Cell Histograms Versus Color Histograms for Image Representation and Retrieval
Technical report TR01-01. Color is a commonly used feature for realizing content-based image retrieval (CBIR). In this context, this paper presents a new approach for CBIR which is based on well known and widely used color histograms. Previous approaches have used a single global color...
An Adaptive and Efficient Clustering-based Approach for Content Based Image Retrieval in Image Databases
An Adaptive and Efficient Clustering-based Approach for Content Based Image Retrieval in Image DatabasesDownload
Technical report TR01-03. In this paper, we present a new Content-Based Image Retrieval (CBIR) approach which is based on cluster analysis. A distinguishing aspect of CBIR is that it relies on a visual content representation (metadata) of the images. In order to produce such metadata, we propose...
Technical report TR06-24. Wireless sensor networks have received much attention recently. Given their autonomy, flexibility and large range of functionality, they can be used as an effective and discrete means for monitoring data in many domains. Typically the network autonomy implies a limited...
Technical report TR09-14. We consider the problem of aggregation convergecast scheduling in wireless sensor networks. Aggregation convergecast differs from regular convergecast in that it accommodates transmission dependencies that allow in-network aggregation to be performed. We formulate the...
Content-Based Image Retrieval Using Binary Signatures
Technical report TR00-18. Significant research has focused on determining efficient methodologies for retrieving images in large image databases. In this paper, we propose two variations of a new image abstraction technique based on signature bit-strings and an appropriate similarity metric. The...
A Unified Framework for Searching Multiple Compressed Collections
Technical report TR01-17. In this work, we propose a new framework for searching directly through multiple compressed collections. We combine, in a single framework, four techniques for efficient, low-overhead text retrieval: inverted index compression, block addressing, sequential searching in...
Technical report TR09-05. It is a well known fact that minimizing energy consumption in Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) is crucial for its usability; and minimizing the flow of data is one way to achieve that. Most WSN models assume the existence of a base station where query results could in...
On the Trade-Off Between User-Location Privacy and Queried-Location Privacy in Wireless Sensor NetworksDownload
Technical report TR09-07. By eavesdropping on a user's query in a sensor network, an adversary can deduce both the user's location and his/her area of interest. In many domains it is desirable to guarantee privacy of both places. Relying on the principle of k-anonymity, we propose an effective...
Technical report TR08-02. We consider the problem of vehicle classification using acoustic signals captured within a sensor network. The sensors perform collaborative decision and/or data fusion in a distributed and energy efficient manner. We present a distributed cluster-based algorithm,...
Color Based Image Retrieval Using Signature Trees
Technical report TR01-02. Significant research has focused on determining efficient methodologies for effective and speedy retrieval in large image databases. Towards that goal, the first contribution of this paper is an image abstraction technique, called VBA, based on signature bit-strings and...
