Being `undigital' with digital cameras: extending dynamic range by combining differently exposed pictures
This work proposes a means of combining diierently exposed pictures to obtain a single picture of extended dynamic range, and improved color delity, which works reliably with images from a digital camera of unknown response, or from a scanner with unknown response. Expand

It is argued that exposure adjustment by gamma correction is inherently flawed, and alternatives are provided, which give rise to a new kind of processing in the "amplitude domain". Expand
Video orbits of the projective group a simple approach to featureless estimation of parameters
We present direct featureless methods for estimating the eight parameters of an "exact" projective (homographic) coordinate transformation to register pairs of images, together with the applicationExpand
Sousveillance: Inventing and Using Wearable Computing Devices for Data Collection in Surveillance Environments.
Using wearable computing devices to perform "sousveillance" (inverse surveillance) as a counter to organizational surveillance generates new kinds of information in a social surveillance situation. Expand
Wearable Computing: A First Step Toward Personal Imaging
The wearable personal imaging system was designed and built to explore new concepts in imaging and lighting, and differed from present-day laptops and personal digital assistants in that it could keep an eye on the screen while walking around and doing other things. Expand
OpenVIDIA: parallel GPU computer vision
This paper proposes using GPUs in approximately the reverse way: to assist in "converting pictures into numbers" (i.e. computer vision) and provides a simple API which implements some common computer vision algorithms. Expand
An historical account of the 'WearComp' and 'WearCam' inventions developed for applications in 'personal imaging'

  • 13 October 1997
An historical account of the author's wearable computer effort, from the 1970s (WearComp0) to present, with emphasis on a particular variation whose origins were in imaging applications. Expand
Augmented Reality through Wearable Computing
A text-based augmented reality, the Remembrance Agent, is presented to illustrate this approach, and a long-term goal of this project is to model the user's actions, anticipate his or her needs, and perform a seamless interaction between the virtual and physical environments. Expand
Virtual bellows: constructing high quality stills from video
This work shows how the virtual bellows, which implements the projective group, is an exact model fit to both pan and tilt, and identifies two important classes of image sequences accommodated by thevirtual bellows. Expand
Wearable Computing: Toward Humanistic Intelligence
It is common in the field of human–computer interaction to think of the human and computer as separate entities. (Indeed, the term “HCI” emphasizes this separateness by treating the human andExpand
