Kim, Jinwoo ;
Journal of Korea Multimedia Society, volume 17, issue 2, 2014, Pages 113~123

Electrophysiological recordings are considered a reliable method of assessing a person`s alertness. Sleep medicine is asked to offer objective methods to measure daytime alertness, tiredness and sleepiness. As EEG signals are non-stationary, the conventional method of frequency analysis is not highly successful in recognition of alertness level. In this paper, EEG signals have been analyzed using wavelet transform as well as discrete wavelet transform and classification using statistical classifiers such as euclidean and mahalanobis distance classifiers and a promising method SVM (Support Vector Machine). As a result of simulation, the average values of accuracies for the Linear Discriminant Analysis (LDA)-Quadratic, k-Nearest Neighbors (k-NN)-Euclidean, and Linear SVM were 48%, 34.2%, and 86%, respectively. The experimental results show that SVM classification method offer the better performance for reliable classification of the EEG signal in comparison with the other classification methods.

Journal of Korea Multimedia Society, volume 17, issue 2, 2014, Pages 124~131
DOI : 10.9717/kmms.2014.17.2.124
In this paper, we propose the non-contact gesture recognition algorithm using 4- channel electrometer sensor array. ELF(Extremely Low Frequency) EMI and PLN are minimized because ambient electromagnetic noise around sensors has a significant impact on entire data in indoor environments. In this study, we transform AC-type data into DC-type data by applying a 10Hz LPF as well as a maximum buffer value extracting algorithm considering H/W sampling rate. In addition, we minimize the noise with the Kalman filter and extract 2-dimensional movement information by taking difference value between two cross-diagonal deployed sensors. We implemented the DTW gesture recognition algorithm using extracted data and the time delayed information of peak values. Our experiment results show that average correct classification rate is over 95% on five-gesture scenario.

Stereo camera is drawing attention as an essential sensor for future intelligence robot system since it has the advantage of acquiring not only distance but also other additive information for an object. However, it cannot match correlated point on target image for low textured region or periodic patterned region such as wall of building or room. In this paper, we propose a stereo matching technique that increase the matching performance by fusing belief propagation stereo matching algorithm and local distance measurements of 2D-laser range finder in order to overcome this kind of limitation. The proposed technique adds laser measurements by referring quad-tree based segment information on to the local-evidence of belief propagation stereo matching algorithm, and calculates compatibility function by reflecting over-segmented information. Experimental results of the proposed method using simulation and real test images show that the distance information for some low textured region can be acquired and the discontinuity of depth information is preserved by using segmentation information.

Kim, Jaemin ; Yeon, Sungho ;
Journal of Korea Multimedia Society, volume 17, issue 2, 2014, Pages 143~151
DOI : 10.9717/kmms.2014.17.2.143
In images degraded by bad weather, edges representing object boundaries become weak and faint. In this paper we present an image enhancement method, which increases image visibility by making edges as clear as possible. First, we choose edge candidate regions by finding local maxima and minima in an image intensity field, and then build a histogram using image intensities of pixels located at the two sides of candidate edges. Second, we decompose this histogram into multiple modes, which are determined by local minima in the histogram. Once modes are computed, we find modes connected by edges in the image intensity field and build link chains of connected modes. Finally we choose the longest link chain of modes and make the distances between every connected modes as large as possible. The darkest mode and the brightest mode should be within the image intensity range. This stretch makes edges clear and increases image visibility. Experiments show that the proposed method real-time enhances images degraded by bad weather as good as well known time-consuming methods.

Recently. utilization of remote sensing exploration and cloud computing has been extended to efficient measurement, store, and update of bathymetry map data according to cloud computing technology. In the field of real ocean, water depth measurements and measurement data management, distribution, and display equipment for the development and dissemination have generated a lot of time and cost. To improve these problems, through real-time three-dimensional display system at this location, we can determine the importance of measurement activities, and reduce the time and cost of measurement activities. Data measured from marine probe vessels and remote sensing exploration equipments and other various channels can be handled and managed. In this paper, we propose a realtime three-dimensional display system through the depth measurements from remote sensing exploration. The proposed real-time three-dimensional display system can be effectively applied in the field of measurement of the topographical survey of the land as well as bathymetry of the sea.

