Direct gray scale ridge reconstruction in fingerprint images

Domeniconi, C

An original technique, based on ridge point detection directly from gray scale fingerprint images, is proposed. Our method avoids serious problems that algorithms which perform binarization of fingerprint images have. Each step can be easily hardware implemented, allowing a relevant speed up of the whole process.

An automatic geo-spatial object recognition algorithm for high resolution satellite images
Ergul, Mustafa; Alatan, Abdullah Aydın (2013-09-26)
This paper proposes a novel automatic geo-spatial object recognition algorithm for high resolution satellite imaging. The proposed algorithm consists of two main steps; a hypothesis generation step with a local feature-based algorithm and a verification step with a shape-based approach. In the hypothesis generation step, a set of hypothesis for possible object locations is generated, aiming lower missed detections and higher false-positives by using a Bag of Visual Words type approach. In the verification s...
Automated building detection from satellite images by using shadow information as an object invariant
Yüksel, Barış; Yarman Vural, Fatoş Tunay; Department of Computer Engineering (2012)
Apart from classical pattern recognition techniques applied for automated building detection in satellite images, a robust building detection methodology is proposed, where self-supervision data can be automatically extracted from the image by using shadow and its direction as an invariant for building object. In this methodology; first the vegetation, water and shadow regions are detected from a given satellite image and local directional fuzzy landscapes representing the existence of building are generate...
Robust Automatic Target Recognition in FLIR imagery
Soyman, Yusuf (2012-04-24)
In this paper, a robust automatic target recognition algorithm in FLIR imagery is proposed. Target is first segmented out from the background using wavelet transform. Segmentation process is accomplished by parametric Gabor wavelet transformation. Invariant features that belong to the target, which is segmented out from the background, are then extracted via moments. Higher-order moments, while providing better quality for identifying the image, are more sensitive to noise. A trade-off study is then perform...
Deep joint deinterlacing and denoising for single shot dual-ISO HDR reconstruction
Çoğalan, Uğur; Akyüz, Ahmet Oğuz; Department of Computer Engineering (2019)
HDR (High Dynamic Range) images have traditionally been obtained by merging multiple exposures each captured with a different exposure time. However, this approach entails longer capture times and necessitates deghosting if the captured scene contains moving objects. With the advent of modern camera sensors that can perform per-pixel exposure modulation, it is now possible to capture all of the required exposures within a single shot. The new challenge then becomes how to best combine different pixels with ...
A novel music algorithm based electromagnetic target recognition method in resonance region for the classification of single and multiple targets
Seçmen, Mustafa; Sayan, Gönül; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2008)
This thesis presents a novel aspect and polarization invariant electromagnetic target recognition technique in resonance region based on use of MUSIC algorithm for the extraction of natural-resonance related target features. In the suggested method, the feature patterns called “MUSIC Spectrum Matrices (MSMs)” are constructed for each candidate target at each reference aspect angle using targets’ scattered data at different late-time intervals. These individual MSMs correspond to maps of targets’ natural-res...
