  • Patent number: 11398053
    Abstract: The present invention discloses a multispectral camera external parameter self-calibration algorithm based on edge features, and belongs to the field of image processing and computer vision. Because a visible light camera and an infrared camera belong to different modes, fewer satisfactory point pairs are obtained by directly extracting and matching feature points. In order to solve the problem, the method starts from the edge features, and finds an optimal corresponding position of an infrared image on a visible light image through edge extraction and matching. In this way, a search range is reduced and the number of the satisfactory matched point pairs is increased, thereby more effectively conducting joint self-calibration on the infrared camera and the visible light camera. The operation is simple and results are accurate.

  • Publication number: 20220230324
    Abstract: A method for segmenting a camouflaged object image based on distraction mining is disclosed. PFNet successively includes a multi-layer feature extractor, a positioning module, and a focusing module. The multi-layer feature extractor uses a traditional feature extraction network to obtain different levels of contextual features; the positioning module first uses RGB feature information to initially determine the position of the camouflaged object in the image; the focusing module mines the information and removes the distraction information based on the image RGB feature information and preliminary position information, and finally determines the boundary of the camouflaged object step by step. The method of the present invention introduces the concept of distraction information into the problem of segmentation of the camouflaged object and develops a new information exploration and distraction information removal strategy to help the segmentation of the camouflaged object image.

  • Publication number: 20220215569
    Abstract: The present invention belongs to the field of image processing and computer vision, and discloses an acceleration method of depth estimation for multiband stereo cameras. In the process of depth estimation, during binocular stereo matching in each band, through compression of matched images, on one hand, disparity equipotential errors caused by binocular image correction can be offset to make the matching more accurate, and on the other hand, calculation overhead is reduced. In addition, before cost aggregation, cost diagrams are transversely compressed and sparsely matched, thereby reducing the calculation overhead again. Disparity diagrams obtained under different modes are fused to obtain all-weather, more complete and more accurate depth information.
