    Qunyue Mu1,2, Qiancheng Yu1,2,*, Chengchen Zhou1,2, Lei Liu1,2, Xulong Yu1,2

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.80, No.1, pp. 449-466, 2024, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2024.051728

    Abstract Wearing helmets while riding electric bicycles can significantly reduce head injuries resulting from traffic accidents. To effectively monitor compliance, the utilization of target detection algorithms through traffic cameras plays a vital role in identifying helmet usage by electric bicycle riders and recognizing license plates on electric bicycles. However, manual enforcement by traffic police is time-consuming and labor-intensive. Traditional methods face challenges in accurately identifying small targets such as helmets and license plates using deep learning techniques. This paper proposes an enhanced model for detecting helmets and license plates on electric bicycles, addressing these challenges. The More >

    Computer Systems Science and Engineering, Vol.48, No.4, pp. 1009-1029, 2024, DOI:10.32604/csse.2023.040475

    Abstract Nowadays, construction site safety accidents are frequent, and wearing safety helmets is essential to prevent head injuries caused by object collisions and falls. However, existing helmet detection algorithms have several drawbacks, including a complex structure with many parameters, high calculation volume, and poor detection of small helmets, making deployment on embedded or mobile devices difficult. To address these challenges, this paper proposes a YOLOv5-based multi-head detection safety helmet detection algorithm that is faster and more robust for detecting helmets on construction sites.

    Joint Rain Streaks & Haze Removal Network for Object Detection

    Ragini Thatikonda1, Prakash Kodali1,*, Ramalingaswamy Cheruku2, Eswaramoorthy K.V3

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.79, No.3, pp. 4683-4702, 2024, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2024.051844

    Abstract In the realm of low-level vision tasks, such as image deraining and dehazing, restoring images distorted by adverse weather conditions remains a significant challenge. The emergence of abundant computational resources has driven the dominance of deep Convolutional Neural Networks (CNNs), supplanting traditional methods reliant on prior knowledge. However, the evolution of CNN architectures has tended towards increasing complexity, utilizing intricate structures to enhance performance, often at the expense of computational efficiency. In response, we propose the Selective Kernel Dense Residual M-shaped Network (SKDRMNet), a flexible solution adept at balancing computational efficiency with network accuracy. A… More >

    Probability-Enhanced Anchor-Free Detector for Remote-Sensing Object Detection

    Chengcheng Fan1,2,*, Zhiruo Fang3

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.79, No.3, pp. 4925-4943, 2024, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2024.049710

    Abstract Anchor-free object-detection methods achieve a significant advancement in field of computer vision, particularly in the realm of real-time inferences. However, in remote sensing object detection, anchor-free methods often lack of capability in separating the foreground and background. This paper proposes an anchor-free method named probability-enhanced anchor-free detector (ProEnDet) for remote sensing object detection. First, a weighted bidirectional feature pyramid is used for feature extraction. Second, we introduce probability enhancement to strengthen the classification of the object’s foreground and background. The detector uses the logarithm likelihood as the final score to improve the classification of the More >
