Abstract:

The Laboratory for Image and Signal Analysis conducts a broad program of research in computer vision, image processing and architectures for image processing. During the period of this report, several projects were completed including those on positioning and tracking of objects moving in space, parallel image processing, 3-D representation and recognition from range data and a normalized quadtree representation. A new approach to the problem of tracking of objects in space is formulated which is significantly simpler and robust in solution. Previously available quadtree description of objects is modified to develop a new description called normalized quadtree representation. This representation is found to be compact as well as useful recognition of objects. A methodology for analysis of architectures for parallel image processing is proposed. Our research advocates an application-drive approach for using parallel architectures for image processing. Keywords include Parallel Image Processing Motion Parameters 3-D Representation and Recognition from Range Data.
