Title: Health Monitoring by an automated System for Biological Hazardous Material in the Air
Abstract: Human beings are exposed every day to bioaerosols in the various fields of their personal and/or professional daily life. The European Commission has rules protecting employees in the workplace from biological hazards. Airborne fungi, yeast, bacteria, and viruses can be detected and identified by an image acquisition and interpretation system. In this talk we present results on the development of an image interpretation system fordetecting biological hazardous material in the air. We explain the application domain and describe the development issues. The development strategy and the architecture of the system are described. Finally we give recent results.
