This paper presents our research on automatic shadow detection from high-resolution aerial image through the hybrid analysis of RGB and HIS color space. To this end, the spectral characteristics of shadow are firstly discussed and three kinds of spectral components including the difference between normalized blue and normalized red component - BR, intensity and saturation components are selected as criterions to obtain initial segmentation of shadow region (called primary segmentation). After that, within the normalized RGB color space and HIS color space, the shadow region is extracted again (called auxiliary segmentation) using the OTSU operation, respectively. Finally, the primary segmentation and auxiliary segmentation are combined through a logical AND-connection operation to obtain reliable shadow region. In this step, small shadow areas are removed from combined shadow region and morphological algorithms are apply to fill small holes as well. The experimental results show that the proposed approach can effectively detect the shadow region from high-resolution aerial image and in high degree of automaton. © 2015 SPIE.

In this paper, we developed the adaptive fast iris capture device, and proposed a new online iris image quality assessment algorithm which combines pupil coarse location. On ARM embedded system of iris image capture, iris quality is real-time assessment, combined with feedback control to adjust light source, focal length, pupil contraction LED, etc. It does not require the user actively move to cooperate with the device during iris capture. The qualified iris image is transmitted through the USB interface to the host computer. Finally, we establish the iris library (has captured more than 1000 iris samples), and the capture device and iris quality assessment algorithm has been tested. The average capture can be completed within 1 s. The test of iris recognition proved that the iris capture device and iris image quality assessment algorithm is valid. © 2015 Elsevier GmbH.

As digital microfluidic biochips are widely used in biochemical field, it highly demands the chip reliability and manufacturing costs. Online testing is an important method to ensure the normal work of the digital microfluidic biochips. In this paper, an online parallel testing scheme is proposed based on improved max-min ant colony algorithm for pin-constrained digital microfluidic biochips. The scheme uses pseudo-random-proportional rules, establishes a taboo judgment strategy, and changes the pheromone trail persistence adaptively to realize the online parallel testing of pin-constrained digital microfluidic biochips. The experiment results show that the proposed method can be used for both offline and online testing, and compared with the offline and online testing of the single droplet, the proposed method can effectively reduce the test time and improve the efficiency. ©, 2015, Science Press.

This paper presents our research on registering single aerial image to a LiDAR point cloud. Given its high spatial resolution, spatial positioning accuracy, and efficiency in capturing data of physical surfaces, LiDAR has been influenced by and has significantly changed photogrammetry. The fusion of LiDAR data with aerial images offers various applications, such as DOM generation, virtual reality, city modeling, and military training, because of the complementary nature of the information provided by the two systems. However, the two datasets should be geo-registered into a common coordinate frame prior to such integration, which proves to be quite challenging in terms of either automation or accuracy. Such a challenge may be partly caused by inefficiency in the feature measurement or detection stage. For example, the identification of point of interest or straight line feature is viable and reliable in optical images but is difficult to achieve in LiDAR point clouds because of its poor discontinuity measurements. To this end, an automatic geo-registration approach based on “pin-hole” imaging simulation and iterative gradient mutual information computation is proposed to align single aerial image to discrete LiDAR point clouds. The proposed approach takes photogrammetry collinear equation as strict mathematic mode and involves three stages. First, a virtual “pin-hole” imaging process restored from aerial image orientation parameters is established on urban LiDAR point clouds to generate simulated, gray, LiDAR-depth images. The generated LiDAR-depth images are geometrically similar to aerial images. Hence, difficulties in registration caused by distinct differences in spatial resolution, perspective distortion, and size between the two types of data sources can be greatly alleviated. Second, the geometric transform parameters between LiDAR depth images and aerial images are successfully estimated with the gradient mutual information as the similarity measurement. Moreover, the image pyramid partitioning strategy is implemented to accelerate the search for parameter space. In this stage, LiDAR laser feet points can be roughly mapped on aerial image pixels on the basis of the estimated geometric transform parameters and the known projection relations between LiDAR point clouds and their depth images. Third, the photogrammetry space resection algorithm is implemented using all the mapped aerial image pixels as observed values and their gradient mutual information as weight to improve image orientation parameters. The three stages are repeated until the given iterative calculation condition is met and the LiDAR point clouds are registered with single aerial image. Selected airborne LiDAR data and an aerial image with different initial parameter values are tested with the proposed approach. Approximately 0.5 pixel is obtained, indicating a higher registration precision compared with the ICP algorithm. (1) The “pin-hole” simulation imaging and iterative gradient mutual information calculation successfully resolve the difficult heterologous correspondence problem between LiDAR point clouds and optical aerial images; (2) The photogrammetry space resection algorithm can obtain registration parameters with minimum projection errors and reliable precision evaluation by maximizing the use of intensive space information from LiDAR data and recovering optical bundles of laser beams directly. © 2016, Science Press.

