We introduce the Hierarchical Partitioned Particle Filter (HPPF) designed specifically for articulated human tracking. The HPPF is motivated by the hierarchical dependency between the human body parameters and the partial independence between certain of those parameters. The tracking is model based and follows the analysis by synthesis principle. The(More)
We describe a scanning time-of-flight system which uses the time-correlated single-photon counting technique to produce three-dimensional depth images of distant, noncooperative surfaces when these targets are illuminated by a kHz to MHz repetition rate pulsed laser source. The data for the scene are acquired using a scanning optical system and an(More)
Time-Correlated Single Photon Counting and Burst Illumination Laser data can be used for range profiling and target classification. In general, the problem is to analyse the response from a histogram of either photon counts or integrated intensities to assess the number, positions and amplitudes of the reflected returns from object surfaces. The goal of our(More)
Theories of object recognition that are based purely on part decomposition do not take into account the role of textural, shading, and color information, nor do they differentiate between stylistic factors in the preparation of line-drawn pictorial stimuli. To investigate these factors, naming and verification experiments were performed using line drawings,(More)
