Title: IMAGE PROCESSING DEVICE, IMAGE PROCESSING METHOD, AND IMAGE PROCESSING SYSTEM
Abstract:
Methods and apparatus for image processing. The method comprises generating a first image having a first resolution, searching, by processing circuitry, the first image to determine whether a target object can be identified in the first image, specifying, when it is determined that the target object can be identified in the first image, a region-of-interest in the first image, generating, when it is determined that the target object cannot be identified in the first image, a second image having a second resolution higher than the first resolution, searching, by the processing circuitry, the second image to determine whether the target object can be identified in the second image, and specifying, when it is determined that the target object can be identified in the second image, a region-of-interest in the second image.
