FYP 2009-10

Title:

Panoramic View generation with Depth Handling

No. of Students:

2

Broad Domain:

Signal/Image Processing, Computer Vision, Digital System Design

Proposed Advisor / Co-Advisor:

Dr. Rehan Hafiz, Mr. Awais Malik, Mr. Asif Khan, Mr. Shumayal, or any other interested FM

Description:

This is a follow-up form last year project. Multi View Imaging (MVI) systems are finding increased usage in a wide range of next generation multimedia applications. Rather than recording a single video from a single view; MVI systems rely on acquiring multiple videos of the same object from multiple views (angles). This increased visual information of the object being filmed can then be used to achieve interesting results, such as “Immersive TV applications”.

This year the focus is on panorama generation schemes that handle objects placed at varying depths from the camera views.

Deliverables:

[1]    At least 3 USB cameras oriented in an outward semi-circle generating panorama of views with varying depth

[2]    (Or) View generation of a model football stadium field with a grid of cameras (3-4) placed over it.

[3]    (Optional)  Memory, Fixed point & Computational analysis for FPGA based implementation of the selected algorithm

Application/Product Domain:

Security Surveillance, Military Application (Tanks, APVs, Sub-marine View)

Title:

Vision Based Class Attendance System

No. of Students:

2

Broad Domain:

Signal/Image Processing, Computer Vision

Proposed Advisor / Co-Advisor:

Mr. Asif Khan & Dr. Rehan Hafiz

Description:

In this project you will be prototyping a vision based class attendance system by employing state of the art face recognition algorithms. The project will consist of two main modules: Face localization and Face recognition. By employing face localization you will be aiming at marking the attendance of multiple students in a single camera frame.

Deliverables:

[4]    A working prototype, employing a USB camera at an entrance & marking attendance.

[5]    A Verification system; allowing one to know if he has been correctly marked as present.

[6]    A security oriented product that extracts only the faces of people and record them in a database

 

Application/Product Domain:

Security Surveillance, Attendance system for universities & offices

Title:

Object Tracking and Tracked Path Generation in a Mosaic Video

No. of Students:

2

Broad Domain:

Signal/Image Processing, Computer Vision

Proposed Advisor / Co-Advisor:

Dr. Rehan Hafiz & Mr. Asif Khan, or any other interested FM

Description:

In this project you will be developing a system that will generate the path traversed by an object being tracked in a mosaic video. A mosaic video is a video constructed by augmenting several different videos in a wide view single merged view. The tracked path will be stored as a GIF image, thus saving considerable storage space for surveillance storage.

There will be two main modules of the project: Planar Video Mosaicing and Mean Shift (or Spatiograms based) Object tracking.

Consider multiple cameras (c1, c2, c3…) viewing different portions of a long corridor. The output of the system will be the tracked path of a person moving through the corridor and stored as a GIF image as shown below:

[2]    Automatic Video Object Tracking Using a Mosaic-Based Background, LNCS, 2005

Deliverables:

[1]    A planar mosaic video of atleast 3 USB cameras, capturing a long corridor.

[2]    A successful digital path creation of the tracked object, like the one shown in sample figure in the left column

Application/Product Domain:

Security Surveillance, Parking lot path creation

Title:

Digital Image Calibration for Multi Projector System (DICMS)

No. of Students:

2-3

Broad Domain:

Signal/Image Processing, Computer Vision, Digital System Design

Proposed Advisor / Co-Advisor:

Dr. Rehan Hafiz, Mr. Awais Malik, Mr. Asif Khan, Mr. Shumayal, One external advisor from Epic Technologies, or any other interested FM

Description:

Large seamless displays using overlapping projectors is an emerging technology for constructing high-resolution immersive visualization environments capable of presenting high-resolution images from scientific simulation, large format images for entertainment and surround environment for instruction. This technique has particular application in low cost dome/curved screen based flight simulators.

To display images onto curved surfaces the content has to be distributed to multiple projectors. The curved nature of the screen and the projectors’ different intrinsic & extrinsic properties with respect to each other result into geometric and photometric distortions in the final augmented projection.

 

Students will be implementing state of the art research papers to achieve photometric & geometric correction.

Deliverables:

[1]    Geometrical Correction for 2-3 projectors, projecting on a curved screen using one single feedback camera

[2]    Photometric Correction for 2-3 projectors, projecting on a curved screen using one single feedback camera

[3]    (Bonus) Demonstration of Xplane Flight Simulator on the Calibrated system

Application/Product Domain:

Military & Entertainment Simulators, Multimedia Walls

Title:

An embedded NI CVS-1454  based Number Plate localization system for traffic control

No. of Students:

2

Broad Domain:

Signal/Image Processing, Digital System Design, Microprocessor based embedded system design

Proposed Advisor / Co-Advisor:

Dr. Rehan Hafiz, Mr. Habeel Ahmed, Mr. Asif Khan

Description:

In this project a standalone embedded system will be designed based on the National Instruments NI CVS Compact Vision System; that responds to the event of a vehicle breaking a red light at a traffic junction. The system will be capable of cropping & storing the violator’s license Plate number in the centralized data base.

Deliverables:

[1]  A successful installation of the standalone system at a traffic signal in a constrained environment.

Application/Product Domain:

Traffic Control Applications

Broad Domain:

Embedded Systems

Proposed Advisor / Co-Advisor:

Dr. Rehan Hafiz, Mr. Abul Afram, Mr. Habeel Ahmed ,

Mr. Kamran Zaidi or any other interested FM

Description:

A programmable robotic car that learns/stores the digital map of a building corridor and then conveys letter/paper documents from one office to another as desired. The robot shall have desirable features, such as collision detection, path correction (if required). A bonus feature for it is to communicate with another similar robot to transfer the documents across different floors of a building

Deliverables:

[1]    A robot that learns the digital map of a building & follows it

[2]    Transports A-4 sized documents from one office to another office as directed

Application/Product Domain:

Office, Automation, Hospitals
