A Neural integrated Fuzzy conTroller (NiF-T) which integrates the fuzzy logic representation of human knowledge with the learning capability of neural networks is developed for nonlinear dynamic control problems. NiF-T architecture comprises of three distinct parts: (1) Fuzzy logic Membership Functions (FMF), (2) a Rule Neural Network (RNN), and (3) an(More)
Accurate and efficient monitoring of dynamically changing environments is one of the most important requirements for visual surveillance systems. This paper describes development of a ubiquitous vision system for this monitoring purpose. The system consisting of multiple omnidirectional vision sensors is developed to address two specific surveillance tasks:(More)

A new " range-space " approach is described for synergistic resolution of both stereovision and reflectance (visual) modeling problems simultaneously. This synergistic approach can be applied to arbitrary camera arrangements with different intrinsic and extrinsic parameters, image types, image resolutions, and image number. These images are analyzed in a(More)
Image segmentations have been performed to identify the surface fragmentation of rock piles using 3D surface data, and quantified. The advantages for fragmentation measurement using image analysis are significant and include: quantifying image segmentation performance in isolation of the downstream processes of fragment classification and size distribution(More)
In this paper we describe elements of an ubiquitous vision system-a system that enables viewers to observe a remote dynamic scene from any viewing perspective at any time instant. This integrated framework has the potential to achieve real-time generation of many 3D virtual views concurrently with high-dynamic events in the scene, by not utilizing 3D model.(More)
Image-based rendering (IBR) involves constructing an image from a new viewpoint, using several input images from different viewpoints. Our approach is to acquire or estimate the depth for each pixel of each input image. We then reconstruct the new view from the resulting collection of 3D points. When rendering images from photographs, acquiring and(More)
