2018 International Symposium on Power Electronics, Electrical Drives, Automation and Motion (SPEEDAM)

Power electronics and electric drives are more and more permeating industrial applications and their automation, systems for distributed electric generation, propulsion systems for road, railways, marine and other kinds of vehicles, on-board apparatuses for main or ancillary services, energy storage systems, robotics, household appliances and so on. Integration of technologies and smarter components and systems are some of the most relevant trends of the last years. Since long time the above mentioned topics have been the central themes of SPEEDAM Symposia, started in early ‘70s. We are pleased to note that the arguments are still very relevant and worldwide studied, also because in most of these application fields the market is still expanding. This justifies the effort in organizing our SPEEDAM international conference every two years, trying to focus attention to the emerging topics and to renew the traditional ones.

Bayesian Analysis of Lidar Signals with Multiple Returns

IEEE Transactions on Pattern Analysis and Machine Intelligence, 2007

Time-correlated single photon counting and burst illumination laser data can be used for range profiling and target classification. In general, the problem is to analyze the response from a histogram of either photon counts or integrated intensities to assess the number, positions, and amplitudes of the reflected returns from object surfaces. The goal of our work is a complete characterization ...


SimBIL: appearance-based simulation of burst-illumination laser sequences

IET Image Processing, 2008

A novel appearance-based simulator of burst illumination laser sequences, SimBIL, is presented and the sequences it generates are compared with those of a physical model-based simulator that the authors have developed concurrently. SimBIL uses a database of 3D, geometric object models as faceted meshes, and attaches example-based representations of material appearances to each model surface. The representation is based on ...


Example-Based Simulation of Time-Gated Laser Sequences from a Single Video Image

2006 International Conference on Image Processing, 2006

This paper introduces the first ever appearance-based simulator of burst illumination laser sequences from a single, conventional video image of a vehicle. The appearance-based approach allows us to dispose of the very complex physical models needed to achieve realism. The system uses a dictionary of 3-D, geometric object models and a dictionary of intensity-time profile examples. The latter were obtained ...


Semi-active guidance using event driven tracking

14th International Conference on Information Fusion, 2011

This paper proposes the use of an active laser imaging system for semi-active missile guidance. The missile uses an address-event representation seeker, which records the pixel position and the time of arrival of the laser pulses (events). Accurate timing information of the events allows the target to be tracked and generates a closed-loop guidance solution. The paper models an example ...


Spectral bandwidth enhancement and pulse compression in a nanosecond monolithic optical parametric oscillator using chirped quasi-phasematching

2007 European Conference on Lasers and Electro-Optics and the International Quantum Electronics Conference, 2007

Broadband operation is not commonly associated with nanosecond optical parametric oscillators (OPOs), and for most applications, eg. spectroscopy, narrowband operation is the desired outcome. Exceptions are found in applications involving free-space propagation, eg. active ranging, three- dimensional laser terrain-mapping and burst-illumination imaging, which require pulses with energies sufficient to facilitate detection after propagation over distances of hundreds of metres to ...

  • Bayesian Analysis of Lidar Signals with Multiple Returns

    Time-correlated single photon counting and burst illumination laser data can be used for range profiling and target classification. In general, the problem is to analyze the response from a histogram of either photon counts or integrated intensities to assess the number, positions, and amplitudes of the reflected returns from object surfaces. The goal of our work is a complete characterization of the 3D surfaces viewed by the laser imaging system. The authors present a unified theory of pixel processing that is applicable to both approaches based on a Bayesian framework, which allows for careful and thorough treatment of all types of uncertainties associated with the data. We use reversible jump Markov chain Monte Carlo (RJMCMC) techniques to evaluate the posterior distribution of the parameters and to explore spaces with different dimensionality. Further, we use a delayed rejection step to allow the generated Markov chain to mix better through the use of different proposal distributions. The approach is demonstrated on simulated and real data, showing that the return parameters can be estimated to a high degree of accuracy. We also show some practical examples from both near and far-range depth imaging.

  • SimBIL: appearance-based simulation of burst-illumination laser sequences

    A novel appearance-based simulator of burst illumination laser sequences, SimBIL, is presented and the sequences it generates are compared with those of a physical model-based simulator that the authors have developed concurrently. SimBIL uses a database of 3D, geometric object models as faceted meshes, and attaches example-based representations of material appearances to each model surface. The representation is based on examples of intensity-time profiles for a set of orientations and materials. The dimensionality of the large set of profile examples (called a profile eigenspace) is reduced by principal component analysis. Depth and orientation of the model facets are used to simulate time gating, deciding which object parts are imaged for every frame in the sequence. Model orientation and material type are used to index the profile eigenspaces and assign an intensity-time profile to frame pixels. To assess comparatively the practical merit of SimBIL sequences, the authors compare range images reconstructed by a reference algorithm using sequences from SimBIL, from the physics-based simulator, and real BIL sequences.

  • Example-Based Simulation of Time-Gated Laser Sequences from a Single Video Image

    This paper introduces the first ever appearance-based simulator of burst illumination laser sequences from a single, conventional video image of a vehicle. The appearance-based approach allows us to dispose of the very complex physical models needed to achieve realism. The system uses a dictionary of 3-D, geometric object models and a dictionary of intensity-time profile examples. The latter were obtained from real images acquired for a number of different materials and surface orientations. To generate a synthetic time-gated sequence the user provides simply a single, conventional photograph of a vehicle in a desired orientation. The photograph is matched interactively to a database of 3-D geometric models of vehicles, estimating 3-D pose and approximate relative depths at all points. Depths are then used to simulate time-gating, and consequently to decide which object parts are imaged for every depth. Model surface orientation and material are used to index the example dictionary and assign an intensity-time profile to imaged pixels. Results indicate very promising performance.

The missile uses an address-event representation seeker, which records the pixel position and the time of arrival of the laser pulses (events). Accurate timing information of the events allows the target to be tracked and generates a closed-loop guidance solution. The paper models an example engagement, where a missile intercepts an unguided surface-to-surface rocket.

  • Spectral bandwidth enhancement and pulse compression in a nanosecond monolithic optical parametric oscillator using chirped quasi-phasematching

    Broadband operation is not commonly associated with nanosecond optical parametric oscillators (OPOs), and for most applications, eg. spectroscopy, narrowband operation is the desired outcome. Exceptions are found in applications involving free-space propagation, eg. active ranging, three- dimensional laser terrain-mapping and burst-illumination imaging, which require pulses with energies sufficient to facilitate detection after propagation over distances of hundreds of metres to kilometres, and spectral bandwidths wide enough to minimise speckle effects. Broadband operation has previously been applied in femtosecond OPOs using chirped QPM (Arbore et al., 1997) to achieve low threshold and widely tunable operation (Beddard et al., 2000) but, to our knowledge, the application of chirped QPM to nanosecond OPOs has not been widely explored. Free-space imaging can be implemented with few- muJ pulses (Busck and Heiselberg, 2004), and here we describe the performance of a Q-switched OPO designed to produce a broadband 1.55mum output using chirped QPM gratings.
