  • A Total Variation Denoising Method Based on Median Filter and Phase
    • Abstract: Abstract The total variation method is widely used in image noise suppression. However, this method is easy to cause the loss of image details because of over-smoothing, so it is sensitive to the value of parameters. In this work, the total variation method has been modified using a diffusion rate adjuster based on the phase congruency and a fusion filter of median filter and phase consistency boundary, which is called “the MPC-TV method”. Experimental results indicate that MPC-TV method is effective in noise suppression, especially for the removing of speckle noise. It can prevent the image from over-smoothing, especially when the iteration time is larger than the best value. Therefore, it helps to improve the robustness of parameters of TV method to noise variance.

  • Rolling Guidance Filtering-Orientated Saliency Region Extraction Method
           for Visible and Infrared Images Fusion
    • Abstract: Abstract Different image types can be obtained by different sensors, but all the useful information cannot be extracted from a single image. Infrared images can capture the heat source information of scene targets in low light or severe weather conditions. Visible images provide more detail information about the scene. To obtain the rich image information, we propose a visible and infrared images fusion method based on rolling guidance filtering and saliency region extraction in this paper. A multi-scale image decomposition framework is built by using the edge preserving-smoothing algorithm. The image is decomposed into one base layer with different scales and several detail layers. Meanwhile, the saliency region extraction is implemented on each decomposition layer by combining with the rolling guidance filtering. Weight reconstruction is adopted to obtain the final fusion result. The results show that the proposed algorithm has good subjective and objective evaluation results, better fusion performance and robustness compared to other state-of-the-art fusion methods.

  • Comparative Analysis of SVM and ANN Classifiers using Multilevel Fusion of
           Multi-Sensor Data in Urban Land Classification
    • Abstract: Abstract Multi-sensor data fusion has recently received remarkably more attraction in urban land classification. The fusion of multi-resolution and multi-sensor remote sensing data can help in comprehending more information about the same land cover features, thereby, enhancing the classification accuracy. In this field of study, a combination of hyperspectral data in a long-wave infrared range and a very high-resolution data in a visible range has been extensively used for exploring the spectral and spatial features for decision level fusion classification. This paper proposes a novel method of integrating the classifier decisions with the additional ancillary information derived from spectral and spatial features for improvement in the classification accuracy of natural and man-made objects in urban land cover. The paper also presents a detailed performance comparative evaluation of two classifiers i.e., support vector machine (SVM) and artificial neural network (ANN) to show the effectiveness of these classifiers. The results obtained from a decision-based multilevel fusion of spectral and spatial information using hyperspectral and visible data have shown improvement in classification accuracy. The results also reveal that the classification accuracy of the SVM classifier is better than ANN in multi-sensor data using decision level fusion of combined feature set analysis.

  • Hyperspectral Image Classification Based on Segmented Local Binary
    • Abstract: Abstract Recently, local binary patterns (LBP) coupled with principal component analysis has been developed for feature extraction of hyperspectral imagery, which has shown success over traditional methods but is limited in physical meaning representation due to the noise bands existing in hyperspectral data. In order to preserve the intrinsic geometrical structure of original data, we propose a segmented LBP (SLBP) to group correlative bands and then extract spatial-spectral features from each band group. The proposed approach employs the LBP operator on independent subspaces to characterize local texture information and distinct spectral signatures, along with a decision fusion system further improving discriminant power. The proposed approach is compared with several traditional and state-of-the-art methods on two benchmark datasets (i.e., the Indian Pines dataset and the Salinas Valley dataset). Experimental results demonstrate that the proposed SLBP strategy can yield superior classification performance (96.8% for the Indian Pines dataset with an improvement of approximately 6.4% and 4.2% when compared with LBP and MELBP, respectively; 98.1% for the Salinas Valley dataset with an improvement of approximately 3.5% and 1.3% compared with LBP and MELBP, respectively).

  • Fixed Pattern Noise Analysis for Feature Descriptors in CMOS APS Images
    • Abstract: Abstract This paper provides a comparative performance evaluation of local features for images from CMOS APS sensors affected by fixed pattern noise for different combinations of common detectors and descriptors. Although numerous studies report comparisons of local features designed for ordinary visual images, their performance on images with fixed pattern noise is far less assessed. The goal of this work is to develop a tool that allows to evaluate the performance of computer vision algorithms and their implementations subject to deviations of the physical parameters of the CMOS sensor. This tool will facilitate the quantification of the high-level effects produced by circuit random noise, enabling the optimization of the sensor during the design flow with specifications much closer to the application scope. Likewise, this tool will provide the electronic designer with a relationship between high-level algorithm accuracy and maximum fixed pattern noise. Thus the contribution is double: (1) to evaluate the performance of both local float type and more recent binary type detectors and descriptors when combined under a variety of image transformations, and (2) to extract relevant information from circuit-level simulation and to develop a basic noise model to be employed in the design of the feature descriptor evaluation. The utility of this approach is illustrated by the evaluation of the effect of column-wise and pixel-wise fixed pattern noise at the sensor on the performance of different local feature descriptors.

