In hyperspectral imaging, the measured spectra are affected by the materials and objects that reside within or in close vicinity of the pixel which is being imaged. The detection of a material or object of interest in an imaged region is a common problem in various application areas. In this work, an experimental study is performed for target detection in hyperspectral images, supported by a performance comparison.


3D Extended Object Tracking Using Recursive Gaussian Processes
Kumru, Murat; Özkan, Emre (2018-07-10)
In this study, we consider the challenging task of tracking dynamic 3D objects with unknown shapes by using sparse point cloud measurements gathered from the surface of the objects. We propose a Gaussian process based algorithm that is capable of tracking the dynamic behavior of the object and learn its shape in 3D simultaneously. Our solution does not require any parametric model assumption for the unknown shape. The shape of the objects is learned online via a Gaussian process. The proposed method can joi...
Hyperspectral Superpixel Extraction Using Boundary Updates Based on Optimal Spectral Similarity Metric
Çalışkan, Akın; Koz, Alper; Alatan, Abdullah Aydın (2015-07-31)
The high spectral resolution of hyperspectral images (HSI) requires a heavy processing load. Assigning each pixel to a group in the image, which is called superpixel, and processing the superpixels instead of the pixels is resorted as a means to overcome this challenge in the hyperspectral literature. In this paper, we propose an algorithm to segment a hyperspectral image into superpixels by means of iteratively updating the boundary pixels of superpixels. We first explore the optimal similarity metric for ...
Information Theoretic SAR Boundary Detection with User Interaction
Demirkesen, Can; Leloğlu, Uğur Murat (2015-09-24)
Detection of region boundaries is a very challenging task especially in the presence of noise or speckle as in synthetic aperture radar images. In this work, we propose a user interaction based boundary detection technique which makes use of B-splines and well-known powerful tools of information theory such as the Kullback-Leibler divergence (KLD) and Bhattacharyya distance. The proposed architecture consists of the following four main steps: (1) The user selects points inside and outside of a region. (2) P...
3D scanning Hall probe microscopy with 700 nm resolution
DEDE, MUNIR; AKRAM, RİZWAN; Oral, Ahmet (2016-10-31)
In this report, we present a three dimensional (3D) imaging of magnetic field vector (B) over right arrow (x,y,z) emanating from the magnetic material surfaces using a scanning Hall probe microscopy (3D-SHPM) down to a 700 nm spatial resolution. The Hall probe is used to measure B-z(x,y) on the specimen surface at different heights with the step size of Delta z = 250 nm, as we move away from the surface in z direction, until the field decays to zero. These set of images are then used to get partial derivati...
Visual detection and tracking of moving objects
Ergezer, Hamza; Leblebicioğlu, Mehmet Kemal (2007-06-13)
In this paper, primary steps of a visual surveillance system are presented: moving object detection and tracking of these moving objects. Running average method has been used to detect the moving objects in the video, which is taken from a static camera. Tracking of foreground objects has been realized by using a Kalman filter. After background subtraction, morphological operators are used to remove noises detected as foreground. Active contour models (snakes) are the segmentation tools for the extracted fo...
