A novel video smoke detection method using both color and motion
features is presented. The result of optical flow is assumed to be an approximation of
motion field. Background estimation and color-based decision rule are used to determine
candidate smoke regions. The Lucas Kanade optical flow algorithm is proposed
to calculate the optical flow of candidate regions. And the motion features are calculated
from the optical flow results and use to differentiate smoke from some other
Design for assembly is a process by which products are designed with ease of assembly in mind. If a product contains fewer parts it will take less time to assemble, thereby reducing assembly costs. In addition, if the parts are provided with features which make it easier to grasp, move, orient and insert them, this will also reduce assembly time and assembly costs. The reduction of the number of parts in an assembly has the added benefit of generally reducing the total cost of parts in the assembly. This is usually where the major cost benefits of the application of...
This book describes high-speed precision motion control technologies which
are developed and applied to hard disk drives (HDDs). The first feature of
this book is that all the editors and the authors are engineers and professors
who are directly engaged in the study and development of HDD servo control.
Each author describes the control technologies that he developed, and most of
these technologies have already been successfully applied to mass production
The applications of underwater vehicles have shown a dramatic increase in recent years,
such as, mines clearing operation, feature tracking, cable or pipeline tracking and deep
ocean exploration. According to different applications, the mechanical and electrical
configuration and shape of an underwater vehicle are different. For instance, manipulators
are necessary when doing mines clearing operation or some other tasks which need to deal

In our mobile work culture, we see corporate staff, from executive to individual contributor, working
beyond the boundaries of the traditional office environment. The concept of working “any time and
anywhere” has become popular. To support this concept, many organizations are adopting mobile
solutions. As employees use these solutions, their expectations are increasing—employees want not only
access to information, but full participation in business from any location whenever it is required.

Image formation, feature detection and matching, segmentation, feature-based alignment, structure from motion is the main content of the book "Computer vision algorithms and applications". Invite you to consult the detailed content lectures to capture details.
Another of the initial ideas had the welcome mat
track the motion of people across it and respond to
this in some way. This was ﬁrst tried using amat with
electric-ﬁeld-sensing electrodes and a projected im-
age that followed the path of the person walking
across it. Issues of robustness for this tracking
method caused this idea to be dropped as well.
This five-step guide details the recommended process for building software-defined test systems from
start to finish. It presents these test engineering best practices in a practical and reusable manner and
features specific examples used by industry-leading test engineering teams. It also references a scalable,
software-defined production test system developed by the NI test engineering team for testing I/O
modules for the NI CompactRIO platform, which is shown in Figure 3.
Phosphoglucosamine mutase (PNGM) is a bacterial enzyme that partici-pates in the peptidoglycan biosynthetic pathway. Recent crystal structures
of PNGM from two bacterial pathogens,Bacillus anthracisandFrancisella
tularensis, have revealed key structural features of this enzyme for the first
Reproducing Timeline Tweens with ActionScript
The last thing we want to mention in this chapter is a companion website post about a feature that’s a bit out of the ordinary. As such, we intend it to be an additional resource for your continued study outside this book. In addition to scripting motion solely with code, it’s also possible to rebuild a Flash Professional timeline motion tween using ActionScript.

iPhone Device Overview
THIS CHAPTER WILL EXPLORE the iPhone device with an emphasis on the technologies and hardware that define the iPhone user experience, such as the multi-touch display, motion sensors, and location information. In addition to explaining what’s possible with the device, this chapter will provide best practices based on recognized usability principles and Apple’s iPhone Human Interface Guidelines.
MPEG-7 will deﬁne a certain set of descriptors to describe these features. For example, the color histogram can be a very suitable descriptor for color characteristics of an image, and motion vectors (commonly available in compressed video bitstreams) form a useful descriptor for motion characteristics of a video clip. MPEG-7 also uses the concept of description scheme (DS), which means a framework that deﬁnes the descriptors and their relationships. Hence, the descriptors are the basis of a description scheme. Description then implies an instantiation of a description scheme.
Multi-robot systems (MRS) are becoming one of the most important areas
of research in Robotics, due to the challenging nature of the involved
research and to the multiple potential applications to areas such as
autonomous sensor networks, building surveillance, transportation of large
objects, air and underwater pollution monitoring, forest fire detection,
transportation systems, or search and rescue after large-scale disasters.
You can easily create complex motion with articulations—joints between linked objects—with the feature called inverse kinematics. You can also morph—create organic changes in shapes—with shape tweens.

NOTE iPhone 4 has a three-axis gyroscope. Paired with the accelerometer, it makes the iPhone capable of advanced motion sensing, such as user acceleration, angular velocity, and rotation rate.
One of the most widely used sensors is the accelerometer, also known as a “motion” sensor. The accelerometer can detect the iPhone’s orientation and adjust the display accordingly.
Object tracking consists in estimation of trajectory of moving objects in the sequence of images. Automation of the computer object tracking is a difficult task. Dynamics of multiple parameters changes representing features and motion of the objects, and temporary partial or full occlusion of the tracked objects have to be considered. This monograph presents the development of object tracking algorithms, methods and systems.