  • Efficient Transmission of an Encrypted Image Through a MIMO–OFDM System
           with Different Encryption Schemes
    • Abstract: Abstract In today’s world, broadband multimedia services are growing at a rapid pace. It is very much essential to secure data in financial, defense, health care, government, and marketing services. To ensure the data from eavesdroppers, the physical layer security (channel coding, modulation schemes, and diversity techniques, etc.) is one of the best solutions. The security attributes at this level reduce maintenance, operational cost, and complexity without affecting the quality of service. Physical layer security with cryptographic techniques makes it well suited for transferring multimedia data through unsecure or potentially risky communication (wired and wireless) path. To provide security attributes to an image/data, one needs to protect the transmitted data from unauthorized access. Several encryption algorithms have been proposed to ensure confidentiality and security for multimedia data over an insecure wireless channel. Cryptography techniques do not involve any system complexity but add a little computation complexity. Use of advanced processors mitigates the computational burden. In this paper, efficient transmission of an encrypted image through a multiple-input multiple-output orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (MIMO–OFDM) system over an additive white Gaussian noise channel with different encryption schemes is presented. The advanced encryption standard (AES), data encryption standard (DES), and Rubik’s Cube encryption algorithms are incorporated to improve security aspects. The comparison aims to select the most appropriate wireless communication systems (2 × 2 MIMO–OFDM and 4 × 4 MIMO–OFDM), and the most suitable image encryption algorithm for efficient transmission of the encrypted image. The quality of the received image is evaluated using the peak signal-to-noise ratio between the original and decrypted image at different signal-to-noise (SNR) ratio. Performance estimates of the cryptosystems are also provided by computing the bit-error-rate at different SNR. The Performance estimates of encryption algorithms (irrespective of the MIMO–OFDM system) are also included, which consists of various performance metrics. The metrics are histogram, entropy, correlation coefficient, number of changing pixel rate, and unified averaged changed intensity. From the MATLAB simulation experiments, it is observed that the performance of 4 × 4 Crypto-MIMO–OFDM system configurations outperformed 2 × 2 Crypto-MIMO–OFDM system configurations. The performance of the Crypto-MIMO–OFDM system is compared with the original MIMO–OFDM system performance without encryption algorithm. For all variants of Crypto-MIMO–OFDM systems, the use of Rubik’s Cube encryption algorithm shows significant improvement over DES and AES.

  • A New Technique for Improving the Estimation of a Reflective Optical Color
    • Abstract: Abstract This paper proposes and experimentally demonstrates a novel technique of a precise color estimation by using a low cost reflective optical color sensor. The digital output signal of this sensor is a pulses series with a frequency proportional to the intensity of the incident light. In this sensor, three independent detector output signals with optimized spectral responsiveness allow discrimination between red, green and blue (RGB) light spectral components. The analytical expressions for RGB absorption efficiencies, which detect the color information, have been derived. An experimental set-up has been designed to determine the color difference, involving design of a portable color analyzer with wired and wireless computer interface. The detailed description and implementation of each design element are presented, while a developed algorithm is also discussed. The proposed algorithm apply a linear transformation to realize standardized colorimetric RGB and CIE31-XYZ color space coordinates responses. To that end, a correlation of the sensor outputs is established, a wide band correction matrix in old estimations is replaced by many narrowband correction matrices and the CIE standard curves of wavelengths are extracted and used to select a suitable narrowband correction matrix. Also, the sequential algorithm has been parallelized to reduce the response time in multiple measurement applications which need the big data processing. The experimental results in the vision spectrum confirm the theoretical analysis. Based on the findings of this experiment, the proposed system constitutes a high resolution and low cost solution for various color-sensing applications and colorimetric fields.

