    Abstract: In this paper an optimized method for unsupervised image clustering is proposed. Generally a Novel Fuzzy C Means (FCM) or FCM based clustering algorithm are used for clustering based image segmentation but these algorithms have a disadvantage of depending upon supervised user inputs such as number of clusters. Our proposed algorithm enhances an uns... Show More

    Abstract: Traffic in urban areas is mainly regularized by traffic lights, which may lead to the unnecessary long waiting times for vehicles if not efficiently configured. This inefficient configuration is unfortunately still the case in a lot of urban areas where most of the traffic lights are based on a ‘fixed cycle’ protocol. This paper aims to design an i...

    Abstract: Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO) is global optimization technique based on swarm intelligence. It simulates the behavior of bird flocking. It is widely accepted and focused by researchers due to its profound intelligence and simple algorithm structure. Currently PSO has been implemented in a wide range of research areas such as functional optimiza... Show More

    Abstract: Super-resolution is recently one of the most attractive research themes. An image interpolation method using co-variance between neighboring pixels, so called New Edge-Directed Interpolation (NEDI), was proposed. It enables to interpolate pixels quantitatively regardless of edge features. However, in estimation of predictive coefficients and determ... Show More

    Abstract: A new non-photorealistic rendering algorithm is proposed for creating artistic painting with soft stream flow from natural color images. The algorithm consists mainly of two stages, that is, a revised bilateral filter called trilateral filter is firstly applied to original color image for creating drawings using gradient information and then a DoG-...
