Detecting, identifying, and recognizing salient regions or feature points in images is a very important and fundamental problem to the computer vision and robotics community. Tasks like landmark detection and visual odometry, but also object recognition benefit from stable and repeatable salient features that are invariant to a variety of effects like(More)
The demand for 'authentic' cultural and nature-based tourism experiences affects all cultures, including the tiny Himalayan kingdom of Bhutan. Bhutan's dilemma is represented in its desire to share in global economic development while still retaining its traditional cultural identity.

The electromagnetic calorimeter at the BABAR detector, part of the asymmetric B Factory at SLAC, measures photons in the energy range from 20 MeV to 8 GeV with high resolution. The current status of the calorimeter, now in its seventh year of operation, is being presented, as well as details on improvements made to the analysis code during the last years.(More)
In this paper, we document the overhead in terms of runtime, firmware size, communication and energy consumption for Elliptic Curve Cryptography (ECC) signatures of modern ARM-based constrained devices. The experiments we have undertaken show that the cryptographic capabilities of the investigated Zolertia Re-Mote based on a TI's CC2538 chipset running(More)
