Eigenvalue based corner detection is known to be effective in detecting corners of objects in noise. In this paper, a comer detection technique based on including the orientation and the angle of the comer in addition to its eigenvalue is introduced. It is shown that both orientation and comer information improve the detectability of corners. Moreover, comers that have been selected via the new technique are more likely to be detected in subsequent frames and therefore improve the performance of an object tracker. This modification only adds a minor computational load to our tracking scheme. Real and synthetic images are used to evaluate the detection performance as well as their effect on tracking.

A CIRCLE DETECTION APPROACH BASED ON RADON TRANSFORM
Okman, O. Erman; Akar, Gözde (2013-05-31)
In this paper a novel fast circle detection algorithm is proposed which depends on the spatial properties of the connected components on the image. Two 1-D transforms of each connected component is obtained by taking the Radon Transform of the image for two different directions, which are in fact the integrations of the image through horizontal and vertical directions. Circles are detected using the similarities of detected peaks on the transformed functions and the characteristics of the values in between ...
IMPROVING PROPOSAL-BASED OBJECT DETECTION USING CONVOLUTIONAL CONTEXT FEATURES
Kaya, Emre Can; Alatan, Abdullah Aydın (2018-10-10)
A novel extension to proposal-based detection is proposed in order to learn convolutional context features for determining boundaries of objects better. Objects and their context are aimed to be learned through parallel convolutional stages. The resulting object and context feature maps are combined in such a way that they preserve their spatial relationship. The proposed algorithm is trained and evaluated on PASCAL VOC 2007 detection benchmark dataset and yielded improvements in performance over baseline, ...
A Computationally Efficient Appearance-Based Algorithm for Geospatial Object Detection
Arslan, Duygu; Alatan, Abdullah Aydın (2012-04-27)
A computationally efficient appearance-based algorithm for geospatial object detection is presented and evaluated specifically for aircraft detection from satellite imagery. An aircraft operator exploiting the edge information via gray level differences between the aircraft and its background is constructed with Haar-like polygon regions by using the shape information of the aircraft as an invariant. Fast evaluation of the aircraft operator is achieved by means of integral image. Rotated integral images are...
On event signal reconstruction in wireless sensor networks
Atakan, Baris; Akan, Oezguer B. (2007-05-18)
In Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN), the effective detection and reconstruction of the event signal is mainly based on the regulation of sampling and communication parameters used by the sensor nodes. The aim of this paper is to understand the effect of these parameters on the reconstruction performance of event signal in WSN. Theoretical analysis and results show that with proper selection of sampling and communication parameters, the event signal can be satisfactorily reconstructed at the sink. Furthermore,...
A tracker-aware detector threshold optimization formulation for tracking maneuvering targets in clutter
Aslan, Murat Samil; Saranlı, Afşar (Elsevier BV, 2011-09-01)
In this paper, we consider a tracker-aware radar detector threshold optimization formulation for tracking maneuvering targets in clutter. The formulation results in an online method with improved transient performance. In our earlier works, the problem was considered in the context of the probabilistic data association filter (PDAF) for non-maneuvering targets. In the present study, we extend the ideas in the PDAF formulation to the multiple model (MM) filtering structures which use PDAFs as modules. Althou...
