Due to the high rise in luminous efficiency that HB-LEDs have experienced in the last recent years, many new applications have been researched. In this paper, a streetlight LED application will be covered, using the Integrated Buck-Flyback Converter developed in previous works, which performs power factor correction (PFC) from a universal ac source, as well(More)
—This paper presents an application for counting people through a single fixed camera. This system performs the count distinction between input and output of people moving through the supervised area. The counter requires two steps: detection and tracking. The detection is based on finding people's heads through preprocessed image correlation with several(More)
—This paper presents a review of power-factor-correction (PFC) circuits for low-and medium-power single-phase power supplies. The main idea is not just to show the state of the art of this topic but to select the most interesting topologies for each application depending on the power level, the input voltage range, and the output voltage. Since IEC(More)
Person re-identification is an open and challenging problem in computer vision. Existing re-identification approaches focus on optimal methods for features matching (e.g., metric learning approaches) or study the inter-camera transformations of such features. These methods hardly ever pay attention to the problem of visual ambiguities shared between the(More)
This paper presents a converter structure applied to supply high power Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) from the mains in a street lighting system, based on the Reduced Redundant Power Processing (R<sup>2</sup>P<sup>2</sup>) principle. To guarantee high power factor and low harmonic injection a buck-boost operating in Discontinuous Conduction Mode (DCM) is(More)
This article describes an image processing system based on an intelligent ad-hoc camera, whose two principle elements are a high speed 1.2 megapixel Complementary Metal Oxide Semiconductor (CMOS) sensor and a Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA). The latter is used to control the various sensor parameter configurations and, where desired, to receive and(More)
