This paper proposes an algorithm for solving subsets of typical (canonical) jigsaw puzzles. This algorithm combines shape and image matching with a cyclic ''growth'' process that tries to place pieces in their correct positions. First, the jigsaw pieces are extracted from the input image. Then, the corner points of the jigsaw pieces are detected. Next,(More)
This paper presents a novel method for detecting multiple moving targets in real-time from infrared (IR) image sequences collected by an airborne IR camera. This novel method is based on dynamic Gabor filter and dynamic Gaussian detector. First, the ego-motion induced by the airborne platform is modeled by parametric affine transformation based on feature(More)
This paper describes an algorithm for multiple moving targets detection, tracking and recognition from a moving observer. When the camera is placed on a moving observer, the whole background of the scene appears to be moving and the actual motion of the targets must be distinguished from the background motion. To do this, an affine motion model between(More)
Image registration has wide applications in remote sensing, medicine, cartography, and computer vision. This paper describes a method for aerial image registration, which is based on joint feature-spatial spaces, curve matching, and template matching. The entire algorithm consists of (i) segmentation and region representation, (ii) region matching based on(More)
This paper describes the fusion of the airborne optical image and IR (infrared) image generated from a moving platform, and the target detection from the fused images. The proposed algorithm first detects the object from optical image and IR image, respectively. Then it performs the object mapping to determine parameters for image fusion. And then it fuses(More)
