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.

Golf Course Solutions - Case Study
Problem. It’s a long way from the clubhouse’s coffee shop to the 18th hole. Furtively ducking into the nearby woods is an unsatisfactory answer to nature’s call, so mid-course comfort stations are necessities. But perc challenged soils and environmental considerations can preclude septic systems. Sewer connections, utility electricity, and running potable water can be prohibitively expensive. Vault and portable chemical toilets offend the nose as well as the eye.Solution. An odorless Phoenix...

Purolite A120S is Integral to Zero Liquid Discharge Systems in the Textile Dyeing Industry
Purolite A120S is integral to zero liquid discharge systems in the textile dyeing industry. Used for reduction of color, Biological Oxygen Demand (BOD) and Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD) from textile dye waste water, the resin removes color through the mechanisms of ion exchange, adsorption and filtration. Subsequent regeneration of the product easily removes the adsorbed color, enabling repeated use of the product and so reducing waste. When Purolite A120S is used in combination with Purolite C104Plus to...
CASE STUDY - Ivey-Sol® 103 Successfully Treats Free-Phase Impacted Shale Via On-Site Washing
CASE SUMMARY Undisclosed Site, Ontario, 2008 Environmental investigation of a grass-covered area uncovered free phase petroleum (F3-F4 fraction heavy oils) in fractured, weathered shale. A pilot project was undertaken by Terratechnik Ltd. to excavate the shale and treat it by washing with a non-ionic surfactant, Ivey-Sol® 103. Ivey-Sol® Benefits • Operates below the critical micelle concentration facilitating low application rates • Strongly enhances the solubility of hydrophobic compounds &...
Sanitation and water supply in schools and girls' educational progression in Zambia
There is much anecdotal evidence related to the importance of Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) in schools for girls' educational progression, yet a lack of comprehensive quantitative studies on linkages between WASH and educational indicators disaggregated by gender and grade. This paper aims to fill that gap by testing the hypothesis that the presence of water and sanitation facilities in schools can increase female-to-male enrolment ratios and reduce repetition and drop-out-ratios for girls, especially at...
