Motivation for this research is the real-time restoration of faint astronomical images through turbulence over a large field-of-view. A simulation platform was developed to predict the centroid of a science object, convolved through multiple perturbation fields, and projected on to an image plane. Centroid data were selected from various source and target(More)
The performance of a microsleep detection system was calculated in terms of its ability to detect the behavioural microsleep state (1-s epochs) from spectral features derived from 16-channel EEG sampled at 256 Hz. Best performance from a single classifier model was achieved using leaky integrator neurons on an echo state network (ESN) classifier with a mean(More)
This study investigates the classification ability of linear and nonlinear classifiers on biological signals using the electroencephalogram (EEG) and examines the impact of architectural changes within the classifier in order to enhance the classification. Consequently, artificial events were used to validate a prototype EEG-based microsleep detection(More)
The maximum subarray problem is used to identify the subarray of a two dimensional array, where the sum of elements is maximized. In terms of image processing, the solution has been used to find the brightest region within an image. Two parallel algorithms of the maximum subarray problem solve this problem in O(n) and O(log n) time. A field programmable(More)
This paper describes a miniature camera module for capturing close-up video of one eye and the image processing steps to locate the pupil and measure eye closure from this video. This camera is one component of a multi-sensory device for measuring drowsiness and detecting complete momentary lapses of responsiveness. We describe a flood-fill-based algorithm(More)
—A new method is presented which provides prediction of the spatially variant point spread function for the restoration of astronomical images, distorted by atmospheric turbulence when viewed using ground-based telescopes. Our approach uses reservoir computing to firstly learn the spatio–temporal evolution of aberrations caused by turbulence, and secondly,(More)