A new meta-heuristic method is proposed to enhance current meta-heuristic methods for global optimization and test scheduling for three-dimensional (3D) stacked system-on-chip (SoC) by hybridizing grey wolf optimization with differential evolution (HGWO). Because basic grey wolf optimization (GWO) is easy to fall into stagnation when it carries out the operation of attacking prey, and differential evolution (DE) is integrated into GWO to update the previous best position of grey wolf Alpha, Beta and Delta, in order to force GWO to jump out of the stagnation with DE's strong searching ability. The proposed algorithm can accelerate the convergence speed of GWO and improve its performance. Twenty-three well-known benchmark functions and an NP hard problem of test scheduling for 3D SoC are employed to verify the performance of the proposed algorithm. Experimental results show the superior performance of the proposed algorithm for exploiting the optimum and it has advantages in terms of exploration. © 1990-2011 Beijing Institute of Aerospace Information.

An erbium-doped fiber amplifier (EDFA) supporting four mode groups has been theoretically designed by concatenating two sections of erbium-doped fibers (EDFs). Each EDF has a simple erbium doping profile for the purpose of reducing its fabrication complexity. We propose a modified genetic algorithm (GA) to provide detailed investigations on the concatenated amplifier. Both the optimal fiber length and erbium doping radius in each EDF have been found to minimize the gain difference between signal modes. Results show that the parameters of the central-doped EDF have a greater impact on the amplifier performance compared to those of the annular-doped one. We then investigate the influence of the small deviations of the erbium fiber length, doping radius and doping concentration of each EDF from their optimal values upon the amplifier performance, and discuss their design tolerances in obtaining a desirable amplification characteristics. © 2015 Elsevier B.V.

When localizing the position of an unknown node for wireless sensor networks, the received signal strength indicator (RSSI) value is usually considered to fit a fixed attenuation model with a corresponding communication distance. However, due to some negative factors, the relationship is not valid in the actual localization environment, which leads to a considerable localization error. Therefore, we present a method for improved RSSI-based localization through uncertain data mapping. Starting from an advanced RSSI measurement, the distributions of the RSSI data tuples are determined and expressed in terms of interval data. Then, a data tuple pattern matching strategy is applied to the RSSI data vector during the localization procedure. Experimental results in three representative wireless environments show the feasibility and effectiveness of the proposed approach. © 2016 IEEE.

This paper presents a novel method for facial expression recognition based on semi random patches sampling. Different from most of the facial expression methods that use spatio expression descriptor, temporal expression descriptor or both, we extract spatio-temporal expression information by a technology of semi random patches sampling. In the facial feature extraction, expression salient features are first determined; face images are second normalized and warped to a standard face; then temporal expression information is obtained by the differences between the warped expression and its corresponding reference expression model; thirdly, a small set of patches is extracted from both spatio expression information and temporal expression information around each expression salient features. The semi random patches are used to perform facial expression recognition. The proposed semi random patches extraction is simple, yet by leveraging the sparse nature of expression images. Experimental results demonstrate that our approach is able to capture subtle texture variations caused by expression, even under occlusion and corruption. © Springer International Publishing Switzerland 2015.

In this paper, we propose an improved active contour without edges to detect boundary in a given image, based on the techniques of curve evolution, gradient vector flow and snakes. Our improved model will stop on the desired boundary under the double constraints in the gradient and a particular image segmentation. We minimize an energy, which contains two types of external energy, to search the best boundary. The stopping term not only depends on the gradient of the images, but also relates to a particular image segmentation. The weights between the external gradient energy and the other gradient from a particular image segmentation can be determined adaptively. The proposed method is operated on various images for evaluating the performance of our method. The experiment results demonstrate that our method can obtain better boundary, compared to ACWE (Active Contour without Edges) algorithm, the traditional snake (TS) and GVF-snake algorithm.
