Colorization of a grayscale photograph often requires considerable effort from the user, either by placing numerous color scribbles over the image to initialize a color propagation algorithm, or by looking for a suitable reference image from which color information can be transferred. Even with this user supplied data, colorized images may appear unnatural(More)
In this paper, we propose a novel ellipse detection method for real images. The proposed method uses the information of edge curvature and their convexity in relation to other edge contours as clues for identifying edge contours that can be grouped together. A search region is computed for every edge contour that contains other edge contours eligible for(More)
A neural-based crowd estimation system for surveillance in complex scenes at underground station platform is presented. Estimation is carried out by extracting a set of significant features from sequences of images. Those feature indexes are modeled by a neural network to estimate the crowd density. The learning phase is based on our proposed hybrid of the(More)
Most dominant point detection methods require heuristically chosen control parameters. One of the commonly used control parameter is maximum deviation. This paper uses a theoretical bound of the maximum deviation of pixels obtained by digitization of a line segment for constructing a general framework to make most dominant point detection methods(More)
Road sign recognition system remains a challenging part of designing an Intelligent Driving Support System. While there exist many approaches to classify road signs, none have adopted an unsupervised approach. This paper proposes a way of Self-Organizing feature mapping for recognizing a road sign. The emergent self-organizing map (ESOM) is employed for the(More)
