  5. In Home Reading Eye Movement Training System

    SBC: Kilbride, Paul            Topic: N

    Given the rapidly aging population and the incidence of age related eye diseases the number of individuals with low vision is expected to increase dramatically in the next decades Patients with central vision loss can no longer use their foveas and eccentric retina must be used to perform visual tasks Since the peripheral retina has reduced sensory capabilities and altered oculomotor behavior ...

  7. Bayesian Inference of Spacecraft Geometry and Pose

    SBC: VISION SYSTEMS INC.            Topic: AF17AT007

    Space platforms are complex dynamical systems and there are many reasons to model them from ground telescope imagery as well as from space-based sensor platforms. One key motivation is to determine the operational state and configuration of the vehicle. Key questions such as did the solar panels fail to deploy, did the object begin to tumble unexpectedly may be addressed by a sufficiently detaile ...
