Scale invariant representation of 2 5D data

Halıcı, Uğur
In this paper, a scale and orientation invariant feature representation for 2.5D objects is introduced, which may be used to classify, detect and recognize objects even under the cases of cluttering and/or occlusion. With this representation a 2.5D object is defined by an attributed graph structure, in which the nodes are the pit and peak regions on the surface. The attributes of the graph are the scales, positions and the normals of these pits and peaks. In order to detect these regions a "peakness" (or pitness) measure is defined based on Gaussian curvature calculation, which is performed at various scales on the surface. Finally a "position vs. scale" feature volume is obtained and the graph nodes are extracted from this feature space by volume segmentation techniques.


Rescoring detections based on contextual scores in object detection
Zorlu, Ersan Vural; Akbaş, Emre; Department of Computer Engineering (2019)
To detect objects in an image, current state-of-the-art object detectors firstly definecandidate object locations, and then classify each of them into one of the predefinedcategories or as background. They do so by using the visual features extracted locallyfrom the candidate locations; omitting the rich contextual information embedded inthe whole image. Contextual information can be utilized to complement the informa-tion extracted locally and thereby to improve object detection accuracy. Researchershave p...
Representation Learning for Contextual Object and Region Detection in Remote Sensing
Firat, Orhan; Can, Gulcan; Yarman Vural, Fatoş Tunay (2014-08-28)
The performance of object recognition and classification on remote sensing imagery is highly dependent on the quality of extracted features, amount of labelled data and the priors defined for contextual models. In this study, we examine the representation learning opportunities for remote sensing. First we attacked localization of contextual cues for complex object detection using disentangling factors learnt from a small amount of labelled data. The complex object, which consists of several sub-parts is fu...
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...
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...
Similarity matrix framework for data from union of subspaces
Aldroubi, Akram; Sekmen, Ali; Koku, Ahmet Buğra; Cakmak, Ahmet Faruk (2018-09-01)
This paper presents a framework for finding similarity matrices for the segmentation of data W = [w(1)...w(N)] subset of R-D drawn from a union U = boolean OR(M)(i=1) S-i, of independent subspaces {S-i}(i=1)(M), of dimensions {d(i)}(i=1)(M). It is shown that any factorization of W = BP, where columns of B form a basis for data W and they also come from U, can be used to produce a similarity matrix Xi w. In other words, Xi w(i, j) not equal 0, when the columns w(i) and w(j) of W come from the same subspace, ...
