2013 IEEE International Workshop on Performance Evaluation of Tracking and Surveillance (PETS 2013)

Visual surveillance is a major research area in computer vision. The scientific challenge in crowd image analysis is to devise and implement automatic systems for obtaining detailed information about the movements of, and collective behaviour of, individuals and groups within a crowded scene observed by a single camera or by a network of cameras. Crowd image analysis is a key technology in the following areas to name just three: crowd management (development of strategies to ensure public safety) video surveillance (automatic detection of anomalies and alarms) footfall (measurement of number of people entering a shop or public space).


2011 8th Intl. Symp. on Noninvasive Functional Source Imaging of the Brain & Heart and the 8th Intl. Conference on Bioelectromagnetism (NFSI & ICBEM)

Unequal authenticity protection of video multicasting

Jian-Ru Chen; Chun-Shien Lu 2008 IEEE International Conference on Multimedia and Expo, 2008

Multicast video authentication is important to verify the authenticity of video data transmitted over the network. In this paper, we focus on unequal authenticity protection for video multicasting. A two-stage authentication strategy, which is composed of hash-based authentication and FEC-based correction, is proposed to resist the pollution attack. Different from the traditional methods, the FEC parameters instead of the rate ...


Resolution Recovery in PET During AWOSEM Reconstruction: A Performance Evaluation Study

Elisabetta De Bernardi; Marco Mazzoli; Felicia Zito; Giuseppe Baselli IEEE Transactions on Nuclear Science, 2007

Lesion detectability and quantification in fluorine-18-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography oncological studies are highly affected by space variant blur. The performance of spatial resolution recovery during AWOSEM iterative reconstruction was assessed by including in the system matrix a simple model of point spread function fitted on experimentally acquired point source sinograms. The model described axial, tangential and radial blur; radial asymmetry ...


Quad-HIDAC, a next-generation PET camera for small-animal imaging

A. Jeavons 2000 IEEE Nuclear Science Symposium. Conference Record (Cat. No.00CH37149), 2000

Summary form only received as follows: A quad-detector HIDAC camera with 64 converters is now fully operational for small animal PET. The field-of-view is 170 mm in diameter by 280 mm axially with a uniform, three-dimensional spatial resolution of 1 mm/sup 3/ (fwhm). Scatter-corrected sensitivity is 2% for a central point source or 74,000 cps/uCi/ee for a uniform phantom 55 ...


Improved flexible thin-film solar cells with nanoimprinted light management textures

K. Wilken; U. W. Paetzold; M. Meier; N. Prager; M. Fahland; F. Finger; V. Smirnov 2015 IEEE 42nd Photovoltaic Specialist Conference (PVSC), 2015

A nanoimprint based approach to achieve efficient light management for solar cells on low temperature transparent polymer (PET) films is presented. The imprint-textured PET substrates show excellent light scattering properties and lead to significantly improved incoupling and trapping of the light in the solar cell, resulting in a current density of 12.9 mA/cm2, similar to that on a glass substrate ...


Distributed MLEM: An Iterative Tomographic Image Reconstruction Algorithm for Distributed Memory Architectures

Jingyu Cui; Guillem Pratx; Bowen Meng; Craig S. Levin IEEE Transactions on Medical Imaging, 2013

The processing speed for positron emission tomography (PET) image reconstruction has been greatly improved in recent years by simply dividing the workload to multiple processors of a graphics processing unit (GPU). However, if this strategy is generalized to a multi-GPU cluster, the processing speed does not improve linearly with the number of GPUs. This is because large data transfer is ...
