Despite the prevalence of smart TVs, many consumers continue to use conventional TVs with supplementary set-top boxes (STBs) because of the high cost of smart TVs. However, because the processing power of a STB is quite low, the smart TV functionalities that can be implemented in a STB are very limited. Because of this, negligible research has been(More)
With the development of intelligent surveillance systems, the need for accurate detection of pedestrians by cameras has increased. However, most of the previous studies use a single camera system, either a visible light or thermal camera, and their performances are affected by various factors such as shadow, illumination change, occlusion, and higher(More)
The need for computer vision-based human detection has increased in fields, such as security, intelligent surveillance and monitoring systems. However, performance enhancement of human detection based on visible light cameras is limited, because of factors, such as nonuniform illumination, shadows and low external light in the evening and night.(More)
The performance of unimodal biometric systems (based on a single modality such as face or fingerprint) has to contend with various problems, such as illumination variation, skin condition and environmental conditions, and device variations. Therefore, multimodal biometric systems have been used to overcome the limitations of unimodal biometrics and provide(More)
As face recognition technology has developed, it has become widely used in various applications such as door access control, intelligent surveillance, and mobile phone security. One of its applications is its adoption in TV environments to supply viewers with intelligent services and high convenience. In a TV environment, the in-plane rotation of a viewer's(More)
Intelligent surveillance systems have been studied by many researchers. These systems should be operated in both daytime and nighttime, but objects are invisible in images captured by visible light camera during the night. Therefore, near infrared (NIR) cameras, thermal cameras (based on medium-wavelength infrared (MWIR), and long-wavelength infrared (LWIR)(More)
With the rapid growth of smart TV, the necessity for recognizing a viewer has increased for various applications that deploy face recognition to provide intelligent services and high convenience to viewers. However, the viewers can have various postures, illumination, and expression variations on their faces while watching TV, and thereby, the performance(More)
