Researchers have been taking advantage of visual attention in various image processing applications such as image retargeting, video coding, etc. Recently, many saliency detection algorithms have been proposed by extracting features in spatial or transform domains. In this paper, a novel saliency detection model is introduced by utilizing low-level features(More)
This research work is aimed to develop autonomous bio-monitoring mobile robots, which are capable of tracking and measuring patients' motions, recognizing the patients' behavior based on observation data, and providing calling for medical personnel in emergency situations in home environment. The robots to be developed will bring about cost-effective, safe(More)
—Saliency computation has become a popular research field for many applications due to the useful information provided by saliency maps. For a saliency map, local relations around the salient regions in multi-channel perspective should be taken into consideration by aiming uniformity on the region of interest as an internal approach. And, irrelevant salient(More)
Our research is focused on the development of an at-home health care biomonitoring mobile robot for the people in demand. Main task of the robot is to detect and track a designated subject while recognizing his/her activity for analysis and to provide warning in an emergency. In order to push forward the system towards its real application, in this study,(More)
Ultrasound imaging is an effective way to measure the muscle activity in electrical stimulation studies. However, it is a time consuming task to manually measure pennation angle and muscle thickness, which are the benchmark features to analyze muscle activity from the ultrasound imaging. In previous studies, the muscle features were measured by calculating(More)
Saliency maps as visual attention computational models can reveal novel regions within a scene (as in the human visual system), which can decrease the amount of data to be processed in task specific computer vision applications. Most of the saliency computation models do not take advantage of prior spatial memory by giving priority to spatial or object(More)
Small satellites have limited payload and their attitudes are sometimes difficult to determine from the limited onboard sensors alone. Wrong attitudes lead to inaccurate map projections and measurements that require post-processing correction. In this study, we propose an automated and robust scheme that derives the satellite attitude from its observation(More)
In this paper, detecting and tracking of a car is aimed using a stationary camera system. Background subtraction is used to detect motion and Kalman filter is used for tracking of a moving car. Classification of the car is accomplished utilizing Support Vector Machines (SVMs) and Artificial Neural Networks (ANNs). In using SVMs and ANNs, some features(More)
