Computer Vision Research Group
Computer Vision involves the extraction and interpretation of information from 2- and 3-dimensional images and videos. It plays a key role in enabling autonomous systems to understand and interact with their surroundings. The Computer Vision group performs research within 2D- and 3D-image analysis, video analysis, robot vision, and machine learning. We develop new technologies and solutions for our industrial partners, enabling improved autonomy, quality, reliability, and safety. We have expertise with a large range of sensing modalities and technologies, including visual-spectrum cameras, UV, IR, X-ray, lidar, ultrasound, RGB-D and 3D imagers, and other custom optical sensors.
Image analysis is the extraction of meaningful information from two-dimensional (2D) or three-dimensional (3D) digital images using digital image processing techniques.
Smart design of sensors and onboard AI enables safer, more capable, and more efficient autonomy for unmanned ground vehicles and drones.