DOI : 10.9717/kmms.2014.17.2.170
Recently the U-Healthcare system has been rapidly advanced to manage emergence rescue for seniors. We can access emergency rescue systems with high quality services anytime, anywhere under ubiquitous healthcare systems. The more the various systems develop, the more software security systems become important. Therefore, the safety-critical system has been widely spread to the world by advancement of the information and communication technologies. There are a lot kind of fault analysis methods to evaluate software security systems. However due to characteristics of software that is not applied by human error, it can be prevented the enormous damages and losses from improving the safety of safety-critical system. So this paper proposes an integration method of FTA and Forward and Backward FMECA. This method has each strength of FTA and FMECA which is visual and numeric in normalization. First, by use of FTA, we can redraw FTA with Forward FMECA and Backward FMECA in consideration of occurrence, severity, detection, correctness, robustness, and security. Also according to value of NRVP at each event, we can modify FTA diagrams as shown critical paths given by severity and occurrence. Also, we propose the improved emergency rescue service platform of ubiquitous healthcare systems through identifying priorities of the criticality according to normalized risk priority values (NRPV).

Lee, Won Yeoul ; Lee, Wan-Jik ;
Journal of Korea Multimedia Society, volume 17, issue 2, 2014, Pages 191~199
DOI : 10.9717/kmms.2014.17.2.191
The unicasting routing technology of VANET is very important for user convenience. Unicasting packets must be forwarded to the appropriate path in order to arrive to the destination. However, there are so many problems because the vehicle nodes have limited information related to the routing decision. In particular, packet delivery failure will be occurred by selecting the path already failed again. We call this problem as `Failed Path Re-Selection Problem`. In this paper, we propose an enhanced rerouting function of VANET Routing. The proposed rerouting function uses the failed path information when rerouting function executed. For this rerouting function, failed path information will be stored in the packet whenever the routing fail occurred. By the comparison with the performance of legacy VANET routing function, the superiority of the proposed method can be seen.

Blood pressure (BP) is an important vital signal for determining the health of an individual subject. Although estimation of mean arterial blood pressure is possible using oscillometric blood pressure techniques, there are no established techniques in the literature for obtaining confidence interval (CI) for systolic blood pressure (SBP) and diastolic blood pressure (DBP) estimates obtained from such BP measurements. This paper proposes a nonparametric bootstrap technique to obtain CI with a small number of the BP measurements. The proposed algorithm uses pseudo measurements employing nonparametric bootstrap technique to derive the pseudo maximum amplitudes (PMA) and the pseudo envelopes (PE). The SBP and DBP are then derived using the new relationships between PMA and PE and the CIs for such estimates. Application of the proposed method on an experimental dataset of 85 patients with five sets of measurements for each patient has yielded a smaller Cl than the conventional student t-method.

DOI : 10.9717/kmms.2014.17.2.208
This paper propose an adaptive control of symmetry contribution based generalized symmetry transform. which can be controlled symmetry contribution according to the intensity orientation of two pixels. In the proposed method, we define the C-D(convergent and divergent)plane which represents convergence and divergence region of gradient pairs. and used the gaussian phase wight function, with respect to the distance from the gradient pair to an extreme point, in calculating the symmetry contribution. The proposed method can be detect the object more efficiently by adaptive controlling the cut-off frequency of the gaussian phase wight function. To evaluate a performance of the proposed method, we compare the proposed method and conventional GST method in various images including IR image. we prove that the proposed method have better performance in object detection.

Lim, Joa-Sang ; Kim, Jin-Man ;
Journal of Korea Multimedia Society, volume 17, issue 2, 2014, Pages 232~239
DOI : 10.9717/kmms.2014.17.2.232
As online texts have been rapidly growing, their automatic classification gains more interest with machine learning methods. Nevertheless, comparatively few research could be found, aiming for Korean texts. Evaluating them with statistical methods are also rare. This study took a sample of tweets and used machine learning methods to classify emotions with features of morphemes and n-grams. As a result, about 76% of emotions contained in tweets was correctly classified. Of the two methods compared in this study, Support Vector Machines were found more accurate than Na
ve Bayes. The linear model of SVM was not inferior to the non-linear one. Morphological features did not contribute to accuracy more than did the n-grams.

Data which is created and shared on the Web is characterized by the massive amount of user generated content on various applications and dynamically evolving content on the basis of user interests. Thus, in order to benefit from Web data, it is essential to provide (a) the mechanisms which enable scalable processing of large data collections and (b) the organization schemes which reduce the navigational overhead within complex and dynamically growing content. Between these two impending needs, in this paper, we are interested in developing an indexing scheme which aims to reduce the time and effort needed to access the relevant piece of information by leveraging ontologies. In particular, considering evolving nature of Web contents, the proposed technique in this paper computes the sub-ontology, which best matches a given data collection, from the existing large size of ontology. Case studies show that the proposed indexing scheme in this paper indeed helps organize dynamically evolving content.
