Morphological Image Processing: Architecture and VLSI design by Petrus Paulus Jonker (auth.)

By Petrus Paulus Jonker (auth.)

Summary according to the stories of prior designs and the end result of contemporary reviews within the comparisons of low-level picture processing architectures, a pipelined process for actual­ time low-image processing has been designed and learned in CMOS know-how. to reduce layout pitfalls, a learn was once played to the main points of the layout options which have been present in embodimentsof the 3 major architectural teams of photo processing; the sq. Processor Arrays, the Linear Processor Arrays and the Pipelines. this is often mirrored in a theoretical version. because the layout relies on bitplane-wise processing of pictures, learn used to be played at the rules ofCellularLogic Processing of 2 dimensional photos. of binary a strategy has been built that's according to the transformation photographs utilizing units of Hit-or-Miss mask. this system looked to be extendable to better dimensional photographs. A theoretical version for the iteration of break-point stipulations in excessive dimensional photos has been constructed, and utilized as much as measurement three.

Content-Based Video Retrieval: A Database Perspective by Milan Petkovic, Willem Jonker

By Milan Petkovic, Willem Jonker

The region of content-based video retrieval is a really sizzling zone either for learn and for advertisement purposes. which will layout powerful video databases for purposes similar to electronic libraries, video creation, and various net functions, there's a nice have to advance powerful ideas for content-based video retrieval. one of many major concerns during this region of analysis is how you can bridge the semantic hole among low-Ievel positive aspects extracted from a video (such as colour, texture, form, movement, and others) and semantics that describe video idea on a better point. during this ebook, Dr. Milan Petkovi6 and Prof. Dr. Willem Jonker have addressed this factor via constructing and describing numerous leading edge strategies to bridge the semantic hole. the most contribution in their examine, that's the middle of the ebook, is the advance of 3 ideas for bridging the semantic hole: (1) a method that makes use of the spatio-temporal extension of the Cobra framework, (2) a method in line with hidden Markov versions, and (3) a method in accordance with Bayesian trust networks. to guage functionality of those suggestions, the authors have performed a few experiments utilizing actual video info. The publication additionally discusses domain names suggestions as opposed to normal resolution of the matter. Petkovi6 and Jonker proposed an answer that permits a method to be utilized in a number of domain names with minimum alterations. in addition they designed and defined a prototype video database administration process, that's according to thoughts they proposed within the book.

By Fathi E. Abd El-Samie

This ebook is dedicated to the problem of photograph super-resolution—obtaining high-resolution photographs from unmarried or a number of low-resolution pictures. even supposing there are lots of algorithms on hand for snapshot interpolation and super-resolution, there’s been a necessity for a booklet that establishes a standard thread among the 2 methods. Filling this want, Image Super-Resolution and Applications offers snapshot interpolation as a construction block within the super-resolution reconstruction process.

Instead of imminent picture interpolation as both a polynomial-based challenge or an inverse challenge, this publication breaks the mould and compares and contrasts the 2 methods. It provides instructions for snapshot super-resolution: super-resolution with a priori details and blind super-resolution reconstruction of pictures. It additionally devotes chapters to the 2 complementary steps used to acquire high-resolution pictures: picture registration and photograph fusion.

  • Details recommendations for colour photo interpolation and interpolation for trend recognition
  • Analyzes picture interpolation as an inverse problem
  • Presents photograph registration methodologies
  • Considers picture fusion and its program in snapshot great resolution
  • Includes simulation experiments in addition to the necessary MATLAB® code

Supplying entire assurance of image-super answer and its purposes, the e-book illustrates purposes for photograph interpolation and super-resolution in clinical and satellite tv for pc snapshot processing. It makes use of MATLAB® courses to give a variety of thoughts, together with polynomial picture interpolation and adaptive polynomial photograph interpolation. MATLAB codes for many of the simulation experiments provided within the publication are integrated within the appendix.
