Moving shadow detection is a fundamental step in video-surveillance applications since it is generally confused with foreground. In this paper, we propose a novel statistical non-parametric method to detect moving shadow in a road traffic image sequences. We consider a diagonal model to describe the shadow distortion in the RGB color space. A Support Vector… (More)
X-ray forward and backward projections are major steps in all iterative tomographic reconstruction techniques. To ensure the quality of the reconstruction results, the projector should fit the imaging system geometry and the x-ray physic as well as possible. In this paper, we intend to show the benefit of our proposed kernel estimate based forward… (More)
There is growing concern about the problems of waste elimination. We should consider our environment as being borrowed from future generations and refrain from leaving a legacy of problems we are not able to solve. Various oxidation techniques are suited for the elimination of organic aqueous wastes, but because of the environmental drawbacks of… (More)
