• Activity segmentation with special emphasis on sit-to-stand analysis 

    Banerjee, Tanvi (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2010)
    In this study, we present algorithms to segment the activities of sitting and standing, and identify the regions of sit-to-stand transitions in a given image sequence. As a means of fall risk assessment, we propose methods ...
  • Automated video processing and scene understanding for intelligent video surveillance 

    Chung, Yu-Chia, 1979- (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2010)
    Recent advances in key technologies have enabled the deployment of surveillance video cameras on various platforms. There is an urgent need to develop advanced computational methods and tools for automated video processing ...
  • Non-destructive evaluation of wood utility poles using computed axial tomography imaging 

    Thomas, Howard David (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2006)
    Of the more than 130 million wooden utility poles in service, there are approximately 2 million that are replaced annually. A quick, yet accurate non-destructive method of evaluation of the in-service poles could provide ...
  • Propagation of polarized light in skeletal muscle 

    Li, Xin (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2009)
    Skeletal muscle is a very important tissue in animals and humans. Optical polarization imaging is a non-invasive method to study biological tissues and provides unique polarization contrast. An imaging system was developed ...
  • Selected techniques for vehicle tracking and assessment in wide area motion imagery 

    Ganguli, Koyeli, 1980- (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2010)
    Tracking of vehicles in wide area motion imagery (WAMI) is very important for civilian and military surveillance. Tracking in a dataset that is characterized by very large format video with an extremely wide field -of-view ...
  • Thermal image analysis using calibrated video imaging 

    Li, Dong, 1972- (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2006)
    This research work introduces new techniques for temperature measurement that utilizes visual spectrum of light. A periscope with a CCD camera is used to capture the image from a high temperature gas fired furnace and ...
