About the book

Sensors use captured images to localize the target object's presence, orientation, and accuracy to the background. When training such models, including the image, a bound-box is provided so that the senor can learn different object locations. As the objects can appear in any area, single model accuracy is minimal. To improve the localization accuracy, one could use the multiple models and their combined prediction, to improve the overall accuracy. The localization algorithms determine the accuracy by calculating the overlap of the target with its ground-truth. If the overlap is more significant than 0.7, then the presence of an object is detected. Current large scale training in object localization in this area has annotated millions of objects with their bound-boxes to create the Common Object in Context image reference datasets. So detectors can be developed, but they need to augment the data necessary to improve the accuracy since the target, as mentioned, could occur anywhere, also their orientation could be different. Vision sensor localization algorithms need to be easily trained for varying target sizes, positions, and scales.

Register for the book

Approved chapters written in full and submitted

Deadline for full chapters: February 1st 2021

Once approved by the academic editor and publishing review team, chapters are written and submitted according to pre-agreed parameters

Full chapters peer reviewed

Review results due: April 22nd 2021

Full chapter manuscripts are screened for plagiarism and undergo a Main Editor Peer Review. Results are sent to authors within 30 days of submission, with suggestions for rounds of revisions.

Book compiled, published and promoted

Expected publication date: June 21st 2021

All chapters are copy-checked and typesetted before being published. IntechOpen regularly submits its books to major databases for evaluation and coverage, including the Clarivate Analytics Book Citation Index in the Web of ScienceTM Core Collection. Other discipline-specific databases are also targeted, such as Web of Science's BIOSIS Previews.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Sandra Maljavac

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
