In this paper we propose a character segmentation method for multispectral images of ancient documents. Due to the low quality of the images the main idea of this study is to combine the multispectral behavior and contextual spatial information. Therefore we utilize a Markov Random Field model using the spectral information of the images and stroke(More)
In this study we analyze texture and profile features of painted strokes in order to identify the drawing media used for sketching underdrawings. Underdrawings are preliminary drawings on the panel prepared for paintings and are unseen in the finished work. Cameras working in the near infrared range allow the visualization of underdrawings. Due to the tiny(More)
Multi-spectral imaging for the analysis and preservation of ancient documents has gained high attention in recent years. While readability enhancement is based on the multi-spectral image corpus, foreground-background separation still relies mainly on gray level or color images. In this paper we propose a foreground-background separation algorithm designed(More)
Two medieval manuscripts are recorded, investigated and analyzed by philologists in collaboration with computer scientists. Due to mold, air humidity and water the parchment is partially damaged and consequently hard to read. In order to enhance the readability of the text, the manuscript pages are imaged in different spectral bands ranging from 360 to(More)
Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), like adaptive cruise control, collision avoidance systems, and, ultimately, piloted and autonomous driving are increasingly evolving into safety-critical systems. These ADAS to a large degree rely on proper function of in-vehicle Computer-Vision Systems (CVS), which is hard to assess in a timely manner, due to(More)
