Background subtraction is important for detecting moving objects in videos. Currently, there are many approaches to performing background subtraction. However, they usually neglect the fact that the background images consist of different objects whose conditions may change frequently. In this paper, a novel hierarchical background model is proposed based on(More)
—A structured light vision system using pattern projection is useful for robust reconstruction of three-dimensional objects. One of the major tasks in using such a system is the calibration of the sensing system. This paper presents a new method by which a two-degree-of-freedom structured light system can be automatically recalibrated, if and when the(More)
Structured light vision systems have been successfully used for accurate measurement of 3D surfaces in computer vision. However, their applications are mainly limited to scanning stationary objects so far since tens of images have to be captured for recovering one 3D scene. This paper presents an idea for real-time acquisition of 3D surface data by a(More)
OBJECTIVE Intraplaque hemorrhage is an increasingly recognized contributor to plaque instability. Neovascularization of plaque is believed to facilitate the entry of inflammatory and red blood cells (RBC). Under physiological conditions, neovessels are subject to mechanical loading from the deformation of atherosclerotic plaque by blood pressure and flow.(More)
