Visual tracking and measurement is one of the most important tasks in computer vision and finds applications in traffic surveillance, vision-guided mobile robots, etc. In this paper, a binocular vision system is used to achieve the visual servoing, mimicking the movements of human eyes. First, a robust scheme, which combines adaptive Background Subtraction (BS) and Camshift algorithms, is proposed to detect and track a moving object. Then, we discuss the problems of camera parameter calibration and position measurement of moving objects. A new approach is introduced to realise the extrinsic parameter calibration of a pan-tilt camera, providing successful tracking and accurate measurement of a moving target, even as it is outside the view of the camera. Numerous experiments have been done on the binocular vision system of a humanoid mobile platform, and the results show that the proposed approaches work very well.

In-Situ Treatment - Funnel & Gate System - Case Study
ProblemAn asphalt testing facility, in operation for many years, closed in the early 1990s. A subsequent environmental assessment revealed that an underground storage tank, used to hold common cleaning/degreasing solvent for use during testing, had developed a leak and had to be abandoned. The storage tank and soil in the immediate vicinity was removed as the first step to remediate the site. However, the tank had been leaking for approximately 40 years and there was a significant residual plume of groundwater...
Water Treatment System Types and Their Benefits
Water is one of the most important utilities in the world. It’s used for bathing, cooking, washing clothes, cleaning dishes, and drinking. If you get your water from the city, you trust your tap water to be clean and healthy. It goes through a treatment plant before it reaches you, so it’s perfectly purified when it reaches you—right? Unfortunately, this isn’t always the case. Thankfully, you have the option to install a water treatment system in your home or business. Why Bother Purifying?...

LED Lighting and Compatibility Issues with Legacy Dimming Systems
LED Lighting and Compatibility Issues with Legacy Dimming Systems LED technology is being adopted by numerous businesses around the world. Its energy saving benefits, long lifespan and modern features have won over individuals who are looking for reliable lighting solutions. But in order for the transition to gain full acceptance by consumers and commercial sectors, LEDs have to be able to support legacy dimming systems and controls. LED Dimming Definition and Standards Dimming is a crucial aspect of...
Geoweb System protects utilities & eliminates need for undercut in Bucyrus, Ohio - Case Study
Project BackgroundOhio DOT (ODOT) needed to establish a road base in an area that had poorly marked and shallow utilities to eliminate the need for undercuts. ODOT and Presto’s engineers developed a design that eliminated the need for a 12 inch undercut and delays that would occur due to utility relocation. Aggregate ready to be spread in the GEOWEB cellular confinement system. Project Material148,500 sq. ft. of 6 inch Presto GEOWEB sq. ft. of 6” Geoweb GEOWEB system nearly filled with aggregate....
