Automated Comparison of X-ray Images for cargo Scanning

Objective

The main objectives of the project ACXIS are to develop a manufacturer independent reference data base for X-ray images of illegal and legitimate cargo, procedures and algorithms to uniform X-ray images of different cargo scanners and measurement parameters, and an automated identification of potentially illegal cargo. Historic images of real detections and images of illegal cargo mock-ups as well as images of legitimate cargo will be integrated into the reference data base.
