Video FRUC (Frame Rate Up Conversion) has been a technique of great interest due to its diversified applications in consumer electronics. Most advanced FRUC algorithms adopt a motion interpolation technique to determine the motion vector field of interpolated frames. But, in some applications, it is necessary to evaluate how well the MCI (Motion Compensated Interpolation) frame is reconstructed. For this aim, this paper proposes a distortion estimation for motion compensated interpolation frame using frame-adaptive distortion estimation. The proposed method is applied for the symmetric motion estimation and compensated scheme and then analyzed by three different approaches, that is, forward estimation, backward estimation and adaptive bi-directional estimation schemes. Through computer simulations, it is shown that the proposed bi-directional estimation method outperforms others and can be effectively applied for FRUC.

The research of vehicle license plate recognition has been widely studied for the smart city project. The license plate recognition can be hard due to the geometric distortion and the image quality degradation in case of capturing the driving car image at CCTV without trigger signal on the road. In this paper, the high performance vehicle license plate recognition system using edge-based segment image is introduced which is robust in the geometric distortion and the image quality degradation according to non-trigger signal. The experimental results of the proposed real time license plate recognition algorithm which is implemented at the CCTV on the road show that the plate detection rate was 97.5% and the overall character recognition rate of the detected plates was 99.3% in a day average 1,535 vehicles for a week operation.

Andre Bazin called the movie frame as "the window open to the world." This expression is close to realization through 3D films. The 'Avatar' released in 2009 was a new turning point for 3D films. Nowadays the theory and information about 3D films is overflowed. It is necessary to find practices and to accumulate data useful in production of 3D films. There are several ways of working to achieve high quality 3D films. In any way that's chosen, there are priorities to be considered to create well-balanced 3D films. The aim of this article is to review primary considerations in film-making and share the technical issues experienced during the production of "Let's go to the amusement park again, Mom." Because the current practical knowledge in making 3D film is shallow, this article will offer a possible reference for further research.

In this study, we analyzed the effects of game-based visual feedback training on postural balance control in young adults. We provided postural balance training for four weeks in fifth minute a day and three days a week using training system of postural balance based forceplate. We evaluated the ability of postural balance using balance SD(Biodex, medicalscience Inc., USA) for the validation of game contents based visual feedback training program. The results showed that postural stability and limits of stability were improved significantly before and after the training(p<0.05). Our study indicates that postural balance training of visual feedback based game could be adapted for improving postural balance. Also, for application of this game-based visual feedback training in older adults, we could develope of various game contents for disease types and conduct quantitative analysis and data collection of postural balance in the aged.

Determining the similarity between two strings can be applied various area such as information retrieval, spell checker and spam filtering. Similarity calculation between Korean strings based on dynamic programming methods firstly requires a definition of the similarity between phonemes. However, existing methods have a limitation that they use manually set similarity scores. In this paper, we propose a method to automatically calculate inter-phoneme similarity from a given set of variant words using a PAM-like probabilistic model. Our proposed method first finds the pairs of similar words from a given word set, and derives derivation rules from text alignment results among the similar word pairs. Then, similarity scores are calculated from the frequencies of variations between different phonemes. As an experimental result, we show an improvement of 10.1%~14.1% and 8.1%~11.8% in terms of sensitivity compared with the simple match-mismatch scoring scheme and the manually set inter-phoneme similarity scheme, respectively, with a specificity of 77.2%~80.4%.

In wireless sensor networks, a moving object tracking scheme is one of core technologies for real applications such as environment monitering and enemy moving tracking in military areas. However, no works have been carried out on processing the failure of object tracking in sparse sensor networks with holes. Therefore, the energy consumption in the existing schemes significantly increases due to plenty of failures of moving object tracking. To overcome this problem, we propose a novel moving object tracking scheme based on polynomial regression prediction in sparse sensor networks. The proposed scheme activates the minimum sensor nodes by predicting the trajectory of an object based on polynomial regression analysis. Moreover, in the case of the failure of moving object tracking, it just activates only the boundary nodes of a hole for failure recovery. By doing so, the proposed scheme reduces the energy consumption and ensures the high accuracy for object tracking in the sensor network with holes. To show the superiority of our proposed scheme, we compare it with the existing scheme. Our experimental results show that our proposed scheme reduces about 47% energy consumption for object tracking over the existing scheme and achieves about 91% accuracy of object tracking even in sensor networks with holes.

In wireless sensor networks, a positioning scheme is one of core technologies for sensor applications such as disaster monitoring and environment monitoring. The One of the most positioning scheme, called DV-HOP does not consider non-uniform sensor networks that are actual distributed environments. Therefore, the accuracy of the existing positioning scheme is low in non-uniform network environments. Moreover, because it requires many anchor nodes for high accuracy in non-uniform network environments, it is expensive to construct the network. To overcome this problem, we propose a novel sensor positioning scheme using density probability models in non-uniform wireless sensor networks. The proposed scheme consists of the density probability model using the deployment characteristics of sensor nodes and the distance refinement algorithm for high accuracy. By doing so, the proposed scheme ensures the high accuracy of sensor positioning in non-uniform networks. To show the superiority of our proposed scheme, we compare it with the existing scheme. Our experimental results show that our proposed scheme improves about 44% accuracy of sensor positioning over the existing scheme on average even in non-uniform sensor networks.

