Automatic recognition of gestures using computer vision is important for many real-world applications such as sign language recognition and human-robot interaction (HRI). Our goal is a real-time hand gesture-based HRI interface for mobile robots. We use a state-of-the-art big and deep neural network (NN) combining convolution and max-pooling (MPCNN) for(More)
We introduce Convolutional Neural Support Vector Machines (CNSVMs), a combination of two heterogeneous supervised classification techniques, Convolutional Neural Networks (CNNs) and Support Vector Machines (SVMs). CNSVMs are trained using a Stochastic Gradient Descent approach, that provides the computational capability of online incremental learning and is(More)
—Automatic recognition of people is a challenging problem which has received much attention during recent years due to its many applications in different fields. Face recognition is one of those challenging problems and up to date, there is no technique that provides a robust solution to all situations. This paper presents a new technique for human face(More)

Protective relays are used to detect any abnormalities in a power system and isolate the faulty section of the system in the shortest time, in order to minimize disturbances caused by failure in the system to ensure continuous power delivery. Protective relays for overcurrent protection are the most widely used relays in a power system. The implementation(More)
The inverse definite minimum time relay has been used in the power distribution system in order to protect the system from power system faults.[1] These relays will function after a certain time delay when the current going through the relay exceeds a predefined set point. This time delay depends on the ratio of the fault current flowing through the relay(More)
We present a novel approach for the online learning of hand gestures in swarm robotic (multi-robot) systems. We address the problem of online feature learning by proposing Convolutional Max-Pooling (CMP), a simple feed-forward two-layer network derived from the deep hierarchical Max-Pooling Convolutional Neural Network (MPCNN). To learn and classify(More)
