In this thesis, a novel method for computing disparity maps from a multi-modal stereo-vision system composed of an infrared-visible camera pair is introduced. The method uses mutual information as the basic similarity measure where a segmentation based adaptive windowing mechanism is proposed along with a novel mutual information computation surface for greatly enhancing the results. Besides, the method incorporates joint prior probabilities when computing the cost matrix in addition to negative mutual information measures. A novel adaptive cost aggregation method is also proposed using computed cost confidences and resulting minimum cost disparities that are confident enough are fitted planes in segments. The segments are refined by iteratively splitting and merging according to the fitted confident disparities that helps to reduce the dependence of the disparity computation to the initial segmentation. Finally, all the steps are repeated iteratively where more accurate joint probabilities are calculated by sing previous iteration’s disparity map. Two multi-modal stereo image datasets are generated for evaluating the method and the state of the art methods confronted in literature; the synthetically altered image pairs from the Middlebury Stereo Evaluation Dataset, and our own dataset of Kinect Device infrared- visible camera image pairs, which can function as a benchmark for multi-modal stereo-vision methods. On these datasets, it is presented that (i) the proposed method improves the quality of existing MI formulation, (ii) the proposed method outperforms state of the art methods in literature, and (iii) the proposed method can provide depth comparable to the quality of Kinect depth data.

Yaman, Mustafa; Kalkan, Sinan (2013-05-23)
This paper proposes a method for computing disparity maps from a multimodal stereovision system composed of an infrared and a visible camera pair. The method uses mutual information (MI) as the basic similarity measure where a segmentation-based adaptive windowing mechanism is proposed for greatly enhancing the results. On several datasets, we show that (i) our proposal improves the quality of existing MI formulation, and (ii) our method can provide depth comparable to the quality of Kinect depth data.
Linear Separability Analysis for Stacked Generalization Architecture
Ozay, Mete; Vural, Fatos T. Yarman (2009-04-11)
Stacked Generalization algorithm aims to increase the individual classification performances of the classifiers by combining the information obtained from various classifiers in a multilayer architecture by either linear or nonlinear techniques. Performance of the algorithm varies depending on the application domains and the space analyses that affect the classification performances could riot be applied successfully.
An iterative adaptive multi-modal stereo-vision method using mutual information
Yaman, Mustafa; Kalkan, Sinan (2015-01-01)
We propose a method for computing disparity maps from a multi-modal stereo-vision system composed of an infrared-visible camera pair. The method uses mutual information (MI) as the basic similarity measure where a segment-based adaptive windowing mechanism is proposed along with a novel MI computation surface with joint prior probabilities incorporated. The computed cost confidences are aggregated using a novel adaptive cost aggregation method, and the resultant minimum cost disparities in segments are plan...
Efficient Computation of Green's Functions for Multilayer Media in the Context of 5G Applications
Mittra, Raj; Özgün, Özlem; Li, Chao; Kuzuoğlu, Mustafa (2021-03-22)
This paper presents a novel method for effective computation of Sommerfeld integrals which arise in problems involving antennas or scatterers embedded in planar multilayered media. Sommerfeld integrals that need to be computed in the evaluation of spatial-domain Green's functions are often highly oscillatory and slowly decaying. For this reason, standard numerical integration methods are not efficient for such integrals, especially at millimeter waves. The main motivation of the proposed method is to comput...
