Article
Wireless capsule endoscopy (WCE) is performed with a miniature swallowable endoscope enabling the visualization of the whole gastrointestinal (GI) tract. One of the most challenging problems in WCE is the localization of the capsule endoscope (CE) within the GI lumen. Contemporary, radiation-free localization approaches are mainly based on the use...
Article
Robotic endoscopic systems offer a minimally invasive approach to the examination of internal body structures, and their application is rapidly extending to cover the increasing needs for accurate therapeutic interventions. In this context, it is essential for such systems to be able to perform measurements, such as measuring the distance travelled...
Conference Paper
The interpretation of medical images depends on physicians' experience. Over time, physicians develop their ability to examine the images, and this is usually reflected on gaze patterns they follow to observe visual cues, which lead them to diagnostic decisions. In the context of gaze prediction, graph and machine learning methods have been propose...

Every day, visually challenged people (VCP) face mobility restrictions and accessibility limitations. A short walk to a nearby destination, which for other individuals is taken for granted, becomes a challenge. To tackle this problem, we propose a novel visual perception system for outdoor navigation that can be evolved into an everyday visual aid...

Signal processing is a fundamental component of almost any sensor-enabled system, with a wide range of applications across different scientific disciplines. Time series data, images, and video sequences comprise representative forms of signals that can be enhanced and analysed for information extraction and quantification. The recent advances in ar...

The huge amount of video data produced daily by camera-based systems, such as surveilance, medical and telecommunication systems, emerges the need for effective video summarization (VS) methods. These methods should be capable of creating an overview of the video content. In this paper, we propose a novel VS method based on a Generative Adversarial...

The marginalization of people with disabilities, such as visually impaired individuals (VIIs), has driven scientists to take advantage of the fast growth of smart technologies and develop smart assistive systems (SASs) to bring VIIs back to social life, education and even to culture. Our research focuses on developing a human–computer interactive s...
Chapter
Visual impairment restricts everyday mobility and limits the accessibility of places, which for the non-visually impaired is taken for granted. A short walk to a close destination, such as a market or a school becomes an everyday challenge. In this chapter, we present a novel solution to this problem that can evolve into an everyday visual aid for...
Chapter
Obstacle detection addresses the detection of an object, of any kind, that interferes with the canonical trajectory of a subject, such as a human or an autonomous robotic agent. Prompt obstacle detection can become critical for the safety of visually impaired individuals (VII). In this context, we propose a novel methodology for obstacle detection,...

Background and study aims Capsule endoscopy (CE) is invaluable for minimally invasive endoscopy of the gastrointestinal tract; however, several technological limitations remain including lack of reliable lesion localization. We present an approach to 3D reconstruction and localization using visual information from 2D CE images. Patients and methods...
Article
Wireless capsule endoscopy is a non-invasive screening procedure of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract performed with an ingestible capsule endoscope (CE) of the size of a large vitamin pill. Such endoscopes are equipped with a usually low-frame-rate color camera which enables the visualization of the GI lumen and the detection of pathologies. The loc...
Conference Paper
Wireless capsule endoscopy (WCE) is the prime diagnostic modality for the small-bowel. It consists in a swallowable color camera that enables the visual detection and assessment of abnormalities, without patient discomfort. The localization of the capsule is currently performed in the 3D abdominal space using radiofrequency (RF) triangulation. Howe...

Project
The aim of ENORASI project is the development of a novel wearable system offering accessibility and guidance to open environments of high cultural and tourist value, while it provides a unique user experience, including users with limited sight or total blindness. The system will enable the user’s localisation in an area of interest, recognition of his/her environment, objects of cultural / tourist interest, obstacles or dangerous situations around. It provides directions not only for navigation but also for personalised guided touring. The proposed system integrates computer vision and voice-based interaction within a cloud information processing and sharing environment.
