Qualitative and structural analysis of video sequences.
This thesis analyses videos in two distinct ways so as to improve both human understanding and the computer description of events that unfold in video sequences. Qualitative analysis can be used to understand a scene in ...
Face recognition with Eigenfaces : a detailed study.
With human society becoming increasingly computerised, the use of biometrics to automatically establish the identity of an individual is of great interest in a wide variety of applications. Facial appearance is an appealing ...
Gabor filter parameter optimization for multi-textured images : a case study on water body extraction from satellite imagery.
The analysis and identification of texture is a key area in image processing and computer vision. One of the most prominent texture analysis algorithms is the Gabor Filter. These filters are used by convolving an image ...
Model and solutions to campus parking space allocation problem.
Parking is considered a major land use challenge in campus planning. The problem can be in terms of scarcity (few available spaces compared to demand) or management (ineffi cient usage of available facilities). Many ...
Studies of heuristics for hostel space allocation problem.
This research work focused on the performance of heuristics and metaheuristics for the recently defined Hostel Space Allocation Problem (HSAP), a new instance of the space allocation problem (SAP) in higher institutions ...
Foundational ontology interchangeability with the Repository of Ontologies for MULltiple USes (ROMULUS).
The notion behind foundational ontologies is to have a single foundational ontology to serve as a basis for providing high-level entities and relations that are common between all ontologies in or- der to facilitate ...
A study of genetic algorithms for solving the school timetabling problem.
The school timetabling problem is a common optimization problem faced by many primary and secondary schools. Each school has its own set of requirements and constraints that are dependent on various factors such as the ...
On the sample consensus robust estimation paradigm: comprehensive survey and novel algorithms with applications.
This study begins with a comprehensive survey of existing variants of the Random Sample Consensus (RANSAC) algorithm. Then, five new ones are contributed. RANSAC, arguably the most popular robust estimation algorithm in ...
