In applications such as airport operations, military simulations, and medical simulations, conducting simulations in accurate and realistic settings that are represented by real video imaging sequences becomes essential. This paper surveys recent work that enables visually realistic model constructions and the simulation of synthetic objects which are inserted in video sequences, and illustrates how synthetic objects can conduct intelligent behavior within a visual augmented reality.

Using Augmented Reality For Studying Left Turn Maneuver At Un-signalized Intersection And Horizontal Visibility Blockage

The results from this work supported the validity of the AR systems to be used as a surrogate to the field-testing for transportation research.

Augmented Reality Experiment: Drivers' Behavior at an Unsignalized Intersection

This paper presents two systems, i.e., AR vehicle (ARV) and offline AR simulator (OARSim) systems, and uses them to study the left-turn driving behavior at an unsignalized intersection for drivers with different characteristics, showing promise for these systems to be used as surrogates to in-the-field testing for safety and operation aspects of transportation research.

Augmented Reality Based Traffic Sign Recognition for Improved Driving Safety

A new approach is presented for marker-less AR-TSR system that superimposes augmented virtual objects onto a real scene under all types of driving situations including unfavorable weather conditions and virtual objects can be coherently inserted into the video sequence captured by the camera so that synthetic traffic signs may be added to increase safety.

Left-Turn Phasing—State-of-the-Art Review and the Outlook for Future Improvements

Left-turns are one of the most critical maneuvers at signalized intersections. There are several types of left turn signal phasing in use: protected-only, permitted/protected, permitted-only, and

Random Neural Network for Lightweight Attack Detection in the IoT

This paper addresses the use of a learning recurrent Random Neural Network to build a lightweight detector for certain types of Botnet attacks on IoT systems, and shows that it can lead to high detection rates of the order of 96%, with false alarm rates of a few percent.

The components of the stereo vision and augmented reality system are described and some preliminary results of the use ofThe stereo robotic system mounted on a mobile laboratory vehicle and calibrated using a pin-hole camera model are illustrated.

Enhanced Reality Visualization in a Surgical Environment

A system for performing enhanced reality visualization in a surgical environment that is fully automatic, runs in nearly real-time, is accurate to within a pixel, allows both patient and camera motion, automatically corrects for changes to the internal camera parameters (focal length, focus, aperture, etc.) and requires only a single image.

Steering Behaviors For Autonomous Characters

This paper presents solutions for one requirement of autonomous characters in animation and games: the ability to navigate around their world in a life-like and improvisational manner by dividing motion behavior into three levels.

Flocks, herds and schools: A distributed behavioral model

This paper explores an approach based on simulation as an alternative to scripting the paths of each bird individually, an elaboration of a particle systems, with the simulated birds being the particles.

Traffic and video quality with adaptive neural compression

This work presents a novel neural method to achieve real-time adaptive compression of video that tends to maintain a target quality of the decompressed image specified by the user.

Reinforcement Learning in the Multi-Robot Domain

A formulation of reinforcement learning that enables learning in noisy, dynamic environments such as in the complex concurrent multi-robot learning domain and experimentally validate the approach on a group of four mobile robots learning a foraging task.

Low bit-rate video compression with neural networks and temporal subsampling

A novel neural network technique for video compression is described, using a "point-process" type neural network model the authors have developed which is closer to biophysical reality and is mathematically much more tractable than standard models.

Video quality and traffic QoS in learning-based subsampled and receiver-interpolated video sequences

It is shown that deliberately dropping frames will significantly reduce the amount of offered traffic in the network, and hence the cell loss probability and network congestion, while the NN post-processor will preserve most of the desired video quality.
