Enhanced vision

In the University’s Vision Lab, faculty and students are developing new, cutting-edge software and hardware for real-time applications in signal processing, image processing, computer vision, pattern, facial and behavior recognition, artificial neural networks and bio-mimetic object-vision recognition.

Located on the fourth floor of Kettering Labs, the Vision Lab held a blessing and dedication July 12 for its expanded space and its new designation as a Center of Excellence for Computer Vision and Wide Area Surveillance Research. During the event, attendees from the campus community toured the facility and watched as faculty and students explained their research.

Current projects include an automated monitoring system to quickly identify threats or damage to more than 2 million miles of pipeline in the United States and relay information to pipeline operators and first responders.

The Vision Lab employs seven faculty members and has 16 collaborating faculty from other UD departments and outside institutions. Fourteen doctoral students, eight master’s degree students and seven undergraduates are completing work in the lab.

“The Vision Lab is truly a center of excellence,” said Vijay Asari, Ohio Research Scholars chair, Wide-Area Surveillance and Vision Lab director. “It holds excellent opportunities in needed technologies to bring positive change to our campus.”

In April, the University held a dedication and blessing for CETRASE, the Center of Excellence for Thin-Film Research and Surface Engineering. Ten UD researchers with a combined 15 patents and more than 600 publications will focus on ways to improve sensors, electronics, electro-optics and energy systems in their research.
