Estimating the amount and center of distortion from lines in the scene has been addressed in the literature by the so-called " plumbline " approach. In this paper we propose a new geometric method to estimate not only the distortion parameters but the entire camera calibration (up to an " angular " scale factor) using a minimum of 3 lines. We propose a new(More)
— Stereotypical motor movements are one of the most common and least understood behaviors occurring in individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). The traditional methods for recording the number of occurrences and duration of stereotypies are insufficient and time consuming. Thus the objective of this study is to automatically detect stereotypical(More)
This paper addresses the problem of rigid motion estimation and 3D reconstruction in vision systems where it is possible to recover the incident light ray direction from the image points. Such systems include pinhole cameras and catadioptric cameras. Given two images of the same scene acquired from two different positions, the transformation is estimated by(More)
Stereotypical motor movements are one of the most common and least understood behaviors occurring in individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). To overcome problems with traditional methods for measuring stereotypical motor movements in persons with ASD, the Kinect sensor from Microsoft and gesture recognition algorithms were used to automatically(More)
—The tradeoff between error-correcting performance and numerical complexity of LDPC decoding algorithms is a well-known problem. In this paper we depict the unseen error-floor performance of the Self-Corrected Min-Sum algorithm for long length DVB-S2 codes. We developed a massively parallel simulation using GPUs which allowed a comprehensive BER(More)
This paper analyzes the problem of the estimation of the local mirror shape in a catadioptric imaging system. We propose a method to recover the 3D coordinates of mirror surface points as long as there are images of those points, i.e., as long as there is an image of a 3D geometric element that is reflected by those points. For that purpose the information(More)
In this paper we analyze the problem of motion estimation from a sequence of stereo images. We formulate both the differential and discrete approaches of two methods. The differential approach uses differential optical ¤ow whereas the discrete approaches uses feature correspondences. We use both methods to compute, £rst, the 3D velocity in the Z direction(More)
In this paper, we address the problem of pose estimation under the framework of generalized camera models. We propose a solution based on the knowledge of the coordinates of 3-D straight lines (expressed in the world coordinate frame) and their corresponding image pixels. Previous approaches used the knowledge of the coordinates of 3-D points (zero(More)
This paper describes a new method to calibrate the intrinsic and extrinsic parameters of a generalized catadioptric camera (central or non-central) if correspondences between incident lines in space and pixels are provided (black box model calibration) in an arbitrary world reference frame. The parameters calibrated are the intrinsic parameters of the(More)
The present study evaluates the presence and functional proprieties of the Na(+)-HCO(3)(-) cotransporter (NBC) in immortalized renal proximal tubular epithelial cells from spontaneously hypertensive (SHR) and normotensive Wistar-Kyoto (WKY) rats. The expected size and nucleotide sequence of a 1031-bp fragment corresponding to type 1 NBC (NBC1) was(More)
