The problem of detecting rectangular structures in images arises in many applications, from building extraction in aerial images to particle detection in cryo-electron microscopy. This paper proposes a new technique for rectangle detection using a windowed Hough transform. Every pixel of the image is scanned, and a sliding window is used to compute the(More)
This paper presents a new adaptive background model for grayscale video sequences, that includes shadows and highlight detection. In the training period, statistics are computed for each image pixel to obtain the initial background model and an estimate of the image global noise, even in the presence of several moving objects. Each new frame is then(More)
This article presents a survey on crowd analysis using computer vision techniques, covering different aspects such as people tracking, crowd density estimation, event detection, validation, and simulation. It also reports how related the areas of computer vision and computer graphics should be to deal with current challenges in crowd analysis.
This paper proposes a technique for unwanted lane departure detection. Initially, lane boundaries are detected using a combination of the edge distribution function and a modified Hough transform. In the tracking stage, a linear-parabolic lane model is used: in the near vision field, a linear model is used to obtain robust information about lane(More)
In this paper, we propose a new model for lane tracking and curve detection. We use a linear-parabolic model for each lane boundary, and apply constraints to link both lane boundaries based on the expected geometry of the road. The parabolic part of the model, which fits the far field, is then used to analyze the geometry of the road ahead (straight, right(More)
