  Title Colorizing Near Infrared Images through a Cyclic Adversarial Approach of Unpaired Samples Type Conference Article
  Year 2019 Publication Conference on Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition Workshops (CVPR 2019); Long Beach, California, United States Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume Issue Pages 971-979  
  Keywords  
  Abstract (up) This paper presents a novel approach for colorizing

near infrared (NIR) images. The approach is based on

image-to-image translation using a Cycle-Consistent adversarial network for learning the color channels on unpaired dataset. This architecture is able to handle unpaired datasets. The approach uses as generators tailored

networks that require less computation times, converge

faster and generate high quality samples. The obtained results have been quantitatively—using standard evaluation

metrics—and qualitatively evaluated showing considerable

improvements with respect to the state of the art

  Title A predictive model for human activity recognition by observing actions and context Type Conference Article
  Year 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 (up) 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 Transfer Learning from Synthetic Data in the Camera Pose Estimation Problem 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 498-505  
  Keywords Relative Camera Pose Estimation, Siamese Architecture, Synthetic Data, Deep Learning, Multi-View Environments, Extrinsic Camera Parameters.  
  Abstract (up) This paper presents a novel Siamese network architecture, as a variant of Resnet-50, to estimate the relative camera pose on multi-view environments. In order to improve the performance of the proposed model

a transfer learning strategy, based on synthetic images obtained from a virtual-world, is considered. The

transfer learning consist of first training the network using pairs of images from the virtual-world scenario

considering different conditions (i.e., weather, illumination, objects, buildings, etc.); then, the learned weight

of the network are transferred to the real case, where images from real-world scenarios are considered. Experimental results and comparisons with the state of the art show both, improvements on the relative pose

estimation accuracy using the proposed model, as well as further improvements when the transfer learning

strategy (synthetic-world data – transfer learning – real-world data) is considered to tackle the limitation on

the training due to the reduced number of pairs of real-images on most of the public data sets.

  Title Cycle generative adversarial network: towards a low-cost vegetation index estimation Type Conference Article
  Year 2021 Publication IEEE International Conference on Image Processing (ICIP 2021) Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume 2021-September Issue Pages 2783-2787  
  Keywords CyclicGAN, NDVI, near infrared spectra, instance normalization.  
  Abstract (up) This paper presents a novel unsupervised approach to estimate the Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI).The NDVI is obtained as the ratio between information from the visible and near infrared spectral bands; in the current work, the NDVI is estimated just from an image of the visible spectrum through a Cyclic Generative Adversarial Network (CyclicGAN). This unsupervised architecture learns to estimate the NDVI index by means of an image translation between the red channel of a given RGB image and the NDVI unpaired index’s image. The translation is obtained by means of a ResNET architecture and a multiple loss function. Experimental results obtained with this unsupervised scheme show the validity of the implemented model. Additionally, comparisons with the state of the art approaches are provided showing improvements with the proposed approach.

  Title Forward and Inverse Kinematics of a Humanoid Robot Head for Social Human Robot-Interaction Type Conference Article
  Year 2019 Publication IEEE ETCM 2019 Fourth Ecuador Technical Chapters Meeting; Guayaquil, Ecuador Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume Issue Pages  
  Keywords  
  Abstract (up) This paper presents an analysis of forward and inverse kinematics for a humanoid robotic head. The robotic head is used for the study of social human-robot interaction, such as a support tool to maintain the attention of patients with Autism Spectrum Disorder. The design of a parallel robot that emulates human head movements through a closed structure is presented. The position and orientation in this space is controlled by three servomotors. For this, the solutions made for the kinematic problem are encompassed by a geometric analysis of a mobile base. This article describes a non-systematic method,

called the geometric method, and compares some of the most popular existing methods considering reliability and computational cost. The geometric method avoids the use of changing reference systems, and instead uses geometric

relationships to directly obtain the position based on joint variables; and the other way around. Therefore, it converges in a few iterations and has a low computational cost.

  Title Thermal Image Super-Resolution Challenge Results- PBVS 2022. Type Conference Article
  Year 2022 Publication Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition Workshops, (CVPRW 2022), junio 19-24. Abbreviated Journal CONFERENCE  
  Volume 2022-June Issue Pages 349-357  
  Keywords  
  Abstract (up) This paper presents results from the third Thermal Image

Super-Resolution (TISR) challenge organized in the Perception Beyond the Visible Spectrum (PBVS) 2022 workshop.

The challenge uses the same thermal image dataset as the

first two challenges, with 951 training images and 50 validation images at each resolution. A set of 20 images was

kept aside for testing. The evaluation tasks were to measure

the PSNR and SSIM between the SR image and the ground

truth (HR thermal noisy image downsampled by four), and

also to measure the PSNR and SSIM between the SR image

and the semi-registered HR image (acquired with another

camera). The results outperformed those from last year’s

challenge, improving both evaluation metrics. This year,

almost 100 teams participants registered for the challenge,

showing the community’s interest in this hot topic.
