Title Off-the-Shelf Based System for Urban Environment Video Analytics. Type Conference Article
Year (down) 2020 Publication The 27th International Conference on Systems, Signals and Image Processing (IWSSIP 2020) Abbreviated Journal
Volume 2020-July Issue 9145121 Pages 459-464
Keywords Greenhouse gases, carbon footprint, object detection, object tracking, website framework, off-the-shelf video analytics.
Abstract This paper presents the design and implementation details of a system build-up by using off-the-shelf algorithms for urban video analytics. The system allows the connection to public video surveillance camera networks to obtain the necessary

information to generate statistics from urban scenarios (e.g., amount of vehicles, type of cars, direction, numbers of persons, etc.). The obtained information could be used not only for traffic management but also to estimate the carbon footprint of urban scenarios. As a case study, a university campus is selected to

evaluate the performance of the proposed system. The system is implemented in a modular way so that it is being used as a testbed to evaluate different algorithms. Implementation results are provided showing the validity and utility of the proposed approach.

Title Statistical Representations of a Dashboard to Monitor Educational Videogames in Natural Language Type Conference Article
Year (down) 2020 Publication ETLTC – ACM Chapter: International Conference on Educational Technology, Language and Technical Communication; Fukushima, Japan, 27-31 Enero 2020 Abbreviated Journal
Volume 77 Issue Pages
Keywords
Abstract This paper explains how Natural Language (NL) processing by computers, through smart

programs as a way of Machine Learning (ML), can represent large sets of quantitative data as written

statements. The study recognized the need to improve the implemented web platform using a

dashboard in which we collected a set of extensive data to measure assessment factors of using

children´s educational games. In this case, applying NL is a strategy to give assessments, build, and

display more precise written statements to enhance the understanding of children´s gaming behavior.

We propose the development of a new tool to assess the use of written explanations rather than a

statistical representation of feedback information for the comprehension of parents and teachers with

a lack of primary level knowledge in statistics. Applying fuzzy logic theory, we present verbatim

explanations of children´s behavior playing educational videogames as NL interpretation instead of

statistical representations. An educational series of digital game applications for mobile devices,

identified as MIDI (Spanish acronym of “Interactive Didactic Multimedia for Children”) linked to a

dashboard in the cloud, is evaluated using the dashboard metrics. MIDI games tested in local primary

schools helps to evaluate the results of using the proposed tool. The guiding results allow analyzing

the degrees of playability and usability factors obtained from the data produced when children play a

MIDI game. The results obtained are presented in a comprehensive guiding evaluation report

applying NL for parents and teachers. These guiding evaluations are useful to enhance children's

learning understanding related to the school curricula applied to ludic digital games.

Title Fast CNN Stereo Depth Estimation through Embedded GPU Devices Type Journal Article
Year (down) 2020 Publication Sensors 2020 Abbreviated Journal
Volume Vol. 2020-June Issue 11 Pages pp. 1-13
Keywords stereo matching; deep learning; embedded GPU
Abstract Current CNN-based stereo depth estimation models can barely run under real-time

constraints on embedded graphic processing unit (GPU) devices. Moreover, state-of-the-art

evaluations usually do not consider model optimization techniques, being that it is unknown what is

the current potential on embedded GPU devices. In this work, we evaluate two state-of-the-art models

on three different embedded GPU devices, with and without optimization methods, presenting

performance results that illustrate the actual capabilities of embedded GPU devices for stereo depth

estimation. More importantly, based on our evaluation, we propose the use of a U-Net like architecture

for postprocessing the cost-volume, instead of a typical sequence of 3D convolutions, drastically

augmenting the runtime speed of current models. In our experiments, we achieve real-time inference

speed, in the range of 5–32 ms, for 1216  368 input stereo images on the Jetson TX2, Jetson Xavier,

and Jetson Nano embedded devices.

Title SSD vs. YOLO for Detection of Outdoor Urban Advertising Panels under Multiple Variabilities. Type Journal Article
Year (down) 2020 Publication Abbreviated Journal In Sensors
Volume Vol. 2020-August Issue 16 Pages pp. 1-23
Keywords object detection; urban outdoor panels; one-stage detectors; Single Shot MultiBox Detector (SSD); You Only Look Once (YOLO); detection metrics; object and scene imaging variabilities
Abstract This work compares Single Shot MultiBox Detector (SSD) and You Only Look Once (YOLO)

deep neural networks for the outdoor advertisement panel detection problem by handling multiple

and combined variabilities in the scenes. Publicity panel detection in images o ers important

advantages both in the real world as well as in the virtual one. For example, applications like Google

Street View can be used for Internet publicity and when detecting these ads panels in images, it could

be possible to replace the publicity appearing inside the panels by another from a funding company.

In our experiments, both SSD and YOLO detectors have produced acceptable results under variable

sizes of panels, illumination conditions, viewing perspectives, partial occlusion of panels, complex

background and multiple panels in scenes. Due to the diculty of finding annotated images for the

considered problem, we created our own dataset for conducting the experiments. The major strength

of the SSD model was the almost elimination of False Positive (FP) cases, situation that is preferable

when the publicity contained inside the panel is analyzed after detecting them. On the other side,

YOLO produced better panel localization results detecting a higher number of True Positive (TP)

panels with a higher accuracy. Finally, a comparison of the two analyzed object detection models

with di erent types of semantic segmentation networks and using the same evaluation metrics is

also included.

Title Lateral confinement of high-impedance surface-waves through reinforcement learning Type Journal Article
Year (down) 2020 Publication Electronics Letters Abbreviated Journal
Volume Vol. 56 Issue 23, 12 November 2020 Pages pp. 1262-1264
Keywords
Abstract The authors present a model-free policy-based reinforcement learning

model that introduces perturbations on the pattern of a metasurface.

The objective is to learn a policy that changes the size of the

patches, and therefore the impedance in the sides of an artificially structured

material. The proposed iterative model assigns the highest reward

when the patch sizes allow the transmission along a constrained path

and penalties when the patch sizes make the surface wave radiate to

the sides of the metamaterial. After convergence, the proposed

model learns an optimal patch pattern that achieves lateral confinement

along the metasurface. Simulation results show that the proposed

learned-pattern can effectively guide the electromagnetic wave

through a metasurface, maintaining its instantaneous eigenstate when

the homogeneity is perturbed. Moreover, the pattern learned to

prevent reflections by changing the patch sizes adiabatically. The

reflection coefficient S1, 2 shows that most of the power gets transferred

from the source to the destination with the proposed design.
