The use of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) for reconnaissance and surveillance applications has been steadily growing over the past few years. The operations of such largely autonomous systems rely primarily on the automatic detection and tracking of targets of interest. This paper presents a novel automatic multiple moving target detection and tracking(More)
Patients going home following major surgery are susceptible to complications such as wound infection, abscess formation, malnutrition, poor analgesia, and depression, all of which can develop after the fifth postoperative day and slow recovery. Although current hospital recovery monitoring systems are effective during perioperative and early postoperative(More)
Pervasive sensing is set to transform the future of patient care by continuous and intelligent monitoring of patient well-being. In practice, the detection of patient activity patterns over different time resolutions can be a complicated procedure, entailing the utilisation of multi-tier software architectures and processing of large volumes of data. This(More)
Pervasive healthcare environments provide an effective solution for monitoring the wellbeing of the elderly where the general trend of an increasingly ageing population has placed significant burdens on current healthcare systems. An important pervasive healthcare system functionality is patient motion analysis where gait information can be used to detect(More)
Human motion analysis provides a valuable solution for monitoring the wellbeing of the elderly, quantifying post-operative patient recovery and monitoring the progression of neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson’s. The development of accurate motion analysis models, however, requires the integration of multi-sensing modalities and the(More)
In vision-based systems, cast shadow detection is one of the key problems that must be alleviated in order to achieve robust segmentation of moving objects. Most methods for shadow detection require significant human input and they work in static settings. This paper proposes a novel approach for adaptive shadow detection by using semi-supervised learning(More)
This paper presents a novel real-time scale adaptive visual tracking framework and its use in smart traffic monitoring where the framework robustly detects and tracks vehicles from a stationary camera. Existing visual tracking methods often employ semi-supervised appearance models where a set of samples are continuously extracted around the object to train(More)
Visual Sensor Networks (VSNs) open up a new realm of smart autonomous applications based on enhanced three-dimensional sensing and collaborative reasoning. An emerging VSN application domain is pervasive healthcare delivery where gait information computed from distributed vision nodes is used for observing the wellbeing of the elderly, quantifying(More)
