Detecting changes of the same scene taken at different time instances is crucial and demanding for medical, remote sensing, infrastructure, agriculture, and planogram compliance applications. We propose a statistical-based approach by exploiting the linear relationship. Initially, region of interest is identified using a graph-cut-based technique followed by geometrical alignment via area-based registration. To perform statistical correlation, we adopt features such as block-wise average coefficient value of the first level of the discrete wavelet transform (DWT-LL1) and the map obtained using hybrid saliency approaches. In the former approach, Pearson’s correlation measure is calculated for the DWT-LL1, and in the latter, PCC has been calculated using the saliency value. Change has been detected using optimal PCC value while minimizing the error rate. Experimental results on datasets reveal that saliency feature and DWT-LL1 perform better for normal and noise corrupted images, respectively. The efficiency of the proposed method is validated by user study with average mean opinion score of 70%. Hybrid saliency-based change detection gives 92.9% of correct classification and hence useful for the vision-based applications like damage detection in a car.

In this paper we present a securable image watermarking process for the user authentication as an android application. This system is built to protect personal and official images of a person that are captured using his/her own phone. The user can choose the types of watermark that he/she wants. The proposed system requires less battery consumption and processing time. © 2015, Research India Publications.

M. Muthugnanambika, Bagyammal T., Dr. Latha Parameswaran, and Vaiapury, K., “An automated vision based change detection method for planogram compliance in retail stores”, in Lecture Notes in Computational Vision and Biomechanics, vol. 28, Springer Netherlands, 2018, pp. 399-411.[Abstract]


Planogram are visual representations of a store’s products and services designed to help retailers ensure that the right merchandise is consistently on display, and that inventory is controlled at a level that guarantees that the right number of products are on each and every shelf. The main objective of this work is to propose an algorithm using image processing and machine learning as its base to find and detect the changes in the arrangement of objects present in the retail stores. The proposed algorithm is capable of identifying void space, count objects of similar type and thus helps in tracking the changes. Blob detection superseded by classification using a discriminative machine learning approach with the extracted statistical features of the objects has been used in this proposed algorithm. Experimental results are quite promising and hence this algorithm can be used to detect any changes occurring in a scene. © 2018, Springer International Publishing AG.
