Computer vision is about interpreting camera data. The aim is to infer properties of the observed world from camera images or videos. The breadth of machine vision challenges is endless and the impact on society is rapidly increasing. Among the most publicly visible applications are driver assistance and autonomous mobility, biomedical image analysis and personalized medicine, earth observation from aerial, radar and satellite images, detection of anomalies in manufacturing and industrial processes, virtual and augmented reality and robotics.

Research topics

3D reconstruction with cameras (including RGB-D cameras) and Visual SLAM (simultaneous localization and mapping)

Biomedical image and video analysis

Dynamic scene interpretation, shape analysis
