Easy Camera Calibration From Inter-Image Homographies

Xiaochun Cao; H. Foroosh 2004 Conference on Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition Workshop, 2004

This paper addresses the problem of calibrating a pinhole camera using images of a symmetric object. Assuming a unit aspect ratio, and zero skew, we show that inter-image homographies can be expressed as a function of the principal point. By minimizing the symmetric transfer error of geometric distances, we thus obtain an accurate solution for the calibration parameters. We show ...

  • Symbolic Analysis

    The tools and techniques you need to break the analog design bottleneck! Ten years ago, analog seemed to be a dead-end technology. Today, System-on-Chip (SoC) designs are increasingly mixed-signal designs. With the advent of application-specific integrated circuits (ASIC) technologies that can integrate both analog and digital functions on a single chip, analog has become more crucial than ever to the design process. Today, designers are moving beyond hand-crafted, one-transistor-at-a-time methods. They are using new circuit and physical synthesis tools to design practical analog circuits; new modeling and analysis tools to allow rapid exploration of system level alternatives; and new simulation tools to provide accurate answers for analog circuit behaviors and interactions that were considered impossible to handle only a few years ago. To give circuit designers and CAD professionals a better understanding of the history and the current state of the art in the field, this volume collects in one place the essential set of analog CAD papers that form the foundation of today's new analog design automation tools. Areas covered are: Analog synthesis Symbolic analysis Analog layout Analog modeling and analysis Specialized analog simulation Circuit centering and yield optimization Circuit testing Computer-Aided Design of Analog Integrated Circuits and Systems is the cutting-edge reference that will be an invaluable resource for every semiconductor circuit designer and CAD professional who hopes to break the analog design bottleneck.

  • Neural, Fuzzy, and ApproximationBased Control

    The assumption of linearity must be given due credit for the tremendous practical impact that control systems have had over the last several decades. However, as the original challenges have been encountered and overcome, and as the control and automation of complex, large-scale problems are being sought, effective methods for dealing with nonlinear systems have become essential. One key component of nonlinear controls technology is representations or models of nonlinear systems that are derived from operational data. Such models, referred to as _approximators_, are the focus of this chapter. Specific attention is paid to neural networks and fuzzy models. These topics are discussed within a general formulation that emphasizes their close relationships with other approximator structures. In this chapter, several associated properties are noted and defined, including universal approximation, linear and nonlinear parameterizations, generalization, and approximator transparency. Compared to most other chapters in this volume, this one is relatively theoretical. Less formal introductions to neural networks and fuzzy logic can be found in Chapter 5; some applications are discussed therein and in Chapter 16. An important problem in approximator development is the estimation of the approximator parameters. This chapter discusses some algorithms - specifically steepest descent, least-squares, and Lyapunov-based algorithms - that can be used for this purpose. Some degree of modeling error is inescapable, and this realization has motivated the development of extensions to parameter estimation algorithms. Readers interested in additional nonlinear control methods may also find Chapter 8 of interest, which provides a readable technical introduction to a popular nonlinear control design technique, slidingmode control.

  • Automated License Plate Recognition

    The ability to recognize and extract license plate information from still images or videos is an essential component of many modern transportation and public safety solutions. Although human review of some imagery is still employed for this purpose, much of this has given way to automated license plate recognition (ALPR). In fact, ALPR has in many ways transformed the public safety and transportation industries¿¿¿helping enable modern tolled roadway solutions, providing tremendous operational cost savings via automation, and even enabling completely new capabilities in the marketplace (e.g., police cruiser¿¿¿mounted license plate reading units). This chapter provides an overview of the technology behind ALPR solutions. The key modules typically found within an ALPR system are outlined, along with highlights of some of the most common methods employed to achieve state¿¿¿of¿¿¿the¿¿¿art performance.

  • On Vulnerabilities of IoT???Based Consumer???Oriented Closed???Loop Control Automation Systems

    Automation or automatic control is the utilization of various types of control systems and schemes to accomplish basic or complex electrical, mechanical or other tasks with minimum or no human intervention. While plenty of literature has emerged in very recent years that deal with the repercussions of attacks on industrial systems, there is not much literature addressing the compromising of consumer???oriented processes in the context of Internet of Things (IoT) devices and automation. This chapter addresses two specific areas where vulnerabilities can pose high risks: feedback loops and the utilization of centralized service providers. It highlights vulnerabilities in an area that is gradually being the target of a mix of contributions encompassing specialized subjects such as automatic control theory, control systems engineering, information technology, data science, technical standards, Internet governance, and many others. Because of its relationship and synergy with industrial control systems, the chapter also briefly deals with appropriate concepts in this area.
