RHEA

The goal of the EU project “Robot Fleets for Highly Effective Crop Management in Miditerranean Agriculture (RHEA)” is to develop a system for the precise and automatic management of agricultural land by using a fleet of autonomous land and air vehicles. This includes the development of new computer vision algorithms for crop evaluation and weed … Continue reading RHEA

OMOR

The goal of the project is to develop robust and efficient techniques for the recognition and localisation of objects in images and video sequences. This goal can be subdivided into the following aims: Improve the use colour information in object recognition — for example, illumination changes an shadows should be taken into account in the … Continue reading OMOR

Privicy

The goal of Privicy is the development of a surveillance system which automatically respects the privacy of people involved. The contribution of CVL is twofold: a scientific background to the problem and a closer look on robust tracking algorithms. The development includes the following steps: Research on State-of-the-Art people tracker and anonymizing algorithms Evaluation of … Continue reading Privicy

emoCam

Events that made my day – creating a visual diary … or the “emotional camera” project   This project aims at developing techniques and algorithms to be used with a wearable “always-on” camera, which will automatically identify and select the best frames representing the personal “highlights” of the day. “Always-on” wearable cameras are already on … Continue reading emoCam

Computer Aided Classification of Ceramics

This project named Computer Aided Classification of Ceramics is performed in cooperation with the Institute of Classical Archaeology of the University of Vienna in order to automate the documentation process of archaeological sherds. The project is parsupported by the Austrian Science Fund (Fonds zur Förderung der wissenschaftlichen Forschung (FWF)) under Project P13385-INF. The project started … Continue reading Computer Aided Classification of Ceramics

3D Murale

An international team of multimedia content creators, led by Brunel University and with support from the European Union, was developing and using 3D Multimedia tools to measure, reconstruct and visualise archaeological ruins in virtual reality. The ancient city of Sagalassos in Turkey was used as a test case. Within this project a virtual excavation documentation … Continue reading 3D Murale

CASANDRA

Interdisciplinary projects between the field of art history and digital image analysis brought new aspects in both of the fields. While art historians benefit from new objective analysis methods and improved efficiency, for technicians a new field of application and research was opened. In this project a computer aided system to analyze underdrawings in medieval … Continue reading CASANDRA
