Thermal imaging with drone

Most methods use 2D thermal images because they are easily obtainable. However, the proposed procedure for 3D model reconstruction in this paper can provide helpful support in making interpretation and evaluation of thermal data more automatic, faster and objective. Contrary to other methods, thermal imaging can work in environments without ambient light. It can penetrate obscurants like smoke, haze, and fog. The paper will address the challenge of 3D reconstruction from images of thermal infrared (TIR). It seeks to demonstrate that commercial computer vision software may be used to orient the sequence of TIR images from a drone and produce 3D point cloud without having to acquire any GNSS/IN...

Ethnic Minority Group’s Cultural Participation in Rotterdam Weiyan Tang

Ethnic Minority Group’s Participation in Rotterdam 1. Introduction1.1 BackgroundSimilar to other forms of active participation, recreation participation engrosses the engagement and exchange between and among individuals, groups, and families. Cultural participation usually involves the encounter with arts and heritage that culminate in healthy demeanor towards other people through increased individual confidence and capacity to work together. The main reason for cultural participation is socialization, which according to Jeannote (cited in Stanley, 2006) is highly linked to engagement in cultural activities. This participation can help to reduce the ethnic gap that often prevails among...

Highway Decision Making Re

Highway Overtaking Decision-Making by (name) Course Tutor University City, State where it is located The Date Abstract The highway decision-making process requires someone who is calculative and creative in various circumstances. The logic of the model works on the principles of neural networks and the artificial intelligence. The neural network uses complicated electronic networks to monitor and control the steps of the game. The neural network works to resemble the actual process of overtaking needs fast decision maker to over speed and overtake the vehicle ahead. The decision relies on several factors such as the condition of the highway, the speed of the vehicle being overtaken, and...

Structure and Properties Of Fullerenes

STRUCTURE AND PROPERTIES OF FULLERENES Abstract The fullerenes are allotropes of carbon. The structural formulae for the fullerenes differ from the other allotropes due to the unusual arrangement of the carbon atoms. The layers and the arrangement of the fullerene allotrope can be represented in the algebraic expressions. The algebra involved in the fullerene definitions gives the mathematical representation of the atom arrangement and the dimension of different molecular layers. The graph theory gives some theorems of the fullerene regarding the established hypothesis and facts. The fullerene graphs use algebraic concepts to support the expressions. The structural configurations of the fullerenes...
