  • Digital mammographic image analysis and data compression

    This paper proposes a digital mammogram segmentation method for mammographic images, which is based on the gradient detection between breast tissue and non-tissue area. Detection of tissue edge in medical images is closely related to the correctness of image segmentation. In this paper, we focus on digital mammograms and develop an edge detection method to extract breast tissue against background with noise and/or random artifacts, as a preprocess of image compression. The results show that the developed method performs a precise recovery of boundary between breast tissue and non-tissue area, which is then removed for increasing compression rate. Therefore, problems of image transmission efficiency and data storage amount can be greatly improved. The compression rate is promoted from 3:1 to 5-6:1 by a nonlossy compression method.

  • Real time seismic signal processing using the ARMA model coefficients and an intelligent monitoring system

    A new method has been presented for real time seismic signal processing. A fuzzy model is extracted for the background noise dynamics, using the ARMA model coefficients. A fuzzy rule base has been generated, and a fuzzy inference engine has been used to detect the variations in the nature of the background noise. The conventional envelope detection algorithm for on-set estimation, has been affected by the fuzzy inference engine to make it more flexible and robust, in the presence of a large amount of background noise. The fuzzy inference engine also serves as a proper indicator for sudden variations in the nature of the background noise. If the detected variation is due to the first arrival phase of a seismic event, then a higher order ARMA model is derived and its coefficients are used as the inputs to a trained neural network, for seismic classification. The experimental results are promising and there are some remarkable advantages over the previous methods.

  • A note on the classification error of an SVM in one dimension

    There are many algorithms available for detecting noise corrupted signals in background clutter. In cases where the exact statistics of the noise and clutter are unknown, the optimal detector may be estimated from a set of samples of each. One method for doing this is the support vector machine (SVM), which has a detection performance that is dependent on some regularisation parameter C, and cannot be determined a-priori. The standard method of choosing C is by trying values and choosing the one which minimises the detection error on a cross-validation set. It is often assumed that as the size of the training set increases, the resulting discriminant will give the best possible detection rate on an independent test set. This paper investigates two simple 1D examples: uniform and normal distributions. An example is provided where the optimum detection rate cannot be achieved by an SVM regardless of the C chosen value.

  • Detection of spot target in infrared clutter with morphological filter

    The morphological filters are a class of nonlinear signal processing algorithms, which have been applied extensively to computer vision, image processing, and more recently target detection. This paper presents a morphology-based algorithm for spot target detection in IR clutter. The algorithm utilizes a prior knowledge of target size to suppress background clutter and remove noise. The experimental results show that the approach can detect spot target in the presence of clutter for low signal-to-noise ratio (SNR). The probability of detection and false alarm is presented as ROC curves for sky, ground and sea clutter background.

  • License plate location based on direction and edge information

    License plate recognition systems have been used extensively for many applications. In order to recognize a license plate efficiently, however, the location of the license plate must be detected in the first place. In our method, the car image first is divided into a set of 5×5 non-overlapping block and a local direction is defined for each block. The M×N car image is converted to a direction image and a vertical edges image of size (M×N)/25. It reduces much processing time. The direction and the vertical edges of block are calculated by using Sobel operator. We remove most of the background and noise regions in the direction and vertical edges image by an effective algorithm and segment the plate out from the original car image. Experimental results demonstrate the great robustness and efficiency of the method.

  • A New Simple Adaptive Noise Cancellation Scheme Based On ALE and NLMS Filter

    Background noise is usually an important factor that affects speech recognition performance and many other applications. In this paper, background noise (wideband noise and sinusoidal noise) can be significantly suppressed using the proposed adaptive noise cancellation scheme based on adaptive line enhancer (ALE) and normalized least mean square (NLMS) filters. The proposed scheme is comprised of two stages. The first stage uses an ALE filters, which are used to reduce sinusoidal noise from the primary and reference input signals, whereas the wideband noise is reduced using NLMS adaptive filter in the second stage. To demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed scheme ,it is compared to the traditional adaptive noise cancellation scheme. The good performance of the proposed scheme have been verified via computer simulations in noisy and reverberant environment.

  • The feature extraction of brain evoked potential based on wavelet transformation

    The brain evoked potentials (BEP) are related directly to series of diseases and physical states. It is helpful to prevent and diagnose the brain diseases by analyzing evoked potentials. The traditional averaged method can show the shape of evoked potentials in the rough but losses some important components. At the same time, the plus number is so many that it will increase the pain of the testee. Wavelet transformation is a rising technology in signal processing which has the feature of multi-resolution analysis. In this paper, we use wavelet transformation for the feature extraction of brain evoked potential and compare with the traditional averaged method. We can see that the evoked potential can be identified only with few plus signals by wavelet transformation technology and the wave of the signal is very smooth which not only saves the useful signal well but also rejects almost all the background noises. Experiments show that the wavelet transformation has good efficiency in the feature extraction of the BEP which has upper application value in the clinic.

  • Comparison study of TFA algorithms for dispersed RF signals in a noisy environment

    Time frequency analysis is used to study RF chirps, transcribed in ionospheric radio science experiments. To date the short time fourier transform has been the algorithm of choice, but other distributions are attractive if improved combinations of execution speed, resolution, and cross-term resistance can be found. The authors have evaluated several popular energy distributions in terms of these attributes, finding each to have desirable features, but none uniquely preferable. As yet untreated are the various linear algorithms, which show promise for improved performance.<<ETX>>

  • A variable step-size normalized sign algorithm for acoustic echo cancelation

    A variable step size normalized sign algorithm (VSS-NSA) is proposed, for acoustic echo cancelation, which adjusts its step size automatically by matching the L<sub>1</sub> norm of the a posteriori error to that of the background noise plus near-end signal. Simulation results show that the new algorithm combined with double-talk detection outperforms the dual sign algorithm (DSA) and the normalized triple-state sign algorithm (NTSSA) in terms of convergence rate and stability.

  • Prewhitening of background brain activity via autoregressive modeling

    The detection of steady-state visual evoked potentials (SSVEP) is important in some clinical audiometry and ophthalmology applications. The SSVEPs are usually concealed in the ongoing background electroencephalogram (EEG) generated in the brain. The EEG is highly colored with unknown covariance matrix. In this paper we model the background noise using an autoregressive (AR) model whose parameters are estimated on line, on a block by block basis. The problem of estimating the AR parameters in the presence of the signal and its effect on the bias of the parameter estimates is addressed. We show that in the case of a low level sinusoidal signal, the parameters of the AR model are only slightly perturbed and an accurate estimate of the parameters can be found using the Yule-Walker equations.
