Former Visiting Students

Robotics

I was Project Leader of IRIS project Robot Partners: Collaborative Perceptual Robotic Systems.

Our weekly reading group on vision and robotics is: Robuddies

Our weekly reading group on computer vision: CVRG


Tracking and Understanding Human Motion

I was a member of IRIS project Tools for Visual Information Management in Geographical and Biomedical Applications. Its continuation, starting in April, 2002, is Acquisition, Querying and Prediction of Motion Trajectories. We have lately been specializing in extracting motion trajectories from sports videos (hockey) and building database systems that permit detection of outlier, i.e., unusual spatiotemporal patterns.
A description of the Hockey Tracking system..

Geoinformatics

I was a member of GEOIDE since 1999. The first project I was in was Extraction of Features from Remote-Sensed Imagery for a Search and Rescue Synthetic Vision Database.
