Concealed Weapon Detection in a Human Body by Infrared Imaging

  title={Concealed Weapon Detection in a Human Body by Infrared Imaging},
  author={Mahadevi Parande and Shridevi Soma},
The detection of weapon concealed underneath a person’s cloths is very much important for the security of the public as well as the safety of public assets like airports, buildings, and railway stations etc. The goal is to develop an automatic detection and recognition system of concealed weapons using sensor technologies and image processing. The goal of this paper is to present the Concealed Weapon Detection method by infrared imaging (IR). Normal image is the human perception vision, whereas…
