Video 57: Rice Grain Quality Assessment using Morphological Image Processing (Offline and Realtime mode)


Hello viewers, in this video, an implementation of rice quality assessment algorithm is shown. The proposed algorithm is based on morphological image processing. The quality of rice is estimated only on the basis of the length of rice grains. This implementation is done for both offline and online (Realtime) mode. In offline mode, images of rice grains are given to the algorithm and in real time mode, a camera is attached which takes images of rice grains and tells the outcome in real time.
This video includes following contents, 
  • Need of automated rice grain quality assessment. 
  • Steps of proposed scheme based on morphological image processing.
  • Solving touching grains problem.
  • MATLAB Code for proposed scheme.
  • Testing in offline and online mode.

Video 54: Face Recognition using Wavelet Features and PCA (With MATLAB Code)

Hello viewers, In this video, a face recognition scheme is implemented using Wavelet Features and Principal Component Analysis (PCA). Here wavelets are used to extract facial features and PCA is used to reduce the size of wavelet feature vectors. The proposed scheme is very robust and capable to recognize the faces even some changes occur in faces such growing beard and mustache or putting goggles etc.
This video covers followings contents,
  • Face image database (Faces94).
  • Face image database preparation for training and testing.
  • Finding wavelet features.
  • PCA for dimension reduction.
  • Training and testing procedures.
  • MATLAB Code for Training.
  • MATLAB Code for Testing (Discrete and Bulk).
