Special Issue on Image Processing / Pattern Recognition TechnologiesSupporting Human Living and Society

IIEEJ Editorial Committee

Digital images have been spreading to every corner of human living and society. Together with this movement, there is great expectation for image recognition technology. Familiar examples will be face/smile detection of digital cameras. Automated medical examination has also a long history. Automatic driving of vehicles has been taken up as one of the Japanese government’s growth strategies. Level 1 that enables automatic operation of one of acceleration / deceleration / steering and level 2 (complex of level 1) are already in practical use. To achieve monitored automatic driving (level 3) and fully automatic driving (level 4), practical research is progressing by the recognition of white lines of running lanes, obstacles such as running vehicles, parking vehicles, walkers, objects such as signals, traffic signs and so on, under accurate environmental recognition performance including nighttime and rainy weather.

For various targets of image recognition, in addition to machine learning techniques, applications of conventional pattern recognition technology, and applications of the latest technology such as Deep Learning are under study. Such advanced image recognition technology spreads not only in automatic driving of vehicles but also in various fields mainly focusing on security issues such as factory line monitoring, airport baggage inspection, person identification for criminal investigation. With the help of such technologies, labor saving is highly expected by the high-performance visual substitution of human beings.

Based on this background, we look forward to receiving your papers, system development papers, and material papers in this special issue.
