Covers the state of the art in the emerging area of 3D imaging for safety and security
Includes coverage of biometrics, face recognition, surveillance, safety inspection
Instructs the reader beyond the standard of image processing
The past decades have seen significant improvements in 3D imaging where the related techniques and technologies have advanced to a mature state. These exciting developments have sparked increasing interest in the challenges and opportunities afforded by 3D sensing. As a consequence, the emerging area of safety and security related imaging incorporates these important new technologies beyond the limitations of 2D image processing.
This book presents the thoroughly revised versions of lectures given by leading researchers during the Workshop on Advanced 3D Imaging for Safety and Security in conjunction with the International Conference on Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition CVPR 2005, held in San Diego, CA, USA in June 2005.
It covers the current state of the art in 3D imaging for safety and security. Coverage includes 3D imaging related to biometrics, face recognition, surveillance, safety inspection and robotic planning for physical security analysis and public safety.
