BACKGROUND There is a need for effective and early functional rehabilitation of patients with gait and balance problems including those with spinal cord injury, neurological diseases and recovering from hip fractures, a common consequence of falls especially in the elderly population. Gait training in these patients using partial body weight support (BWS)(More)
Optical flow can be reliably estimated between areas visible in two images, but not in occlusion areas. If optical flow is needed in the whole image domain, one approach is to use additional views of the same scene. If such views are unavailable, an often-used alternative is to extrapolate optical flow in occlusion areas. Since the location of such areas is(More)
The compression of multiview video in an end-to-end 3D system is required to reduce the amount of visual information. Since multiple cameras usually have a common field of view, high compression ratios can be achieved if both the temporal and interview redundancy are exploited. View synthesis prediction is a new coding tool for multiview video that(More)

Automultiscopic (no glasses, multiview) displays are becoming a viable alternative to 3-D displays with glasses. However, since these displays require multiple views the needed transmission bit rate as well as storage space are of concern. In this paper, we describe results of our research on the compression of still multiview images for display on(More)
Recent project of National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) to Mars promised to show 3D images of Mars surface. Spirit and Opportunity, identical Mars rovers of NASA, are equipped with a high-resolution stereo camera pair, called PanCam. Most cameras used by people are sensitive to three color bands, namely red (R), green (G) and blue (B). The(More)
