      By its definition, the word currency refers to an agreed medium for exchange, a nation’s currency is the formal medium enforced by the elected governing entity. Throughout history, issuers have faced one common threat: ...
    • CVSS: A Cloud Based Visual Surveillance System

      Yan, W-Q; Yu, J; Shu, Y; Zhou, L (IGI Global, 2018)
      A large amount of surveillance videos and images need sufficient storage. In this article, an architecture of cloud-based surveillance systems and its modules will be designed, the Cloud-based Visual Surveillance System ...
    • Detection of Adulteration in Red Meat Species Using Hyperspectral Imaging

      Al-Sarayreh, M; Reis, M; Yan, W-Q; Klette, R (Springer, 2017)
      This paper reports the performance of hyperspectral imaging for detecting the adulteration in red-meat species. Line-scanning images are acquired from muscles of lamb, beef, or pork. We consider the states of fresh, frozen, ...
    • An Empirical Study for Human Behavior Analysis

      Lu, J; Shen, J; Yan, W-Q; Bacic, B (IGI Global, 2017)
      This paper presents an empirical study for human behavior analysis based on three distinct feature extraction techniques: Histograms of Oriented Gradients (HOG), Local Binary Pattern (LBP) and Scale Invariant Local Ternary ...
    • ESSVCS: an enriched secret sharing visual cryptography

      Liu, F; Yan, W-Q; Li, P; Wu, C (Springer, 2013)
      Visual Cryptography (VC) is a powerful technique that combines the notions of perfect ciphers and secret sharing in cryptography with that of raster graphics. A binary image can be divided into shares that are able to be ...
    • Event analogy for privacy preservation in visual surveillance

      Yan, W-Q; Liu, F (Springer, 2015)
      Privacy preservation as a thorny problem in surveillance has been arisen because of its relevance to human right, however it has not been completely solved yet today. In this paper, we investigate this existing problem ...
