    First Sight, a vision system in labeling the outline of a moving human body, is proposed in this paper. The emphasis of First Sight is on the analysis of motion information gathered solely from the outline of a moving human object. Two main processes are implemented in First Sight. The first process uses a novel technique to extract the outline of a moving human body from an image sequence. The se... View full abstract»

  • Multiple subclass pattern recognition: A maximin correlation approach

    This paper addresses a correlation based nearest neighbor pattern recognition problem where each class is given as a collection of subclass templates. The recognition is performed in two stages. In the first stage the class is determined. Templates for this stage are created using the subclass templates. Assignment into subclasses occurs in the second stage. This two stage approach may be used to ... View full abstract»

  • Recovering the position and orientation of free-form objects from image contours using 3D distance maps

    The accurate matching of 3D anatomical surfaces with sensory data such as 2D X-ray projections is a basic problem in computer and robot assisted surgery, In model-based vision, this problem can be formulated as the estimation of the spatial pose (position and orientation) of a 3D smooth object from 2D video images. The authors present a new method for determining the rigid body transformation that... View full abstract»

  • Layout recognition of multi-kinds of table-form documents

    Publication Year: 1995, Page(s):432 - 445

    Many approaches have reported that knowledge-based layout recognition methods are very successful in classifying the meaningful data from document images automatically. However, these approaches are applicable to only the same kind of documents because they are based on the paradigm that specifies the structure definition information in advance so as to be able to analyze a particular class of doc...

  • Shape from texture using local spectral moments

    Publication Year: 1995, Page(s):333 - 343

    Presents a non-feature-based solution to the problem of computing the shape of curved surfaces from texture information. First, the use of local spatial-frequency spectra and their moments to describe texture is discussed and motivated. A new, more accurate method for measuring the local spatial-frequency moments of an image texture using Gabor elementary functions and their derivatives is present... View full abstract»

    Methods for approximately computing the marginal probability mass functions and means of a Markov random field (MRF) by approximating the lattice by a tree are described. Applied to the a posteriori MRF these methods solve Bayesian spatial pattern classification and image restoration problems. The methods are described, several theoretical results concerning fixed-point problems are proven, and fo... View full abstract»

  • A general surface approach to the integration of a set of range views

    Publication Year: 1995, Page(s):344 - 358
    Cited by:  Papers (129)  |  Patents (8)

    This paper presents a new and general solution to the problem of range view integration. The integration problem consists in computing a connected surface model from a set of registered range images acquired from different viewpoints. The proposed method does not impose constraints on the topology of the observed surfaces, the position of the viewpoints, or the number of views that can be merged. ... View full abstract»

  • Multivariate classification through adaptive Delaunay-based C° spline approximation

    This paper introduces a new method for adaptively building a multivariate C° spline approximation from scattered samples of an unknown function. The central feature of the method is a means for adaptively tesselating an approximation space to form a multidimensional mesh over which the spline fitting then occurs. The mesh used is a Delaunay tesselation of the approximation space whose vertices... View full abstract»

  • Organizing large structural modelbases

    Presents a hierarchically structured approach to organizing large structural modelbases using an information theoretic criterion. Objects (patterns) are modeled in the form of random parametric structural descriptions (RPSDs), an extension of the parametric structural description graph-theoretic formalism. Objects in scenes are modeled as parametric structural descriptions (PSDs). The organization... View full abstract»