This paper proposes a concept and algorithm of cloth covering. It is a physically-based model which simulates computationally a shape of cloth covering some objects. The goal of cloth covering is to conceal the details of object and to reveal only the shape outline. It has one scale parameter which controls the degree of suppressing fine-scale structures. To show viability of the proposed cloth covering, this paper performed an experiment of script recognition. The results of comparing accuracies of feature extraction using Gaussian and cloth covering showed that the cloth covering is superior to Gaussian. We discuss the reason for the superiority.

Kim, Song-Ju ;
The Journal of the Korea Contents Association, volume 12, issue 3, 2012, Pages 77~83
DOI : 10.5392/JKCA.2012.12.03.077
In this paper, a low-complexity embedded compression (EC) Codec algorithm for the wavelet video coder is applied to reduce excessive external memory requirements. The EC algorithm is used to achieve a fixed compression ratio of 50 % under the near-lossless-compression constraint. The EC technique can reduce the 50 % memory requirement for intermediate low-frequency coefficients during multiple discrete wavelet transform stages compared with direct implementation of the wavelet video encoder of this paper. Furthermore, the EC scheme based on a forward adaptive quantization and fixed length coding can save bandwidth and size of buffer between DWT and SPIHT to 50 %. Simulation results show that our EC algorithm present only PSNR degradation of 0.179 and 0.162 dB in average when the target bit-rate of the video coder are 1 and 0.5 bpp, respectively.

Traditional music should be succeeded and developed through the systematic education since music represents culture and history of one country. In Korea, even through the importance of Korean traditional music has been emphasized through the seven times of revision of national curriculum, music education has been still Western-oriented. This study aims to make students have experience Uttari Samul-nori and investigate the perception changes about the Korean traditional music. It is ultimately expected that students inherit the Korean traditional music and further recreate our own traditional culture. Samul-nori class was organized in the regular music curriculum twice a week, for 10 hours and various activities were tried during that time. 1st-year high school students participated in this research and they were allowed to play Samul instruments directly and play the basic rhythm suggested in the newly designed curriculum. Before and after the research, the questionnaires were sent to examine the attitude changes toward the Korean traditional music. The result of the questionnaire are as follows: First, Samul-nori activities affect positively the students' interest in the Korean traditional music and Samul-nori itself. Second, Danso(short bamboo flute) education which has been implemented most frequently during the Korean music education, is not satisfactory to the students. Third, students were satisfied with the new teaching method of Samul-nori and most students wanted to continue to take Samul-nori class. Last, students recognized the importance of Korean traditional music education after the research activities.

DOI : 10.5392/JKCA.2012.12.03.214
In recent years, some researchers reported that myofascia was innervated by the autonomic nervous system. However, there is no neurophysiological explanation and evidence for the effects of myofascial release(MFR). Thus, the aim of this study was to determine whether the excitability of the autonomic nervous system is modulated by MFR. In this study, thirty healthy subjects in their 20s were randomly assigned to a myofascial release group(MG) and a placebo control group(PCG); each group had 15 subjects. The MG conducted 5 minutes of cranial base release in supine position, and the PCG performed sham cranial base release. Muscle flexibility was measured with the neck range of motion and the changes of the autonomic nervous system excitability was measured by heart rate, blood pressure, and concentration of plasma epinephrine and norepinephrine. The results were as follows: 1. The percentage changes in the cervical range of motion for extension and side flexion were significantly increased in the MG, signifying that more muscle relaxation. 2. There was no significant percentage changes in heart rate, blood pressure, and concentration plasma epinephrine between MG and PCG. 3. The percentage change in concentration plasma norepinephrine was significantly different between MG and PCG. The result of this study suggests that there is no evidence that MFR can modulate the autonomic nervous system excitability.

AMGA service, which is one of the EMI gLite middleware components, is widely used for analysis of distributed large scale experiments data as metadata repository by scientific and technological researchers and the use of AMGA is extended farther to include general industries needing metadata Catalogue as well. However AMGA, based unix and Grid UI, has the weakness of being absence of general-purpose user interfaces in comparison to other commercial database systems and that's why it's difficult to use and diffuse it although it has the superiority of the functionality. In this paper, we developed AMGA GUI toolkit to provide work convenience using object-oriented modeling language(UML). Currently, AMGA has been used as the main component among many user communities such as Belle II, WISDOM, MDM, and so on, but we expect that this development can not only lower the barrier to entry for AMGA beginners to use it, but lead to expand the use of AMGA service over more communities.

An analytic solution to the extended mild-slope equation was derived for waves propagating over an axi-symmetric pit. The water depth inside the pit was in proportion to a power of radial distance from the center of pit. The equation was transformed into the ordinary differential equation using the method of separation of variables. The coefficients of differential terms were expressed as an explicit form composing of the phase and group velocities. The bottom curvature and the square of bottom slope terms, which were added to the extended mild-slope equation, were expressed as power series. Finally, using the Frobenius series, the analytic solution to the extended mild-slope equation was derived. The present analytic solution was validated by comparing with the numerical solution obtained from FEM.
