# 0.3 Methodology for extracting information from "random" measurements

 Page 1 / 1
Our approach for detecting the speed of a known object.

## Simulating compressed sensing

Because compressed sensing cameras are not yet availiable, we used a Matlab routine written by Ilan Goodman to simulate CS measurements from a standard pixel image file [1]. Only the compressed sensing measurements are passed into our suite of calculation programs which run exactly as if the CS measurements came from a hardware-implemented CS camera.

To implement compressed sensing on an image (matrix) according to the definition, a random matrix the same size of the image is generated. The projection (inner product) of the image onto the random basis matrix gives a single compressed sensing measurement. This is repeated with different (fixed) random matricies until the desired compressed sensing resolution is achieved. This is computationally intensive and so a different approach is used in practice to simulate our data: first, every pixel of the image is randomly mapped to a different location to randomize the image. Next, the DCT (discrete cosine transform) is taken on the randomized image. This process of randomization and projection is equivalent to projection onto a random basis [1].

## Random, on average

We exploited two key facts about compressed sensing on a random basis to calculate speed:

1) The average value of the elements of the random basis used is 1.

2) On a given image, a fixed random basis yields the same projections every time it is used.

While seemingly trivial, this basic data allows us to determine velocity quite accurately based on a fewobservations in the pixel domain.

Consider the following moving rectangles:

Now consider the difference between subsequent frames showing the motion of the rectangles:

Since the red rectangle is moving faster, there is less overlap between subsequent frames and more area is both added to and subtracted from the image area. Therefore, we would expect that since the difference between subsequent images is greater for the red rectangle that the difference between consecutive compressed sensing projections along the same basis element is also greater. Taking a simple difference between consecutive CS measurements should yield a measure of the change between frames.

This basic intuition can also be supported rigorously. The difference between frames can be thought of as an image itself with a positive region on the leading edge of motion and a negative region at the trailing edge. Since the CS measurement process is linear time invariant assuming a fixed basis, the difference between projections in subsequent frames is the same as the projection of the difference image [2]. If the background behind the moving objects has zero value, then the CS projection values of the difference image is based solely on the difference between frames of the original images. The larger the non-zero area of the difference image, the larger the inner product with the CS basis elements are expected to be and a positive relationship exists between speed and frame difference measured from the compressed sensing data.

These calculations yeild a ratio between the change between subsequent frames along the direction of motion with respect to the total intensity in the frame. The same shape either moving in a different direction or with different orientation will produce different results. For more complicated shapes, the amount of change is not linear with speed and we expect the measurement of change will be more complicated, but still deterministic.

## Resolution limit

Calculating velocity in this way is limited to sampling rates that show overlap between consecutive frames. If the object is moving so quickly that there is no overlap, it is unclear how far it has moved: a speed where the frames are just slightly discontinuous will give similar results to a much faster speed.

Is there any normative that regulates the use of silver nanoparticles?
what king of growth are you checking .?
Renato
What fields keep nano created devices from performing or assimulating ? Magnetic fields ? Are do they assimilate ?
why we need to study biomolecules, molecular biology in nanotechnology?
?
Kyle
yes I'm doing my masters in nanotechnology, we are being studying all these domains as well..
why?
what school?
Kyle
biomolecules are e building blocks of every organics and inorganic materials.
Joe
anyone know any internet site where one can find nanotechnology papers?
research.net
kanaga
sciencedirect big data base

Introduction about quantum dots in nanotechnology
what does nano mean?
nano basically means 10^(-9). nanometer is a unit to measure length.
Bharti
do you think it's worthwhile in the long term to study the effects and possibilities of nanotechnology on viral treatment?
absolutely yes

Do somebody tell me a best nano engineering book for beginners?
there is no specific books for beginners but there is book called principle of nanotechnology
NANO
what is fullerene does it is used to make bukky balls
are you nano engineer ?
s.
fullerene is a bucky ball aka Carbon 60 molecule. It was name by the architect Fuller. He design the geodesic dome. it resembles a soccer ball.
Tarell
what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
Damian
That is a great question Damian. best way to answer that question is to Google it. there are hundreds of applications for buck minister fullerenes, from medical to aerospace. you can also find plenty of research papers that will give you great detail on the potential applications of fullerenes.
Tarell
what is the Synthesis, properties,and applications of carbon nano chemistry
Mostly, they use nano carbon for electronics and for materials to be strengthened.
Virgil
is Bucky paper clear?
CYNTHIA
carbon nanotubes has various application in fuel cells membrane, current research on cancer drug,and in electronics MEMS and NEMS etc
NANO
so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.
Harper
Do you know which machine is used to that process?
s.
how to fabricate graphene ink ?
for screen printed electrodes ?
