  • Publication number: 20030016287
    Abstract: An image input unit inputs a plurality of images in a time series. Each input image includes a boundary line extending toward a vanishing point on a plane. A reverse projection image generation unit generates a reverse projection image of each input image by projecting information related to each input image onto the plane. A boundary line detection unit detects the boundary line from the reverse projection image by identifying a boundary line candidate on each reverse projection image.

  • Patent number: 5991849
    Abstract: A program for rewriting data in an address region B is written in an address region A which can be rewritten by an external PROM writer. After resetting the microcomputer and rewriting the program in address region A, the reset state is cancelled and the last address in address region A of the EEPROM (1) is then stored in a register (17). An address detector (18) prohibits rewriting in address region A based on an address value stored in the register (17).

  • Patent number: 5930378
    Abstract: In a dynamic image processing apparatus of the present invention, the focus of contraction of the optical flow of the background in the dynamic image is extracted. When a series of dynamic images are inputted, an optical flow extraction section extracts an optical flow representing motion vector of each block between two neighboring dynamic images. A Hough transform section votes each optical flow of the dynamic image to vote space by unit of block. The vote space comprises two planes and one circle positioned in parallel to each other. The dynamic image is included in one plane. The other plane is positioned symmetrically to the one plane with respect to a center position of the circle. The Hough transform section selects a block whose voted value is maximum in all blocks of the vote space. The selected block corresponds to the focus of contraction of the optical flow of background in the dynamic image.
