Broad-leaf weed detection in pasture (2018)
Conference Proceeding
Zhang, W., Hansen, M. F., Volonakis, T. N., Smith, M., Smith, L., Wilson, J., …Wright, G. (2018). Broad-leaf weed detection in pasture

Weed control in pasture is a challenging problem that can be expensive and environmentally unfriendly. This paper proposes a novel method for recognition of broad-leaf weeds in pasture such that precision weed control can be achieved with reduced her...

Camouflage assessment: Machine and human (2018)
Journal Article
Volonakis, T. N., Matthews, O. E., Liggins, E., Baddeley, R. J., Scott-Samuel, N. E., & Cuthill, I. C. (2018). Camouflage assessment: Machine and human. Computers in Industry, 99, 173-182. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.compind.2018.03.013

© 2018 Elsevier B.V. A vision model is designed using low-level vision principles so that it can perform as a human observer model for camouflage assessment. In a camouflaged-object assessment task, using military patterns in an outdoor environment,... Read More about Camouflage assessment: Machine and human.

3D convolutional neural network for home monitoring using low resolution thermal-sensor array
Presentation / Conference
Tao, L., Volonakis, T., Tan, B., Zhang, Z., Jing, Y., & Smith, M. 3D convolutional neural network for home monitoring using low resolution thermal-sensor array

The recognition of daily actions, such as walking, sitting or standing, in the home is informative for assisted living, smart homes and general health care. A variety of actions in complex scenes can be recognised using visual information. However ca...
