In the area of Digital Image Processing the new area of "Time-Varying Image Processing and Moving Oject Recognition" is contributing to impressive advances in several fields. Presented in this volume are new digital image processing and recognition methods, implementation techniques and advanced applications such as television, remote sensing, biomedicine, traffic, inspection, and robotics. New approaches (such as digital transforms, neural networks) for solving 2-D and 3-D problems are described. Many papers concentrate on motion estimation and recognition i.e. tracking of moving objects. Overall, the book describes the state-of-the-art (theory, implementation, applications) of this developing area, together with future trends. The work will be of interest not only to researchers, professors and students in university departments of engineering, communications, computers and automatic control, but also to engineers and managers of industries concerned with computer vision, manufacturing, automation, robotics and quality control.

Die stetige Weiterentwicklung von Methoden und Konzepten der Sensorfusion, der künstlichen und verteilten künstlichen Intelligenz sowie die Innovationen auf dem Gebiet der Sensorik und Aktorik und die kontinuierlich zunehmende Performanz und Miniaturisierung der Rechnersysteme führen zu immer neuen Einsatzfeldern autonomer mobiler Systeme. Daher werden solche Systeme nicht nur in den mittlerweile traditionellen Bereichen wie Konstruktion, Fertigung, Logistik, Service und Behindertenunterstützung eingesetzt, sondern auch in relativ neuen Bereichen, beispielsweise auf dem Gebiet der autonomen Fahrzeuge oder der autonomen Spielzeuge. Ziel dieser Fachgespräche ist, Wissenschaftlern aus Forschung und Industrie, die auf dem Gebiet der autonomen mobilen Systeme arbeiten, eine Basis für den Gedanken- und Ideenaustausch zu bieten und wissenschaftliche Diskussionen sowie Kooperationen auf diesem Forschungsgebiet zu fördern.

Why are We Writing This Book? Visual data (graphical, image, video, and visualized data) affect every aspect of modern society. The cheap collection, storage, and transmission of vast amounts of visual data have revolutionized the practice of science, technology, and business. Innovations from various disciplines have been developed and applied to the task of designing intelligent machines that can automatically detect and exploit useful regularities (patterns) in visual data. One such approach to machine intelligence is statistical learning and pattern analysis for visual data. Over the past two decades, rapid advances have been made throughout the ?eld of visual pattern analysis. Some fundamental problems, including perceptual gro- ing,imagesegmentation, stereomatching, objectdetectionandrecognition,and- tion analysis and visual tracking, have become hot research topics and test beds in multiple areas of specialization, including mathematics, neuron-biometry, and c- nition. A great diversity of models and algorithms stemming from these disciplines has been proposed. To address the issues of ill-posed problems and uncertainties in visual pattern modeling and computing, researchers have developed rich toolkits based on pattern analysis theory, harmonic analysis and partial differential eq- tions, geometry and group theory, graph matching, and graph grammars. Among these technologies involved in intelligent visual information processing, statistical learning and pattern analysis is undoubtedly the most popular and imp- tant approach, and it is also one of the most rapidly developing ?elds, with many achievements in recent years. Above all, it provides a unifying theoretical fra- work for intelligent visual information processing applications.

Die Autoren geben eine fundierte Einführung in die wichtigsten Methoden der digitalen Bildverarbeitung. Dabei steht die praktische Anwendbarkeit im Vordergrund, formale und mathematische Aspekte sind auf das Wesentliche reduziert, ohne dabei auf eine präzise und konsistente Vorgehensweise zu verzichten. Der Text eignet sich für technisch orientierte Studiengänge ab dem 3.Semester und basiert auf der mehrjährigen Lehrerfahrung der Autoren zu diesem Thema. Der Einsatz in der Lehre wird durch zahlreiche praktische Übungsaufgaben unterstützt. Das Buch eignet sich auch als detaillierte Referenz für Praktiker und Anwender gängiger Verfahren der digitalen Bildverarbeitung, z.B. in der Medizin, der Materialprüfung, der Robotik oder der Medientechnik. Softwareseitig basiert das Buch auf der in Java implementierten und frei verfügbaren Bildverarbeitungsumgebung ImageJ.

The processing of image sequences has a broad spectrum of important applica tions including target tracking, robot navigation, bandwidth compression of TV conferencing video signals, studying the motion of biological cells using microcinematography, cloud tracking, and highway traffic monitoring. Image sequence processing involves a large amount of data. However, because of the progress in computer, LSI, and VLSI technologies, we have now reached a stage when many useful processing tasks can be done in a reasonable amount of time. As a result, research and development activities in image sequence analysis have recently been growing at a rapid pace. An IEEE Computer Society Workshop on Computer Analysis of Time-Varying Imagery was held in Philadelphia, April 5-6, 1979. A related special issue of the IEEE Transactions on Pattern Anal ysis and Machine Intelligence was published in November 1980. The IEEE Com puter magazine has also published a special issue on the subject in 1981. The purpose of this book is to survey the field of image sequence analysis and to discuss in depth a number of important selected topics. The seven chap ters fall into two categories. Chapters 2, 3, and 7 are comprehensive surveys on, respectively, the whole field of image sequence analysis, efficient coding of image sequences, and the processing of medical image sequences. In Chapters 1, 4, 5, and 6 the authors present mainly results of their own research on, respectively, motion estimation, noise reduction in image sequences, moving object extraction, and occlusion.
