Visual Computing Lab is under the direction of Dr. Faisal Qureshi and it focuses on research problems that reside at the intersection of computer vision, visual sensor networks, and computer graphics.  Members of VC Lab  are involved in a number of exciting research projects, including:

  • coordination and control in ad hoc networks of visual sensor nodes;
  • integration of mobile cameras into traditional video surveillance networks;
  • nano-scale image analysis;
  • multi-object tracking;
  • streaming frameworks for on-line vision systems;
  • crowd synthesis and analysis;
  • depth and motion estimation from image pairs; and
  • virtual vision — 3D software laboratories for camera networks research.

Information about these projects is available on the research page.
