In this paper we present a new structure capable of characterizing hand posture, as well as its movement. Topology of a self-organizing neural network determines posture, whereas its adaptation dynamics throughout time determines gesture. This adaptive character of the network allows us to avoid the correspondence problem of other methods, so that the(More)
MR Imaging techniques provide a non-invasive and accurate method for determining the ultra-structural features of human anatomy. In this study, we utilise a novel approach to segment out the ventricular system in a series of high resolution T1-weighted MR images. Our approach is based on an automated landmark extraction algorithm which automatically selects(More)
This paper aims to address the ability of self-organizing neural network models to manage real-time applications. Specifically, we introduce fAGNG (fast Autonomous Growing Neural Gas), a modified learning algorithm for the incremental model Growing Neural Gas (GNG) network. The Growing Neural Gas network with its attributes of growth, flexibility, rapid(More)
With the advent of low-cost 3D sensors and 3D printers, surface reconstruction has become an important research topic in the last years. In this work, we propose an automatic method for 3D surface reconstruction from raw unorganized point clouds acquired using low-cost sensors. We have modified the Growing Neural Gas (GNG) network, which is a suitable model(More)
The use of 3D data in mobile robotics provides valuable information about the robot's environment. Traditionally, stereo cameras have been used as a low-cost 3D sensor. However, the lack of precision and texture for some surfaces suggests that the use of other 3D sensors could be more suitable. In this work, we examine the use of two sensors: an infrared(More)
Several recent works deal with 3D data in mobile robotic problems, e.g. mapping or egomotion. Data comes from any kind of sensor such as stereo vision systems, time of flight cameras or 3D lasers, providing a huge amount of unorganized 3D data. In this paper, we describe an efficient method to build complete 3D models from a Growing Neural Gas (GNG). The(More)
We propose the use of a self-organizing neural network, the Growing Neural Gas, to represent bidimensional objects, due to its quality of topology preservation. As a result of an adaptative process, the object is represented by a Topology Preserving Graph, that constitutes an induced Delaunay triangulation of their shapes. Features that are extracted from(More)
