    Mingze Li, Diwen Zheng, Shuhua Lu*

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.79, No.2, pp. 2105-2122, 2024, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2024.048928

    Abstract Crowd counting is a promising hotspot of computer vision involving crowd intelligence analysis, achieving tremendous success recently with the development of deep learning. However, there have been still many challenges including crowd multi-scale variations and high network complexity, etc. To tackle these issues, a lightweight Res-connection multi-branch network (LRMBNet) for highly accurate crowd counting and localization is proposed. Specifically, using improved ShuffleNet V2 as the backbone, a lightweight shallow extractor has been designed by employing the channel compression mechanism to reduce enormously the number of network parameters. A light multi-branch structure with different expansion rate convolutions is demonstrated to extract… More >

    Syed Ayaz Ali Shah1,*, Aamir Shahzad1,*, Musaed Alhussein2, Chuan Meng Goh3, Khursheed Aurangzeb2, Tong Boon Tang4, Muhammad Awais5

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.79, No.2, pp. 2565-2583, 2024, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2024.047597

    Abstract Diagnosing various diseases such as glaucoma, age-related macular degeneration, cardiovascular conditions, and diabetic retinopathy involves segmenting retinal blood vessels. The task is particularly challenging when dealing with color fundus images due to issues like non-uniform illumination, low contrast, and variations in vessel appearance, especially in the presence of different pathologies. Furthermore, the speed of the retinal vessel segmentation system is of utmost importance. With the surge of now available big data, the speed of the algorithm becomes increasingly important, carrying almost equivalent weightage to the accuracy of the algorithm. To address these challenges, we present a novel approach for retinal… More > Graphic Abstract

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.79, No.2, pp. 3261-3298, 2024, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2024.044890

    Abstract This study comprehensively examines the current state of deep learning (DL) usage in indoor positioning. It emphasizes the significance and efficiency of convolutional neural networks (CNNs) and recurrent neural networks (RNNs). Unlike prior studies focused on single sensor modalities like Wi-Fi or Bluetooth, this research explores the integration of multiple sensor modalities (e.g., Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Ultra-Wideband, ZigBee) to expand indoor localization methods, particularly in obstructed environments. It addresses the challenge of precise object localization, introducing a novel hybrid DL approach using received signal information (RSI), Received Signal Strength (RSS), and Channel State Information (CSI) data to enhance accuracy and stability.… More >

    Kranthi Alluri, S. Gopikrishnan*

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.79, No.1, pp. 943-961, 2024, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2024.048621

    Abstract Secure authentication and accurate localization among Internet of Things (IoT) sensors are pivotal for the functionality and integrity of IoT networks. IoT authentication and localization are intricate and symbiotic, impacting both the security and operational functionality of IoT systems. Hence, accurate localization and lightweight authentication on resource-constrained IoT devices pose several challenges. To overcome these challenges, recent approaches have used encryption techniques with well-known key infrastructures. However, these methods are inefficient due to the increasing number of data breaches in their localization approaches. This proposed research efficiently integrates authentication and localization processes in such a way that they complement each… More >

    Scheme Based on Multi-Level Patch Attention and Lesion Localization for Diabetic Retinopathy Grading

    Zhuoqun Xia1, Hangyu Hu1, Wenjing Li2,3, Qisheng Jiang1, Lan Pu1, Yicong Shu1, Arun Kumar Sangaiah4,5,*

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.140, No.1, pp. 409-430, 2024, DOI:10.32604/cmes.2024.030052

    Abstract Early screening of diabetes retinopathy (DR) plays an important role in preventing irreversible blindness. Existing research has failed to fully explore effective DR lesion information in fundus maps. Besides, traditional attention schemes have not considered the impact of lesion type differences on grading, resulting in unreasonable extraction of important lesion features. Therefore, this paper proposes a DR diagnosis scheme that integrates a multi-level patch attention generator (MPAG) and a lesion localization module (LLM). Firstly, MPAG is used to predict patches of different sizes and generate a weighted attention map based on the prediction score and the types of lesions contained… More >

    A Real-Time Localization Algorithm for Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Based on Continuous Images Processing

    Peng Geng1,*, Annan Yang2, Yan Liu3

    Journal on Artificial Intelligence, Vol.6, pp. 43-52, 2024, DOI:10.32604/jai.2024.047642

    Abstract This article presents a real-time localization method for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) based on continuous image processing. The proposed method employs the Scale Invariant Feature Transform (SIFT) algorithm to identify key points in multi-scale space and generate descriptor vectors to match identical objects across multiple images. These corresponding points in the image provide pixel positions, which can be combined with transformation equations, allow for the calculation of the UAV’s actual ground position. Additionally, the physical coordinates of matching points in the image can be obtained, corresponding to the UAV’s physical coordinates. The method achieves real-time positioning and tracking during UAV… More >

    Maximum Correntropy Criterion-Based UKF for Loosely Coupling INS and UWB in Indoor Localization

    Yan Wang*, You Lu, Yuqing Zhou, Zhijian Zhao

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.139, No.3, pp. 2673-2703, 2024, DOI:10.32604/cmes.2023.046743

    Abstract Indoor positioning is a key technology in today’s intelligent environments, and it plays a crucial role in many application areas. This paper proposed an unscented Kalman filter (UKF) based on the maximum correntropy criterion (MCC) instead of the minimum mean square error criterion (MMSE). This innovative approach is applied to the loose coupling of the Inertial Navigation System (INS) and Ultra-Wideband (UWB). By introducing the maximum correntropy criterion, the MCCUKF algorithm dynamically adjusts the covariance matrices of the system noise and the measurement noise, thus enhancing its adaptability to diverse environmental localization requirements. Particularly in the presence of non-Gaussian noise,… More >

    Adaptive Segmentation for Unconstrained Iris Recognition

    Mustafa AlRifaee1, Sally Almanasra2,*, Adnan Hnaif3, Ahmad Althunibat3, Mohammad Abdallah3, Thamer Alrawashdeh3

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.78, No.2, pp. 1591-1609, 2024, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2023.043520

    Abstract In standard iris recognition systems, a cooperative imaging framework is employed that includes a light source with a near-infrared wavelength to reveal iris texture, look-and-stare constraints, and a close distance requirement to the capture device. When these conditions are relaxed, the system’s performance significantly deteriorates due to segmentation and feature extraction problems. Herein, a novel segmentation algorithm is proposed to correctly detect the pupil and limbus boundaries of iris images captured in unconstrained environments. First, the algorithm scans the whole iris image in the Hue Saturation Value (HSV) color space for local maxima to detect the sclera region. The image… More >

    Thi-Kien Dao1, Trong-The Nguyen1,2,*

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.138, No.3, pp. 2201-2237, 2024, DOI:10.32604/cmes.2023.029880

    Abstract Localization or positioning scheme in Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) is one of the most challenging and fundamental operations in various monitoring or tracking applications because the network deploys a large area and allocates the acquired location information to unknown devices. The metaheuristic approach is one of the most advantageous ways to deal with this challenging issue and overcome the disadvantages of the traditional methods that often suffer from computational time problems and small network deployment scale. This study proposes an enhanced whale optimization algorithm that is an advanced metaheuristic algorithm based on the siege mechanism (SWOA) for node localization in… More >
