• Action recognition via sequence embedding 

    Gong, Wei (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2011)
    A comb structural exemplar embedding based approach is introduced for action recognition. We propose a new framework to represent an action as a weak classifier pool. During training, firstly, construct a set of static ...
  • Data display for a signal scavenging personnel detection system 

    Devarakonda, Krishna Kishor (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2011)
    We developed a display to remotely monitor activity in a room using passive elements like aluminum foils, and a mechanism which will inform the loved ones in case of an emergency. The system consists of amplifiers to ...
  • An evolutionary framework for matching geospatial object configurations 

    Buck, Andrew R. (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2012)
    This thesis presents a framework for modeling and comparing the spatial configuration of sets containing two-dimensional geospatial objects. This situation can arise in the conflation of a hand or machine drafted map to a ...
  • Fall detection system using low cost computing and online communication 

    Gadre, Kaustubh Raghunath (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2012)
    Falls are prevalent among elderly and sometime may result in fatal injuries, which impacts their ability of independent living. Thus, a reliable as well as cost effective fall detection system is required. We have developed ...
  • Investigation of the relative amplitude method in detecting early illness 

    Echebiri, Chinonye (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2013)
    In this study, we examine the relative amplitude - a circadian rhythm measure, as a potential feature for early illness detection. We used data collected from sensor networks to analyze the daily activity level and sleep ...
  • PCI bus connects MizzouRISC to PC 

    Zhu, Nan (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2011)
    This paper covers the design of a PCI transmission controller to make a 32-bit microprocessor MizzouRISC be a co-processor for a PC. The co-processor communicates with the PC through the PCI bus, and works as a target ...
  • People re-identification in a camera network 

    Shaaya, Ghadeer (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2012)
    In this research, we present an appearance based method for people re-identification. It consists in the extraction of two types of features related to human appearance, color histograms and SIFT features. Images are ...
  • People re-identification over non-overlapping camera views 

    Liu, Yang (Engineer) (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2013)
    Person re-identification is a computer vision task of recognizing an individual from similar background across non-overlapping camera views. In this research, we present an appearance-based method for people re-identification. ...
  • Sensor network for early illness detection in the elderly 

    Guevara, Rainer Dane A. (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2012)
    The independent living facilities at TigerPlace allow the elderly to age in place in a homely setting that fosters independence, autonomy, and privacy while providing some level of aid like shared meals, housekeeping, and ...
  • Type-1 and type-2 fuzzy systems for detecting visitors in an uncertain environment 

    Reed, Kevin W. (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2009)
    In this work, I have developed an algorithm to detect the presence of visitors in a noninvasive manner. This algorithm is designed as part of an in home monitoring system. The data from the algorithm will be used as a way ...
  • Unobtrusive, in-home gait measurement, fall risk assessment, and fall detection using depth imagery 

    Stone, Erik E. (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2013)
    Research has shown the importance of measuring a person's gait. However, current methods for measuring gait, such as observation by a clinician with a stop watch or evaluation in a physical performance lab, often lead to ...
  • Walk detection using pulse-Doppler radar 

    Phillips, Calvin E., II (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2012)
    Seniors increasingly live more independent lifestyles. This can come with certain safety hazards including deteriorating health, and major injuries from falling. A factor that has been researched and observed to have a ...
