This paper proposes a novel high-order local pattern descriptor, local derivative pattern (LDP), for face recognition. LDP is a general framework to encode directional pattern features based on local derivative variations. The <i>nth</i>-order LDP is proposed to encode the (<i>n</i>-1)<i>th</i> -order local derivative direction variations, which can capture(More)
This paper proposes a novel Kernel Similarity Modeling of Texture Pattern Flow (KSM-TPF) for background modeling and motion detection in complex and dynamic environments. The Texture Pattern Flow encodes the binary pattern changes in both spatial and temporal neighborhoods. The integral histogram of Texture Pattern Flow is employed to extract the(More)
Active Shape Model (ASM) is one of the most popular methods for image alignment. To improve its matching accuracy, in this paper, ASM searching method is combined with a simplified Elastic Bunch Graph Matching (EBGM) algorithm. Considering that EBGM is too time-consuming, landmarks are grouped into contour points and inner points, and inner points are(More)
This paper introduces a new BeiHang (BH) Keystroke Dynamics Database for testing and evaluation of biometric approaches. Different from the existing keystroke dynamics researches which solely rely on laboratory experiments, the developed database is collected from a real commercialized system and thus is more comprehensive and more faithful to human(More)
Gabor wavelet related feature extraction and classification is an important topic in image analysis and pattern recognition. Gabor features can be used either holistically or analytically. While holistic approaches involve significant computational complexity, existing analytic approaches require explicit correspondence of predefined feature points for(More)
Human-centric driver assistance systems with integrated sensing, processing and networking aim to find solutions for traffic accidents and other relevant issues. The key technology for developing such a system is the capability of automatically understanding and characterizing driver behaviors. This paper proposes a novel driving posture recognition(More)
Feature extraction and classification using Gabor wavelets have proven to be successful in computer vision and pattern recognition. Gabor feature based Elastic Bunch Graph Matching (EBGM), which demonstrated excellent performance in the FERET evaluation test, has been considered as one of the best algorithms for face recognition due to its robustness(More)
—Micropattern based image representation and recognition, e.g. Local Binary Pattern (LBP), has been proved successful over the past few years due to its advantages of illumination tolerance and computational efficiency. However, LBP only encodes the first-order radial-directional derivatives of spatial images and is inadequate to completely describe the(More)
evaluation rules are proposed and observed for a fair comparison. To reduce the high feature dimensionality problem, uniform quantization is used to partition the spatial histograms. The experimental results reveal that: 1) micropattern representation based on Gabor magnitude features outperforms the other three representations, and the performances of the(More)
