RGBD Data Based Pose Estimation Why Sensor Fusion

Alatan, Abdullah Aydın
Performing high accurate pose estimation has been an attractive research area in the field of computer vision; hence, there are a plenty of algorithms proposed for this purpose. Starting with RGB or gray scale image data, methods utilizing data from 3D sensors, such as Time of Flight (TOF) or laser range finder, and later those based on RGBD data have emerged chronologically. Algorithms that exploit image data mainly rely on minimization of image plane error, i.e. the reprojection error. On the other hand, methods utilizing 3D measurements from depth sensors estimate object pose in order to minimize the Euclidean distance between these measurements. However, although errors in associated domains can be minimized effectively by such methods, the resultant pose estimates may not be of sufficient accuracy, when the dynamics of the object motion is ignored. At this point, the proposed 3D rigid pose estimation algorithm fuses measurements from vision (RGB) and depth sensors in a probabilistic manner using Extended Kalman Filter (EKF). It is shown that such a procedure increases pose estimation performance significantly compared to single sensor approaches.


Motion estimation using complex discrete wavelet transform
Sarı, Hüseyin; Severcan, Mete; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2003)
The estimation of optical flow has become a vital research field in image sequence analysis especially in past two decades, which found applications in many fields such as stereo optics, video compression, robotics and computer vision. In this thesis, the complex wavelet based algorithm for the estimation of optical flow developed by Magarey and Kingsbury is implemented and investigated. The algorithm is based on a complex version of the discrete wavelet transform (CDWT), which analyzes an image through blo...
Visual Saliency Estimation via Attribute Based Classifiers and Conditional Random Field
Demirel, Berkan; Cinbiş, Ramazan Gökberk; İKİZLER CİNBİŞ, NAZLI (2016-05-19)
Visual Saliency Estimation is a computer vision problem that aims to find the regions of interest that are frequently in eye focus in a scene or an image. Since most computer vision problems require discarding irrelevant regions in a scene, visual saliency estimation can be used as a preprocessing step in such problems. In this work, we propose a method to solve top-down saliency estimation problem using Attribute Based Classifiers and Conditional Random Fields (CRF). Experimental results show that attribut...

Design and development of a game based eye training program for children with low vision
Dönmez, Mehmet; Çağıltay, Kürşat; Department of Computer Education and Instructional Technology (2020)
This study explores the design principles of eye movement-based computer game applications as training material for children with low vision to enhance their vision skills. It aims to provide children with interactive materials to improve their vision. For the study, design-based research was employed in four phases, namely analysis, development, evaluation and testing, and documentation and reflection. In the analysis phase, a focus group meeting and interviews were conducted with experts from the field of...
Data-driven image captioning via salient region discovery
Kilickaya, Mert; Akkuş, Burak Kerim; Çakıcı, Ruket; Erdem, Aykut; Erdem, Erkut; İKİZLER CİNBİŞ, NAZLI (Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), 2017-09-01)
n the past few years, automatically generating descriptions for images has attracted a lot of attention in computer vision and natural language processing research. Among the existing approaches, data-driven methods have been proven to be highly effective. These methods compare the given image against a large set of training images to determine a set of relevant images, then generate a description using the associated captions. In this study, the authors propose to integrate an object-based semantic image r...
