A K-Means Clustering Approach for Extraction of Keyframes in Fast-Moving Videos

The explosive growth of video data necessitated the need for large amount of storage devices. Nonetheless, the stored multimedia data has a lot of redundant video frames. These redundant frames make video browsing and retrieval difficult for the user as well as time consuming. Thus, negatively affecting bandwidth utilization and storage capacity. In order to improve the bandwidth utilization and storage capacity, keyframe extraction algorithms were proposed. These algorithms were implemen...

Return on Investment for Open Source Hardware Development

The availability of free and open source hardware designs that can be replicated with low-cost 3-D printers provide large values to scientists that need highly-customized low-volume production scientific equipment. Digital manufacturing technologies have only recently become widespread and the return on investment (ROI) was not clear, so funding for open hardware development was historically sparse. This paper clarifies a method for determining an ROI for FOSH scientific hardware development....
