  • Towards reliable face localization in complex images

    Publication Year: 2004, Page(s):3 - 8
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (856 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Face detection is the first step in many face image processing applications. This paper presents a simple, fast and robust method for reliable detection of faces in real-life images. We introduce a novel technique for distinguishing different skin colors, a capability that most of the other skin color based approaches lack. By distinguishing different shades of skin we are able to accurately detec... View full abstract»

  • Fingerprint based person identification & verification for commercial applications

    Publication Year: 2004, Page(s):9 - 13
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (698 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    This paper presents the development of a simple automated fingerprint identification & verification system. The technique conferred in this paper is based on the extraction of feature vectors from the 2D FFT of the binarized image of a fingerprint using a wedge-ring extraction process. The technique used can accommodate a small degree of shift and rotation (within 15") in the placement of a fi... View full abstract»

    This paper describes the novel approach of face recognition using the combination principal component analysis (PCA) and independent component analysis (ICA). The results produced, are up to 99.3% accurate on the subjects of ORL database. While previously, independent use of either PCA or ICA resulted in lower percentage of accuracy. Also PCA and ICA are considered equivalent. The computational st... View full abstract»

    In this paper, we outline a novel technique for robust indexing and retrieval of video object trajectories. Our approach is based on using spatiotemporal curvature to represent the trajectories. Dominant inflection points from the curvature are extracted at multiple levels of scale simultaneously revealing structure at varying levels of details. These inflection points, the maxima of curvature sca... View full abstract»

  • Empowering spatial domain filters of digital image processing with IFE tool

    Publication Year: 2004, Page(s):36 - 40
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (668 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Noise reduction and image enhancement are of the most important operations in digital image processing. A software named IFE tool has been designed and developed using Visual C++ platform for the same purpose. The software uses some of the spatial domain filters to reduce noise from the images empowered with the VC language. The results are much finer than other commercially available softwares. I...

    Feature extraction is one of the most vital steps involved in image description. Every feature extraction technique has its own merits and demerits. For a particular application a carefully worked fusion of features, extracted using different techniques, can enhance their image description capabilities. Optimized moment features, obtained from author's previous work, have shown promising results i... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (945 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    The paper depicts an innovative and efficient methodology for the effective segmentation of lungs based on the true composition of the thoracic CT image. The method comprises of three phases: image enhancement of lung CT, elliptical thorax extraction and lungs segmentation. The proposed technique covers up the deficiencies present in classical segmentation techniques, where any abnormality present... View full abstract»

    This paper proposes an algorithm for the sub pixel motion compensation of H.264 that could be useful in the implementation of efficient and computationally less intensive motion compensation scheme especially for DSP processors. Our method divides the motion compensation scheme defined in the H.264 standard in to three separate steps and tackles each one individually. Furthermore, due to the great... View full abstract»

    Binarization of document images is mostly used as a preprocessing step in document image analysis. Proper binarization is very important so as to save all or maximum subcomponents such as text, background and picture. The work of Niblack is significant and has most acceptable results out of many techniques of thresholding. In this paper, we have presented a modified version of Niblack's method of ...

    This paper investigates computer aided diagnosis (CAD) techniques that allow detection of lung cancer through analysis of chest computed tomography (CT) images. In CAD two main problems have to be solved successfully in order to make the clinical acceptance of CAD systems a reality. One is the segmentation of the organ of interest, which in case of the lungs is already a challenge. Second is nodul... View full abstract»

    This paper describes a novel technique for optical character recognition of handwritten text using the basic geometrical strokes contained in the alphabets of a language. It is observed that all the characters of a language can be represented as a set of connected basic geometrical strokes; thus if we break a ligature, even if the ligature contains more than one character, as in the case of cursiv...
