Configuration assistant for versatile vision based inspection systems

Hüsser, Olivier ; Hügli, Heinz

In: Machine Vision Applications in Industrial Inspection VIII (Proceedings of SPIE), 2000, vol. 3966, p. 259-269

Nowadays, vision-based inspection systems are present in many stages of the industrial manufacturing process. Their versatility, which permits to accommodate a broad range of inspection requirements, is however limited by the time consuming system setup performed at each production change. This work aims at providing a configuration assistant that helps to speed up this system setup, considering...

Model Performance for Visual Attention in Real 3D Color Scenes

Hügli, Heinz ; Jost, Timothée ; Ouerhani, Nabil

In: Artificial Intelligence and Knowledge Engineering Applications: A Bioinspired Approach. Series: Lecture Notes in Computer Science, 2006, vol. 3562, p. 469-478

Visual attention is the ability of a vision system, be it biological or artificial, to rapidly detect potentially relevant parts of a visual scene. The saliency-based model of visual attention is widely used to simulate this visual mechanism on computers. Though biologically inspired, this model has been only partially assessed in comparison with human behavior. The research described in this...

Assessing the contribution of color in visual attention

Jost, Timothée ; Ouerhani, Nabil ; von Wartburg, Roman ; Müri, René ; Hügli, Heinz

In: Computer Vision and Image Understanding, 2005, vol. 100, no. 1-2, p. 107-123

Visual attention is the ability of a vision system, be it biological or artificial, to rapidly detect potentially relevant parts of a visual scene, on which higher level vision tasks, such as object recognition, can focus. The saliency-based model of visual attention represents one of the main attempts to simulate this visual mechanism on computers. Though biologically inspired, this model has...
