Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Hyperspectral imaging (HSI) devices produce 3-D hyper-cubes of a spatial scene in hundreds of different spectral bands, generating large data sets which allow accurate data processing to be implemented. However, the large dimen-sionality of hypercubes leads to subsequent implementation of dimensionality reduction techniques such as principal component analysis (PCA), where the covariance matrix is constructed in order to perform such analysis. In this paper, we describe how the covariance matrix of an HSI hyper-cube can be computed in real time ‘on the fly’ during the data acquisition process. This offers great potential for HSI embedded devices to provide not only conventional HSI data but also preprocessed information.
