KANYAKUMARI RESEARCH FOUNDATION (KRF) is a forum for research minded faculties, scientists and students to carry out their scientific research projects & proposals. One can become a KRF member by registration through the website.

3D Image Overlay

Image overlay, a visualization method, combines 3D computer generated images with the user's view of the real world. In contrast with other image overlay systems, this system provides the observer with an unimpeded view of the actual environment, enhanced with 3D stereo images. The system has the ability to track changes in the observer's view point and transform the computer images to appear in the appropriate location.

Car Tracking

We have developed an algorithm to track cars in the surrounding road scene and then generate a "bird's eye view" of the road. Our algorithm uses an efficient, robust tracking algorithm.

Face Detection

Image overlay, a visualization method, combines 3D computer generated images with the user's view of the real world. In contrast with other image overlay systems, this system provides the observer with an unimpeded view of the actual environment, enhanced with 3D stereo images. The system has the ability to track changes in the observer's view point and transform the computer images to appear in the appropriate location.

Gaze Estimation

Passive gaze estimation is usually performed by locating the pupils, and the inner and outer eye corners in the image of the driver's head. Of these feature points, the eye corners are just as important, and perhaps harder to detect, than the pupils. The eye corners are usually found using local feature detectors and trackers. On the other hand, we have built a passive gaze tracking system which uses a global head model, specifically an Active Appearance Model (AAM), to track the whole head. From the AAM, the eye corners, eye region, and head pose are robustly extracted and then used to estimate the gaze. See here for more details of our AAM tracking algorithms.

Assistive Robots for Blind Travelers

Image overlay, a visualization method, combines 3D computer generated images with the user's view of the real world. In contrast with other image overlay systems, this system provides the observer with an unimpeded view of the actual environment, enhanced with 3D stereo images.
