Title Adaptive Harris Corners Detector Evaluated with Cross-Spectral Images Type Conference Article
Year 2018 Publication International Conference on Information Technology & Systems (ICITS 2018). ICITS 2018. Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing Abbreviated Journal
Volume 721 Issue Pages
Keywords
Abstract (up) This paper proposes a novel approach to use cross-spectral

images to achieve a better performance with the proposed Adaptive Harris

corner detector comparing its obtained results with those achieved

with images of the visible spectra. The images of urban, field, old-building

and country category were used for the experiments, given the variety of

the textures present in these images, with which the complexity of the

proposal is much more challenging for its verification. It is a new scope,

which means improving the detection of characteristic points using crossspectral

images (NIR, G, B) and applying pruning techniques, the combination

of channels for this fusion is the one that generates the largest

variance based on the intensity of the merged pixels, therefore, it is that

which maximizes the entropy in the resulting Cross-spectral images.

Harris is one of the most widely used corner detection algorithm, so

any improvement in its efficiency is an important contribution in the

field of computer vision. The experiments conclude that the inclusion of

a (NIR) channel in the image as a result of the combination of the spectra,

greatly improves the corner detection due to better entropy of the

resulting image after the fusion, Therefore the fusion process applied to

the images improves the results obtained in subsequent processes such as

identification of objects or patterns, classification and/or segmentation.

Title Thermal Image Super-Resolution: a Novel Architecture and Dataset Type Conference Article
Year 2020 Publication The 15th International Joint Conference on Computer Vision, Imaging and Computer Graphics Theory and Applications (VISIGRAPP 2020); Valletta, Malta; 27-29 Febrero 2020 Abbreviated Journal
Volume 4 Issue Pages 111-119
Keywords Thermal images, Far Infrared, Dataset, Super-Resolution.
Abstract (up) This paper proposes a novel CycleGAN architecture for thermal image super-resolution, together with a large

dataset consisting of thermal images at different resolutions. The dataset has been acquired using three thermal

cameras at different resolutions, which acquire images from the same scenario at the same time. The thermal

cameras are mounted in rig trying to minimize the baseline distance to make easier the registration problem.

The proposed architecture is based on ResNet6 as a Generator and PatchGAN as Discriminator. The novelty

on the proposed unsupervised super-resolution training (CycleGAN) is possible due to the existence of aforementioned thermal images—images of the same scenario with different resolutions. The proposed approach

is evaluated in the dataset and compared with classical bicubic interpolation. The dataset and the network are

available.

Title Near InfraRed Imagery Colorization Type Conference Article
Year 2018 Publication 25 th IEEE International Conference on Image Processing, ICIP 2018 Abbreviated Journal
Volume Issue Pages 2237-2241
Keywords
Abstract (up) This paper proposes a stacked conditional Generative

Adversarial Network-based method for Near InfraRed

(NIR) imagery colorization. We propose a variant architecture

of Generative Adversarial Network (GAN) that uses multiple

loss functions over a conditional probabilistic generative model.

We show that this new architecture/loss-function yields better

generalization and representation of the generated colored IR

images. The proposed approach is evaluated on a large test

dataset and compared to recent state of the art methods using

standard metrics.1

Title Deep learning based camera pose estimation in multi-view environment. Type Conference Article
Year 2018 Publication 14th IEEE International Conference on Signal Image Technology & Internet based Systems (SITIS 2018) Abbreviated Journal
Volume Issue Pages 224-228
Keywords
Abstract (up) This paper proposes to use a deep learning network architecture for relative camera pose estimation on a multi-view environment. The proposed network is a variant architecture of AlexNet to use as regressor for prediction the relative translation and rotation as output. The proposed approach is trained from scratch on a large data set that takes as input a pair of images from the same scene. This new architecture is compared with a previous approach using standard metrics, obtaining better results on the relative camera pose.

Title Thermal Image Super-Resolution Challenge – PBVS 2020 Type Conference Article
Year 2020 Publication The 16th IEEE Workshop on Perception Beyond the Visible Spectrum on the Conference on Computer Vision and Pattern Recongnition (CVPR 2020) Abbreviated Journal

Abstract (up) This paper summarizes the top contributions to the first challenge on thermal image super-resolution (TISR) which was organized as part of the Perception Beyond the Visible Spectrum (PBVS) 2020 workshop. In this challenge, a novel thermal image dataset is considered together with stateof-the-art approaches evaluated under a common framework.

The dataset used in the challenge consists of 1021 thermal images, obtained from three distinct thermal cameras at different resolutions (low-resolution, mid-resolution, and high-resolution), resulting in a total of 3063 thermal images. From each resolution, 951 images are used for training and 50 for testing while the 20 remaining images are used for two proposed evaluations. The first evaluation consists of downsampling the low-resolution, midresolution, and high-resolution thermal images by x2, x3 and x4 respectively, and comparing their super-resolution

results with the corresponding ground truth images. The second evaluation is comprised of obtaining the x2 superresolution from a given mid-resolution thermal image and comparing it with the corresponding semi-registered highresolution thermal image. Out of 51 registered participants, 6 teams reached the final validation phase.
