• Analysis of flame images in gas-fired furnaces 

    Cokrojoyo, Handi, 1976- (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2007)
    A promising architecture is proposed in this research work for evaluating gasfired furnace flame combustion quality. The quality assessment is based on information on its fuel and oxidizer flow rate level which are the ...
  • Calculating the 3D-Pose of Rigid-Objects Using Active Appearance Models 

    Mittrapiyanuruk, Pradit; DeSouza, Guilherme; Kak, Avinash C. (IEEE, 2004-05)
    This paper presents two different algorithms for object tracking and pose estimation. Both methods are based on an appearance model technique called Active Appearance Model (AAM). The key idea of the first method is to ...
  • Feature Extraction in Images 

    Harlow, Charles A.; Otto, Jacqueline L.; Hall, David L.; Lodwick, Gwilym S. (Gwilym Savage), 1917- (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 1971-10)
    The problem considered is the extraction of features from a complicated set of images. In this approach the basic concepts used in the feature extraction process are: 1)an algorithm that enumerates regions; 2)a search for ...
  • GPU-Based Simulation of Cellular Neural Networks for Image Processing 

    Dolan, Ryanne; DeSouza, Guilherme (IEEE, 2009-06)
    The inherent massive parallelism of cellular neural networks makes them an ideal computational platform for kernelbased algorithms and image processing. General-purpose GPUs provide similar massive parallelism, but it can ...
  • Homography-Based Ground Plane Detection for Mobile Robot Navigation Using a Modified EM Algorithm 

    Conrad, Daniel, 1986-; DeSouza, Guilherme (IEEE, 2010-05)
    In this paper, a homography-based approach for determining the ground plane using image pairs is presented. Our approach is unique in that it uses a Modified Expectation Maximization algorithm to cluster pixels on images ...
  • Land cover classification from satellite imagery, and its applications in cellular network planning 

    Huang, Heng, 1977- (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2005)
    To further increase the classification accuracies, radar image processing techniques were investigated to preprocess the Radarsat data before classification. Eight processing techniques were applied to Radarsat data at ...
  • Planar detection using modified expectation maximization 

    Conrad, Daniel, 1986- (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2011)
    In this work the task of planar detection in an image pair is cast as an incomplete data problem where the parameters to be estimated are the ones that define the homographies induced by the planar regions in the scene. ...
  • Scene matching between a quantitative map and a qualitative hand drawn sketch 

    Parekh, Gaurav (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2007)
    The goal of this work is to perform scene matching between a sketched map and the scene depicted by the sketch, e.g., as represented by a precise physical map or an occupancy grid map (OGM) built by a robot. In this thesis, ...
