PIR sensor array for hand motion recognition

Presentation / Conference
Wojtczuk, P., Armitage, A., Binnie, D., & Chamberlain, T. (2011, August)
PIR sensor array for hand motion recognition. Paper presented at SensorDevices 2011, Nice, France
Abstract—In this paper we present our work towards a hand gesture recognition system realised with a passive thermal infrared sensor array. In contrast with the majority of re...

Recognition of simple gestures using a PIR sensor array

Journal Article
Wojtczuk, P., Armitage, A., Binnie, D., & Chamberlain, T. (2012)
Recognition of simple gestures using a PIR sensor array. Sensors & transducers, 14, 83-94
We present an approach that is intended for simple gesture control using a relatively inexpensive pyroelectric array detector. The detector is manufactured using standard wafe...

An embedded real-time pedestrian detection system using an infrared camera.

Conference Proceeding
Walczyk, R., Armitage, A., & Binnie, D. (2010)
An embedded real-time pedestrian detection system using an infrared camera. In IET Irish Signals and Systems Conference (ISSC 2009)https://doi.org/10.1049/cp.2009.1716
An FPGA-based implementation of a pedestrian detection system using thermal infrared imaging is presented. The main feature of the processing platform is its ability to detec...

High-resolution image reconstruction from multiple low-resolution images.

Conference Proceeding
Wei, H., & Binnie, D. (1999)
High-resolution image reconstruction from multiple low-resolution images. https://doi.org/10.1049/cp%3A19990392
In this paper, we demonstrate a digital signal processing (DSP) algorithm for improving spatial resolution of images captured by CMOS cameras. The basic approach is to reconst...
