination. The actual segmentation is accomplished using a region mer... View full abstract»

  • Exploiting image formation knowledge for motion analysis

    Publication Year: 1980, Page(s):550 - 554

    Deals with scene sequences showing objects in motion. Gray values of an object surface element, traced through the sequence, will exhibit systematic variations due to changing lighting and viewing conditions. Much of today's understanding of the underlying image formation process is due to Horn, who showed in particular that given sufficient knowledge about imaging conditions, gray values may be u...

  • Determining the movement of objects from a sequence of images

    Discusses the problem of determining the three-dimensional model and movement of an object from a sequence of two-dimensional images. A solution to this problem depends on solving a system of nonlinear equations using a modified least-squared error method. Two views of six points or three views of four points are needed to provide an overdetermined set of equations when the images are noisy. It is... View full abstract»

  • A framework for visual motion understanding

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (2862 KB)

    A framework for the abstraction of motion concepts from sequences of images by computer is presented. The framework includes: 1) representation of knowledge for motion concepts that is based on semantic networks; and 2) associated algorithms for recognizing these motion concepts. These algorithms implement a form of feedback by allowing competition and cooperation among local hypotheses. They also... View full abstract»

  • Towards a system for the interpretation of moving light displays

    Lights is a system for the interpretation of simple moving light displays (MLD) of jointed objects against a stationary background. The displays studied differ from those examined by previous researchers in that 1) objects are represented by a relatively small number of points, 2) objects are not rigid, and 3) the viewing geometry is such that highly varying degrees of perspective distortion occur...

    The reconstruction of a 3-D moving object from its images is discussed. Inequalities describing the relation between the required number of points observed on the object and the number of frames are given, and the scale and orientational invariance of the procedure are discussed.

    Recent improvements in Fourier descriptor (FD) shape analysis enable rapid identification of three-dimensional objects using FD feature vectors derived from their boundaries. In three-dimensional shape analysis, it is essential to preserve all information to achieve good performance. In the real-time situation it is, of course, equally important to use a computationally efficient method. The metho... View full abstract»