  • Target detection using supervised machine learning algorithms for GPR data
    • Abstract: Abstract A novel approach of supervised machine learning technique is used in this paper to identify landmines. The work presented here has two contributions. First contribution is three features (major axis, minor axis and principal component analysis) based performance comparison of two machine learning technique: support vector machine classifier and neural network classifier. In the second contribution, a new method of extracting five features (mean, variance, kurtosis, skewness and entropy) is suggested. Support vector machine and neural network classifier are trained on three and five-feature data-set. Collection of ground penetrating radar images with surrogate landmines is done in our lab and a data-base of different feature set is created. In experiments, many surrogate mines and non-mines are considered at various depths for data collection. The performance of classifiers is compared on training and testing data-set. Out of the two classifiers, neural network classifier results with better accuracy of 85–90% for training data samples in both (three feature and five feature) analysis. Two trained classifiers are tested over twenty cases of unseen samples. Neural network classifier gives better results of 5–10% increased accuracy than support vector machine classifier over test set also.

  • Chaos Theory: An Emerging Tool for Arrhythmia Detection
    • Abstract: Abstract The heart is an important muscular organ of the human body which pumps blood throughout the body. It is essential for human life. Timely and accurate assessment of the functioning of the heart has great relevance for reducing the death rate due to cardiac diseases around the world. If the heart is not able to pump blood smoothly, then heart diseases are likely to appear. These heart diseases are known as arrhythmia. Electrocardiogram (ECG) is a diagnostic tool for assessing the functioning of heart non-invasively. It not only detects cardiovascular diseases, but also examines breathing pattern and mental stress. ECG appears in the form of an electrical signal that comprises of P-QRS-T waves and is captured by pasting electrodes on the surface of the skin in a conductive medium. Features of these wave components, such as clinical frequencies, heart rate (HR) measurement, RR interval measurement, spectral components, non-linearity, trajectory identification, and amplitudes, help doctors to diagnose cardiac arrhythmias accurately. This paper presents a computer aided diagnosis (CAD) system to extract non-linearity and trajectory patterns using the theory of chaos analysis to aid cardiologists diagnose arrhythmia accurately. ECG signal is non-stationary and non-linear in nature due to which it contains multiple time-varying frequencies. So a more reliable and accurate technique like time–frequency transform such as short-time Fourier transform (STFT) etc. is needed. In this paper, STFT is used, which is an efficient technique to observe frequency contents of small non-linear segments in time domain. It is used to determine the sinusoidal frequency and phase content of the local sections of a signal. R-peak is very crucial for classifying cardiac arrhythmia. Therefore, STFT is used for detecting R-peaks and their frequency contents. Due to limited time–frequency resolution, STFT usually misses on some information. Therefore, there is a need of supplementing the existing research on the ECG signal interpretation by using non-linear techniques. These gaps have motivated us to use chaos theory (analysis) for ECG signal analysis. The non-linear techniques are expected to yield supplementary clues about the non-linearities in the considered segment. In chaos analysis, the sketched trajectories represent the flow of the system where each trajectory involves a subregion of the phase space known as an attractor. In phase space, set of points depicts complete status of the cardiac cycles through which the system migrates over time. An attractor showcases the best preview according to the initial conditions and time delay dimension. The shape of an attractor may be oval, egg-shaped, circular and in some cases corn-type. It increases the decision capability of the proposed system by identifying correct arrhythmia type. For validating this research work, physioNet database [Massachusetts Institute of Technology-Beth Israel Hospital Arrhythmia database (M-BArr DB), Ventricular Tachyarrhythmia database (VT DB)] and real time database (R T DB) have been used. The proposed technique has been evaluated on the basis of sensitivity (Se) and positive predictive value (PPV). Se of 99.92% and PPV of 99.93% are obtained for the considered databases (M-BArr DB, VT DB and RT DB). Chaos theory together with STFT has proved itself as a good approach that reduces the occurrence of spurious outcomes and has demonstrated the properties that are typical outlook of deterministic chaotic systems.

  • Intelligent Integration of Neutron, Density and Gamma Ray Data for
           Subsurface Characterization
    • Abstract: Abstract Earth subsurface recognition through describing the underground layers can be carried out using physical measurements to obtain clearer and more accurate subsurface model. This can be conducted applying well logging method. Among various information that can be provided by different well logging sensors, neutron, density and gamma-ray data are the most considerable in subsurface type determination. However, current analysis of these data stills a subjective task which adds a variable confidence interval to the obtained results. In this study, a real time decision level fusion system uses fuzzy logic approach is introduced to incorporate neutron, density, and gamma-ray information in order to provide more specific interpretation of the subsurface structures. Results of the proposed approach agreed well with the results of an offline subsurface determination program, with an average ratio of about 89.75%. The suggested approach was evaluated against real data from eight wells, and the results were promising to yield more objective interpretation.

