We propose a system for extracting eye gaze information, and develop a couple of new human interface media by eye gaze information. For example, the observer wants to know visually how effectively the partner is interesting to him or not even on the net environment. To do this it is usually expected to utilize motion images. But, the observer wants to know(More)
In this paper, we propose an effective measure to compute rareness' of pixel blocks compared with other blocks and also introduce a region segmentation method to extract significant blocks such as defects in visual inspection system. Our basic idea is based on the simple and realistic assumption that the target blocks should be detected must have different(More)
We had been researching and developed the original caricature generation system PICASSO. We realized an automated PICASSO system called PICASSO-2. We exhibited the robot that used PICASSO-2 system in the named COOPER in which PICASSO-2 is fabricated, at Aichi Expo EXPO2005. This robot acquires the face image of the visitor, extracts the facial features(More)
recognition such as eyes, a nose, a mouth, etc. This paper pays attention especially to eye (iris) recognition by Hough We have been developing the methods for facial parts "ansfom and new hierarchical method for face trackmg recognition such as eyes, a nose, a mouth, etc. This paper and recognition is proposed in order to realize a human pays especially to(More)
We took the face, especially eye or eye gaze, into consideration for discussing the non-verbal interface media. We first proposed a passive eye-camera system based on the facial image processing such as Hough transform for iris recognition. Next we proposed a method for generating eye-contacted facial images by computer image processing for enforcing and(More)
In this paper, we propose a new visual inspection method that can analyze the exterior surface of rubber tires with the light stripe projection. Image sensing of the tire surface was implemented by setting the tire on the rotating table so that the normal pattern of the tire surface could be suppressed. The proposed method detects the exterior thin defect(More)
