Feature extraction and classification processes while developing Optical Character Recognition (OCR) systems involve massive computations and quite expensive especially for South Indian scripts. Multiple combinations of vowels and consonants along with its modifiers led to generation of huge number of classes with respect to character recognition systems. The feature extraction and classification of characters from such huge number of classes in south Indian language OCRs remains as a non-trivial problem. This paper proposes a technique for feature extraction and classification of Telugu handwritten script based on customized template matching approach with the support of caching technique for better performance. The technique of caching is implemented using main database with a cache database maintaining the frequently used character templates for set of all character templates. The XML database is used for defining the classes for various character templates and the class representations are provided using a novel class structure designed based on XML tags. The proposed system exhibits the recognition efficiency on our own test dataset with an overall accuracy of 83.55% for handwritten characters.[...] Read more.

Motion segmentation is an important task in video surveillance and in many high-level vision applications. This paper proposes two generic methods for motion segmentation from surveillance video sequences captured from different kinds of sensors like aerial, Pan Tilt and Zoom (PTZ), thermal and night vision. Motion segmentation is achieved by employing Hotelling's T-Square test on the spatial neighborhood RGB color intensity values of each pixel in two successive temporal frames. Further, a modified version of Hotelling's T-Square test is also proposed to achieve motion segmentation. On comparison with Hotelling's T-Square test, the result obtained by the modified formula is better with respect to computational time and quality of the output. Experiments along with the qualitative and quantitative comparison with existing method have been carried out on the standard IEEE PETS (2006, 2009 and 2013) and IEEE Change Detection (2014) dataset to demonstrate the efficacy of the proposed method in the dynamic environment and the results obtained are encouraging.[...] Read more.
