Robert Yang (AUT, EEE): The Use of Video to Detect and Measure Pollen on Bees Entering a Beehive

Bee populations have been observed for a long time. The health of bees affects the population. There are many factors that affect bees’ health. One factor is nutrition. Bees need an adequate quantity and different varieties of pollen. This research will measure the pollen being brought into the beehive in the bees' pollen sacs. It will process 2-D video which is obtained from in front of the entrance to the beehive and count the number of full pollen sacs which bees bring back.

Dr. Boris Bacic (AUT, Computer Science): Development of Augmented Coaching Systems (ACS): Combining Matlab and Delphi for implementation of Personal Tennis Coaching System

 The application "Personal Tennis Coaching System" utilises captured 3D motion data of tennis activity, without information about the ball impact. The purpose of the ACS - Personal Tennis Coaching System is to help end-users with motor learning and stylistic execution of tennis swings. Utilised AI approaches were implemented in Matlab. Interactive animated 3D player and the user interface were implemented in Delphi/Object Pascal codebase including presentation logic and session control with Matlab server. Future work is aimed at development of ACS for sport, human performance, injury prevention and rehabilitation. Future ACS should be able to process multi-modal motion data such as video, image, sound and other signals in stand-alone mode or distributed scenario.

Dr. John Robertson (AUT, Applied Sciences): Cheap Autonomous Vehicles Using Off-the-shelf Hobby Components

Dr. Minh Nguyen (School of Computer and Mathematical Sciences, AUT): A Guided Dynamic Programming Stereo Algorithm

We investigate whether it is possible to combine several stereo matching algorithms in order to create a hybrid algorithm that is superior to its components. We introduce a novel variant of a dynamic programming stereo algorithm that allows for guidance by other algorithms. We make use of our desirability measure to experimentally demonstrate that a combination of stereo matching algorithms is able to produce new powerful hybrids.

Junli Tao (Computer Science, UoA):  Multi-target Tracking

This presentation reports about proposed tracking algorithms for various targets, such as Drosophila Melanogaster, vehicles, or pedestrians. The talk highlights specific and general technologies to be applied for multi-target tracking. This talk summarises work done in my PhD project.

Haokun Geng  (Computer Science, UoA): Visual odometry and scene reconstruction with Kalman filters and multi-sensor integration

Visual odometry is the process of estimating the actual vehicle's (or cameras') motion over stereo images. For our dynamic and complex environment on the road, only use the image data from optical cameras may not be sufficient in some extreme cases (i.e. closely following a big truck). So we use the multi-sensor integration to improve the reliability of our egomotion estimation methods. This talk introduces an approach for egomotion estimation over stereo images combined with extra GPS data. The cameras' trajectory and 3D roadside reconstruction is used here as an evaluation method for the egomotion estimation.

Dongwei Liu (Computer Science, UoA): Stereo refinement for photo editing

The talk introduces into the applied joint bilateral filter and two methods for refining depth maps obtained by stereo matching. Based on experimental results there will be comparisons and a discussion. The illustrated applications are about the generation of fog in stereo images, and also of depth-accurate bokeh.
