Obstacle detection using a monocular camera
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2008-05-19)
The objective of this thesis is to develop a general obstacle segmentation algorithm for use on board a ground based unmanned vehicle (GUV). The algorithm processes video data captured by a single monocular camera mounted ...
Localized statistical models in computer vision
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2009-09-14)
Computer vision approximates human vision using computers. Two subsets are explored in this work: image segmentation and visual tracking. Segmentation involves partitioning an image into logical parts, and tracking analyzes ...
Layered Deformotion with Radiance: A Model for Appearance, Segmentation, Registration, and Tracking
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2007-07-09)
This dissertation gives a general model for the estimation of shape (image segmentation), appearance, pose (image registration), and movement (tracking). The model can infer parameters for multiple objects in a dynamically ...
Statistical methods for 2D image segmentation and 3D pose estimation
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2010-10-26)
The field of computer vision focuses on the goal of developing techniques to exploit and extract information from underlying data that may represent images or other multidimensional data. In particular, two well-studied ...
Dynamic curve estimation for visual tracking
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2010-08-03)
This thesis tackles the visual tracking problem as a target contour estimation problem in the face of corrupted measurements. The major aim is to design robust recursive curve filters for accurate contour-based tracking. ...
