Algorithms for designing a mother wavelet ( ) such that it matches a signal of interest and such that the family of wavelets 2 ( 2) (2 ) forms an orthonormal Riesz basis of ( ) are developed. The algorithms are based on a closed form solution for finding the scaling function spectrum from the wavelet spectrum. Many applications of signal representation,(More)
In this paper we present a new form of wavelet transform. Unlike the continuous wavelet transform (CWT) or discrete wavelet transform (DWT), the mother wavelet is chosen to be a discrete-time signal and wavelet coefficients are computed by correlating a given discrete-time signal with continuous dilations of the mother wavelet. The results developed are(More)
Detection of malaria parasites in stained blood smears is critical for treatment of the disease. Automation of this process will help in reducing the time taken for diagnosis and the chance for human errors. However, the variability and artifacts in microscope images of blood samples pose significant challenges for accurate detection. A scheme based on HSV(More)
The diagnosis and treatment of malaria infection requires detecting the presence of the malaria parasite in the patient as well as identification of the parasite species. We present an image processing-based approach to detect parasites in microscope images of a blood smear and an ontology-based classification of the stage of the parasite for identifying(More)
Attenuation and backscatter from aerosol suspension in the atmosphere cause drop in visibility which manifests as haziness or fogginess in images captured of objects at a distance, especially from airborne cameras. Two iterative algorithms, based on a physical model relating image intensity to ground reflectance as a function of the scatter process, are(More)
Very large format video or wide-area motion imagery (WAMI) acquired by an airborne camera sensor array is characterized by persistent observation over a large field-of-view with high spatial resolution but low frame rates (i.e. one to ten frames per second). Current WAMI sensors have sufficient coverage and resolution to track vehicles for many hours using(More)
The need for persistent video covering large geospatial areas using embedded camera networks and stand-off sensors has increased over the past decade. The availability of inexpensive, compact, light-weight, energy-efficient, high resolution optical sensors and associated digital image processing hardware has led to a new class of airborne surveillance(More)
