The article introduces the new technology to prevent the losses in the retail industry in the U.S. through the intelligent video analysis. According to the National Retail Federation, there is an increase in organized retail crime. In order to better prevent the loss, such technology based on computer vision research transforming video data into actionable information can be useful. Suspects can be identified by loss prevention and tracked by the system across multiple cameras in real-time. INSET: SHOPPERS: Biometrics Thumbs Up..

    Shape recognition is the field of computer vision which addresses the problem of finding out whether a query shape lies or not in a shape database, up to a certain invariance. Most shape recognition methods simply sort shapes from the database along some (dis-)similarity measure to the query...

    It is well known that one can collect the coefficients of five (or more) homographies between two views into a large, rank deficient matrix. In principle, this implies that one can refine the accuracy of the estimates of the homography coefficients by exploiting the rank constraint. However, the...
