In this paper, a new algorithm for vehicle license plate identification is proposed, on the basis of a novel adaptive image segmentation technique (sliding concentric windows) and connected component analysis in conjunction with a character recognition neural network. The algorithm was tested with 1334 natural-scene gray-level vehicle images of different(More)
License plate recognition (LPR) algorithms in images or videos are generally composed of the following three processing steps: 1) extraction of a license plate region; 2) segmentation of the plate characters; and 3) recognition of each character. This task is quite challenging due to the diversity of plate formats and the nonuniform outdoor illumination(More)
Speaker emotion recognition is achieved through processing methods that include isolation of the speech signal and extraction of selected features for the final classification. In terms of acoustics, speech processing techniques offer extremely valuable paralinguistic information derived mainly from prosodic and spectral features. In some cases, the process(More)
In this paper, a new algorithm for vehicle logo recognition on the basis of an enhanced scale-invariant feature transform (SIFT)-based feature-matching scheme is proposed. This algorithm is assessed on a set of 1200 logo images that belong to ten distinctive vehicle manufacturers. A series of experiments are conducted, splitting the 1200 images to a(More)
This paper deals with a novel vehicle manufacturer and model recognition scheme, which is enhanced by color recognition for more robust results. A probabilistic neural network is assessed as a classifier and it is demonstrated that relatively simple image processing measurements can be used to obtain high performance vehicle authentication. The proposed(More)
In this paper, we present a comparative analysisof three classifiers for speech signal emotion recognition.Recognition was performed on emotional Berlin Database.This work focuses on speaker and utterance (phrase)dependent and independent framework. One hundred thirtythree (133) sound/speech features were extracted from Pitch,Mel Frequency Cepstral(More)
This paper presents an emotion recognition framework based on sound processing could significantly improve human computer interaction. One hundred thirty three (133) speech features obtained from sound processing of acting speech were tested in order to create a feature set sufficient to discriminate between seven emotions. Following statistical analysis in(More)
