Up-to-date, technically accurate coverage of essential topics in image and video processing This is the first book to combine image and video processing with a practical MATLABĀ®-oriented approach in order to demonstrate the most important image and video techniques and algorithms. Utilizing minimal math, the contents are presented in a clear, objective manner, emphasizing and encouraging experimentation. The book has been... more...

This brief focuses on two main problems in the domain of optical flow and trajectory estimation: (i) The problem of finding convex optimization methods to apply sparsity to optical flow; and (ii) The problem of how to extend sparsity to improve trajectories in a computationally tractable way. Beginning with a review of optical flow fundamentals, it discusses the commonly used flow estimation strategies... more...

This SpringerBrief provides an overview of contemporary innovative technologies and discusses their impact on our daily lives. Written from a technical perspective, and yet using language and terminology accessible to non-experts, it describes the technologies, the key players in each area, the most popular apps and services (and their pros and cons), as well as relevant usage statistics. It is targeted at a... more...

This SpringerBrief presents the fundamentals of driver drowsiness detection systems, provides examples of existing products, and offers guides for practitioners interested in developing their own solutions to the problem. Driver drowsiness causes approximately 7% of all road accidents and up to 18% of fatal collisions. Proactive systems that are capable of preventing the loss of lives combine techniques, methods, and algorithms from many fields of... more...

Technology has spurred the growth of huge image and video libraries, many growing into the hundreds of terabytes. As a result there is a great demand among organizations for the design of databases that can effectively support the storage, search, retrieval, and transmission of video data. Engineers and researchers in the field demand a comprehensive reference that will help them design and implement the most complex video database projects. Handbook... more...

Content-Based Image And Video Retrieval addresses the basic concepts and techniques for designing content-based image and video retrieval systems. It also discusses a variety of design choices for the key components of these systems. This book gives a comprehensive survey of the content-based image retrieval systems, including several content-based video retrieval systems. The survey includes both research and commercial content-based retrieval... more...
