Estimating the disparity field between two stereo images is a common task in computer vision, e.g., to determine a dense depth map. Variational methods currently are among the most accurate techniques for dense disparity map reconstruction. In this paper a multi-level adap-tive technique is combined with a multigrid approach that allows the variational(More)
This paper presents a real-time face detection algorithm. It improves state-of-the-art 2D object detection techniques by additionally evaluating a disparity map, which is estimated for the face region using a calibrated stereo camera setup. First, faces are detected in the 2D images with a rapid object classifier based on haar-like features. In a second(More)
This paper addresses the problem of space-time stereo with active illumination and presents a formulation of this problem in the vari-ational framework. Variational problems of this scale are computationally expensive to solve directly. We overcome this challenge by showing that speed-improving techniques, as the full-multi-grid and the(More)
This paper presents a real-time face recognition system. The system uses a stereo camera to locate, track, and recognize a person's face. Our algorithm improves state-of-the-art monocular 2D object recognition techniques by additionally considering the facial 3D surface, which is relatively stable under different lighting conditions. First, faces are(More)
Potentials produced in the frog thalamus by electrical stimulation of the peripheral nerves were investigated by sink and current source-density analysis. Sinks, which are viewed as potential generation sites, were located in three regions: the cell-free zone of the ventral thalamus adjoining the ventrolateral nucleus, the ventromedial and ventrolateral(More)
Potentials in the frog thalamus evoked by electrical stimulation of peripheral nerves were studied by the current source-density method. Sinks, considered to be the sites of potentials generations, were found in three regions: in cell-free zone of the ventral thalamus neighbouring the ventrolateral nucleus; in the ventromedial and ventrolateral nuclei; in(More)