  • Tone Mapping High Dynamic Range Images by Hessian Multiset Canonical
    • Abstract: Abstract Tone mapping algorithms reproduce high dynamic range (HDR) images on low dynamic range images in the standard display devices such as LCD, CRT, projectors, and printers. In this paper, we propose a statistical clustering-based tone mapping technique that would be able to adapt the local content of an image as well as its color. At first, the HDR image is partitioned into many overlapped color patches and we disintegrate each color patch into three segments: patch mean, color variation and color structure. Then based on the color structure component, the extracted color patches are clustered into a number of clusters by k-means clustering technique. For each cluster, the statistical signal processing technique namely Hessian multi set canonical correlations (HesMCC) has been produced to ascertain the transform matrix. Moreover, the HesMCC are fundamentally utilized for performing the dimensionality reduction of patches and to form effective tone mapped images. Contrasting with the current strategies, the procedures in the proposed clustering-based strategy can better adapt image color and its local structures by exploiting the image in the worldwide repetition. Experimental results show that the running time of the proposed method is less about 88.32%, 92%, 68.9%, and 29.4%, while comparing with other existing tone mapping methods.

  • Novel Neural Network Based CT-NSCT Watermarking Framework Based upon
           Kurtosis Coefficients
    • Abstract: Abstract In the research presented here, the novel neural network based watermarking framework is investigated in the area of transformation, while contourlet transform and nonsubsampled contourlet transform are realized to address the proposed idea via the Kurtosis to choose the band of suitable coefficients. It is to note that there are a number of techniques to deal with the aforementioned watermarking framework through the new integration of contourlet transform and nonsubsampled contourlet transform in connection with the perceptron neural network to extract the logo information, appropriately. There is the optimization technique through the genetic algorithm to provide the optimum results in the procedure of designing, as well. The approaches of the embedding and the de-embedding in case of learning algorithm of the neural network via individual training data set are considered in the present research to carry out a series of experiments with different scenario for the purpose of verifying the proposed techniques, obviously.

  • Application of Digital Processing in Relic Image Restoration Design
    • Abstract: Abstract Cultural relic is the carrier of human historic culture, which can reflect the cultural and social environment, but cultural relics as a material will be damaged over time. Before the advent of computer technology, the damaged cultural relics would not be repaired due to cost. Computer vision technology has been applied to the restoration of cultural relics, mainly for the virtual restoration of damaged cultural relics images. This paper briefly introduced the Criminisi image restoration algorithm and the structure tensor used to improve the algorithm in the digital cultural relics image restoration. A damaged cultural relics image and a complete image which was damaged by human were repaired respectively using the classical Criminisi image restoration algorithm and the improved structure tensor based repair algorithm on MATLAB software. The results showed that the Criminisi image restoration algorithm could be used to repair the damaged images of ancient fabrics. It was found that the classical image restoration algorithm had some shortcomings, such as inappropriate texture structure, obvious repair marks and addition of redundant information, but the improved algorithm effectively avoided the above shortcomings. The peak signal to noise ratio (SNR) of the complete image which was damaged by human was compared objectively, and it was found that the improved algorithm had better restoration performance.

  • New Plasmonic Biosensors for Determination of Human Hemoglobin
           Concentration in Blood
    • Abstract: Abstract Two new types of plasmonic biosensors are applied for detection of hemoglobin concentration in human blood by using the angular interrogation method. The first type of the fiber with five layers is made by a SiO2 core surrounded by GaP, gold, Al2O3 and hemoglobin layers. The second type of the fiber with six layers is made by a ZBLAN core surrounded by NaF, silicon, silver, Al2O3 and hemoglobin layers. For some thicknesses of the interior layers and for a hemoglobin concentration close to the mean value of a male human at a laser wavelength (1.53 μm), a large figure of merit and maximum value of the amplitude sensitivity are obtained at an angle very close to the resonance angle. For the second type of the sensor, 0.0036 g/dl resolution is obtained, which is 10% finer than the estimated detection limit (0.004 g/dl) reported very recently by using an electrochemical method. Also, our resolution is better than the previously reported value (0.006 g/dl if the angular resolution is 0.001°) by using a gold–aluminum-based surface plasmon resonance sensor.

  • Coverage Maximization in Wireless Sensor Networks Using Minimal Exposure
           Path and Particle Swarm Optimization
    • Abstract: Abstract The fundamental objective of deploying wireless sensors is to monitor a physical condition(s) within the desired region and relay the measured data to the interested parties through a gateway. However, achieving maximum coverage over the desired area after the initial random deployment of nodes is likely impossible. Arbitrary paths become exposed, uncovered by any of the sensor nodes questioning the quality of service of the network. In our proposed coverage maximization scheme, exposure profiles of sensor nodes were used by the sink node to compute the minimal exposure path. A combination of the computed minimal exposed path and the ratio of covered to uncovered grids were used as the function fitness in our particle swarm optimization algorithm. Bearing in mind the energy constraints of sensor nodes, randomly deployed nodes were only repositioned in the optimization process when their energy levels are above the predefined threshold. The accuracy and efficiency of our scheme are established via simulations. We compared the results of our scheme with a similar optimization scheme. The results showed our scheme achieved a higher coverage degree with the same number of deployed nodes over a region of interest of the same size.

