Face detection is often a first step in quantitative analysis of face images. It is an important research area for visible images and recently also for thermography. Due to technological developments thermal cameras may be embedded into wearable devices to provide remote healthcare. In this paper, we compared three algorithms for face detection in thermal images by testing execution time, accuracy, symmetry ratio and false-positives....
In this paper, the optical linear sensor, a representative of low-resolution sensors, was investigated in the multiclass recognition of near-field hand gestures. The recurrent neural network (RNN) with a gated recurrent unit (GRU) memory cell was utilized as a gestures classifier. A set of 27 gestures was collected from a group of volunteers. The 27 000 sequences obtained were divided into training, validation, and test subsets....
Respiratory rate is very important vital sign that should be measured and documented in many medical situations. The remote measurement of respiration rate can be especially valuable for medical screening purposes (e.g. severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS), pandemic influenza, etc.). In this chapter we present a review of many different studies focused on the measurements and estimation of respiration rate using thermal imaging...
