    Slovenian Virtual Gallery on the Internet

    Get PDF
    The Slovenian Virtual Gallery (SVG) is a World Wide Web based multimedia collection of pictures, text, clickable-maps and video clips presenting Slovenian fine art from the gothic period up to the present days. Part of SVG is a virtual gallery space where pictures hang on the walls while another part is devoted to current exhibitions of selected Slovenian art galleries. The first version of this application was developed in the first half of 1995. It was based on a file system for storing all the data and custom developed software for search, automatic generation of HTML documents, scaling of pictures and remote management of the system. Due to the fast development of Web related tools a new version of SVG was developed in 1997 based on object-oriented relational database server technology. Both implementations are presented and compared in this article with issues related to the transion between the two versions. At the end, we will also discuss some extensions to SVG. We will present the GUI (Graphical User Interface) developed specially for presentation of current exhibitions over the Web which is based on GlobalView panoramic navigation extension to developed Internet Video Server (IVS). And since SVG operates with a lot of image data, we will confront with the problem of Image Content Retrieval

    Panoramic Depth Imaging: Single Standard Camera Approach

    In this paper we present a panoramic depth imaging system. The system is mosaic-based which means that we use a single rotating camera and assemble the captured images in a mosaic. Due to a setoff of the camera’s optical center from the rotational center of the system we are able to capture the motion parallax effect which enables stereo reconstruction. The camera is rotating on a circular path with a step defined by the angle, equivalent to one pixel column of the captured image. The equation for depth estimation can be easily extracted from the system geometry. To find the corresponding points on a stereo pair of panoramic images the epipolar geometry needs to be determined. It can be shown that the epipolar geometry is very simple if we are doing the reconstruction based on a symmetric pair of stereo panoramic images. We get a symmetric pair of stereo panoramic images when we take symmetric pixel columns on the left and on the right side from the captured image center column. Epipolar lines of the symmetrical pair of panoramic images are image rows. The search space on the epipolar line can be additionaly constrained. The focus of the paper is mainly on the system analysis. Results of the stereo reconstruction procedure and quality evaluation of generated depth images are quite promissing. The system performs well for reconstruction of small indoor spaces. Our finall goal is to develop a system for automatic navigation of a mobile robot in a room

    Face recognition in different subspaces - A comparative study

    Face recognition is one of the most successful applications of image analysis and understanding and has gained much attention in recent years. Among many approaches to the problem of face recognition, appearance-based subspace analysis still gives the most promising results. In this paper we study the three most popular appearance-based face recognition projection methods (PCA, LDA and ICA). All methods are tested in equal working conditions regarding preprocessing and algorithm implementation on the FERET data set with its standard tests. We also compare the ICA method with its whitening preprocess and find out that there is no significant difference between them. When we compare different projection with different metrics we found out that the LDA+COS combination is the most promising for all tasks. The L1 metric gives the best results in combination with PCA and ICA1, and COS is superior to any other metric when used with LDA and ICA2. Our results are compared to other studies and some discrepancies are pointed ou

    Problems regarding implementation of e-learning

    When considering the implementation of e-learning into our system of education, attention must be paid to the demands to be met at different levels. It is a known fact that the difficulty of implementation varies from primary school to university. In primary schools, e-learning is only a supplement to traditional lessons, while at university tutorials can be made up entirely of e-learning elements. However, High School falls between these two levels - the extent of e-learning is not adequately defined and its implementation is much more problematic than one would expect. Ideally, the progress of a student’s comprehension should grow linearly from primary school to university. This would also allow for a gradual increase in the e-learning content of lessons. However, the reality in education is quite different. It must be recognised that the transition between primary and high school, and between high school and university is not as smooth as it should be. There exists a large gap in a student’s comprehension at these two stages of transition, which for many students results in a reduced level of achievement. This happens because, before the transitional stage, students are not as competent in their independent learning skills as the next stage would require. A decrease in overall success rates is seen very early in the first year of these stages of transition (the first year of high school and the first year at university). This gap in a student’s comprehension at these transitional stages results in further difficulties because of the increased use of e-learning in the stage that follows. Students have enough problems developing their learning capabilities and further changes (however positive) can also lead to a reduced level of achievement. When considering implementation into the system of education, all three levels must be coordinated in order to reduce the large disparities that cause so many problems

    An Automatic Human Face Detection Method

    Get PDF
    This article contains a proposal for an automatic human face detection method, that tries to join several theories proposed by different authors. The method is based on detection of shape features (eye pairs) and skin color. The method assumes certain circumstances and constraints, respectively. Therefore it is not applicable universally. Given the constraints, it is effective enough for applications where fast execution is required. Test results are given and at the end some directives for future work are discussed
