Robust Feature Extraction and Temporal Analysis for Partial Fingerprint Identification
(Virginia Tech, 2012-09-05)
Identification of an individual from discriminating features of the friction ridge surface is one of the oldest and most commonly used biometric techniques. Methods for identification span from tedious, although highly ...
A recognition system for rectangular components based on structural decomposition
(Virginia Tech, 1995-07-15)
Simulation of X-ray imaging systems for luggage inspection
(Virginia Tech, 1995)
This thesis describes XL, an x-ray imaging simulator for luggage inspection. This software system runs on a workstation and models x-ray sources, x-ray detectors and objects between them. A simple graphical interface ...
Real-time parameter adjustment for archival image scanning
(Virginia Tech, 1992-06-03)
Classification of species and color of finished wooden components
(Virginia Tech, 1996-04-05)
<p>This thesis describes the use of computer vision and pattern recognition technology in the design of an automatic system which can distinguish species and color of finished wooden components. The system can identify ...
Digital frequency demodulation for a laser vibrometer
(Virginia Tech, 1994)
Omnidirectional Vision for an Autonomous Surface Vehicle
(Virginia Tech, 2008-12-05)
Due to the wide field of view, omnidirectional cameras have been extensively used in many applications, including surveillance and autonomous navigation. In order to implement a fully autonomous system, one of the essential ...
Situation Awareness: A Network Centric Approach
(Virginia Tech, 2008-09-26)
Situation (al) awareness (SA) is critical to analyze, predict and perform tasks effectively in a dynamic environment. Many studies on SA have ignored network dynamism and its effect on SA, focusing on simple environments. ...
Layer Extraction and Image Compositing using a Moving-aperture Lens
(Virginia Tech, 2005-05-02)
Image layers are two-dimensional planes, each comprised of objects extracted from a two-dimensional (2D) image of a scene. Multiple image layers together make up a given 2D image, similar to the way a stack of transparent ...
Fast generation of Gaussian and Laplacian image pyramids using an FPGA-based custom computing platform
(Virginia Tech, 1994-09-12)
