OpenInterface Demonstration of a Vision-Based Interactions Prototype for iTunes

OpenInterface is a component-based platform dedicated to high-fidelity prototyping of advanced interactions (post-WIMP, Reality-Based Interactions, multimodal). This video demonstrates the result of a high-fidelity prototyping activity using the OpenInterface Platform tools: SKEMMI+OIKernel+OIForge. The video illustrates several vision-based interactions techniques prototyped in order to control an existing music player application (iTunes). Many other modalities and techniques can be explored by reusing existing OpenInterface components or integrating new ones.

NDT LASER: Setting-up a micro-welding plateform in Walloonia

Concerning assembly using welding process, some methods, like LASER technology, are more adapted to micro-welding. In order to integrate these modern processes into the industry, they need the creation of non-destructive quality control on assembly chains. Currently, there is no such quality control system on the market. This research project, called NDTLaser, aims at studying and developing a non-destructive quality control system, integrable inline inside the micro-welding process. The quality control system will be based on the acquisition of signals from different sensors, like microphones and cameras. The analysis of these signals, compared to reference signals, will influence the welding process.

CARETAKER: Content Analysis and Retrieval Technologies to Apply Knowledge Extraction to massive Recording

The CARETAKER project aims at studying, developing and assessing multimedia knowledge-based content analysis and knowledge extraction components and sub-systems in the context of automated situation awareness, diagnosis and decision support. More precisely, CARETAKER will focus on the extraction of a structured knowledge from multimedia collections recorded over a network of camera and microphones deployed in real site. The produced audiovisual streams, in addition to surveillance and safety issues, could represent a useful source of information if stored and automatically analysed, in urban planning and resource optimisation for instance.

MORYNE: Transforming buses into mobile sensing platforms

Modern buses could be used as mobile sensing platforms, sending out live information that can be used to control traffic and detect road hazards, according to European researchers. The research could help improve road safety, allowing traffic controllers, police and other services to access up-to-date information from any number of public buses already on the streets. In the MORYNE project, the researchers equipped city buses with environmental sensors and cameras, allowing the vehicles to become transmitters of measurements, warnings and live or recorded videos to anyone allowed to access the data.

IRMA: Multimodal research interface in audiovisual content

Aim of IRMA is to design and develop an innovative modular interface for the multimodal customized, efficient, secure and economically feasible research and navigation in indexed audiovisual database. It will allow a contextual, intuitive and natural research, completed by a fluent navigation. In this way, IRMA will provide an environment able to exploit at best the intelligence of the search engine user.

CLOVIS: Development of high-level software tools for intelligent video surveillance

The CLOVIS project team is comprised of prestigious laboratories and technology companies from Belgium and France. This team's goal was to construct a software development environment that is able to facilitate creation of today's high demand security applications. The CLOVIS software provides high-level, generic tools that can be reused in any application requiring advanced video surveillance functions. Three of the tools provided deal with counting people in a scene, tracking specific individuals as they move through a scene monitored by multiple cameras, and detecting the presence or absence of targeted events in a controlled area.

WCAM: Wireless Cameras and Audio-Visual Seamless Networking

WCAM (wireless cameras and audio-visual seamless networking) is a research and development project which is part funded under the Information Society of the European Commission's Sixth Framework Program. The WCAM project will study, develop and validate a wireless, seamless and secured end-to-end networked audio-visual system. WCAM will also focus on the technology convergence between video surveillance and multimedia distribution over the Internet. WCAM will take into account real time aspects as well as security and scalability. The project will improve state of the art technologies in each of the technological components involved in the system and combine them. The WCAM system will be installed and tested with users of both multimedia distribution and videosurveillance communities.

TIFANIS: Tele-immersion for applications supporting new interactive services

Tele-Immersion applications request a high performance from the network platform concerning QoS requirements that must be guaranteed such as low round trip delay and high bandwidth, otherwise the application rendering performance will be degraded up to unacceptable levels. The TIFANIS Project aims at providing a Tele-Immersion application prototype oriented to support two different services. One will encompass a collaborative tool, as well, oriented to the bio-engineering field where two researchers can interact with complex 3D models (protein 3D models, for instance), even following complex virtually animated process (like the unfolding of a protein molecule). The second one will provide the capability of remote handling of instruments and tools in a typical R&D environment.

Demonstration of Level crossing monitoring by video analysis

The approach we are developing is based on intelligent video monitoring. In fact, as accidents are mainly due to human's behaviour, the idea is to detect dangerous situations caused by road users. Our solution automatically detects obstacles such as stopped vehicles on the level crossing when the train is approaching. According to a given configuration, the application indicates all or some degrees of movement in the defined area (in blue), the level crossing. These new technologies give the railway staff earlier warnings to decrease the response time (e.g. stop the train).

SEcuRisation KEeps Threats

SERKET tackles the issue of security of public places and events by developing an innovative software approach where dispersed data coming from discrete devices are automatically correlated and analysed so as to provide security personnel with the right information at the right time. The SERKET project will design and develop a software approach to security by providing an open platform deployable at low cost. SERKET intends to go beyond the state-of-the-art by addressing issues related to the evolution from security seen as a collection of isolated equipments monitored through a supervisor to an integrated system by promoting Complex Event Processing (CEP) technology that enables the homogeneous processing of data and information considered as events. It is therefore a comprehensive and universal data fusion solution. .
