Image Processing and Computer Vision Group
The goal of computer vision is to detect objects and interpret images, emulating the ability of our brains at these tasks. The focus of our present research includes various application fields in biometry and surveillance. Specifically: iris recognition, face detection and recognition, detection of pedestrians, human action detection and traffic detection.
Research is also being done in remote sensing image processing, mainly in Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) images.
Another active research areas are 3D real-time visualization and computer graphics, including topics related to GPU programming, augmented reality and computer human interaction.
We teach courses in image processing and image analysis and have technology transfer projects with the industry and the government.
Human resources are our most valuable assets. In this area, graduate theses and PhD theses are being developed within the group and in collaboration with other groups, both local and foreign.
