    Investigation of Inside-Out Tracking Methods for Six Degrees of Freedom Pose Estimation of a Smartphone in Augmented Reality

    Chanho Park1, Takefumi Ogawa2,*

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.79, No.2, pp. 3047-3065, 2024, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2024.048901

    Abstract Six degrees of freedom (6DoF) input interfaces are essential for manipulating virtual objects through translation or rotation in three-dimensional (3D) space. A traditional outside-in tracking controller requires the installation of expensive hardware in advance. While inside-out tracking controllers have been proposed, they often suffer from limitations such as interaction limited to the tracking range of the sensor (e.g., a sensor on the head-mounted display (HMD)) or the need for pose value modification to function as an input interface (e.g., a sensor on the controller). This study investigates 6DoF pose estimation methods without restricting the tracking range, using a smartphone as… More >

    A Layered Energy-Efficient Multi-Node Scheduling Mechanism for Large-Scale WSN

    Xue Zhao, Shaojun Tao, Hongying Tang, Jiang Wang*, Baoqing Li*

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.79, No.1, pp. 1335-1351, 2024, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2024.047996

    Abstract In recent years, target tracking has been considered one of the most important applications of wireless sensor network (WSN). Optimizing target tracking performance and prolonging network lifetime are two equally critical objectives in this scenario. The existing mechanisms still have weaknesses in balancing the two demands. The proposed heuristic multi-node collaborative scheduling mechanism (HMNCS) comprises cluster head (CH) election, pre-selection, and task set selection mechanisms, where the latter two kinds of selections form a two-layer selection mechanism. The CH election innovatively introduces the movement trend of the target and establishes a scoring mechanism to determine the optimal CH, which can… More >

    Road Traffic Monitoring from Aerial Images Using Template Matching and Invariant Features

    Asifa Mehmood Qureshi1, Naif Al Mudawi2, Mohammed Alonazi3, Samia Allaoua Chelloug4, Jeongmin Park5,*

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.78, No.3, pp. 3683-3701, 2024, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2024.043611

    Abstract Road traffic monitoring is an imperative topic widely discussed among researchers. Systems used to monitor traffic frequently rely on cameras mounted on bridges or roadsides. However, aerial images provide the flexibility to use mobile platforms to detect the location and motion of the vehicle over a larger area. To this end, different models have shown the ability to recognize and track vehicles. However, these methods are not mature enough to produce accurate results in complex road scenes. Therefore, this paper presents an algorithm that combines state-of-the-art techniques for identifying and tracking vehicles in conjunction with image bursts. The extracted frames… More >

    Research on the MPPT of Photovoltaic Power Generation Based on Improved WOA and P&O under Partial Shading Conditions

    Jian Zhong, Lei Zhang*, Ling Qin

    Energy Engineering, Vol.121, No.4, pp. 951-971, 2024, DOI:10.32604/ee.2023.041433

    Abstract Partial shading conditions (PSCs) caused by uneven illumination become one of the most common problems in photovoltaic (PV) systems, which can make the PV power-voltage (P-V) characteristics curve show multi-peaks. Traditional maximum power point tracking (MPPT) methods have shortcomings in tracking to the global maximum power point (GMPP), resulting in a dramatic decrease in output power. In order to solve the above problems, intelligent algorithms are used in MPPT. However, the existing intelligent algorithms have some disadvantages, such as slow convergence speed and large search oscillation. Therefore, an improved whale algorithm (IWOA) combined with the P&O (IWOA-P&O) is proposed for… More >

    A New Flower Pollination Algorithm Strategy for MPPT of Partially Shaded Photovoltaic Arrays

    Muhannad J. Alshareef*

    Intelligent Automation & Soft Computing, Vol.38, No.3, pp. 297-313, 2023, DOI:10.32604/iasc.2023.046722

    Abstract Photovoltaic (PV) systems utilize maximum power point tracking (MPPT) controllers to optimize power output amidst varying environmental conditions. However, the presence of multiple peaks resulting from partial shading poses a challenge to the tracking operation. Under partial shade conditions, the global maximum power point (GMPP) may be missed by most traditional maximum power point tracker. The flower pollination algorithm (FPA) and particle swarm optimization (PSO) are two examples of metaheuristic techniques that can be used to solve the issue of failing to track the GMPP. This paper discusses and resolves all issues associated with using the standard FPA method as… More >

    Enhancing Identity Protection in Metaverse-Based Psychological Counseling System

    Jun Lee1, Hanna Lee2, Seong Chan Lee2, Hyun Kwon3,*

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.78, No.1, pp. 617-632, 2024, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2023.045768

    Abstract Non-face-to-face psychological counseling systems rely on network technologies to anonymize information regarding client identity. However, these systems often face challenges concerning voice data leaks and the suboptimal communication of the client’s non-verbal expressions, such as facial cues, to the counselor. This study proposes a metaverse-based psychological counseling system designed to enhance client identity protection while ensuring efficient information delivery to counselors during non-face-to-face counseling. The proposed system incorporates a voice modulation function that instantly modifies/masks the client’s voice to safeguard their identity. Additionally, it employs real-time client facial expression recognition using an ensemble of decision trees to mirror the client’s… More >

    Multiple-Object Tracking Using Histogram Stamp Extraction in CCTV Environments

    Ye-Yeon Kang1, Geon Park1, Hyun Yoo2, Kyungyong Chung1,*

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.77, No.3, pp. 3619-3635, 2023, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2023.043566

    Abstract Object tracking, an important technology in the field of image processing and computer vision, is used to continuously track a specific object or person in an image. This technology may be effective in identifying the same person within one image, but it has limitations in handling multiple images owing to the difficulty in identifying whether the object appearing in other images is the same. When tracking the same object using two or more images, there must be a way to determine that objects existing in different images are the same object. Therefore, this paper attempts to determine the same object… More >

    Learning Dual-Domain Calibration and Distance-Driven Correlation Filter: A Probabilistic Perspective for UAV Tracking

    Taiyu Yan1, Yuxin Cao1, Guoxia Xu1, Xiaoran Zhao2, Hu Zhu1, Lizhen Deng3,*

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.77, No.3, pp. 3741-3764, 2023, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2023.039828

    Abstract Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) tracking has been possible because of the growth of intelligent information technology in smart cities, making it simple to gather data at any time by dynamically monitoring events, people, the environment, and other aspects in the city. The traditional filter creates a model to address the boundary effect and time filter degradation issues in UAV tracking operations. But these methods ignore the loss of data integrity terms since they are overly dependent on numerous explicit previous regularization terms. In light of the aforementioned issues, this work suggests a dual-domain Jensen-Shannon divergence correlation filter (DJSCF) model address… More >

    Shadow Extraction and Elimination of Moving Vehicles for Tracking Vehicles

    Kalpesh Jadav1, Vishal Sorathiya1,*, Walid El-Shafai2, Torki Altameem3, Moustafa H. Aly4, Vipul Vekariya5, Kawsar Ahmed6, Francis M. Bui6

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.77, No.2, pp. 2009-2030, 2023, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2023.043168

    Abstract Shadow extraction and elimination is essential for intelligent transportation systems (ITS) in vehicle tracking application. The shadow is the source of error for vehicle detection, which causes misclassification of vehicles and a high false alarm rate in the research of vehicle counting, vehicle detection, vehicle tracking, and classification. Most of the existing research is on shadow extraction of moving vehicles in high intensity and on standard datasets, but the process of extracting shadows from moving vehicles in low light of real scenes is difficult. The real scenes of vehicles dataset are generated by self on the Vadodara–Mumbai highway during periods… More >
