Title A predictive model for human activity recognition by observing actions and context Type Conference Article
Year (down) 2015 Publication ACIVS 2015 (Advanced Concepts for Intelligent Vision Systems), International Conference on, Catania, Italy, 2015 Abbreviated Journal
Volume Issue Pages 323 - 333
Keywords Edge width, Image blu,r Defocus map, Edge model
Abstract This paper presents a novel model to estimate human activities – a human activity is defined by a set of human actions. The proposed approach is based on the usage of Recurrent Neural Networks (RNN) and Bayesian inference through the continuous monitoring of human actions and its surrounding environment. In the current work human activities are inferred considering not only visual analysis but also additional resources; external sources of information, such as context information, are incorporated to contribute to the activity estimation. The novelty of the proposed approach lies in the way the information is encoded, so that it can be later associated according to a predefined semantic structure. Hence, a pattern representing a given activity can be defined by a set of actions, plus contextual information or other kind of information that could be relevant to describe the activity. Experimental results with real data are provided showing the validity of the proposed approach.

Title A visible-Thermal Fusion based Monocular Visual Odometry Type Conference Article
Year (down) 2015 Publication Iberian Robotics Conference (ROBOT 2015), International Conference on, Lisbon, Portugal, 2015 Abbreviated Journal
Volume 417 Issue Pages 517-528
Keywords Monocular Visual Odometry; LWIR-RGB cross-spectral Imaging; Image Fusion
Abstract The manuscript evaluates the performance of a monocular visual odometry approach when images from different spectra are considered, both independently and fused. The objective behind this evaluation is to analyze if classical approaches can be improved when the given images, which are from different spectra, are fused and represented in new domains. The images in these new domains should have some of the following properties: i) more robust to noisy data; ii) less sensitive to changes (e.g., lighting); iii) more rich in descriptive information, among other. In particular in the current work two different image fusion strategies are considered. Firstly, images from the visible and thermal spectrum are fused using a Discrete Wavelet Transform (DWT) approach. Secondly, a monochrome threshold strategy is considered. The obtained representations are evaluated under a visual odometry framework, highlighting their advantages and disadvantages, using different urban and semi-urban scenarios. Comparisons with both monocular-visible spectrum and monocular-infrared spectrum, are also provided showing the validity of the proposed approach.

Title Feature Point Descriptors: Infrared and Visible Spectra Type Journal Article
Year (down) 2014 Publication Sensors Journal Abbreviated Journal
Volume Vol. 14 Issue Pages pp. 3690-3701
Keywords cross-spectral imaging; feature point descriptors
Abstract This manuscript evaluates the behavior of classical feature point descriptors when they are used in images from long-wave infrared spectral band and compare them with the results obtained in the visible spectrum. Robustness to changes in rotation, scaling, blur, and additive noise are analyzed using a state of the art framework. Experimental results using a cross-spectral outdoor image data set are presented and conclusions from these experiments are given.

Title RWE patterns extraction for on-line human action recognition through window-based analysis of invariant moments Type Conference Article
Year (down) 2012 Publication 5th Workshop in applied Robotics and Automation (RoboControl) Abbreviated Journal
Volume Issue Pages
Keywords Human action recognition, Relative Wavelet Energy, Window-based temporal analysis.
Abstract This paper presents a method for on-line human action recognition on video sequences. An analysis based on Mahalanobis distance is performed to identify the “idle” state, which defines the beginning and end of the person movement, for posterior patterns extraction based on Relative Wavelet Energy from sequences of invariant moments.

Title An approach to automatic assistance in physiotherapy based on on-line movement identification. Type Conference Article
Year (down) 2012 Publication VI Andean Region International Conference – ANDESCON 2012 Abbreviated Journal
Volume Issue Pages
Keywords patient rehabilitation, patient treatment, statistical analysis
Abstract This paper describes a method for on-line movement identification, oriented to patient’s movement evaluation during physiotherapy. An analysis based on Mahalanobis distance between temporal windows is performed to identify the “idle/motion” state, which defines the beginning and end of the patient’s movement, for posterior patterns extraction based on Relative Wavelet Energy from sequences of invariant moments.
