Rudolf Kingslake Medal Awarded by SPIE for TNO Paper on Color Image Fusion for Night-Vision Applications
Date:9/20/2013

BELLINGHAM, WA (PRWEB) September 20, 2013

Alexander Toet and Maarten Hogervorst of TNO Defence, Security, and Safety have been selected as the 2012 winners of the Rudolf Kingslake Medal and Prize for their paper titled “Progress in color nightvision.” The Kingslake Medal is awarded annually to the most noteworthy original paper in Optical Engineering, published by SPIE, the international society for optics and photonics, and includes a $2,000 honorarium.

The winning paper, published in the January 2012 issue of Optical Engineering, presents an overview of Toet and Hogervorst’s progress in achieving both color constancy and computational simplicity by applying a statistical mapping approach in a color look-up-table framework.

“The sample-based color transfer method is specific for different types of materials in a scene and can be easily adapted for the intended operating theatre and the task at hand,” Toet and Hogervorst write in the article. The method is highly suitable for real-time implementations, the researchers say.

Tomasz Tkaczyk, chair of the Kingslake Award committee, said committee members were impressed with the rigorous analysis of algorithms and imaging results and the comparison of techniques. “It provides a comprehensive guide of color night vision methods to the optical community,” Tkaczyk said.

Toet, a senior researcher at TNO, received his PhD in physics from University of Utrecht in 1987, where he worked on visual spatial localization (hyperacuity) and image processing. At TNO, he investigates multimodal image fusion, image quality, computational models of human visual search and detection, and the quantification of visual target distinctness.

Hogervorst is a research scientist at TNO. His current projects include visual information processing, electro-optical system performance, search and target acquisition modeling, image quality assessment, image enhancement, informa
