Next Generation Face Tracking Technology Using AAM Techniques
This paper realizes an investigation of the active appearance model (AAM) techniques, with particular emphasis on problems related to the implementation of AAM in realtime face tracking applications for embedded systems. ...
Determining Unique Fingerprint Features for Biometric Encoding of Data
A novel approach to determining unique fingerprint features with high repeatability is described. The techniques described are particularly suitable for CE applications and devices employing inexpensive capacitative ...
Time and timing issues within the wireless application home environment
Separating Directional Lighting Variability in Statistical Face Modelling Based on Texture Space Decomposition
In this paper we propose a simple method for decomposing the linear texture space of a facial appearance model into two linear subspaces, one for inter-individual variability and another for variations caused by directional ...
Home networking middleware infrastructure for improved audio/video appliance functionality and interoperability
A software architecture is described which significantly improves the accessability of multiple home appliances on a heterogeneous home network. Methods for aggregating devices into virtual clusters on a local middleware ...
Fast A/V channel switching on a wireless home network
A method of enabling fast switching between multimedia streams on an 802.11g network is described. This technique is particularly useful for A/V home network applications where it is desirable to simulate the fast channel ...
Rapid prototyping of networked A/V CE appliances
In this paper the design and rapid prototyping of networked A/V CE appliances is described. Practical implementations of three types of appliance are described: (i) a streaming A/V server; (ii) a streaming A/V client device ...
Automatic indexing of consumer image collections using person recognition techniques
An evaluation of person recognition technologies for use in an automatic cataloging tool for consumer image collections is presented. Prototype implementations of the automatic cataloging tool and user search tools are ...
Biometrically auditable public key infrastructure technology for secure multimedia content
A system for signing and tracing the use of digital content based on biometrically generated key-pairs is described. The system is designed to protect the fair use rights of end-users and can be readily incorporated into ...
An FPGA-based stereoscopic camera - electronic design tools and techniques
Electronic design tools and techniques for the implementation of a stereoscopic camera based on an FPGA (Field Programmable Gate Array) are presented. The stages of an IPP (Image Processing Pipeline) are presented together ...