  • Design and Simulation of a High Sensitive Surface Plasmon Resonance
           Biosensor for Detection of Biomolecules
    • Abstract: Abstract In this paper, a surface plasmon resonance (SPR) biosensor based on black phosphorus (BP)–WSe2 coated metal surface for the detection of biomolecules is designed and simulated. The reported sensor configuration consists of a prism (SF10 glass), ZnO (zinc oxide), gold (Au), WSe2–BP, and sensing medium. The execution parameters including sensitivity, detection accuracy, and quality factor of the proposed sensor are explored at an operating wavelength of 633 nm. The angular interrogation method is used for the reflectance spectra analysis. The overall simulation is performed by COMSOL multiphysics (5.3a). Numerical outcomes demonstrate that the base ZnO layers which have an expansive genuine value of the dielectric constant in a mix with gold, WSe2, and BP are in charge of upgrading the detecting execution of the proposed SPR based biosensor. The reported biosensor achieves maximum sensitivity of 101.5 deg/RIU, the detection accuracy of 1.57 and a quality parameter of 15.62 RIU−1 for a large dynamic range of refractive index differing from 1.33 to 1.43.

  • A Robust Pan-Sharpening Scheme for Improving Resolution of Satellite
           Images in the Domain of the Nonsubsampled Shearlet Transform
    • Abstract: Abstract Pan-sharpening is a substantial post-processing task for captured multispectral remotely sensed satellite imagery. Its main purpose is to fuse the high spectral characteristics of the multispectral (MS) images with the high spatial information of the panchromatic (Pan) image to output a sharper MS image (pan-sharpened) that encompasses higher spectral and spatial resolutions. In this paper, we investigate a conception of a new pan-sharpening scheme using the pulse coupled neural network (PCNN) in the nonsubsampled shearlet transform (NSST) domain. This can be done based on two main steps. In the first step, the input MS and Pan images are individually decomposed into multi-scaled and multi-directional coefficients by NSST. Second, the PCNN is applied to the low-frequency coefficients, which are merged by a weighted firing energy fusion rule utilizing the PCNN firing times. The detail coefficients with higher matching value are chosen to be the fused detail coefficients. Lastly, the pan-sharpened image is generated by the inverse NSST. WorldView-2, GeoEye-1, and QuickBird satellite datasets are employed in the experiments which demonstrate that the investigated scheme gained the ability in preserving both the high spatial details and high spectral characteristics simultaneously without involving abundant computation time. In addition, various image quality metrics such as CC, RMSE, RASE, ERGAS, SAM, Q4, QNR, and SCC are adopted to assess the spectral and spatial qualities of the pan-sharpened image. The experimental results and performance analysis illustrated that our scheme improved performance efficiency and achieved superiority over other conventional techniques.

  • Reversible Image Steganography Using Dual-Layer LSB Matching
    • Abstract: Abstract Recently, reversible information hiding (RIH) methods have drawn substantial attention in many privacy-sensitive real-time applications, such as the Internet of Things (IoT) enabled communications, electronic health care infrastructure, and military applications. The RIH methods are proven to be competent in such hyper-sensitive infrastructures where the loss of a single bit of information is not acceptable. In this paper, dual-layered based RIH method using modified least significant bit (LSB) matching has been proposed. The objective of the proposed work is to enhance the embedding efficiency (EE) using dual-layer based embedding strategy and to curtail the distortion caused to the stego-image to improve its quality. At the first layer of embedding, each pixel conceals two bits of information using the proposed modified LSB matching method to produce the intermediate pixel pair (IPP). Further, the IPP is utilized to conceal four bits of information during the next layer of embedding. Experimental study reveals that, the proposed method can embed 1,572,864 bits of secret data with peak signal-to-noise ratio (PSNR) of 47.86 dB, 48.05 dB, 46.51 dB and 48.14 dB, for the respective images. Further, the image quality assessment parameters like structural similarity (SSIM) index and universal image quality index (Q) are as good as the existing literature. Additionally, the proposed method shows excellent anti-steganalysis ability to regular and singular (RS) and pixel difference histogram (PDH) analysis.
