A Computer Vision Application To Accurately Estimate Object Distance, Kayton B. Parekh 2010 Macalester College

A Computer Vision Application To Accurately Estimate Object Distance, Kayton B. Parekh

Mathematics, Statistics, and Computer Science Honors Projects

Scientists have been working to create robots that perform manual work for years. However, creating machines that can navigate themselves and respond to their environment has proven to be difficult. One integral task to such research is to estimate the position of objects in the robot's visual field.

In this project we examine an implementation of computer vision depth perception. Our application uses color-based object tracking combined with model-based pose estimation to estimate the depth of specific objects in the view of our Pioneer 2 and Power Wheels robots. We use the Camshift algorithm for color-based object tracking, which ...


Rapport: Semantic-Sensitive Namespace Management In Large-Scale File Systems, Yu Hua, Hong Jiang, Yifeng Zhu, Dan Feng 2010 Huazhong Univ. of Sci. & Tech.

Rapport: Semantic-Sensitive Namespace Management In Large-Scale File Systems, Yu Hua, Hong Jiang, Yifeng Zhu, Dan Feng

CSE Technical reports

Explosive growth in volume and complexity of data exacerbates the key challenge to effectively and efficiently manage data in a way that fundamentally improves the ease and efficacy of their use. Existing large-scale file systems rely on hierarchically structured namespace that leads to severe performance bottlenecks and renders it impossible to support real-time queries on multi-dimensional attributes. This paper proposes a novel semantic-sensitive scheme, called Rapport, to provide dynamic and adaptive namespace management and support complex queries. The basic idea is to build files’ namespace by utilizing their semantic correlation and exploiting dynamic evolution of attributes to support namespace management ...


Channel Characterization For Wireless Underground Sensor Networks, Agnelo R. Silva 2010 University of Nebraska at Lincoln

Channel Characterization For Wireless Underground Sensor Networks, Agnelo R. Silva

Computer Science and Engineering: Theses, Dissertations, and Student Research

Wireless Underground Sensor Networks (WUSNs) are natural extensions of the established Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) phenomenon and consist of sensors buried underground which communicate through soil. WUSNs have the potential to impact a wide variety of applications including precision agriculture, environmental monitoring, border patrol, and infrastructure monitoring. The main difference between WUSNs and traditional wireless networks is the communication medium. However, a comprehensive wireless underground channel model for WUSNs has not been developed so far. In this thesis, the Soil Subsurface Wireless Communication (SSWC) channel model is developed based on an extensive empirical study in a large agriculture field. The ...


Modeling The Dynamics Of Network Technology Adoption And The Role Of Converters, Soumya Sen, Youngmi Jin, Roch A. Guérin, Kartik Hosanagar 2010 University of Pennsylvania

Modeling The Dynamics Of Network Technology Adoption And The Role Of Converters, Soumya Sen, Youngmi Jin, Roch A. Guérin, Kartik Hosanagar

Departmental Papers (ESE)

New network technologies constantly seek to displace incumbents. Their success depends on technological superiority, the size of the incumbent’s installed base, users’ adoption behaviors, and various other factors. The goal of this paper is to develop an understanding of competition between network technologies, and identify the extent to which different factors, in particular converters (a.k.a. gateways), affect the outcome. Converters can help entrants overcome the influence of the incumbent’s installed base by enabling cross-technology interoperability. However, they have development, deployment, and operations costs, and can introduce performance degradations and functionality limitations, so that if, when, why ...


Detecting Mutually-Salient Landmark Pairs With Mrf Regularization, Yangming Ou, Ahmed Besbes, Michel Bilello, Mohamed Mansour, Christos Davatzikos, Nikos Paragios 2010 University of Pennsylvania

Detecting Mutually-Salient Landmark Pairs With Mrf Regularization, Yangming Ou, Ahmed Besbes, Michel Bilello, Mohamed Mansour, Christos Davatzikos, Nikos Paragios

Departmental Papers (BE)

In this paper, we present a framework for extracting mutually-salient landmark pairs for registration. Traditional methods detect landmarks one-by-one and separately in two images. Therefore, the detected landmarks might inherit low discriminability and are not necessarily good for matching. In contrast, our method detects landmarks pair-by-pair across images, and those pairs are required to be mutually-salient, i.e., uniquely corresponding to each other. The second merit of our framework is that, instead of finding individually optimal correspondence, which is a local approach and could cause self-intersection of the resultant deformation, our framework adopts a Markov-random-field (MRF)-based spatial arrangement to ...

Cs 466/666: Introduction To Formal Languages, Guozhu Dong 2010 Wright State University - Main Campus

Cs 466/666: Introduction To Formal Languages, Guozhu Dong

Computer Science & Engineering Syllabi

CS 466/666 is an introduction to formal language and automata theory. In this course we will examine methods for defining syntax of languages and recognizing patterns: the syntax of languages can be defined using grammars and patterns accepted by finite state machines. Along with presenting the fundamentals of these tow topics, the course will develop and investigate the relationships between language definition and pattern recognition. The text will be the third edition of languages and Machines: An Introduction to the Theory of Computer Sciences, by Thomas Sudkamp.
