Research Expertise

Description

I'm a member of the GRAPHICS, VISION and VISUALIZATION (GV2) research group. This group is the result of a merger between Computer Vision and Robotics research group (established in 1983) and the Graphics research group. The Computer Vision and Robotics research group has pursued excellence in both academic and industrial research. We have provided engineering solutions to problems which require sensing and physical interaction. The aim of the group is to advance the state of the art in the fields of computer vision and robotics. This has been achieved through research and its validation in practical applications, many of which assume an industrial nature. We're currently doing research in areas such as industrial inspection, visual surveillance, blackjack monitoring, and mobile robotics.
