In this paper, a high-performance face recognition terminal for access control systems is described. The terminal is specially designed to acquire stable face patterns for reliable recognition. To determine design of an image input device, we evaluate similarity values and their changes for three types of lighting apparatuses. Our basic experiment indicates(More)
In this paper. we propose a method for detecting a human being using silhouette projection pattern matching, and present experimental results of its application in video surveillance systems. There are some studies on detecting intruders in video images by exuacting changing regions which follow moving targets. However, detection e m caused by small(More)
This paper proposes a new method for automatic fire detection in cities using image processing techniques. Images are obtained successively at regular intervals from monochrome TV cameras which are suitably fixed on roofs of tall buildings. Fire detection is camed out by identifying smoke in the daytime and fire flames at night. The major feature of the(More)
image memory access, such as an access to a region This paper describes a high speed raster-to-vector conversion technique which is applicable to many fields in drawing processing. The major feature of the proposed technique is that raster-to-vector conversion can be realized by one simple raster scanning process to an input image and by processings(More)
